You know as a blogger, I love my smartphone. It is my go-to device to pen down stray ideas as and when imagination strikes. I also love to click pics that I later use in my blogposts. Hence, a good camera in my mobile phone is a must. Also the ease of use and good graphics are important.
So the first thing I did with the phone was click pictures. As I regularly write travel posts, click funny billboards, capture scenery or life on the go, I find my cellphone a handy companion. Whip it out of the purse and click instead of lugging along heavy cameras. For this reason, it is important that my cellphone click sharp, vivid pictures without much adjustment or settings. Sometimes, you really have to click in a hurry. Asus ZenFone 5 takes some pretty competent pictures especially in natural light. It has many modes and is user-friendly. It is also easy to take short videos on the phones. The colors are lively, vivid and real. I have kids and a dog, and you know anytime is video time around them. You already know that I have a food blog too. Hence eating out or cooking at home, I click food regularly. This phone’s camera did justice to those pics. You will see more of them in the next post. I liked the front camera too for when the inspiration for selfies strikes or for my skype calls.
The video camera is fine, but I did feel that the audio quality could be better. I felt some noise in the audio.
Watch videos and play games:
I love to watch videos on my phone. I play my favorite Youtube songs on the phone regularly. The videos download quickly and the audio and video quality are just perfect. And, what can I say about games. My children are always flicking my phone playing their games for hours on the phone. The amazing part is that the 5-inch HD screen is really nice and shows bright and crisp images. There is no lag time and the touch works like a dream. It is enjoyable watching any multimedia on this phone. And you know what, the battery lasts an entire day even when I have been keeping the wi-fi on the entire day. Pretty impressive because even my high-end Android has its battery draining out by the evening.
Reading blogposts and articles:
As a blogger, I do a lot of reading on my smartphone. A fast browser is important for me. With Asus Zenfone 5, I faced no problem of speed. The pages load quickly and enable me to enjoy a smooth reading experience. The screen has excellent resolution and clarity. The phone is also very comfortable to hold as the back is slightly rounded and eases gripping the phone comfortably. The phone is reasonably light at 145 gm and does not feel bulky at all. Hence I don’t put any strain on my hands while holding the phone and reading.
All my tasks of browsing the net, sending mails, playing games, watching videos and making calls throughout the day were handled expertly by the phone.
Overall, a commendable performance by a phone which is packed with high-end features at a reasonable price. Had I tried this phone earlier, I would have bought this one instead of my high-end Android phone.
