I had been using this handset for 4 years and the issues i encountered were
1.i got it's battery replaced in feb 2021 because it started swelling.
2. It's bluetooth version support just SBC codec ( embarrassing).Norma phones support AAC and AptX. Also the chipset is very cheap. It sounds like muffled sounds lacking details and instruments separation. Not at all for audiophiles.
3.It's audio jack deiver a bit improvment but almost same sound.
4.It's wifi Chipset doesn't support 5ghz wifi. What a shame ASUS? Seriously in 18000 u can't put a decent wifi chipset? Even my MI4 supports it which i bought in 2014 (i think)

Was a dependable device from 2019 till last week, when suddenly the screen went blank while browsing Quora site. I don't play games. Later understood that it was a failure of Device Memory. Had to change the Memory. Lost all the stored apps not backed up in Google.
Speaker has deteriorated in two years of use.

best budget phone i've ever had. 2 years using it and still working fine. I hope Asus continue making M series in the future.

  • Beno

Can I update to android 11 and is it safe to?

  • jock

By far the best phone I had...Wonder why asus stopped making budget models

  • anon

best phone ever, almost 3 years. all i do was custom rom back at 2019 and been sticking to it till now.

my previous phone was Redmi 4x and it is the most troublesome phone. if i don't flash new rom every 3 months, it will heat up even just for browsing.

but this max pro m1, never heat and never slow down. amazing budget phone from asus. too bad they don't give budget phone again

I bought this phone on nov 2018, during these (almost) three years of heavy use I had 0 software issues, I always download the latest official software updates from asus & now still using the android 9 version (still works good :)

The only problem I had several months ago was battery bulging & it drained power rapidly.. I think it's because I often play games with the charger plugged in when low battery, but then I replaced the battery & now its working again like new..

It fell many times from my pocket & from tables but all the components (camera, lcd etc..) still working fine, the impact only damaged the tempered glass.. Surprisingly it also survived wet conditions in my pant's pocket after I got showered by heavy rain several times over.. IDK if it has something to do with the protective silicone casing which I always use or just my luck..

My main purpose buying this phone was for gaming, (I play MLBB, PUBGM, CODM, LOL:WR & some others smoothly on this 4/64 device) so I didn't gave too much thought on camera quality.. but IMO the picture/video quality itself is somewhat okay-ish or still torelable at the very least..

So my conclusion: This is a sturdy & reliable mid-range phone that is quite good for gaming, but if you're looking for a phone with a "good" camera, Max Pro M1 is not the one for you.

  • Rengg

Bought it at November 2018. Still working fine, battery still strong and just update to android Q. Makes it more smooth and fun to use. You can download Android 10 (Q) in the Asus official website and upgrade by yourself.
