After a month of using the Asus Zenfone 3 Max 5.5 as my primary phone, I came up with 4 reasons why you should consider buying it. Today, choosing your smartphone is very crucial. There are a lot of options for you to consider. Your smartphone must fit your lifestyle and your needs. And if my 4 reasons is what you are looking for, then you should get yourself the Asus Zenfone 3 Max.
4. Premium aesthetic design.
If you want a phone that doesn’t look cheap, then Zenfone 3 Max is for you. I’ve been using my phone for a while, and when my friends and family saw it, they would usually ask, “What’s your phone? It looks expensive and elegant!” For about a month, I’ve got the same question and comment from more than 3 friends and family. And personally, I also think it looks classy. So, if you want a phone that looks classy but a reasonable price, then you should need to add Zenfone 3 Max to your options.
3. After-sales support.
Some brands don’t offer over-the-air (OTA) updates. Updates are very important, may it be security patches or software upgrades. Asus offers OTA updates. Just recently, they released the OTA update of Android 7.0 Nougat. With Asus Zenfone 3 Max, you don’t have to buy a new phone just to get the latest Android OS.
Everybody wants a decent camera for their phone. After all, this is the “selfie generation.” We take pictures of everything so it’s a must that our phone must have a pretty impressive rear and front camera. We take a lot of selfies, pictures of our food, travel, and just about anything. Asus Zenfone 3 Max didn’t disappoint me. Considering it’s price, it’s camera is actually pretty impressive. I was not disappointed with the performance of its camera. Below is the sample shots.
1. Battery life.
Of course, the battery life will be the number 1 reason why you should get the Asus Zenfone 3 Max. It packs 4100mAh with reverse charging capability. I am one of those persons who hates having to carry a powerbank all the time. Also, I think using a phone while it’s connected to the powerbank and you are on the go is such a hassle. With Zenfone 3 Max, I never had this problem. As a student and as blogger, I am out the whole day. I am proud to share that with Zenfone 3 Max, I could last a whole day outside, without having to charge.
For a smartphone that’s worth Php 10,995 (for 5.5 variant), its overall performance is actually pretty impressive. Overall, I highly recommend Asus Zenfone 3 Max.
