jheckardthanks for your reply.
Although I do not claim to be any type of expert, or an employee of ASUS, I have been an avid Android user for many years. Hopefully someone with ASUS will respond shortly to advise with certainty.
While attempting to research the question of utilizing virtual ram on these phones, I can confirm that there are a variety of phones from companies such as Samsung, Motorola, OnePlus and Ziaomi which have added their own software options to choose this feature. However, I am not currently finding any true option to do the same with the ASUS ZenFone 9. Perhaps by installing an aftermarket program, which may or may not involve rooting the phone, it might be possible. Please note though that there are probably just as many articles advising against the process as there are for it. The biggest issue seems to be that Virtual Ram for an Android device feature was truly designed to be accessed by installation of high-speed SD cards or possibly using the internal storage when an SD card is unavailable. Either choice would almost always be slower than the physical ram / memory installed in the phones, such as with this model being LPDDR5. In fact, I am also seeing several newly written articles describing how to disable or even uninstall these tools after finding that they may cause the entire system to run slower or affect battery life.
Best recommendations for these phones appear to be disabling unused applications, which would regularly run in the background even when not being accessed. Turning off animations. Or perhaps try using the built in Memory Cleaner tool, which I have not personally even tried out.
I would like to wish you the best of luck with your search, regardless of findings or end result.
