Asus ZenFone Selfie review:

 

The Asus ZenFone Selfie takes aim at selfie lovers with its front-facing 13-megapixel shooter and dual-LED flash. However, the sluggish performance and poor camera make this phone a hard one to recommend to all but dedicated selfie-shooters.

The Asus ZenFone Selfie is a moderately priced phone that lets you take good front-facing shots in 13-megapixel high resolution. Battery life is great as well.

The front-facing camera looks strange, and sluggish performance slows down even more when using fancy photo-processing modes.

The ZenFone Selfie is an ambitious phone with an interesting camera feature, but performance issues stand in the way of unlocking the camera's full potential. Most buyers should keep looking.

On paper, though, the Selfie seems like a great addition to Asus' impressive ZenFone range, and its focus on photos is appealing, especially the front camera's wide-angle lens and f/2.2 aperture. While it isn't the widest for smartphone cameras, it...

ASUS ZenFone Selfie: The funkiest ZenFone handset yet?

 

Is the ASUS ZenFone Selfie just another selfie-centric smartphone? Contrary to its naming scheme, it is actually positioned to eclipse the recent ZenFone 2 series with an added dimension. Equipped with 13-megapixel cameras on the front and rear, can...

Long-lasting removable battery ; Fast charging ; Affordable price point ; Decent front and rear camera

Power button is awkwardly positioned ; Benchmark performance not as good as the ZenFone 2

Asus Zenfone Selfie 3GB Review

 

Zenfone Selfie doesn't have the best front camera for the price, but it has fastest auto focus capability in rear; interface for early users to most advanced..

Strong built ; Improved Zen UI ; Fast AF, great macro capability ; Good Battery life

Big size ; Illogical button placement ; No dedicated camera button

Taking into account both the reviews – this and its camera review, I arrive at a conclusion, and here it is. The Selfie might not have, rather doesn’t have the best front camera for a sub 20k phone. Its good, comes with a flash light and can capture...

Asus Zenfone Selfie Review

 

The Asus Zenfone Selfie takes good selfies indeed. However, with the powerful front camera, we expected even better. There is still a slight hint of pixelation in slightly dimmed fluorescent light conditions, although it does do a much better job than...

Very good overall cameras ; Vibrant display colours ; Smooth gaming performance

Focusing on front camera is slightly soft ; Bulky frame hinders ergonomics ; Too much bloatware

The Zenfone Selfie enters a market that is flooding with competition. On its own, there’s precious little that separates it or makes it stand out from the competition but the front facing camera can strategically serve as a major USP. While not...
