Zenfone 2: I want it !

Asus has recently revealed the Zenfone 2 and I think it is a masterpiece. They call it "A Marvel of Craftsmanship and Engineering, in the Palm of Your Hand" and I could not agree more. So, let's discuss what makes this phone so amazing.

1) The design: Breathtaking. Amazingly crafted and smart looking, this phone is truly a sight for sore eyes. The machined sharp edges along with 3.9mm thickness really are class apart features. Moreover, the concentric circle design on the front creates a halo kind of effect which is all new and fun.

Not only is the front, the back cover also artfully crafted. ZenFone 2’s back cover is crafted with an exceptional metallic hairline finish which creates an amazing visual effect.

Moreover, it is available in five striking colours- Osmium Black, Sheer Gold, Glacier Gray, Glamour Red and Ceramic White — to reflect your personality and mood along with an ASUS ZenUI theme to match.
Hence, the design is sharp, smart and ergonomic which makes it an apt choice for any use. It encompasses a physical rear key at the back which makes taking selfies, adjusting the volume and retracing one’s steps feel extremely natural and easy.

2) The Processor: ZenFone 2 is powered by an up to 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor and has 4GB RAM. This means that everything happens at lightning fast speed. Now, one can play games, play videos, surf the web and much more without lags and hag ups. Now that is what I call excellent performance!

3)The Camera: The Zenfone 2 packs a 13MP rear-facing camera which takes astounding images, and a 5MP front-facing camera with 85-degree wide-angle lens for razor sharp selfies and crystal clear video chats.
Also, Pixel Master’s Low Light mode captures clear photos or videos throughout the night. Through a combination of adjusting pixel size and advanced image-processing algorithms, ZenFone 2 increases light sensitivity by up to 400%, enhances noise reduction and boosts colour contrast by up to 400%.

ZenFone 2 also has a Super Resolution mode which uses special image-processing techniques to create incredibly-detailed photos. With Super Resolution mode enabled, ZenFone 2 captures and combines four 13MP photos to create a single image with exceptional 4X clarity. Light or dark, you’ll enjoy more detail and less noise — and resolution equivalent to 52MP!

4) Fast Charging: I, for one, am usually running out of battery during the day. My phone spends most of its time attached to a power bank or a charger but the Zenfone 2 comes with a BoostMaster technology which is the ASUS-exclusive technology that charges devices much faster than traditional speeds. With ZenFone 2, this means your battery is charged up to 60% in no more than 39 minutes. That is saying something!

5) The ZenUI: It is snappy, fast and so fun. Bursting with colours, the ZenUI promises a great user experience with features such as ZenMotion, SnapView, Trend Micro™ Security. Also it comes with trendy themes for every mood and allows the user to customize it according to one’s use.

Hence, I think that in the market of old gaudy phones, ZenFone 2 is a breath of fresh air and definitely on the top of my list. I recommend this to anyone who needs life, speed and fun with awesome multi-tasking capacities out of their phone.
