Florian Wimmer (traduzione a cura di G. De Luca), 01/11/2017

Long battery life, limited performance. Asus' Zenfone 3 Max wants to impress with its high-capacity battery and satisfy all runtime-junkies. They will, however, have to make compromises in other aspects as our test shows.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 57 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 6262 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Tempi di risposta del Display

I tempi di risposta del display mostrano quanto sia veloce lo schermo a cambaire da un colore all'altro. Tempi di risposta lenti poccono creare sovrapposizioni negloi oggetti in movimento. Specialmente i giocatori patiti del 3D dovrebbero usare uno schermo con rempi di risposta bassi.

Lo schermo mostra tempi di risposta lenti nei nostri tests e sarà insoddisfacente per i gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 97 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (26.7 ms).

In review: Asus Zenfone 3 Max. Review sample courtesy of Asus Germany.

Asus' Zenfone 3 Max keeps its most important promise: Its battery life is really extremely long. As pleasing as this is, we have to say that LG's X Power even surpasses its runtime. We like the review sample's casing; it is very high-quality for this price range, but it does not stand out from the masses of smartphones. More positive qualities are found in the decent screen, low idle power consumption and low temperature development.

We did not like the performance as much. The device is a bit slower than its competitors in all aspects. Perhaps this is due to Asus' ZenUI interface? The device is only conditionally suitable for 3D games, but more sophisticated websites could also be a problem.

The Zenfone 3 Max offers a good memory configuration for this price range, can handle two SIM cards, and it is light and slim. The handset will be a good deal for everyone mainly focusing on battery life.

Compared with its direct predecessor, the Zenfone Max, our review sample does many things better, but it has lost some of its runtime. Asus' Zenfone 3 Max is a successful update and seen on its own it is primarily suitable for runtime-junkies. Everyone else will have to make compromises in camera, speaker, and call quality. But this is not unusual in this price range.

Nota: si tratta di una recensione breve, con alcune sezioni non tradotte, per la versione integrale in inglese guardate qui.
