The Asus Zenfone Max boasts of several amazing things but two things that take the centre stage for us are the enhanced and superior performance and the amazing battery life.

But one thing that does stand out is that the accompanying OTg cable can turn the phone into a charger to power up other gadgets. Now that is one unique and seriously useful feature.
With a 13 megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front camera, this phone is fantastic for those who love to click on the go. With laser autofocus technology, the phone helped us focus on objects super quick!
