Navigation Pill icon bug fixed in Max Pro M1 May 2019 Update

If you read our Zenfone Max Pro M1 Android Pie Update Review, you may have noticed that one of the criticisms was regarding the Navigation Pill icon. This option is not enabled by default, but if you toggled gestures on, you may encounter the bug. Basically, a circle from the regular nav bar appears behind the pill icon which makes it look really weird.

The company never acknowledged the bug, but it has been quietly fixed in the Max Pro M1 May 2019 Update.
