Futuristic Asus Zenfone 2

I am a Dreamer, Day-Dreamer to be specific. I always dream about people , things , situations molded according to my whims and fancy. Take for example people. I want , wish each and everybody to be efficient, perfect, faultless, powerful, understanding, and look like Zillion dollars. Is it possible? My Utopian concept is more rigid when it comes to gadgets as I am technologically challenged. I wish my smart phone to have numerous advanced, futuristic features and still it must be user-friendly.

I had this ' Aha...'  moment of realizing my Utopian dream about smart phone , when I read the news about ZenFone2 launch.   

" Asus unveiled ZenFone 2, the flagship smart phone in the new-generation ZenFone family, with a gorgeous all-new ergonomic design, a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, 13 MP / 5 MP PixelMaster camera , 2.3 GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor with 4 GB RAM and 4G / LTE connectivity. ZenFone 2 delivers powerful all-round performance." ...That's it.

Let's tally ... I wished for

1. Zillion Dollar Looks : ASUS ZenFone2 boasts of stunningly luxurious, ultra-thin Ergonomic Arc design. It vouches for the spirit of Zen with rich brushed-metal finish and distinctive concentric-circle detailing. ZenFone2 spells aesthetics with graceful curved case.The curvature ( a curved back and rounded edges )offers comfortable secure grip, intuitive control and convenience through the rear-mounted volume control key for the user's index finger-operating. It is bold yet elegant. Most importantly , we have a choice of Osmium Black, Glacier Gray, Glamour Red, Sheer Gold, Ceramic White colors to select our favorite ZenFone 2. Special Transfusion and Illusion covers are available to match our styles. I would definitely love to show-off my Asus ZenFone 2.

2. Power : ASUS ZenFone2  is World's 1st smart phone with 4 GB RAM with 32 GB of internal storage ( expandable ) around 26 GB is user accessible, paired with 2.3 GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor 73580 which can deliver up to seven times faster gaming performance than its predecessor.A 60ms touch response time ensures lag-free input and OpenGL 3.o provides incredible gaming performance

ZenFone 2 has built-in 4G/LTE connectivity for super fast data speed of up to 150 Mbit/s plus 802.11ac Wi-Fi for stutter-free video-streaming and music. Dual-SIM capacity with Dual Active technology allows us to have 2 active phones.

ZenFone 2 has high-capacity ( 3000mAh ) battery, which provides more than a full day of use on a single charge. Plus fast-charge technology enables recharging to 60% battery level in 39 minutes.
Wow... all these features make my ZenFone 2 so much more powerful.

3. EfficiencyASUS ZenFone2 has sharp 5.5-inch FullHD IPS display with high density and a wide viewing angle, guaranteeing lifelike photos , videos and superb-looking apps. ASUS TruVivid technology enhances display performance with brilliant colors. The display has an ultra-narrow bezel for a maximized viewing experience and is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for super resistance to damage. An anti-fingerprint coating reduces friction by 30%. It offers a luxurious, smooth feel to touch gestures. I am sure my ZenFone 2 would be convenient for my mother and father as well

4. Camera : ASUS ZenFone2 has 13-mp rear camera and a 5-mp front Pixel-Master camera, which guarantees excellent. high-resolution results. This means ZenFone 2 would be a perfect partner for shooting group-photos / natural landscapes / sports-activities / candid moments / portraits / flowers / fashion-events-pageants ... even in low-light conditions with pixel-merging technology to capture up to 400% brighter photos at night without the flash i.e. anything under or without the Sun and everything over the Earth. The rear camera's video mode can record 1080p ( full HD ) videos.I would love to carry my Asus ZenFone 2, wherever I go to capture the Bold and Beautiful.

5. Understanding : ASUS ZenFone2  Zen UI - Running Android Lollipop with ZenUI atop the Zenfone 2 has numerous Asus proprietary apps. ZenUI has various advanced features such as ZenMotion ( Intuitive touch gestures ), SnapView ( Security feature ), Trend Micro security, ZenUI Instant Updates, which enhances ZenFone2's usability, ensure security and privacy. ZenFone 2 delivers a seamless user experience. ZenFone 2 is the world's 1st smart phone to give all the ability to completely customize it to match their personal preferences , including ZenUI's launcher, themes, fonts, icons and more. A technologically challenged person like me would love to experiment and benefit from this user-friendly ZenFone2

Plus .....   The back panel of ZenFone 2 has a speaker grill at the bottom, which produces clear results even in noisy environments.

A Flash, Camera lens, Volume key and Asus logo give the back panel of ZenFone 2, a designer look. 

There are slots for SIM cards ( 4G and 2G ) and a microSD card slot that supports the memory card up to 64 GB below the removable panel

Oh.. my... I can go on and on ... praising the qualities of ASUS ZenFone2  which redefine my smart phone experience to the Utopian summit.

I just  #CantWait4Zenfone2. What about you ?  To get latest updates on ZenFone 2 follow @ASUS_India
