Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) ZB570TL - User Reviews

  • I have issue,my phone dosent have line/connection,which is i cant make a call or receive call,even emergency call. I already try a few "asus" method like: Format the phone 2 time Turn of/on aeroplane mode At the end, i smash my "asus max plus m1" at the wall. The end ( sorry for my bad grammar)

  • This phone is HORRIBLE. Don't buy this phone you will have a better time with a Flip phone then this, it crashes all the time your Bluetooth and Wifi will cut out this phone heats up like a Microwave and when you face time or anything the Camera is Blurry don't buy this phone you will have better luck with any other phone but this one. Also Never buy a Phone with a Mediatech Processor period.

  • Don't use it. It won't heat up. SMH

  • I've got this phone since its first released. And i find amazing though because i've dropped it several times but never had an issue with its functions on its hardware. What i like the most about this phone is intergrated software: The Asus Mobile Manager software which allows you to manage your phone easily It's up to you to discover it. It's totally great! The only issue i have is its querty keypad because its compressed that's why you get to press the wrong letter sometimes. But Overall, Two Thumps Up ! Worth the price!

  • That is because you kill your battery from watching movies or YouTube too much, which will cause you're phone to lag and/or crash alot. To help this get better you need to boost your phone and clean it's memory. Also, don't own huge apps.

  • I have had the same problem this phone gets hot when you watch videos and Turns off for 5 minutes, but it crashes and restarts all the time, and I have been seeing Battery Problems when I got the Android 8 update it has been draining faster, DONT GET THIS PHONE

  • great phone.. very strong ty asus

  • There is an update. I have this phone. Ever since ASUS updated my phone to Android 8.1.0, I've been having so many crashes. I also don't get phone calls, and sometimes texts even. I don't recommend this phone at all.

  • The ASUS Zenfone Max Plus M1 has disappointed me to no end. The errors/bugs in it include: Laggy firmware which causes random restarts, freezes, crashes Blurry rear camera Middle of touchscreen - there is a strip that just does not work, for no apparent reason. Speakers crackling when clicking back or opening anything to load Multiwindow button needs tapping twice before it responds Facebook app errors due to this phone only (eg. likes and reactions not displaying) Oh my god, please NEVER, EVER, buy an ASUS phone if you value a stable smartphone.

  • June-2019 in Canada the phones audio equlization function which allows amplification of bass and treble did not work when I tried it using the built in FM radio.The airplane mode disables the built in FM radio function for some reason.

  • Is there any update?

  • My Zb570tl touch not functi0n after down 20cm on the floor.

  • I cannot use my back camera and also my flashlight was hidden. Need help

  • then you never should have updated haahhah

  • it heats up all the time

  • I bought the ASUS_X018D cell phone one year ago. My requirements were A) Factory unlocked set B) at least dual SIM provisions C) Decent battery life D) Octa-Core processor 1.5 or higher E) Decent internal RAM, i got the model best buy had, 32GB F) Micro SD provision G) Decent graphics, most definitely NOT top of the line, i don't need top of the line. H) and decent price, approx $200.00 Bottom line, this ASUS_X018D has exceeded all my expectations, i truly got my money's worth. Sooooo to all those reviews that disparraged this cell phone, you have been proven wrong. i remember at the time before i bought this cell phone some people dogged this cell for allegedly getting extremely hot that almost caught on fire they claimed; i say NONSENSE!!!! The battery gets a little warm when phone is being used for extended periods of time(i never have run out of charge); but NEVER caught on fire. the fact that the battery warms up is merely simple physics.

  • wow. I just bought a max plus and. You just made my mind. I certainly hope its a good handset. it looks like one too. and the specs also screams buy ME !

  • Battery drains fast..huhuhu

  • Not a bad phone at all. I use mine when I travel. Though the specs don't make the phone look that great on paper, it's pretty quick and responsive. I think it actually got faster with the Oreo update. There are two things I really love about this phone, (1) the phone supports dual sims plus an additional tray for microSD (most phones have a secondary tray that works for a sim or SD card not both), (2) The specs don't say so, but this phone supports AptX!

  • Don't consider it for game play or something it can't even support pubg in low without lag. Great rear camera thou it's bad when it's low light, pic quality go way down. The build quality is very solid I have dropped it for many times still functioning ,PLEASE note they Have serious issues with their software after I updated their software my phones performance dropped and automatically restart for couples of time if buy try not to update.

  • pls how to update max plus m1 to 8.0 oreo?

  • Bad phone ever! Screen display have lines after 8 months of using. Battery drains fast. Updating to Oreo made it worst! Big mistake and waste of money when you buy this cellphone!

  • This phone is the worst phone I have ever had ! Really ! After 11 month the batterie last 1 day, the quality of the photos is reeeeeaally horrible. And most of the time it takes at least 30 secondes to open an app. Don't even think of taking a photo quickly, by the time the camera open, the thing you want to photograph will be gone

  • Please release an update soon. My phone is useless after the oreo update. I cant get any service here in Manila Philippines. Please fix the problem.

  • After a year of using this phone I am disappointed, battery drains fast and signal is problematic here in the Philippines. If you are looking for a decent phone AVOID THIS ONE.

  • So very baterry draining

  • With screen brightness settings set at minimal, power saving options set properly, battery lasts 2 to 3 days with minimal use. Lasts 16 to 24 hours average use. 6 to 8 hours heavy usage. Continuous usage gaming 4 to 6 hours. I am not sure if this helps, but this is what I experienced. One more thing, battery gets hot and feels hotter than other phones because of alumminum case. It does not affect performance but makes you feel worried about the phone. On oreo now, still waiting if the phone will be updated to pie.. But pie update is 50/50.

  • I think its the massive screen+power hungry chipset that causes this, the battery should be fine at 4000mAh+ but this hardware combo may be the issue...

  • The battery drains easily, false advertisement

  • How long does it last? Are there any other problems with the phone? I am considering this and Xiami 8 Lite so yeah so confusing. Thank you.

  • 4g problem. Unable to used 4g. Worst cellphone ever

  • batter is not good, it gets drained too easliy

  • check for the 4g settings.

  • hahahahaha

  • Same problem. No signal for 4G. Only 3G can be used.

