Asus Zenfone 3S Max is the newest smartphone from the Taiwanese manufacturer. Asus seems to be on a roll as the Zenfone 3S Max is the latest one on its lineup. With a 5000 mAh, this phone seems to be quite promising but the newest reviews say otherwise. Here's a quick review on why the Asus Zenfone 3S Max is different from other phones in the lineup.
Asus Zenfone 3S Max Features
This phone comes with a 5.2-inch display and a metal build. The phone comes in two colors: gold and black. Zenfone 3S Max has a candy bar design and it has been altered to be more ergonomic. The phone fits perfectly into one's hand thanks to the chamfered back and rim.

Asus Zenfone 3S Max Review
When it comes to performance, Zenfone 3S Max disappoints especially when the user is keen on playing games and using the camera. The phone heats easily and it is prone to lagging. However, the smartphone performs better when users are only doing basic functions like texting and calling.
Multitaskers also find this phone to be a tad disappointing. Switching between apps can be hard to do. While the phone runs on Android Nougat, the interface was seen to be full of bugs. The battery, which has been the main focus of Asus, is definitely impressive. Overall, Asus Zenfone 3S Max is a good pick when users only need the basics phone functionality and a good battery life.
