Google Camera pictures are more saturated making it looks like it has more detail compared to Asus current camera app that takes a slightly bright pictures hence the lower perceive details viewed on the Zenfone 5z screen.
But both pictures looks the same on my Mac except the Google camera pictures are oversaturated.
I will only use Google Camera for Night Sight, when needed, because it is generally buggy as the apk is not made for Asus Zenfone 5z.
Symbianz107, 18 Oct 2019Is there any ghost touch issue on this like Poco F1 seen on YouTube people are reportingNo ghost touch ... but it is definitely more sensitive than my previous Zenfone. A few mm before you touch the naked screen, it will trigger. But once a screen protector it applied, this sensitivity goes away. This is what I noticed on mine.

Nightsight helps big time in low light, and videos are better as well with better colours and detail, only it's sad that it lacks 4k 60fps.

the design of this phone is very beautiful,and glad it came with headphone jack and fm radio
Can someone explain what A, B and C versions of the 5z refer to? Are they the ITU regions? For example, the Americas fall under Region 2 as per ITU. Would that imply that the 'B' version of the 5z is sold in the Americas and the LTE bands are compatible with that region?
very bag mobile only one yerr two time my mobile sarvis center

I was curious about the Google Camera app that has appeared in many of my Zenfone 5z search and apparently it was better so I went and test 2 versions of it.
Conclusion is the Google Camera sucks as it is not optimised for Zenfone 5z. Pictures are blur, focus is wrong and colours are a bit off. The fake blur is also horrible. Don't waste your time with Google Camera.

For case lovers, if you are looking for a good case and screen protector, RhinoShield is your best option.
I have tried one cheap case with the corner bumpers but it was too thin for my liking. The included Asus transparent case is much better than this cheap China one.
RhinoShield screen protector seems thinner and clearer compared to the included Asus screen protector.
About the low sound volume that Zenfone 5z users are complaining about .. I did notice it was not as loud as my Zenfone 2 Laser out of the box but since the 5z is suppose to have better sound, I hunker down and started adjusting my equaliser.
In default setting, my normal speaker volume was about 3/4 but with the equaliser done up, my normal speaker volume is about 50%... about 25% drop.
My recommendation for settings is to use the included Asus earphones. Go to AudioWizard, tap on the Headphone symbol on the top right.
Then use the Listening profile to check where you need to boost in your equaliser. As you go older, you will loose your ability to heard higher pitches, so you will need to boost this section of the equaliser.
Once the test is done and I know where to adjust in the equaliser settings, I will abandon the profile. I do not want to lock down the profile as I have many different connections for the earphone jack so a specific profile was not practical. When you are happy with the equaliser settings, Bass and Treble should be 5 or above, then copy and paste to the speaker settings. It should work better than default.
Since my first Zenfone, I noticed that Asus keep all their settings at default so it could be a bad Out Of The Box experience. So you will need to get to know your Zenfone to make it work really well to your liking.
Even for the "bad battery life" cry babies, there are battery profiles but not activated by default. So use it. You do not need your phone fully active the whole time you are a sleep. If you do not sleep then many phones will not suit you. There are many other reason for bad battery life but that is mainly user error or in rare occasion, hardware fault. My battery last more than a day as I do not stand under the sunlight for a lengthy period ;X