  • I have same problem.

  • battery drained in 2hours after playing. 3hours charge 50% what a joke battery king

  • My opinion: It's a good phone, especially if you are a normal user. My example: Instagram + Pokémon Go + YouTube + Callings + Music + Typing Documents, at the end of the day my battery percentage is between 30 and 40. Camera is not the best, but works well. The sound is awesome for that kind of phone and system is decent (Oreo works worse than Nougat version, some crashes suddenly). If you are an older Asus user, all features and tools come from own Asus is there, works very well. Just an advice, that phone uses Mediatek processor, so when you use a lot your phone, it could became warm, it's normal. That is my experience with 5 months, I am a Brazilian user and my version has 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, accept SD card expansion and 2 chips.

  • still waiting for the update

  • any thoughts on the Oreo Update?

  • There seems to be more bugs and random crashes from the default factory settings on Android 7.0. After having the phone pull the updated 8.1.0 - Oreo the system is running a lot more smoother. I am running a second line on the identical but Silver edition of this phone (Model ASUS_X018D 32Gb) It will not see the 8.1.0 update as available and the phone will crash randomly when in use. Applications freezes in the middle of usage, freezing behavior continues after multiple factory resets, I am submitting a return request for the Silver and try again on the Black edition of the phone.

  • me too having the same problem . by just turning ON the data and just screen is OFF it feels warm and heats up .. what should i do ?

  • It really sucks after updating.. Asus company should fix this..

  • After updating my to OS to OREO, the phone becomes laggy and the only game I am playing crashes a lot. Hope that ASUS will fix this mess immediately in the future update.

  • same problem

  • yes they are already working on it but the release of the fix is still due first quarter of 2019

  • I just bought mine. My phones heats up during games. Should I be alarm?

  • You can just set the graphics option to low if the game does not run.This phone is not designed for gaming but it has very good features compared to other phone in its category. Its LTE data is very fast if LTE-Advanced is activated.I played also games in this cool phone and I enjoyed it.

  • You guys need to report the problem to Asus support for immediate fix action.Asus is active/faster in giving updates than other brands as I experienced.

  • Pubg should be playable because of its dual graphics engine (T860 x 2) .Just dont crank up its graphics setting because Pubg is very heavy graphical game. Network lag is also common in Pubg so one must have very good internet connection with low latency (Fast internet is not enough; Should have good latency as well) Some people reported that this phone has lower performance in oreo system, true or not, expect Asus will provide and fix the issue very soon. Me, im playing other various 3D games with this nice phone with no problem.

  • You can bombard message the Asus Support for it to be resolved right away.They are active in aftermarket support.

  • after the upgrade to oreo 2 days ago, the phone became problematic. The cellular signal is erratic and totally useless when 4g is activated, the remedy was to select 3g on the preferred network settings. Also, the battery drain so fast even on stand by mode. Hope Asus release software update soon

  • Can we play PUBG on this phone?

  • This phone is quite powerful, and quite fast. Oreo has bug in it so lets wait for another update. Anyway, ASUS has very active aftersupport and updates compared to other brands. So no worries, another system update should come very soon.

  • mine reaches 144 F when playing Word Domination

  • This phone lags alot after updating the software to OREO. My suggestion: Never mind the upgrade, just stick with your Nougat.

  • It started when I upgraded my phone to Android Oreo... by the way my phone is less than a week old... will try to fix it but will return it the device on the seventh day... not happy.. due to device drain quickly with just on stand by with data on

  • me too im experiencing the same issue with the 4G signal

  • OREO is GREAT!! Nice smartphone indeed

  • I just bought this unit 2 days ago. Thought the battery is good but drains very fast! Even though Im just browsing FB, like for 10 mins, the battery's going to consume up to 50% already and the phone is somewhat on fire (im way too exxagerated, I know), checked phone temp @105°f.

  • I have this great phone. One of the best Android phones I have.Very rich in features and latest Android Oreo kicks ass! Just use it correctly to maintain its finest! Thumbs up Asus!

  • Do not update to OREO.. I repeat DO NOT UPDATE your phone. It will only cause lag.

  • Me too

  • I have bought this phone for 3 months ago. But now it is very slow on oreo 8.1... I will not buy again bad cpu

  • The lastest update seems to caused the phone to lag and slow down. There were instance where weird noise/sound suddenly echo and then the phone will restart. While playing games, it will hang and will cause the phone to reboot and it's annoying. Wished i didnt update it. Lol. Battery's dying faster that your noob teammate. Lol

  • I just got this phone and its quite amazing. Gyro, Bluetooth LE, GLONASS, HD+ Screen, LTE-A, Bigger Battery, Lots of Good SYstem Updates, Great Camera,and more! FTW!!!

  • So can someone give opinion about the latest update on max plus, does it lag or battery drain so fast

  • At last it is now updated to 8.0 but I turned all the animations off to reduce lag. Don't ever plan on buying this phone lol

  • no call waiting.

  • hi, battery not good! soon empty while is 4130mAh!!!

  • Have using this phone for a couple of month. It is a decent phone but sure it is not the best for that price. You get what you pay. Standby time up to 4days. Normal usage (wifi/data on 24hrs, whatsapp, calling etc.) up to 2-3 days. Heavy usage (game, video, browser etc.) up to 16 hours. Charge the phone using the original charger come with it inside the box. Charging take 2hr 30min to 3hrs. Start charge from 5%-15% and stop charging when it reach 85%-95%.

  • Hi, Im also experiencing this. I got a bit disappointed because my prev. phone is Samsung J5 prime with 2500mAh but I can enjoy a whole day of browsing and playing games. I can even play 2 sets of ML with 15% battery. But now with this Zenfone Max Plus with 4130 mAh, after 3 sets of games it drained from 40% to 19%. My setting is medium graphics only. Im wondering if this is just a defect or it really is an issue to all zenfones?

