Since I am on whatsapp,facebook,instagram and email most of the time It wonderfully serves my purpose of long endurance. For photos I have my DSLR and guess what with OTG cable I can transfer photos directly onto phone by connecting camera`s usb cable to it. Thus letting me share photos in matter of minutes. Its a phone that shouts Endurance!
Though takes woefully long 5hrs to charge you can put for charging before you sleep and wake up to see it fully charged. I last had moto g2 and it was a pain. This one I plan to keep for a long time, till maybe a 10,000MaH version comes ;)
Go for it! (Spare the camera though, photographer in me was left disappointed)

Im quite confused if which one is better
Selfie or Max
Im quite interested in the selfie front camera as well as the dual tone but disappointed on the gsmarena criticism or somewhat unbiased judgement
And the max is undeniably a beast when it comes to battery life and a lower price but with lower res screen somewhat slower chipset and weaker cameras
Plz someone help me
this phone is for the practical. that battery life is impressive but considering the display and the chipset used, it's definitely expected. still, asus did a great job with this phone. much better than most.

A quad-core a53 @ 1.2GHz in 28nm LP(low-power) is decent enough in casual tasks. Just don't abuse multitasking like a maniac and it will be fine. I wished this Snapdragon 410 was clocked @1.5GHz-1.7GHz though.
People got traumatized with previous quad a5/a7 chipset where it often panicked(and choked) on a handful of apps. Don't belittle the a53. It's fast and efficient. It's a good boy :)
Still, this is not a performance smartphone and it's catered as an endurance variant.
But your Crysis sarcasm went a little sideways. It's GPU-heavy and it's another story :)
One thing to say, and only one thing - if battery power is essential : Ulefone Power!!! Owned it for a long week, so far very good

It´s true Asus has plenty of bloatware, as many other manufacturers still most apps you can uninstall. Also most of the bloatware will dissapear on MM update.
All of my friends who have a Zenphone are happy, and in my humble opinion it´s one the best value for money phones out there
Asus is a BIG HORRIBLE Phone
Bought One Laser Camera one
Out of 2GB RAM just 400 MB RAM available
Entire mobile freezes/slows down
GSMARENA should give Usable RAM after first update of phones so customers dont get cheated
good day to all staff . pls do put the lowest nit brightness of this phone so that those night birdies like me may know if this phone which is asus zenfone max have the brighter rather dimness that is suitable for dark environment use:) thank you please here my request_:)more power and lots of love from the Philippines:)
why is everyone complaining about the processor? is there anything that you guys do with your smartphone that sd410 cant handle? do you run crysis on your phones?lol
Anonymous, 31 May 2016120-150h endurance if use Android 6.Yes but still no signs of the update...Hope Asus release soon
I have the new version of zenfone max with android 6.0. So far its good but camera is mediocre. Could anyone suggest any free 3rd party app?
410 Processor is old model :( . In India they released new model with 615 processor 2GB /32GB variant and 3GB/32GB Variant with lather back non removable battery
Compared to Redmi Note 3 and Meizu M3 Note, this is way...... shittier
The tradeoff between the big battery and performance isn't worth it at all.
