Asus ZenFone 2 Laser Review

Score: 6.62/10

Asus ZenFone 2 Laser is a nice Android device released a few years ago, with a quite big 5" touch-screen, a powerful processor speeding at 1200 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 5 MP front camera.

Asus decided to build this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 chip, packing a fast 1200 MHz processing unit and a big 2 GB RAM memory. This cellphone has a 16 GB interesting internal memory and a slot for an SD memory card, which allows you to store hundreds of games and applications without worrying about space.

The Asus ZenFone 2 Laser is quite slim and comfortable, but it's not close to being one of the thinnest cellphones out there, with a thickness of 0.41 inches. While the Asus ZenFone 2 Laser is only 5.66 inches long, it manages to hold a 5" display. This phone feels much lighter than what one would expect from a phone of this size. This phone is offerred in a nice range of color options, black, gray, purple, blue, red, white and gold.

This phone includes a good level 5" display with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes all pictures and movies look colorful and brightful. This display uses TFT capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This phone counts with Wi-Fi connection (although it can't be shared with other devices acting as a modem), LTE 4G high performance internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a bit slower 4G variation or 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Asus ZenFone 2 Laser comes with two Micro SIM cards so it is able to use 2 different phone numbers in the same cellphone.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 megapixels back-facing camera and a 5 MP front side camera. In addition, the camera counts with some good characteristics: auto-focus, flash, face detection shooting, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0, EDR), GPS Localization and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This phone features a big 2400 mAh battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an extremely long battery life.

This cellphone is priced 170 dollars, similar to other similar phones. No matter if you want it mostly for internet broswing and social networks or need this cellphone for work, this phone is a very good choice .
