Affordable Asus ZenFone 3 Max now available in the US, 4100 mAh battery in tow
If you want a cheap smartphone that packs a generous battery, you may want to check out the Asus ZenFone 3 Max. Amazon just started selling the ZenFone Max for $149, US warranty and free shipping included. This is an unlocked handset that will work on AT&T and T-Mobile, but not on Verizon and Sprint.

Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow customized with Asus' Zen UI 3.0, the ZenFone 3 Max comes with a 4100 mAh battery that provides up to 20 hours of talk time, or up to 18 hours of Wi-Fi web browsing. You can even use this battery as a power bank to charge other devices via microUSB.

Large battery aside, the Asus ZenFone 3 Max is not exactly an impressive smartphone. However, it does have LTE, as well as a fingerprint scanner on the back, next to a 13 MP camera. Other features include a 5.2-inch 720p display, dual SIM support, a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space.

The Asus ZenFone 3 Max also shows up at B&H, but this retailer does not have it in stock yet, instead taking pre-orders for it (asking the same price as Amazon).

Is anyone here tempted to buy the ZenFone 3 Max?
