(GADGET) Best Smartphone on Budget: ASUS Zenfone2 Laser 5.0

Hello everyone, last summer I reviewed some of the smartphones available in the market. This includes the ASUS Zenfone 2, the very first smartphone with 4GB RAM. Now I am going to update you what’s the latest in ASUS. I am sharing you my experience on the best smartphone to buy below P8,000. Yep you heard it right, ASUS released Zenfone2 Laser 5.0, the newest smartphone with 8-Megapixel camera and laser auto focus system as fast as 3.0 second!


Wait, let me give you a short and very clear infographic between the two phones launched by ASUS.


From the comparison above, I got really excited to get my Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0. this time I chose Gold.


BUILT and DESIGN: I think this phone is one of the best smartphone as well with a good grip. Its itsergonomic arc with curved back will give you the feel of comfort on your palm. Compared to iPhone 6 plus, this phone is winning with its thin-yet fit design. I love the sophistication at the back!


Same with ZE551ML, Zenfone2 Laser also includes FAST CHARGER! Way to go after Samsung Note 4 announced a 9volts charger for the note 4 series!



So I opened the phone immediately to see the performance. This model has Anti-fingerprints coating with Glove touch support. it gives you the opportunity to enjoy the sliding and swiping. also thanks to full screen lamination.



I admire its sensitivity. It is one of the quickest in the market with perfect touch response time of 60ms, the responsiveness can be felt especially if you are browing rodmagaru.com or playing your favorite games.AsusZenfone2LaserIMG_0901

Ok now let’s go to the much talked about 0.3 second laser auto focus. You see that oblate auto focus beside the camera? This phone has infrared laser which measures distances at lightning speed. So If I am taking photos of my Instagram food, this is the best one to use.


I tried it on my table and I can see that is Toshiba lens manages to focus the subject in a snap and delivers shot with details. The feel is like your usual camera/DSLR. it has auto and manual setting plus HDR, beautification, super resolution,  you can choose either to set it on low light, night, depth of field, effect, selfie, GIF animation (which is my favorite lately), panorama, miniature, time rewind, smart remove, all smiles, slow motion, and time lapse.


DUAL SIM! DUAL ACTIVE! this feature of ASUS in theri smartphones will definitely be one of the reasons why sales are increasing. Some of you probably have more than 1 sim so ASUS is the one for you. Never miss a call because both of them are active compare to other dual sim brands. This phone comes with a dual transceiver, one for each sim!


Can’t get enough of its 5.5-inch display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. Aside from the display,  its64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 cortex A53 MSM8916 quad core processor coupled with Adreno 306 GPU clock speed @ 400MHz is indeed a good reason to buy this . In addition, this smartphone is equipped with 2GB of ddr3 RAM and 16GB internal storage and can support MicroSD cards of up to 128GB.



Highly recommended: . The Zenfone 2 Laser is priced at P7,295.00.
