Smartphone with an Edge
Mobile market is flooded with countless products. It's a challenge to pick one. If one phone has a better camera, other has a killer battery backup. If one phone can play clear videos, other has sleek finish. What if, you get a phone which has all the features you are looking for? I think, I will not wait to buy it. Well, I found one such phone - ZenFone 2. I have been hearing about ZenFone for over a year, read tens of reviews, but since I shy away from buying a phone, I never paid much attention. And now that I want to have a phone, I have zeroed in ZenFone 2 for many reasons. Here are its stand out features -
Killer Performance - This phone has 64-bit 2.3GHz Super Quad-Core Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor and a 4GB of dual-channel DDR3 RAM. Now, even if you don’t understand the technicalities, it simply means - you can download faster, it has better touch response time and the clarity is amazing. A moving picture is much more crisp in it as compared to other phones. With 4GB Ram, this phone ensures the best multitasking experience. And yes, videos playing is superb too. In case you have two sims, this phone is empowered with Dual Action technology and you will never miss a call. You can switch between two calls between two numbers - place one on hold to answer another with ease. So, as far as performance goes, it scores high on all fronts. No wonder, it is among the top selling phones in many countries.
Superb Picture and Camera Quality - Besides calling and texting, the other thing we use our phone is as a camera. ZenFone has 13MP PixelMaster front camera and 5MP front camera. It means, you can capture amazing shots and selfies with this phone. Its Low Light Mode takes 400% brighter pictures during night or in less light. What piqued my interest is Auto Mode with Zero Shutter Lag and Dual Flash. With all these features, it is often called ‘DSLR in your hands.’ By the way, the best feature for selfie addicts is its Beautification feature - it allows to touch and glam-up your shots.
Great Looks with Comfort - Metallic looks, slim body and less weight makes this phone a winner in the looks department. ZenFone 2 is a 5.5-inch smartphone, but will feel smaller in your hands. It adds to the comfort while holding it, specially if you have smaller hands like mine. It has a remarkable 72% screen-to-body ratio and gives a better viewing experience. Ergonomic Arc Design with rear control gives ease of operation. The buttons for sound and control are placed for comfort, just in place for index finger making it easier for us to navigate and feel in control. It’s because of all these reasons, ZenFone 2 bagged 2015 iF Design Award. Their Fusion and Illusion Series is quite happening too, with vibrant designs and colors, one will end up making a bold fashion statement.
Bonus Features - Zenfone 2 has Boostmaster Technology with which you can charge it up to 60% in 39 minutes. This feature is a blessing for those who travel and have a busy schedule. Another feature that stands out is ZenMotion - touch, swipe and tap feature to operate the phone; like write C on the screen to open Camera. And Zenfone 2 comes with an array of accessories and themes, making it easy to personalize the experience of using a smartphone. Even with such amazing features, ZenFone is reasonably priced. According to Forbes, ASUS ZenFone is an impressive unlocked flagship device at budget pricing.
