(Last Updated On: December 27, 2016)ASUS has been silently changing it’s strategies since past 1 year. The first sign of change was evident in the Zenfone 3 lineup. The newer Zenfones were faster, amazingly designed and came at a premium price. From a company which chased cut to cut pricing it started positioning itself as one which focused more on the design and premium feel of it’s devices. The change hasn’t been without resistance. Today we are going to talk about the latest device from ASUS, the Zenfone 3 laser. So let’s get started with our ASUS Zenfone 3 laser review.
ASUS Zenfone 3 laser specifications:
The Zenfone 3 laser comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 1. 4 Ghz octa core chipset, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage. It also comes with support for microSD expandable storage up to 128 GB via the hybrid sim slot that it has.
The phone comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p display. It comes with Android Marshmallow out of the box and has a 3000 mAh battery.
The Zenfone 3 laser is a dual sim smartphone and it supports micro sim and 1 nano sim in the hybrid sim tray slot. The phone comes with Wi-Fi, GPS, FM, 4G (with support for bands used in India) and Bluetooth. It has an accelerometer, ambient light sensor and gyroscope.
ASUS Zenfone 3 laser review: The details.
We tested this phone for quite some time and during our time with this phone we came to the following conclusion.
The camera for this device is a 13 MP one and is good because of all the software optimizations and the great camera app. Front camera is an 8 MP camera which takes detailed videos. One of the cons for this one was that the noise cancellation applied during video recordings was too high.
Here’s a short sample recording from the front camera to give you a better idea.
Testing the front #camera quality of @Asus #Zenfone3laser which is great! Notice the noise cancellation applied by the two microphones. While this is really good for meetings or general recordings , music quality tends to suffer because of this! Does your #smartphone have noise cancellation video recording? Let me know in the comments. #artist #music #weeknd #theweeknd #thehills #coversong #songs #guitar #electricguitar #unsigned #songcover
The phone has a great display with good viewing angles. Another con that we found was that the speaker had very feeble volume and it was not at all usable in crowded areas.
The ASUS Zenfone 3 laser retails for a price of INR 16,999 and for this price this smartphone is significantly overpriced. You can get the Lenovo Zuk Z2 for a slightly higher price and that phone would be quite good when compared to this one.
