Asus ZenFone 5Z screen brightness, system freeze, wrong battery usage stats & more issues fixed in latest update

It feels good when a new update notification pops up on your device. This is simply because you expect the update to bring either some new features or improvements to the existing ones. However, this has not been the case with Asus ZenFone 5Z lately.

Users have been facing a lot of problems with the device while Asus is trying its best to rectify these issues. Now, Asus has released an update for the ZenFone 5Z that includes fixes for system freezing, abrupt high screen brightness, and many more issues.

ZenFone 5Z-July-Update

The Russian, Indian, and Global update version is now available with an updated Android security patch and some more improvements. Here are the release notes provided by the OEM:

[Release Note]

1. Updated Android security patch
2. Fixed the screen brightness suddenly brightens occasionally
3. Fixed system freeze issue if user leave the device for 50 seconds
4. Fixed misjudgment of battery usage
5. Fixed the occasional screen flashing twice when opening the screen
6. Adjusted gesture navigation to return to Home animation

Released back in 2018, Asus ZenFone 5Z received its Android 10 update in 2019 and has been receiving security updates since then. While these updates offered latest security patches, smartphone users also started facing many issues.


Asus ZenFone 5Z also received an update in June that brought the May security patch along with some other fixes. However, there was still some tweaking left as reports of new issues started to come from users.

This update appears to be a good sign as users can now use their devices without running into too many problems. Hopefully, Asus has managed to get rid of all the major bugs and issues with this update.
