Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 6GB Review and Pros Cons:

Asus has partnered with Flipkart to launch exclusive smartphones for next 3 years. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the first smartphone to be launched under the partnership. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has specs similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro which has been doing very well in the Indian market. Let's take a look at the brief review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

Below is an overview of Zenfone Max Pro 6GB RAM variant. If you are interested to know more about this phone take a look at our in-depth review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a 5.99-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. The display has 450 nits brightness and is very colourful and vivid. The viewing angles are good as well. The display is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look. Asus has reduced the bezels on the top and bottom so the overall size of the phone is still same as a 5.5-inch device. The design is bit boring though. You get metal unibody design so nothing special or new here. The phone weighs 180 grams which is surprising considering the massive 5000 mah battery it carries. Overall, the phone feels good in the hand. 

Let's talk about the battery which is the USP of this device. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a large 5000 mah battery which will provide a battery backup of 2 to 3 days on a single charge. If you hate charging your phone every day then you are going to love Max Pro M1. Asus claims that it can run Youtube for 20 hours. The phone comes with a 10-watt charger and it charging time is expected to be little less than 3 hours. The charging time is decent considering the large battery size.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a dual 16MP + 5MP rear camera with a 1.12-micron pixel size for better low light performance. The camera performance is good under daylight outdoor conditions. The pictures look colorful with a good amount of details. The camera can take portrait mode pictures as well. In our initial tests, the bokeh effect looked good with proper edge detection. The rear camera can also record 4K videos. Asus claims that this is the best camera in class. 

The selfie camera on the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is a 16MP shooter with a LED flash. The front camera is a great performer in both indoor and outdoor lighting. 

The chipset inside the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is Snapdragon 636 which was launched globally with Redmi Note 5 Pro. The SD636 chipset is very powerful and can handle any task you throw at it. Using multiple apps and games is going to be a breeze. Thanks to the powerful chipset, Zenfone Max Pro M1 scores around 116000 on the Antutu Benchmarks which is a bit higher than the score of Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Asus is taking audio quality very seriously as well. There is a Maxxbox which amplifies the sound by 2X. For audio via 3.5 mm jack, Asus has added an NXP audio chipset which improves the sound quality. Sound quality is usually not given importance in the mid-range devices so it is good to see Asus doing something different here to improve the user experience.

On Software side, you get pure Android Oreo on Zenfone Max Pro M1. This is a great step from Asus. There is almost no bloatware on the device. Asus promises to provide next 2 big Android updates as well. So you will get Android P and Android Q

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in 2 variants: 32GB storage and 3GB RAM variant would cost your Rs. 10999 and 64GB - 4GB variant will cost you 12999 only. This is excellent pricing from Asus. Asus has used LPDDR4X RAM which should improve the overall experience. If you are a heavy user then go for the 4GB RAM variant as the extra 1 gig of RAM should help a lot in multi-tasking. The MicroSD slot is dedicated so you can use 2 sim cards with a MicroSD card. The 6GB RAM variant comes with better front and back camera setup and is priced at 14999.

Overall, we think Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an impressive device. It comes with the latest display, powerful chipset, decent cameras, pure Android. Multitasking is great and the battery lasts for 2 days. It is clearly one of the best phones in this price range.
