Asus Zenfone Max

Build and Display

This device shows off impressive build quality, even though its body is made of plastic. Its rear offers a leather-like feel and a metallic frame to boost the appeal. But at slightly over 200 grams in weight – thanks to its large battery – the ASUS ZenFone Max is a tad bulky.

It crams in a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The screen resolution rather limits the objective level of clarity to expect. The touchscreen is protected by tough Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Camera and Storage

The ZenFone Max looks ready to serve up some great shots, going by what is provided in the camera department. It packs an impressive, wide-angle 13-megapixel main camera with dual-tone LED flash and ultra-fast laser autofocus.

The phablet also offers a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter with Selfie Panorama and Beautification features for selfie taking and video calling. ASUS ZenFone Max comes with decent internal storage of 16 GB, expandable up to 64 GB.

Performance and OS

Under the hood, the ZenFone Max is kitted with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor whose speed is clocked at 1 GHz. The CPU is paired with an Adreno 306 GPU and 2 GB of RAM.

With this configuration, this handset should deliver enjoyable performance, but it does not look like one meant for power users. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, which some may consider a bit stale. The OS is topped with ASUS’ Zen UI 2.0 skin.

Battery and Miscellaneous Specs

The main highlight of the ASUS ZenFone Max is its battery – a 5000mAh unit. ASUS claims this non-removable juicer can deliver up to 38 hours of talk time. You may say goodbye to power banks with this one – in fact, it maker says it can be used as a power bank for your other devices.

The dual-SIM ASUS ZenFone Max supports 4G LTE connectivity on one of its slot. Connectivity features also include 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Asus Zenfone Max is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Asus Zenfone Max Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N30,000 to N38,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