  • Hi, may I know how's the battery capacity of your phone? Or the usage rather.. my phone consumes 15% battery on watching 1 hr 30 min. On movie.. also consumes 15% on online games! Like Mobile legends on high graphics... is this ok? .. cause my previous phone is Samsung galaxy j6, it has 3100 mah capacity, but the j6 has more longer battery life than this AsusMaxplus! Which has 4190 mah

  • Just bought this phone last week and i noticed that battery drains so fast...i.charge so slow...heats up when watching movies or playing games...this is by far the worst ASUS zenfone...had zenfone 4 max...and battery life is so amazing...100% charged in the morning, wifi or data is on the whole day, i watch onlune, during breaks or ay the time i get home from work around 8pm it still has 30% bat life...max plus, by 3pm is already at 15% with just data or wifi playing games or watching movies...

  • I had the same issue. It often rings 2 minutes late or 4 minutes late, same for you? Try go to Battery --> Battery Optimisation settings --> turn off battery optimisation for alarm clocks. Let me know if it helps.

  • if you play heavy 3D games or games that require a lot of CPU like clash of clans, of course it will drain battery... The cpu it's only 1.5

  • Yeah I noticed that as well, but doesn't seem to happen always.

  • I have this phone and ı have not any problems at alarm clock...

  • I love this telephone. it s strong, quality and enough for me... I dont want to buy so expensive telephones....

  • Alarm clock (ASUS default and other ones I downloaded) regularly ring late, making me late for work. I'm certain I can't be the only one experiencing this??

  • camera too cool! performance 8/10, it just happen to heat fast while DATA is on, yah i agree with you all what zenfone max plus your holding right now?, im using mine for almost 8months and no problem at all :)

  • I honestly don't know which Asus zenfone max plus m1 y'all got... I've bought this phone for three people... Currently using one... No single problem... Battery lasts full day on very intensive heavy usage... Camera is as good as iPhone 7plus... No heating problem... I'm in Nigeria so honestly I don't know which unit y'all got

  • Guys is anyone here experiencing autorestart of phone. As of now i using my phone for social media. I also download parallel app and multiple accounts app so i can open up 3 fb accts at the same time. before it restarts the phone lags. even thou i use power boost its still auto restarts. do i need to upgrade my firmware or others?by the way i already replace the phone because its still under 7 days 1st max plus has the same problem.

  • Thanks, I almost bought this.

  • Yup. Must updated the filmware from 61 onwards.

  • I have this phone for a month or so. And it's pretty good, fast and the battery can hold a lot of processes , apps. I charge it around once per 2 days, but i use it extensively, otherwise the battery can hold for more than 2 days. People who experience batter heat, it is because you dont update it, once you update it for a newer version, there is no more batter heat. And it works even greater after the updates, which i had two of them until now.

  • I just cooked my Breakfast in it.

  • okay. i bought this phone last Sept. 15, 2018 and not familiar with some stuff... but 1 thing is sure...the battery is easily heat when playing games. 10 minutes and up. im using wifi and still baterry drains fast... hmppppppppp... 'battery king" idk whats that since for me thats not true... hoping asus will update this phone to android oreo and make ways to lower the baterry heat up... i love asus phones, i got laptop, zenfone 5, zenfone 2 laser, zenfone max 5.5 and this new one. Thank you asus.

  • same here...easily heat up

  • Hey there's one thing good about this phone. You can use it to iron ur clothes coz it can really heat up in like 15 mins of gaming and then it will start to lag.

  • What do you expect from a MediaCrap SoC?

  • I bought this last July 9 and things are starting to get worse every single day! I chose this because of its said "performance" and now, I just hate it. 1. It is not the "battery king" as they say. 2. The left side of the speaker is not working same as the right side (ofc in all sorts of music, I tried). 3. IT HEATS UP WAY TOO HIGH. 4. I cant seem to find some downloaded files?? 5. It lags sometimes even when Im not using any games or there are no background apps. Im just using messenger. And 5. Whenever I restart it, it wont open again. Even when using the power button. As in no response at all unless I charge it, then the LED indicator will light up and after like 10-15 minutes, it will turn itself on again. 6. MY SD CARD WON'T WORK! I'm using a 32 gb Sandisk SD Card and I bought it the very same day when I bought this phone. At first, everything was fine. I saved pics, vids, and musics in it, then soon after, some pics were corrupted. Same thing when I took photos using the camera. Vids wont play. Musics wont play the whole length. There is always this thing that needs me to grant an access to my SD card and it will always fail! I thought the update will fix this but nah. I just hate it. THIS IS MY FIRST ASUS PHONE AND I HOPE IT WILL BE THE LAST.

  • Just switch my phone from Galaxy j6 over this.. im dissapointed at the low quality speakers and battery life.. J6 can last up to 3 hrs on straight gaming.. but the Max plus only last 1 hr.. J6 has 3000mah , Maxplus 4100 ..wth

  • Went ahead to buy this phone because of the negative comments ... This phone is above excellent front and back camera.... FHD QUALITY DISPLAYS.... Crispy and clear audio output and wonderful sound when using facial recognition... 0.1s fingerprint scanning...super fast internet but got hot a little while on 4g ... Full day battery life on heavy usage... Lag free... I'm getting another unit for someone tomorrow...winks

  • In Portugal it is planned for September

  • Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) is upgradable on OREO? thanks

  • Did they updated it oreo yet?

  • I can't use youtube and there's no volume at all, even when I alarm or in any app. How can I fix these?

  • UPDATE: Noticed that lots of apps wont auto sync and I can't find a solution. My guess is that the mods ASUS made to Android is causing the problem.

  • Hello, just bought this fone yesterday. I have problems on fluctuating volume when using the radio, does anybody have a solution to this?

  • then if that % of battery came up, dont use it anymore at charge it, then tada!, i also have that issue but im ok with this phone still works all around love it..

  • I just bought ZenFone Max Plus last week. But, with 4000mAh buttery, it can last 12hrs. But, problem is when reach balance battery 5%, within 1 minute will drop to 0% and off. Can some one help to solve this?

  • has anyone found root or custom recoveries or custom roms for this model of the phone.I see max pro m1 roms and everything would they work on the max plsu m1?

  • Same here.. FPS drops with MLBB even in mid setting.. Disappointing actuallymm Sent it to there service center and told me that's not normal.. They said they'll fix it..m

  • Yes I have similar problem.. cellular data connection in the became problematic after the 1st 2 months.. The connection either dies or weakens (without reason) while other phones have regular signal (using the same telecom subscriber)... I had to send it to the repair center..

