After releasing the Nougat Software Update for the ASUS Zenfone 3 Max 5.5 (ZC553KL) last May 15, 2017, there are several users report some bugs and negative feedbacks that they have encountered after they upgrade to the latest software version. These includes; faster battery drain, after dialing the *143# or *121# not all choices are shown, and auto-brightness issue. So to prevent the number of complainants, it seems like Asus has to stop the rolling out of the said update.
But here it comes again! Like what they say, “Come Back Is Real!” Some of the members of the ASUS ZenFone 3 Max 5.5 Philippines Community and I have already updated our units. And based on our observation, all of the bugs present on the past update are NOW FIXED!
And of course, comes with the update are some improvements with design brought by the Nougat implementation. Here the some of the changes we seen so far:
- The notification panel added an animation when you pulled it down
- The quick settings now houses 3×4 icon table which has two drawers and has added new icons like the different camera shortcuts and the multi-window support for apps.
- Inside the Settings>Display, you can now change the display size which makes the items on your screen smaller or larger.
- We also have noticed a quick Settings Index which is accessible on the upper left corner of the screen when you are inside the different sections inside the Settings.
Unfortunately, no additional details have been released with the new update. So if you want to experience the Nougat version, find your luck and head to your Settings>System Update and click the Check Update button.
