ASUS ZENFONE MAX PLUS REVIEW


For sure, Zenfone enthusiasts know that the ZenFone Max Plus has been launched by Asus Philippines this year. Hailed as the “Battery King” with its 4130 mAh battery life feature and with 18:9 full view FHD+ display, — I told myself that this one is such an amazing phone!

So a few days before November ends, I finally got one. 



Packed with so many great features, can't help but gush over the phone.


Pero, okay nga ba talaga sya?

Before anything else, let's unbox the Asus Zenfone Plus.

UNBOXING ASUS Zenfone Max Plus
Complete with an instruction manual which will serve as your guide for all the things that you need to know about the ASUS Zenfone Max Plus, here are the complete items that you will see upon opening the box of your smartphone.


You'll be able to find a set of earphones, a USB cable, a wall plug, a jelly case and a male micro USB to female USB dongle.


The fingerprint scanner is at the back of the ASUS Zenfone Max Plus. The volume rockers and power button are on the right side, while the dual-SIM and microSD card slot tray is at the left side of the phone.



My first impression? 
Same as my recent Zenfone unit, it's a phone to love. compact, sleek and easy to use, which when you have tried using it— it's something you wouldn't mind carrying around. 

THE REVIEW + SAMPLE PHOTOS

So here's sharing with you here what I found about the phone. 

Natural beauty is always on display with the #ZenFoneMaxPlus - featuring a full view display and a powerful battery that can last for days.

BATTERY
  • With the #ZenFoneMaxPlus you will never have to worry about losing battery while traveling!


The last time I charged it was last Friday, December 14— and today is Monday ~ so be the judge.  

  • You might want to take note that standby time can take up to 26 days and up to 21hours Wi-Fi browsing! 
  • When on vacation, you can get the best out of your vacation without any hassle with the #BatteryKing! 

  • Oh and if you'll ask me, it's the right phone for those who love to binge-watch while on the go — like me! 
  • Unlike most smartphones, the ASUS Zenfone Max Plus’ 4,130mAh is perfect for heavy users. It is also the first Battery King with Full-view FHD.

PERFORMANCE

When I feel tired from doing my usual errands, I usually take a break and play games on my mobile phone. The games I usually play are the simple ones lang like candy crush lang and Tetris, and Mobile Legends once in a while ~ pampalipas oras. haha! 


My husband, on the other hand, is a gamer. Yup, buhay na buhay ang pagka-gamer sa dugo nya. haha! 

So I tested out the Battery King kung hanggang saan at tatagal ba.



And so far,  no experience of any lag on my phone. Ang saya!

Oh and I need to share this to you:  Switching between apps or multitasking (if that's what you call it) isn’t a problem as well because of its 4GB RAM.

FACE RECOGNITION
Its facial recognition feature is so helpful each time I want to unlock my phone faster.



REVERSE CHARGING
If you are like me who has a main phone and an extra phone with you always, isn't it too tiring to bring a powerbank? 

What if I tell you that you don't need to bring one!



Coz' it's no longer a hassle with ASUS Zenfone Max Plus since it can also act as a powerbank when your other phone needs an extra juice. It includes a male micro USB to female USB dongle in the package.