  • The battery is far from good. Using the phone for biking, with strava, maps, bluetooth music and 4g with screen off the battery duration is about 6h or less, with the old LG x power I get 9h/10h with screen on. The bluetooth, that I always let on before, now must leave it off because in a single day without use it consumes 15% of the battery, and the signal is very weak, one wall and starts the jumps. The 4g router its a mess, work 1 time in 20 attempts (with luck). Maybe with oreo update became a better phone, but for now the full price in this phone its a offense, buy it only with 50% discount or more.

  • Really disappointed by this phone. I love ASUS for other products, but on the first day of ownership, the glass covering the camera's lens broke without any real impact impact "placed it on a ceramic countertop". On the second day, I noticed the screen is already scratch by being in my shirt pocket. Bought the Zenfone to replace a moto g 1st gen that I had for 4+ years and besides the charging port, it never broke or scratch, and I dropped it on concrete a couples of times, put it in my pockets with keys etc etc...And never had a case or screen protection So I don't think the zenfone Max Plus will last very long. Too bad because it is kind of fast and good looking.

  • Does anyone here having problem connecting in messenger using free data? solution pleaseee

  • Which is better? Asus Zenfone Max Plus or Huawei Y7 Prime (2018)/Nova 2 Lite?

  • this is so true same as what happened on my phone last night though i just bought it last july 2.

  • Big Asus fan! That being said, this phone has software problems.For the longest time I thought the bluetooth problem was with my car. I think there have been at least 3 system updates and all seem to make the problem worse. Car bluetooth receives well. Outgoing signal is unintelligible, low volume or gone. Plantronics bluetooth earpiece seemed fine. Two updates ago, the Plantronics started acting up. Outgoing ok, incoming gone. Now the phone is acting out without bluetooth. Outgoing ok, incoming gone. I am tired of doing the suggested "back up and reset" and tired of cheat sheet readers. This phone has fallen far from the tree!

  • omg asus this update minimize the heat while using the phone, goodjob!!!!

  • It sometimes freezes. There are also times when the sound volume fluctuates.

  • mic

  • Hey guys! I've got tips for yah! If you want your battery to stay long, change your battery settings from normal to power saving mode, then you can now experience the "Battery King". That's how it works. I hope it helps.

  • Bought mine last June 08. Battery drains fast unlike Zenfone 3 Max. It takes a while to charge as well given that I don't use it while charging. :(

  • my asus max plus battery DRAINED too FAST...I cant enjoy the battery king disappointing model... How to fix this? BATTERY KING is DRAINED fast to the MAX

  • Hey.. what version of firmware you are using? thanks.

  • Just bought a brandnew Asus Zenfone Max Plus and the 4000MAh is not even true . My phone just reach 7 hours straight surfing with wifi . Please do fix it . I thought it could really be a power bank but i just got fooled by your posts . The battery of your Asus Zenfone 3 max 5.5 is way better than this updated phone.

  • Mine too, started to stable my phone function, but there are times that i'd still experiencing overheating. Please continue to fix this issue. Thanks ASUS team

  • Look at someone else's androiD settings for Google play services. Give the same permissions

  • dude kindly double check if you already update your latest updates of the phone, cause mine is actually perfectly fine, happy with the all round performance, the tiny prob is it get hot fast specailly when using your data/wifi but the all is good,

  • hi currently im using max plus im really cool using this phone, but if your planning to pick/use max pro or plus, just go with "max pro" since its already snapdragon and also much high battery performance, end of the question

  • Hi, I am planning to buy a new budget phone But, I am confused which one to choose between this one (Max Plus) and Max Pro This is phone is using mediatek, if I use this for daily life, playing 3d games, etc, of course this phone will get hot. But my question is, does the resulted heat still acceptable ? I hope this phone will not as hot as my old zenfone 5 (first generation) (or even worse) ... Thank you

  • Halo. Google play service error always shows op? Restarting many times, but still exist. Do you experience the similar things? What should I do?

  • yes im using it too it becomes hot but its okay in

  • and there you go using max plus for 2 months,frankly speaking, this phone is a good choice for a budget phone, can handle every thing, yah it goes hot but its fine kindly take a break for a bit, camera average but still good, for games yah can still run games properly, dont belittle mdtk thats all i can say :)

  • Do you get FPS drops or does the game freeze sometimes?

  • I bought phone 6/May/2018. hen i switched on it was working fine. i configured and saw the battery was 40% and connected charger. after 3 hours i went and saw the phone is dead. not able to wake up. and charging light also switched off. try switch on mobile for more than an hour unable to switch on. I tried with different chargers too. 2 hours later try press the power button more than a minute then phone responded. Dont know what is the issue with phone. Display , sound is good camera average but I asked for return. I cannot use this buggy phone

  • what abiut battery backup

  • One of the Best Mobile With Latest Features within Affordable Price Range

  • Dont buy this model,super bug,less support,Great amount of Ram but the CPU is the worst part,cpu performance was very poor and not optimized,High temp,power drain,network speed .Its maybe just a bug or rather can be fix in the future,but ,NO ONE BUY A THING THAT NEEDED to be adjust and tweak to get the best performance everyday,contantly plugin charger Just merely surfing web for 5 minutes temp rise,10 minute after temp rise the battery % started to drop drastically.Gaming hard?1 hours will make your hand uncomfortable due to hot temp,Lagging and low bat seriously guys,I feel like using a Zenfone 5(1st zenfone)with intel but without the burn.For now this M1 Max suitable only for powerbank and toasting bread.The last Asus phone for me.

  • dude, try to check also your location. im using but its perfectly fine,. :)

  • I have had this phone for 6 months. It has been back to ASUS twice for repairs on the terrible Wi-Fi- and still is awful. As a phone, and for texting, it is good. For DATA and Wi-Fi, it is useless. The camera is barely adequate, but I did not expect great quality at the price, but I did expect decent Wi Fi. Save your money. BTW, I have spent most of the past 6 months using my 4+ year old Nexus 5 since it is more reliable. I bought the ASUS because of the dual sim cards- but still have to carry a second phone if I want Wi Fi. Avoid ASUS.

