As I have mentioned on my last post, I am one of the privileged few who was given a chance to try and review the ASUS Zenfone 2 before everyone else does. I’ve got the ZE551ML unit with 32GB memory.
First let’s take a look at the exterior, it has a slim profile, measuring just 3.9mm at the thinnest edge. This makes it very comfortable to hold. At the back, the Zenfone 2 is made of beautiful metallic hairline finish and has a button just below the camera lens. I find this feature quite impressive because it makes taking selfies and adjusting the volume a breeze. At the front, it features a 1 piece Corning Gorilla Glass 3 making it virtually scratch proof.
Next we look at the camera and the Zenfone 2’s capability in taking photos and videos. The Zenfone 2 boast of having 13 MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture and 5 Element lens and 5 MP front one.
It also has a full Manual mode making it possibly the slimmest DSLR that can fit in your pocket! It is also very good in capturing photos in low light.
It takes surprisingly clear and bright images even without flash. It’s flash is a Dual Led Real Tone Flash, it means that it uses a combination of yellow and white lights to create realistic lighting for your subjects. Those who love making selfies will love this new feature of the Zenfone 2, it has a special wide angle mode which you can use to capture a perfect panoramic selfie up to 140 degrees wide. Now making a group shot with more than 10 of your friends is possible.
Let’s move on to the hardware. This new Zenfone 2 is a powerhouse when it comes to the internal features. It is the world’s first 4gb Smartphone. It also has 64 bit Intel Atom Super Quad Core 22nm processor and a PwerVR 6430 graphics processing unit (GPU).
We tried installing various apps on it and opening them was very fast and smooth. Facebook and Pinterest photos loads quickly as well.
The Zenfone 2 has a 3000mAh battery which on our initial test lasted more than 7 hours while browsing on social media sites and streaming videos. It comes with the unique ASUS /BoostMaster making charging the unit remarkably faster. We charged it initially for just a little over 40 minutes.
This ZE551ML 32GB/4GB RAM/2.3HZ is for sale for Php13,995.
This unit is such a good value for money. I encourage you to check it out for yourself.
