The notch is not much wider, unlike the Pixel 3 XL which looks ugly. Talking about the display, it is 19:9 ratio full immersive display so you can watch movies and play games without any problem. The back is though not made of glass but it looks premium as if it is glass and it does not even have fingerprints when you hold it. At the rear side, there is dual camera setup with a LED flash for taking snaps.


The Max Pro M2 has a 6.26 FHD+ display IPS LCD with screen resolution 2280x1080.

However, the Max Pro M2 has got a more powerful processor which is the Snapdragon 660 which works like a beast but sadly it is a bit underclocked at 1.9 GHz.
As the phones have got stock Android so there is nothing to worry about bloatware unlike other UIs so the phones are much faster, smoother and better. Let's talk about the gaming performance of the Max Pro M2 as it has the Snapdragon 660 it can easily handle games like PUBG and Hitman and there are no chances of heating issues as the phone is properly optimized for gaming.
