ZenFone Tips: "Insufficient storage available" When Installing Apps


If you're seeing an "Insufficient storage available" message on your Android, chances are that you've used up most of your device's available memory. To rectify this, you'll need to make some space by deleting apps and/or media; you can also add external storage, such as a Micro SD card, to your phone. In some cases, however, this error shows up even when you have plenty of space. If this is the case, you can restart your phone, reset your apps' caches, or reset the Google Play Store to resolve this issue. Or if you're using ZenFone you may try this troubleshooting:

Follow methods below for troubleshooting:
  1. Uninstall apps that are not often used: Settings>Apps> (Select an app you want to remove) Uninstall.
  2. Move apps that are stored in internal storage to SD card: Settings>Apps>Tap MOVEABLE >Select an app > Move to SD card.
  3. Change default location of app installation to SD card: Settings >ASUS customized settings> App installation settings> Prefer External Storage.
  4. Delete data that are not in use.

8 Tips to Boost your ZenFone Series Battery Life




1. Lower screen brightness


An overly bright screen consumes more power and can be harmful to the eye. To adjust brightness, swipe down from the notification bar twice and use the slider. Extend your battery life, and protect your eyes while doing so! 


2. Shorten screen timeout time.


To squeeze more juice out of your battery, you can shorten the screen timeout time so that your phone goes into sleep mode faster. Try changing the time from the default 1 minute to 15 seconds. 

To change this setting, tap Settings > Display > Sleep
To change Cover View screen timeout time, go to Settings > ASUS Cover > Automatic sleep. 


3. Trim unnecessary background apps.


Prevent unnecessary apps you don't need from running in the background and consuming your battery by using Auto-start Manager. Tap Auto-start Manager to select apps you want to discontinue from running. 


4. Use Smart-saving Mode .


ZenFone has many extremely useful battery modes, one of which is Smart-saving mode. It provides extra toggles for brightness, a feature that turns off internet, and an Extend Standby feature that lowers battery consumption by efficiently managing your push notifications when your phone is in sleep mode.

Tap Settings > Power management > Power Saver > Battery Modes > Smart-saving mode. 


5. Tap Boost from Quick Settings.



Have you ever wished for a single button that solves all your problems? When you tap Boost, not only does it make your phone faster, but it also lowers battery consumption. Swipe down from the notification bar twice to find the Boost button. 


6. Choose Wi-Fi over 3G/4G Data.



Using Wi-Fi instead of a data connection will use less battery because your phone doesn't need to constantly search for the network.

To turn on Wi-Fi, swipe down from the notification bar twice and tap the Wi-Fi icon. 


7. Turn off Location Services, Bluetooth, and NFC.


Don't be lazy! Turning off these services when you're not using them can extend your battery life. To turn these services off, swipe down from the notification bar twice and tap the Location, Bluetooth, or NFC icon. 


8. Set up an Auto-switch mode schedule.


You can't be using your phone all the time! Set up a time interval in Auto-switch mode to automatically switch to a lower battery consumption power mode when you're not using it. To do this, tap Settings > Power management > Power Saver > Auto-switch mode. After enabling this feature and choosing your starting and ending times, we recommend setting it to change to Ultra-saving mode (the default).

Tips How to Fix ZenFone Battery Drain


If your device is a ZenFone A400CG/A400CXG/A450CG or ZenFone 2/5/6 with an updated Android Lollipop and you think that the battery drains fast, try the following tips. You can also use them to fix heating and slow performance issues.

1. Use Auto-Start Manager to put all downloaded apps and pre-loaded apps in DENY mode. 
  • Many apps have their own services and may automatically run in background even though the primary apps have been killed. It’ll consume your battery power fast if it performs improperly.
  • Basically, all downloaded apps and many ASUS pre-loaded apps are allowed to be put in DENY mode. This way, all their services are prevented from running in the background.
  • If the apps listed on the denied list were manually launched (or called by another app, e.g. FB will call its Messenger), they may still occupy memory. Just Allow/Deny them again to free those occupied memory or click Boost from upper right cornerQuick setting to free the occupied memory directly again. From the upper right menu, Sort by memory usage helps seeing this case easily.

2. Uninstall or Disable the downloaded or pre-loaded apps you don’t want.
  • Keeping the unused apps you’ve downloaded on your phone only consumes system resource and may cause malfunction of phone features. Review and uninstall them periodically.
  • Some Google GMS apps are compulsory to be pre-loaded but they can be disabled if you’re not using them. To disable, drag its icon from the App Drawer and drop on upper left/center one by one can easily disable them.
  • ASUS ZenUI also pre-loaded some apps including the apps created by ASUS and other 3rd party manufacturers. They all have been seriously surveyed and identified to give users the best experience on ASUS phones or tablets. However, we also give you the option to remove them by uninstalling or disabling them. Some ZenUI apps, like Phone and Camera, can’t be disabled or uninstalled because of their close relationships with the ZenUI framework.


3. Stop some syncing activities which are not important or necessary for your life. This is useful if your network (Wi-Fi/3G) is not always stable with strong signal. You can review the activities for the accounts listed on Settings > Accounts one by one.
  • Google has many syncing activities enabled by default and you can stop the items you don’t need to get a longer battery life. You can even stop all of them if you are using mobile data plan and often get speed lags.
  • Email sync is another case that can consume more resources. You can stop or use a longer syncing time to save some power.
  • Automatic files/photos uploading to cloud storage can be a power-consuming activity. Consider switching to manual upload instead.
4. Setting up a schedule to automatically enter ‘Ultra- saving mode’ is recommended when you plan to leave your device turned on overnight as you sleep. In this mode, only phone calls will be available, and other communication tools like Line, Facebook, WeChat will be disconnected.


5. Don’t just tap the Back or Home keys when you want to close an app, but rather remember to clear all running apps you’ve launched. Asus ZenUI Launcher provides you an easy way to instantly clear all running apps using just one button.

6. Turn off Auto-update apps on Google Play to save more battery life especially for heavy app usage. Turn off this option from Google Play > Settings > General > Auto-update apps.
