Asus ZenFone 3 Max ZC520TL Smartphone Review


Long battery life, limited performance. Asus' ZenFone 3 Max aims to impress with its high-capacity battery and satisfy all runtime-junkies. However, they will have to make compromises in other aspects as our test shows.

solid, slim metal casing ; good memory configuration ; USB OTG ; dual-SIM ; relatively fast GPS ; low temperatures ; very good battery life ; low power consumption ; relatively bright screen without bluish tint

12-month warranty only ; outdated security patches ; some awkward software ; clashing speaker ; tinny microphone sound ; occasional low performance

Asus' ZenFone 3 Max keeps its most important promise: Its battery life is really extremely long. As pleasing as this is, we have to say that LG's X Power even surpasses this runtime. We like the review sample's casing; it is very high-quality for this...
