Although scores on Antutu and Geekbench keeps on varying in every single test but still, when you compare its score with the “Zenfone 3 Max” which was launched in November 2016, it is important to mention that the performance on this new 3S Max has not improved rather it has slightly decreased.

However, while playing games like Fifa 16 Ultimate Team and Modern Strike Multiplayer there was very little difference between the performances of both of these Zenfone Max devices. However, while playing intensive games like Nova 3 or Real Racing 3 you might notice few frame drops as well as lag.
