Asus has recently unveiled Zenfone MaxPlus M1 last Sunday, January16, 2018, at The Atrium Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The Zenfone Max series has been known to have the long battery life amongst not only on all Zenfone models but also with other smartphones.

Here’s a rundown for the Zenfone MaxPlus’ specs:

Before I come up with the full review, I though of doing some benchmark first to have an idea on what to expect with its performance. So, what is benchmarking? Benchmarking is a process in which you are given a test to compare performance of hardware and/or software. I have downloaded some benchmarking apps and here are the results i got.

Antutu Benchmarking

AnTuTu Benchmarking is the defacto performance & gaming benchmarking test on Android. This benchmarking tool gives you an overall score made up of 4 elements; 3D, UX, CPU & RAM by running a multitude of tests including the separately downloadable 3D Benchmarking app.
What makes the app so useful is the massive amount of benchmarking results that they’ve collected over the years as well as their list of the top 50 devices. Once you run the test on your smartphone or tablet you can then select the ranking tab to see how your device compares.

So what makes AnTuTu Benchmarking the go-to benchmark? For one, they’ve partnered with the likes of Samsung, Qualcomm, Intel & Nvidia to help make one of the best of most accurate benchmarking tools available.



Geekbench measures the single-core and multi-core performance of your smartphone or tablet’s CPU to give you an overall benchmark score. But what do the scores mean?
The scores are taken from a baseline score. This baseline score is calibrated to 4000 which is the computing power of the Intel Core I7-6600U. If your smartphone CPU performance is below this, you’ll score lower than 4000 and vice versa.



3D Mark Benchmarking test is created in 1997 as a PC Benchmarking tool, it soon became the industry standard in testing gaming hardware & graphical performance.
More recently they created their free mobile version of their popular CPU & 3D testing software which works by rendering a selection of 3D scenes and physics heavy environments.
The PC Mark app also includes a battery test, whilst the 3D Mark App focusses purely on 3D Benchmarking. Both apps give detailed feedback about the test results and also let you compare your device against others to see how it compares.

Whilst GFX Bench might not be as popular as AnTuTu or PCMark, it still has its positives. As a cross-platform benchmarking tool available to both Android & Windows, it works by rendering a variety of scenes on your Android device and then measuring the average FPS that was achieved during the scene.
This FPS score in then translated into a GFX Benchmark score which you can compare against other devices that have also run the test. The GFX Bench 4.0 render scenes are impressive, from prehistoric jungles to a giant robot attacking a futuristic city there’s a nice variety of tests.
What sets it apart from the competition is that you can see how your smartphone performed in different sections of the scene using the graph afterwards. This lets you see where your device might struggle playing other Android games.



PCMark for Android introduces a fresh approach to benchmarking smartphones and tablets. It measures the performance and battery life of the device as a complete unit rather than a set of isolated components. And its tests are based on common, everyday tasks instead of abstract algorithms.

obviously, there shouldn't be much of a difference with Zenfone Max 4.. only the cameras and screen display sets them apart from each other.
Nice article! Even I have no ideas with these technicalities, but you made it informative even to us non-techie persons.
