Design

Similar to the Zenfone 3 range devices, the Asus Zenfone 3 Max features a metal unibody and edged curves for good handling. The device comes with a 5.5inch FHD Display. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top, and a fingerprint scanner at the backside. There are three capacitive buttons on the front side of the device, but they’re not backlit, making them a little difficult to use in the dark. There are two LED sensors; one at the top and other below the surface of the front side of the device. The phone is just 8.3mm thick and weighs 175g. The ZenFone 3 Max also has a much better screen-to-body ratio of 73 percent.

Specifications

The ZenFone 3 Max has some other notable differences while comparing it to the Zenfone 3 and one of the main difference is that the Zenfone 3 Max features the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC. The Zenfone 3 Max comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable by up to 128GB using a microSD card) and 4G LTE with VoLTE.

The Asus ZenFone 3 Max runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, with the Zen UI OS. The device runs on a power packed 4100mAH battery which can easily last for a day or two on an average usage. Though the device is compatible of the Quick Charge, Asus made it come with a slow bundled charger which is one of the biggest drawbacks of the device.

Performance

TH Zenfone 3 max comes with a fairly moderate processor, the Snapdragon 430. This becomes a bottleneck for the whole phone as it is not a very capable processor. If you are buying this phone to play some high definition games or similar then please look elsewhere. In the time I used the phone, I didn’t face any lag or even lack of power as My daily use comprises of phone calls, surfing, watching youtube videos and a=some 2D games. If you aren’t a gamer and would be playing some small games on the way to commute then this can exceed your expectations on that. Snapdragon 430 is very power efficient processor and this is the main reason why Asus chose this over any high-end processor say Snapdragon 652.

There is no use of benchmarks as we already know the results but still.

Camera

The rear camera is a 16MP f/2.0 unit with PDAF and Laser-assist focussing. It also features EIS, a super-resolution mode, HDR, low-light mode, etc. Asus claimed that the device’s camera can focus within 0.03 seconds but in real life its nowhere near 0.03s. Maybe 1 or 2 seconds. The pictures shot in good lighting is sharp and clear. The dynamic range of the phone is also good and can easily transform from dark to a lighter background.

Asus Zenfone 3 Max- Battery

The Zenfone 3 Max has a really impressive battery and this is where the phone rocks. The 4100mAH battery can easily last up to 48hours on an average usage. The device can also be used as a portable power bank, the Zenfone Max 3 can charge other devices with the reverse OTG Method and an OTG cable is also given in the box to make things go easy.

Asus Zenfone 3 Max- Price and Verdict

The Asus Zenfone 3 Max costs Rs. 17,999 in India. This phone is not for everyone. If you often travel especially on long tours then this if for you. If you are fed up of carrying a power bank every time you go out as your phone battery dies then this phone is for you.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 6t

Published

on

Yesterday I was checking comments on of our article on OnePlus 6t and ALmost every other comment was mentioning about the issue they were facing on their OnePlus 6t US version. So I researched a bit more about the same topic and what I found was that there does really exist some issues with the bluetooth on these new OnePlus phones. I was trying to find the solution for this bluetooth issue with OnePlus phones since then and I think finally I have the solution. So today we will see how you can fix the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6t. There can be different methods but I will be showing you the most robust yet the most simplest one.

How to – Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6/ 6t

Method 1

OnePlus even though is growing at an exponential rate is still not even near to the software teams of Apple or Samsung. The Oxygen OS is one of the lightest ROM you can find on a phone and it works well most of the time, but sometimes it is not perfect as it should be. The OS itself has some bugs related to Bluetooth that can only be fixed by a system update that has to be done by OnePlus. The same is also discussed on its own forum here. So, does this means that we have to live like it is? well, not at all! There are a few workarounds which we will tell you here.

Most of the problems in Oxygen OS can be fixed with a simple restart and the same goes with this issue as well. A simple restart will most probably fix this issue. Yup, it does sound naive but go ahead and restart your phone. This will solve most of your problems on your phone.

Now what I’ll suggest is to bookmark this page and if you still get the same issue in future then come back and read the method 2.

Method 2 – Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 /6t

So the restart didn’t help, well, no issues. Just empty your cache and the problem should no longer occur again for a while. So how to wipe your cache? There are two methods and I’ll suggest you to do both.

  1. Open Settings – Storage & memory and scroll down to find Cache data. Tap on it and press OK to clear the cached data.
  2. Now, wipe the cache partition from the recovery menu.
    • Turn off the OnePlus 6/6t, and then press and hold the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously.
    • Release the Power button when the OnePlus logo appears, but continue to hold the Volume Up
    • On the Android recovery screen, use the Volume Down button to navigate down to wipe cache partition and press the Power button to select it.
    • Use the Volume Down button to select Yes — delete all user data, and then press the Power button to confirm.
    • Wait for the reset to finish and press the Power button when prompted with the message to Reboot system now.

Now just use your phone and connect to bluetooth devices and it should not get disconnected at all.

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience. It features the latest, most powerful platform, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with up to 8GB of RAM that creates an experience that continues to set the standard for performance.

If you are still facing the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 then let us know and we will forward it to OnePlus!
