Asus is back for the third time with their laser series and it is no longer a budget camera phone it used to be. So how does it stand up to the competition now? Read to review to know more.
The Zenfone 3 Laser comes with a 5.5 inch screen 1080p screen with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass on the top. It has a curved metal back and weighs just about 150g. It feels solid! On the top right over the screen, theres the speaker and the camera module. Below the screen are three physical capacitive buttons which is great, but they are not back-lit. On the back, theres the camera module which is slightly raised and not flush. LED Flash to the right and laser focus to the left. Below the camera module is the fingerprint sensor which works pretty well.
On the top, you have the 3.5mm headphone jack and on the bottom theres the micro-USB Charging port. To the left of the charging port is the microphone grill and to the right is the speaker grill. On the right side there’s the power button and a volume rocker. On the right is the hybrid SIM-Tray which supports micro-SD up to 128GB.
On the internal side, Zenfone 3 Laser runs on an Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdradon 430 clocked at 1.4GHz and Adreno 505 for Graphics. For internal storage it comes with 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM.
On the software side, like every other Asus phone it runs on ZenUI 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. ZenUI is still not clean enough or snappy like plain regular Android. But it does come with its own quirks which you can check out in one of our previous reviews. Like every other Asus device, this one also comes with 100GB of Google Drive storage for free for two years.
The ZenFone 3 Max comes with 3,000mAh battery which lasts a whole day under light usage. But under heavy usage you would have to charge it midway through the day. It does not have fast charging, but it does not take long to charge.
Camera is the most important part of ZenFone 3 Laser. It has a 13MP primary camera and 8MP secondary camera. Both these cameras are pretty good under normal lighting conditions and acceptable under low-light conditions. But the part that matters is the laser which is used for focusing. The subject is in focus in the smallest possible time and it is faster than any other phone out there. The laser focus does work!
The ZenFone 3 Laser costs Rs. 17,000 and comes in two different colours: Gold and Silver. The phone is a great device, but it is hard to recommend the phone because the competition is able to offer similar specs without the Laser Focus at a much lower price.
