  • Touch Issue

The ZenFone 5Z has a multi-touch issue since its launch that, ignored by the brand, seems to have never even been analysed.

The problem can best be seen, just as I detected it, playing first and third person games that use the two-thumb control scheme.

It turns out that when we slide a finger on the screen, the response is smooth, as well as with three or four fingers. However, when we slide two fingers on the screen, not only does the sensitivity decrease, but the latency increases.
There's an application on the Play Store called "MultiTouch Tester".

With the application open:
Slide one finger on the screen (preferably slowly for a better view of the effect) and notice how smooth it is.
Now hold one finger anywhere on the screen, and with another finger, slide slowly as you watch the graphic response to your command stutter.

It's hard to see it through the test app if you don't have another device to compare.
But it's very...observable...in games like Identity V or PUBG.
If you start a game, and use two finger, one you will hold on screen to move you character, another you will slighly, slowly slide to move camera. You'll see the effect, it destroys any "flagship experience" you could have playing on this phone.

Here are some videos that demonstrate the situation:

In the first video, a comparison that demonstrates the ZenFone 5's ironic victory over 5Z:

In the second, a full screen view of how problematic camera control and aiming accuracy become in games:

The third, in fact, is a YouTube channel, where videos are posted that demonstrate the same effect to two-touch controls:

Searching YouTube and ZenTalk isn't hard to find more users having the same problem either. From the reports, it is present in all 5Z, in any version, ever since.

For those with Android 10, can you still hide the notch? If yes, it is the same as before or they finally made rounded corners?

I damaged mine due to rough use and looking for something similar. Will be better if i could get the official one from any re-sellers.

If you can't afford to buy if they add these features, then just forget about it.
ASUS has tried to add these features before on their previous generation of Zenfone, and they failed miserably, simply because they can't compete with Samsung, and Huawei. They turn different direction with this 5z and then 6 for different niche market that appreciate lower price, less premium features, but still remain high quality.

You can only blame durability issue when the phone get spoiled if you never drop it.
Please don't generalize every smartphone drop is the same. It is really a question if you really lucky enough to not spoil your phone, or you are really bad luck, one serious drop cause the phone to malfunction.
