Image quality (camera) is quite good, although the image quality for indoor/low light shoots is noticeably grainy but resulting image is still quite decent. Screen gets washed out in harsh/bright sunlight. Zero lags on video playback. Quite decent for gaming but it will considerably drain the battery. Audio playback quality is quite nice as well.
camera is really good, just bad with yeloow light indoors because it makes the faces yellow. battery after one year of hard use it's dropping dawn, but it's normal.
I took the phone as mine from my mom... While she was using it, it had a good battery back up.. But now its worse..... Its the only problem I find all other is perfect
Mine doesn't have gorilla glass screen. Didn't buy tampered glass screen protector trusting that screen is indeed durable like my previous zenfone 2 laser. I dropped it accidentally while walking and it cracked immediately. To even think that it has a shockproof case is beyond ridiculous. And also ny screen flickers badly. Don't know if it's the system or the broken screen though. Great phone before the screen broke 😟
please fix the signal connection when i call someone i can hear him/her clearly but they cannot hear me clearly
rafael19, 13 Jan 2018i have been using this unit for almost 6month though I encountered some minor software problem... moreHi. I'm a zenfone 3 max 5.5 user also. How did you upgrade your phone to nougat 7.1.1? Mine's still 6.0.1. I can't update it. I had this phone for 6days already. I have already updated the software twice but it's still 6.0.1.
This is one of the baddest phones that I ever had! Like every manufacturer this phone comes with customer version of Android, called ZenCare, ZenFone or whatever, that has nothing to do with Zen and its philosophy. It`s lagging - lagging big time. The display rarely recognized finger touching and it is pain in the ___ typing messages. The most disappointing thing about this "phone" is that updates are mandatory! Whatever you are doing - you are obliged to update and that`s it! Like a copy of iPhone (meaning here design) I did expect more.
My Max 3 has 3GB of RAM not 4. Probably, model depends on which country (Philippines) it was released. I'm using Max 3 for 10 months now and I would say that it is good phone. I am really impressed on its battery capacity. I categorized myself as a heavy phone user, constantly checking my phone and browsing multiple social media sites. Also, plays a couple of games (Mobile Legends & Rules of Survival). The battery is 4100 mAh so I only need to charge my phone once a day and it takes me a couple of hours and a half. I recommend Max 3 if you are in a budget. I got mine for Php 9,995 (around $200). Don't expect too much on this phone though. You get what you pay for.
Jag, 11 Feb 2018Im thinking of buying asus zenfone max5.5 but im afraid it would happen d same issue. . .Use camera glass cover because the camera glass easy to scratch...close with cover the fingerprint sensor because when you hand wetting touch the sensor its may affect..fingerprint sensor not function it will effect your screen function also...if your phone warranty 2 years..its no problem
be honestly..its my best phone 4100mph battery its very worth for android os..i dropped many times just issues with screen guard only nothing with display.very cheap and best mobile ever...with every functions..my best recommend to buy this

Star, 28 Nov 2017My phone is flickering Idk why T.T ... Its flickers like suddenly repeatedly then goes away th... moreIt happened to me, I had it checked so they replaced the entire screen free of charge because of the warranty. Unfortunately, it flickered again once... -_-
Seriously, i have to state this once again. I fixed the touchscreen sensor problem and now the same problem OCCURED again. Idk why but looks like the build quality of this phone seems poor. You have to be extra careful (not dropping it somewhere) in order to maintain its stability. But for the previous generations of asus, there wasn't any problems like this. Goodbye asus, this is my last smartphone that i bought from you.
Enzow, 21 Nov 2017Flickering problem after 5 monthsSame problem here. .after update soo many bugs. . My phone start to screen flickering
