Once again I’m here with a Smartphone Review, this time it’s Asus’ Zenfone Max Pro M1. I’ve used this smartphone for almost 2 weeks. I’ll be reviewing the 4GB variant of Zenfone Max Pro M1.
Technical Specifications of Zenfone Max Pro M1
It comes with 5.99″ Full HD+ (2160 x 1080) IPS display. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 509 GPU. It is having 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Internal Storage. Storage can be expanded via a MicroSD card. The Rear Camera is of 13MP + 5MP (dual camera setup) and Front Camera is of 8MP. It comes with 5000mAh battery. Android 8.1 (Oreo) is what you get out of the box in Zenfone Max Pro M1.
For me, I personally like those phones more which are having Stock Android instead of any custom skins and this is what I liked the most about Zenfone Max Pro M1. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the first ASUS smartphone to ship with Pure Android. Coming to the Performance, device was able to handle the large apps and operations very well. Meaning that it is fast enough for multi-tasking and gaming also, thanks to Snapdragon 636 processor.
The Camera performance of this Smartphone is good in bright conditions. Rear camera performs well in Portrait mode. Portrait mode is also available in Front Camera. In the low-light conditions, there is still improvement needed in both the Rear and Front Camera. Although Asus has recently rolled out OTA updates for Zenfone Max Pro M1, which improves both the Rear and Front camera performance. I’ve uploaded some sample shots below.
And how can I forget the big battery! This device is equipped with huge 5000mAh battery, so it’ll definitely last for a full day even on 4G. In case you’re a normal user then you might be able to get battery backup of more than 1.5 days in a single charge. It took approximately 2:30 hours to charge from 3% to 100% with supplied charger. Talking about Speaker, Speaker does produce loud and quality sound.

Final Thoughts on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1
The battery backup is awesome and the performance is also terrific at this price range. Hence it is a good competitor to the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
