    According sa Source, this uses Snapdragon 430, ano ang totoo? Plus mukhang may Laser Focus, pero dun sa specs, wala. hahaha.. ano ba yan..

    Good job Asus. That is truly an upgrade, not update like the previous ZF3 Max, now you’re back in business. Kung Hindi nyo inilabas Ito, sigurado Marami ang magle-left turn sa parating na Lenovo K6 Note. Kindly look at the Specs of the K6 Note, better than previous ZF3 Max at Lower price.

  7. more on Xiaomi redmi note 3 design and specs, except this max has laser AF and snapdragon 430

    Masmaganda kaya camera nito kesa zenfone slefie? Yun selfie pag panorama shot blurry sya lagi. Bad autofocus.

  9. JM says:

    This phone sits between Zenfone 3 Max 5.2″ and Zenfone 3 Laser. so the price should be in between. or probably same price as Zenfone 3 laser, you just have to pick whether to get additional 32gb of internal storage and 1GB or RAM, or the addinional 1,100mah of battery.

    siguro nasa 11-14k tuh due to the bump in specs

  11. Henry says:

    Battery life will be a lot worse than since it’s still a 28nm chipset but they increased the resolution.

  12. ewan says:

    meron nabang gyro sensor to?

  13. WC says:

    Asus continued it confusing naming prevalent in the 2 series. This is almost a zenfone 3 laser Max than it is Max. And the Laser 3 haven’t even been released yet.

  14. Saan store kaya ito available-Asus ZenFone 3 Max ( ZC553KL)?


    Available na ba ito sa mga stores? Pa update naman po kami kung meron na. TIA

  16. EROLD says:

    Good in gaming po to? TIA

  17. Madel says:

    2nd gen 0.03 laser autofocus at RGB din ba to like Zenfone laser?
