mine, so far no issue on the fingerprint.

called asus hotline, for any phone repair, have to go to lowyat service centre, other centres not be able to service. sending my device to replace the camera lens glass, hopefully wont take long and not cut throat since got no choice. barely 2 weeks old phone.

...once in a while, on chrome, screen freeze when browsing...swipe also not moving, dont know wat is the problem, chrome or the software, or touch screen or ram issue....

Chrome has been problematic for some
Better use alternative browser in this case

Surprisingly mine has no issue with the fingerprint scanner. Could it be your finger is oily or too dry?
Definitely not since the display was clean without oily smudge when repeatedly tested. Heck, oily finger was obviously my first assumption lol so I've ensured that was not the reason. laugh.gif
Yes, the issue still occurs randomly regardless in dry or wet condition.

Since most of us didn't have similar issues like mine so most likely defect I guess. A bit unlucky here since the sensor is not straight away broken but random, so it's difficult to prove for warranty claim. Even my new Samsung S22 with their inferior ultrasonic fingerprint sensor compared with most optical under display sensors is way better detection rate than my Zenfone 8, so that's should tell something. rolleyes.gif

Honestly i wouldnt even mind if the finger print sensor was at the back or side.
These traditonal sensors are way better than the so called sophisticated under display sensors.I have a hard time finding a suitable SP and my sensor developed a hardware failure once.

gotten back my phone yesterday. replaced with new LCD cover (back cover with glass lens cover & flash light set), cost RM164. So far, so good. I guess got ready stock for LCD cover, thus repair time less than a week.

BTW, what is your latest firmware number? 31.1010.0410.72 ?

one last question, how long is the battery life? can last whole day with 60hz refresh rate? usually i spend 4 hours web browsing, facebook, shopee and utube.

saw someone sell zenfon 8 for 1.1k with minor chip at the edge of the screen.

I set mine to auto. With auto or 60hz you have more than enough juice to do what you mentioned above.

Too expensive to justify to be honest. At that price point, I expect it to be near perfect, at least matching the S22 bezel uniformity, tele lense and wireless charging.
