Definitely a contender for the mid-segment smartphone champion title. The Zenfone 5 had made us wonder, but with this device, we can safely say that Asus has got its phone Zen back. Pun intended, of course. Them 2014 ZenFone 5 feels.

With the device, Asus has taken practically every step possible to counter the competition. The price is lower, the specs match and exceed the best in the business and the execution is indeed very good.

There just is no beating Asus in terms of overall value. You get a great 18:9 display, great gaming performance, a breezy no-frills software experience and a two-day battery life. The only area where it does fall short of great is the camera performance and a dull overall look.

A smartphone with a lot of potential, purely because it builds on the strengths of Asus while doing away with some of its biggest weaknesses. While the near-stock Android software is its biggest USP, the Zenfone Max Pro (M1) also offers solid specifications, good build and a dual-camera setup, all for a price that is aimed squarely at taking on Xiaomi’s dominance in the Indian smartphone space.

So close to being the budget champion

from Beebom

The smartphone brings exceptional battery life, great performance, and near stock Android experience with Android 8.1 Oreo at launch. If not for its below-par camera, bland design, and the absence of Gorilla Glass protection on its display, it could have been the best budget smartphone.
