As a food and travel blogger, I always carry around a DSLR to take good snaps. And if you have one yourselves, you very well know how heavy these things weigh which sometimes gets a tad annoying and a burden to bring along. There are days when I just want to leave my camera at home and simply use my smartphone when attending an event. But of course, a smartphone has to have an excellent camera to take quality pictures.
I’ve long been satisfied with my smartphone which I have more often than not opted to use over my DSLR for majority of my events as of late. That was until I was able to try the new ASUS Zenfone Selfie.
ASUS invites you to “See the Perfect You” with the Zenfone Selfie. A product that blends fashion, technology and craftsmanship to deliver an unmatched mobile experience.
The ASUS Zenfone Selfie is designed to capture the best possible images of you, your friends and the world around you.
I am no techie person like my husband. But what I can show you here in my own ASUS Zenfone Selfie review and how easy it is to use this device as well as how beautifully it takes photos.
Discovering the ASUS Zenfone Selfie
I am not too keen in taking selfies but when I started using the ASUS Zenfone Selfie, I noticed that I’ve started enjoying a little bit more of it. Too much, I think, that I’ve already created a dedicated selfie album in my personal cloud storage already. Hahaha!
With ASUS Zenfone Selfie’s 13MP front camera, 88-degree wide-angle Largan lens to fit in more people and beautification mode: brighten or soften your skin, balance facial features, etc., selfies or groupfies will no longer be underwhelming and difficult! Say goodbye to dark and grainy selfies from now on.
When you take a selfie, you’ll see several options to customize your look. Play with it until you get your desired effect.
And to capture that moment as fast as possible, the Selfie allows you to take pictures of yourself in an instant using ZenMotion gestures. Just draw an “S” on the display and it will take you straight into the ASUS Zenfone Selfie front-facing camera mode. You may also configure the device to use a different gesture if you wish. It so cool that when you double tap the screen, the phone automatically wakes and opens.
The ASUS Zenfone Selfie takes impressive profile and landscape pictures as well. With its 13mp rear camera, you are always guaranteed incredible images.
I also took a photo of my teacup pomeranian. Look at the amazing details!
And as of late, I have been using the ASUS Zenfone Selfie when taking food shots. I love how the photos give off that somewhat DSLR feel.
True to its name, the ASUS Zenfone Selfie is bringing ASUS’ high-end imaging performance known as PixelMaster 2.0 – to both sides of the phone with a killer combination of top-notch hardware and software to get you amazing images.
Apart from drawing an “S” on the Touch Screen Display, you can draw “W” for browser, “C” for camera, “E” for email and “V” for dialing. You can customize the letters to your apps.
With a 3,000mAh removable battery, the ASUS Zenfone Selfie will last you throughout the day with regular usage.
What I also like about the ASUS Zenfone Selfie is its matte finish on the back and the beautiful form factor which fits snugly on my palm. The volume key can conveniently be controlled from the back of the device. It doubles also as a shutter button when taking a selfie.
