ASUS ZenPhone MAX Review

Being a blogger, I am constantly on my phone. And even as a regular person, everyone spends a quality amount of time on their smartphones browsing insightful content, sifting through Instagram, checking out what their friends are upto on Facebook, watching videos and movies online or meeting new people on Tinder. Smartphones have become the new 'BFF'. While it is not the greatest news, it is the truth of the 21st century. People are spending more time with their phones than with an actual person or friends and family. But hey, as far as you are using that smartphone to stay connected with your loved ones as well, I am not blaming anyone. In fact, staying away from my family, I myself constantly keep in touch with everyone through calls and whatsapp. 

But isn't it such a headache to charge your phone again and again throughout the day? I personally get fed up of carrying around a power bank everywhere I go. And I am one of those people who panics as soon as the battery hits 20%. So, the new ASUS ZenPhone MAX is practically a boon for me and I am sure once you start using it, you will feel the same.

RECOMMENDATION
I would personally highly recommend it only because of the battery life. The phone is heavier compared to iPhone or Samsung phones and the selfie camera isn't that great but these demerits can  be overlooked if you compare the battery life. However, the selfie camera does have all the beautification features that I talked about in my ASUS Selfie phone HERE. The phone has great features given the price!
