[Feature Request] PowerMaster & related features

edited August 2019 in ZenFone 6
Hello, 
Just a few days ago I've received my Zenfone 6 and so far it's a great experience, both hardware- and softwarewise. However, I've noticed a few things:
1. Quick Charge makes battery quite hot. I'm no expert, but 45 deg C on idle is quite high. (ambient temperature ~27 deg C)
2. PowerMaster - That "intelligent boost" mode crashes Antutu Benchmark for me. Testing without it works fine besides annoying popup about that boost being turned off. Please add a setting to disable that notification and/or take a look at these crashes.
3. PowerMaster - Battery charge scheduler is a nice feature but it lacks 2 things - limit maximum charge level (to let's say 95% or so regardless scheduling option) and force disable Quick Charging (i.e. for hot environments or to help preserve the battery).

I know these are not real problems but unlike some suggestions (i.e. to enable incredibly bugged Multi user feature) these actually make sense and should be relatively easy to implement considering what PowerMaster is doing.
Other than that, Asus team, you are doing a great job!

    For the night charge, use you a slow charger (1A) to preserve the battery life, and the smartphone stays cool.

    Ok, I get it but why would I need 2nd charger when my previous Galaxy S6 had this feature out of box and PowerMaster is already controlling charging current?

    1. This is normal during quick charge
    2. This works on my phone so I can't say why it crashes on yours. The list of apps that makes this pop up appear is quite short so I can't say it's a big problem and it's not like you will run Antutu and similar apps on a daily basis.
    3. I can send this feedback to our software developers and see if they can implement some or maybe all of your suggestions. Thanks!
