The ASUS ZenFone 3 Max improved some of the aspects from its predecessor, such as its chipset and software. ASUS even updated its aesthetics to match ASUS’s current lineup of ZenFone 3 family. Other than that, ASUS has maintained pretty much the same as before. It’s nice to hold, even nicer to touch, and it felt absolutely premium to the touch.

It has the standard smartphone connectivity – but there’s a little more that we should all know.

Apart from the usual 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and etc., the ZenFone 3 Max comes with a dual-micro SIM card slot. However, just like any other smartphones which I’ve complained before, the ZenFone 3 Max’s second SIM card slot is a microSD combo slot.

I mean, sure – it’s very common for dual-SIM smartphones to share its secondary SIM card slot with the microSD card. You can only choose a second SIM card, or a microSD card. However – given that the ZenFone 3 Max has such a humongous battery capacity, I really wished that ASUS didn’t skimp out on dedicated SIM1, SIM2, and microSD card slot.

It’s meant to provide hours and hours of communication¬†and media consumption without the need of a power bank or a charger. They got it right for the first ever ZenFone Max here, but I have no idea why they opted for the combo slot for the ZenFone 3 Max.

However on other aspects of its connectivity, the¬†ZenFone 3 Max’s fingerprint sensor is pretty quick, sensing and unlocking at about a second or so. In terms of sensing accuracy, I give it an A+ as it’s pretty much on par with the more premium ZenFone 3.

Also, kudos to ASUS for using on-screen buttons instead of capactive buttons.
