Asus about Apple's Smart Battery Case: "you don't need that extra pack" if you get a ZenFone Max
posted by Florin T. / Dec 10, 2015, 9:06 PM
Asus compares the battery power of the ZenFone Max with the combined battery power of an iPhone and a Smart Battery Case, while saying: "You don’t need that extra pack when you have the maximum power in one." It looks like Asus' 5,000 mAh battery has an advantage, at least on paper, being able to provide 37 hours of talk time, 22 hours of internet use, and 22 hours of video playback (versus 25 hours, 18 hours, and 20 hours that you can get from the iPhone + case duo).
Of course, the ZenFone Max is quite different from an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s, as it runs Android, it's larger, thicker, and features a processor that's usually found inside lower-end devices (Snapdragon 410). The ZenFone Max will also certainly be cheaper than an iPhone, not to mention an iPhone plus a Smart Battery Case (the accessory costs $99).
All in all, this is a comparison that not many will make in real life, but it's (somewhat) fun to see Asus taking this chance to promote the ZenFone Max - which, by the way, should be released soon.

and it's ugly as hell, Apple has some beautiful phone designs like the iPhone 5, then they come up with this crap. They could have designed a much nicer case. Hell they could have added a little more battery, I'm sure iPhone user wouldnt mind a few millimirers more of thinckness

I got a Aukey 20,000mAh battery pack for $30 last month. Worth every penny.

Yo asus, your phone's battery management stinks. I don't know if it's your UI or intel processors but both you and apple need extra battery packs.

Asus can forget abut stealing Apple users, it's just not gonna happen. It's more than just battery life, Apple has the whole kit and kaboodle, and too many businesses cater to its products.

Same thing said about HTC, look how that turned out. Some people will change, most wont. Why don't you let it be their decision since it's their money and their choice?

HTC is not at the same league. HTC customer base in are primarily geeks that like large screen phone, flexible storage and battery solution, remember Desire HD, Sensation XL. HTC don't even understand its customer base and decided to go after Apple customer base with Android. LOL! Therefore the first Android brand to remove microSD, removable battery feature with its unibody design HTC One. That's piss off HTC original fan base and the Apple fan would never ever switch to Android. Other business should realize that it take a lot of marketing prowess to indoctrinates apple fans and a vertical integration of hardware, software and services. Most don't have that ability, only Samsung could but their marketing and software are no where near Apple's borg perfection. Apple marketing and vertical integration is so perfect that no body would make money out of Apple fan base without going thru Apple. A SanDisk Flash Drive with Lightning connector For iPhones cost about $70 for the 64GB while an android version with micro usb only cost $20. Apple pocket more than the cost of the flash drive itself. Ingenious from every business perspectives.

"Why don't you let it be their decision since it's their money and their choice?" Are you sure you're TechieXP1969? The last time I checked you're against iFans buying Apple products because you believe we spend "our" hard-earned money to a sh*tty phone.

Cool, I didn't know the ZenFone Max has a feature to shoot lasers. Nice flagship feature to stop smartphone thefts.
