At $229, Asus is trying to appeal to a very specific demographic: those who want premium-like features and a big battery, but don't want to spend much money. That's a difficult group to appease, and Asus attempted to do so.

Tom's Guide

Asus' ZenFone Max Plus adds a modern design, but serious concessions in battery life and performance make this phone the wrong option at the $200 price.

Has a slick, premium design while making sacrifices in the camera and biometrics. But at its price, it’s a definite contender.

Brings a bunch of impressive things

from Good E-Reader

That 4,130 mAh battery should last you a very, very long time. Add that to the fact that Asus is using a FHD screen (vs a QuadHD one), and you should be able to expect much more than a full day out of the Max Plus. The other big draw of this phone are the dual camera sensors, with a main 16 MP sensor that has a wide, f/2.0 aperture lens.
