The other day (August 2018) a relative wanted to upgrade her phone to a new one. Her usage was phone calls, listening to music, video calls and WhatsApp. As a result, the Camera was not a priority, but a good battery life always helps. So I looked for an Android Phone with a good speaker and a lot of storage. I selected Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 (64 GB, 5000 mAh Battery, 13+5MP Camera, 8 MP Front Camera & 4 GB RAM) for Rs.12,499 from Flipkart.
Disclosure: I write reviews about products that I have bought for my usage and paid in full. There were no sponsorship or advertisement, or commission of any sort involved in this post.
The phone is fast, works well and shipped with a stock version of Android. I liked the 5-magnet speaker and microphone; they are loud and clear. At this price point, I will recommend this phone.
Update Feb 2019: Having tried this phone, my wife liked it a lot and wanted one, so I got her the updated version this month. Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 (64 GB, 4 GB RAM) is pretty much the same and works the same, except for a few upgraded specification – a faster Snapdragon 660 Processor, and, 13 MP front camera. At Rs.13,999 this too feels like a good buy.
