ASUS ZenFone 4 Max updated to Android 8.1 Oreo with ZenUI 5.0

Monday, October 15th, 2018

We're currently on the fifth generation of ASUS ZenFone devices, but that doesn't mean that previous models have been (entirely) forgotten. The ZenFone 4 Max has just begun receiving its update to Android 8.1 Oreo, which also includes ASUS's ZenUI 5.0 skin. This is a few months behind schedule, but at least it's here now.

This update carries version number 15.2016.1809.412. There are two release notes, and they don't tell us much:

  • Update OS to Android 8.1.0 Oreo.

Asus rolling out Android 8.1 Oreo to the ZenFone 4 Selfie

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Asus launched the ZenFone 4 Selfie last year, with the highlight feature being its dual 20MP front-facing cameras. The phone initially shipped with Android 7.1, but just like Asus promised a year ago, it's now receiving an update to Android Oreo.

The update has a software version of 15.0400.1809.405, and Asus says it will take about a week to roll out to all users. In addition to everything that Android 8.0 and 8.1 bring (the Selfie skipped 8.0), like adaptive icons and notification channels, the update also has version 5.0 of the ZenUI skin.

The Asus ROG Phone launches in the US October 18th for $899

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

Asus has been making Republic of Gamers (ROG) products for years, but they've mostly been in the PC gaming realm. Now, ROG is a phone brand, too. The previously announced ROG Phone is about to reach US consumers. It's coming October 18th, but it won't be cheap. Asus wants $899 for the phone, and that's without the fancy gaming accessories.

The ROG Phone has high-end specs like all the supposed "gaming phones," but it also includes a few features that could actually make it better for playing games.

Asus reveals another low-end Chromebook, the C423

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Are you waiting for a successor to the Chromebook Flip C302? Too bad, because Asus is giving us another low-end Chromebook instead. Following the entry-level C223NA that launched last month (our review is coming soon), Asus has quietly listed another inexpensive Chromebook on its site - the C423.

There appear to be two variations of the C423. One has an Intel Celeron N3350 processor with a 14-inch 1366x768 non-touch display, and the other has a Pentium N4200 with a 1080p touchscreen.

Verizon releases Android 8.0 Oreo update for the ASUS Zenfone V Live

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Asus and Verizon have had an on-and-off deal here in the U.S., both for phones and tablets (the latter of which aren't half bad). One of of those devices, the Zenfone V Live, is getting an update to Oreo starting today. Another one of those better-late-than-never situations, I guess.

Big Red was kind enough to include a changelog, so here you go:

Software Version: V15.0405.1808.30

Android® Security Patch Level: 2018-08-01

Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a software upgrade to Android 8.0 for your Zenfone V Live.

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

Asus makes some of the best Chromebooks around, from the tiny C101PA to the more premium C302CA. Last month, the company announced a new 11.6-inch model with entry-level specifications - the C22NA. It's now on sale in the United States, for the low price of $229.99.

If you haven't read our previous coverage, the C22NA is a traditional laptop (not a 2-in-1) with an Intel Celeron N3350 processor and 4GB RAM.

ASUS Zenfone Live L1 review: The best phone you can get for $110, but you shouldn’t buy one (yet)

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

We've been critical when it comes to Android Go-powered phones in the US, but Asus' new Zenfone Live L1 is set to change our mind. It's the first genuinely good experience I've had with the platform, and combined with a Snapdragon 425, 3,000mAh battery, and price-defying 5.5" 720p IPS display, I think it could be the best phone you can buy for $110. At least, it will be once Asus fixes a serious issue it has with randomly locking up, which the company promises with a future update.

Hands-on with the Asus ROG Phone: It’s actually kind of cool

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

It is a well-established fact that "gaming" phones are little more than a marketing gimmick. There's nothing about these devices that make them better for gaming than the next high-end smartphone. Well, the Asus ROG Phone might be the exception that proves the rule. I was skeptical of the ROG Phone when it was announced, just like I am of every other supposed gaming phone. To my surprise, I actually liked using the phone, and I can see how it could credibly be called a "gaming phone."

The product renders Asus released earlier this year didn't make the ROG Phone look very attractive.

Without further ado, here are all the new LineageOS 15.1 devices:

Asus Zenfone 5Z review: As good as it is, buy a OnePlus 6 instead

Friday, August 24th, 2018

When Asus announced the Zenfone 5 lineup at MWC, all eyes were fixed on the the king of the group, the 5Z. Fast forward almost six months and the phone is finally available to purchase at a mere $500 in the U.S. While the high-end Android flagship market is squarely controlled by Samsung, there's a curious middle ground between budget and top-tier devices. This "affordable flagship" space is heavily populated with offerings from OnePlus, Honor, and Xiaomi, but Asus has set its sights on a piece of that pie with the 5Z.
