Asus ZenFone 3 Max review: A rather odd device review

 

A good phone marred by a low-end processor

Stellar battery life ; Good camera ; Premium and classy design

Extremely low-end processor ; Overpriced ; Average display ; Heavy and laggy UI

While the ZenFone 3 Max has a good camera, stellar battery life and a premium design, the decidedly low-end processor and laggy UI pull it down massively. The ZenFone 3 has a few positives such as stellar battery life, a decent camera and a great...

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12-month warranty only ; outdated security patches ; some awkward software ; clashing speaker ; tinny microphone sound ; occasional low performance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

ASUS ZenFone 3 Max (ZC550KL) Review

 

ASUS Zenfone 3 Max launched in India. It's more of a battery-life-oriented phone (4,100 mAh). About 5.2-inch sized and covered by a metallic body with 2.5D

Strong Built ; Decent Camera ; Long Battery Life ; Fast Fingerprint Scanner

Mediocre CPU processing ; Weak Touch Responsiveness, Prone to Smudges

People already wants a phone with longer battery life and you are the one, consider it if you like the brand value. There are some alternatives to it like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which also comes to play when it’s a showdown for the battery runtime,...

Asus Zenfone 3 Max Review- The Latest Premium Smartphone under 20K

• Metal Design ; • Snappy performance ; • Good battery life ; • Big bright display ; • Good camera

• Costly ; • Average sound performance ; • Average multi tasking performance ; • Too much bloatware

ASUS ZenFone 3 Max review: Battery capacity isn't everything

 

The outgoing ZenFone Max has set high expectations, but how does the ZenFone 3 Max fare as a battery juggernaut? Will it fare as good, or would it be even better? We take the fancier new Max phone for a spin and find out.

Premium design ; Fingerprint sensor ; Attractive UI

720p screen ; Excessive bloatware ; Underwhelming battery life ; Lethargic performance

Within Mobile Manager, you’ll find other controls, such as App Permissions and Data Usage. These are handy – App Permissions allow the user to limit the apps that can auto-start when the phone is booted up, while providing a handy way to disable...
