ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 review: A big battery budget beauty

Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 review

 

Is it really the ‘people's' phone?

5000mAh ; Snapdragon 660 processor at this price ; Gorilla Glass 6 segment first ; Stock Android ; Great audio

No USB Type C ; No Fast Charging

If you have ₹12,999 for a phone, the Max Pro M2 is the one to spend it on

Test Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2: le smartphone puissant qui ne vous lâchera pas en cours de soirée

 

Pour résister à l'incroyable déferlante des smartphones chinois, Asus a peut-être trouvé la bonne formule avec ses ZenFone Max : des téléphones à la fois puissants et abordables, faciles à utiliser et surtout, d'une très grande autonomie.

L'excellente autonomie ; La réactivité sans faille

La faible qualité des photos en basse lumière ; Pas de prise USB-C

Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M2) Smartphone Hands-On-Bericht

 

Mittelklasse-Handy mit hohen Ansprüchen. Das Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M2) kam letzten Monat zeitgleich mit dem Max (M2) auf den indischen Markt und ersetzt das unglaublich beliebte ZenFone Max Pro (M1). Das Max Pro (M2) macht vieles richtig und richtet...

Klasse Design ; Bleibt bei Benutzung relativ kühl ; Lebhaftes Display mit Corning Gorilla Glass 6 ; Recht genaues GPS ; Haupkamera macht eine gute Figur ; Widevine-CDM-L1-Unterstützung ; Fingerabdrucksensor und Gesichtserkennung reagieren schnell ;...

Untertaktetes Snapdragon 660 SoC ; Drosseln unter Last ; Berührungserkennung nicht immer präzise ; Hauptkamera für Bilder im Dunklen nicht gut eingestellt ; Frontkamera verbesserungswürdig ; In manchen Fällen höherer Energieverbrauch ; Kein Schnellladen

Das ZenFone Max Pro (M2) ist beim Autor nun seit ungefähr einem Monat als Alltagsgerät im Einsatz und das Handy ist den meisten Erwartungen gerecht geworden. Das Pseudoglasdesign des Handys ist etwas, das man in dieser Preisklasse eher selten findet...
