Asus Zenfone Max review: Tanking up

30 May, 2016
It may not be the fastest ride – and it sure ain’t the hottest – but it comes with a full tank and mileage to spare. 5,000 milliamp-hours... That’s more juice than many tablets get and enough to charge 3 iPhone 6’s. The Asus Zenfone Max is no joke when it gets to battery backup. But it’s a smartphone in its own right - an affordable midranger at that.

    I have used this phone since January 2016, it's almost 5 years old now. It was quite a good experience. Towards the latter half of 2019 it lost some sensitivity in the touch screen and in early 2020 almost 70% of the screen was no longer sensitive. I think I was just unlucky as I have friends who had the phone just as long but don't have the same problems. If everything was still working the phone still could be used for a few more years if you are only using whatsapp, insta and just using normal calls and messages. It had served me well throughout the years and now finally it is time to upgrade.

      Good strong phone I brought 2016 still using it. basic phone for general use you can't expect much like modern phone. Due to technology advancement it will not support the latest app I mean it work but very slow we lost our coolness. phone software support only 2-4 yrs after that it become slow with new update.It has done its duty its time to say Goodbye.

Yours may still be working, so I suggest you to turn the proximity sensor off during phone calls so that your screen won't go black throughout.

              I only removed mine because in Messenger, I can't end voice calls and video chats that my whole screen is pure black. Such build quality tbh.

                              One thing. I have bought Asus Zenfone 2 and a very bad experience that it's 2nd slot does not have Data connection. I am simply cheated. Because during online purchase through Flip cart nowhere it was mentioned about above drawback. I want to know Asus Zenfone Max's both the slot support 4GLTE Data connection or not?

                                      guys, do you know how to slow down its shutter speed of up to 32s running in Lollipop version. Marshmallow supports the shutter speed but lollipop doesn't. I've downgraded my device because marshmallow has a lot of bugs like the camera will crash if you'll going to burst mode. or do you know another way of doing the laser light effects on camera? thanks for the help :)
