Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Asus got the name Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL and was announced in February 2018 (see all new smartphones 2018). This model is released in the series of smartphones Asus Zenfone.

Smartphone Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL works out of the box under the operating system Android version 8 Oreo. According to our information, this model has not received any updates to the software, and if you want to choose some other smartphone on this version of the OS with support for updates, then look at these smartphones on Android 8 Oreo in our catalog.

In addition the Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. But this model has one weak point — it does not support 5G networks, which can significantly increase the speed of receiving and sending data to the network. If such a requirement for a smartphone is relevant for you today, then we have collected in the catalog all smartphones with support for 5G networks at any price and from different manufacturers.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL. On the front side of the case is located big enough IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 5.5″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 4 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP with a regular lens + 8 MP UltraWide. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate her 4 out of 5.

The frontcamera is also in Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 13 MP with a regular lens. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 4-core on the chipset Snapdragon 425, and there is a version with a different processor 8-core on the chipset Snapdragon 430. RAM 2 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 3 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 16 GB, but there are still options for 32 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Asus Zenfone Max (M1) ZB555KL supports memory cards microSD with the maximum volume 256 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.
