Description

Asus ZenFone Zoom is the rare bird featuring optical zoom, and it is stuffed in a fairly stealthy body at that, too. It is a much better compromise between the chunkiness of the K zoom, and the portability of a regular non-zoom phone. The 13 MP PixelMaster camera on the back is not only sporting a 3x zoom 10-element lens and f/2.7 to f/4.8 aperture, but also features optical image stabilization, too. Moreover, you get laser auto-focus, similar to LG G3 and G Flex2, and a dual-color Real Tone flash tech, for a full point-and-shoot camera experience. In addition, there are some manual adjustments for the shutterbugs out there, like exposure and shutter speed.
