One of Asus' most popular smartphones of late has been the Asus ZenFone Max (Review). Launched in January this year, it offered a solution of one of many smartphone's biggest flaws: battery life. Although the phone was average in most ways, it certainly exceeded expectations in the battery department.

Asus ZenFone Max (2016) Summary

The Asus ZenFone Max (2016) is essentially the same smartphone as before, but with a new, more powerful SoC and a bump up to 32GB of internal storage. The great battery life remains, although the more power-hungry Snapdragon 615 has some effect on this. Additionally, the camera's laser autofocus feature is still excellent and helps in taking good macros and indoor shots. The ZenFone Max (2016) remains a great phone to consider at this price, especially if battery life is important to you.

  • Just amazing phone from Asus...
    Shubam Sadapally (Sep 8, 2016) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    The first thing i got this handset is looking at Snapdragon 615 at such affordable price and the performance it delivers is just amazing. Lag free experience, good camera quality, excellent battery life, decent design and good value for money. I bought it on a discount, you too can, i will give the link here, just copy and paste the below URL in your broswer.
