Been a user of several smartphones for quite some time, I kept on changing my phone every 2-3 years, until I found the right one that I will use it from my activities as a blogger. — ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser.
When I unboxed it few days ago, I immediately tried its functions and also the most-talk about camera which amazed me while taking photos. There are 5 things that I like about this fab smartphone from ASUS.
Amazing results using PixelMaster 2.0 Camera
With a 8-megapixel camera on the back which guided with a laser auto focus, I was really stunned over the pictures that I took yesterday. When I found out that it has Panorama, GIF Animation and Time Lapse feature, I was stoked upon learning it, unlike before that I have to download specific apps for it. Good thing is that I don’t have to edit photos it using photo-enhance app. Great for those who love to take selfies, and into mobile photography like me.
Liked on how I took this video using Time Lapse features from my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser’s PixelMaster 2.0 camera.
2. Great for listening to music and watching videos
When I tried out the sound output of this phone using Spotify, it’s better than the ordinary phones that I used before. I found out that ZenFone 2 Laser’s bass sound is much better than traditional 1 or 3 magnet speakers. Good thing is that it also equipped with Audio Wizard 2.0 which it can adjust your preference in maxing out the volume.
3. Love the Ergonomic Arc design which perfect for carrying the phone without losing a grip. It has 3.5 mm ultra thin edge that stands out to other mobile phones that I’d use before. Sleek and stylish — I love every detail of ZenFone 2 Laser.
4. Customized your phone using ASUS ZenUI
I love its user interface of ASUS because I can customized what I want on my phone such as live wallpapers, different fonts to choose from, fantastic theme designs, and secure my phone using SnapView which I can shield installed apps, photos and files.
5. Amplify using your favorite apps because ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 410 processor. Hope there’s an LTE connection here in my area. This phone has an LTE Category 4 for download speeds up to 150Mbps.
If you’re a Zenfone 5 user, here’s the catch why ZenFone 2 Laser is one of the favorite smartphone today.
