In the past few years, ASUS was associated with the release of phones capable of docking into tablets which in turn were able to dock into tablets. But since 2014 the Taiwanese company has moved towards making of standard Android phones, with 2015 being the year they managed to gain a stamp of approval in the Android market with different range of smartphones with competitive prices.
There are a variety of ASUS models available, with some being restricted to certain regions, they all resemble each other in a number of ways. Here are some of the best Android phones from ASUS you should consider buying:
ASUS ZENFONE 2
ASUS ZenFone 2 was unveiled to the world at the 2015 CES event held in Las Vegas, becoming the successor of the initial ZenFone series of Android phones. ZenFone 2 was the second and more successful smartphone from ASUS partnering with Intel to manufacture mobile products. The handset was also the first Android phone to launch featuring a 4GB RAM option, with its camera being praised for its capabilities especially in low lit areas.
The phone proved value for money, with the high-end version offering an internal storage of 64GB backed by a 4GB of RAM at a price US$300. A cheaper version was also available with 2GB of RAM with the same experience but at an affordable price of US$199.
ASUS ZENFONE ZOOM
The ASUS ZenFone Zoom was highly anticipated since the launch of its predecessor at the CES 2015. Though it was launched in January 2016, we are still excited to soon see it hit most markets. If you are into smartphone photography, then ZenFone Zoom is going to be something you need to consider. Its camera is complemented with 3x optical zooming, without requiring a physical revolving lens.
ZenFone Zoom’s metal frame makes it quite attractive, with its Zen UI software promising the same reliable experience as you’d get from any ASUS series at a cost saving price.
ASUS ZENFONE SELFIE
Announced in the summer of 2015, the ZenFone Selfie is pretty much a different version of the ZenFone, though its outstanding feature is in its name. The phone’s front selfie camera offers a matching 13MP set up similar to the rear camera, which means exceptional quality and high resolution selfies. The ZenFone Selfie comes in a range of colors such as pink and a greeny blue.
In addition, the phone provides a few more accessories to boost your photo capturing experience. For example, for hands free snapping, you can take advantage of the efficient Selfie Swing, which propels the device at the right angle to capture your pose.
ASUS ZENFONE LASER
ASUS has so far announced the ZenFone Laser twice, with the first in Asia and the latest launch arriving in North America with a few minor hardware improvements compared to the original. Once again, the ZenFone 2 resemblance is seen on most ASUS handsets, featuring the same design, hardware as well software functionalities. Its primary feature however is its main camera which embodies a laser autofocus technology. This feature that was once only spotted on high end LG’s G lineup, makes the mid-range ZenFone Laser smartphone technically brilliant.
ASUS ZENFONE MAX
If you are looking for a massive battery life then ZenFone is your best bet. What it lacks compared to other devices on the list, it makes up for it with extended battery power. Equipped with an astounding 5,000 mAh battery capacity, the phone runs on a Snapdragon 410 processor with display resolution of 720p, the phone offers a battery longevity that is hard to find. Also, if you need to, the ZenFone Max can be used to charge other devices packing lesser battery capacities.
