The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the company’s first smartphone to come with stock Android UI. Last year, Xiaomi surprised all of us by launching the Xiaomi Mi A1, an Android One smartphone. Now in 2018, Asus has dropped its own Zen UI in favor of stock UI. With stock Android, the device will be able to get faster Android updates.Asus Launches The ZenFone Max Pro M1 With A Snapdragon 636 & 5000mAh Battery 1
The phone comes with a metallic unibody design with a 2.5D curved glass on the front. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 sports a 5.99-inch FullView display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform featuring custom Kryo cores.

Although,  Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first smartphone to use the Snapdragon 636, the Zenfone 5 unveiled at the MWC 2018 also uses the same chipset. The device comes in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage respectively. There is also a dedicated MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage up to 256GB. On the rear, you  can also find the fingerprint sensor that can unlock the device in just 0.3 seconds.
It also supports facial recognition to unlock the device using Face Unlock. 
For the camera, there are 13MP and 5MP dual rear cameras with f/2.2 aperture and 80-degree wide-angle lens.  Asus also mentioned that the device will support portrait mode for capturing photos with bokeh effect. For selfies, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a single 8MP front-facing camera with LED flash. It comes with triple card slot for adding two nano SIM cards along with a MicroSD card.
Keeping the lights on is a huge 5,000mAh non-removable battery that should last up to a single day of heavy usage. However, the device only supports only up to 5V/2A (10W) power input. Both the power button and volume rocker are placed on the right edge of the device.

The device runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The device comes in Meteor Silver and Deepsea Black color options. Coming to the pricing, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 with 3GB and 4GB of RAM is priced N59,600 and  N70,000 respectively.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 12

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 13

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?

At the moment, Oppo’s SuperVOOC is the fastest wired charger with its 50W speeds at 10V/5A, but Xiaomi is coming up something crazier and different that can charge a dead battery to 100% in just 17 minutes.

Here is a video posted by Xiaomi’s brand president Lin Bin, it shows a phone with 4000mAh battery charged fully in just 17 minutes.

Xiaomi has compared this to OPPO’s 50W (10V/5A) Super VOOC Charging that charges 3700mAh battery up to 65% in 17 minutes.

This was introduced as the world’s fastest smartphone charging tech that can charge the phone up to 92% in 30 minutes.

For comparison, Huawei’s upcoming 55W Super Charge fast charging technology for the Mate X’s 4500mAh battery will need just 35min to fully charge the device.

Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo technology is currently in testing stage and will take some time to reach the market… it will be announce few hours from now at an event.

An interesting move I must say, I feel this is a good innovation. I hope other companies adopt this technology quickly
