The smartphone supports 4G VoLTE and dual 4G – that is 4G on both SIM cards at the same time. Other connectivity options cover a single-channel Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5 LE and GPS. It supports USB OTG as well, thanks to which we can plug in external USB drives. In comparison to its smaller brother with a poorer equipment, Max Pro M2 has NFC and the Google Pay app.
The smartphone supports two SIM cards and it offers enhancing the quality of calls. There were no problems with coverage, volume or hearing and understanding interlocutors. What is more, both slots can support 4G networks simultaneously and we can choose which card will be responsible for calls, texts and transfer.
Memory and efficiency
After turning the phone for the first time the user is left with 53.44 GB – out of 64GB of memory declared by the manufacturer. There is an option to place a microSD card – and, what is more important, the slot is separate from SIM cards. In addition, Asus offers 100GB for a year for free in the Google Drive service.
ZenFone Max Pro M2 has one of the most popular CPUs in the middle shelf – Snapdragon 660 (Quad 2.2 GHz Kryo 260 + Quad 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 CPU) with Adreno 512 GPU, supported with 6GB of RAM. Thanks to this set we cannot complain about speed, smoothness and efficiency of the device. Its work is impeccable, even when the hardware is pushed to its limits. I did not notice any decrease in efficiency neither when using demanding apps, nor with working with multiple apps or while gaming. There are no problems with overheating as well.
