4. Awesome PixelMaster Camera

Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML has a 13MP PixelMaster rear camera made with Largan Lens 2.0 (same vendor as Apple) and has a dual LED flash (White and Yellow) for more natural skin tones. It also has 16 Built-in Picture Modes for all occasions.

ASUS ZENFONE 2 REVIEW PHILIPPINES

With its PixelMaster camera, it takes really good photos in general and has a lowlight mode for best night landscape. And not to be missed are the backlight (HDR) mode and the 140-degrees selfie panorama. I also like the front camera which intuitively switches to “beautification mode” once changed to front camera as well as the “time rewind mode” which allows short burst shots perfect for capturing moving subjects. With all these impressive features, you can now be more creative with your travel photos. How cool is that?!

5. Touch Gesture and Double Tap Functions

The Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML allows gesture actions like “shake to screenshot” and “double tap to wake and sleep”. The touch gestures can also be used to activate different apps instantly when the device display is not power on. I like most is the double tap function. When the phone is awake, tap the home key twice to automatically enter one hand mode for easy one hand operation. Cool!