  • I have this phone since 2 months. Yes it is Mediatek but it works very fine and quick. Very satisfied with this product. After a couple of patches the battery life is quite good, 2 days in average.

  • Mediatek ;(

  • dont buy this, because zenfone max pro m1 more better and more cheap :D

  • smh its mediatek :(

  • zenfone max plus give oreo 8.0

  • when we found it in Bangladesh?

  • Disappointed wth to unit. The screen is always on even if I already unlock it

  • best budget phone

  • M1 Plus camera is better that's for sure but on the other specs choose honor 9 lite, go ahead...

  • M1 Plus camera is better that's for sure but on the other specs choose honor 9 lite, go ahead...

  • 720p or 1080p??

  • dude, why buy max plus if you are aiming for the camera lol, ur the one making your head spin >.

  • Upgrade your firmware and use HDR mode, mate, because zen max plus only put 1.0 um sensor on their camera so it would not great for average type person. I'm used to be a dslr user for years and i dont really surprised about any smartphone camera, but manual control is usefull.

  • I bought a unit yesterday. I just want to try a new brand, I already tried Samsung before, my most recent phone is Xperia, I am really eyeing nova 2i, because of budget but good specs, but I landed on Zenfone Max plus yesterday, because the specs are good for the price. I am really NOT contented with the camera..... I hate Zenfone Max plus camera... I do not know what to do with it. I'm a point and shoot type of person, I'm not into selfie, I really don't ask for much, I never had a problem with Samsung, especially with Xperia.... now.... I am having a problem with ZenFone Max plus.... If only I can return it to the store. I don't know if I can find ways to fix it.

  • Ah. Thats why. Your version is the latest firmware?

  • I charge the phone fully but after using for couple of minutes, it drain so fast. From 100% to 95%. So sad.

  • Play until 2% mate,

  • I can only play 5 hours. How can you play up to 6 hours? Are you using it 100% to 0 or 100% to 15%?

  • Great phone, I use it as my second or back up. Great screen, cheap price, nice build quality and great battery life. It lasts two days on pretty constant use. I don't play games but watch a ton of youtube. Only drawback is no Gorilla Glass or anything scratch resistant on it. I don't really care because I take care of my phones but I can see how this could be an issue for many people who randomly throw it in their bag etc.

  • great phone. got it 2 days ago. after a full day of normal use, at 00:00 i still had 22% of battery. good photos and good display.dual sim + dedicated μSD card (hard to find). best buy at this price ~220€

  • Can anyone tell the advantages of M1 compared to Mi A1? Because based on the reviews, A1's rear camera is better (I will give the rear camera for Mi A1:M1 = 12:11). On the other hand, the front camera & the voice recording definitely goes to M1. Or maybe someone has different opinion in rear camera's performance? And in performance/battery life? Thank u

  • where I can find the gps of this phone?

  • Im not using honor 9 lite yet but my experience using nova2i is good, all i can say is huawei put such great effort to camera feature. In other words, you can choose h9lite for photo quality, camera feature and more powerfull cpu, or max plus m1 for bigger ram and rom, extendable creatifully wide lenses, and of course bigger battery.

  • Go back to your Nokia, problem solved

  • good phone. Heats up easily when playing high quality games, though, like Tower Conquest or COC. Just take breaks every now and then to cool it down

  • I couldn't pick between M1 plus or Honor 9 lite? Aren't both of their cameras the same? Except the front camera, I think the honor 9 lite is better. Maybe someone can give me insight, please.....

  • Dont have any issue, been playing PUBG mobile with balance setting and med fps, smooth, no heat and superb battery, sot got 6 hours straight playing pubg mobile.

  • been using max plus for almost a month, all i can say to his phone is super balance in terms of batt/camera/gaming performance the price is a good deal, GJ asus :)

  • been using max plus for a almost a month, all i can say to this phone is balance gaming/camera performance the price is a good deal :)

  • I'm planning on buying on a new phone. Here in my place the cost is around Rp2.800.000,- or $220/€188. I want to ask anybody that is already use this phone, is it a good phone for that price? For comparison Xiaomi Mi A1 and the redmi note series costs around that price, and it uses a Snapdragon 6xx series. Specwise, it's inferior compare to Xiaomi, but some say that the phone has good quality, durability etc. And I understand that Asus is a Taiwanese brand, not Chinese, so the price will be higher than usual chinese phone. But some also say that it has an inferior camera, likes to overheat, and ineficient Please give suggestion on this problem. Sorry for bad english and long post, Thank you. Please answer me. Trims.

  • I tried using it with multi-window facebook+youtube it lasted me 6 hours at low brightness. I hope this helps

  • Here in Indonesia we got 16MP Front Camera version

  • Batterries are draining fast, when im using the data i use to charge up the batteries 2-3 times a day. And i have a problem receiving messages from my local sim.

  • Similar to S9 with all day battery!!!

  • not really bad

  • Does this company Asus have any relation to the company ASOS?

  • dont buy this phone if u looking for performance, it has terrible experience for gaming. if u looking for photo or selfie this phone for you otherwise this phone suck!

  • Been using this phone almost a month, totally satisfied with its price/performance definitely great and can compete with my GF Redmi 5 Plus,the camera also work great for outdoor

  • ASUS for the durability and availability of repairs. Xiaomi for the price and specs.

  • Im currently using this phone as my daily, and no gps problem at all, pretty fast and acurate, maybe it is because this device has 4 gps supported glonass, baidu and A-gps on it.

  • Hi May I know the phone gps can using?waze and Google map have any problems?because.last time I also using asus phone all gps location can't using.but this model I very like max plus m1....

  • No nfc? boo..

  • Did the Firmware Update of this March 16, fixed the battery drain problem?

  • The camera is pretty bad. Like a cheap chinese phone.

  • With low price, you can have 4130 mAh big battery, less heat with new processor octa-core MT6750T, low light and wide angle f/2.0 aperture 16MP stunning photos, new Android 7.0, and 4GB RAM. Really recommended.

