ZENFONE 3 MAX GAMING AND PERFORMANCE REVIEW
Hi guys this the part-2 of my review series.I will be covering the gaming aspect of the device.First of all a quick look at the spec's of the device:

Device name: ASUS_X00DD  [ZENFONE 3 MAX Z553KL]
SOC- Qualcomm Snapdragon 430. Octa core clocked at 1.4 GHz
RAM- 3GB
GPU- Adreno 550
STORAGE- 32GB Internal, Expandable upto 128GB
Camera-16+8MP
Battery- 4100 MAh
OS- Android marshmallow 6.0.1 with zen UI 3.0


BENCHMARK PERFORMANCE:

ANTUTU BENCHMARK.

I tried the latest version of the benchmark from play store. Installed the 3d benchmark as well.

The test gave out  a score of 44514, which can be considered as a decent score. Good for gaming but may not churn out high fps at full hd rendering (I will cover this later). In the graphic tests the scenes were too laggy mainly because of full HD display.



GEEKBENCH 4


It's a becnchmark dedicated for the sole purpose of stressing out your CPU. The score is not so great as it's way behind flagships. But that's no issue as the device is a "BATTERY PHONE" and not meant for serious gamers.


QUADRANT STANDARD

An all round benchmark. Scores are decent




SESCAPE


A Graphic oriented benchmark which mimicks the surface of the ocean. Its a pretty graphic intensive becnchmark. I have seen many flagship devices also struggle to perform.



NENEAMARK 3D


A well known graphic benchmark.The FPS stayed constant at 60 FPS dropping to 59 or 58 very rarely.

Since there are no graphic settings in this game, i ran the game the way it wanted to.
