Intro

Yep – you read that right. This is the review of the non-Pro version in the latest iteration of the ZenFone Max series – the (M2). This is a smartphone that essentially is the real replacement of the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) that we reviewed here, but with a few different changes although with the same price.

Is the ASUS ZenFone Max (M2) worth your money? Check out in this – hopefully short – review here. And we’ll be comparing with the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) since it is priced the same. Spoiler – it is not worth your money.

Unboxing

Once I got my hands on the ASUS ZenFone Max (M2), the box itself is nearly identical to the ZenFone Max Pro (M2) that we reviewed here. Still, I have no idea what’s up with that lightning bolt.

Behind the box we can see the quick summary of the specs of the ASUS ZenFone Max (M2) alongside with the color of the phone at the bottom right corner.

Opening up the box, we were greeted with the accessories box right away. The phone, charger, micro USB cable, and earphones are inside the box itself.

The phone does come with a TPU case as well – which seems to be the norm these days.
