ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser: My amazing lifestyle buddy

In this very advanced and digital world, innovation and recreation are the bywords. And for most of us, to cope up with everything that's happening around, we subconsciously search for more. What I mean is that, life is a continuous learning process, so for us, we crave for more, we want almost everything, we wish and hope for more, we always look for something that would best fit our lifestyle. 

Therefore, we seek what we know would satisfy our taste, our level and those things that would matter to us with almost everything that we do, and it should also be something or anything that we can label as our Lifestyle. 

As a full-time mom and a blogger, who's also active in social media (as they say), it is a must, and a viable requirement to possess a mobile phone which is very durable, user-friendly, high-tech, upgraded, very dependable and has an amazing camera specs. For me, those attributes should come in first before I consider its display and design. 

Fortunately, those attributes that I've mentioned above were rolled into one! The modern display, build and design come as plus factors for me, (thank God!). And very timely as it may seem, my former mobile phone, (which I opted not to mention the brand), was slowly and gracefully waving goodbye to its owner. I guess it has reached its maximum and optimum function, Well, can't thank enough since it has also been my buddy for several months. 

So now, I am facing another chapter of my life, with this brand new and so hot item, as hot as its color, the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser or otherwise known as ZE500KL as its Model Name. ZenFone 2 Laser has a 5.0" HD (720x1280p) screen with Lollipop as its operating system (OS), It has a 2GB RAM with a Quad-core processor (1.2 GHz), has an expandable memory (micro SD) of up to 128GB, has a dual sim that allows 3G and LTE network (cool!), with an internal storage of 16GB, has a removable 2070mAH Prismatic battery. And for all the eager-to-know the specs of the cams, well, the rear cam has an aperture of 8MP while the front has 5MP. And last but definitely not the least, (brace yourselves!)... this is gonna be great, promise... ASUS has come up with an IPS display and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which makes the entire mobile fone, durable, aren't you excited?!

Well, I am, isn't it so obvious? You see, being a person who's always busy and on the go, neither I or not anyone else can ever cause harm or scratch my latest lifestyle buddy. I cannot feel more secure with my mobile phone than today, You see, I don't really have to place a screen protector on my phone. That's so absolutely and amazingly tough! Definitely, a marvel of craftsmanship and engineering at the palm of every happy user. 

Since I am now mentioning about how excited I am, just wanna share you the very first moments of my encounter with the amazing ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser. Take note, I availed the "Mini-movie" feature of this model, via the slideshow while I'm UNBOXING!!!

Did you enjoy watching? I hope so.. well, to give you a glimpse of what I did to test the its durability, I wanna show you this brief video, you'll be surprised! 

See what I mean?

I used my main key on testing my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser screen in an attempt to somehow put a scratch on it or cause minimal damage to it, but I technically failed, were you able to see it? You see at first, I was very hesitant to do it and I guess it's a normal reaction, right?! But in order to prove to all of you my dear amazing readers and of course to myself as well, I've conditioned my mind in performing this act. And it turned out that it is really an incomparable mobile phone! It cannot be easily compromised. 

In addition, have you also noticed the sensitive and quick response of the gadget when I did the double tap on its screen? Definitely, there's no lag feeling when you click or tap on the icon or when you drag it along the screen simply because, it is the quickest compare to most Android phones that are 80 or 100 millisecond in response time. Truly, ZenFone 2 Laser is one of the quickest with a record-breaking touch response time of just 60ms!!!


Look how thin and sleek this ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is! Its thinnest edge measures 3.9mm. 

It doesn't easily slip from our hands, promise! And accountable to that, is its ergonomic arc design, with its curved back aside from the fact that it's thin. It is designed to comfortable fit our palm for ultimate comfort without sacrificing style- the back cover features an exquisite hairline design with a metallic finish. 

Being a real foodie and admirer of different cuisines, the first shot I made using the rear cam of ASUS ZenFone Laser 2, was this...

I made a shot of this "Lechong Paksiw" using the "Depth of Field" rear cam setting of ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser

It's my family's fave  (and me) since most of us, Filipinos are really fond of this dish which derives from roasted pork. 

Creamy Pesto with Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Auto-Focus)

Sumptuous Beef Caldereta (Depth of Field)

Need I say more? The pictures speak for themselves, and the message goes to your responsive eyes down to your tummy! 

Normally, I do love to bond with my family. And I took the chance of testing the camera phone of ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser in an outdoor setting. We went to Blue Bay Walk located in EDSA, Pasay City. 

Outdoor shot of the plants using the Auto mode

I took this shot from the same place where I was standing but this time, I used the "Depth of Field" of the rear camera mode. 

Checking up on the three consecutive pictures above, I was able to zoom in and get the screenshots of the subjects using same photo. Notice how lucid, detailed, clear and amazing these photos are? With ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser, we'll never experience pixelation even in its maximum and closest range when we zoomed in. 

