The ASUS Max Pro M1 was one of the best value phones of last year thanks to a winning combination of a large Full HD display, stock Android OS, and a massive battery. Now ASUS is building on that success with a sequel that's better in almost every way. The Max Pro M2 has an even bigger 6.26-inch Full HD display, a more modern, more attractive design, a more powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, double the internal storage and memory at 64GB and 6GB RAM respectively, an improved dual rear camera setup.

Brilliant battery life, good performance

from Fone Arena

Overall, the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a good upgrade to the Max Pro M1 when is comes to performance and camera at an additional cost of Rs. 2000 compared to the predecessor. Even though this doesn’t have the same metal build, the design looks attractive. However, it misses out on the USB Type-C port and fast charging once again.

For now, all we can say is that you should get the ZenFone Max Pro M2 if you want a big battery smartphone that lasts long and won't break that easily if you accidentally drop it.

For now, all we can say is that you should get the ZenFone Max Pro M2 if you want a big battery smartphone that lasts long and won't break that easily if you accidentally drop it. It should do well as a movie watching phone but if you're using WiFi to stream, the lack of 5Ghz support means it could be a bit unsuitable. Nonetheless, the RM859 price does make it a device to consider if you're on a budget.

A successor that’s spectacular

from TechPP

That said, it is one of the best blends of style and substance we have seen at its price point. If the camera is not very critical for you, and you can put up with a slightly old flavor of Android (albeit a very clean one), this is, as they like to say in Hollywood, a contender.

It's for those who want a steady performer that can both handle the daily tasks and heavy gaming and lasts long thanks to a massive 5,000mAh battery. It's also a good device to stream videos on. However, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 doesn't have the best camera on offer in that price range. It also has clean stock Android UI which may not ring well with fans of custom launchers like MIUI or ColorOS.
