We did a battery test using Antutu Battery test and started the testing around 3:44 P.M. with 47% of battery life and the test ended at around 5:01 P.M. with 26% battery life. Which amazes me on how it last for more than an hour of non stop usage and still has 26% of battery life after.
The ZF4 Selfie Pro sports a 24MP dual selfie camera with LED flash and 16MP rear camera with Dual LED flash also. The main selfie camera features a Sony IMX362 with ASUS DuoPixel technology which is a hype when taking selfies with bokeh effect.

I think I am so much inlove with the ZF4 Pro because it can give results for both front and rear camera, specially now that they have upgraded the quality of the camera when shooting low light with the help of their HDR feature.
