Software

Alright, time to talk about ZenUI again. Equipped within the ASUS ZenFone 4 is ZenUI 4, but I’m unsure if ASUS had pushed any updates since ZenUI 4.0, because the ZenFone 4’s user experience is… different from others.

Throughout my experience with ASUS smartphones, I’ve seen different smartphones from ASUS with different hardware having a different software experience entirely. It’s possible that ASUS is adding and removing features from ZenUI depending on what hardware a particular smartphone model has.

This time around, Android 8.0 Oreo update is available for the ASUS ZenFone 4, and I have updated and currently using it while writing this review.

TheĀ ASUS ZenFone 4 has this weird little notice at the notification that says Facebook Messenger is drawing on top of other apps when the chat head is active. I find it very annoying – as I’m always using Facebook Messenger and the chat head is always active.

Who thought this is a good idea?

I know what I’m doing, and ASUS doesn’t seem to have an option to disable that.

Other than that, ASUS has finally added the rolling screenshot. It’s a feature that I’ve been begging ASUS to add since the days of ZenFone 3, and I’m really glad that they finally do. Though, there are a few quirks here and there. For example, the chat head will be in the screenshot every single roll you take.

One more characteristic I realized about ZenUI on theĀ ASUS ZenFone 4 is the animation. For some reason, ASUS really takes advantage of the extra processing horsepower that’s available here. Animations are more flamboyant and ASUS really did sprinkle them all around.

Speaking of extra processing power, that leads us to the next section – the performance.
