Zenfone Selfie Review: A Budget Smartphone with Impressive Front Cam
Due to the increasing popularity of selfies (self-shooting photography), many smartphone manufacturers have upped their game by manufacturing smartphones with improved front cameras to allow users to snap great selfies. The Zenfone Selfie mobile is built around the concept of the "Selfie" trend. Here is a breakdown of its specs and features.
Impressive Look and Feel
The Zenfone Selfie retains ASUS Zenfone 2’s design, giving it a similar look and feel. You can still see the distinct concentric circle pattern on its chin, the volume rocker on the back, and the overall styling of the Zenfone 2. However, it also has its own unique features such as its colour and a slightly larger camera lens. Aside from that, it has a hybrid SIM slot which can also serve as a micro-SD slot for more storage.
As for the screen, the Zenfone Selfie mobile is a 5.5-incher with 1080x1920 pixel resolution. With that, it offers sharp, bright, and detailed images. You will also have no issues viewing the device in direct sunlight since it has excellent sunlight legibility and colour reproduction.
The ASUS Zenfone Selfie phone houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that works together with its 3 GB RAM to let you use demanding apps and play graphics intensive games with no issues. Aside from that, it has a 4 GB compatibility, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and micro-SD card support of up to 64 GB. On top of that, it has a 3000 mAh battery that will last up to a full day of use. Although it’s not a high-end device, the Zenfone Selfie is surely one of those devices that are capable of handling many smartphone tasks with ease.
ASUS Zenfone Selfie boasts a 13-MP front snapper that sports f/2.2 aperture and an 88-degree wide angle field of view. It’s also equipped with 5P Largan lenses, Toshiba sensors, bluegrass filters, and dual-tone LED flashes. All these enable the device to produce sharp, detailed, and vibrant selfies with impressive colour reproduction.
When it comes to the rear camera, the Zenfone Selfie does a similar performance to the ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser, shooting impressive images in indoor setting while producing decent outdoor shots. On top of that, it has a quick laser autofocus system that is accurate, making sure you get great focused shots most of the time.
