Asus Zenfone 2 Review
Its also for all those who have been disappointed by the performance lag of their own phone.
In this post I will list out the stand-out features of Asus Zenfone 2 & also the reason I would opt to switch from my current phone to a Zenfone 2.
1. PowerPowered by a 64-bit 2.3GHz Super Quad-Core Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor, Zenfone 2 is the world’s first smart-phone with 4GB of dual-channel DDR3 RAM.
The current phone I am using has 1 GB RAM, resulting into "System memory low" message coming up in the notifications every time I try multitasking.
So yes the 4GB RAM will be a boon for a person like me who is always multitasking with multiple apps running in the background
The Power quotient of the phone is not just limited to the processor and RAM, adding to it's power is 4G LTE advanced technology which offers download speeds up to 250Mbit/s. So yes that would mean with the proper network I could download all the trending apps & games within minutes.
With all those specs, this phone becomes a perfect device for Gamers and what adds to their delight is 60ms touch response time which beats all the other android devices!
2. CameraConsidering the cost one may expect the phone to compromise in this category, but yet again it stands out with 13MP PixelMaster camera, f/2.0-aperture lens and set of interactive modes and features allowing one to click high resolution pictures.
PixelMaster Backlight (Super HDR) mode automatically adjusts the focus points with multiple views thus rendering a final picture with 400% more brightness. Also for low light imaging, the camera is equipped with Low Light mode which increases light sensitivity by up to 400%.
One just doesn't have to stop at taking Selfies, Zenfone 2 will allow Groupies to be taken with combining the selfie and panorama to give a panoramic selfie mode. Covering 140 degrees you can squeeze in as many friends as possible in each pic.
For pro photographers who put a lot of time in mastering every click and don't rely on the auto and programmed modes of the camera, there is Full Manual mode. It transforms the Zenfone 2 into a DSLR with 13 professional settings and controls that one can manually adjust.
My current phone offers a 14MP camera yet it fails to take proper illuminated pics in low light environments and also the front camera lacks the capabilities to click high res photos and thus offers a very poor Selfie experience, thus Zenfone 2 will be a better alternative with both front and back camera being well equipped with all the needed features.
3. DesignOne can choose between being sophisticated to trendy with the choice of colors like Osmium Black, Ceramic White, Sheer Gold, Glacier Gray and Glamour Red.
You could also dress up the phone according to the occasion with readily available cover designs: Transfusion Series & Illusion Series.
At 3.9mm it turns out to be a phone sporting thinnest edge in spite of being powered by a Intel processor. Design doesn't just stop at being classy but is also tough equipped with Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™ (NDR) which improves damage resistance
Though my current phone has a good design, it needs to be protected with a back cover which in turn covers the uniqueness of my phone's design and adds to it's weight and size. In Zenfone 2 I wont have to worry about putting my phone into a cover for protection and even then if I choose to do so, I have a set of trendy covers to choose from which compliments the design of the phone.
4. Battery Backup & ChargingAll this power & efficiency will need equally powerful battery to sustain the device. The Zenfone 2 ensures which with it's high-capacity 3000mAh battery. The charging experience is also enhanced with ZenFone 2‘s exclusive ASUS BoostMaster Technology that can charge your ZenFone 2 up to 60% in no more than 39 minutes. In urgent need, you could just charge your phone for 10 Minutes and limiting the use to chatting Zenfone 2 will sustain for a long 4 hours.
Even though my current phone doesn't disappoint in battery backup it does in terms of charging. Proper 50% charging takes up to 45 mins for my phone and even more now as the battery life has deteriorated further after 1 year. So yes Zenfone 2 with its longer battery backup and boostmaster technology will be a boost to the smart phone experience.
