With bigger display, and faster processor, the phone is a good buy in the sub-Rs 10,000 price segment. The phone is easy for single hand use and looks decent. The quick and effective security features are add-ons that may attract buyers. The only disappointment can be the camera.

Large decent screen, upgraded processor, brilliant battery life

from Fone Arena

This device offers a large decent screen, upgraded processor, and a huge battery. While the camera may not be great, it is decent for the price, but the company could have offered Full HD+ screen instead of HD+ screen.

For while the Max M2 does not get too much wrong, it does not deliver top of the line performance or features in any department either. There are phones that look better and perform better than it at a price point that is similar or just slightly above it, and the biggest examples of it are perhaps the Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Redmi Note 6 Pro.

Good battery life and stock Android but underwhelming cameras

from Gizbot

The ZenFone Max M2 is a good entry-segment smartphone which not only carries a reasonable price tag but also offers some decent specifications. The device is a perfect deal if you are looking for stock Android, good design and a long-lasting battery backup.

A decent option, if you are ready to compromise on the camera front

from The Mobile Indian

The Asus Zenfone Max M2 result is a mixed bag. The phone offers some good computing power and the battery is impressive. The user interface is smooth, though there is a need to adding some extra features. The display is average, though the cameras are a big let down.
