Zenfone 5Z Issues

Heating Issue in 2020

If your new Zenfone 5Z device is facing the heating issue and you are worried if it’s going to be the next NOTE 7 Explode? Probably not. Heating issues in smartphones are most common issues nowadays. If you have ever used Xiaomi devices then you know what I mean.

How to overcome Heating Issue On Zenfone 5Z

    • Make sure you do not overcharge your phone, in other words, if your phone is fully charged and it is still plugged into your charger, then chances are you may face slight heating at the battery area of your phone.
    • Make sure you use the genuine charger and data cable that is provided by the manufacturer.
  • Do not play games while you are charging your phone, as playing games could normally heat up your device, but charging at the same time will lead to rising temperature.
  • Give your phone a rest, doing high intensive tasks for long hours may lead to the heating issue. Make sure not to watch videos for long on your Zenfone 5Z, I know you cannot resist the infinite display 😛
  • Talking on phone calls for long will eventually lead to rise in temperature, as various phone services are used while an ongoing call. Which is completely normal. However, you may want to end the call as it may lead to rise in your ear and face temperature as well 😛

If you consider these points which I mentioned above, I think you can overcome heating issue on your Zenfone 5Z.

Battery Draining Fast

If your Zenfone 5Z is encountering battery issues and you are thinking that Samsung should have put in a higher capacity battery. Spec sheet says 5Z comes with 3300 Mah non-removable battery, which is quite good considering the competition. Let’s look at the issues which may be causing battery draining really fast than usual.

How to overcome Battery Draining Issue on Zenfone 5Z 

    • First thing first, if you have installed battery saver application from the play store in order to save your battery percentage than I highly recommend you to uninstall the saver as soon as possible. It can make your power even worse, it activates various services and ads that may lead to more power drain. Instead, use the saver that is actually provided by Samsung. You can go to Settings > Battery > Battery Saver, and turn the option ON. That’s it. You are good to go now.
  • Delete Facebook app from your phone, this may sound a little weird but the Facebook app is using your battery more than you are using your phone. Facebook app activates your location services, your notification services which are active all time, that leads to faster battery drain. Instead, use Facebook from the browser. Or remember to log out every time you finish using Facebook app.
  • Stop playing high graphics intensive games when you are out and a power socket is hard to find. Games, when played for long, have proved to drain the battery faster on any phone.
  • Turn Off GPS and Location Services. Use Mobile Data or LTE network only when there is a need. These services also make your battery drain faster.

Follow the above steps and I am sure your Zenfone 5Z’s Battery will last longer than it did before. If the above did not help you in saving your battery then let me know your issue in the comment section below, I will surely help you out. 😀
