ASUS ZenFone™ V - Power Up in Safe Mode

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

  1. With the device powered off, press and hold the Volume Down button.
  2. While still holding Volume down, press and hold the Power button for about 5 seconds until the boot mode screen appears.
