And you shouldn't expect a budget device to perform as a flagship.
During the last 8 years I've used Samsung, LG, Asus, HTC, Nokia, Sony (before and after the Ericsson split). And I'd recommend Asus and LG. They suit me better.

I reported these issues and they fixed autofocus issue but camera quality turned into shit it now takes noisy photos in artificial light and about battery life, I am now getting 4-5 hrs SOT with medium usage previously I was getting 7-8 hrs with heavy usage. Currently, I am so fed up with this update I decided to visit Asus service center and downgrade my phone to Marshmallow.

Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 with same exact SoC as my phone will receive Nougat. And as far as I know, Nougat can be the last major update to my Zenfone Max if ever, so why not let it happen if it's possible?

Intel may have stopped giving support, but then that means other devices in their Zenfone 2 lineup that uses a SoC that is still compatible with Nougat, should receive Nougat as their last major update at least.

And before you tell me to shut up, I want you to know that I already know about this. It's a matter of fact that the Zenfone 2 was their main flagship during its time, so I was just expecting at least a flagship treatment to it with at least 2 major updates.
I also suspected that the SoC of the phone is no longer compatible with Nougat, so I had a thought that maybe the non-Intel Zenfone 2 devices would get the update, yet they didn't.

Think before you blame, huh? I have thought about this several times already, and only now did I ask something about it. But after reading your first comment, I can see some bias of you with Asus.

AnonD-468012, 30 Dec 2017The fact is Intel has stop working for SoC in 2015 and compabili... moreI think Xperia M5 didn't get and updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in my perspective , was when Xperia M5 was launched , it was no longer using Snapdragon what Xperia M used to , but rather Helio X10 MT6795 , a flagship Mediatek chipsets at that time , nevertheless , Xperia M series got climbed on its status from true mid-range to super mid-range . And we all already known when a devices using a Mediatek chipset . Mediatek will charges any companies to get their source codes when updating their phones to another OS . Yes , Helio X10 does compatible with Nougat . But most phones with MTK , even with MTK's flagship chipsets on OEM's flagships / super-mid-range , will rarely get 2 major updates (Nokia 3 could be the first phone to break this tradition) .

And once again in my view , Sony doesn't want to upgrade the M5 to 7.0 was 3 reasons : 1.) It will make unfair decisions with the Xperia C5 Ultra , M4 Aqua and C4 owners who didn't get more than 6.0 MM as M series still considered as mid-range despite being a super one . And even M4A could updated the same way as M5 , it will made unpleasing decision with 2015 C series owner (including myself) .
2.) When Android 7.0 lists out , Sony already paid themselves source codes of Xperia XA and XA Ultra who have Helio P10 which costs them a quite one . With that , Sony thinks if they decided to do the same with Xperia M5 , it will costs them more to paid it out . So decided to left it out with last update : September 1 2016 security patch .
3.) At that when Sony was starting to get fast on update since mid-2016 after they got a big hard-punches after their Z3 failed to get Nougat , Sony was first trying to be focusing on their flagships first by delivering timely-security-patches and fast major update . Mid-rangers was after it . Since then , after flagships tasks was done properly , then their mid-rangers got the similar treatment with their flagships . Sadly , Xperia M5 , C5U , M4A and C4 didn't get "the mid-rangers got the same treatment with flagships" jargon as it was starting on 2017 when X , Xc , XA and XAU get timely-updates after their XZ and XP updated . Meanwhile those 4 was Sony's older mid-rangers and it was too late to do it , and it will made newer Sony Xperia owner feel unpleasing . {Remember those all are my view . Could be correct , could be not]
