ASUS ZenFone Selfie review

See the Perfect you. ASUS’ catchphrase. Catchy actually. Especially with a phone like this.

If you like taking selfies, pictures, and whatever else it is that you do with a camera, then this phone is for you.

To capture the moment as quickly as possible, the Selfie allows you to take pictures in a snap using ZenMotion gestures. While the screen is turned off, drawing an S on the display will take you straight to the camera’s front-facing picture mode, but if you’d rather use a different gesture, you can easily create one of your own in the settings.

There’s also a treasure trove of 16 additional modes to take advantage of: selfie panorama (for 140-degree angles), auto, manual, HDR, super-resolution, low light, night, depth of field, effect, GIF animation,miniature, time-rewind, smart remove, all smiles, slow-mo, time lapse.

This phone definitely is the BOMB. I’ve stopped using phones running on the android platform, but with this phone, I don’t mind using one again.

This phone’s design is so simple. Which makes it look so cool. Sometimes, overdoing the design of an item can make it look so underwhelming instead of making it look better. In this case, the simpler the design, the better the outcome.
