I'm using this phone since October 2019. Everything was smooth and fully satisfied with the performance. But for last two days battery is draining fast. 100% get trained in 7 hrs. Even though Wifi, mobile network are not connected, battery is getting drain very fast. What might be the reason?
Amazing phone. Period. Unfortunately Asus messed up with its default launcher on Android 11. There is no option to select icon packs anymore.
This phone is full package. Great cam, front cam, great battery life, great performance. But yet so boring sometimes, idk maybe it has small screen or the UI is not so good. Smaller screen means less immersive for me. But when I switch to $200 xiaomi, i'm so grateful using zenfone 6.
Dont know what to call it. Task text? is hanging like way too long and is taking space. Like if a try to upload a picutre directly from phone to the net i get like "picture could not be uploaded" that text info is haning like annoyingly long time. How do i fix this? startig to pi..me off alot. Android 11 issue? or just my phone.
To answer myself:
I just figured how lol :)
Android 11 update is full of bugs. First, the native Asus launcher constantly regains Home definition, stealing the configuration from third party launchers. Constantly, I go home only to face Asus launcher instead of Action (happens with Nova as well). Second, I constantly have to wait two seconds or so after choosing a recent application for it to come to foreground, while before it was instantaneous. The battery is also lasting way less than before, even after many days now. Also, Asus does not respect the icons of applications in the recents panel, choosing a very weird thick white border with its own icon theme, creating a jarring inconsistent appearance to the overall Android looks. It is hideous and completely in bad taste, tacky and reminds me of an ugly skin from 2010. Stop messing with the appearance of Android if you are a layman creating tacky appearances with bad taste. I regret not buying a Pixel, but then again all my previous 4 Pixel/Nexus devices failed very early (Pixel mic, 5X bootloop, 5 power button, Nexus S front camera), so at this point I'm just full of this BS. I'm waiting next month to buy an IPhone. I'm full of Android BS.
Is it just me or the screen is not so bright? To compare i use my old htc u11 and it looks like htc is easily brighter .50% looks good on htc but not on Z6 . I have to adjust the light to almost full on asus to get a decent bright screen. I just bought the phone secondhand .It's barely used and 2months old from the shop.
At least i think the phone can match my u11 when it comes to sound. I mean i do listen to music more than i pretend to be a "photographer" .
Also is there a tap to wakeup function? like htc :)
Should i update the phone to android 11?
Hello fellow 6z enthusiasts! Now that the phone is out of warranty, how to safely remove useless Google apps, facebook messenger, etc.? I still do not want to compromise security of my 6z. Thanks.

While scrolling sometimes the display changes color arbitarily, from normal white tone to warm tone. I have turned off all automatic display settings but still happens sometimes. Does anyone have a fix to this? Thanks.
Hello, sometimes my Zenfone 6 is "losing" incoming sms messages. They just do not appear. I made tests and I am sure there were messages sent to me. Anybody else experiences similar issues?
Hello guys. After last update my phone is stuck in a boot loop. I can only reach ASUS logo screen or sometimes when I plug it in I can see a lightning logo but without percentage. I tried volume + button and power button together to reach safe mode but it doesn't work at all. Only power button or power button and volume - button together works to reach the only screens I can see. Please help.
ZenFone 6 has no display problem. I turn it off & charge it at night. when i wake up, i see something is wrong, my alarm is ringing but the screen is black. Do you guys have issue like my ZenFone 6?
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2020Lol, comparing this 2019 phone to that so-called "vastly superior" 2020 phone. Weird... moreIt's not weird when they're priced almost exactly the same m8. Not my problem if that's what the market is like. I'm comparing a slightly below $500 phone to a slightly below $500 phone.
joe nodden, 09 Sep 2020No it's not "overpriced in my country". It's overpriced in every country. ... moreLol, comparing this 2019 phone to that so-called "vastly superior" 2020 phone. Weird flex, but ok.
Sid, 08 Sep 2020Maybe it's overpriced in your country. It's absolute value for money everywhere else... moreNo it's not "overpriced in my country". It's overpriced in every country. Tell me a single country where it doesn't go for around $500. For less than that you can get the vastly superior Poco F2 Pro.
And ok so tell me, what on the spec sheet is wrong outside of the outdated Android version. How am I "spreading misinformation all the time". Tell me. Don't just add a reply to the already closed discussion, requiring my reply, without adding anything at all. That's halfwitted.
joe nodden, 15 Apr 2020Nope it very much is very expensive for what it offers.Maybe it's overpriced in your country. It's absolute value for money everywhere else. You have no clue what this device brings to the table and keep spreading misinformation all the time. You even said the device stayed on Android pie and never got updates. Clearly shows that you have some agenda in spreading wrong info about Asus. 6z got Android 10 in Nov 2019 and got 25+ updates ever since. So , stfu and leave the forum . If you don't know or own the device, stop spreading lies.
Supi, 22 Aug 2020The worst phone o ever had!!!This is a simply midrange phone,if I knew in time..:(!Lol, Snapdragon 855 is NOT a midrange chipset. It's a flagship-tier chipset, which means this Asus IS indeed a flagship phone. Please get your facts right!
