Because of the great boom in popularity of selfies (self-shooting photography), many smartphone manufacturers have tried to ante up their smartphones with improved front cameras: From 2 megapixels to 5 megapixels, from a narrow lens to a wide angle lens – many efforts are being put into making selfies better.
The Asus ZenFone Selfie is a smartphone that is built around the very notion and concept of the "Selfie" trend. Asus has taken their incredible ZenFone 2 and then adapted its design to accommodate the incredible dual 13 megapixels front and rear cameras. The front facing 13 megapixel PixelMaster camera of the ZenFone Selfie has an aperture of f/2.2 that's paired with an excellent 88-degree wide angle lens.
With a wide angle lens, you can get more friends and family into the selfie shot (or "groufie"), as well as getting more of the background scenery in – making sure that nothing is left out. Add that with the PixelMaster's technology and the dual Real-Tone LED flash and you've got an excellent camera that's always selfie ready.
Equally Great Rear Camera
The ZenFone Selfie does not forget about the rear camera, as it's also a 13 megapixel PixelMaster camera, but with a larger f/2.0 aperture lens, allowing for greater depth of field and superbshots in low light conditions. The rear and front camera are both engineered with Largan lenses and high quality Toshiba sensors, capturing your photos with greater detail and clarity, as well as replicating all of the natural colors.
The inclusion of a dual Real Tone LED flash ensures that faces and subjects appear as natural as possible in low-light conditions without being washed out by overpowering flashes. The camera also works well
with macro photography, being to get as close as 6 cm to the subject. Let us not forget the laser auto-focus system as well, it focuses in just 0.03 seconds.
ZenMotion, Swipe For Selfie
The Asus ZenFone Selfie smartphone also comes with Asus's ZenMotion feature to help facilitate easier access to your camera for that quick selfie: You just have to swipe. When your ZenFone Selfie is turned off, just swipe an 'S' on its blank display and its front facing PixelMaster camera will spring to action, allowing you to quickly get a great selfie in.
