The ASUS ZenFone Max Plus is by all accounts a budget smartphone. Which does mean of course, it is priced to be as affordable as possible and typically retails from $199.99 to $229.99 depending on where you shop. However, as part of the Amazon Prime Day celebrations, the ZenFone Max Plus can now be picked up for just $149. Making this affordable phone, more affordable than ever.
In spite of the extremely low price, this is a smartphone which verges on the mid-range thanks to its core spec combination of 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a MediaTek MT6750T processor. The display is also on the larger size thanks to the included 5.7-inch "Full View Display" which boasts a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Those more concerned about cameras will be happy to know the low price does include a dual rear camera setup comprised of 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras, as well as another 8-megapixel camera on the front. Some of the other notable features include a fairly significant 4,130 mAh capacity battery, dual-SIM support, microSD card support, 4G LTE support, and Android 7.0 (Nougat) – although it is expected to be updated to Android 8.0 (Oreo) in due course.
So overall, while this phone is now available at a rock-bottom price, it is certainly a more than capable smartphone and does come with a number of current trending features including that dual rear camera setup. It is worth noting this is a GSM phone and so is designed to work on GSM-based networks, such as AT&T and T-Mobile. This is one of those Amazon deals where you will need to add the product to your cart before the low price takes effect. Need some other phone options?
