The latest addition to the big battery phone club in the market is the all new Asus Zenfone 3s Max. The highlighting feature is it’s chunky 5000mAh battery.
Asus Zenfone 3S Max is an all-metal phone with a 5.2-inch HD display that has been topped with a 2.5D contoured glass. On the camera front, Asus Zenfone 3S Max has a 13 megapixel rear camera along with phase detection autofocus.

To sum up, Asus Zenfone 3S Max is phone with the powerhouse of a battery, elegant design and doesn’t disappoint in the camera department too.
If you want to do away with carrying power banks and looking for a compact and sturdy phone within the sub-Rs 15K segment then consider the Asus Zenfone 3s Max.
In the case of the Asus Zenfone 3S Max, there is something special here. In short, it’s not what I expected from a budget smartphone, which will compete with the recently launched Redmi Note 4.
The front reminds me of the Zenfone 3 and the addition of the fingerprint reader on the front of the device is a move I and many others will truly appreciate. The 2.5D contoured glass gives the metallic finished bezel a premium look and also lets your finger glide onto the smartphone when you swipe-in from the edges.
All-in-all I was impressed by the design and build quality of the Zenfone 3S Max, which somehow managed to remain pretty slim despite that massive 5,000mAh battery on the back but the price at which Asus is selling it makes this device a tough sell.
