The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is one of the best phones that Asus has launched in the Indian market. Going by the sales figures, it is Asus’s most successful smartphone in India. For the first of its kind, someone has managed to out shadow Xioami in its league and has managed to grab some of its limelight. It looks that Asus is back on track and will be giving some tough competitions to smartphone makers like Xiaomi, Honor and OnePlus.
As we are yet to find any smartphone with zero flaws, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is no exception and comes bundled with a couple of issues as well. Among the most notable issues include the inferior camera algorithm and the slow fingerprint sensor. No doubt the Zenfone Max Pro M1 packs in some good camera hardware, the software processing seems like to be the downside here. The 13 or 16 MP (depending on the variant) f/2.2 primary sensor coupled with a 5 MP f/2.4 secondary depth sensor with PDAF seems like decent hardware for the price segment but when compared with the Redmi Note 5 Pro, it pales behind.
In this guide, we will tell you how you can enable Electornic Image Stabilization (EIS) on ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1.
Method 1: Enable EIS On Zenfone Max Pro M1 With Root
The camera interface is very clumsy and the picture quality leaves a lot to be desired. Well, we have mentioned a solution for inferior picture quality on the Zenfone Max Pro M1 in one of our previous articles using the Google Camera mod. You can use the same app to enable EIS from the settings but it requires your phone to be rooted. Click on the link appearing below to check it out.
If you are someone who does not want to void your warranty or someone who finds the entire rooting process clumsy and fears bricking their phone, here is how you can enable EIS on your Zenfone Max Pro M1 without root.
Method 2: Enable EIS On Zenfone Max Pro M1 Without Root
- Open your stock camera application.
- Tap on Settings.
- Tap and Hold on the Redeye Reductions until you get a notification saying that you’re now in additional settings.
- Log in to the video mode.
- Set for any resolution under 4K. Anything in and under 1080p works.
- Toggle on the “Image Stabilization” option in the Settings and you are done.
Congratulations! You just enabled EIS on your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.
Though the effect of EIS is much cleaner when you use the root method, the other method can get your work done if you are not a power user. It seems that Asus wants its users to discover these features which are hidden under the Settings menu.
These are one of the easiest ways to enable Electronic Image Stabilisation on the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1. I hope this article works the way it is intended to be.
