ASUS ZenFone 6 update improves camera quality and camera rotation stability

The ASUS Zenfone 6 is one of the beefy flagship phones of 2019. It offers a 6.4-inch FHD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip, a minimum of 6GB of RAM, a massive 5,000 mAh battery, and a headphone jack. It even comes with a microSD card slot. As you can see, this phone is a pretty solid choice for anyone who’s looking for a multimedia device. What’s even cooler is that ASUS doesn’t complicate unlocking the bootloader on the device. Kernel source code has been out almost since the release of the phone. Whether you like ASUS or not, they deserve credit for this flagship.
