The latest update (2018-07-05) seems to have fixed the problem of the camera app under Oreo. Previously the app would be "half frozen" and I couldn't focus on objects I want. Now it focus instantly like it used to before the Oreo update.
The OS is also more staple now. Previously the Oreo OS would crush often. Now it is fixed.
Very happy so far. Been using this phone for over a year and still going strong.

got the phone for 2 days now, updated it to oreo an now the screen is like made of bars??? ruining the quality, can anyone help?
god i miss my LG's
I've been using Zoom S for one month.
I got this phone with Nougat update 7.0
Then I had to update twice...
At last I got 8.0 oreo update.
Well I though there will be some changes with the oreo update
But I found no major changes ...
And the Portrait mode is good ,Shutter speed of portrait mode is fast..
Camera quality for 12MP is not bad.
Much details ...
OIS and EIS helps in better stabilisation
only for 1080p .. no EIS/OIS support for 1080p 60fps and 4K
And Battery standby is good for 2 days or normal use..
Front camera is 13MP , it's not bad .. good in details.
And the dual flash is not working... I don't know whether it's a CCT flash or not.
My Lenovo vibe X3 had dual flash a CCT flash and it changes according to the temperature...
well on zoom s I found no changes in the dual flash ..
Always flashes white flash..
And Asus is saying it support quick charge...
Asus Boost master ...
And where is that .. it takes about 3 - 3:30 hrs to full charge..
From the day of the first usage I found no hang/lag.
There is some bug in the camera app...
Sometime it shows ' Camera app isn't responding '
The Portrait mode is best ....
I got this Beast for 16K on flipart .
If u r buying a best phone ..
go for Xiaomi MI Note 5 pro .. and the Later models...
Asus is not bad...
Lenovo Z5 , Asus 5 ... , Nokia , few full display models are coming with good cameras... wait nd go for it
Do not upgrade your zoom 3 to oreo yet. you phone will start to use lots of ram after that causing your phone to slow down. wait for a better version of oreo
i used for a year already, suddenly the phone cannot charge the battery, it mention "CHARGING PORT TEMPERATURE ABNORMALITIES REMINDER" i always used original cable and adaptor. somebody please help me..
I love this phone for its batterylife and camera above all but the oreo update completely wrecked the fingerprint reader for me. Takes forever for it to even register the fact that I pressed the scanner and have to do it multiple times in failure which is awkward considering alot of my apps are opened by fingerprint now
I just purchased the zenfone zoom s 2 days back but when i insert the sd card and try to open it, it is not showing sd card

I need to find a camera centric smartphone since i already had a DSLR. Once again, thnk you. ^^
After last update to "oreo" the most apps don't work at all. Chrome, outlook, onenote, bluemail, navigator, etc, and other apps from banks and other well known organization or companies. I did a lot of times factory reset but nothing. I don't know what happen. Have any other this kind of problem?
Dr.Debashish, 18 May 2018I hv been using ZenFone zoom s for 8months.It takes stunning photos.One can use google camera ... moreThe camera hardware which sounds slightly better than Galaxy S8/Note8, I expected little bit more from this one. I tested with my friends which he used Galaxy S8+, the S8+ takes little bit better lowlight photos than this one. Yes, ZF3Z takes lowlight scenes pretty good enough, but you can tell the difference between this one with S8+ if you put side by side.

Nekomimi, 02 May 2018Hello, could you give me some sample of this phone zoom capabilities. I really want to see it.... moreI own one and I think that the zoom is pretty standard, does its job but just like any other phone. I dont think this phone was intended to have an extraordinary zoom, it is just a name like Samsung Galaxy is not related to the space or galaxy. Hope this helps

See every images in hi-res so you can see every details on every images.
For me, after using it for a weeks I'm barely happy with the results, as their word "8x brighter low-light photos" doesn't live up expectations. Daylight photos was incredible but low-light could be better. I think it could be solved via software updates, as their hardware was same with Google Pixel 2 XL and capable enough to beat Galaxy S8/Note8. I don't expect the camera will performed same as Pixel 2 XL but it should be come pretty close. Back to your question, yes I'm Malaysian :=)
