Cannot make calls now even after using a headphone. Last update has also ruined earphone functionality. Asus please refund my hard earned money!

@Anon, the storage size of the phone is less important on this phone because it is one of the few that has an SDcard slot, so in a way, all versions of this phone are the 2TB model...

Yesterd... moreThen get used to it. I have a Nokia 8 and it's getting problems that could've make customers throw it away but I dealt with it like it's nothing. Gets hot when gaming while charging at the same time, phantom touches like my phone registered touches on areas that I didn't even touch, auto removed fingerprints and the like.
I just don't care and still cherishes it while moving on. I'll act the same on Zenfone 6.
levi, 06 Aug 2019in china rog 2 base price is 3499 yuan =504$ 8/128 for 12/512 - 864$ hmmm.. good deal for gamers If they launch that base model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage for around $500/$600 that is an insane deal! I mean sure, the phone does not have an SD card slot so I can see why some people would want to grab the 512 GB storage model... But I would think 128 GB is enough for most and the extra RAM is more or less pointless unless you're a crazy power-user that uses a hefty amount of applications!

Yesterday I got this and today it's the second day and already all the issues started
1. the display is showing 2 lines on it
2. the phone gets hanged
3. sometime multiple applications starts at at a time automatically and even by pressing home button does not work.
It feels like an untested phone was shipped !

I'm just not sure if it is worth buying over the Zenfone 6... ROG Phone 2 is expected to cost around 900 dollars compared to the 500 dollars that Zenfone 6 is priced at! Also I am not a person who likes to swap out phone every other year so I want a phone for several years which is why I'm worried about screen burn-in which at the same time makes me question if getting a AMOLED phone is stupid and if it would be smarter to choose the Zenfone 6. But with all the call issues and heating issues I read about it here I'm hesitant to go for it as well...

Is this only the case when you use the phone to record video in 4k 60 fps that it reaches these kind of temperatures? For example if you just use it for normal video calls does that pressure the phone in the same way so that it gets really hot in a few minutes? What about when you play the most demanding games available... Does that pressure the phone as much or are the temperature levels fine when gaming?
You are saying that it also reaches these temperatures by just using the camera app and taking photos for 20 minutes and it even shuts down and turns off if you try recording video for too long?
I'm struggling to decide if this heating issue is a big enough problem for me and if I am better off going for Asus ROG Phone 2 which I would assume has solid cooling since it is intended for gaming and has special design with this in mind... The price difference will probably be pretty big however and I'm also worried about AMOLED display and burn-ins which is why I was thinking to buy the Zenfone 6 since it has LCD!
Anyone here with some advice on whether to go for this Zenfone 6 or wait for the upcoming ROG Phone 2?

Call quality issues REMAIN, unfortunately.
Phone gets hot because of the way the 2 motherboards are sandwiched together without a heat sink provision - this is clearly revealed and highlighted in Jerry's teardown video.
Any news about availability for the USA? I'd love it if there was a new model, but I doubt Asus will do one.
