Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1's missing features and their alternates apps
We have to say that Asus has radically overhauled its smartphone approach in 2018. This year, the technology giant seems willing to let go of some traditions and to give consumers precisely what they are convinced of and asking for.
The recently launched Zenfone Max Pro M1 (Review) is the testimony to this new Asus philosophy and also the first phone from the brand to run almost stock Android ROM. The software is still Zen UI but it retains the stock look and feel, and has been stripped down to the basics. Asus has, however, still added some extras that people often ask for.
Here are a few things you can do on Zenfone Max Pro M1:
1. Portrait Mode
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 Portrait mode in the camera app is a bit confusing. Actually, the portrait mode option in the sidebar menu is not the background blur or bokeh mode.
You will find the portrait mode icon in the top strip next to the settings wheel as shown in the image above. Just tap it and the depth-sensing second camera will get in action. It must be noted that actual portrait shots on the phone turn out better than what you see on the viewfinder screen before pressing the shutter key.
2. Change Font size
Some of the accessibility options like changing Font Size are also present in display settings. So, if you prefer bigger fonts that are lighter on your eyes, you can go to Settings then Display then Advanced then Font Size and increase or decrease them using a slider.
3. Show battery percentage in the Status bar
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a 5000mAh power unit, big enough to drive all battery anxieties. However, it’s still convenient to check exactly how much you have remaining in the tank.
To turn on battery percentage on Zenfone Max Pro M1, just go to Settings then battery, and toggle on Battery percentage listed under power management. You can also check other battery-related stats in the same menu
4. Use Two 4G VoLTE SIM cards
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the only phone available under Rs. 15,000 that supports two VoLTE SIM cards simultaneously. So, you have the option to use Jio SIM for calling and another SIM for data without turning the Jio SIM off.
To manage two VoLTE SIM cards, go to Settings then Network & Internet. Now, you can navigate to “Mobile Network” option and select preferred network as 2G/3G/4G for both SIM 1 and SIM 2.
You can also go to “SIM card” option to set def which SIM will be automatically used for data, calling or texts.
5. Access Zenmotion Gestures (double tap to wake, sleep, etc.)
To access these gestures, go to Settings and scroll down to ‘System’ settings. You will find gestures within system settings.
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 FOTA Update Brings Improvements to Selfie Camera, Fingerprint Sensor
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, the company's popular mid-range smartphone, has received a new FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update that brings improvements to the smartphone's front camera and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor in terms of performance. The update will be rolled out on a batch-by-batch basis. The update is available for all ZenFone Max Pro M1 units, and can be checked by going into Settings then System then System update. Just last month, the smartphone had received a software update that brought the August Android security patch.
The changelog is not extensive and describes only improvements and optimisations for the selfie camera and fingerprint sensor. Build number and file size of the update have also not been mentioned in the release notes. To briefly recall, the smartphone recently got a 6GB RAM variant that also comes with a 16-megapixel selfie camera and a 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel rear camera combination.
