Yesterday, Asus announced the arrival of the first Android Nougat-based firmware update for the ZenFone 3 Deluxe ZS550KL smartphone/phablet. This 5.5-inch handset arrived last year in August, when it launched with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board.

According to Asus, these are the highlights of the new firmware:

  • Android Marshmallow to Nougat update, including enhanced Doze mode, quick app switching, split-screen mode, customizable Quick Settings, improved notifications, support for more languages, and more
  • Asus Share Link app removed
  • redundant app shortcuts removed from all apps menu, now available in Quick settings or System settings areas (Audio Wizard, Splendid, System update, Flashlight)
  • ZenMotion feature ShakeShake no longer available

In addition to the above, the update no longer supports the PC Suite app, while some live wallpapers that are not compatible with Nougat will be removed after installing the new software.

The update rolls out as we speak and it may take up to a week for all compatible handsets to receive it. To check manually, the user needs to go to Settings>About phone>System update.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