I also took different shots using various rear camera mode so that you can also 

Auto Focus mode

The time and mood when I took these shots was around 4:30 in the afternoon and the weather was gloomy and it was about to rain, FYI. 

HDR mode

Super Resolution

This shot was taken in an auto focus mode, and in reality, there was hardly any light that hits this area

When I changed the camera mode into low light, this was it! The bushes were much clearer and we can aptly identify the colors. nice right?!

I'll now transfer you to another location. This time, it was the Christmas tree lighting that was held more than a week ago at the Araneta Center in Cubao. Still, it was a night setting but much more challenging and yet very colorful!

Christmas tree lighting at the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. I used the Auto Focus mode.

It was a very astonishing, glittery and sparkling night! See the fireworks? It was perfectly captured by the rear cam, in spite of the fact that the subject was in motion. So love this! 

Ms. Korina Sanchez took time to have her photo taken with these kids during the Christmas tree lighting., The Auto Focus mode was still on. 

The Bb. Pilipinas 2015 winners were also present during the event. Can you see the colors in this pic? Very precise and detailed right?!

Everything was fast-paced during that night, good thing, I have my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser  with me, I was able to capture every candid moment. I was able to #SeeWhatOthersCantSee again through these photos that I've taken, I really feel so lucky!!!

Next stop, is the very successful anniversary of one of the biggest agricultural conglomerates in the Philippines, it was held the the Quezon Memorial Circle. Take a closer look at the two pictures below. Noticed that they were performing a dance number, 

They were also facing the sunset that time, so I opted to use of the Auto Focus, since the light coming from the sun was still helpful; anyway, natural light is always the best in photography. It was also very evident in the two pictures that my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser was able to capture and elicit very clear-cut images of the performers despite their active and rapid moves. 

You wanna know the technical reason for all these? Well, basically ZenFone 2 Laser is the first phone in the price range (so affordable!) to have an 8-megapixel rear camera guided with a laser auto-focus. It also has a dual-LED real tone flash and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. 

The f/2.0-aperture Toshiba lens manages to focus the subject in a snap and therefore delivering shots with excellent details, saturation and contrast level in day-light conditions. The combination of the excellence hardware and software truly delivers the best in class camera solutions. 

Another incredible attribute of ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is its 0.03 second Laser Auto Focus. Its rear cam has laser auto focus technology for the fastest clarity, ZenFone 2 Laser's infrared laser measures distances at lightning speed-- and that means near-instant focus as fast as only 0.03 seconds. 

If we compare it with traditional contrast focus, ZenFone 2 Laser is easily in the lead by up to 2 times faster speed, the infrared laser gets the most accurate distance of the object and the lens simply accelerate itself to the precise position for the imaging, whereas traditional focus need to detect the sharpness of the photo frame by frame hence the lens needs to travel and unnecessary distance that slows down the focusing time. 

Okay, nuff of those techie matters.You know, I just can't control myself not to share with you two of the photos taken during the "Festival of Lights" held in Ayala, Makati City.I guess you've also heard about this annual festivity wherein there's a display of wide varieties of Christmas lights that may appear to be dancing along with the beat of the symphony of Christmas Carols; this only takes place during the second week of November 'til first week of January of the following year. 

This year, they made use of lasers too to add attraction, fun and visual satisfaction for all the visitors who'd come and bond there every night. 

The first frame (selfie) is also in Auto-Focus  mode while frame below it  I used the front cam via "Beautification" mode. It provides skin softening, skin brightening, blush, eyes enhance, cheek thinning and color correction.

This is the display for the "Beautification" mode

One of my fave features for this camera phone is its automatic countdown shutter, aside that it is indeed a pink shutter, it provides easy maneuver for the users especially when getting ready for a "selfie" or "groupfie" shot. The maximum timer would be until 5 seconds. The rear key can also be used when taking a selfie shot. Are you ready? SMILE! 

Indoor setting via Auto Focus. Welcome to my living room! 

with the "It Girls" during "Bestie" event in Eastwood

I know, I know, that's  supermodel Georgina Wilson and her bestie, sultry and gorgeous actress/ model/ singer  Solenn Heussaff , we are that close, you know  hahaha! But seriously, girl, am so glad about the outcome of our pic. This is so crystal clear and well-defined. ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser camera has really delivered and portrayed its real worth. 

I also wanna share with you the sound and video recorded using my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 

One hand Operation

Sometimes, during our most busiest days, we tend to just hold our mobile phones either by our left or right hand only while the other is also busy doing something. You see, ASUS has come up with the idea to include in their mobile phone's features the "One Hand Operation." Bright idea, right? In this way, we could somehow maneuver our phone with ease. 


Hey you, IG lovers. IGrammers, and grid addicts, you don't have to install a photo editor or grid app if you're eyeing to purchase ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser! It provide high quality collage templates including magazine page, postcard, poster, album, CD cover, and many more to unleash your creativity.
