  • You can now remove your ASUS ZenUI bloatware from your ASUS ZenFone 2 and other devices

    You can now remove your ASUS ZenUI bloatware from your ASUS ZenFone 2 and other devices

    Bloatware are typically apps that come pre-installed or with an official update for your smartphone or device that you do not actually need. Most of the time these bloatware apps are treated as system apps and can't be removed or uninstalled. The best thing you could do previously was to turn off notifications and disable it. For a while now, even the ASUS ZenUI packed on a good deal of bloatware, but with recent updates you can now remove said bloatware completely. To do that go to Apps and tap on the Uninstall Updates button. After tapping OK, a second dialog box will appear asking if you want to uninstall the app. Click OK and that resource draining sucker is gone! Bear in mind that this could be applicable for ASUS devices that have had the latest updates and so far it works on the ASUS ZenFone 2 and ASUS Fonepad 7 which have received their latest updates. You still can't delete everything though as some apps are considered non-removable for certain reasons. In any case, this is a great first step by ASUS and should make it even more popular, especially those who have been itching to remove a bloatware app in particular.

  • ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML review - Mightiest midrange flagship phablet killer of 2015

    ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML review - Mightiest midrange flagship phablet killer of 2015

    When it first came out, the ASUS ZenFone range of smartphones made a huge impact as devices that looked as good as flagship smartphones with nearly as good performance and features yet were priced for the entry-level to midrange. Obviously, the ASUS ZenFone 2 range of smartphones have rather big shoes to fill, but with features like 4GB RAM, 5MP PixelMaster front cameras, 64-bit Intel processors, 4G LTE and improvements across the board, the new ZenFones could very well surpass the achievements of its predecessors. Does it live up to the hype or break expectations? Check out our full review of the 4GB RAM enabled ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML with 32GB storage to find out.

  • ASUS ZenFone Selfie coming to Computex 2015? Has 13MP front camera + dual LED flash?

    ASUS ZenFone Selfie coming to Computex 2015? Has 13MP front camera + dual LED flash?

    ASUS Malaysia recently teased that a new ZenFone smartphone could be coming to Computex 2015 with the hint that it is the front of the phone. Incidentally, it shows a front camera and dual LED flash, which when combined with the spaces in the teaser image, could mean that this will be the ASUS ZenFone Selfie. No tech specs or features yet, but we assume that since the standard front camera is 5MP already, this version will either be 8MP or 13MP. The rear camera will likely be the same 13MP PixelMaster camera while the screen looks to be the same 5.5-inch size. Since most selfie takers tend to be the younger crowd we assume that this display will be in 720p HD and perhaps a full HD 1080p resolution for the richer crowd. Other tech specs will likely be the same 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor and 4GB RAM in the current ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML smartphone. No specific Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet, but we expect it to be soon as even the ASUS Malaysia Facebook page is showing the teaser image above.
