Amoled FHD screen compared to IPS LCD FHD
power efficient processor 14nm SD625 compared to 28 nm SD SD430
5000 mAh battery compared to 4100 mAh battery.
It also have fast charging with several reviewer points out it fully charge in around 2 hour compared to 4 hour at least on asus.
Not counting the Amoled,14nm, and 5000 mAh effect on battery life compared to LCD, 28nm, and 4100 mAh (p2 is the reigning battery life champ here).
the comparison could goes on and on as you compared overpriced low/entry smartphone to a mid ranger.
But again in rupiah p2 is at 4.5 million and Zenphone 3 max is at 3 million.
Alternatively you could spend 2 million something at Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and get better phone than zenphone 3 max.
A really thick black lining on the edges of the screen.

Nice smartphone. It's like the mini version of Asus Zenfone Zoom with it's large battery and dual camera.
Android - Prime, 04 Jul 2017He has a point, the original zenfone max only uses 5 inch 720p panel.
The chipset also runs s... moreBecause of its efficiency. We all know it's not just the capacity, but it's probably the major factor for a device's battery life.
A 3000mAh SD625-powered 720p smartphone still won't beat a 5000mAh SD625-powered 720p smartphone, given they're the same exact model except for battery size and processor differences.

No further improvements from its earlier models like Zenfone 4, 5, 6. Never put full steam to propel its phone division into something worthy of mention like ZTE. I bought 601KL and that is it. No more one-trick wonder for me. Honor V9 wows and wows me now. Available from aliexpress.com. Use carefully and one year is over without casualty.

Snapdragon 625, Fast charging, amoled display are added bonus.
That's very poor design, putting such a monster battery into a puny phone that's as slow as a slug on crutches. The should be using Snapdragon 660, at least.
skyzo97, 04 Jul 2017Outdated chipset. Asus should use SD450 or SD625 instead.agree :(
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2017Moto X4 will probably use SD630 and 3000 mAh battery, according to the newest leaks. So nope, ... moreYeah I keep hearing more and more chatter about it not having the SD 660 and 3800 mAh battery, bummer I thought this would be the successor to the Moto Z Play and past Moto X's with unique designs.
I am using ZenFone max 2
The only problem is heavy and bulk
Though my hands are big it is very uncomfortable and thickness also makes very weir using

I have ZenFone 3 max whose battery is supposed to be 4100mah but I used to charge 2 times a day so I don't believe in numbers anymore I regret buying the 3max because of its battery.
TechLover1, 04 Jul 2017Well, basically, what is definitely 100% sure is, that the 5000mAh battery is absolutely appre... moreThey can do this with budget smartphones, but not for the high ended ones.
We would like our batteries to be as large capacity as 5000 mAh, now that you took away removable batteries in high end products to cater the masses who think thin is good. I would not mind battery capacity to be as large as 10,000 mAh so that you don't make us come to you to replace a measly sealed battery once 300-500 charging cycles are up, just like how Apple was doing to milk its customers.
We also know about how you are sneakily making us kill the battery faster by making fast charging as innovative. Or that fact that you are also cashing in with wireless (NOT!) charging, adding more heat to the charging process, again killing the battery faster so you have us buying next year's new smartphones.
