Smartphones are the lifeline of our lifestyle today. And that has created a giant market with many competitors and many more options.
[Tweet “Smartphones, Smartphones and Smart-phones are everywhere.”]
From iPhones to android to windows to (now less popular) BlackBerry. And hundreds and thousands of confusing models from many manufacturers. It’s hard to decide which phone to buy, and even trickier is the fact that it’s very hard to feel satisfied with what we decide. Here’s our effort to reduce your confusion and tell you all about the ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser so that you can decide if it’s the right choice for you.

First thing first, it’s probably the only 5 inch smart screen phone with 4G that you can buy under $200.
Innovative Design and User Interface
The home screen to categorization of apps and games is done in a good way however sometimes you can’t find easily whatever you want to find out. Speed and simple user interface of the phone makes it quite stunning choice for users. The phone is so slim better from other devices from other manufacturers at this price point.
There are few awful design flaws though, each time you want to lock the device, you have to span your index finger all the way up to its six-inch height and with an awkward protruding volume button at the back that makes it impossible to use without feeling uncomfortable.
It’s has a decent front and rear camera for the price.
Here are the specs:
Primary: 13 MP, Wide View, LED Flash, Auto Focus, F2.0 Aperture, and PixelMaster
Secondary: 5 Mega-Pixel, F2.0 Aperture, PixelMaster and Auto Focus
While it’s definitely not as good as you would like, but it’s one of the best you can get for this price point.
With 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM and up to 128 GB expandable memory, it’s just could not get any better. Especially at this price point.
With the gorgeous, smooth touch screen and 2 Gigs of RAM with Quad-core processor, this is just the best high performance phone in the mid-level range.
If I were to point out only one reason why I would absolutely buy this phone, It is the battery life.
Here are the specs:
What I noticed is, I didn’t have to charge it for 11 days and for my phone using habits, I have 7-8 apps always running in the background and I constantly refresh AdSense and Analytics apps. Also I have a video watching time of 20-30 minutes/day at an average.
And migrating from Moto G 2nd Gen (Which I had to charge almost daily). This is a big plus for me.
So all I would say is that the battery life of this device is really awesome.You can really feel the magical experience because battery that allows you to do anything from watching high resolutions movies to listening songs for a long time.
Lightweight, ultra thin, giant screen and a metallic strip below the screen is simply mmuuuaa. Oh yes I am trying to kiss a mobile phone (I don’t know if that makes me sound gay). Design has issues that I have described above and charger is poorly designed and looks cheap and out-dated. There’s a plus though that disconnectable data cable from charger gives higher flexibility.
It’s not a 5.6 million pixel high contrast retina display, but it’s a very decent display with a smooth touch at about 1/6th the price.
It’s built on Android 5.0. Wait didn’t google just release marshmallow. Don’t worry just yet. ASUS has rolled out update to android 6.0. You are gonna get all the awesome features of android 6.0.
It’s the best phone for its price range, hands down if you are looking for a mid budget smartphone that could give you all the great features, But if you think that design and minor usability issues and shitty android customisation are too much to handle, then probably this phone is not for you.
2 reasons why I would not buy it
- Hardware design flaws: The lock is on the top of its 6 inches long body and the protruding volume button at the back.
- Outdated interface with single color icons. The interface really sucks big time.
