Asus pretty much won over the mid-ranged smartphone market with its flagship smartphone, the Zenfone 2 last year. While the Taiwanese manufacturer continues its support for Asus Zenfone 2 with Android Marshmallow update, it is also time for the release of the next gen Asus Zenfone 3 this June. Zenfone 2 owners might already know that their device comes with gesture support, thanks to Asus ZenMotion.

ZenMotion is sweet and simple, with two types of gesture recognition features – Touch Gesture and Motion Gesture. The Touch Gesture helps you to wake the screen or turn off the display with just double tap on the screen. The “tap wake” feature dates back to 2013 with the LG G3, but is mostly limited to high-end smartphones and devices.

Enable ZenMotion on Asus Zenfone 2

Open the apps drawer and navigate to the Settings app on your Zenfone 2. Look for the ZenMotion tab within the app and tap on it.

The Touch Gesture feature also allows you to assign a special gesture (W, S, e, C, Z, and V) to any app, which you can directly access the particular app.

For instance, if you assign W to WhatsApp, you can draw “W” on the screen, which will turn on the screen and open WhatsApp.

Motion Gesture is also pretty cool, although it can be troublesome when the phone is in your pocket and constantly moving. By using the “Shake Shake” feature (shaking your ZenFone 2 twice), you can take a screenshot, and also create a new task when using Do It Later.

Besides “Shake Shake”, there is another other unique option within the Motion Gesture feature, called “Hands up”. This motion gesture feature allows you to lift your phone up to automatically pick up calls. While the touch gesture features of ZenMotion are pretty awesome, the motion gestures are not for everyone.
