Is ASUS Zenfone 4 Max Great for Travelers?

ASUS zenfone 4 max

ASUS Zenfone 4 Max is one of the five models from the recently launched Zenfone 4 smartphones and probably one of the cheapest among others. However, cheap does not quantify the quality because it has a lot of features and specs great for travelers and backpackers. I’ve been using Zenfone 4 Max since August (when it was released) and luckily brought it on my business trip to Singapore. Hence, I was able to test most of its features to its max.

The big question – Is ASUS Zenfone 4 Max great for travelers?

Here are four points to see before answering the big question:

  1. Wide-angle Lens

Zenfone 4 Max equipped with a dual camera tech which is good for photos especially when you’re in transit. One of which is a wide-angle lens which is perfect for taking picture perfect moments and magnificent landscapes and sceneries. It’s like the lens of an action camera is embedded to this powerful smartphone.

With its 120-degree wide angle lens, I was able to capture breathtaking scenes just like in my “sneaky” photo walk in Singapore.

  1. Good performance

This smartphone is built with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor and a 3 GB internal memory which is already good! During my idle times, I play mobile RPGs, like Mobile Legends, and it is running really smoothly!

Not only it is good for games but it is also good for multitasking like opening a lot of apps and switching ‘em from app to app. Zenfone 4 Max does it great!

  1. Big Display!

Zenfone 4 Max is huge! With a display of 5.5 inches, I was able to enjoy more binge-watching videos, vlogs, and movies!

There’s this one time that I went for a solo-camp for meditation then I got bored during the night. Luckily, I was able to save up a movie of my favorite singer, then I watched it all night. Haha! The display and audio were great. Thus, I was able to enjoy more my camping experience. Thanks for the big display!

  1. Long Battery life!

One of the best features of the Zenfone 4 Max is its battery. This smartphone is equipped with a massive 5000 mah battery that could last for a couple of days! Proven and tested!

During my Singapore trip, I made my Zenfone 4 Max a hotspot for my laptop during on-field work and unbelievably it lasted for 2 days. Yes, that’s right! 2 days of mobile data and hotspot turned on without even plugging in the outlet! This smartphone really got a lot of juice stored in this body!

Not only Zenfone 4 Max has a long battery life, but this can be your power bank. Like really? How can smartphones turn into power banks? With ASUS’ reverse charging technology, turning smartphones to power banks was made possible! I was able to test its reverse charging capabilities (because my 10050 mah power bank was junked) during our shoot at one of my video projects and it did perform as expected.


Going back to my question – Is ASUS Zenfone 4 Max great for travelers or EVEN backpackers? My answer is definitely a YES!
