The ASUS manufacturer had a considerable time without releasing new devices from one of their most important phone families, the Zenfone. But today has come a new exponent to this range or, rather, new exponents. Today, December 11, the Zenfone Max M2 and itsPremium version, the Max Pro M2, are added to the Indian market, and in TPT we are ready to give you all the details in this ASUS Zenfone Max M2 & Max Pro M2 Hands-On Review.
We will start this ASUS Zenfone Max M2 & Max Pro M2 Hands-On Review showing images of both devices, which as we will appreciate, share many similarities.
Both terminals include the design of the Notch on the front; however, we can see that the Pro version also has a speaker design somewhat smaller than the standard version. Another outstanding difference at the design level is the finish of the case, since the Max Pro M2is bright with a slight gradient of shades, while the basic version has a matte-finish thanks to the plastic case.
Both models have a dual configuration of cameras in the back, but their design is slightly different, with the Flash with the sensors in the same ring in the Pro version while the standard version has theFlash out of the ring.
The screen is also a point that varies between both versions. Although both have a 19:9aspect ratio thanks to the presence of the top notch, the Max M2 only has a 6.00″screen with a resolution that stays in the HD+ (1520 x 720p), while the Max Pro M2 reaches 6.26″ and a Full HD+ resolution (2280 x 1080p). Both are IPS LCD construction and have a protective Corning Gorilla Glass 6, so they have a good viewing angle and are very resistant.
The section of specifications is another one in which there are slight differences, as we can see in this ASUS Zenfone Max M2 & Max Pro M2Hands-On Review. Both models implement a Snapdragon processor, but come in different versions, with the choice of the MaxM2 an SND 632 and the Max Pro M2 an SND 660. Both processors are very good within the mid-range, so this aspect could not be a very important point at the moment of acquiring them.
Additionally, both terminals have different RAM presentations. The ASUS Zenfone Max M2 can be purchased with 3GBor 4GB of RAM and a 32GB or 64GB ROM; while the Zenfone Max Pro M2 has on the market 3GB, 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of ROM. All versions support memory expansion via Micro SD.
The batteries of these models are really impressive. Both have support for QuickCharge of 18W, even though the battery of the standard version only has 4000mAhwhile his brother has 5000mAh.or
The cameras, as expected, are also different between versions. The Zenfone Max M2 has a dual rear combination of 13.0 + 2.0MP and an 8.0MPfront camera, while the Max Pro M2has a dual rear configuration of 12.0 +5.0MP and a front sensor of 13.0MP.
We finish this section mentioning that both terminals have the same Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and have the same security mechanisms (fingerprint scanner and facial recognition).
Finally, what makes this double release really special. ASUS returns to the Indian market aggressively with the Zenfone Max M2 and Max Pro M2, since the prices for all the versions could be considered excessively cheap for what they offer. Prices are as follows:
Zenfone Max M2 of 3 / 32GB: INR 9,999 / 122 euros
