Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro Review

3

Introduction


The selfie-oriented niche may be a small one, but still active. Every now and then a manufacturer will launch a phone with a high-resolution front camera, assisted by an LED flash, and some software enhancements to boost your self-made mugshots. Today, we take a look at the Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. As you are probably guessing by the name, it's a phone that wants to appeal to the social-networking, selfie-loving crowd. This one ups the ante with a secondary, wide-angle selfie camera on the front, and a Portrait Mode for both the front- and rear-facing snappers.

Design



When first laying eyes on the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, one is met with a pleasant, contemporary design. The device is wrapped in matte-finished metal and has a thin profile, which feels quite pleasant in the hand. The home button on the bottom is a capacitive plaque, which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. We've got backlit "back" and "recent apps" buttons surrounding it.

The power button and volume rocker are both placed on the right, with the latter being just a tad bit higher than we would've liked. Still, all controls are in a reasonably reachable spot. The physical buttons have a very reassuring click to them, though they're just a bit shallow.

Display


We've got a 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The imagery is sharp and, thanks to a very elaborate screen color customization menu, we can get either very punchy colors, or a very subdued, easy-on-the-eyes look.

In short, if not entirely color-accurate, the display is a pleasure to look at and covers a variety of tastes. Unfortunately, it doesn't get very bright, so viewing out in the sunlight is not always a great experience.
