Zenfone Max Pro M2 comes with Android 8.1 Oreo but Asus promised that they will provide an Android Pie update in January 2019.
I didn’t encounter with any lagging or stuttering while multi-tasking thanks to the fast processor and stock Android. Zenfone Max Pro M2 has both the fingerprint scanner and the face unlock, a fingerprint scanner is a little bit slow.
Zenfone Max Pro M2 has dual camera setup ay the back with a 12MP primary camera( f/1.8 aperture) and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, the phone has 13MP with a f/2.0 aperture.
There are quick toggles for shooting modes, beautification, the depth effect, and the flash. You also get the option to apply filters right before you take a shot. There is a Pro mode that lets you adjust focus, shutter speed, ISO, exposure, and white balance.
HDR mode still needs some work. It could take care of the brighter areas in a scene, but shots seemed to lack details in the shadows. Low-light camera performance was average, and the phone did not switch to night mode automatically.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 has 5,000mAh of battery which is quite big and Asus claims that it can run for 2 days. By taking some tests we can say that it can easily run for more 35 hours.
when I plug in the charger the phone charges from 0 to 52% within an hour. So, you can easily run this smartphone a day by just charging an hour.
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 has definitely got my attention as it has powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, a big 5000mAh battery and a huge storage space.
The camera of this smartphone is not quite good you can buy Realme 2 pro if you want a smartphone with good camera quality but if Asus provides timely updates as Asus promised then this smartphone can easily give a tough competition to all other mid-range smartphones.
