Review of Asus ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0

Travel memories are usually kept in a photo album. But over the years, from photo albums, we kept memento in our smartphones. Perhaps, because it’s easier to carry anytime, anywhere. From traditional point and shoot cameras, today share amazing and beautiful scenery through our smartphones.

SeatsForTwo loves taking photos, may it be a a stunning view behind us, food that’s worth sharing on social media to couple-fie. More than luxury, our smartphones have been part of our daily routine specially for blogging purposes.

About a week ago, this red Asus ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 arrived in the mail. The first photo was an outdoor shot of a lovely veranda somewhere in McKinley Hill. Hubby seems to enjoy the view and posing for the ZenFone 2 Laser.


What we like about the Asus ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0

1. Ergonomic arc design with its curved back and thinnest edge measuring just 3.9mm which provides comfortable, suitable grip for multitasking.

The matte finish design looks pretty, it’s not slippery and provides secure grip. It also fits the palm of my hands.

2. Taking selfie and couplefie is always easy with the back buttons. You can also increase or lower the volume using these buttons. These are located at the back of the phone.

3. You will find the camera and flash on top of the volume button at the back. It has 8-Megapixel camera, Flash and Laser Auto Focus system that is fast as 0.03 second. Front Camera is 5MP.

The camera takes vivid, clear photos especially on natural light. Check out our photos below.

The camera comes with pre-set modes. The in-depth of field is my favorite mode, next to automatic and wide angle selfie panorama.
