The Zenfone Max ASUS delivers wonderful life with his huge 5000 mAh battery. Can the cheap Phablet in the test in the other disciplines convince?
The Taiwanese manufacturer of ASUS brings in regularly interesting smartphones and tablets on the market. Also the Zenfone Max incurred currently for the test bears his name completely right: the Phablet has a gigantic 5000 mAh battery under the hood and to set new time records. No wonder that we have – tested the Wuchtbrumme through its paces not only in relation to the endurance.
Fine look, bright display
All respect, not looking at absolutely its price of only 249 EUR Zenfone Max. So is the large, available in black and white Phablet with a scratch-resistant front made of Gorilla glass 4, an elegant metal frame, as well as a removable plastic cover at the back with high-grip grain and fine leather look. Not bad!
Two fully functional LTE SIM slots and a memory card slot for micro-SD cards are hiding under the hood. The Zenfone Max is properly done and well in the hand of the user. The combination of large battery, metal and glass also ensures abundant Bacon on the Phablet hips, because with a weight of 202 grams, it is heavyweight in the category.
The 5.5-inch display, a somewhat ambivalent impression: the resolution is 720 x 1280 pixel low – especially considering the size of the display. As a result, Content appear less brilliant. Kudos earns the display contrast, brightness: with a beam force measured by connect laboratory of 440 cd/m2 that is still legible even on sunny days Zenfone Max.
Everything inside, everything on it!
A Qualcomm Snapdragon-410 processor ensures the drive. He goes by the name of MSM8916 and provides performance fleet for the daily use cases in the combination of 1.2 GHz of faster quad-core CPU and 2 GB memory. Gamers and Multitasker will expect more from her Phablet of course at this point, but similarly equipped models wear also a different price tag. When the storage is ASUS generous and are more than 10 GB of available user memory, a micro-SD memory slot Zenfone Max and after registration with 5 GB of free online storage on the way.
In addition, the Asus with quad-band GSM and UMTS and LTE cat 4, and HSPA + has the major mobile communication standards on board. As a special feature, both slots of the dual-SIM model rule dealing with LTE, which is otherwise very rare. Bluetooth and simple b/g/n WLAN complete the connectivity equipment.
The remaining equipment can convince. Especially the 13-megapixel camera a very strong impression in good light conditions and delivers good picture quality with its laser auto focus. The features are abundant and offer not only a quick start function, but also the same 19 different modes, including programs for HDR and depth of field.
The missing included headset compensated the Zenfone Max with a USB-On-the-go-adapter. With this, not only USB memory on the ASUS can be connected, but also a power Bank function allows the adapter to charge about other devices about the huge battery. Really clever!
Zen UI offers great opportunities
On the outdated Android version 5.0.2, Asus has its own user interface called ZenUI. Currently, there are no interface that provides deeper possibilities of design and arrangement of the individual elements than the ASUS. Even the homemade copies of Samsung and LG pale in comparison. Whether the user actually needs this setting depth, he must decide at the end itself; at least the Zenfone Max offers all options. Even who leaves everything so as it appears after start-up, is intuitive to use and pretty-to-looking user interface.
The new endurance reference
A class of its own founded the Zenfone Max endurance measurements in our own laboratory. The ASUS Phablet uses the giant battery capacity of 5000 mAh skilfully made and returns in the practical use of mix with 12:58 hours a new reference value. This means a head start on the next placed endurance specialists of say and write 2:21 hours – madness! The talk time is also rank at absolute top level, should be also clear: 31:31 hours in the GSM and 13:35 hours in the UMTS usage should also designated Permanent telephones on chat keep.
Not only the endurance this impressive Zenfone Max, also the remaining laboratory values can be seen: the important results of the high-frequency measurements – so the transmission and reception properties – as well as the acoustic performance on the phone are top.
Thus it is clear: ASUS has landed a direct hit. The Zenfone Max represents not only a new endurance record, but does a superb job as Phablet for relatively little money, and earned a big recommendation. Price-conscious users are here exactly at the right place.
