Asus Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL: 6.26-inch smartphone with S-IPS screen, SiP 1 chipset, 4000 mAh battery and triple camera setup for $375

Are you looking for a triple camera setup without having to break the bank? Then let’s take a closer look at Asus Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL and see what it has to offer.

But before we begin, here’s a quick throwback at Zenfone Max Plus (M2) ZB634KL which was the first to offer the SiP 1 chipset:

  • 6.26-inch Full HD+ S-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2246 pixels, 18.7:9 ratio or ~398 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon SiP 1 chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 3GB RAM
  • Dual primary camera: 12MP with f/1.8 aperture, 1/2.9", 1.25μm and PDAF + 5MP with f/2.4 aperture, 1.12µm, depth sensor, LED flash, HDR and panorama
  • 8MP selfie camera with LED flash
  • 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 512GB maximum
  • Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • March 2019 release date
  • 1,299 Brazilian Lira or ~335 USD price tag

Zenfone Max Max Plus (M2) ZB634KL is a good step-up for previous users by featuring a large 6.3-inch Full HD IPS screen, good mid-range hardware, dual 12MP+5MP primary camera, good 8MP selfie camera and a 4000 mAh battery to boot.

Now then, where does that leaves us with the Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL? Here we go with its specs:

  • 6.26-inch Full HD+ S-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2246 pixels, 18.7:9 ratio or ~398 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon SiP 1 chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 4GB RAM
  • Triple primary camera: 12MP with f/1.8 aperture, 1/2.9", 1.25μm and PDAF + 8MP with 13mm (ultrawide) + 5MP with f/2.4 aperture, 1.12µm, depth sensor, LED flash, HDR and panorama
  • 8MP selfie camera with LED flash
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 1TB maximum
  • Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • March 2019 release date
  • 1,529 Brazilian Lira or ~375 USD price tag

As you can see, there is some subtle differences between the two – and the question begs whether the price increase is justified.

Although the Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL sports a similar 6.26-inch Full HD+ S-IPS LCD and hardware, it does have an additional 1GB RAM making it a total of 4GB. This should prove to be beneficial as you perform lots of multi-tasking on the smartphone.

Secondly, the triple primary camera setup is the current rage right now in the industry, and everyone seems to be jumping in on the bandwagon. This is where you can see the Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL shining brightly in this aspect. Not to mention that the 8MP selfie camera still packs a punch.

In terms of storage, the 64GB internal storage is double the capacity and this surely counts a lot for most users. Then again, should you need more space, it can be easily expanded up to a maximum of 1TB via the microSD expansion slot.

To round it up, there’s the 4000 mAh battery which should easily power up the smartphone for a full day of charge.

One drawback though, there’s no Android Pie 9.0 operating system on it. If you can live with that, then you should be fine.

Conclusion:

Asus Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL is for those who can extend their budget by a little bit, and the reward is tremendous. Large 6.26-inch Full HD+ S-IPS LCD screen, decent hardware with 4GB RAM, a triple primary camera setup, large 64GB internal storage and a cool 4000 mAh battery to make the package complete.

Asus Zenfone Max Shot ZB634KL had just been released and is currently available for 1,529 Brazilian Lira or ~375 USD price tag. Numerous colours are available for you to choose from Red, Silver, Blue and Black.
