Two Monday’s ago, my brother had wed (congratulations to the both of you guys #JanTel101010) and being a part of the entourage, I couldn’t be seen carrying around camera gear during the ceremony… cleverly concealed in my left jacket pocket however was the Asus Zenfone 3 and I haven’t been more at ease.
With me was the 5.5″ variant in Sapphire Black and this had been a perfect avenue to really highlight it’s photo making capability.
Here’s a quick refresher on the Php18,995 mid-range smartphone from Asus: 8-Core Snapdragon 625 2.0GHz / Adreno 506 / 5.5″ FHD / 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass / 64GB/4GB… what follows are the important bits… the camera/s: the Zenfone 3 is equipped with a 16MP f2.0 6P Largan Lens and SonyIMX 298 sensor and thats not even the best part yet – this camera uses OIS and EIS in concert for photos and videos respectively to grab nice shots even in low lighting conditions.
As much as I’d have loved to not take photos during the ceremony, mine was a unique vantage point that made it impossible to resist. Below are some of the photos straight from the Zenfone 3 sensor:All the shots from this series are as SOOC as they can be, only cropped for composition and watermarked. The Zenfone 3 had been a very convenient carry-on during the entire event, the photos coming from the device has sufficient data in it for any enhancement one might deem fit.
Handling the camera was a breeze especially with fingerprint activation (double tapping fires up the camera swiftly). It’s dual glass facades make it a breeze to pull out and put it back on my pocket and its surprisingly not that receptive to fingerprint marks keeping itself nice and presentable. This was a practical test of real-world utilization and the Zenfone 3 achieves this with with flying colors.
