Good cameras too?

For starters, the ZenFone Max Pro M1 is equipped with a dual rear camera set up of a 13MP f/2.2 OV16880 sensor + 5MP depth sensor w/ PDAF and LED flash.

The front facing selfie camera on the other hand is a 8MP f/2.0 w/ 85.5-degree wide-angle lens and softlight LED flash.

The Max Pro M1 is running stock Android 8.0 but the camera app looks dated, basic and is far from the features of competitors or a third party camera app.

How does it perform though?

The ZenFone Max Pro M1 can take decent pictures with detail and contrast images that is comparable to competition in the price range in both selfie and rear cameras.

Although right out of the bat, we feel that the it may struggle with other camera-centric budget phones like the Honor 9 Lite and the OPPO A83.

The colors are saturated and tend to be on the darker shade than they are in real life. Its a stylised look that could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the person.

What we liked is that you can take pictures really close up without losing autofocus. The exact minimum focusing distance wasn't detailed in the specifications.

Where the ZenFone Max Pro M1 falters is low light or dimly lit indoors where the grain is strong, details are lost and there is significant color cast. Again, this is true for selfie and ear cameras.

We'll check it out further in the next few days. Stay tuned for the full review soon!
