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 ZC553KL preview: A closer look

 

A few months back, ASUS announced its Zenfone 3 range. It's a collection of several devices, with specs ranging from affordable to high-end devices such as the Zenfone 3 Deluxe and the Zenfone 3 Ultra. The Zenfone 3 Max is at the bottom end of this...

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12-month warranty only ; outdated security patches ; some awkward software ; clashing speaker ; tinny microphone sound ; occasional low performance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 Deluxe review: Good but just not good enough

 

Asus' hardware and software choices in the past may have not been the best, but in the flagship space things get pretty competitive and even the smallest drawbacks can and will make buyers look at another brand. So does the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe cut it?

At the end of it all Asus's first flagship offering falls short of the competition. While the top-of-the-line specifications look great on paper, it's the software experience that is either lacking, or gets in your way. I noticed how the software felt...

Asus ZenFone 3 Laser Review: Borderline decent smartphone, with an unfortunate price tag

 

This is a comprehensive review of the Asus ZenFone 3 Laser ZC551KL comparing and outlining every feature of the smartphone.

Asus ZenFone 3 Laser is a decent smartphone in the whole ZenFone 3 series. But despite the decent attempt at going with tried and tested way, there is no way that I would suggest this smartphone to anyone for the Rs 18,999. I would never pay this much...

Asus ZenFone 3 Max 5.5 review: Good build, great battery; but for Rs 17,999 look elsewhere

 

What has Asus done to justify that 80 percent bump in price over the original ZenFone Max? More importantly, has the company done enough?

I can’t for the life of me figure out why Asus has priced the ZenFone 3 Max as they did. I appreciate the battery life and the build quality at this asking price of Rs 17,999, but that sluggish SoC completely ruins the experience for me. The camera is...

ASUS ZenFone 3 Max (ZC553KL) review

 

Like the entire ZenFone lineup, the ASUS ZenFone 3 is a decent smartphone. However, even with the premium pitch, there's no stand out factor running for it. It looks good on paper, but the real-world performance is limited – and would only meet the...

Good, ergonomic design ; Exceptional battery life

Iffy fingerprint sensor ; Average performance ; No Gorilla Glass protection ; Price

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

 

Asus Zenfone Max 3 is a unibody curved display smartphone that has decent performance with good battery backup and camera quality.

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