1. Lower screen brightness
An overly bright screen consumes more power and can be harmful to the eye. To adjust brightness, swipe down from the notification bar twice and use the slider. Extend your battery life, and protect your eyes while doing so!
2. Shorten screen timeout time.
To squeeze more juice out of your battery, you can shorten the screen timeout time so that your phone goes into sleep mode faster. Try changing the time from the default 1 minute to 15 seconds.
To change this setting, tap Settings > Display > Sleep.
To change Cover View screen timeout time, go to Settings > ASUS Cover > Automatic sleep.
3. Trim unnecessary background apps.
Prevent unnecessary apps you don't need from running in the background and consuming your battery by using Auto-start Manager. Tap Auto-start Manager to select apps you want to discontinue from running.
4. Use Smart-saving Mode .
ZenFone 2 has many extremely useful battery modes, one of which is Smart-saving mode. It provides extra toggles for brightness, a feature that turns off internet, and an Extend Standby feature that lowers battery consumption by efficiently managing your push notifications when your phone is in sleep mode.
Tap Settings > Power management > Power Saver > Battery Modes > Smart-saving mode.
5. Tap Boost from Quick Settings.
Have you ever wished for a single button that solves all your problems? When you tap Boost, not only does it make your phone faster, but it also lowers battery consumption. Swipe down from the notification bar twice to find the Boost button.
6. Choose Wi-Fi over 3G/4G Data.
Using Wi-Fi instead of a data connection will use less battery because your phone doesn't need to constantly search for the network.
To turn on Wi-Fi, swipe down from the notification bar twice and tap the Wi-Fi icon.
7. Turn off Location Services, Bluetooth, and NFC.
Don't be lazy! Turning off these services when you're not using them can extend your battery life. To turn these services off, swipe down from the notification bar twice and tap the Location, Bluetooth, or NFC icon.
8. Set up an Auto-switch mode schedule.
You can't be using your phone all the time! Set up a time interval in Auto-switch mode to automatically switch to a lower battery consumption power mode when you're not using it. To do this, tap Settings > Power management > Power Saver > Auto-switch mode. After enabling this feature and choosing your starting and ending times, we recommend setting it to change to Ultra-saving mode (the default).
Last but not least, don't forget to pick up a ZenPower
Btery very fast drain. 50% take 1 hour to untl die. 2 day i use. This phone overall ok, but btery! I'm disappointed
My phone is ZX551ML 128GB (Z00XS) WW firmware.This phone is come with (Radio) not as description.Latest firmware for WW is v22.214.171.124(Marshmallow6.0.1),i suggest dont update because wifi no stable,unable work fine with many modem.You can use WW_V126.96.36.199(Marshmallow6.0.1) better than latest,the only problem is battery drain fast and cant move app to sd.Android lolipop is my best choice.

AnonD-665987, 01 May 2017Most of my friends complain 4G connectivity of this phone is not working in the PH, is it the ... morethere are 40_ LTE bands, you need to check what local LTE bands are used and then the specs to see if one of those bands match. For me only the low speeds LTE band matched. The higher speed LTE bands were absent. The speed difference is quite noticeable when downloading only. Also I had to use an app to make LTE voice calls, Asus has not released an update so cellular/wifi voice calling it is built in which most 2017 phones have.
the price is deadly cheap right now, i'll take one if i have a chance. it is about 139.79 usd for 64gb in my country
Anonymous , 04 Aug 2016Only thing this phone lack is the battery life and apps compatibility. Really, this Intel At... moreApps compatibility? Not sure what you mean, I've had mine for a week now and all the apps I had on my previous phone work fine on this one. I agree battery life could be better but the same could be said of most phones from 2015, the thing that helps mitigate this is the fast charging, I can go from 10% to 90% in 15 minutes. As far as heat goes, I used to own an LG G4 and that got waaaay hotter than this phone ever has. Overall this is a very good phone for its price and age, it still stands up well against phones from 2016 & 2017 and is a great daily driver.

Is this a dust reaiatant or a water reaistant phone? Planning to buy one..
Most of my friends complain 4G connectivity of this phone is not working in the PH, is it the bandwidth? Or availability of 4G in certain areas? Idk 4G has become a norm now and has been cascaded throughout the country, I want this phone but ofc there's that.