  • Sir.. Ur battery it will last one day using data .how is d option to have longlast batt .. Im using also max plus

  • I actually initially returned this phone after buying it. I felt it was a bit choppy and thought I could get better for the price. I was wrong. I tried other phones and did extremely thorough Internet research and ended buying BACK the same Max Plus phone, from Best Buy again. Ultimately, for the price, it is a very good quality phone. The screen, battery, and overall speed are great. Very crisp, colourful and snappy experience. It does heat up a lot, the buttons and overall design is clunky, and it can be choppy, but if you look at the specs, this is simply best phone you can get for the price.

  • They did this probably because they learned that the last time they use snapdragon 615, 616, and 617 on their phones, all of them got overheating, slowdown and lagging, also battery drain issues.

  • i'm considering about getting mi a1, but this one seems to be nice alternative. i wonder if someone could give good comparison between these two also i heard that most zenfone with mediatek got some serious overheating issue, i wonder if this one still suffered the same

  • i brought one and i like it just like my good old asus zenfone 5 (intel SoC) i only hate is the screen protection its only typical glass for smartphone. audio output on speaker is decent poor and software (mostly google apps like music player) yes it heat up for long hours of use full brightness. this is worth for bucks for me unlike oppo A57 (ONLY I LIKE IS COLLABORATION OF DIRAC AB for audio the rest specs for girls or ladies like selfie anyday)

  • Just want to know did u guys just update ur software? Since asus have a terrible update,should i update the software?

  • Plss help wat isthe option for the long last battry usage. It is normal? fully charged at 11 pm. I check at morning the batt prcnt is only 95 prcnt even wth out using it .. Thnkz plzz reply

  • really i confused buy mobile Asus Zenfone Max Plus or Redmi 5 plus

  • And how about the battery?

  • How about the rear camera and speed?

  • How many hours your batt last using data browsing and chat? Thanks

  • Recomended because the price is very cheap and you can get fullview display in very compact design, big ram and rom, good front camera, face unlock and the new zen ui is very nice and smooth.

  • My dear friend, I have been using Asus phones for years with fast charging feature. You can only use fast charging feature if you purchase a fast charger. Asus charger from the box are not fast chargers.

  • nova 2i no fastcharging

  • Works like a charm. No battery problems at all. Actually a very good set for its price!

  • Sorry, but it is not. Its name is BATTERY KING butit actually isn't. And you cannot enjoy the features on the phone that are supposed to be the best features of the phone

  • I already bought this unit yesterday, the performance of this phone is very good, the cameras (rear and front) are very good, no lag at all, but there's one thing, the battery life of this phone is on the average level. But still the battery could last 8-10 hours standby.

  • Is it recomended?

  • Very bad experience with this phone... tried. The super megapixel and the outcome is that the person looks like a zombie not pixelated.

  • how much is the original message occupy the memory? since is only available 32GB internal storage in Malaysia

  • I'm currently using this device as my daily drive. The battery is very good even i dont use power saving mode, it has 7-8 hours of SOT with almost 17 hours intensify use, in Indonesia, max plus has HD res, i feel disappointed knowing that asus decrease it resolution, but it acceptable, even the quality of screen is average. The main question is why asus put mediatek chipset here, even it has MT6750T as oppo f3 and vivo v5 had ever used, asus can put helio p23. Performance is not so great, its just average, online game like Mobile Legend and Vain glory has a no lag but fpsdrop is appear somewhere, netmarble evil bane is fully playable too. Surprisingly, there is no heat or even overheat issue while this device is being used in intensivve gaming, even it use mediatek. Maybe, mali TP860mp2 in asus max plus is similar like in helio p10. Or, reducing screen from fulhd to hd is a nice decision. I dont know why everyone seems have heat and battery drain issue, maybe it because they have fullHD version.

  • Nova 2i is way better than this. No heat problems.may have smaller mah battery but lasts longer than this phone. Had asus for a week and sold it to buy nova 2i. Best decision!

  • I agree with you.

  • I have been using Asus phones for years. And have now changed to Huawei. Wisest decision I've made ever. Asus phones have heat and battery issues. The reason they made big mah for batteries is that the phone's processor of the phone itself consumes too much battery.

  • Huawei Nova2i has better camera than this.

  • Huawei Nova 2i vs Xiomi mi m1 vs Asus max m1 which one should i buy? Please help me

  • Is it enough just with 32gb?

  • Hi Guys, I just bought last Sunday, the poor camera performance may due to poor asus camera apks, that may improve by install the Camera MX, I have tried this morning and works fine.

  • What is the use of the bottom left grille?

  • ASUS you need to take an action on this! as no good feedback comes from users using this model.

