We are the same lol my previous phone is LG G4 too. The camera is probably needs to have a app update. But its alot faster than the LG G4. I'm happy now using this unit. Hopefully it will last because I have problems with G4 it goes hot quickly and replaced the motherboard twice.
I have this phone for 2 weeks now, and i must say it is a very smooth and fast phone, compared to my old LG G4. Except the camera (software) is a little dissapointing. The photo quality is about as good as the G4, except there's no possibilty to shoot RAW with the zenfone. Also the autofocus is not as accurate (more hunting for focus) especially in low light.
The automatic exposure adjustment when recording video is not as smooth as the G4.
The overall video quality is also not very good compared to LG G4, with G4 i was able to record crispy smooth motion 60fps full hd video. with zenfone the video is more jerky. is seems to drop frames every second. Also low light videoquality is very grainy and muddy compared to LG.
However i don't think it's a hardware issue with the zenfone, but software related.
Asus needs to improve the camera software. Propably the video is recorded with too low bitrate.
It would be nice if asus would unlock full camera2api to allow other camera apps to use full potential of the hardware.
A "pro video settings section" just like the "pro photo section" would be nice, to give the user more control over bitrate , framerate , shutterspeed, diaphragm etc.
Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice phone, but the camera (software), especially the videopart needs more refinement.

after 2 months of usage, it automatically reboots itself, its very annoying, guys Vivo V9 is way better
Audio quality ever since the last update has been abysmal. Extremely low volume & distortion via headphones. AudioWizard isn't helping at all.
Completely disappointed. If this problem persists, I will sell this phone and will never buy Asus again.

Chink, 15 Jul 2018Very poor while record video. Too Noisy. I think nothing is perfect for a medium low price phone. But overall this phone is the best in its price range.
If we have enough money why not go for Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
