Asus ZenFone Max review


The Taiwanese tech goliath presented Zen Fone Max back in January, which was a sub Rs 10k cell phone and highlights a mammoth 5,000mAh battery unit. The telephone figured out how to get average footing and now Asus has given it a slight update. 

The patched up variant of ZenFone Max was propelled in May 2016 and it accompanies a speedier processor, refreshed portable OS, stockpiling, and so forth. 


Show: 5.5-inch HD 1280x720p presentation, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 

Operating system: Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 

CPU: 1.2 GHz octa-center Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 RAM: 2GB/3GB RAM 

Capacity: 32GB inbuilt memory, expandable by up to 64GB

Measurements: 156 x 77.5 x 10.6 mm 

Weight: 202 grams 

Value: Rs 9,999 (2GB RAM), 12,999 (3GB RAM) 


which gives it a weight of 202 grams a discernible width. Anyway this ought not make any inconvenience to shoppers searching for a gadget, which can last longer than the customary cell phones. To me it’s a satisfactory exchange off as I wouldn’t fret a somewhat heavier cell phone in the event that it gives enough squeeze to endure a whole day of substantial use. 

The cell phone is indistinguishable as far as structure to the first ZenFone Max, which was propelled in January 2016. It pursues the organization’s structure reasoning the mark concentric circles at the front and a metallic strip running at the edges. 

The front of the cell phone is busy with a 5.5-inch 720p showcase with three touch capacitive catches set at the base. A 5MP camera is situated at top alongside earpiece and light sensor. 


The cell phone overhauls on past variation by pressing in rapid octa-center Snapdragon 615 processor when contrasted with the Snapdragon 410 that controlled up the first ZenFone Max. 

In this rendition of ZenFone Max, clients have a choice to match up the processor with either 2GB RAM or 3GB RAM. Both the variations gets 32GB inbuilt memory, which can be extended by up to 64GB through microSD card. 

network goes, ZenFone Max has 4G LTE, 3G, GRPS/EDGE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi. 


The new Zen Fone Max has not enhanced presentation goals in contrast with its antecedent. It is sent with the equivalent 5.5-inch 720p showcase, which is useful for fundamental mixed media errands though the other comparatively valued telephones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K3 Note, Yu Yureka Plus, have an edge over it, on account of their 1080p screens. The HD show of ZenFone Max does not offer a similar sort of sharpness and shading generation that both of these cell phones give. 

Execution: A battery beast 

The Snapdragon 615 SoC left us somewhat befuddled. On occasion it figured out how to offer a better than average generally execution, however then there were cases when the cell phone attempted to execute even essential assignments, for example, stacking up the dialer or the notes application. We had got the 2GB RAM variation for the review and the performing multiple tasks experience was not satisfying. As referenced before there is another variation accessible that offers 3GB of RAM, and is valued at Rs 12,999. 

Other than processor, the new ZenFone Max redesigns on inside capacity. There is 32GB inbuilt memory, which can be extended to 64GB through microSD card. The first ZenFone Max has just 16GB inner capacity. 


The cell phone ships with the equivalent 13MP back and a 5MP front camera. You get the Asus’ Pixel Master innovation and an a lot of fascinating modes to play with, for example, Low light mode, manual mode, smaller than expected photography, super goals, and so forth. A sum of 14 modes are given, which will be sufficient to keep you occupied as you fire up the snapper.
