ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser: Beauty With Brains

I have never been much of a gadget person and cell phone is one thing I detest changing from time to time. Call me old school, but that's how it has always been. I look for good interface and a few basics in my phone and once I get those I am all good. However simple that my sound, a smart interface and a good camera in a phone is the hardest to find.

So when I had to hunt for my next phone I looked at many candidates but the technical gibberish kept putting me off until I set my eyes on ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser! It was love at first sight. First of all, its a gorgeous looking phone and a great touch screen to boot! I fell in love with this metallic red beauty in an instant. Not to mention, the camera quality is to-die-for.

I am not a technical person; hate changing phones as it always ends up in losing some data here and there. But the beauty of the phone pushed me to go for the Zenfone 2 Laser anyway, and I was so glad to see they already have a built in App to transfer date from other phones. The App just made it a breeze to transfer all my stuff from my old phone! Yey!

I've been using this phone for about a month and the reason I am writing about Zenfone 2 Laser is that it really is a great phone and has surprised me in so many ways. Being a blogger one of the most important features I look for in a phone is good interface, long battery life, good camera and a nice touch screen. I got all this and much for just Rs. 11K! Clear sound quality, long battery life (almost 18 hours+ for me), solid feel and great apps, I couldn't have asked for more. And I've been complemented for my phone by so many people.

 

Beyond the basics, what I like about the phone is the fact that it comes loaded with some very useful and well designed apps made by ASUS itself. This makes the overall interface of the phone seem more integrated and consistent. The apps that I have begun to use the most are:

  • PC Link App – Use your phone from your desktop. It helps me in multitask using my phone and desktop at the same time.

  • SuperNote – a note taking app that allows you to use your finger as a stylus for free hand writing/drawing. I use it all the time to take quick notes, esp., during an ongoing call.

  • Mini-Movie – just select a few pictures from the gallery and click on the movie button and in 2-3 clicks you can create a nice slideshow video with custom sound and text! I just use one of the excellent templates and I am done! Great app!

 

  • Music Player – I actually prefer the ASUS player than Google music apps., its simply better designed and less intrusive.

  • Weather App – I really don't use it that much but its so pretty to look at, I only wish the weather outside was as pretty as the app :D

 

So if you are looking to buy a great phone do check out ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser! You'll love it. I do. And did I mention the free 5GB cloud storage subscription that comes with the phone!? Not a bad deal! ;)
