There are a lot of things that changed my phone's experience after the A10 update. 1. The phone now overheats while charging using the 30 Watt adapter as well as 18 Watt adapter. 2. Gaming performance reduced a lot specifically Pubg where frame drops and desync is now. Becoming a normal behaviour, checked the wifi and it's stable. The phone overheats while keeping the graphic settings to High, anti- aliasing also was disabled. 3. Ran Geekbench score after updating to A10 and see my score, you will be shocked and it even lists below One plus 6. I am reporting these issues within not even a week of upgrade but this is important to report as this phone is still with a lot of bugs after updating to Android 10
I just used the official downgrade package and installed android 9. Honestly, android 10 is really bad! I tested the antutu benchmark it was around 4 lakhs. That's it! Not even 4.1 lakhs! Which is very very low compared to the original score of 5 lakhs! Animations are a bit smooth not gonna lie, but then there is this heating issue! Even in normal day to day usage phone heats jussst a little bit! But in android 9 its cold af! And obviously sot is not that great either, I noticed that while playing pubg and asphalt 9! I just got frustrated and reinstalled android 9. And when I tested again, guess what, antutu score is 4.9 lakhs! Around 5 lakhs which is amazing! My beast is back! To all the gamers out there, install android 9 from the official firmware page of asus if you want that godly performance back! Otherwise if you want some good features of android 10 but with a bit of a downside then enjoy! Your choice!
This is the Antutu benchmark (android 9 vs android 10) results on Rog Phone II 8/128, Room/Ambient Temperature: 26°C, Phone Surface Temperature: 34°C (Measured with infrared thermometer) I also have no fps stuttering issues, call quality is great, also no battery draining issues or overheating issues in daily usage