  • Dissapointed on the battery life, and overheating issues

  • don't check the 2x lifespan so it won't drain fast

  • Originally i wanted the normal zenfone max; no finger print & dual camera based on my budget. I have 2 choice; zenfone max or samsung j7 pro. Yet, i chose max since j7 pro's android only 6.0 which is older. But the seller suggest i take max plus since if differs myr100 only so i take it. I used asus zenfone go zc500tg previously, but it's so laggy and always stopped app for like everytime. Which disturb my work if i use it urgently. Camera - 8.5/10 (wide angle is nice for group photo, but only up to 8mp, kinda downline for me. front camera just ok. They have selfie master which similar with other beauty app) screen - 8/10 (they have this one hand operation view, which quite handy for a multitasking person like me. plus glove mode, i havent test yet but will do in the future. Im not sure whether it is Youtube new feature or this phone, u can watch it in 2 types of full screen, 1 which utilized the whole screen, 1 is normal view full screen. No corning gorilla like max pro, from what i know it protect your screen from minor scratch & crack. Thats make me to handle it with extra super duper care & alert. I drop my zenfone go hundred times, no injury until the ultimate fall from motorbike. Yeah, one big scar across the screen) battery - 7/10 (so far, as a new phone no problem. Full charged on 6am, use it the whole day without having a panic attack in finding my powerbank which is my everyday routine. Depends on what i do on that day, if i watch video it'll drain faster yet not so fast like my zenfone go. Bare in mind i use it with 4g internet 24hours & active streaming-fb, youtube, google, whatsapp, wechat, some on9 game, joox & instagram. Charging it to full took time & somehow annoyed me without a reason. Asus are well known for their hot battery, my zenfone go even have personal fan to cool it down when it is too hot. So far max plus never get that hot level that i got, only warm when i use youtube continuosly ) unlock - 9.5/10 (finger print is like a must in 2018. So, i love it. I havent tried face recognition yet thus 9.5 score) mobile manager - 10/10 (i thought it was file manager but im wrong. Similar to clean master, u dont need to install clean app. I love it because no ads for sure. Save your phone memory tho) zen.ui 4.0 interface - 10/10 (prrobably what makes me like asus is i dont need to install lock app theme & phone theme. Plus asus keyboard can customize theme & can put picture in it! Again i dont need to install unless u want more updated emoji) android 7.0 nougat - 8/10 (u cant complain if u have 7.0 in 2018 unless u got 5.1 lolipop. Probably because that im aware that 8.0 version is already available on certain phone since it is the latest one. But 7.0 quite ok, u cant complain yet) reverse charge - 4/10 (the lowest one, why? It is not fuctional. I test it with my zenfone go for this feature, but unfortunately nothing happen. I dont know whether i need to set up first or what, thus 4 since it is bad number in chinese. Ha. Ha.) overall - 7.5/10 (because google apps took my storage the most out of all the apps, & u cant uninstall it. I mean i dont use google play music & tv and google photo app. I hate it cuz its sit there like parasite. The one that makes me mad as hell is that i have to use google music or joox to listen my music. Thats -2 points. The box comes with usual usb charger, pin to access the simcard & sd card, earphone with extra sets of buds, usb for reverse charging, & silicone case. No screen protecter, depends on the shop whether foc or upgrade to tempered glass-a must. Affordable price, the only differs max plus & max pro is dual camera, finger print & ram. If u have more budget, go for max pro or nova 2i. But if lesser budget yet wanted hi-tech feature, this one is ok since it is one of the latest.) My review based on my own experience. So, it might differs with others experience with max plus. My suggestion, go for lots of survey and asked the expert. I took half an hour just for arguing & discussing the specs with my tech geek friend on the phone b4 finally bought it. Dont ask girls, they just bought phone bcuz it is trendy & celebrity endorsement. Differs from me altho im a girl, i go for specs first b4 else. I dont bought asus because of gong yoo, thats for sure.

  • da

  • My zenfone max plus m1 is 5 days old anditcan only last 4 hours or less. it has the sw version... 20180124. Battery drains super fast. When i checked the Battery usage the '' standby'' mode is consuming most of the power. Its so disappointing. I already customized the settings, brightness, kill apps, blah blah but no change. I have 7 day replacement period i just hope the store replace it fast.

  • Soooo Disappointed !! BATTERY drains so fast !

  • Too many complain regarding this device.

  • What do u expect from mediatek its their specialty easily increase temp and drain/damage your unit,

  • So disappointed battery did not last for a day even on stand by so disgusted.

  • Ja its good for gaming but the second update its drain so easy... 100% but after 5hr not using too much its 5%... Seems like i still using iphone...

  • Asus still did not learn on the 1st time they did put MTK on their devices. Overheating issues and battery drains fats. If they just use Snapdragon on this model, this will probably sell like hotcakes.

  • Disappointed. Battery drain so fast suggest not to get one.

  • Just change my m1 yesterday. its still desame, battery drain so fast, Overheating issue... ASUS please Fix this issue !

  • Same like mine. Just bought 2 days ago and updated software ! But , it still battery drain g so fast ! Overheating issue, it's like 54Celsius and it can 🔥 your finger while playing low end games like moba! While I'm typing its down 2 percent of my battery wtf! 4100mah???? I have j7 pro I can play moba for 30 minutes and it's only consume 6 percent of my battery and it's like 35 Celsius its so cool ! This m1 phone its like you have 2900mah battery on 6.0 phab phone! 👎 👎 👎. Now down to 6 percent of my battery while typing wtf!!!!

  • may i ask? if the max plus is good for gaming or not ??

  • Disappointed with the battery life...battery drain very fast....

  • Disappointed. Battery drain so fast suggest not to get one.

  • Sorry this is first my asus phone really not good. Battery big mAh but really fast drain. Camera just mention dual but..really bad. always shaking not sharp the images. sorry asus,this model really worst ever.

  • I read something about this on the Asus site but it seems the remedy is in the use of the battery app

  • I am pretty sure you will only get the 1440X720 screen with 4gb ram and the 1080X2160 with 3gb ram although I noted many of the Asian sites only have the 1440X720 screen.Strange pricing though, just one dollar difference for the lower resolution screen plus an extra 1 gb of ram . You would think the lower spec with the extra 1 gb of ram would give better performance and better battery life but that pricing has me puzzled. I di note that on the Asus global site they spruke the 1080X2160 screen but they list both screens in their spec sheet.

  • may i ask you about nova 2i?

  • I had this phone last 1-26-18 and i was amazed by its long battery life, performance, as well as the camera... But after i updated the firmware the battery drains faster like it consumes 2 percent of my battery when I'm on mobile data and it was not doing that before the update and also i'm having issues with the super resolution because it tends to get blurry after the result... I hope their new update will fix these issues on my device.. But so far, this phone is good for basic use... Not having issues at all in terms of its hardware

  • clear system cache

  • It is not a good device. I've bought mine just last week. The battery drains fast, and it is not charging properly anymore. I hope it will get fixed.

  • The audio and facial recognition are not that good. It lacks bass. The sound is average. The fingerprint scanner is fine though. I like the display, crisps and nice to view.

  • I've bought this phone on January 25, 2018. All was fine until I tried to charge it the second time around, the battery was stopped at 74%. I did all the troubleshoot, from safe mode, charged it on a laptop, factory reset, system update, etc. It's still the same. I will bring it later in the service center. This is my first Asus mobile.

  • Are you sure ?

  • Well, tempered glass can be easily break with a pointed things

  • Not really a battery king. Only 4000 mah.. expectation vs reality. I preffer nova 2i than this

  • because the screen not gorilla type

  • unlike the asus zenfone 4 with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection, asus zenfone max plus offers none. sad :(

  • Just about to buy one. Any comments about the AUDIO QUALITY? and any violent reaction about the device's facial recognition and fingerprint scanner?

