Currently, the Indian market is experiencing a high number of smartphone competition that too with an affordable price range. And Asus is certainly leading on the top, not just with the affordable smartphones, but also maintaining the high and top-notch quality as well.
We did quite a lot of reviews of Asus smartphones, and Asus literally released at least seven smartphones in the past 12 months. It is truly a remarkable achievement by any brand to do so.
Zenfone Max M2 is another budget smartphone which is in the range of 8-9K INR and comes with lot of features and overall decent gaming experience.

The phone comes with 3GB and 4GB variant with 32GB and 64GB respectively, it supports 4G VoLTE, Wifi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, rear fingerprint scanner. And comes with Android 8.1 and weighs 160 grams.
Now, coming to the design of Zenfone Max M2 is not much different from Max Pro M1, in fact you see both the phones together you’ll hardly be able to recognise which one is which.
The display of the device is 6.26 inches which is quite large compared to other 5-6inch ranging devices.
Sadly, the phone does not come with Gorilla Glass but if you consider the price range and it’s specification, I think one can let go this minor disappointment.
I know in today’s selfie generation, camera quality matters a lot. And I’m not here to disappoint you. The camera comes with 13 f1.8 + 2 MP dual primary camera and 8 MP front.
Now, of course you can’t compare the camera quality with other smartphone devices which have different sensors, camera quality and pixel density. Although you’re not compromising much here looking at the price range of the phone.
The low light shots and depth effect of the camera is certainly not very good, and if you’re a heavy photographer, this phone may not be your best choice.
We did play couple of games with the device. And yes, we played PUBG as well and we didn’t have any problems. The PUBG gaming experience with the device was very smooth.
We kept the settings to medium and the game was running very smoothly. Although after playing for a while, the phone did get a little hot but not much worrisome.
Overall, the gaming experience was much better than I expected it to be. And if you’re buying this phone to play games like PUBG, then it’s the best phone in this range.
If you’re looking for a budget smartphone then surely Asus Zenfone Max M2 is your best shot. Not only it gives you decent gaming experience but also it has long lasting battery. And it can also perform other tasks without breaking a sweat.
