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.

The ZenFone 3 Max features a standard 13MP sensor with f/2.2 lens with only continuous autofocus. This is not far off from the previous ZenFone Max’s 13MP sensor with f/2.0 lens, but obviously the larger aperture number on the ZenFone 3 Max will impact its low-light performance.

To be honest, the camera is quite sub-par. Under low-lit conditions, the camera produces really under-exposed and noisy photos. I can only say that this image is barely acceptable even for social media usage.

Is it worse than the Neffos C5’s camera that we’ve reviewed few months ago? Not really. The Neffos C5’s camera is noisy even when it’s brightly lit, and has a very noticeable cold temperature to its pictures taken. The Zenfone 3 Max has good white balance and less noise, albeit still noisy when compared to other smartphones.
