    ON an ASUS zenphone, where most notifications are disabled, two items keep recurring.
    "Update Google Play" and the truly exciting "External storage insertet"

    Is there a way to disable these two?

    Thanks

    Sounds like they come from the Android system itself.
    Do you mean notifications appearing at the pull down notification area?
    When you long press and hold on the notifications can you get settings?
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Thank you. No, not on these two.
    I assume what triggers them, especially the google one is that I do not use anything google additionally, I do not even have a google account.

    Yes the pull down area, and NO, nothing happens with long press. In the regular settings there is a list to deny notifications, And Google Play Store is disabled, but it still keeps appearing. At least it is not a real problem, just a nuisance...

    There also should be extended and there a menu at top right corner (indicated by a column of 3 points)---> show system apps. Depends on Android version.
    Maybe check there the notification settings of android-system / Google Play Store etc...
    Some of those can be disabled on the lock screen only. Not on the pull down notification area of the unlocked screen, though.

    Yes, that is why I am asking "REALLY disabling notifications" .
    Google Play Store is disabled in the settings....

    Also, is there really no way to stop a notification telling me that there is an SDcard inserted. Which is not really a surprise, as I am the one that put it there, but, why am I being told that same information via a notification every day again and again?

    well, if you bothered by the notification, it is because the launcher? maybe the one you are using do not have the feature to suppress the notification? maybe some apps would help?
    I am using Samsung Game Launcher only to suppress notification when I'm playing games.

    I do not play games, thank you, and a game launcher does strike me as something that might end up sending even more notifications.
    I rooted the phone, but cannot anything else to delete that might cause this.

    Well it teaches me that I was totally right not to have a smartphone...
