The first smartphone on today’s special review category is the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. I have to really admit, this smart device is a selfie expert. The best selling point of this smartphone is its sellfie department. The rear camera has a lot of muscles in its body framework but this front camera just takes over the whole show. You must be wondering why a selfie camera will cause so much fuss. Let’s me be your guide as we take the tour known as Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro.

Without much ado, the display size of the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro has a display size of 5.5 inches. That’s what I call the bomb! The 5.5 inches display is what one will expect from a smartphone with class. No one wants a smartphone that will not be able to display images or videos largely. The screen display type is the Full HD AMOLED display. With the way the LCD IPS display types are taking over, one would have thought this will also come with an LCD IPS display type. Its display resolution is also on a high, as it boasts of 1920 x 1080 pixels for the clarity of texts and icons.
Asus Zenfone 4 Selie Pro has a dual camera at the top bezel, which is on the right hand side of the earpiece. The dual camera is arranged in a horizontal fashion. On the othyer side of the earpiece is the proximity sensor and the LED flash. The audio jack of the smartphone is situated at the top of the device. And as most would have expected, the volume key is on the right hand side of the device. The power button is also on the same side as the volume button. At the bottom bezel, is the fingerprint sensor which sits comfortably at the centre of the bottom bezel. The rectangular shape of the device is one that most will have expected. The body design is well oriented with a metal unibody. The rear region also has a dual camera. The dual camera is located at the top left region of the device. The dual camera is arranged in a horizontal fashion. Right beside the dual camera is a LED flash. The Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro also has a sleek weight, as it weighs just 144g. Its display dimensions are 154.02 x 74.83 x 7mm. The colour variants the smartphone boasts of are Red and Gold.
The processor of the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. This is a good one from Asus because this Snapdragon 625 chipset is one of the latest processors from Snapdragon. The processor also has 8 cores, that is, it is an Octa-Core processor. The processor speed is also a top scorer as it goes beyond the 1.2+ GHz into the 2.0GHz processor speed. Well, that’s super fast I must confess. And as for the graphics that will emanate from the smartphone, the Adreno 506 GPU is made available.
OPERATING SYSTEM (OS)
The device operates on none other than an Android OS. The Android OS isn’t just any Android OS but it’s the latest Android OS – the Android 7.0 Nougat. The device also makes use of a UI that’s unique to Asus which is the Zen UI 4.0.
The battery capacity of the smartphone is 3,000mAh. This is a “no-no” for heavy smartphone users. Definitely, light and average smartphone users will find this device very comfortable to make use of. However, the use of a power bank will make the device very durable for heavy smartphone users. Besides this 3,000mAh battery capacity makes me question top smartphone makers choice of using average battery capacity for these smartphones.
This is the region that I called the selling point of the device. The front camera is the major selling point, so I’ll leave the best for the last. Starting with the rear camera, the smartphone has a 16MP sensor equipped to capture beautiful images and record videos excellently. Also endowed with the camera are features such as Panorama, HDR and autofocus detection. The rear camera also has the audacity to boast of a dual LED flash for brightening images in off-light and on-light conditions. The quality of the rear camera alone will make you fall in love with the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. The front camera will definitely wow you. The front camera is proud of not just a single camera but a dual camera of 24MP sensor and 5MP sensor. The combo makes it 29MP. Whoa! That’s a fantastic bloomer. The selfie images taken with the camera will just tickle your frenzy and give you goose bumps. However, it doesn’t come alone; a lone LED flash is also availed to it for the purpose of brightening the images and videos taken with the selfie camera.

This region is also another category on the smartphone that keeps the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro a major market competitor. The internal memory capacity of the smartphone is 64GB. This ensures that files such as music (mp3, wav, m4a, mka), videos (mp4, mpeg4, avi, mkv, H.263, H.264 player) documents (docx files and pdf) and images (jpg, jpeg,png) have enough space to contain them. We all know the Oliver Twists amidst this world population will still not be satisfied with the storage which is the bone of contention behind Asus making the availability of extending up to 128GB with the aid of a micro SD card. The RAM category of the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is also gallant. A 4GB capacity RAM is bestowed upon this device. The 4GB RAM will ensure that the apps will run smoothly, and the switching between the apps will also be sleek.
The connectivity of Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro was well taken care of. First of all, the SIM slots were made to be double, that is, it has a dual SIM functionality. The network types that are supported on it re the 2G network (GSM), the 3G network (WCDMA) and the noisiest of them all, the 4G network (LTE) with VoLTE. They are the noisiest because as we all know, the 4G network type is what’s making waves in the data world right now.
