This time, Asus has completely revamped the design. Now the phone has a premium 3D curved glossy design. So, it looks beautiful from the back. It shows shining lines that change shape on different angles. The phone is 8.5 mm thick and carries just 175 grams of weight even with 5000 mAh battery.

It has a 6.26-inch display at the front with a notch. Notch houses the front camera, front camera flash, and earpiece. The front side also has Gorilla Glass 6 protection

It has the volume rocker and power button on the right side of the phone. Triple SIM slot is on the left side of the phone where you can insert two nano SIM and a microSD card. It has micro USB, speaker and headphone jack on the base side. The back panel has a dual camera located on the top left side along with a fingerprint sensor on the top center.

The phone is glossy but is not slippery. You get a back cover within the box for extra protection. The phone is really impressive in design and build. This is also the most beautiful and nicely built phone in this segment.

Zenfone Max M2 features a 6.26-inch Full HD+ Display with 2.5D curved glass. The display has a 19:9 aspect ratio. The display of the phone is really good and is bright enough for making it good even in outdoors. It has good viewing angles and offers vivid colors. So, video or movie experience will be good.

It runs on stock Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It runs on stock Android with no skin at the top. It just comes with 6 extra pre-installed apps alongside the default stock Android apps. These apps are Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, Sound recorder, Calculator and FM Radio. So, there is no app that won’t use. One more thing, you cannot uninstall these apps but can disable.

It packs 1.95GHz Snapdragon 660 processor with AI Engine. Adreno 512 GPU is also there to handle graphics. We have already seen the power of this phone in Realme 2 Pro. This phone performs well in day to day usage and handles gaming well. The phone comes in three RAM storage models including 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, 6GB RAM with 64GB storage. Select any of these depending on your usage and budget.

You can also expand storage up to 2Tera Byte and like other Asus phones, 100GB Google Drive promotional offer is also valid with this phone

The phone has a dual camera on the back that includes 12 megapixels primary camera with f/1.8 aperture and IMX486 sensor along with 5 megapixels secondary depth camera. It also has 13 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The phone can record 4K videos and has EIS for video stabilization.

Here are a few camera samples for your reference. I liked the camera but I need more time for full review. I will bring full review soon.

The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back and it is really fast and accurate. It also supports Face Unlock that is accurate but takes approx 2 seconds to unlock.

The audio experience of this phone is also excellent. It has 5 magnet speaker with NXP SmartAMP. It is loud enough to enjoy videos without any speaker.

It is dual SIM phone and both slots support 4G LTE. Other connectivity options include WiFI, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and micro USB. The company could give USB Type-C in place of micro USB.

The phone packs 5000 mAh battery that should easily last for more than 2 days I regular usage. It comes with 10 W charger. I will tell you about the battery life in the final review. So stay tuned and follow us on different social media channel if you don’t want to miss the review.

This was not the full review, but an impression of the phone based on short usage. This phone looks impressive in terms of both design and specs. I am still using the phone to know more about its performance, camera and battery. The final review will be live in 3-4 days.
