Setting up new standards and upgrading the latest devices ASUS recently has to offer is now joining the latest trend in mobile photography. ASUS just recently revealed its new flagship, the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom equipped with super advanced and new camera technology is now creating a big noise in the mobile photography community.
It’s not just one, but two! Yes, ASUS finally joined the competition with other brands’ dual-camera feature for a smartphone. What’s with the new Zenfone why it is considered beast among the other brands’ current smartphone specifications? Here are the top 3 reasons why this smartphone is perfect for mobile photography enthusiasts and for those who always seek for adventure:
Among other competitors, the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom camera is also packed with ASUS SuperPixel™ technology.
A 12-megapixel f/1.7 aperture, wide angle lens with ASUS SuperPixel™ technology with a 2.5x Light Sensitivity* that lets you capture everyday moments most especially on a dark environment with a very crisp photos and videos. It also lets you capture perfect back-light photography.
A 12-megapixel 2.3x optical zoom for high-quality close-ups from far away. Capturing random people’s portraits will not be a problem anymore. It lets you shoot sharp, photos and videos from a distance and ramp up the magnification to a 12x view with improved digital-zoom technology.
In my own point of view, regardless of how beautiful your smartphone camera is, if it couldn’t last half a day, it sucks. What’s best with the new ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom is that it is packed with a 5000mAh battery capacity that lets you capture important moments without running out of battery in a few hours.
To help you out on how to save battery, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S625 processor allows you to save battery consumption and would allow you to get everything done the moment you need it.
