We have some great news for those of you who use the Asus ZenFone 3. The smartphone, which was announced back in May 2016, shipped with Android Marshmallow on board. Now, Asus is rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the device.

The update is currently being sent out to users in the Philippines, but we expect that it will soon be available to users in other parts of the world as well. The update brings quite a few new features to the device including the popular multi-window support and an improved version of the Doze power management mode.

The update is currently being rolled out to both the 5.2-inch (ZE520KL) as well as the 5.5-inch (ZE552KL) version of the device. Aside from the difference in screen size, both smartphones come with the Snapdragon 625 chipset, a fingerprint scanner, a 16 MP primary camera with an f/2.0 aperture, and an 8 MP selfie snapper. The Asus ZenFone 3 is also quite easy on the eyes and features a glass back as well as a metal frame, which makes the device feel sturdy in the hand.

      nowadays the key isn’t about speed but security. Every site on the internet says Samsung is working hard on security and others improvements. I’ve a Galaxy S7 and I’m not bother for being maybe the last to receive nougat. unless I know it will be complete and out of bugs. TouchWiz is no more that slow biatx*

      • It’s

        still not perfect. My S7E has frozen 4-5 times in the last 6 months of usage.

      Samsungs already feature Nougat features anyway, so most won’t care…

      ALso at least it doesn’t come with the 33 Asus bloatware!

      • Samsung

        has it’s fair share of bloat. And I as a Samsung user, care.
