Should You Buy?

Asus created quite a stir with its Zenfone Max Pro M1 & it is still one of the best phones for its price. The Asus Zenfone Max M1 has also got a quite similar name but unfortunately, it doesn’t stand close to its competitors. It has surely got a big battery with very good backup but it comes with an old processor, although it is not a bad one & can still handle games like PUBG at low settings, the competition offers a lot more here. It has got a decent display, looks good & is comfortable to hold but it has a plastic body. In the camera department also, it is decent but there is a lot better at this price. Our honest opinion is, you can buy it during its initial festive launch period discounted price of Rs. 7,499 but not at its original price of Rs. 8,999.