  • I purchased zenfone 4 maxx plus last sunday, i just wonder why the screen was easily broken, i accedentally drop my ballpen on the screen and its broken.

  • just about to buy one, any suggestions?

  • battery drains fast is there any way to resolve this? or should i return it and have the battery replaced? need help thankyou

  • Does your phone have double tapping issue? Coz mine has. 😭

  • previously had a nokia lumia 1520 and battery performance was superb. i was expecting that i would get the same experience with this 'battery king' but no.

  • are kidding kidding??? for 40 minutes and just consumed less than 10% of your bat? with continuous use that's OK for me because mine that would be below 70% for my phone, mine is not zenfone but i envy your bat capacity.

  • i purchased zenfone max plus last monday 1-15-18, the speed is great, camera. etc. but now most of the pictures in the gallery went in half color gray and the other image is almost color gray. how can i fix this? thanks

  • i need help/suggestions. i purchased this phone 2 days ago and I'm dissatisfied with the battery. i mainly browse the web like check emails, facebook, google with occasional video streaming. no gaming. battery went from 97 % to 89% in just 40 minutes amd i was just browsing the internet. should it function this way? or is there any way to make the battery more efficient? appreciate any help. thanks!

  • i bought it on the day it was released here in the philippines..its not what i expected..the battery is easily drained.. i bought it for gaming only and the performance is not bad.. it score only 40k+ on antutu benchmark compared to my daily use iphone6 75k+... and on PCmark benchmark is so laggy compare to iphone6.. im very disappointed.. but for daily use web browsing facebook etc. this is for you if you want cheaper and equal performance.

  • Any news on Zenfone 5 2018?

  • mediatek is sucks , you play moba when you charge the phone , you will get lag . thats something shit .

  • Its very terrible dont buy it. Camera not good its sucks -.- Battery life not good also. I bought this day and i compared it to my zenfome 3 max 5.2 AND my max 3 was better in camera and battery life. Im very dissapointed Asus -.-

  • hahaha

  • I think it has Planet of The Apes Glass. much better than Gorilla Glass.

  • Overall this phone ok to statisfied

  • Do it has a gorilla glass protection?

  • Hey, not so sharp as in front camera or back camera? The battery is good?

  • Yeah bro i agree , max 3 is the vise versa version. . Lol

  • Im not sure why a lot of complains for the batt, since using this phone I only charge once a day! The only think I don't like is the camera, slow response under low light and images is not so sharp compare to my zenfone selfie, but the overall, this phone is superb with the price.

  • how much?

  • Just got one... not that user friendly and camera not good...

  • Got the same model as u but why its so bad haha maybe u got the wrong one, the chinese 1 maybe

  • MediaTek..pfffttt..its 2018 dudeeeeeeeee

  • don't buy, the CS doesn't shown any helpful to solve your problem.

  • My Asus Max Plus M1 phone (asus x018dc) did not come with PowerMaster or face unlock and cannot find the toggle setting for power key instantly locks. please help. the battery drain is an issue right now and hoping it that this devise isn't defective

  • Users should not have to do this. A big battery is useless if it drains a lot under normal use.

  • I am currently using the first version of ZenFone Max and it's the worse phone that I ever bought (worse in all aspects). I've root it, bricked it, downgrading it, and now I'm still using it :'). You can buy much better phone in that price range. Anyway, I'm planning to trade my old ZenFone Max to this new one. In malaysia you can get rm200 off if you trade it with your old phone. what do you guys think?

  • Dear All, If your Asus Max Plus M1 phone has battery life issue, please just open the app "PowerMaster" built in to the Asus. Change the battery modes from 'Normal' to Performance. Taa daaa.. Your battery will be better than normal. Funnyyyy.. before this, i used the Asus zenfone 3 Max, it was opposite of this settings.. hahaha..

  • Before i had a Asus Zenfone 3 Max, Life Was Great! I was living away from my charger! But now, after 'upgrading' to Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1 (Malaysian Version) -4GB Ram, 32GB Rom. 4130mAh battery.. Life becomes sucks again. Battery sucks way too fast. Please Asus. Please do something about this. From Your Asus Customer & Almost #1 Fan.

  • The perfomance is good but battery drain like peeing in a whimp hole.. Damnn ... I think zen max 3 has better battery life than this phone.. Any solution?? ..

  • It's 2017 bro phablets are now 7 inches in fact I would much prefer it if it was even bigger but that's just me.

  • gsmarena please specify Malaysia as exception only 720p.... otherwise we see ur spec and buy thinking 1080p display..but found out only 720p . will be very angry

  • screen is only HD 720

  • i prefer better screen though

  • Malaysia version is 720p screen but have 4gb ram

  • Hey asus if you read this post make smaller phones this one is really good for screen body ratio but it can be 145x70mm with 5.5" screen :) therefore everyone can handle it as a real phone not as like phablet...

  • Always trust Asus to shortchange

  • It's the lower end kind, maybe a little better than some other MTK low-end chipsets but it's still miles away from the MTK P10-25 series and even the SD625.

  • Optimization is the Key for ASUS. Not only Optimize like OPPO but OS Update for sure. You dont know anything about ASUS.

  • Specs are good for a phone with price tag up to 150

  • Good joke Asus.

  • Put MT in bezelles device abd hope people will only stare at your lowres screen to forget the MT. That's our philosophy at Asus.

  • Waiting for Asus ZenFone Max Lite have same specs such as bezel-less display, IPS LCD with 5,0 inches, 18:9 ratio, 2 gb ram, and 2.650 mAh battery, but have entry-level price like Asus zenfone go with prices in the range 110-150 euro or called "next zenfone go 2017".

  • Is it my impression or Asus is getting worse everyday? And raising their prices.....Almost 300€ for a 430 snapdragon on the zneonfe 4 max?!!!

  • Guys plz tell me what will be the price of this phone in India and its release date

  • What kind of mediatek is this

  • And also type C USB connector with fast charging

  • At least using soc sd450.

  • It should be with Oreo ... :(
