Are you into mobile photography? For the past few weeks, ASUS Zenfone Max M2 (ZB633KL) became my daily driver for work and leisure.

After I did a hiatus in the local music scene four months ago, I realized that instead of going through a lot in life…I need to focus on other things. Last month, I decided to pursue photography. When I had a chance to try out Zenfone Max M2, it’s different from the mobile phones that I reviewed for the past few years as a lifestyle blogger.


Though it’s a stock Android Oreo, Max M2 thrilled me to use it doing social media postings, taking photos and videos, listening to music via Spotify, and watching KDrama series on Viu and Netflix. As a freelance social media manager, using it for work…it’s convenient for those people on the go like me who always doing updates on Facebook and Instagram. I was really in awe of the image quality. It’s like I’m using a high-end smartphone that can do in an entry-level phone.


The best thing about ZenFone Max M2: 4000 mAh battery that can last up to 22 hours if you use for web browsing connected to a Wi-Fi router. In my case, this sleek phone lasted for me more than a day while doing social media updates while putting my earplugs on Spotify.

I was amazed by the result of the shots I took below. It’s NOT filtered or enhance using a photo editing app.

Meanwhile, I used 1080 HD quality. The audio quality doesn’t have unusual crack sound even if I took it near the speakers.
