  • Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 in Silver

A big change for Asus here is that this is their first smartphone that runs on stock Android, specifically, the 8.1 Oreo.

Question: Does the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 support 4G VoLTE?

It starts with the design.

Having spent a few hours with the phone, I am very impressed with Zenfone Max Pro. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top as well. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 also offers a dedicated microSD card slot alongside dual SIM port. It has a massive 5,000mAh battery bundled with a 10W charger. The ZenFone Max Pro M1, sadly, charges over standard micro-USB and not via USB Type-C. With a thinner lip at the bottom and only some space left on top for the camera and the earpiece, the display on the Zenfone Max Pro is as immersive as any high-end phones present in the market with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent. One phone that is quite popular in this price segment is the Redmi Note 5 Pro, from Xiaomi. It is equipped with a 5.99-inch full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It can also take better photos in darker conditions. The phone, in addition, gives you an option to manually correct colour temperature, as well as a Night Light features that turns them to the warmer end of the spectrum for comfortable night-time reading.

Cubs turn to Quintana in rubber game vs. Rockies
Javier Baez had a huge game in game one of this series as he had four hits, including a homer, and drove in four runs. Opposing Hendricks on the hill will be Jon Gray (1-3, 6.23), who got pounded in his lone home start this season.

Under the hood, the latest Asus ZenFone smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile platform and Adreno 509 GPU inside coupled up to 6 GB of RAM.

The phone packs 1.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 636 with 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. This processor is now the most powerful mid-range SoC offered by Qualcomm, it is also highly efficient and therefore offers a comparatively longer battery life. While the 4GB RAM and 6GB variant cost Rs. 12,999 and Rs. 14,999 respectively.

Asus also announced some partner offers for the buyers.

Coming to the photography department, Zenfone Max Pro M1 sports 13MP+5MP dual cameras at the back with LED Flash.

Ben Simmons posts historic triple-double in Sixers' win over Heat
The 76ers kept hitting Miami in the second half too, albeit on the scoreboard. "We've got to finish it", Simmons said. The Heat have erased a 3-1 deficit only once, in 1997 against NY . "That's what makes this game tough".

Camera-wise, it features a dual rear camera setup (13 MP + 8 MP), and an 8 MP selfie shooter.

Which brings us to software. It's the first Asus phone to actually run pure Android, but there doesn't seem to be an Android One branding that usually comes with such devices. Last year, Xiaomi surprised everyone by launching the Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One smartphone. On papers, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 looks much stronger. Asus has also steered clear of loading the phone with extra apps, and the result as far as we can see is the most uncluttered experience we have seen on an Asus device since the Nexus 7. There is no Android One branding, but this is the very first Asus device to have an nearly stock Android experience (Although you will find "ZENUI" mentioned in the Settings).

The good news for some of us outside of India is that the ZenFone Max Pro will likely make it to other markets, albeit with slightly different specs. ZenFone Max Pro (M1) features a five-magnet speaker driven by a NXP smart amplifier that delivers higher volume with lower distortion. Here's our take on the new Asus phone.
