This is the complete, Asus Zenfone Max Pro Review article. In this particular article for Asus Zenfone Max Pro, I will let you know everything about this amazing smartphone.
So starting with its build quality, the phone is completely built of metallic body except those antenna bend, which is made of plastic material for better and healthy network connection and I must say, there is something really great in the connectivity of Zenfone max pro because the device was able to have networks at those places where my other devices were showing 0% of network and that makes that plastic build antenna bends totally acceptable. So, on the back panel, you will get to see, Dual Rear camera, A fingerprint scanner, and Asus Branding. The phone is available in 3 different colors of – Black, and Grey. The build of Asus Zenfone Max Pro is premium and feels like a good device in hands. If we talk about durability, it can survive some backdrop easily but I don’t know about front drop because Asus has not revealed any information regarding display protection.
Design –If we talk about the design, it is really going to be everyone’s personal choice. Like, we have done some voting poles over different social medias and the results were full of dillema, itiwas 49% negative and 50% positive.
Talking about in hand design of Asus zenfone max pro, which surely looks good and premium. When I hold Zenfone Max Pro, it feels like am holding a premium device because of its metallic build. For the reference, mobile has just 8.5mm thickness and 180 grams of weight which makes this phone more durable and comfortable while using.
Display –Display is most important part of Asus Zenfone Max Pro Review. The Device has a 5.99inch Full HD+ display with infinity screen of 18:9 with the resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. The device has just 77% screen to body ratio, which adds some more flavor to it’s beautiful and futuristic design. Its display has, Tru Pallet Pixel processing technology, which simply enhances the quality of display and believes me guys the display of Zenfone max pro is one of the best features. There is no color saturation in the device. if you tilt the device you will not find any kind of color saturation. which is simply great at the price point of 11,000 you are getting a great display, with awesome touch response, whereas I have noticed some of the multi-touch lag in the device after the last update so deer Asus please fix this issue very soon.
Now let’s talk about the automatic brightness and here is the thing where device struggles, like I have noticed that its auto brightness feature is not so accurate and fast in comparison to other devices, but most of the time I prefer to set my display brightness manually so I could find it any actual problem at all. Also, the display is 100% visible under the sunlight or bright sunny day. So overall I would rate the display of Asus zenfone max pro 9.5 out of 10 considering its price point. Also, I would like to include that I have used the device in both daylight and dark lighting conditions and I found it really comfortable because I was able to use the device for 4-5 hours without having any problem in eyes. Which simply makes this device perfect for gaming and entertainment purpose.
Performance –No doubt Asus zenfone max pro is king of all the budget smartphones in terms of performance. Zenfone max pro is coming with 3 different variants of 3GB with 32GB internal storage and 4GB and 6GB with same 64 GB internal storage. I have the 3GB RAM variant and am using this smartphone from last 15 days and believe me guys am already in love with its performance talking about on paper specification of Asus zenfone, it has Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Chipset with 1.8Ghz CPU and Adreno 509 GPU and at the price point of 11,000 it’s more insane.
Asus is trying its best to provide a cutting-edge technology at a very reasonable price. Okay let’s talk about my experience with the phone since I have already done a gaming review of Asus zenfone max pro so you could check that video for your reference other things like the heating issue, so this device has 0% heating issue yes mark my words 0%. Like when I was testing the device I have played some high end games, using my different social media platforms and many other things like taking pictures Web surfing and guess what, I have not found any kind of heating issue, the temperature of device increased up to 2-3°c but that thing is really negligible and you are not going to notice that. This thing is happening because the zenfone is based on Snapdragon 636 which has 14nano meter process technology which is based on 8cores of Cortex CPU. Still, I think the performance will be enhanced more after some more OTA updates.
Battery– So, now let’s talk about the battery, no doubt this phone have not any competitor in terms of battery. Asus zenfone max pro is featuring 5000 mAh battery which is another best feature of this device. Asus had done something really great this time like they are giving 5000 mAh battery with this so slim and stylish smartphone also the weight of smartphone is just 180 grams.
Talking about the charging times, the phone takes almost 1hours and 45mins to fully charge your battery. And it gives huge 10hrs of the screen on time which means you can use smartphone up to 2 days very easily. There is not any fast charging support for the smartphone. When I was charging the phone, I noticed that smartphone was heating a little bit.

Camera –Now, the camera is second most important part of Asus Zenfone Max Pro Review. On the rear side, zenfone is featuring dual rear camera of 13+5 MP, with f2.2 aperture and 1.4micron pixels, and the front camera is featuring 8MP sensor with f2.2 aperture. So, talking about the camera quality, the Dual rear camera takes some of the great quality pictures, with lots of details. Colour reproduction seems also good and the portrait mode also doing a great job.
Still, I think the camera is not fully optimized in zenfone max pro, some OTA updates needed here. Talking about the portrait mode and the best part of its portrait mode is, the phone doesn’t show any kind of distance limitations while you are clicking pictures with portrait mode, the edge detection of portrait is decent when the object is at a good distance while when you try to take portrait of object near to you, it gives some of the great results. Like you can see in this camera sample.
Now let’s talk about the selfie camera, its featuring beautification mode, HDR mode and portrait mode in the selfie camera. Talking about the portrait mode, because it’s becoming a trend in the smartphone camera and the best part of Asus zenfone max pro selfie camera is it’s featuring Portrait mode. So the portrait mode in the selfie camera is not doing its job at all, the edge detection is good when you are taking Selfie of your own but when you will take group Selfie, the portrait mode will struggle and result will be not satisfying. Normally it takes the good selfies in daylighting condition but low or indoor lighting selfie results are not good. Okay now let’s talk about some cons of the camera, the phone has slow autofocusing, and when I try to capture white of shiny object it struggles a lot. Also, the selfie camera of Zenfone max pro is decent and I can’t suggest this phone to all the selfie lovers but if selfie camera doesn’t matter a lot to you, then this phone is the best pick for you. Selfie camera is featuring portrait mode and results from this portrait mode is not good and it needs lots of improvement.
Conclusion – Asus Zenfone Max Pro is featuring Snapdragon 636 with 5000mah battery and latest android 8.1 with pure stock User interface also you will get to see regular updates up to 2 years. I mean this phone has all the killer features except the selfie camera. So the at end of the video I would say, Asus Zenfone max pro is totally worth and best budget smartphone for all the gamers, performance freaks and updates and stock Android lovers. So, that’s it for the Asus Zenfone Max Pro Review.
