ZenFone 6 User Group – Share Advice, Tips, Troubles with other owners

We are grateful to have a strong group of visitors to our website who are keen on the ZenFone 6. In years past, we’ve covered ASUS tablets and had some excellent user group articles that were very helpful to the community.

Given the wide ranging success of the ZenFone 6, this seems like the perfect time to try the same with the ZenFone 6. We didn’t consider this up until now because in all honesty, most of the other generations of ZenFone models didn’t sell well enough to generation much of a user group community.

Can we make this work together? A lot of you are starting to receive your orders and will be looking for advice or tips when it comes to your new device. Whether that’s accessories, best settings, troubleshooting, we hope that you can make use of the comment section here and create some Q&A’s or general tips that you think people should know about.

I’ll offer one. This is not so much exclusive to the ZenFone 6, but it’s a tip for using Google’s Gboard. Some of you know about this, but for those of you who don’t? You’re going to love it and use this feature every day.

The Gboard spacebar is like a trackpad. In other words, when you need to move the cursor around, you simply use the spacebar to move the cursor. No need to try and be precise with the finger in hopes of inserting a letter that you might have left out of a word. You can edit your text messages in a snap!

So who’s first? Go ahead and start in the comment section and let’s see what the community can build. I’m hoping that people who received their ZenFone 6 will still consider coming back to the site, but that’s not a sure thing. Have a question? Post it below and see who will answer it!

    ZenUI Calculator can also be a currency and unit convertor. Sliding its numeral keyboard allows you to access to other mathematical functions.

    I’ve had a pretty good experience so far. The battery life seems to be great, and the screen looks quite good. The camera unit seems like it could be improved, though. It makes a slight noise when the phone shakes, even though it’s not floppy. Also, if you ask it to reduce the angle when it’s already closed, the motor still tries to move the unit (it should have software that blocks retraction when the unit is already retracted). The Asus clock app doesn’t seem to let you dismiss alarms before they ring, unlike Google’s app.

      Have you fiddled with the camera calibration to see if that fixes the noise issue? I’m curious to know!

        I tried the camera calibration but it didn’t seem to make a difference. Luckily the sounds from the camera motor and of the camera module moving slightly are really quiet, so I can’t hear them in anything but an almost silent room. The photos look pretty decent so far! I also installed the Google Camera apk, and it’s hard for me to tell a major difference from the stock camera app, so it looks like Asus did a pretty good job on the photo processing software.
