It may not be the fastest ride - and it sure ain't the hottest - but it comes with a full tank and mileage to spare. 5,000 milliamp-hours... That's more juice than many tablets get and enough to charge 3 iPhone 6's. The Asus Zenfone Max is no joke when it gets to battery backup. But it's a smartphone in its own right - an affordable midranger at that.
It has a 5.5-inch display with Gorilla Glass 4, and although the resolution is rather low at 720p, we can see how 1080p would have cost more and required more processing power - neither of which fits with the Max's main purpose: endurance.
The Snapdragon 410 doing the math is by no means a record breaker, but a decent chipset that carries dual-SIM support, LTE and 1080p video recording. With 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable inbuilt storage, the Max has the basics covered.
On the other hand, the 13MP laser autofocus camera from the Zenfone Laser and Zenfone Selfie didn't fall victim to budget and longevity constraints. On the front there's a 5MP wide-angle shooter, bright aperture too.
Perhaps the non-removable battery complaint is shaky when you simply have so much of it. Well, the plain 1A charger does become an issue then, even more so considering the chipset does support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 but hey, the phone comes quite reasonably priced and an extra quick charger won't break the bank.
We know you want the battery numbers, but there's an established order here, and no Max is going to break it. Unboxing and the hardware overview follow on the next page, but our battery test is right around the corner.
I have used this phone since January 2016, it's almost 5 years old now. It was quite a good experience. Towards the latter half of 2019 it lost some sensitivity in the touch screen and in early 2020 almost 70% of the screen was no longer sensiti...
Good strong phone I brought 2016 still using it. basic phone for general use you can't expect much like modern phone. Due to technology advancement it will not support the latest app I mean it work but very slow we lost our coolness. phone software s...
