I actually initially returned this phone after buying it. I felt it was a bit choppy and thought I could get better for the price. I was wrong. I tried other phones and did extremely thorough Internet research and ended buying BACK the same Max Plus phone, from Best Buy again. Ultimately, for the price, it is a very good quality phone. The screen, battery, and overall speed are great. Very crisp, colourful and snappy experience. It does heat up a lot, the buttons and overall design is clunky, and it can be choppy, but if you look at the specs, this is simply best phone you can get for the price.
LAN, 08 Feb 2018Asus still did not learn on the 1st time they did put MTK on their devices. Overheating issues... moreThey did this probably because they learned that the last time they use snapdragon 615, 616, and 617 on their phones, all of them got overheating, slowdown and lagging, also battery drain issues.
i'm considering about getting mi a1, but this one seems to be nice alternative. i wonder if someone could give good comparison between these two
also i heard that most zenfone with mediatek got some serious overheating issue, i wonder if this one still suffered the same
i brought one and i like it just like my good old asus zenfone 5 (intel SoC) i only hate is the screen protection its only typical glass for smartphone. audio output on speaker is decent poor and software (mostly google apps like music player) yes it heat up for long hours of use full brightness. this is worth for bucks for me unlike oppo A57 (ONLY I LIKE IS COLLABORATION OF DIRAC AB for audio the rest specs for girls or ladies like selfie anyday)
Just want to know did u guys just update ur software? Since asus have a terrible update,should i update the software?

Blackadder, 08 Mar 2018Works like a charm. No battery problems at all. Actually a very good set for its price!How many hours your batt last using data browsing and chat? Thanks
AnonD-742792, 06 Mar 2018Is it recomended?Recomended because the price is very cheap and you can get fullview display in very compact design, big ram and rom, good front camera, face unlock and the new zen ui is very nice and smooth.
z, 09 Mar 2018nova 2i no fastchargingMy dear friend, I have been using Asus phones for years with fast charging feature. You can only use fast charging feature if you purchase a fast charger. Asus charger from the box are not fast chargers.
Works like a charm. No battery problems at all. Actually a very good set for its price!
AnonD-742792, 06 Mar 2018Is it recomended?Sorry, but it is not. Its name is BATTERY KING butit actually isn't. And you cannot enjoy the features on the phone that are supposed to be the best features of the phone
I already bought this unit yesterday, the performance of this phone is very good, the cameras (rear and front) are very good, no lag at all, but there's one thing, the battery life of this phone is on the average level. But still the battery could last 8-10 hours standby.
Very bad experience with this phone... tried. The super megapixel and the outcome is that the person looks like a zombie not pixelated.
AnonD-738402, 18 Feb 2018Originally i wanted the normal zenfone max; no finger print & dual camera based on my budg... morehow much is the original message occupy the memory? since is only available 32GB internal storage in Malaysia
I'm currently using this device as my daily drive. The battery is very good even i dont use power saving mode, it has 7-8 hours of SOT with almost 17 hours intensify use, in Indonesia, max plus has HD res, i feel disappointed knowing that asus decrease it resolution, but it acceptable, even the quality of screen is average.
The main question is why asus put mediatek chipset here, even it has MT6750T as oppo f3 and vivo v5 had ever used, asus can put helio p23.
Performance is not so great, its just average, online game like Mobile Legend and Vain glory has a no lag but fpsdrop is appear somewhere, netmarble evil bane is fully playable too.
Surprisingly, there is no heat or even overheat issue while this device is being used in intensivve gaming, even it use mediatek.
Maybe, mali TP860mp2 in asus max plus is similar like in helio p10. Or, reducing screen from fulhd to hd is a nice decision.
I dont know why everyone seems have heat and battery drain issue, maybe it because they have fullHD version.
