Stunning DESIGN and DISPLAY!
The design is one of the high points of this device. The phone sports a metal shell, except for the plastic top and bottom parts for antennas. I love the way the device feels in hand due to rounding corners on the back and because it is a rather small phone. It has a 5.2” display, which only has 720p resolution. Still, it is a moderately good LCD panel, and it should be enough for most users. The only shortcoming is that it could have a slightly better sunlight clarity. The phone has a notification LED light, which sits next to the 5MP selfie shooter. However, we only have the on-screen navigation buttons that cannot be customised. Well, at least you can press the multitasking button to take a screenshot.
Highlight Real – Battery!
One notable feature which the ASUS Zenfone 3S Max holds is the massive 5,000mAh battery for a long-lasting uptime. The battery is likely, the biggest feature on the Zenfone 3S Max and it goes even beyond that, as the smartphone comes with support for reverse charging. Even with continuous YouTube video viewing, surfing and browsing, listening to music, notifications, the phone lasted close to one and a half days, which is considered quite adequate for its users.
Asus ZenFone 3S Max features a Fingerprint Scanner on the rear that prevents others from accessing yours to private data. The fingerprint sensor is very active and reliable and can unlock the phone in just 0.3 seconds. You can add up to 5 Fingers fingerprints for complete convenience.
Asus delivers the Zenfone 3S Max off an interesting device that can safely hold its own in the meantime highly competitive premium midrange segment. On raw performance, is lack killer touch, but on the other hand, it deals more efficiently with its battery. Besides, it works very smoothly and constant everyday use, even for those who expect more from this smartphone and occasionally plays a game. An excellent asset for the Zenfone 3S Max is Battery, no doubt. However, camera, which comes out of the corner very surprising for a device in this price range. For that reason alone, this smartphone has earned its place in the market.
