The company says the 5000MAh battery can give upto 37.6 hours talk time, 32.5 hours usage for broadband and WiFi usage and whooping 72.9 hours playback music.
Asus ZenFone Max has a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. The rear camera has a dual-tone LED flash as well. The phone has the capacity to shoot good quality images even in low light. The technology behind this is the low-light mode pixel density merging technique. The front 5-megapixel camera is good for video calling. Video recording is possible from the cameras.
The Asus ZenFone Max is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and it comes with 2GB of RAM. The phone comes with 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Asus ZenFone Max has been designed beautifully. Shiny metallic finish on all four sides and a smooth finish at the back adds to the phone's look and grip. The black variant of the phone has a leather finish at the back. ZenFone Max is available in two colours, black and white. 3.5mm jack is mounted on the top while the USB port is at the bottom. Volume keys and power button are placed on the right hand side of the device. The phone has a non-removable battery. Rear camera and flash are placed on the top of the back side.
The ZenFone Max has a 5.5. inch HD IPS display that boasts a resolution of 1280x720 and offers wide, 178-degree viewing angles, with a captivating 267 ppi pixel density. The pixel density is low compared to other models and picture details are not upto the mark for this segment.
Asus ZenFone Max comes with latest Android Lollipop 5.1 software with company's flagship ZenUI, made especially for ASUS phones. The UI features customizable gestures, such as double tap to wake up.
Our Take on Asus ZenFone Max
Keeping in mind the cost of this smart phone, Asus ZenFone Max is easy on pocket with loads of features. However, the phone ranks average on looks and performance compared to other smart phones in this segment. Good battery backup, 1080 pixel quality, 13 mega-pixel camera and call quality in this price! All this takes the competition in this segment to a new level. If you need a smart phone with excellent battery back-up and all the above specifications, you need not think twice before buying this smartphone
