Asus ZenFone Max (M2) Smartphone — Hands-on Review and First Impressions | Notebookcheck
Asus announced the budget-oriented ZenFone Max (M2) smartphone in India last month targeting the sub-US$150 user who wants a capable smartphone that gets the basics right. The Max (M2) comes with decent specs and significant improvements over its predecessor, the ZenFone Max (M1). However, does the Max (M2) have what it takes to compete against similar offerings from the likes of Xiaomi, Honor, and Realme? Let's find out in our hands-on review.
75% Asus Zenfone Max M2 review: Stock Android, powerful Snapdragon SoC make it a Redmi 6 Pro alternative
Source: India Today English
However, the biggest threat the Max M2 is its own big brother -- the Zenfone Max Pro M1. At almost a similar price, the Max Pro M1 offers the more potent Snapdragon 636 chipset, a full HD+ display and a bigger 5000mAh battery. Asus is aware of that and hence positions the Max M2 for those who want the notched display over a powerful chip. I can't figure out why users should choose a big display over a more well-rounded smartphone. Till the ZenFone Max Pro M1 stays in the market, the Max M2 can be a tough sell.

It’s hard to find fault within the ZenFone Max M2. It may not look too different from the previous model, but it is so much better in many ways – a better display, dual rear cameras, an improved processor and much more. If you’re looking to find a phone in the sub-Rs 10,000 price bracket, Asus ZenFone Max M2 can be considered as your next smartphone.

All in all, most of these factors even out, and your choice should be based on what parameters you prioritise. The best thing that can be said is that it pushes prices down, and there's no sign of the price war abating.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.
