ASUS ZenFone Mobile has few unique features that you may be unaware of somebody. The unique features are Glove mode, Recording voice calls, one hand operation and changing the App Drawer’s grid size.
In India, especially in South India, many women wear long gloves to cover their hands and arms to prevent getting too tanned since their main transportation mode is by Scotty. In other countries particularly in North America, they typically only wear gloves in weather season. The crappy thing about that it’s work hard to swipe on the screen with the covered their finger because many digitizers couldn’t identify the press of finger covered by a glove and the electrical signals won’t be processed by the software.
Go to Settings > ASUS Customized Settings and Enable Glove Mode.
However, with the ZenFone, you can enable “Glove Mode” which will increase the sensation of the screen so you can perform it as if you didn’t have gloves on.
Recording Voice Calls
When you’re calling your ISP/TV service provider and you want to record the conversation JUST IN CASE they give you a hard time, or you just want to catch your inebriated friends saying something hilarious, turning on the “Record Voice Call” is really easy. During the call, the dialer will have a set of icons. Tap on the Record icon (2nd row, 3rd icon) as the call is being made. The recorded call will be saved in the /sdcard/callrecordings/ folder in the File Manager. It can also be played in the Sound Recorder app.
One Hand Operation
The ZenFone has a really crisp 5.5” screen, but my friend and myself, we can’t go across the entire screen. It is actually the both handed to use this device for us. In that situation, you can use the One Hand Operation mode to make things a bit easier.
Go to Settings -> ZenMotion
Tap on One Hand Mode
Tap on Quick Trigger to activate the mode when you double-tap on the Home button
Quickly double-tap on the Home button and the screen will shrink to assist you. You can also change the size of the screen by holding down the corner and dragging out or in. In addition, if you prefer to have the screen on the right side or left, you can press and hold the white bar on the top of the screen and then drag across to the desired side. To go back to full-screen mode, just double-tap on the Home button again.
Changing the App Drawer’s grid size.
Thanks to patman920 – This was a simple trick I learned in the r/zenfone subreddit the other day. Alternatively, of going through App Drawer menu to change the size of the grid. Pinching in will increase the grid size, Pinching out will decrease it.
