ASUS ZenFone 5 - Super affordable and pretty-damn-cool smartphone ♥︎

Sponsored Post

Introducing a fashionably sleek smartphone that produce rather impressive pictures!!! But the MAIN POINT IS.. It is one of the most affordable android smartphone you'd find in the market!

When i was told i'd be given a smartphone to try out and see if i'd like it.. I was like O.O

And then my manager told me i'd like it cox it has really fun camera functions! AND I'M LIKE =DD

Hahaha. Very practical one. I know a good lot of people get smartphone for many reasons, some like user-friendly email platform, some like the phone for awesome picture qualities, some like geeky specs of the phone that i never ever will utilise.

For me a phone has to take decent pictures (NUMBER 1 IMPORTANCE for a camho hahaha), has a calendar / reminder function that is easy to use and yeah lah, the email platform has to be user-friendly. Cox i reply work email a lot on the go, i have to have a phone that is easy to work with!

I'd start with the COOLEST function of the ASUS ZenFone 5!!!

You'd be so freaking amazed hahaha. I was!!! All thanks to PixelMaster developed by ASUS! PixelMaster is a unique ASUS-developed technology that combines software, hardware and optical design to deliver incredible image quality.

You know the thing about camho.. They loveeee to take selfies haha. Anytime, anywhere!
If you think i look a little different from how i look in real life.. You're right! I snapped this picture, with the beautification and facial enhancement features on the ASUS ZenFone 5! I'd tell you what they add-on for me! Bigger eyes, smaller face, smoother + brighter skin, blusher!!! =OOOOO
As step-by-step of the beautification of my picture showed.. The selfie camera on the ASUS ZenFone 5 is just awesome!!! This one was taken in my bedroom by the way. It's a very dimly-lit place cox erm.. Romantic? LOL. By the way.. FML got one major pimple T.T Thank you menses.

ASUS developed the PixelMaster and it comprises of several features! Here's a quick intro video!

Pretty amazing yes?! Some of the features i like are..

This "ALL SMILE" feature is damnnnn cool!!! It burst-snap 5 pictures and then allows you to pick individual best of everyone in the picture!!! So the final picture has everyone looking their best!

The DEPTH OF FIELD!!! Touch wherever you wanna focus on! It makes your pictures look very professionally taken! Perfect for food shot or macro shots like flower and stuff!

And there are plenty more modes to choose from!
These are just some of it.

This is taken with the Night mode! Perfect for night scene / night view!

Smart Remove allows you to remove photobombers hahahaha! Awesome invention really!

And this was taken with Low-Light mode!!! IS THIS FOR REAL?!?!?!?! I swear the one taken with my phone was like how it was in real life. Really is dark until cannot!!! I don't know how the ASUS ZenFone 5 does it!!!

This one was in almost total darkness what the heck. The Low-Light mode is really quite something!

And so many filters and editing tools to use ^.^

So much fun at the camera already! Now a look at the phone itself!

Simple and clean design right from the packaging!

Super slim design! It's only 0.55cm thick!!!! =OOO Freaking slim or what!!! And it only weights 145g..... This phone is anorexic. Hahahaha.

Straightforward, user-friendly and organised homepage! Oh also as you can see here.. The metallic reflection on the phone makes it look even classier but actually it's all a special kind of plastic =X So it's as light as it can get but look as classy as it should be!!!

Click in to find the essential and recommended apps for you! As you can see everything is arranged in a very simple and clear way! All thanks to exclusive mobile user interface by ASUS, called ZenUI.

Also.. This is my lockscreen. You noticed a timeline thing?

It's the What's Next timeline! Which is one of the key features of the ASUS ZenUI user platform to help us with our daily schedule. Like i said, my phone calendar is one the most important feature i need. Cox without my calendar, i don't need to run my life anymore.

I won't remember which day i have meeting, photoshoot, work, or meetup with my friends hahah.

If one day i just disappear it's either i get killed, get dementia or i lost my phone calendar.

So yup! With "What's Next" i know what's gonna happen next and what i have to do and how much time i have before i do them hahaha. It's freaking convenient lah! Make my life so much easier.

Then when you click into a day, you'd notice another key feature of the ZenUI..

See the little ticks and exclamation marks? If you done something dee, then tick it off! If you intend to do it later then hit the exclamation mark to put it in the "Do It Later" list! =D SIMPLE HOR!!!
One other cool thing about the ASUS ZenFone 5 is GloveTouch! As the name suggest, you could make full use of your ZenFone 5 during every scenario! Snowing? Freezing cold? No problem even if you have gloves on! Display sensitivity is increased for ZenFone 5, with new ASUS technologies that make it possible to use the device while wearing gloves.. Unless of course.. Your gloves are thick as my Mickey Mouse ones hahaha!

So overall, i enjoyed trying out the ASUS ZenFone 5! And i intend to keep using it. I think it is very useful for my work lah!!! The email damn easy to use omg. Can just attach pictures into your composition and then the camera got so many functions!

(Josh snapped this for me at a pretty dim place as well where sunlight wasn't coming in direct!)

The whole beautification and Best-Smile features etc are damn cool right! Everyone can look their best (or better than no makeup and haggard) with this hahaha. And it has a fast and responsive performance with Intel processor so no lagging in snapping pictures or loading apps.

PLEASE, I HATE PHONE CAMERA THAT LAGS. TAKE TEN FREAKING YEARS TO FOCUS. You guys would know what phone cameras i'm talking about. Hahah. I'm not using that phone lah, i just see my sister and Josh use, see until i pekchek sometime. Josh always whip out his phone camera wanna capture the sunset along the highway.. When his phone camera focus finish, everything also finish dee, we go inside tunnel dee. Hahahaha. FHL.

Pearl leh, whip out phone camera wanna shoot Yurou, moment over when the phone is done focusing. Lol. But somehow pictures still turn out sucky =XXX So, a fast and responsive processor is crucial!

And don't forget the various photography modes ASUS ZenFone 5 offers!!! =DDD You HAVE TO try out the depth-of-field (best for food!), low light, best smiles and beautification modes! Hahah!
You may get this NOW for only $219!!! I KNOW IT'S CRAZY BUT IT'S TRUE! ONLY $219! =OOO It's available in black, white and red colours!

It's madness loh. There's many many other functions i haven't even cover. It's a through and through smartphone lah! But the price is like.. =OOO Mad low.

I think it's good for those who want a fully-functional smartphone or those who wanna get another phone for overseas usage!!! Cox ASUS ZenFone 5 allows dual-SIM usage!!! =OOO Freaking awesome you don't have to change your SIM card in and out even if you're someone who travels a lot! This phone really focus a lot on their user-friendliness and convenience!

But generally it's good for anyone who like to snap nice pictures with the phone lah haha! It's so major sleek and light some more! Looks pretty timeless! If you're somebody's parent you can consider getting this for your kids also if they insist they want a smartphone. It's plenty good enough for them already!

I'd tell my sisters and friends (and Josh hopefully!) to change to the ASUS ZenFone 5 if they are still using Sucky O.O Really is picture quality cannot fight with the ASUS ZenFone 5.

Yet ZenFone 5 is sooooooo much more affordable!!! So you make the call okay~! Hahahah.

Bye, i gotta take a call. Haha. Nay.

Wow, the phone sounds awesome!
But I was wondering if the battery life of the phone is good? Like how long does it last you if it's fully charged? :)
