How to Maximum brightness? Durable battery? AOD Issue

Star I


i got my first Zenfone (10) yesterday and i am enjoying it!

I have 2 questions and 1 issue.

Q1: The display is unfortunately a bit dark. How can i achieve maximum brightness? I read somewhere that the display will get brighter when auto brightness is turned ON instead of manually adjusting to maximum brightness. Is this correct?

Q2: I am not a  poweruser and i am curious what the "durable battery" mode really does in the background. Does it only turn the refresh rate to 60hz and turn off 5G or does it ACTUALLY reduce/throttle the processor?  I don't need maximum processor power, i would gladly reduce power to maximise battery life (Although battery life is already very good so far!)

Issue: The Always-On Display is often way too dark. I think this is bad programming, i just wanted to note that .

I have a list of improvements i would like to see on the Zenfone because it is a very good device, only a few things missing to make it truly great. I will post another thread for R&D if ASUS is interested.


All in all i am enjoying my Zenfone! Thanks ASUS !

cheers! 🙂

Unfortunately the display brightness on this phone is no the best, even if you put it on Auto Brightness you will experience dark display at outdoor on sunny days.
