Second Review of ASUS ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
I had done a recent review of ASUS Zenfone Selfie (ZD551KL), focusing mostly on its selfie functions. Check out the first blogpost at http://elaineheng.blogspot.sg/2015/11/my-secret-to-perfect-selfie-photos-asus.html
I love its apt tagline, “See The Prefect You”, as this smartphone delivers exactly what it promises. With the beautification mode, everyone can take amazing selfies. Isn’t this awesome?
Besides the much raved beautification mode, the actual secret lies in the PixelMaster 2.0! What exactly is this and what does it mean?
Let’s start with ZenMotion… It is actually part of ZenUI, which has an exquisite visual design plus a wide range of new features — including ZenMotion, SnapView, Trend Micro™ Security and ZenUI Instant Updates — that enhance usability, ensure security and privacy, and deliver a seamless user experience. My two favourite features of ZenUI gotta be ZenMotion which I mentioned in my first post on the handphone review and also Snapview which allows me as an entrepreneur to separate work and personal life by independent spaces , with cross space notifications to manage both spheres.
ASUS Zenfone Selfie(ZD551KL) has the most amazing cameras both front and rear. With a full-resolution 13MP right in front of you, with an f/2.2-aperture, five-prism Largan lens with 88-degree, wide-angle framing, and a dual-LED Real Tone flash to create natural lighting, there is no reason why you can’t take a great selfie, which you can post on your social media platforms to show your current or latest look, makeup, hairstyle, mood and etc and keep your friends updated.
ASUS also ensure that the rear camera has an f/2.0 aperture and laser auto-focus for light-speed shots to meet the needs of both amateur or professional photographers. With 4X-sensitivity low-light performance, backlight (Super HDR) mode may brighten darkness and shade by up to 400%, and modes for all moods; anybody can shoot like a pro and snap great selfies everytime!
Another wonderful feature that I like is ASUS ZenFone Selfie’s macro focus right down to 6cm, which allows me to get closer to the subject and show more details than ever before. I was invited to a few food tasting sessions and this handphone definitely came into handy when taking photos of the delicious food.
I promised to share the wonderful discovery with my friends in my previous post so what I did was to go around, asking people to either take selfie of themselves or take selfies with me to test out the camera of the smartphone, as well as some group photos.
