The most recent flagship model from ASUS is the ZenFone 9. There are a variety of factors that make this phone fascinating, but its compact size is the main one. It is a rare find in the Android market to find a flagship-grade phone that is both engaging and not overly huge. It is a step up from its predecessor and doesn’t take any significant short cuts. Our comprehensive evaluation contains more information on that. Here, we’ll demonstrate how to configure a Smart Key on your brand-new ASUS ZenFone 9.

One of the distinctive characteristics of the phone is the Smart Key. It alludes to the side-mounted multipurpose power/lock key. That key has a touch panel and a fingerprint scanner in addition to being a power/lock key. Additionally, you can give it double-tap and long-press functions. So the ZenFone 9 is quite adaptable, and if you use its Smart Key, you can use it to be much more productive. To give you a complete picture, I’ll go into more detail about it below.

There are two ways to get to the Smart Key once you’re in the ZenFone 9 Settings. You have two options: either manually enter clever key into the search bar at the top, or use it. For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how to do it manually. The Advanced menu can be located in the Settings in that manner.

If the Press twice switch is not already on, the first thing you must do is turn it on. The power key’s double-tap functionality will thereafter be enabled. You can set it to do a variety of tasks, such as launching Google Assistant and turning on voice input, opening a particular app, or performing a quick access action. Personally, I have it set to launch the Camera app on the phone. That provides me an enormously fast way to access the camera at all times, even when the display is off.

You can assign a specific action to pressing and holding the power key by using the Press and hold option. Once more, you have the option of using Google Assistant, voice input, customizing the gadget to your liking, or turning it off. You may set it to whatever you choose, but I use it to turn the gadget off the old-fashioned way.

Advertisement THE SWIPE 0PTION IS DIFFERENT The most intriguing option is Swipe, which gives this button a somewhat different feel. Similar features can be found on the Pixel 4a and Galaxy S10e. This button features a touch panel inside, allowing you to activate it by swiping from top to bottom across it. You have a lot of options to pick from here. It can be used to play/pause media, quickly scroll to the beginning or conclusion of a webpage, reload a page, and scroll through your media content. The final option, which is what I use it for, allows you to reduce the notification shade. Whatever you are now doing on your device, you can reach the notification shade by simply swiping across it. Without a doubt, this greatly reduces the need for hand gymnastics.
