New update for the Asus Zenfone 3 Max makes its 4,100 mAh battery even better

Asus is in the process of rolling out a new OTA update for its battery phone – the Zenfone 3 Max. Owners of the device will be happy to know that the the latest patch is rather substantial, as it includes a new app plus optimizations in several key areas.

Perhaps the most notable feature coming with the patch (version is the addition of ASUS Power Master, a new battery saving app, which will improve the time between charges for the already impressive 4,100 mAh power cell on the device. The update also contains optimizations for the touch panel display, camera, and fingerprint sensor of the Zenfone 3 Max.

Finally, the PLMN ID list and LED notification effects (while charging) have been updated, while a “customer service call issue in Italy” has also been resolved.

It might take up to a week for the patch notification to pop up on your screen, so if you wish to update manually now, you can do so by going to Settings → About → System update.

Size doesn't matter, its how you use it. Good to see Asus can use it quite well lol.

Yay, but the great battery life is mostly due to the Snapdragon 430 in the Zenfone 3 Max... Cortex-A53 is pretty much the embodiment of the word 'efficient' in a hardware form factor!

Virtually the same dimensions and weight as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with same size battery. However, the latest Note 4 version has SD 625 versus the 3 Max with only SD 430. The MT version was 175 grams but the SD 625 one is 10 grams lighter. (I'm assuming this is about the 5.5 inch Zenfone 3 Max. There is a 5.2 one with the same name it seems!

I don't suppose PA will run a before and after battery test?
