50% Asus ZenFone Max Plus Review: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back
Source: Tom's Guide English
As similar as many phones look and feel these days, there's typically one quality you can point to that a handset does particularly well, that differentiates it from its competitors. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to find it in the ZenFone Max Plus.

ASUS Zenfone Max Plus Review – Best Battery Budget Phone?
Source: Manila Shaker English
It’s a great choice for people looking for a decent phone under the Php 12, 000 price tag. Well, it can do every mundane stuff and has dual cameras, an 18:9 display, a decent battery life, and both fingerprint scanner and face unlock – all of that for just Php 11,995.

ASUS Zenfone Max Plus Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Zenfone Max Plus is certainly a strong contender despite its late arrival to the 18:9 train, although that late arrival also brings with it missed opportunities and a few hiccups. The device offers decent performance along with an above average display, respectable cameras, a clean UI with appreciated features, and an immersive audio experience when plugged. Not to mention it also has a thin, light and sturdy frame.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus M1 Review: Is ASUS’ First 18:9 Phone Worth It?
Source: Unbox English
On paper, the Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1 checks most boxes that make it a pretty good option for those looking for less than Php 12,000. You’ve got an 18:9 display with great pixel density, an improvement on its dual cameras, premium build quality, and great battery life that makes it live up to its given name as the Taiwanese company’s Battery King. The chink in its armor is the MediaTek processor that may leave heavier users wanting a bit more power under the hood, so keep your usage habits in mind if you are looking to pick up the M1.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus M1 Unboxing, Initial Review: Is It The New Battery King?
Source: Unbox English
That’s pretty much it for our unboxing. No price has been set for the ZenFone Max Plus M1, though we really are hoping ASUS prices this thing correctly compared to its competition. The mid-range, 18:9 market has been especially vicious in the past few months – ASUS really has to set a good pace in terms of pricing at the start of the year to gather momentum.

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.
