Asus ZenFone Zoom – power of DSLR in your pocket!


Recently I reviewed the Asus ZenFone Zoom which is christened as World’s thinnest 3X optical-zoom smartphone. Some of it’s top features are Optical image stabilization and laser auto-focus capture which takes total clarity pictures at lightning speed. ZenFone zoom with ultra-thin 5mm edges gives access to DSLR-like photography experiences which we can store in our pocket!

ZenFone Zoom uses 3X optical zoom with an innovative 10-element HOYA lens arrangement that delivers exceptional clarity and enables close-ups with up to 12X total magnification. With built-in optical image stabilization (OIS) to eliminate shakes and blurred shots, and powered by a high-performance quad-core Intel Atom processor with 4GB RAM for ultra-fast performance, ZenFone Zoom packs DSLR-style shooting experiences into a metal unibody that tapers to a mere 5mm, so it slides comfortably into a pocket.

Powered by the 2.5GHz Intel® Atom™ processor Z3590, the new Asus Zenfone Zoom is a premium device that raises the bar with its revolutionary camera capabilities, high performance, stunning graphics and great battery life. It also provides Pocket-sized DSLR experience as it has Periscopic innovation, Smart FSI sensor, 52MP Super Resolution, 5cm macro shots and pro-style Manual mode.

Don’t you worry about the performance because it has 64-bit quad-core processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB storage, 250Mbps LTE, BoostMaster fast-charging and Full HD display providing a monster performance!

The innovative 10-element digital eye was created by the optics experts at Hoya. Glass, synthetic and prismatic lenses are meticulously configured in a dual-prism periscope arrangement to maximize incoming light and capture the best possible photo quality. Built-in optical image stabilization (OIS) ensures sharper, steadier shots every time, even at maximum 3X optical magnification. ZenFone Zoom’s OIS also gives smartphone photographers the confidence to shoot with slower shutter speeds for longer exposures, equivalent to up to four stops — and that means clearer, brighter photos.

The rear camera benefits from dual-LED Real Tone flash to create the most natural illumination for indoor portraits, generating the perfect combination of yellow and white to capture lifelike colors and skin tones. ZenFone Zoom’s rear lens also has laser auto-focus to point and shoot with total clarity in just 0.03 seconds.

ZenFone Zoom excels at macro photography, enabling extreme close-ups as near as 5cm (2in) to reveal new and unseen worlds of detail, and is ready to turn pro with one tap — with Manual mode allowing instant adjustment of shutter speed, exposure value, white balance, ISO and a host of other professional-grade settings.

Network specifications are top notch – Featuring LTE Category 4+ for download speeds up to 250Mbps, and a 60ms touch-response time, ZenFone Zoom delivers fast, fluid experience anywhere; and with a high-capacity 3000mAh battery, users are able to work and play from dawn to dusk — and beyond. ZenFone Zoom also benefits from exclusive ASUS BoostMaster technology for turbo-speed charging that takes the battery from zero to 60% in just 39 minutes.

You need not worry about dropping Zenfone Zoom and breaking it in the process. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 display offers twice the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, a 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use — making it safer and stronger than ever before.

Pricing is just around Rs. 37,999 only. It is not just available online on Flipkart but also at ASUS exclusive stores.
