Zenfone 3 Zoom receives ZenUI 4.0 Update




It seems like Asus is planning on updating their Zenfone 3 line with ZenUI 4.0 beginning with the Zenfone 3 Zoom. Asus recently announced the update via their ZenTalk forum.

Zenfone 3 Zoom users can now update their devices to ZenUI 4 via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). If you’ve not yet received the update, worry not as Asus says it might take over a week for them to complete the autopush. Alternatively, you can do a manual system update by going to Settings > About > System Update.


Why is this important?

Asus’ ZenUI has received quite the criticism from its users due to having a huge amount of pre-installed apps and a cluttery feel. Critics and users have voiced out these concerns, thankfully Asus listened. Asus’ newest smartphone line, the Zenfone 4 series, came with the newly revamped ZenUI 4.0 which Asus is promising to be lighter and more streamlined. And truth be told it did, the new UI now comes with a lot less bloatware and a cleaner look. And apart from the general clean up it also comes with a few nifty upgrades

  • A new AI-powered Gallery
  • Rotating lock screen wallpapers
  • Asus Safeguard
  • Game Genie
  • Twin Apps
  • Page Maker

Hopefully, Asus rolls out this update to their older models as this seems to be a very promising upgrade over their previous ZenUI’s.
