ASUS ZenFone Max (M1) and Max Plus (M1) receive major discounts

Get ’em while they’re hot

Published

on

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.”

Besides that, the two ZenFones own balanced specs fitting for their segments — including handy takes on dual-camera setups — and have even made appearances on our Best Smartphones lists.

You can learn more in our individual videos for these ZenFones:
