That is right, a software update that actually breaks the hardware. I owned a ZF3 for 3 months and dumped it. It is the only phone I ever owned that cannot cannot connect to a car's bluetooth and Asus actually suggested that I change my car.
Love the Features

The other phones have much smaller batteries but other features are better than poco.

Senju, 04 Sep 2018I'm already using LG G6. I like the build qualI'm using LG G6 currently. I like their build quality, IP rating and audio quality. Camera i s also good. The only con I'm finding in LG G7+ is the battery. If it was 3500mAh, I would have bought it without any further thinking.

What is the battery life of Asus Zenfone 5Z??
I want to buy a new phone. Confused between Asus Zenfone 5Z, Poco F1 and LG G7+..
Battery, audio and camera are priority.
there's no need to following the stupid trend that is bezelless (or less bezell) + notch, it's so uncomfortable and the notch is ugly to look
Neil, 03 Sep 2018In my country, This phone is harder to find than Pocophone F1. Are you in China
I bought my Zenfone 5 ZE620KL with SD636 on July 9 2018. It's a mid-range version, but the phone is very good and the price is cheap for it's class. Although I'm still in Android 8.0, I already received 7 software updates from ASUS. I'm so please with these updates, and to me ASUS is a responsible company.
After using two weeks Zenfone 5Z I must wonder this review. I think there must be troubles with camera, maybe moisture behind lens or maybe grease on camera lens. No troubles with the speakers even.

However I've used their fonepad 7, one of the best budget tablet/phone for it's time for 3 years without a problem, and now I have a padfone E which has been working relentlessly for 3 years with no problems other than the smallish ram for these days, I've owned many brands and this one is really suitable for a workhorse.
People who've owned ZF3 around me couldn't be happier with its performance and camera (and price). And it got upgraded to oreo with their recent zenUI iterations they're even better.
As for the hardware breaking thing, many OTAs could be incompatible with some hardware, ever heard of S8 losing WIFI after an updae? I did.
also unlike many OEMs, Asus offers bootloader unlock on their site which can be easily applied, and ZF5z has started to get custom ROMs with treble. And switching back to the original ROM is a breeze, you'd lose OTA updates, however.
For the price, Asus has made less compromises than competitors IMO and still delivered a great device. My country has the 5 variant, and I'm waiting for the Z to arrive.
They need to review after the latest system update, camera are optimized and amazing after the system update, i also notice the antutu score is not accurate in the benchmark review. i score about 172k now but before the update camera is worse that review are the old review. new update fixed all bugs and the camera too.

An incomplete review is simply unacceptable by gsmarena, given its usually high standards.
This review is like reading the review of a new car, which checks out the doors, tyres, seats, music system and lights, but decides not to check its engine and then absolves itself with a silly disclaimer.
Without subjecting the phone to all the usual tests, a half-hearted review is not only unacceptable and incomplete, it's also incompetent.
Sorry, but gsmarena let us down this big time and the many angry reactions in this comments section echo that dismay
