Hey Zenseis
If you're waiting for the October Update for your ASUS 5Zs and still haven't received the OTA-update via Settings or through notifications; hi-fives cuz you're not the only one.

Good news is, you may aswell do the update manually from here:

I have been using Asus-products for quite a while and in-fact, update-rollouts being kinda-slow is a very Asus-thing and that's somewhat acceptable for them trying to minimize server-overloads. But there, you have the direct-link to download the whole update-package so, cheers!

The update procedure is simple: copy the downloaded-ZIP to your phone's storage (preferably on the internal-drive but external works too) and wait for a few seconds. You'll automatically get an update-prompt notification. The things after that are quite obvious then I reckon ;)


1. Adjustment of the battery percentage.
2. Fix face-unlock issues.
3. Added support for the "Selfie-Panorama" mode in the PixelMaster Camera.

All the best and keep in zen!
- Mritz.

I was going to buy an external DAC and Amp specially for the relatively-diminished audio (volume) output of the ASUS 5Z. I haven't updated the phone yet but if you're saying that the loudness and clarity have increased; I think I'll be one of the happiest earthling if not the most 😅 I really care about sound being an audiophile and producer.

Speaking of the SOT, I think it is because of the presence of the ZenUI-skin and the absence of an AMOLED panel - why I say this is because the skin consumes more resources and the AMOLED-panel would've helped preserve battery-juice for obvious reasons - put eveything dark or black (wherever possible) and you have a longer SOT; which is the case as in OnePlus 6. Plus, their version of Android is so much more stock and lightweight so yeah.

I don't think Asus will ever be able to increase the SOT for the above reasons; this is the best you can get out of this device I reckon. Sorry folks.
P.S.: Manually-updating the device will not wipe data on your phone. Cheers!
