charging well after cleaning the port and charging cable.
My only problem with the phone is sub par antennas. They really struggle inside buildings where even my 5+ year old One plus One does great.

getting 'reverse charging' notification repeatedly. Phone no longer gaining charge. Battery was doing great until yesterday. Now suddenly this problem has come up.

Pros:
+ 6gb Ram with that price range
+ Decent camera & audio
+ Big battery life
+ Can play ML without lagging due to graphic
+ Decent Android 8

Cons:
- Internet connection are often drop (poor antenna hardware)
- only normal charging (fastest can go is 5V-2A), Quick Charge will not work. In fact, it will slow down charging speed by ~60%
- Android 10 upgrade was dropped by developer team (for now)
- Thumb print at back of phone will reduce it sensitivity over time

Verdict: 7/10 (Decent)
- very decent for its price range
- the best budget phone for ~RM600

Well I'm a long time user of Asus Max Pro M1 4GB 64GB Variant and an early adopter. When this phone came out, the specs were great for a entry mid ranger and I specifically bought this phone for PUBG Mobile as it had a decent processor, big screen and a big battery. A year back, I was able to play PUBG Mobile with minor lags in smooth and high settings but fast forward to 2020 and the game is barely playable on this phone and even the GFX tools do not help the gameplay. I'm just waiting to see if Android 10 will be any good on this phone. If Android 10 upgrade is good, I might keep this phone for another year for basic usage.

If really is a bug, I can also say is the game bug that doesn't tune down the graffic and processing for lower end processor.
I have use many smartphone before, and gaming on heavy graffic and high processing game is always not reliable.
Then, smartphone are not like PC, where you can upgrade the processor and graffic card. So, when a game run freeze and hang, it will be totally out of luck. Those manufacturer and game company suggestion is to ask you buy more expensive/latest phone to play, and blame on your outdated and low end phone, and your pocket.

Then, these game you mention are not really designed for such low end hardware.
It is normal you get hang/freeze.
Get a proper smartphone with at least SD845 processor, or buy gaming phone for the heavy gaming purpose.

Here is the link:
https://www.xda-developers.com/asus-zenfone-max-pro-m1-google-camera/

And this is hassle free process as Asus has given enthusiast this option to toggle on just by using fastboot method and without going through rooting or warranty void so you don't have to worry about anything, just follow the guide.

Not recommended to buy in 2020, this phone is getting worse for long term use. Automatically restart about 3 times a day, when you play games lile CODM, PUBGM, MLBB, you'll gets a hang/freeze and then restart automatically, that happens in my 6/64 variant.
