Here’s our detailed video review of the Asus Zenfone Live.

 

But the most exciting feature of the Zenfone Live is undoubtedly its BeautyLive app.

BeautyLive App:

ZenFone Live’s all-new BeautyLive app introduces the world to real-time beautification, allowing users to create and maintain the perfect look when going live on their favorite social-networking sites.

BeautyLive combines smart software algorithms and hardware acceleration to automatically smooth skin and removes blemishes, and it integrates seamlessly with Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. The result is the ability to craft and broadcast instant glamor that keeps the user looking as beautiful as they want to be throughout every live-streaming session. The BeautyLive feature works with both front and rear camera.

ZenFone Live’s front-facing camera is made for snapping sharper, clearer selfies. The sensor has extra-large, 1.4?m pixels that improve sensitivity to light by up to 200 percent compared to smartphones with standard smaller pixels. ZenFone Live also has a soft-light LED flash that illuminates true skin tones, and it’s equipped with a wide-angle lens with an 82° field of view — so users are able to frame, capture details in wide angle and broadcast it to the world.

ZenFone Live also has a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0-aperture, five-prism rear lens, and benefits from ASUS PixelMaster’s industry-leading low-light technology to increase light sensitivity by up to 400 percent. It also enhances noise reduction and boosts color contrast by up to 400 percent. It supports up to 12 different camera modes, including real-time Beautification, Low Light, and Super Resolution modes, to captures beautiful high-resolution photos.

Here are some stills from the same.

As you can see, the camera here is seriously good and give excellent results in all light conditions.

Speakers:

Another improved feature here is the sound quality in the new Zenfone Live. ZenFone Live features a powerful speaker with a five-magnet design and metal voice coil to produce loud and clear audio with supreme quality in every scenario. This speaker is powered by a smart amplifier that increases audio resolution and loudness while ensuring that the speaker is not damaged. ZenFone Live also features DTS Headphone:X™, a revolutionary surround-sound technology that synthesizes a full 7.1-channel virtual surround-sound experience, making all content sound better over headphones and with this unique combination, ZenFone Live produces and delivers audio that’s up to 67 percent louder than the previous generation, while also extending low-frequency reproduction by up to 17 percent and reducing distortion by up to 15 percent.

Verdict:

At a price of INR 9,999, this isn’t exactly a device that will mesmerize you. At the same price, Xiaomi offers a lot more like more RAM and internal storage, Asus could have increased the RAM at least to 3 GB here which is the standard these days. Also, the processor is not up to the mark. Asus Zenfone Live do have a great camera, no doubt on that, but overall this could have been a better device.

Price in India:

Priced at INR 9,999, the ASUS ZenFone Live will be available from today (i.e. May 24th, 2017) with all major E-tailers and Retailers in India.
