Asus Max Pro M2

https://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/feature-asus-zenfone-max-pro-m2-has-snapdragon-660-5000mah-battery-and-full-hd-display-just-s349

Seems like a good deal, $349 with nfc and everything else you need.

Downside is no usb-c, not very bright screen and no titanium color in Singapore.

Great phone with main downsides to me being the by lack of 5GHz WiFi and the use of microUSB port. But I guess its intentional since if they included these 2, no one would get the Zenfone 5.

Can't seem to find it up until now, anyone got any updates on when it will be available for purchase?

Bought the 6/64 version at JB today. Paid RM999 for it. Comes with free tempered glass SP. No complains on the phone. I love stock android. Not much bloatware,only have IG,FB and Freefire game installed which i promptly disabled all.










In the box comes with clear casing. Default wallpaper.

Near stock android is good enough. Thanks to XDA community I have managed to delete FB, IG and Messenger. Just waiting for root and custom recovery. Then can flash custom rom

Why Asus did not allow users to uninstall them? Like that is very time consuming and also will void the device's warranty.
Bad user experience..
