Asus ZenFone MaxHong Kong

Battery life is always a big bother with the majority of the smartphone users worldwide. People will lug around power banks, but those days are over with the Asus ZenFone Max.

Monster Battery? Yep.

The Asus ZenFone Max is one of the rare breeds of smartphones that comes with a massive 5000 mAh lithium-ion battery. The huge battery allows the smartphone to hold a charge for 38 days straight in standby – it's a monster of a battery; that's more than double than most other smartphones. With the ZenFone Max, you won't have to worry about carrying a power bank or a charger anymore, it'll last you through the day and more.

The battery is so large that it can even charge other smartphones too! Just plug in the other smartphone with a USB on-the-go (OTG) cable to the ZenFone Max, and you'll be charged in no time.

Asus Zenfone Max out your use with the powerful internals

A large battery doesn't do much if its got nothing to power, which is why the ZenFone Max comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset that also features 4G LTE connectivity for all your networking needs.

The Snapdragon 410 chipset has an ample processor that's paired with a generous 2GB of RAM – it can tear through most daily tasks and media consumption with ease and efficiency. The Adreno 306 graphics also allows for immersive gaming performance on the gorgeous 5.5 inch HD (720p) display.

LTE connectivity also gives the Asus ZenFone Max faster connectivity of up to 150Mbps. Downloading your apps and music will be a breeze, and your YouTube videos will load so fast you'd think they were stored locally in the smartphone. It's also got 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi so you'll always be with the fast speeds, no matter through 4G or Wi-Fi connectivity.

Gorilla Strong

If you're clumsy, don't worry. The ZenFone Max's gorgeous 5.5" HD display is protected by a layer of the reputable Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Gorilla Glass 4 displays offer twice the resistance to damages from drops, a 2.5x increase of strength and has a much lower chance of breaking in daily use. You won't have to worry about two things with the ZenFone Max: the long battery life and the super strong display.
