Asus Zenfone 3 Max (ZC553KL) was launched back in December 2016. The main Highlight of the smartphone is its 4,100 mAh Battery. The Design of the smartphone is impressive, the in-hand feel of the device is great, it felt like a premium device, but after checking out the specs and price….
Vivo V5 the Selfie Expert as we all know and saw in the Advertisements, the Front Camera of the device is actually Great and the device feels like an iPhone!!! (I use iLauncher in it, FuntouchOS is totally clone of iOS). This Device is also priced high at 17,980Rs, check out the specs of both the devices.

The specs of both the devices are entry level, but the UI pretty much handles all the tasks, but if you are a Gamer, these devices are not for you, Zenfone 3 Max may help you a bit with its Battery Backup and with slightly better performance, but still these two devices are not built for gaming.
The display is an important aspect of a smartphone and these two smartphones have decent displays, Asus Zenfone 3 Max have a 1080p Display whereas Vivo V5 have a 720p Display. Check out how the displays perform below.

Asus Zenfone 3 Max have a better display in terms of pixels and also the in terms of pixel count it has a pixel density of 401ppi which results in a vivid and crisp display. Design and display are the two highlights of this smartphone apart from the 4,100mAh Battery.

Vivo V5 doesn’t have a better display on paper but the color reproduction of the camera and the optimized Funtouch OS gets the job done, The display suffers a bit in direct sunlight but it’s easily viewable and readable.
The camera is the essence of Vivo V5 the front cam of Vivo V5 is just Great, it’s the selling point of the device. Whereas the Zenfone 3 Max the Rear Cam of the device is good, pictures come out to be great. Check out the review and camera samples below.

It’s the Selfie expert, selfies come great on this smartphone, colors are vibrant you can see every detail in the shots, accurate colors, exposures, saturation and contrast levels. Overall a great Selfie Experience. Whereas the Rear cam is not so great, it does a great job when clicked in natural lights (under the Sun), but in artificial lighting, it suffers, there are noise in pictures, sometimes over saturated….. (in comparison to Zenfone 3 Max) otherwise this camera is also good for regular photography.

This camera suffers a lot in low light, though. Front camera have an 8MP sensor and it is good, but the pictures come out to be over saturated and Sharp…a lot sharp, but it’s a great Front camera when tweaked according to your needs.
