First impression: ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2

Are you a gamer or into mobile photography? Several months ago, I’d tried out ASUS ZenFone Max M2 (ZB633KL) which I’m still raving over its functionality when it comes to taking photos and long-lasting battery for hours.

I got a chance to try out ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 (ZB631KL) which almost the same functionality as Max M2. It is the successor of ZenFone Max Pro M1,

During the first two weeks, I was able to save up the battery for 2 days. It’s convenient for me to browse stuff online, take photos and videos. It’s been one of the smartphones from ASUS that powered by Android 9 or Pie.

With its 5,000 mAh Battery capacity for long hours of gaming, Qualcomm™ Snapdragon™ 660 for the best and smoothest performance, and 19:9 FHD+ Display for immersive viewing experience which is perfect for watching KDrama and Netflix.

For the camera, I’m impressed with the 12MP+5MP Dual rear cameras especially for taking food shots.
