ASUS Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro | Review

I wrote about ASUS Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro Unboxing two weeks ago and showed you guys how amazing this smartphone is just by looking at its physical appearance and the accessories that comes with it. Now, I’ll be sharing to you guys an in-depth review to further learn what this smartphone has to offer.

DESIGN

I think design of Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is well thought of, it is built to offer a premium look. I love the variety of colors that you can choose from, it comes in three colors: Rouge Red, Deepsea Black and Sunlight Gold. It fits any kind of personality and age; as for me, I’m digging the Rouge Red.

It weighs just at 147 grams with 7 mm thickness. It’s slim and lightweight, and has a good grip. There’s a metal uni body design with a home button housed at the chin of the phone and it’s also used as a fingerprint sensor. The 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass complements the overall design and ensures the display surface is smudge proof.


DISPLAY

Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro comes with a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. The quality of the display offers great viewing angles which is amazing! The icons on the display look superb.

And the colors are full of life!

On the rear panel, there’s a camera beside a LED flash followed by the ASUS branding engraved in the center.

At the top, you’ll see the earpiece speaker, ambient light and proximity sensors. The right hand side has two front cameras and on the left, you’ll see the front-facing soft light flash unit.

Going around the edges, you have the power standby and volume rocker buttons on the right hand side. The volume rocker is a single button, but has a separation in the center for adjusting the volume. The power standby button is below the volume rocker button. The microphone is on the top edge. 

Looking at the left hand side, you get the hybrid dual nano SIM card tray. The bottom edge houses the 3.5 mm jack, microphone, micro USB 2.0 port and the speaker section.

At the bottom, you’ll see the ear phone jack, charger jack and the earpiece speaker.


CAMERA

The highlight of the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is its camera. It has the world’s most advanced front camera system featuring the Sony IMX362 dual pixel image sensor that has twice the number of light-capturing photo diodes as conventional sensors of the same resolution. 24MP DuoPixel camera technology uses the information captured by the sensor to intelligently create one 24MP photo, resulting in beautiful, high-resolution selfies.

It’s funny how I still look fresh in the photo after hiking in a muddy mountain!πŸ˜‚

With its front-facing 120-degree wide-angle camera, it allows you to capture photos and videos that fit more of your environment into the frame, so you can include a scenic background in your shot.

We opted for a group photo, and the scenic background of the Treasure Mountain looked extra awesome!

 

PERFORMANCE

I used the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro during my travels and I didn’t encounter any issues. Even if I’m just on my regular daily routine or in the mountains, it is powerful and fast.

This smartphone has a powerful Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB RAM. It has a 64GB internal storage which is expandable. The device runs on Zen UI 4.0 wrapped around the Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Multitasking is not a problem, and I didn’t experience any lag while switching between apps.

Call quality was excellent and the earpiece speaker is loud enough to hear things clearly.

Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro comes with a 3,000 mAh battery and has a USB charger supporting fast charging. I don’t have to worry about taking photos and videos since the PC Mark for Android showed a time of 8 hours and 43 mins, which is pretty decent.

 

VERDICT

Overall, Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is an awesome smartphone that offers premium features. With its amazing selfie camera, good display and decent battery life, this device is a must buy. Highly recommended for travel bloggers like me!

Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is priced at Php 18,995 in the Philippines. With this feature-rich smartphone, you can assure yourself that it is worth every cent!
