The top rated Android phablet Asus ZenFone Max is on sale on the heels of Easter for just $132, for a price that puts even cheap budget tablets to shame:
Asus ZenFone Max (ZC550KL) is the highest consumer rated phone that Asus has ever produced, which says a lot. And it’s easy to understand why, since there’s never been a quality phone with higher specs at this price, such as a 13MP rear camera with super fast laser auto focus and LED flash, and a 5000 mAh battery capacity, a 100% – 150% higher battery capacity than it’s competitors have. The large battery can even double as a power bank to charge other devices with through USB.
ZenFone Max will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in Q2 2016 but ships with Android 5.0. It has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage with 64GB microSD card support as well as 5GB free lifetime Asus cloud storage (WebStorage).
The 1280 x 720 resolution screen has 450 nits brightness and is protected by a very solid Gorilla Glass 4, while this phone has a 5MP front camera, 802.11 b/g/n W-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, dual SIM support for 4G/3G/2G, and GPS, A-GPS, Glonass, BDS navigation sensors.
