With the new update my phone's battery can hold much longer than it was before. It works smoothly almost in every aspect but only one thing that triggers me ...to adjust the alarm volume and others it will directly brings you to the settings which interrupts me when playing games. My overall opinion, the phone is still in amazing performance.
The new Android Pie updates almost has no issues.
Maybe the most obvious one being the wide angle camera focus indicator do not turn into green color after image is focused.
Others issue can be view on ASUS Zentalk forum, non of these happen on my device. My gyroscope and accelerometer works, GPS works, 4G+ and voice call are ok.
Some one did say the size of wallpaper on lockscreen and homescreen is not the same, this is because the "Motion Effect" function is turned on.
Just received an update for around 1022 MB,
If anyone has updated then do reply if there is any issue with the latest version.
Javed Khan , 25 Jan 2019Will Zenfone 5Z get android pie update this year or we need to wait until 2020? I manage to update to Android Pie few days ago manually via ASUS official website, but somehow they have taken down the update for no reason (download link is taken down) , maybe there are still problems on the new Android Pie updates.
The update posted date is 22 Jan 2019, I get to see the link and description on the support page by 24 Jan 2019 and I downloaded and updated on the same day.
Well, just maybe, you need to wait longer for the official stable updates to be rolling out.
The manual update download link actually still alive, but I can't posted here.

Official Android Pie upgrade for Zenfone 5z is rolling out.
If don't want to wait for OTA update, can go to official ASUS website to download the 1.7GB zip file into the phone internal storage and manually do the update.
I have updated since this morning, so far no issue.

GenuineComments, 21 Jan 2019big batteries and shit performances are for mid ranges. Flagships always had asshles batteries... moreThat concern how big a phone and heavy need to be made too.
I think in future all smart would at least pack in 4000mah battery, but not at this moment.
Of course adding bigger battery capacity is not the absolute solution, using lower powered screen such as AMOLED, and using lower powered SoC, and OS and apps optimization also will improve battery life.
GenuineComments, 21 Jan 2019yes in your dreamsThis is a yes and no answer.
It is very common to see everyone complains when they updated to Android Pie and face many problem and bugs and request to rollback to Android Oreo instead and wait for the more stable Android Pie updates rather than get used to those issues.
So, don't be so proud of those phone that get fast Android Pie updates, stability is much more important than just rushing for updates.
Of course you can always flame that ASUS is very slow in upgrading their Android version, but please be realistic on those updates, it need time to test and stabilized.
Rob, 16 Jan 2019Can't see anyone challenging Xiaomi in the budget android sector ATM but think the only one ma... moreYou should check out the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 and ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 which use SD636 and SD660 processor and priced competitively against others. OPPO I know now they have the Realme brand, which also priced competitively at the same price range.
Third competitor would be the Honor brand, which also take a good fight.
Again, at my country, I can officially bought ASUS, Xiaomi, Realme and Honor branded smartphones, which might not sold at worldwide region.
Surya, 18 Jan 2019How soon will get the Official Pie update over Mobile.. Is there any particular date...yes in your dreams
