Zenfone Max Plus First Impressions

Zenfone Max Plus comes in a touch simple design and there’s nothing special about it. The 5.7-inch display ratio looks nice with the complete HD+ resolution it's really clear and crisp. Its running on latest ZenUI 4.0 and has more clean programme compared to the previous version and its more responsive. It still comes with comes with plenty of pre-installed apps that are useful.

Zenfone Max Plus Back Cover

The most I like features of the Zenfone Max plus is that the battery life. It packs 4,130mAh non-removable battery, supported our hands-on we’re ready to get around 8 hours of use in one full charge which isn't bad except for a tool with the complete HD+ resolution display but we were expecting a extended battery life.

It has a dual rear camera with 16-megapixel PixelMaster + 8MP wide-angle optical lens. The PixelMaster camera comes with features like Super Resolution, GIF Animation, Panorama and Selfie Panorama modes. Now that’s plenty of features for a smartphone at this price range.
