ASUS has ended the year 2018 exceptionally good with the launch of mid-range powerful smartphones – the ASUS Zenfone Max M2 and the Max Pro M2 variants. The larger Max Pro M2 featured a 6.26-inch screen, and it is equipped with a Snapdragon 660 SoC alongside Adreno 512 GPU. It has shipped with Android 8.1 Oreo-based software under company’s stock Android Experience out-of-the-box. We have used the larger Zenfone Max Pro M2 variant for quite a while now and here are the prominent Top Tips & Tricks of this mid-range smartphone.
Get 100GB of Google Drive storage

Gestures have been become the new norm in interacting with your smartphone for a while now. The Zenfone Max Pro also has them, which can be enabled in System Settings of the M2. By enabling, users can double-tap the screen to either turn on/off the screen, which is certainly useful for glancing at your notifications.
Adjusting Display Colour Temperature
With the new Zenfone Max Pro, users can toggle their phone’s display color settings as per their individual preferences. What this means is, users can make their display look more warmer or cooler by adjusting the screen color settings on the M2 display settings.

This can be enabled manually by toggling the depth effect in the camera interface, which eventually blurs the background and creates the bokeh effect.

Apart from the conventional fingerprint sensor, which is fast, the Zenfone Max users can also utilize their face for authentication. Users can add their face in Settings – Security & Location – Face Unlock – Registering new face.
