Design & Built
Now when we start with the Design and built of Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Dual, this times the phone houses in polycarbonate body which seems to look like metal only. Very hard to find actually find out which material they have used. Still, some how they managed to give premium look with great built with so much lighter weight. Overall great built.
ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie (Dual Cam Version) comes with Dual 20+8-megapixel on the top beside it we get different sensors, LED flash and LED Notification. Nothing is left behind.
Coming little bit down it features a large 5.5” IPS HD display that is graced with a 2.5D curved glass that gently melds in along with the curved sides, thus making it a joy to hold in the hands without any fatigue.
Coming little bit down it house back capacitive keys which don’t light up and are printed. Between back capacitive keys it houses a Home button which is not press able and also holds up a fingerprint sensor which is incredibly fast.
Turning to the down side of the phone here we get dual speaker grills out of which left one is having the primary MIC in it and the right one is having a actual speaker in it. Between them houses a Micro USB port which support OTG and normal charging.
Moving the device to the top end we get a 3.5mm audio jack and beside it a secondary noice cancellation MIC which is necessary these days.
Now getting back to left side here we get a triple tray slot which support Dual Nano Sim’s and at the same time it support a dedicated Micro SD card that to up to 2TB as per the brand.
Turning to the right side side we get power lock key and volume rockers which works quite well with no hazel on regular use. One thing which i want to mention over is that the power lock key which we get in Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Dual is also having a coating of Pattern feel on it which actually adds up more premium feel to the device.
Finally coming to the back side of the phone here we get two Antenna line, Primary 16-megapixel camera beside it a Single Tone LED flash and below that houses Asus Branding. There is nothing much which we need to explain further in Built Quality.
Display of Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Dual comes with a 5.5-inch HD Display with a resolution of 720 x 1280. The display gives you the ratio of 16:9, which means no extra side black bars while watching movies or videos. With this price and feature still we can manage with a HD display as the Display colors are sharp tone and watching movies, and playing games look great. While watching a movie on to the phone give immense experience. The Sunlight legibility is also good because of its really great brightness. When we compare the brightness with some other phones this one works really well in sunlight legibility.
Viewing Angle is good, and blacks are decent enough. While watching movies from odd angle won’t affect you in any way. Overall no complaints with the display rather I loved it as the device more towards selfie in budget.
The phone comes with a latest Snapdragon processor which is Snapdragon 430 processor which features a 4 GB Ram. This combo makes it a selfie-centric device with good performance power. Out of 64 GB of internal storage, you get about 53 GB free after that you can also expand it to up to 2TB as the phone support dedicated tray for Micro SD Card.
We get Antutu Score of 43437 and certain other scores are also good. With this screen size and great selfie, they have also given all the sensors which are required by any normal person.
They have not removed any sensors. We can use this smartphone with a VR headset also. Even while using GPS it will give you proper accuracy as it also has magnetic and orientation sensor.
Coming to the gaming part, we can play almost all games. In my use, i have not seen any lag or frame drops even in Asphalt 8 high setting. Every game even in the high-end setting is working well. I have tried playing most of the games like Asphalt 8, Shadow Fight 3, Batman, Bully and Adreno 505 GPU with the support of Snapdragon 430 processor work well. I have also not seen any heating issue while long gaming in DELHI, INDIA Temperature.
The ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) features a 20MP main selfie camera, with f/1.8 aperture and can shoot the pictures at the resolution of 5140 x 3860 Pixels. The smartphone also features a front Soft-light LED flash, that softly spreads light on your face to capture true skin tones even in extreme low-light conditions. The smartphone also features a ‘Selfie Panorama’ mode that allows it shoot selfies panoramas that can capture up to 140° FOV, and all made super easy to capture with the new camera interface.
Known as the widest angle selfie camera, the ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) features an 8MP sensor. It sports an FOV of 120°. Meaning you can shoot super wide selfies with you, your family & friends, and the beautiful backdrop you’re all in! ASUS calls it as ‘Wefies’. In addition, the ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) can shoot superb selfie videos at 1080p Full-HD.
The ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) features an amazing 16MP camera at the back as it does on the front, featuring phase detection autofocus (PDAF) that allows you to lock in focus in just 0.03s. Also, it features electronic image stabilization (EIS), enabling you to shoot judder-free Full-HD videos (the resolution of 1920 x 1080.)
We also get different modes which help us to capture better photos. Using these modes we can give wings to our imagination. We get Portrait mode that adds surreal blurred bokeh depth to the background, allowing you to shoot crazy cool bokeh photos anywhere.
We can easily activate the Portrait mode in the phone by just pressing the portrait icon button from the main interface. This mode will work in both front as well as rear camera. Something also that you don’t see among other smartphones.
We also get a Selfie Master App which features full-fledged beautification modes unlike you’re yet to see on any other smartphone. It is laced with the SelfieMaster Technology that enables it to beautify each shot. It can even beautify your face in videos, and while we’re still talking about videos, the ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) also packs in the BeautyLive feature that allow you to beautify yourself while you’re live-streaming on your favourite social media app, such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. It also makes use of the Dual-microphones to cancel out ambient noise and keeps your voice intact while you live-stream to the world.
Out the many other enhancement features, I loved the ‘Artistic Selfie Filters’ – The ZenFone 4 Selfie (dual cam version) allows selfie photos to be enhanced with a choice of eight Instagram-like filters: Greyscale, Warm, Hipster, Retro, Faded, Nostalgic, Vibrant and Blush. To activate them simply swipe left from the interface of any of the front facing selfie cameras.
Battery on the smartphone is pegged at 3000mAh allowing you to sail through an entire day even with aggressive usage and continuous photography. it took me approx 2 Hours to charge from 0 to 100% using its default charger. Battery usage of the device is good. It will easily go to last you more than a day because of good software optimization.
You will not find even a single complaint regarding the battery part of this phone.
Overall, if you are a selfie-centric person and love to click selfie then this time Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Dual Cam can be your choice. It comes up with different color also like Gold and Black. Unfortunately, i am having the Gold color which most of you like but my favorite is Black.
