Zenfone 9 issues - consolidated list of all issues

SVB
Rising Star II

Hi Everyone, I have been using Zenfone 9 for quite a while. These issues are listed after using software version WW/EU_33.0804.2060.189. I request all of Zenfone 9 fans and users to keep putting your valid issues here so that Asus will take a note of it. As zenfone 9 is a niche phone, if we won't raise a voice here, then Asus might not pay attention to it.

1. GPS: GPS taken 5-6 seconds every time to fetch my location and this is across all the apps. On google maps too, it takes time to detect location after I turn on GPS. Also, during using navigation when I am walking on foot, the direction of the arrow is incorrect. It is incorrect by 30 degrees or so. I hope Asus fixes this perfectly with a software update. 

2. Voice after making a call: On incoming or outgoing normal call, for the 1st 2-3 seconds, the other person can't hear our voice at all. We have to wait 2-3 seconds and then speak 90-95% of times. This is the most annoying and critical bug.

3. Wi-Fi icon on status bar: When Wi-Fi is already on and you swipe down notification panel only once, the Wi-Fi icon is not filled with the color of the notification menu. If my notification color is blue then the icon should be in white with the circle colored in blue.

4. Notifications delay: How can a phone with snapdragon 8+ gen 1 and 8 gb of RAM cannot send notifications as soon as they come? For many apps, the notifications are delayed, viz WhatsApp, Instagram, SMSes and so more. Asus, please fix this or just remove notification option completely because what's the use of delayed notifications?

5. Camera: Turn on HDR and you are a tomato coloured different person altogether. Overprocessing in zenfone 9 camera is so aggressive and inconsistent that the app feels useless sometimes. Selfie camera is good though. @asus, you sell this phone with gimbal as the main feature and can't even make sure Camera is the best thing that this phone must have? Please fix it.

I request moderators and Asus developers, if any, on this website to take a note of these and fix those on priority before software support for this phone expires.

@all Zenfone 9ers: Please copy and paste your issues here even if you have posted them before or mention the new ones here. So that all these issues get highlighted at one single place.

Thanks for the list. Agreed with all of the point

Wonder why they release such a bugged FW.

Why there are no answers from anyone from Asus? We are working as testers here and i think we deserve at least an comment and some kind of explanation about their plans!

they clearly just don't care lol

I read an article that Asus doesn't have the staffing to update their devices regularly.  It was part of the decision to increase support longer for the ZF10.  Not sure if it is real or not but the people that do work there might just be overwhelmed.   At any rate, you are correct, these are not a priority for them.  They seem to release updates on a quarterly'sh basis these days to avoid Android itself flagging the phone as a security risk (as mine did last time) so maybe they get fixed by the end of the year?  It really is a shame, I like the phones.

Following up on the list of issues:

 

If you enable Notification history in the settings and restart the phone, then it is disabled.
