There is some serious chaos with this model -ZC554KL which on the Asus webpage has the name Zenfone 4- and the the model Asus X00ID which is supposed to be the Zenfone 4 Max.
They are almost identical and both bear the same name Zenfone 4 Max for example above in the title but they are NOT THE SAME. the Asus X00ID has only a 720p screen and 3gb memory. It is shocking that Asus seems to be intentionally confusing the customers with a cheaper and less capable but very similar model. Shame on them. I'm not saying the Asus X00ID is a bad phone, but obviously you shouldn't pay the same price for a lower config phone.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2017Asus zenfone max charging is not bad . Its about 3 hours and 30 minutes 0%-100% when you charg... morebut what will I do .. my brother has this phone also and when his battery is 57% the remaining time of his battery is 2days left.. but my 3day old phone is 50% but mine is 7hours remaining time. is there any problem,? can I return this?
OrkhanN, 08 Oct 2017Primary camera is Dual 13 MP or Dual 13 MP + 5 MP?Dual camara is 5MP or 2MP. Normal camera has up to 13MP. But I'm disappointed to see that dual camara even on 5MP takes too pixelled pictures. A 2Mb picture with Zenfone 4 Max has the quality of a 300Kb picture in my old Galaxy S3. If Asus intends to sell the phone because of the dual camera, at least they should have invested in a good optical. Avoid if you're accustomed to Samsung images :(
And yes, sadly it has 3Mb RAM, not 4Mb (at least in Spain)
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2017Is the GPS functioning well? I'm currently using Zenfone Max which has the GPS problem. I think so, I experienced the same GPS issue on my previous Zenfone 5 Lite. I need GPS badly on my job. Hope this was fixed.
Asus king of Bloatwa, 09 Oct 2017Too much Bloatware just avoid this brand. Be easy, put lineageos, and have a excelente phone with a pure system.

On the Asus website it states that the screen resolution is 1280 x 720 Pixels Display, not as much as you say. Can you check please?
Giewen, 07 Oct 2017Is this phone really 4gb ram?Looks like this information came from Asus website. The Asus Store website says only 3Gb.
I'm having some issues with the cignal drops, I'm not sure if i'ts with the sim card or not. But I tried using it on my iPad 3 and itbhas full bars of lte and no signal drop, i guess it's with the nougat update.. What the eff
I bought the phone, been using for almost month now.
totally satisfied, that 5000mah battery is awesome.
the phone may not have the flagship killer specs but indeed a great phone.
worth the price, worth the money.
I would rather trust ASUS than any chinese re-branded phones. ;)
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2017Well as I stated earlier, it took the phone about 7 hours to full charge from 15%. It's my sec... moreYou just have to plug it again, wait a couple mins until it says anything below ~"3hrs remaining until full" (because it shouldnt go that long, unless from 0% probably)
edlis, 27 Sep 2017how's the sound when you play a recorded video?Fair, no noise cancelling so better have a technique when capturing videos with audio.
