Asus is among the few smartphone makers that's diversified its product lineup to suit different needs. It has tried to cover the entire market with products ranging from the Asus ZenFone Go to the Asus ZenFone 3 Ultra (Review). It has products in different series that tackle a particular user need. For example, the ZenFone Max series that focuses primarily on battery, the ZenFone Laser series that prioritises camera, and so no. The recently launched Asus ZenFone Live marks the start of a new series that claims to make you look good on social media.
Multiple phones from various manufacturers offer to do just that thanks to beautification modes of their own. However these beauty modes are restricted to photos only. What the ZenFone Live claims to do differently is to let you have the artificial beauty enhancement feature in live videos. So will the Asus ZenFone Live make you look good online? And how is the rest of the package? We find out.
Asus is known to use the same design for phones in a particular series. So with the ZenFone Live, instead of a new look Asus seems to have stuck to its ZenFone 3 series design. The ZenFone Live is available in three colours Rose Pink, Black, and Gold. The phone has rounded sides and edges that make it comfortable to hold and grip. We also found it to be light, tipping the scales at 120gms. Asus has used plastic as the primary material for the phone and it does not feel all that premium.
The ZenFone Live sports a 5-inch display along with 2.5D glass that curves at the edges. It has the front facing camera, selfie flash, proximity sensors and the metal mesh earpiece above the display. Asus has opted for capacitive touch button for navigation instead of on screen buttons. Sadly, these buttons are not backlit and we had our fair share of missed hits in the dark.
The volume and power/ lock buttons on the ZenFone Live are positioned on the right and have the same textured finish. A different texture would have made it easier to distinguish between the two. On the left side is the hybrid SIM tray that can house two Nano SIM cards or one Nano SIM along with a microSD card.
The Asus ZenFone Live has a Micro-USB port, a single speaker grill, and a microphone port at the bottom and a 3.5mm audio socket and secondary microphone on the top. At the back, a 13-megapixel camera sits above the single LED flash and a metallic Asus logo is embossed near the middle. The ZenFone Live misses out on a fingerprint sensor and that isn't a positive sign.Read More...
