Reviews for the Asus Zenfone 4 Max ZC520KL

ASUS Zenfone 4 Max Lite Review
Source: Yugatech English
For a battery-centric smartphone under Php8k, the Zenfone 4 Max Lite is definitely one of the entry-level devices that we will put on our recommended list. It has decent camera quality and long battery life. While it is a toned-down version of the Zenfone 4 Max, the performance is sub-par but it can be used as a device for streaming videos, browsing online, and playing light-to-moderate games. Overall, this smartphone is a good traveling companion or when going on hikes thanks to its long battery life.

55% ASUS ZenFone 4 Max review: Is a big battery enough?
Source: Hardware Zone English
When I review entry-level phones, I don't expect much and I'm conscious of the fact that I'm not the target audience. But even with that in mind, and taking into consideration its affordable S$258 price tag and great battery life, the ZenFone 4 Max is hard to recommend. When even the S$150 Nokia 2 has an aluminum frame on it, there's absolutely no reason why the ZenFone 4 Max should be entirely plastic. The year old Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 costs S$1 more than the ZenFone 4 (you can actually find it much cheaper now) and boasts a full metal build, a larger, higher resolution display, a better rear camera, a more powerful processor, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.

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.
