Quick Review of Asus Zenfone 3 Max

Asus Zenfone 3 Max has an average display. This is because of the HD resolution in 5.2 inches screen. If it would be a full HD resolution, then the sharpness and clarity would be more pleasant. CPU and GPU of this smartphone are also average mid-level performers.

The 2GB RAM variant is not so good in these days. Most of the mid-level smartphone released in last few months carrying a 3GB RAM. So, going with the 3GB RAM variant is the wise move. The rear camera is close to perfect mid-level camera. The front camera won’t satisfy many selfie lovers. The Battery is really mind blowing with 4130mAh capacity.
