Yesterday, Asus unveiled its Asus ZenFone Zoom S smartphone in India. The device offers quite good specifications for its price. Looks like Asus is learning from its past mistakes. Anyways, that is not the point of this article.
To start with the device comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset. Frankly, I felt like this is the only point where Asus could have improved as I don’t feel the processor is enough for heavy weight users. The Zenfone Zoom S has a beautiful 5.5-inches super AMOLED display which has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display is a 2.5D display which means it has a little curve at the edges. Zenfone Zoom S also comes with Adreno 506 GPU which should be more than enough to handle games and graphics intensive tasks.
The device also has an inbuilt storage of 64 GB out of which around 52 GB will be usable. There is also MicroSD card expansion available through which you could get up to 256 GB of storage. Moreover, it comes with 4 GB RAM to handle resource hungry applications with ease. The device also includes a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and compass.
The main focus of the device is its camera. The Asus Zenfone Zoom offers an impressive dual 12 MP rear cameras. The first lens here acts like a normal rear camera and the second one is a telephoto zoom lens. The first camera has an aperture of f.1/7 which will help it for low-light photography whereas the second lens has 2.3x optical zoom. The camera setup as a whole comes with 4-axis stabilization, laser/PDA autofocus and a dual tone LED flash. The front facing camera is a 13 MP one which will attract the selfie lovers.
