Asus has been launching quite a number of phones in different price segments for quite some time now. Ranging from entry-level phones to high-end flagships, Asus has experimented quite a lot now but none of those experiments has been a great success for the manufacturer yet. But with the advent of 2018. fortunes of Asus in the smartphone market looks better. With the launch of Zenfone 5 series in MWC 2018 and the new addition to the Zenfone Max series in India back in April 2018, it looks that Asus is back on track and will be giving some tough competitions to smartphone makers like Xiaomi, Honor and OnePlus.
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is Asus’s latest offering to take on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in the budget segment. In the last couple of years, Xiaomi has been able to establish itself as the best affordable smartphone brand with its range of value for money devices. But with the launch of the Zenfone Max Pro M1, Asus has played a masterstroke in the Indian Smartphone Market. With similar specifications but with a price tag that is cheaper than the latest Xiaomi, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 has been well received by the Indian customers.
Going by the specs, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 packs in a 5.99 inch FHD+ IPS LCD display in an aluminium metal body with a plastic frame. Under the hood, the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 runs the show with 3, 4 or 6 GB LPDDR4X RAM in charge of the multitasking duties. Hence, there is no compromise on performance whatsoever. On the back, it houses a 13MP primary sensor with an f2.2 aperture lens which is capable of shooting DCI 4K videos and is aided by a 5MP secondary depth sensor with an f2.4 aperture lens which helps in taking portrait photos. The pair of cameras is assisted by PDAF autofocus technology and a LED flash.
On paper, the cameras look very decent for the price. But the camera performance has received some mixed opinions from many reviewers and Zenfone Max Pro M1 owners. A lot of the negative reviews may be credited to the Snapdragon camera app that handles the image processing duties. The camera interface is very clumsy and the picture quality leaves a lot to be desired.
