Intro

Today is the day! After teasers and previews from ASUS Malaysia, the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) is finally here! The smartphone that many of us are waiting for – but is it worth the wait?

From what we know, ASUS was originally planning to sell it on the launch day itself (which is today), but in lieu of 0% GST starting 1st June 2018, why not delay another day to lift that 6% burden off from you?

In conjunction of the launch of the ASUS ZenFone 5 on the same day, check out that review as well!

Let’s take a deep dive into what the┬áZenFone Max Pro (M1) is really all about.Unboxing

Surprisingly, the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) comes in a rather simple packaging design. It’s unlike anything what we’ve seen before in the ZenFone Max lineup – simple and clean. It has the same “We Love Photo” logo that was first seen on the ZenFone 4 series. Fun fact: that logo has been tweaked to reflect the vertically stacked camera orientation.

Here we also have a quick unboxing video. The charger was provided to us later as originally, it had a Taiwan charger instead. In whichever the case, you’ll be getting all of these items in the itself when you purchase the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1).

ASUS is quite generous to also include an earphone despite the already-very-affordable price tag on the┬áZenFone Max Pro (M1). The earphone itself however is simply held by a rubber band. Also comes with a total of 3 sets of eartip sizes – S, M, and L.

We forgot to include the charger in this picture!

Here’s the charger, by the way.
