Asus Zenfone Zoom Review: DSLR experience in Smartphone!

Are you planning to get yourself a DSLR camera? Now you can have it without having to worry on spending thousands just for a DSLR! The brand new ASUS Zenfone Zoom is exactly what you looking for!

Last week, I attended the Launch event for Asus Zenfone Zoom at Jaypee Palace, in Agra. I am already a user of the Zenfone-2 Laser and I seem to be in awe of these Zenfone series. The theme behind the launch was “See The World Up Close”. For all the lovers of camera and photography, this gadget is surely going to get your hunger satisfied. It comes with the 3x Optical Zoom feature and that is its USP!

Basically, its a camera centric phone with the idea to provide a “pocket size DSLR”! Its 3x Zoom (upto 12x total zoom) lets you see the minutest detail. Also, it has optical image stabilization which enables you to take shake-free photos. The front camera is 5MP and the rear camera is 13 MP. I clicked some of the photos personally to experience the same and here it is…

This picture is of the interiors of one of the tomb in Taj Mahal. I clicked this picture using – Zoom, super resolution and low light mode. It was very dark inside but still then I easily captured the beautiful work done on the walls! Its camera offers various modes like – low light mode to click pictures in dark, maximized 52 MP super resolution mode for perfect clarity, HDR, etc.

Taj Mahal is the white beauty and I thought to play with the phone’s camera and find some creative ways to click Taj’s picture. I have used its very own filters and the sky behind Taj looks amazing! Zenfone Zoom surely enables you to see up-close! For more such amazing photos, you can check my latest photo blog where I have clicked every single photo using this phone.

One of the other features that I find very impressive and useful is its battery. This phone is equipped with the charger which is built with Boost Master fast charging technology and that enables it to charge around 60-65% in just about 40 minutes.

The look of the phone is very classy and elegant with the genuine leather grip. There is no chance of getting any scratch on the screen of your phone as it has Corning Gorilla glass 4 for ultimate protection. So, overall Zenfone Zoom comes as a great package of good looks, performance and durability in terms of its outer body.

ASUS has revolutionalised the phone cameras unlike any other brand and that makes ASUS stand apart from its competitors.
