Asus ZenFone 3 Max (ZC553KL) : Price, Review & Specifications.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Max - 5.5

Hello friends, today I'm here with the review of Asus Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL 🙂 I have been reviewing this Zenfone 3 Max from the last 10 days! So I wanna cover all the points here which I reviewed. Let's get Started!

What’s inside the Box of Asus Zenfone 3 Max?

  • Mobile
  • Power Adapter
  • USB cable
  • OTG Cable
  • User Manuals and Warranty Card

Build & Design:

The Asus Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL comes with aluminum unibody with the 2.5 curved glass at the front which makes the smart phone look to look good 🙂 I'm really in love with this 2.5 curved glass feature compared to my RedMi Note 3 mobile!

  • The thickness of this particular Zenfone 3 Max is only 8.3 mm and it's weighing 175 g.
  • It got a fingerprint scanner too to unlock your mobile, apps etc!
  • At top, it got a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a microphone.
  • At bottom , it got a Micro USB and again a microphone.This Zenfone ZC553KL   supports reverse charging feature too via Otg cable
  • on right side, it got a Power key and Volume keys.
  • To Left side, it got a Hybrid sim card Slot.


  • 5.5-inch
  • FHD(1920 x 1080) IPS display
  • 73% screen-to-body ratio
  • 450nits brightness
  • Bluelight Filter for Eye Care
  • 2.5D Contoured Glass

Hardware & Software:


It comes with some great pre-loaded apps in the Zen UI, which I wanna have in all smart phones, for example - in-built Mobile manager! This one helps you to set up smartphone performance and offer battery saving mode, junk remover and RAM Boost.

There are also some other helpful apps provided inbuilt like Movie maker App, Photo Collage app, etc.

  • Coming to performance, I'm satisfied well. But some times I'm facing lags while multi tasking, and also while playing high-end games!



Storage & Connectivity:

This smart phones comes with 3GB of RAM & 32 GB of Internal memory out of which around 24 GB is accessible for user.


Battery Life:

The Asus Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL has 4100 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery which runs around 2-3 days. So far for these 10 days, I haven't faced any issues regarding battery or overheating while playing etc! 🙂

​One more special thing which Asus saying in this Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL is "Reverse Charge mode", well I believe that it's not as useful as they highlighted! it's just a marketing technique! 😛 


Zenfone 3 Max ZC553KL got improved a lot in terms of design and build features compared to previous zenfone mobiles. But in some aspects like multi performance, high-end games, it's lagging a bit. For the Price of ₹17,000 I didn't expected these lags! May be in the next OS updates, it may get solved! So for elders, they can choose this phone but for young generation people, I recommend RedMi Note 4 or Honor 6X!
