ASUS ZenFone Max M1 Review – Battery King?
Source: Manila Shaker English EN→zh-CN
Unfortunately, this new ASUS ZenFone Max M1 did not meet our expectations, especially in the battery department. ASUS claims it to be a battery king but didn’t deliver its promise of long battery life. On the bright side, it was able to take great selfies even in low lighting conditions. It also has decent display despite its low resolution, and can play games smoothly. With its PHP 8,995 price tag, is this smartphone worth it? If you ask us, it could’ve been better if they toned-down the price a little bit more since numerous smartphones from other brands offers greater performance in this price range..But it’s till up for you to decide. Will you get yourself a new Asus ZenFone Max M1? Or if you already have one, did you encounter the same difficulties like we did? Comment down below!

80% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Review: A value for money budget smartphone that can take the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro head-on
Source: Tech2 English EN→zh-CN
In the end, the choice is quite simple, if you are looking for a Redmi Note 5 Pro alternative for whatever reason, the ZenFone Pro Max M1 definitely does come recommended. If you still want a phone with the best looks under Rs 15,000, the Honor 9 Lite is still your pick. If you're looking for a good performer and a phone with long-lasting battery, the Pro Max M1 is the one to go for under Rs 15,000.

ASUS ZenFone Max M1 Review

The Zenfone Max M1 is yet another device that seems to fall short in delivering on its promises. The phone could’ve easily been a strong contender in the budget segment if not for its disappointing battery. Thankfully, it has some redeeming qualities such as a respectable screen, a good performance, and an acceptable set of cameras. Add that to the fact that even though it is supposed to be a toned-down version of the Max Plus M1, it has better overall performance.

Priced at Rs 10,999 for the base 3GB RAM variant, the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1 beats the competition with Stock Android, 2 major promised updates, better battery life and great performance. Probably the only downside is the camera performance which could be improved with future updates.

70% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Review: Is it actually a Redmi Note 5 Pro killer?
Source: The Indian Express English EN→zh-CN
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is undoubtedly good value-for-money, starting at Rs 10,999 for 3GB RAM and 32GB storage and going all the way up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage for Rs 12,999. Asus has also announced an upcoming 6GB RAM variant that’s going to cost Rs 14,999. Asus has got a lot of things right this time around. It has got a good-quality display, better processor, bigger battery and stock Android experience. But it also has its shortcomings such as lack of Corning Glass Protection and oleophobic coating to the display, below par camera and battery experience, which makes us feel that Asus seems to have missed a great opportunity.

ASUS has almost made its way to acquire the budget segment leaving the well-known budget devices like Xiaomi Remdi Note 5 behind in performance. If we talk about its internals, the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 sports a Snapdragon 636 SoC which is faster than that of several phones including the Motorola Moto X4, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Honor 7X, and Honor 9 Lite.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M1) Review: A winning prospect
Source: The Mobile Indian English EN→zh-CN
For final thoughts, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is one promising device as it comes loaded with some impressive specs sheet and the performance is up to the mark. The same processor is available in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, but it cost you Rs 14,999 for the 4GB of RAM. The significant change is in the software and the stock Android experience could be a gamechanger for Asus only if it delivers timely updates, which it has promised incidentally. All in all, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro makes a compelling pitch to try the brand if you haven't done it before.

80% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 review: A star is born
Source: Gadget Show English EN→zh-CN
The strengths of the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 lie with its massive 5000mAh battery and stock Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. With a little better design and camera performance, the handset would truly have been a complete package to break the monopoly of the Xiaomi Redmi Note series in the budget segment. Stopping the Xiaomi juggernaut will require more than this from Asus. Having said that, the handset will pose a serious threat to the Note 5 series and surely gets our stamp of approval.

90% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English EN→zh-CN
Asus is going to get a lot of attention because of the pricing of the Zenfone Max Pro M1, and it's positioning itself squarely as a Xiaomi killer. The specifications match those of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but there are a few extra perks such as the bigger battery, dedicated microSD slot, and front flash. However, the prices are more in line with those of the Redmi Note 5, which is one rung lower in Xiaomi's lineup. We also now know what the Moto G6 lineup will be like, and it seems that there won't be any challenge from that corner in terms of specifications, at least.

The Asus Zenfone Max Pro can take on the best in the market with ease. Like most Asus phones, the spec-sheet is maxed out with the best mid-range hardware. That includes latest stock Android and a 5,000mAh battery, two features which solve the biggest pain points people tend to have when making a purchase at that price range. The phone even manages to take on the formidable Redmi Note 5 Pro, save for the imaging prowess, but the pros easily outweigh the cons. In all, it’s always good to have a choice of clean stock UI without compromising on the performance.
