By any standards, ASUS is a company who knows how to make a good smartphone. Just as importantly, they are also a company who knows how to make an affordable smartphone and 2015 saw ASUS introduce their ZenFone 2. Which proved to be an extremely popular option and largely thanks to the ZenFone 2 sporting flagship smartphone specs, but not a flagship smartphone price. Since then the company has released a number of variants of the ZenFone 2 which although all adopt a similar design language, do come with specific selling points. The ASUS ZenFone Max being a prime example with its increased battery life.
In terms of the specs, the ASUS ZenFone Max comes equipped with a 5.5-inch display which makes use of a 1280 x 720 resolution. Inside, the ASUS ZenFone Max comes equipped with 2GB RAM and is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Quad-core processor (clocking at 1.2 GHz). In terms of storage, this is a smartphone which does only come with 16GB internal storage, although it is a smartphone which offers storage-expansion thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot (up to 64GB). Moving to the camera side of things and the ASUS ZenFone Max comes loaded with a 13-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Of course, one of the big (literally) selling points and the reason for its “Max” name is that this is a smartphone which comes powered by a 5,000 mAh capacity battery. While it is a non-removable battery, with this sort of capacity, there should not be too many battery issues to worry about. The software experience on offer comes in the form of Android 5.0 (Lollipop) which is overlaid with the company’s own Zen UI 2.0. Additional features include dual-SIM support and 4G LTE support. In terms of the network compatibility, the ASUS ZenFone Max is listed to work on 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 MHz and 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100 MHz.
While the specs might not be anything too amazing on paper, the battery life on offer is a clear winner and will be an ideal solution for those looking for an affordable handset and one which will easily maintain a charge throughout the day. In terms of the price and just to highlight how much battery capacity you are getting for your money, this is a smartphone which can be currently purchased through GearBest for only $141.40. For a smartphone which comes equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery and priced at under $150, this is a smartphone worth considering. Head through the link below to find out more.
