- manuals and the warranty card

The new ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie lite has the same body as the ZF 4 Selfie Pro and ZF 4 Selfie, but the difference is that the new ZF4 Selfie Lite is much more lighter than the two and I think it uses a high grade plastic material to achieve that weight. Though you’ll notice that unlike the ZF4 Selfie Pro it lights when you press the back button ZF4 lite does not have that kind of feature.

The New Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite is packed with 3000 mAh non-removable lithium-ion battery. Which can last up to 2-3 days on standby.
We did a battery test using Antutu Battery test and started the testing around 2:49 A.M. with 39% of battery life and the test ended at around 4:37 A.M. with 13% battery life. Imagine a nonstop surfing and gaming and still it has 13% of battery life.
The ZF4 Selfie Lite sports 13 MP, autofocus, LED flash and 13 MP, f/2.0, LED flash for the rear camera. The main selfie camera also have the bokeh effect you can see from other ZF4 Selfie. The rear camera can take panoramic photos and HDR.
We’ve been using ASUS ZF4 Selfie Lite for the past weeks and here are some sample photos from various shots at home. This is just for the rear cama samples.
We have a hard time using the rear camera as it’s very slow in capturing our dog specially when he moves around. Though we have decent photos on low light we opt also using the HDR mode for a much vivid photos. We tried the front camera and unfortunately I accidentally deleted them all, but be sure to come back for the selfie because it also have the boked effect even if it only have a single camera.
The SELFIE Lite experience
The new ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite is a very budget friendly smartphone for those people who wanted a not so pricey phone but with a good quality camera and selfie features. Though we have problem using the rear camera specially with a low light ambiance, they gave a great result with its selfie feature as it can do a bokeh effect even if it has a single camera. Heavy RPG games may not function well on the new ZF4 Selfie Lite as it lags when we tried Dungeon Hunter.
“A great camera phone that will not empty your pocket!” -Kweky
The big question is would we recommend the new ZF4 Selfie Lite, if you aim a for a great performance overall (camera, gaming and others..) this phone is not for you, but if you are a selfie addict you’ll definitely love this phone.
