ASUS announced a new Software Upgrade via FOTA for the ASUS Zenfone Max range – the PowerMaster app. This battery life extending upgrade brings with it a dashboard of 9 technologies that enable users to optimally squeeze more power out of their smartphones. With an elaborate range of battery saving modes, the PowerMaster app provides intelligent ways of charging, reducing energy consumption on unnecessary apps, and allows the users to enjoy stronger battery performance.
Commenting on the launch of PowerMaster solution, Peter Chang, Region Head – South Asia & Country Manager for ASUS India said,“A smartphone’s utility is no longer limited to making calls or sending messages. Today, it is an active companion, a go-to device for clicking pictures or shooting videos, and also one’s entertainment respite. Considering its multifarious uses, a strong battery with the potential to help the smartphone carry forth these functions, is non-negotiable. With the PowerMaster app, users can now not only extend the battery’s life, but also benefit from the different technologies provided to increase the smartphone’s overall efficiency.”
The upgrade is equipped with nine brilliant battery-extending technologies to enhance the complete experience. 2X LifeSpan: With the PowerMaster’s 2X Lifespan option turned on, battery’s longevity is extended drastically. The feature charges the phone intelligently to increase the amount of charge cycles the phone battery can normally support, and decreases the loss of capacity from the usual 15% to 7%. It also manages to charge the battery while generating absolutely minimal heat. As a result, the battery ages slower while performing at its best.
Reverse Charge: With its large capacity batteries, Zenfone 3 Max smartphones possess a Reverse Charging feature which allows charging of other USB Devices with an OTG cable. To avail this benefit, users need to plug in the OTG cable to the Zenfone 3 Max, and plug in the USB charging cable to the device that needs to be charged.
Scan: The Scan mode aids in optimization of the smartphone’s battery. It provides a list of suggested optimizations that enable efficient power consumption.
Auto-start Manager: The Auto-start Manager offers customization of the Start-up apps that the users really need. This helps in saving precious power that otherwise would be consumed liberally and wasted on unnecessary apps each time the users start their phones.
