Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Review: A value for money budget smartphone that can take the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro head-on


But for a phone that is priced at Rs 12,999 for the variant we had for review, there just is no beating the Asus ZenFone Max Pro in terms of overall value.

Going by specifications, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 ticked all the boxes to make for a worthy competitor to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro as well as the Honor 9 Lite. Well, it does not beat the Honor 9 Lite in terms of sheer looks, neither does it give...

Asus launches Zenfone Max Pro M1 smartphone in India for about $165 and up


The latest smartphone from Asus seems to strike a nice balance between price and specs. It's called the , and along with a really long name, the phone has a big screen, a big battery, a reasonably speedy processor, dual cameras, and at least 3GB of RAM.

For now, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an India-exclusive. But it’s possible Asus could decide to sell the phone in other markets in the future.

Test Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 : ses performances ne vous décevront pas


Avec ce nouveau Zenfone, Asus vient chasser sur les terres des smartphones chinois avec les mêmes arguments. Un prix très abordable et des performances qui sortent du lot.

L'excellente autonomie ; La réactivité du système ; Le bel écran Full HD+

Les photos décevantes en basse lumière ; La lenteur de la recharge

Test Asus ZenFone 4 Max ZC554KL Smartphone


Laufzeit-Künstler. Das ZenFone 4 Max soll maximale Akkulaufzeit mit Fotoqualitäten verbinden. Dafür kommt es mit einer Dual-Kamera an der Rückseite und sogar einer Weitwinkel-Linse. Das hier allerdings nicht alles roségold ist, was glänzt, das müssen...

Sehr lange Akkulaufzeiten ; Kaum Erwärmung ; Viele Bedienmöglichkeiten ; Umfangreiche Software ; Topaktuelle Sicherheitspatches beim Test ; USB-OTG ; Eigener Slot für microSD-Karte ; Ordentlicher Lautsprecher ; Viel Zubehör ; Schneller microSD-Zugriff

Lahmes WLAN ohne 5-GHz-Band ; Wenige LTE-Bänder ; Recht hoher Energieverbrauch ; Mäßig heller Bildschirm ; Rotstich bei Fotoaufnahmen ; Weitwinkellinse verzerrt an den Rändern ; Nur 720p-Bildschirm ; Gehäuse etwas druckempfindlich

Die lange Akkulaufzeit bringt dem Asus ZenFone 4 viele Sympathien: Nur selten muss es mal an die Steckdose und ist dann auch recht schnell wieder geladen. Dazu ist es nicht übermäßig schwer oder klobig. Die Kamera als zweites Highlight holt einen dann...
