Lines or screen flicker when taking photos of the Zenfone screen with a camera or mobile phone


Lines or screen flicker may occur when taking photos of the Zenfone's OLED (Organic Light Emitting Display) display with a camera or mobile phone.

This phenomenon results from the OLED display which uses PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) to dim the brightness.

The PWM happens at a very high rate so it can't be perceived by the human eyes.

Only when the camera shutter speed is within a certain range can you see lines or screen flicker occur

To minimize the appearance of these on your photos, try the following tips:

 (a) Set the Zenfone screen brightness to maximum level.

 (b) Adjust the camera shutter speed and ISO.

 (c) Change camera flicker settings

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).
