A large battery life is one of the first few things that one looks for when buying a new smartphone. Realizing that, many smartphone manufacturers have been fuelling their products with hefty batteries, with 3,000mAh-4,000mAh capacity almost becoming a standard now. Asus, however, has found a different approach to the demand. Also Read - Asus ROG Zephyrus, TUF series laptops refreshed for 2021: Price, specifications and more

Asus has launched the PowerMaster app for Zenfone 3 Max users, which is aimed to help them extend their battery life. Although Asus Zenfone 3 Max itself has a huge 4,100mAh battery, this app aims at enhancing that too. This app comes as part of a new Software upgrade, and will also be available for the older Zenfone Max range.

The PowerMaster app offers nine battery enhancing technologies, all of which cater to different user lifestyles. Essentially, with a range of battery saving modes, the app provides intelligent ways of charging, reducing energy consumption on unnecessary apps, and allows a better battery performance.

The five different battery modes allow intelligent battery saving capabilities, and two Smart Switches that are tailor-made to deliver benefits suitable to the user. The five Battery modes are Performance mode, Normal mode, Power Saving mode, Super Saving mode and Customized mode. And the two Smart Switches comprise of Switch by Battery level and Switch by Schedule. All these modes allow intelligent battery saving.

Asus claims that its app will extend a battery s longevity by charging the device intelligently to increase the amount of charge cycles the phone battery can normally support, and decreases the loss of capacity from the usual 15 percent to 7 percent. As a result, the battery ages slower while performing at its best.

Additionally, with this update, the Zenfone 3 Max users will be able to customize their device further. With a feature called Autostart Manager, Asus allows its users to select the start-up apps they really need, this way their battery doesn t get unnecessarily consumed on apps they don t even need.

Also, with the update, the Zenfone 3 Max smartphones now also feature a Boost mode, which boosts battery backup by clearing all the background apps after an extended session. It keeps the memory clear and helps processor to cut down on processing unnecessary apps that may stay active in the background. This works somewhat in line with the autostart manager.

The Asus Zenfone 3 Max smartphones also feature something called Reverse Charge, which basically doubles the smartphone as a power bank. It allows charging of other USB Devices with an OTG cable. All a user need to do is 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.
