Asus Zen­fone 4 Selfie Pro


T3 India - - HYPE -

Selfie Pro? These names I tell you...

Asus wants you to be a pro­fes­sional selfie taker. With new phones get­ting launched vir­tu­ally ev­ery­day, good names are in­creas­ingly harder to find.

Can’t ar­gue with you there. So tell me about the star of the show.

The 24MP dual front cam­era setup is ac­tu­ally a 12MPx2 DuoPixel unit with f/1.8 aper­ture and soft­light LED flash while the sec­ondary is a 120 de­gree wide an­gle lens. The Asus Su­perPixel en­gine in­tel­li­gently con­trols light sen­si­tiv­ity and re­duces im­age noise ev­i­dent in low light con­di­tions. Bokeh self­ies can also be taken and the selfie mas­ter app fur­ther al­lows you beau­tify and edit your snaps.

Did the rear cam­era not re­ceive any at­ten­tion?

It did and is pretty ca­pa­ble in it’s own right. The 16MP rear cam­era has 80 de­gree field of view and LED real tone flash. It can record elec­tron­i­cally sta­bilised 1080p or 4K UHD videos as well as shoot pro­fes­sional RAW files.

Look­ing at those clicks is al­most al­ways de­cep­tive on a mo­bile screen.

The AMOLED dis­play with 500 nits bright­ness will specif­i­cally be a big help here. It of­fers sharp colour re­pro­duc­tion as well as great vis­i­bil­ity un­der di­rect sunlight. Users can also ad­just the colour tem­per­a­ture, tog­gle the blue light fil­ter and more un­der the screen colour mode.

I sin­cerely hope Asus has done some­thing about ZenUI.

Asus heard loud and clear the neg­a­tive feed­back which has re­sulted in cut­ting down the bloat­ware and stream­lin­ing of the new ZenUI 4.0. As op­posed to the 35 (!) pre-in­stalled apps from be­fore, now it comes with only 13 of them.

Oh my god. I just can’t be­lieve this!

Wait till you hear how per­for­mance has been boosted from 34-61% in open­ing those apps. New fea­tures like Twin Apps let users ac­cess two so­cial me­dia ac­counts on a sin­gle de­vice. The new Gallery can or­gan­ise user pho­tos us­ing fa­cial recog­ni­tion and groups can also be cre­ated to sort them on the ba­sis of friends or fam­ily.

The smart­phone is pow­ered by the pop­u­lar Snap­dragon 625 which also pow­ered many of the older Zen­fone 3 mod­els
