More so, in terms of quality, you will find that the images taken by the ZenFone 2 are very crisp and bright overall, so that means you would no longer need to rely on any sort of photo app anymore. Given the ZenFone 2’s overall performance, I can say that it rivals that of the more expensive smartphones out there, but without the hefty price tag.”
Roy Macam echoes Jay’s sentiments: “Performance wise, I can say that the ZenFone 2 is much faster than the point and shoot cameras in the market now. Its auto-focus speed is so on-point that I have made my ZenFone 2 my go-to device for taking quick snaps, as there is never a struggle to capture any moment.”

Thanks ASUS Philippines for inviting me to this fabulous photo marathon, although most of my photos are not good enough as other’s what’s important is to learn and slowly apply the things Jay and Roy taught us during the crash course and I have proven that ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is the best mobile phone for me and for bloggers like me. It’s easy to carry because it’s light weight and chic, you can flaunt it anymore, but won’t leave your pocket empty. To know more about ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser’s review, Click here.
