ASUS ZenFone 2 Selfie Review 2

The ZenFone 2 Selfie is certainly a phone I will keep in mind if I ever wanna get a phone if my focus is on taking selfies and pictures as well and watching movies for its screen size. It is great to play games with too because the screen is big enough but I’m not exactly a gamer. The photos which I took all turned out very well except for low light because most phone cameras are not meant to take pictures under low light, unless you use flash but direct flash will never make a picture pretty.

For my first review, click here.

All pictures below are self-taken and I actually used a camera to take the photos which I took using the phone. I took plenty of examples to showcase pictures under different lighting.

Low light. I was trying to take a photo of my dog wagging its tail happily.

Selfie! I love how the beautify function beautifies us immediately. Say yay to smooth skin!

All pictures are un-edited. No photoshop, no meitu. The pictures quality are definitely great because both the front and back camera is 13 megapixels. For the back camera, it comes with laser auto-focus, as quick as 0.03 seconds and it can focus on what you want to take.

What I like about the phone is that it is affordable. In the market, it is around $200-$300 without a telco contract. Moreover, the phone battery is removable, thus if you ever need to replace, a battery, it is easy and you don’t need to bring a portable charger along with you.

When you need to switch on your camera, all you need to do is to swipe an ‘S’ motion, and your camera will turn on!

The size of the phone is average I would say because I think it really depends on personal preference. Some people like bigger screens while some would probably like it small and sleek to put it into your pocket or a small bag.

For a full charge, it takes about 2.5 hours, so having an extra battery while on the go will help! I think if you’re not a heavy internet user, the phone can last you an entire day without having to charge your phone.

As mentioned in my first post, this phone comes with 3 colours and I’m pretty sure if I’m the one buying, I will have a headache because all the colours are just too pretty. Even if you’re a guy, you can always explore more colours isn’t it? 😛
