Software update for Zenfone 3 Max (ZC520TL) adds better battery life

Rarely does a software update garner such attention. However the most recent Zenfone 3 Max software update has made headlines.

Asus has created a new app called “ASUS Power Master” which they say will “excel battery performance”. With the MediTek processor inside, this app may bring some help to the battery life. The ZC520TL has a 4,100mAh battery inside but the phone wasn’t reviewed as having outstanding battery life. This new app may do wonders.

There is no word right now on the update coming to the 5.5-inch Zenfone 3 Max, but it’s most likely. We will update as news unfolds.
