So the larger battery assists with people in more rural areas who might not be able to charge up in every vehicle/office/cafe etc whenever they want, and gives them enough power to easily last a whole day or more and can be left to charge overnight
Just my 2-cents :)
I just wish US/EU phones from major brands like Samsung/Sony/LG etc came with that size battery on a standard 5.2" model, it's what, about half that on most of them? I'll be keeping my eye on Asus to see if they make a higher spec 'major market' model with the battery kept in tact, fingers crossed!
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2017It's practically the same phone as the one listed on this site as Asus Zenfone Pegasus 3sHey why Asus is not available zenfone 3s max in black color???

omygod why would you make a phone as great as this with a 5000 mah battery and no usb c?!? why micro v2??? wtf did anyone look this over and be like "oh hey this'll take 7 years to charge but it'll last a long time
no quick charge at all
the full charge take 4 hours!!!
u can also use the battery to charge another phone, but when u dont have access to any qucick charge, its not matter the battery is 5000mah or even 10000mah

The asus 3S FOUCS only 5000 mah battery. the very old mediateak processor MT6750 we very well know this processor in oppo f1s and vivo v5. all the chaina made are using this kind of poor performance handset.The diplay only HD. very poor camera f2.2. only thing 5000 mah battery when we get full good spec with good price. 5000mah li-polymer battery is very bad why dont li-ion battery. samsung a9 pro using li-ion battery it give super battery back up.
melo0913, 02 Feb 2017im so excited about this phone.. 5000maH batteryDon't take this phone...
Best option for you red mi 3s
its a big problem for me if this phone doesnt have quick charge. 5000mAh will takes about 4+ hours to fully charge. samsung galaxy a9 pro comes with fast charge and it takes 2hrs and 40 mins to fully charge.
Gemini, 03 Feb 20175000 mAh and doesn't have quick charge?Well, why would you need fast charging if this could last you 2 days and you charge everyday.
When for the famous GSM Arena battery test? It would be very good to compare.
the design built of the phone is a copied one looks like samsung j series
though it claims to compete RN4, but its not worth of, in comparison to its specs.
RN4 still the winner.
I have the Zenfone Max with 5000 mAh and no fast charging. It is true that charging to the 100 % takes almost 4 hours. But then you have fuel for a whole week! I usually charge mine once a week, the friday night.
from the front like SAMSUNG n like LG from the back view, love the old model
