Reviews for the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 ZB631KL

ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 Smartphone Review
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
The Zenfone Max Pro M2’s great entertainment focused system with improved display technology and superb speaker system is unparalleled when compared to any smartphones in this price range. If you enjoy using your smartphone to watch movies or just to browse YouTube, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a good choice. In terms of performance, we found that the Zenfone Max Pro M2’s was slightly faster than the HONOR 10 Lite, but this does not justify the additional $S60 price tag. If you are willing to spend this extra money for a all-rounder in this price range, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 will be a good choice.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 review: Punching above its weight
Source: Android Authority English
Last year, Asus made a comeback in India. It had been a while since the company launched a smartphone there. Once a decent mid-segment player, the company lost the plot trying to compete with stiff competition from several Chinese players.

ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a good upgrade to the Max Pro M1 when is comes to performance and camera at an additional cost of Rs. 2000 compared to the predecessor. Even though this doesn’t have the same metal build, the design looks attractive. However, it misses out on the USB Type-C port and fast charging once again. If you are looking for a smartphone with good battery life and performance in the price range, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 at a starting price of Rs. 12999 is definitely a good choice. The phone is available exclusively from Flipkart.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M2) ZB631KL review
Source: GSM Arena English
You can probably tell by now that the ZenFone Max Pro M2 has a towering lead when it comes to battery size and as mentioned before, that is indeed its biggest feature. If battery life is all that matters to you, then the ZenFone Max Pro M2 is your best bet, and you won't be making any major compromises in other areas with it. However, if you want a better camera, or more powerful performance, or more feature-rich software experience, there are a lot of other choices out there, which are worth considering.

ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 review - A strong big battery budget-friendly smartphone that could've been better
Source: Tech Nave English
I honestly didn't want to be harsh on this phone but facts are facts. I personally think ASUS might have shot themselves in the foot for "rushing" this too soon (the predecessor was only released back in July 2018) due to competition which is understandable. If anything, the price tag itself is still a good reason to get the phone, but not so much for gaming purpose. Just my two cents.

80% Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M2) review: Excellent performer for its price
Source: The Indian Express English
There’s no doubt that Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M2) builds on the success of its earlier variant. The starting price is Rs 12,999 for the 3GB RAM option, though we had the 4GB RAM option for review. Asus is also offering a 6GB RAM variant at Rs 16,999 for those who are interested.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 review: A decent performer, but not for shutterbugs
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 14,999 for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 has more than cosmetic upgrades over predecessor Zenfone Max Pro M1. Except for camera performance, where it delivers better results than the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Realme 2 Pro but fails to match the output of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, the M2 beats most smartphones in its segment. However, the phone would turn out to be a complete package only if its imaging output is improved through future software upgrades.

83% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Review: A successor that’s spectacular
Source: Tech PP English
Still, at Rs 12,999 for 3 GB/ 32 GB, Rs 14,999 for 4 GB/ 64 GB and Rs 16,999 for the 6 GB/ 64 GB variants, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 is very competitively priced. However, it faces a lot of competition and some would say it does not feel as irresistible a deal as the M1 had (it started at Rs 10,999), especially considering that the Redmi Note 6 Pro starts at Rs 13,999 for the 4 GB/ 64 GB variant, and comes with better cameras and software. There are also the likes of the Realme 2 Pro, the Honor 8X and the Nokia 6.1 Plus which match it in terms of style quotient. The Pro M2 thus has a much tougher path to navigate than its predecessor did. That said, it is one of the best blends of style and substance we have seen at its price point. If the camera is not very critical for you, and you can put up with a slightly old flavor of Android (albeit a very clean one), this is, as they like to say in Hollywood, a contender.

All-New ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M2) Delivers Longer Battery Life, Unbeatable Performance and Enhanced Durability
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
The ZenFone Max Pro (M2) is the first ZenFone to use the eye-catching Wave finish — a dynamic optical finish exquisitely created using a glossy 16-layer coating — that looks beautiful from every angle, showing an ever-changing interplay of light and shade. The 3D-curved rear design is not only comfortable to hold, but also gives it a truly luxurious look, and even with all its new upgrades the phone is still superbly slim.

71% Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 has all the elements of a reliable, powerful mid-ranger. It's for those who want a steady performer that can both handle the daily tasks and heavy gaming and lasts long thanks to a massive 5,000mAh battery. It's also a good device to stream videos on. However, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 doesn't have the best camera on offer in that price range. It also has clean stock Android UI which may not ring well with fans of custom launchers like MIUI or ColorOS. Read the review below to find out how the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 square up against its rivals.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Review: Performance will not disappoint you!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is surely an upgrade to the Zenfone Max Pro M1. The smartphone comes loaded with a new design language and the performance is better as compared to its predecessor. The battery is impressive and the user interface is clean. The cameras could have been better and there is no option to hide the notch. Overall, if you looking to buy a new smartphone and your budget is around Rs 15,000 then this can be considered as a good option.

Source: Tech2 English
For a phone that starts at Rs 12,999, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is by far the most well-rounded smartphone you can get your hands on. Barring camera performance, where the Redmi Note 6 Pro beats it, the phone outclasses and outlasts every other phone under Rs 15,000, making it a great all-rounder with best in class battery life.

80% Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 review: Fast hardware, crazy good battery helps it compete with Redmi Note 6 Pro
Source: India Today English
I think the Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a fantastic phone. It's just that when compared to the likes of the Nokia 6.1 Plus, Xiaomi Mi A2 and Redmi Note 6 Pro, it is not an all-out winner. It's as good as what the other companies offer, not more not less. Just like other phones in the market, it has its strong points, and it has some parts that could have been better. For example, it has better hardware than the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but not the better design or the Android 9 Pie. In terms of camera, I believe the Redmi Note 6 Pro is better, but then the Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes with stock Android (a big advantage, I will say) as well as a better battery life.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 is another phone that is competing for a slice of the mid-dange pie. It’s been marketed pretty aggressively as a competitor to the Realme 2 Pro that was released not too long ago, so it will be interesting to see if it stands up to its claims. We would really love to put it through its paces as well, given the opportunity.

Now, for a quick review, this was already pretty comprehensive and the reasons that we couldn’t call this a full review was because of the pre-release software on the phone plus the fact that, as of writing this article, we don’t know the official price tag of the Max Pro M2 just yet. We’ve heard whispers and have even seen its price released in Russia that amounts to about Php 14,000.

The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 is definitely an upgrade from the half-a-year-old ZenFone Max Pro M1. It provides better performance, cameras, and audio. However, the battery life did not meet our expectations. Given the large capacity, I feel like it should have lasted longer. We hope that this can improve with some software updates.
