UNBOXING: ‘Battery King’ ZenFone Max M1 [Full specs included]

Taiwanese company ASUS has recently released new mobile phone models that suit different lifestyles and needs of its users. Aside from the latest ZenFone 5 series, they also launched the ZenFone Max M1 – a 5.5-inch phone that boasts of 4,000mAh battery that can last up to 41 days (standby time) – at a very competitive price.

Zenfone Max M1’s box is also wrapped in clear plastic upon purchase (We just removed it ahead).

As a millennial who loves things that make life convenient, we’re definitely considering the Zenfone Max M1 (ZB555KL) over huge powerbanks that carry the same battery power. That’s extra space and lighter bags to carry! With specs that are similar with other Max models, it’s a great deal to have one for just P8,995.

The specifications are listed below, but here’s a peek at the other items that come inside the box:

Sliding out the inner box will reveal the first layer which contains a silicone case and a sim ejector.

It also comes with a user manual and warranty card that is good for 12 months.

You’ll be able to get the phone at the second layer of the box.

In the last partition, you’ll find a USB to Micro USB cable, travel adapter for charging, and earphones.

Three more things to love about the ZenFone Max M1: Fingerprint scanner, dual camera, and a premium metallic finish.
