Inside the phone
we already know the hardware inside, but what can we crack open? only the back case, if we crack open the back case we can see two micro sim slots in right and a micro SD card slot which is expandable upto 64GB, both the sim slots support 4G sims both are standby, and if we look into the most important part of the device that is battery, Asus Zenfone Max is rocking a 5000mAH battery, claimingly runs for 3 days!(which is true) to put this battery to test they had switched on the phone since it was shipped to me, and surprisingly the phone was turned on until i opened the box!
battery performance is really incredible, the phone can also be used as a power pack to other devices which is incredible,
What do you get with the Asus Zenfone Max
Inside the box you will be getting, the phone, charger brick, usb to micro usb cable for charging and data transfer, and a OTG cable to use your phone as a power bank! and few manuals based on your region
i felt the phone was quite a good experience, the hashtag #liveunplugged really worked, I never had to charge it once a day or so which is in case for other phones, I never even had to carry those bulky power banks around, camera is pretty good at the price point, marshmallow runs smooth on the device, the metal frame makes it look premium and the overall leather feel and size makes it pretty comfortable to use.
