Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie with Dual Front Camera – Unboxing & Impressions

Selfies  are becoming  an addiction among the consumers and  one of major trends as the Smartphone manufacturers make sure to provide a good front camera in their phones.

Asus recently launched one such selfie centric phone in India  called , the Asus Zenfone 4 selfie .

It’s a mid range device priced at Rs. 14,999 / – that comes with  good dual cameras on the front. How well does it overall perform ? Let’s find out in this quick review.

Inside the box  you  get

  • The device itself
  • User manual
  • Warranty card
  • Micro USB Data cable
  • Travel Charger
  • Sim eject pin

Let’s take a quick look at what it offers :

The  device , light in weight  and  looks good  .

This is 4 GB RAM , 64 GB model .Dual sim (Nano SIM + Nano SIM + Micro SD card slot).  JIO VoLTE  works . Comes  loaded with ZenUI 4.0 based on Android Nougat 7.1.1

Audio is loud and clear, call quality is also good. Finger print sensor is responsive.

 

Design and Build

It’s  a good looking device .  Back is made out of plastic with metallic finishing . Light in weight and easy to handle . Comes in four gorgeous colors: Gold, Rose Pink, Black and Mint Green.

 

Display

5.5 inches  display  that comes with  2.5 D curved glass protection.   Resolution 720 x 1280 pixels (~267 ppi pixel density) .  Color reproduction is vibrant.  Viewing angles are really good. However I would expect a Full HD display at this price.

 

Performance and Gaming

 

With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa Core @ 1.4 GHz – 64 Bit.
Adreno 505 GPU, overall performance was smooth with no lags. Not the powerful chip out there and at Rs.15 k we would expect SD652 or SD625. It managed the  games like Asphalt 8 and mortal combat . But again you cannot push it hard as it is not intended to.

While playing high end games the temperature was under control  40 degrees max

 

Camera

As the name says selfie is the focus of this device and you get dual camera in the front. 20 MP + 8 MP  dual front camera does an good job . Has 3 modes called normal,  wide and portrait . Portrait mode gets the background blurred and focuses on the subject .  Good for selfies as the name suggests . The bokeh portrait  needs to improve though.   it’s kinda okish.  You get good output with  the  portraits  in normal mode .  On Both rear and front cameras takes good  shots. With wide mode you can capture a wider area , comes in handy when you take group selfies .  Rear camera takes some good pictures in good lighting conditions , but is not so good with the low light .  Check out the samples below.

 

 

Battery

The 3000 mAh  battery does a decent job , With casual every day use , one can pull it up to 1 to 1.5 days . Charging the device from 0 -100 percent takes around 3 hours.

 

What I think

 

 

On the whole , it’s a selfie centric phone and if you are a selfie person you are gonna love it . Not for power users though. So if you take a lot of selfies you can check this device out. I am hoping with software updates it improves over time.  With a decent pricing , you get a device that gets your every day job done with out any issues and give you good selfies.

I think given the Smartphone market  , if ASUS can work on their specs  at an impressive pricing they can be more competitive .
