Asus zenfone max Pro m1 .063 update Extreme battery draining problem.

edited December 2020 in ZenFone Max Pro Series

Hello Asus,

I have been facing extreme battery draining problem since I updated to the latest version .063. This update has ruined my mobile experience. I m getting 1 hour of screen on time and that is perhatic. Mobile is also heating a lot. Average temperature of my mobile remains around 43°C. It feels apps are battling to each other inside the mobile all the time. Even if I don't use my fully charged mobile for 7hours (during sleep), my battery goes to zero.

Charging time has also pethatically increased. It takes forever to charge if I keep my internet on during charging. Buttttt when I turn off the internet connection, mobile gets fully charged in approx 90 minutes only. And if I use my mobile during charging (while keeping data on) , charging percentage decreases instead of increasing.

Everything is fine except this issue. I love this phone, it used to be really great in terms of battery performance. Please fix this problem in next update or I'll have to sell my mobile.

Note: last 2 updates (.061 and .063) ruined the experience. And battery was working superfine in previous versions prior to .061.



  • Please follow below steps may improve battery backup: 

    1. Enable “Power saver” (Settings > Power management)

    2. Close apps that are not used (Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, etc.)

    3. Adjust sleep time and brightness (Settings > Display)

    4. Boost memory when you see memory consumption is high with no app running,

    5. check for background running applications, stop/disable unwanted apps, you can manage apps from auto-start manager. 

    Recalibrate battery

    To recalibrate battery, charge your phone to 100% without interruption.

    then discharge it normally till 0%(phone gets switched off).

    charge it to 100% in switched off condition and keep it in that state for a little more time.

    now switch on your phone in charged condition and unplug when ASUS logo appears.

    keep the phone unused for 5 mins.

    you will get far better battery life as the battery stats.bin file will be updated.

    I'm also facing these issues after the last two updates. When these will be resolved. Kindly make it asap

  • Same problem as mentioned by others is faced by me also. Even in switch off condition also battery is draining fastly. Plz provide a permanent solution for this problem. SOT is decreasing day by day due to this problem. Plz consider all our issuea asap.

    This isn't useful. I have tried this multiple times. But still battery drains without any usage or even in idle state.

  • I also tried everything but nothing happened so I exchanged the phone on flipkart and bought Vivo Z1x 8gb 128gb version. Asus made me hopeless. I m pretty happy with my decision now. And I learnt one thing from Asus, never update your phone unnecessarily if it is already working fine. Sometimes update ruins your phone. I also didn't update my Vivoz1x till now because it is working pretty fine 😉😁.

  • how to boost memory

    and where i will find auto start manager in stock rom

  • is the idle battery drain issue still there?

    even i am facing this issue it so annoying just cant leave my phone idle...

    ASUS engineers are in deep sleep

    same issue, tried the above things but still persisting the battery drainage issue.

  • man asus team sucks, like i cant even keep my phone idle for even 5 mins.

    slowly it is getting worse....

  • Probably it's time to change the phone now.. I changed mine. That update ruined my phone and I had to change it.

  • more than a month since this thread is active

    where is asus team, no reply from their side...

    i guess asus india is shut down...

  • guys, will a custom rom help me with the problem ?

    i dont think these asus engineers are good enough to maintain a software...

  • You can try it, if it works keep it and if it doesn't work, just sell the mobile..

  • Quite true, and it is also certain that I'll never buy Asus phone again in my life.

  • even after the new update problem persists.

    asus developers simply quit this field you guys suck !
