Here is Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 review, this review covers everything that you need to know before you buy the handset. You can check the overall performance, Pubg Gameplay, camera quality / samples and battery life. Price is also the key factor starting from just Rs. 12,999.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 looks really awesome; this is so far the best looking handset for under Rs. 15,000. Well am talking about the blue color variant that may or may not convince you but the titanium color variant surely will. However the titanium variant will take time and may not be available soon.

Inside the hood the Snapdragon 660 AIE processor does a really good job. You can play high end games with ease, hardware hardly heats up and battery life is pretty awesome. I played Pubg game do check the game play in the video review.

On rear there is 12MP + 5MP dual cameras and front camera is 13MP. This handset can shoot 4K videos but if you need video stabilization then that option is available only in 1080p recording mode, video stabilization is pretty good do check the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 video review.

Camera quality is excellent and there is scope of improvement, I believe after software update it will. More features will be added like AI camera and more. For now the Bokeh mode is not available for the front camera but will be added.

But in general the camera output is pretty good do check the samples below.

Talking about battery performance the 5000 mAh battery is massive but does not add to the overall weight of the handset. It takes about 2 hours 30 minutes for a full charge and on a full charge you will get 2 days and even more of battery life based on your usage. If you are a really heavy user then too you will easily get a day of battery life.

  1. – No slow-motion and time-lapse video recording provided
    – Camera 3 x 3 screen grid lines and panorama mode missing…
    These are basics ASUS should provide this with updates.
    I’ve migrated from Moto G4 + to Zenfone Max Pro M2

  7. Now I m highly confused between Asus max pro m2, Mi A2, Redmi note 6 pro, Realme U1. Which 1 to choose…?

    1. my choice is Mi A2, price to performance and quality ratio is gr8 with A2 compare to others. In 18,999 you can have android one, gr8 camera and 6 Gb RAM, 128 GB ROM comparing to 6GB, 64 GB varian of MAx Pro M2 at 16999.

    2. I was also confused in the same way as you are. But now i choose Realme 2 Pro over anyone any will purchase 2 Pro in next sale probably starting from 20th december

  11. Hi Gogi,
    Does it support dual band wifi ( 2.4 ghz & 5 ghz) as the same was not present in M1 ?

      1. 5 Ghz support upto to 100mbps of internet connection. I have ACT broadband which is 100 mbps plan. So I get full 100 mbps speet in mobile in 5ghz (for that you should have Wifi router which supports has 5ghz wifi band) But 5ghz range is very small may be 10 mtr
        2.5Ghz support upto only 50mbps of internet speed. But 2.5ghz range is high may by 30 mtr.

      2. Dear Adam, 5 GHz wifi is lit!!!! I get upto 30 MBps data transfer between two Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 phones(Personally used). Well, All 5 GHz capable phone transfer data via Shareit or some other apps more than regular 2.4 GHz wifi. For this your storage too should be capable enough for such high speed Read and Writes. Always put default storage to internal storage.

  12. Sir,
    Good review …Can you pl help let us know whether the notification is multi color in nature?
    Regards
