So in my country I found this phone with 2 product codes: 6A019WW and 1A001WW. anyone has any idea what the difference is? the 6A019WW is a little more expensive but I can't figure out why.
I was skeptical at the first time to select best phone for my budget if I went through this website.
It was because of too much bashing and bad story for each of the phones over here. None good phone existed in this world if read out from GSM Arena's user opinions. Until I purchase a MAX phone, could realized different story from the truth and fake.
One thing I saw much much complaints in GSM Arena peoples from India-marketed. Sorry to say it.. most of India country users were over reacted and too much criticized on low/medium budget phones such you were paying very expensive iphones 6s. expecting all functions to work like a workstation PC? . Why? Your were born to become world-complaints country rather than produce your own country-origin products or brand-name?
All of those complaint to such cheaper phones were made over by looking at the iPhone benchmark. Please also bare in mind anything in the world is costly. If want a high end super good phone pay for the prices . Slower speed or lagging is something relatives. If were dumped so many background running apps, (Android opened for junk apps) of course the performance will reduced. Do not compare apple with papaya. :) just my humble opinion. Be sincere on your opinion.
I just got his MAX Zenfone 3 days ago. I have used it with rough usage, video & voice call of many hours, surfing, messaging, capture photos etc, and it's battery still remain 1/3 of full capacity. It has huge battery capacity and seems not easily drain out as normal mobile phone.
Connectivity : Both SIM Slots are LTE 4G ready. Stability of connectivity very good and very stable compared to my old Samsung TAB 7 phones. Internet browsing very smooth and much better than my old TAB device with 3G or WiFi connected. No complain at all, one of the best wireless connectivity for mobile phone so far.
Display : The display very nice for watching movie, gaming, touch sensitivity also better than my old device.
Sound : This phone has backside speaker, (underneath the back covers) so this will reduce the sound bass/ low frequency reproduction. The clarity is ok. But You will find it will get less loud when lying on a bed/ pillow because the speaker grills will be 'suffocated'. Better to play music will equalizer band to make it balance of clarity and muffle sound.
Until now I still don't experienced any abnormality of heats dissipation from this device. I just found it will increase the heats when making a continuous hours of video call.
I don't understand why were so many users complaints over almost all phones models at GSM Arena about heats when charging. To be clarified, of course the nature of Li-Po or any types of rechargeable batteries will produce several heats when charging, especially when it is being used at the same moment. Don't use your phone while charging if you feel not safe or uncomfortable with heats produced.That also that is not a good practice for any kind of electronics equipment, to draw down the battery current together charged them. It will produces a lot of heats because the charging chips need to maximize the loading currents to the devices and will lower down the life time of the battery.
Bottom line- With specifications at this price point, I could say this is one of the best phone if its working as it is for a long life time. The camera done excellent, crispy clear even at lower light (lower light source is different will dark terms).
The drawback of this phone is a little bit heavy relatively compared to others.
After all, I'm very satisfied with this phone.
This phone has one big problem. Volume too soft even with earphones on! I regret buying it.
GoraNn, 31 Mar 2016Well it shouldn't... People come here mainly to complain. You can read many bad comments even... more100% agree with
these people who complainig mobile are not even used it
the common problems they told in below 10k phones are
i have see lot reviews on (k3note, a6000+,zenfones , coolpad, micromax,k5 plus,etc)
in below 10 k segment what do you expect more .is this spec are not enough for u?
you peoples complains even moto g3 , if u want 100% best mobiles just go for flagship mobiles priced above 35k
Its heats a lot while charging? can heat harm pghone in any way? Or what to do for reducing heat? Can I charge it in AC or cool place?
GoraNn, 31 Mar 2016Well it shouldn't... People come here mainly to complain. You can read many bad comments even... moreI agree with your saying, even i myself do encountered people like tis, but all tis r human nature, i understand tat at times when phone user getting a new phone is depending on their luck too, but as a technical person myself in mobile industry, tis issue is really too extreme, n not just only for tis model, yesterday i look at other review from other links, they also encountered the same issue for others zenfone, so can i say out of 10, 8 is the unlucky ones getting the new phone? I dun really like to comment things in tis way, but thinking back, all tis issue really causing me alot of inconvenient, although tis phone is not expensive, but at least should have the quality standards, there is a review below saying that, even he/she went to the service centre, the centre also not able to help, what is the meaning of tis? I paid for my product yet Asus is not able to solve my issue.
bad'z, 28 Mar 2016i really want to buy this phone...but some comments made me confuse! is this phone really worth it?Well it shouldn't... People come here mainly to complain. You can read many bad comments even on super expensive, high end flagships. You wouldn't see any satisfied users here, because they don't bother comming here and commenting if the device is ok.
So I'm satisfied user that haven't experienced ANY! of those issues below. Even if I lost my Zenfone max I would buy it again. I encourage buying this phone if the specs and price are acceptable to you.
Keep in mind that if something doesn't work as it should that is probably because the unprofessional dealer that can potentially damage any device of any brand. In worst case you have warranty and you can replace your device or ask for a refund. I would highly recommend you to buy it from credible phone dealer so your device would be perfect.
Hope this helps.
