Mobile phone companies nowadays strive to bring phones to the market that are not only beefy in specs, but also bang for the buck. What I meant is that mobile phone companies strive to bring great functionality at an affordable price point.
Today, we are going to talk about the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser. According to a lot of people, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser is truly a bang for the buck phone. With an inexpensive price comes great and functional features and some powerful components under the hood.
Let’s try and investigate this phone even further. The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser’s design is actually quite good. It has a slim form factor which allows you put to put the mobile phone in your pocket with ease.
The back cover of the mobile phone is a brushed aluminum cover and that the screen itself is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This is a popular glass that is commonly used in mobile phone because of its durability.
The inclusion of a removable back cover allows you to change the battery when it is already showing signs of aging.
For the display, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD Display with a resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p) and a pixel density of 401 ppi. The display also looks quite good even in different viewing angles. The only problem with the display is that outside readability is still an issue. Brightness controls are a bit conservative and it does not do a pretty good job increasing brightness when the situation requires it.
As for the performance of the phone, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with the Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that has clockspeeds of 1.7GHz. It is also coupled with the Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Asus opted for a more popular choice in the form of the Qualcomm snapdragon chipset as opposed to the Intel chipset used in Asus mobile phones in the past. Even if they veered away from the conventional Intel chipset they’ve used in the past, performance is surprisingly good and snappy.
The camera of the phone is also quite good. The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with a laser auto-focus feature (that is why this mobile phone got the name Asus Zenfone 2 Laser).
This proprietary laser auto-focus technology allows you to focus on specific frames with ease, allowing you to take crisp and clear photos without any delay. Although the phone lacks some dynamic range, it still provides awesome photos.
The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with the Android Lollipop operating system. They also had their own spin on things included with the Zen UI. Actually, the Zen UI adds to the already interesting interface of the Android 5.0.
Along with great specs under the hood and a great operating system that provides a snappy performance, navigating through the phone’s features are really good and visually appealing.
Asus really brought out a great, bang for the buck phone in the form of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser. This mobile phone is a great mid-range phone and it only costs $200.
