Asus Zenfone Zoom Reviews:Â

Asus Zenfone zoom focus mainly on camera. Its specifications are quite identical to Zenfone 2’s specifications. It feature camera with 3x optical zoom which is its major advantage or merit. Not only optical zoom it is packed other interesting photography tools like precise laser autofocus which was used in LG G3, full manual mode and dual-color LED flash. The last smartphone to feature an optical zoom camera was Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom which failed badly due to its inconsistent camera performance plus poor battery life and bulky design. Design is not the issue here its pretty thin, light and does’t occupy much space in pocket.
