This is my review of the Zenfone Max. It's performance is quite remarkable, I have installed a whole lot of social apps some of which are quite heavy while they are running in the background response speed only slows down by a tiny bit and if I add Games to it the game still responds quite well.
Battery power in my usage, I usually charge it after 1 or 2 days. If I never used my phone my phone would really last around 2 to 4 days.
I'm uncomfortable with the size being that it's 5.5 inches, using it with one hand is quite difficult. One hand mode helps but not by much.
I dropped the phone a couple of times, like twice now. Dents can easily happen on the edges of the phone but damages on the screen not so much. I do have one small scratch though on the screen, who knows what scratched it, it can't be seen though, and can't be felt as well but if you take a close look at it, it'll show.
I rate this a 4/5 for your money.
zul, 11 May 2016Which one better for camera quality, samsung j7 or zenfone max? Somebody help meZenFone max
Anil, 11 May 2016Is this supports 4G network ?Yes, it is. It supports 4G LTE for SIM 1. I am using it now
i bought this phone after having an iphone for years, and then switching to an htc one m8, which was terrible. this phone is amazing.
-everything is customization and comes with the phone stock because of asus apps
-nice quality, and leather back makes it so that a case isnt a huge deal
-feels nice and hefty, like it wont break after you drop it, or that it was made cheaply.
-apps run while you pull down the notifcations menu. rly nice for when you accidentally open them so that you dont screw up what your app is doing
-apps dont get in the way. even on my htc one m8 some apps were in the way while you were doing other stuff
-music app pre-installed is nice
-lots of customization with the widgets
-flashlight without having to unlock the phone
-huge battery life
-on button is on the side, so not very likely to press on it's own
-home, back, and multitask buttons that come on all androids are on the actual phone instead of in the ui. this may not seem like a big deal, but it is, because it not only makes the screen bigger, but they also dont get in the way, and you can use them whenever you want as opposed to trying to open them on a regular android like an htc one m8
-no other phone has such a great value for it's ram and battery life. i searched, but even the blu studio energy with it's massive battery life cant compete with this phone's ram, value, and name. asus is a great brand
why did not come my message in the apps of messenger,i use the same phone max,but no meassage,what should i do?

SaitamaBabe, 10 May 2016Hi! Planning to purchase Zenfone Max tomorrow but a lil bit confuse as I also like Samsung J7?... moreJ7 is more preferable for gaming and other social stuff, but if you want a good battery and better editing, go with Max
Hi! Planning to purchase Zenfone Max tomorrow but a lil bit confuse as I also like Samsung J7? Which is better guys? Anyone? I admire the bat 5000mah on Asus how about some other features? How was it?
[deleted post]I would say J7 is better choice if playing games on high graphic settings is your main priority - It has better processor.
If you are not so so so much into games then go for Zenfone Max. It has more ram, protection with gorilla glass4, louder than J7,with secondary noise cancellation mic, better battery and you can still play games on decent graphic settings.
Its been 1week2days now. Has anyone facing notification bar lag in manual brightness mod after the latest update?
Mad, 08 May 2016is this upgradeable to marshmallow???Asus has announced but not confirm date .
[deleted post]I presume j7 cuz it dont have too many samsung app that might eat up your ram. Asus have too many apps and all of it are useless. Trus me, i bought zenfone max for about 1 week now. I have problem like status bar lag.
Chethan, 09 May 2016I want to purchase ASUS ZENFONE MAX ZC550KL, please anyone suggest me whether can I go with this.Max is so bulky phone . Battery bukup is to good but handset go slow but camera is not more but good. I recommend sumsung j5. Max get maximum time to full charge it get approx 3 hour for full charge. If your budget 10000 thousand then you look for samsung j5 or lg l90. Max is too big screen and resolution is no too good.
