In search of a new smartphone on Black Friday, I looked on Aliexpress. Like many others, was hoping for a “tasty” price and quick delivery. A variety of proposals are many, but, unexpectedly, I settled on the brand of the device, which I’ve never used Asus.
I have to say — I was pleasantly surprised. Smartphone Asus Zenfone Max M1 Pro is a great choice in 2019.
At least for myself, I found it all necessary. What do you need in a smartphone?
- Easy slim, large 6” frameless screen
- very fast fingerprint scanner
- contactless payment by phone
- nice design and unusual color scheme.
Capacious battery — 5000 mAh battery, which easily lasts for several days. Viewing a 2 hour movie with full screen brightness takes an average of 4 to 7% battery, depending on “weight” and video resolution.
Screen with a resolution of HD+ (1080×2160 px), it is safe to call frameless, although small strips along the top and bottom left. The brightness at a decent level, the clarity is impressive, the bright sun content legible and readable.
From scratching and damaging the screen tempered glass protects what the manufacturer does not specify, but most likely Gorilla Glass 3.
Performance — 3 GB RAM and OCTA core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 636. In the test Antutu device is gaining ~120.000 points — enough for a comfortable and smooth operation of all modern games.
Though the smartphone may not be the best solution for photos it’s capable of just beautiful pictures. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP., and rear, main camera — dual module with permission of 13 MP. and 5 MP.
Dual camera of the smartphone trend. At the same time, this trend can be useful if you like to do macro photography or portraits or a photo quality detail and background blur difficult to distinguish from snapshots to SLR cameras.
And other insights
Special mention, in my opinion, deserve the connectors of the device Asus Zenfone Max Pro is one of the few solutions where you can simultaneously use two SIM cards and memory card — supports flash card up to 2 TB.
By the way, the smartphone can be purchased. how do Chinese sellers — their prices begin from 13 thousand rubles, and in the TMall from Aliexpress on this page, where I ordered.
This smartphone cheaper — 10490 roubles, which is 3 thousand cheaper goods from China, plus I got a year warranty at the official service centers and the delivery from Moscow to Kursk by courier to your door in 3 days. From myself I recommend you to do the same — smartphones in TMall in stock, and the price pleasantly pleases. Can also look at other options here.
