Design

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is build of metal at the back and plastic at the top and bottom for better cellular reception. The smartphone feels elegant and sturdy when it is held. While many similarly priced smartphones have a prominent camera bulge but this one from Asus is free from it. The metal chassis looks premium and appealing. The rear panel has a vertical dual-camera arrangement at its top left corner and a fingerprint sensor at an easy-to-access position. The front of the device is dominated by the 2.5D curved glass layered on top of the FHD+ FullView display. There is a selfie camera, earpiece and flash above the display.The volume rockers and power button sit on the right edge of the smartphone, while the triple card slot is positioned at the left edge. The speaker unit, USB 2.0 port and a microphone sit at the bottom.

 

Display

The smartphone’s window to the world is a 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The contrast ratio of this screen stands at 1500:1, which lets it display deeper color tones.It is bright enough and is visible even in direct sunlightMoreover, the display has excellent viewing angles.It comes across as more vibrant than the display on its top competitor, the Redmi Note 5 Pro but it does not comes with a gorilla glass at the front unlike the redmi note 5 pro.

Performance

The performance is top bracket for this price range with the modern Snapdragon 636 chipset.It tackled everything we threw at it – from basic day-to-day use such as browsing the Web and using social media applications, to intensive workloads – without any problems. and with 6GB of RAM  the performance in games is better than the lower variants of the Max Pro M1   

 

I played PUBG and Asphalt 9 and found the device to give a decent performance without too much loading time and any noticeable lag.But the device does heat up even playing for 10 minutes.  

 

Battery

 

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 takes over its competitors in the battery department. The smartphone employs a juicy 5000mAh battery making it unique in its price point. Interestingly, the capacious battery doesn’t add to the weight or thickness of the smartphone. During my usage, the battery lasted over a day without any issues even after handling intense tasks such as gaming.

 

Camera

The handset features 16MP and 5MP sensors at the back, which takes vibrant and detailed shots in well-lit scenarios with decent bokeh effects too – it is significantly improved over the lower variants of the M1 Pro – images are sharper, brighter and even the colors look a bit more vibrant.Here are some of the sample shorts.

 

It features a 16MP front camera with a  soft LED flash which takes good images and it can also take portrait selfies which came out to be decent.

 

The phone has the usual stock camera UI which looks plain and lacks several features.I wish the company brought the camera app from Zen UI.

 

Software

Zenfone Max Pro M1 brings a transformation running on stock Android. The company has ditched the much-criticized Zen UI in favor of stock Android 8.1 Oreo. It will definitely please all the stock Android fans. The interface is clean and works without any glitches. The device also supports Face Unlock which works fine.

 

Pricing

Here is the pricing for all the variants of the zenfone max pro m1

Final thoughts

The smartphone offers a great value for money. It comes with all the necessary goodies such as a vibrant display, a capable camera, a capacious battery and uncompromising connectivity all without a steep increase in the price.I would strongly recommend you to go with the 6gb variant if you are planning to get this phone.
