But what ASUS has done with the integration of AI into their camera could not be ignored. It can detect scenes and can create real-time auto adjustments to the camera settings, all thanks to its AI Scene detection, AI photo learning, Real-time beautification etc.
The AI ringtone is mere just a complimentary feature but it’s awesome. The AI actually sets the ringtone volume according to the surrounding you’re in, which means if you’re in a quiet place it will play slowly and if you’re into a much-crowed place it will just blast it out. Nice huh!
The smartphone is also powered by an Intelligent charging system, ASUS is calling this feature Smart charging. The battery feature a smart management system, basically it during the day the phone activates smart charging while in the night it slows it down to preserve battery life.
