How to Optimize ZenFone memory and performance

When you use your device, you may notice that some apps are running in the background. Under such situation, your device may encounter system lags with memory occupied, quick drain and consumption of battery power,or privacy exposure. Now no need to worry,we offer you Auto-start Manager, an ASUS-exclusive managing app that helps you manage your apps while giving the system its full potential with: performance optimization, battery power saving, more memory released, and privacy protection.

When you launch Auto-start Manager from the All Apps screen, you can see a list of apps currently used or running in the background. Tap DOWNLOADED or PRELOADED to display the list of downloaded and preloaded apps. To stop the app from consuming memory, simply slide Allow to the left to set the app to Deny. In addition, you can see how much memory you release from status bar at the bottom.


When you set an app to Deny, that app is denied of memory usage and stop its ability to run in the background. Setting an app to Deny will release the memory used by that app, allowing your device to respond quickly to commands. Saving more memory helps your device to minimize system lags and reduces power consumption.You can also view its memory use percentage with Auto-start Manager by tapping the information icon at right top corner.

How to Protect your Zenfone from lost or getting stolen



How to Protect your Zenfone from lost or getting stolen

If you somehow lose your Zenfone, or it’s stolen, you can now track the device down as long as the software is set up properly (Data and Location On). It can help you find it if you’ve left it round a mate's house or it can really help out the police when you report a theft.

Android Device Manager uses your GPS technology to locate the device and also offers the ability to change your passwords or even wipe the entire phone. None of these features are enabled unless you set it up properly so follow these simple steps below by Asus Zenfone Blog to be sure you’re protected.

Steps How to Protect your Zenfone from lost or getting stolen :

  1. Make sure you have Google Account
  2. Open "Google Settings" > "Security" and activate "Remote locate this device" and "Allow remote lock and erase" and press "Activate"


  3. Open www.google.com/android/devicemanager from your PC or Laptop, now you can see your Zenfone is available. Where you'll now see two more options light up under the status of that device. Next to "Ring" you'll now have the new option to "Lock" as well as the old option of "Erase." Clicking on Lock will bring up a dialogue box that lets you enable a PIN or password on your phone, even if you have no security on the phone before that point.

  4. If you have lost or suspect your phone was stolen, the quickest and best thing to do is immediately lock it with a strong password from the web interface (www.google.com/android/devicemanager). Once you've assessed the situation and have found that the phone has indeed been stolen, then you may want to consider a remote wipe. Remotely wiping the device happens just as quickly as the screen lock, and erases not only the phone but also any external SDcard storage it may have. Whenever a wipe occurs you will also receive an email notification indicating where and when the device was wiped.

8 ways to extend the ZenFone 2 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 2 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).
