The entry-level and midrange smartphone segments are getting fiercer than ever. While ASUS doesn’t have anything new to offer lately, the Philippine branch is at least cutting down the prices of a couple of their more popular models.
To be specific, the ZenFone Max (M1) and ZenFone Max Plus (M1) are getting their prices slashed in the Philippines. The former now retails for PhP 8,495 (from PhP 8,995) and the latter is currently going for PhP 8,995 (all the way down from PhP 11,995).
These phones carry the Max label for a reason. Both devices have a battery capacity of 4000mAh or more, making them endurance champs — or in ASUS’ words, “Battery Kings.”
