  • 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.

  • Same problem for me battery is draining even in switched off condition. 30 to 40% is draining without using. Please give us solutions or give us a new update by solving this

  • Hey, Asus Family ther's a good news for you guys, I think I've found the solution for your queries!

    Now, Jot down what I say on a paper & follow them as I did(Read until the end):

    Part 1 ( You can skip this if you're a geek)

    -Turn off unwanted services like location, bluetooth, network(Wi-fi,Mobile Data) until you really need them. Keep an eye on these services.

    -Turn off notifications and restrict background data usage from app settings of unwanted and not so important apps for you like games, FB, Insta etc...You really don't need them I guess.

    -Turn off auto-brightness and set brightness according to your surroundings manually. Lower brightness will give you even more battery.

    -Set low display sleep time like upto 1 minute or 2 minute if you really need it!

    -Turn off haptic feedback, touch to vibrate/tones on keyboard and others. Turn off lock and unlock sounds. Turn off touch sounds. I think you really don't need them. Turn off all unwanted sounds from sound settings.

    -Keep your homescreens as simple as possible and fill em'up only with your most frquent apps and widgets...don't try to get all the widgets up and running for you always on the homescreen.

    Part 2 ( Mandatory for every user, even non-Asus, Sorry only for Asus, this is Zentalk right!🤣)

    Here are even more important things to save battery:

    -Turn off 'Hey Google' or 'Ok Google' from 'VoiceMatch' settings because you don't need the mic always running for you.

    -Don't use a battery saver until you really need them(You'll only need it if battery is low). Battery saver reduces clock speed and I know many people use battery saver to do cpu and gpu heavy tasks with Battery Saver On, This increases strain on cpu and gpu and they run for a longer time for the same process without battery saver...This will drain your battery drastically. You can use battery saver only when your battery is low like 25-30% or can always use it if you don't perform heavy tasks on battery saver mode, it mostly only used for calls, texting messages, slight surfing and other basic but important things because you probably don't have your charger around all the time!

    -Try to switch off unwanted gestures like all ' Zenmotion' gestures from 'System' in Settings and 'Smart Screen On' in Display settings etc... Until you really really need them!

    - After every Software/FOTA update from Asus 'wipe out the cache partition' from bootloader menu( Swith off your phone and Hold down Power+Volume down button until you see the Asus logo ,, now navigate using the Volume buttons and select using the power buttons)

    -Last but not the least, Recalibrate your battery( Surf the web to find out how to Recalibrate

    YOU'LL THANK ME LATER!

    If still you are facing battery issues, then it's time to get a new battery! Or even a new device.
