ASUS once again connected to their loyal patrons through Zenfestival and now here in Davao City. Zenfestival is basically a quarterly event that ASUS made for Zenites or ASUS Zenfone community for a day that is full of trivias, games, foods and prizes worth winning. Zenfestival 2015 Davao was held in Rekado Restaurant – A new restaurant in the metro that offers filipino cuisine foods with a twist. ASUS invited a few bloggers to experience the Zen Fun (Pun intended please laugh) while knowing more about their phones and a brief history of their company.

I have to be honest with this one. I signed up for this event because i’m a tech savvy on the inside. I’m not the kind of person who just purchases gadgets just because it’s “mainstream” and people are getting it… well, it will be an exception if the features, specs and extra mega-pixel are worth the buy. This is the main reason why I attended the event. I don’t want to stick to just one brand of phone for my entire life. I want to be versatile and try other things – And to my surprise Zenfone made me change my perspective with phones. I’ve heard Zenfones before but haven’t actually held one (Thank you Sir Adrian Chua for letting us use all your phones) and tried one until ASUS held an event just recently. To my surprise the Zenfones didn’t disappoint, especially the Zenfone Selfie where me and my blogger friends are gushing every 2 minutes after taking photos of ourselves spontaneously. Of course, it’s not all about the Camera (But it’s a plus that it has 13 Megapixels of camera – front and back ) , it’s about how a certain phone will fit into my lifestyle as a blogger and a student at the same time.
(With my blogger friends exploring the Zenfone Selfie)
As a blogger, I want High Definition quality of photos in my blog. So, if i’m not using my DSLR, my 8 megapixel phone camera will have to suffice. From Instagram, facebook, twitter and etc. I want my photos to be extra crisp so there is no doubt that the Zenfone Selfie with a 13 megapixel camera and a f/2.0 aperture will save me from blogging needs especially when it comes to OOTD’s, Flat lays and Food-tography. Another is that it has modes in its phone such as: Selfie Panorama, which I will try in my travel soon (Up to 140 degrees), Real time beautification (I enjoyed this mode like seriously af), HDR mode, Low Light Mode, Night Mode, Photo Effects, GIF animation and Time Lapse. Talk about so much more from a single phone right? I need to try it in music festivals soon though. My Blogging needs is all covered with this piece of heaven with a 5.5-inch display and a 1920 x 1080 full resolution! Yay. Also, as a clumsy of person that I am I won’t have a heart break every time I accidentally drop it since it has an Anti-Scratch Corning. Enough said!

When it comes to my student life, MBA can be a little tacky sometimes. With all the case studies, PDF’s and powerpoint presentations it’s just really hard for me to bring a laptop everytime i’m on the go. Upon curiosity, I researched a bit about Zenfone features and I learned that storing PDF files, Case Studies and Presentations is as easy as eating peanuts. Unlike other smart phones where you can’t easily access those things. In that way, my student life will be so much easier and less hustle. Another is that, I won’t have a hard time worrying if the phone’s memory is running out since it has a 32GB ROM and a Microsd Card support up to 128 GB. Talk about hoarding movies and watching it on my spare time! Hahaha
ZEN PHONE DELUXE
I must say I have never been torned between two phones in my entire life. Of the same brand! But if you are looking for a more high-specs kind of phone the Zenfone Deluxe is for you. I mean can you not? The design details on its back just screams “hipster”, and I mean that in a good way.This baby’s internal is pumped up with a 64-bit quad core power from 2.3Ghz Intel Atom Z358 processor and a 4GB of fast memory that delivers the smoothest multitasking experiences for all your apps and games. Also, you won’t worry bringing power banks and hustling to charge because this boost master can juice up to 60% in just 39 minutes. WOW! This phone is ready for anybody’s busy life. Now, this phone proves that it is good on the inside and the outside. A very reliable phone with a reasonable price! Can’t wait to get my own Zenfone Deluxe 🙂
Meanwhile, me and my blogger friends got a little carried away with the phones and maybe, just maybe went overboard with taking so much selfies during the event. Scroll below for hefty of photos:
These two clearly can’t get over the phones.
Zenfone Selfie has this feature where you can adjust everything from eye size to skin complexion. Obviously, me, claudine & sunshine got a little carried away thus doll looking faces. Haha 🙂
Actual Photos taken from zenfone selfie & deluxe:
My final say? Zenfone is a versatile phone that can easily be used by a person. With its high tech specs and durability I for one can tell every peso with this phone is worth spending. Although, I wish they produce more colors of the Zenfone selfie and Zenfone deluxe! Nevertheless, it’s a great phone for everyone. Thank you so much to ASUS team and Sir Josef Cagas for inviting is bloggers, we surely enjoyed Zen Festival 2015 (The trying of phones part mostly). Can’t wait for the next one! 🙂
