ASUS ZENFONE MAX

PHONE August 22, 2016

ASUS ZENFONE MAX

The Asus Zenfone Max (2016) is introduced with an upgrade over the original smartphone in terms of performance and features the commendable battery life, but except that, it is still dragging all its shortcomings from the first variant. Earlier this year, Asus announced its big battery smartphone, the Asus Zenfone Max. Despite its shortcomings in performance, the phone fared well in the 10k segment. However, with the recent launches in the segment, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410-powered Zenfone Max soon became unable to compete in the market. Recently, Asus launched an upgraded variant of the smartphone, which now comes with a more powerful SoC and more storage, while keeping the same, 5000mAh battery pack. Gaming performance has improved, and the Zenfone Max now offers better graphics and smoother mobile gaming performance with the Adreno 405 GPU, than the previous variant that was powered by Adreno 306. The battery life of this phone is still unbeatable. With normal usage including a couple of calls, social media surfing, listening to music, streaming YouTube for 20 minutes and watching a half-hour episode of our favorite TV show, the phone easily managed a day and a half without needing to be charged. So it is a good buy for those who want more battery backup while they doing chat, gaming or other mobile activity.
Pros
• Rugged, and good looking design
• The curved back fits well into the palm and due to the coarse plastic finish, it really feels good to hold

• Gorilla glass protection on the display
• Smooth, effortless performance, including with resource intensive games
• Excellent, super long lasting battery, that can deliver up to a 2-3 day backup!
• Also includes a Power saver mode, which adjusts processor performance, screen brightness and restricts access to features that use up more battery
• Unique reverse charging support – can be used to charge other devices
• Decent loudspeaker, and audio quality
Cons
• Feels bulky, and tips the scales at over 200g
• Visibility under bright light is average due to the reflective nature of the screen
• The Zen UI is a bit cluttered and sometimes buggy (although highly customizable)
• Average camera
• Charging speed is on the slow side
