I have this phone for a month or so. And it's pretty good, fast and the battery can hold a lot of processes , apps. I charge it around once per 2 days, but i use it extensively, otherwise the battery can hold for more than 2 days. People who experience batter heat, it is because you dont update it, once you update it for a newer version, there is no more batter heat. And it works even greater after the updates, which i had two of them until now.
okay. i bought this phone last Sept. 15, 2018 and not familiar with some stuff... but 1 thing is sure...the battery is easily heat when playing games. 10 minutes and up. im using wifi and still baterry drains fast... hmppppppppp... 'battery king" idk whats that since for me thats not true... hoping asus will update this phone to android oreo and make ways to lower the baterry heat up... i love asus phones, i got laptop, zenfone 5, zenfone 2 laser, zenfone max 5.5 and this new one.
Thank you asus.
Hey there's one thing good about this phone. You can use it to iron ur clothes coz it can really heat up in like 15 mins of gaming and then it will start to lag.
I bought this last July 9 and things are starting to get worse every single day! I chose this because of its said "performance" and now, I just hate it. 1. It is not the "battery king" as they say. 2. The left side of the speaker is not working same as the right side (ofc in all sorts of music, I tried). 3. IT HEATS UP WAY TOO HIGH. 4. I cant seem to find some downloaded files?? 5. It lags sometimes even when Im not using any games or there are no background apps. Im just using messenger. And 5. Whenever I restart it, it wont open again. Even when using the power button. As in no response at all unless I charge it, then the LED indicator will light up and after like 10-15 minutes, it will turn itself on again. 6. MY SD CARD WON'T WORK! I'm using a 32 gb Sandisk SD Card and I bought it the very same day when I bought this phone. At first, everything was fine. I saved pics, vids, and musics in it, then soon after, some pics were corrupted. Same thing when I took photos using the camera. Vids wont play. Musics wont play the whole length. There is always this thing that needs me to grant an access to my SD card and it will always fail! I thought the update will fix this but nah. I just hate it. THIS IS MY FIRST ASUS PHONE AND I HOPE IT WILL BE THE LAST.
Just switch my phone from Galaxy j6 over this.. im dissapointed at the low quality speakers and battery life.. J6 can last up to 3 hrs on straight gaming.. but the Max plus only last 1 hr.. J6 has 3000mah , Maxplus 4100 ..wth
Went ahead to buy this phone because of the negative comments ... This phone is above excellent ......sharp front and back camera.... FHD QUALITY DISPLAYS.... Crispy and clear audio output and wonderful sound when using earplugs...fast facial recognition... 0.1s fingerprint scanning...super fast internet but got hot a little while on 4g ... Full day battery life on heavy usage... Lag free... I'm getting another unit for someone tomorrow...winks
KABUDELZ, 23 Aug 2018Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is upgradable on OREO? thanksIn Portugal it is planned for September
I can't use youtube and there's no volume at all, even when I alarm or in any app. How can I fix these?
Sad Fellow, 08 Jul 2018Really disappointed by this phone. I love ASUS for other products, but on the first day of own... moreUPDATE: Noticed that lots of apps wont auto sync and I can't find a solution. My guess is that the mods ASUS made to Android is causing the problem.
Hello, just bought this fone yesterday. I have problems on fluctuating volume when using the radio, does anybody have a solution to this?
