    There is a slight mistake in description that you have given that the processor is actually snapdragon 636 (written 836).

    • Aniruddh Jun 12, 2018, 4:12 am

      Hi Rahul,

      Thanks a lot for highlighting the typo error. I have fixed it now.

    How to use screenshot in asus zenfone max pro m1?

    • Saurabh Aug 4, 2018, 3:52 pm

      Please reply someone, how to take screenshots and turning on silent mode

      • Ruata Oct 26, 2018, 8:35 am

        By holding the bottom volume button and power button, you can screenshot it.

        By using the DND icon from the notification panel, you can turn the silent mode. The DND button is like a minus (-) sign inside a circle

    My new Max pro m1 shows the tag “charging slowly” when charging with internet, wifi, location, etc. Turned off. It took around 3 hours to charge from 55 to 80%.
    I am looking forward to have your response soon with a suggestion that, have you faced any issue of such type? Should I keep or get my handset return and purchase a new model or some other product. What do you think?

    Thanks for you help.

    • Tarun Saini Jul 8, 2018, 9:02 am

      The charger provided with the phone is not a “fast charger”. You can use fast charging adapter with the charging cable provided with the phone. I’ve tried this…

    • Chanderdeep verma Jul 30, 2018, 4:22 am

    How to save contact in sim…In second max pro m1

  • Rajendra Khatal Jul 26, 2018, 6:11 am

    It can’t unlock by biometric touch,it need additional pin also

    • Aniruddh Aug 26, 2018, 5:55 pm

      Hi Rajendra,

      When you restart your device, it asks for pin/pattern if you have selected while setting up the device. Please confirm whether it is every time or only when you restart your device.
      Also, check whether you have enabled sim card lock.

  • Vijayan P Oct 23, 2018, 4:57 pm

    I do not find a menu “about phone” in settings of Zenfone Max Pro M1. How do I get the RAM capacity and ROM capacity from the phone menu directly to ensure that my phone does have the designated capacities?

    • Ruata Oct 26, 2018, 8:46 am

      There is. Go to System in the Settings. Inside you’ll find About phone. Go there and find Build number, which you’ll have to tap 7 times to enable Developer Options mode. After you’re told that you’ve enabled the Developer Options, go back and inside the System in the Settings, go to Developer Options. Click on Memory, there you’ll find the memory you have. 😉

      It’s very simple step. Just read carefully& follow it

  • Jay Oct 23, 2018, 6:25 pm

    I purchased the 4 gb version couple of days back. At that time it connected to my wifi but suddenly as of today, the phone is not showing nor connecting to my wifi device even though it is showing other devices. I have tried resetting the network connection but to no avail. I have to only try factory resetting but want to know if any solution is available before doing it.

  • Subhash Nov 11, 2018, 4:05 am

    Excellent information. Thank You Dear Aniruddha. But I can not crop images. and also can not sign or write on images like my Galaxy note 3. Is it possible to do these functions on my Zenfone Max Pro M1 ?

  • Rajgopal Nov 19, 2018, 5:05 pm

    Hi friends. I have the 6gb version of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1. There is no option to save contacts in phone and sim memory. It only shows Google option. Is there any way? If not, then do you know of any app which will help? Thanks.
