The Asus Zenfone 3 Max has a powerful battery life and Gursimran approves of it. He explains that he enjoys listening to his music while capturing shots and using Instagram on the go. Speaking about its high performance battery, he suggests, “Being a power user, I keep all these factors in mind and  always carry a power bank with me so that I do not run out of charge. On the contrary, I was quite shocked by how Asus Zenfone 3 Max performed. It gave me 1.5 days of battery life which is simply incredible.”


After playing with the different modes, Gursimran explains that the Beautification mode allows you to lighten or add colour to faces that you capture. The Super Resolution mode enabled his pictures of the Chai Wala to capture the steam that rose from preparing tea. Alternatively, he used the Manual mode to adapt the ISO for the right amount of light and use the HDR modes to add more definition to his pictures.


In the course of the trip, he was equipped with a high performance and responsive smartphone that captured stunning shots. Since he was on the move, the Asus Zenfone 3 Max with its sleek design was handy and provided a lot of grip for those difficult shots. Considering that he was taking videos and pictures from 6AM to 4PM, watching movies between breaks, navigating Delhi via GPS, his Asus Zenfone 3 Max only consumed 45% of its battery.


Signing off Gursimran exclaims that it’s the perfect smartphone for anyone that loves photography. Why? This is due to its pre-set modes and powerful battery life that enable you capture breath-taking photos with relative ease.
