In my earlier post on the ASUS ZenFestival 2015 at Chijmes, I shared on the launch of ASUS’ flagship model, the ZenFone Selfie in Singapore. In this post, I am going to tell you more about my experiences as a satisfied ASUS ZenFone Selfie user!
The truth is I have always enjoyed taking photos and of course, having my own photos taken. However, I’m never a selfie queen as I can never figure out how to take a decent photo that not only shows my face but also my surroundings – I blame that on my short hands. Fortunately, this problem was solved by the wide-angle lens on the ZenFone Selfie. It has really good 13-megapixel resolution too.
So anyway, as you probably have known through my Official Facebook Page, I decided to bring this popular Taiwan smartphone brand (learnt from my Taiwanese friends that ASUS is called華碩in Chinese) back to Taiwan on my recent sponsored Taiwan trip. I must say that it has really served me well and I didn’t even see the need to bring along my DSLR which is pretty cumbersome.
This ZenFone Selfie comes in three colours: Aqua Blue, Chic Pink and Pure White. I’ve always loved pink so I got a pink one from ASUS. Well, I am never a techie and I know that most of you out there aren’t one too so I will cut down on the technical specifications and just show you the amazing photos that I captured with this ASUS smartphone.
(1) Perfect Selfies and Wefies
The photo on the left is the original version, the middle one is after the brightening of my skin tone whereas the one on the right is after the sharpening of the jawline – all in a few simple steps. You don’t even need to download any photo editing applications on your phone! ❤ Here are some samples of the selfies I took on the Taiwan trip. I am so narcissistic.
One thing about me is that I don’t like applying blusher and the ZenFone Selfie’s Beautification Mode has this option where you could apply different shades of blusher on your cheeks. How cool!And of course, my skin is far from perfect but this ASUS ZenFone Selfie just makes you look as if you have flawless skin without compromising on the photo quality. Two thumbs up! 🙂
(2) Crisp and clear portrait and landscape shots
Look at how vibrant the colours are! Shots taken at the Mini Amazon River boat ride in Tainan. Taken at the Anping Tree House.And of course, proud of my sunset shots at Anping’s Sunset Platform (观夕平台). While we were admiring the sunset, I saw many people struggling with their cameras, trying to set the aperture etc but I had no issues at all with my handy ZenFone Selfie and I managed to capture the amazing sunset shot below. 🙂Also sharing some shots at the CH Garden at Xinshe, Taichung.
(3) Yummy food shots
Next up, let’s move on to the category of food~
If you are a foodie, the ASUS ZenFone Selfie is a phone that I would like to strongly recommend you as it is able to clearly capture details of your food.
This is the highly raved ice cream at the Miyahara Eye Hospital (宫原眼科) in Taichung. It comes with toppings like pineapple tarts, cheesecake and more. Yum yum. 🙂 This is the mini coffin bread (棺材板) at Anping which I really loved!
