This phone is good at everything except games and its slow charging time...but I don't mind since i'm not a gamer myself...and slow charging time can be rectified by buying a good fast charger...very handy when travelling, no need to worry abt the battery...both camera are decent for social media photography...I LOVE MY "BEAST" ZENFONE MAX...
The phone is Good i am using it almost from 6months but it has now turned very slow after playing Asphalt and also using memory card with 64gb space.
If you donot play games then this is the best fit,else try Samsung.
asus zenfone Max is a nice phone good picture quality.. there is the alarm clock that u have to search it but if u cant find out go to shopkepper & throw the phone to his face
And what about sound? High enough? Good quality? And with headphones? I read it's too low on headphones, is that right?
I bought Asus Zenfone Max ZC500KL last 05, April 2016. Asus Zenfone 5 A500KL (2014 model) is much faster than Asus Zenfone Max ZC550KL. I can tell because I played with my friend using Clash Royale using this two phones. (FYI: I also owned a Zenfone 5 A500KL after I lost it, this was the phone I considered replacing) You can see the difference between the gameplay smoothness which is the Zenfone Max is inferior than the Zenfone 5.
From the 3 games I downloaded after a Factory Reset just to be sure the lagging doesn't come from the other apps installed, 2 out of 3 games where really lagging.
1.) Sandstorm: Pirates War (New Game) - Lag Meter is 4 out of 5
2.) Minions Paradise - Lag Meter is 2 out of 5
3.) Clash Royale - Not actual lagging but the smoothness of the game is inferior
I can also felt lagging after a reboot, don't know why, but I followed what the ASUS Support have emailed me, that they suggest that I do a factory reset... and I did, I even update the system first before trying installing anything but it never solved my problem, after that ASUS no longer replied to my emails or complains.
Overall is a good phone with a lot of good features, great camera, good battery-life... but DON'T BUY this if your someone who uses his/her phone for gaming purposes... Just don't, the only thing left for me to solve this is to resell the phone and buy a new one...
Like Hiroga Katageri said, this phone is a bit difficult to use with one hand. Budget wise, this phone is a money saver because you don't need a powerbank anymore (the phone itself is the powerbank :) ). It costs around 8,500 - 7,995 pesos in the Philippines. The camera is identical to the Zenfone Laser 5.5" variant.

Jhessa Is My Princes, 13 May 2016sir any negative review? Im planning to buy one.My only negative review here would be it's uncomfortable on my hand. It's very difficult to operate it using one hand, you seriously have to use two hands with this phone or have big hands. There aren't many negative things to say, since it's quite an inexpensive phone for the amount of features and specs you get. Oh wait, battery is non-detachable so I guess it would be difficult to replace it if any issues came up? Aside from that though everything works fine.
