Reviews for the Asus Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL

ASUS ZenFone 3 Max ZC553KL review - The well-priced ASUS ZenFone 3 all-rounder
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, the ASUS ZenFone 3 ZC553KL ticks all the boxes in terms of design, performance, battery life and price. Currently at RM869, it is well below RM1K and fairly affordable while providing a good, long-lasting smartphone experience that will satisfy Malaysia’s masses. It also looks fairly good with its thin metal body and could easily be mistaken for a more premium phone.

The Asus Zenfone 3 Max is a decent all-round product, with a good mix of features and performance. The design is good and the phone feels well built. The display quality is impressive and one of the best in its class. The performance for day to day is adequate and the battery life is excellent. It also ships with a fairly decent set of cameras. Overall, nothing that will blow you away but pretty good nonetheless.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
