Asus Zenfone 3 Laser Review

Asus Zenfone 3 Laser

I remember The LG G3 was amongst the first flagship Android smartphone to have a laser autofocus system inside it. We even reviewed the phone itself check it out here. That was amongst the best benchmark in 2014. Later Asus came out last year with a dedicated smartphone named Zenfone Laser and pitched it exactly at the budget phones. The impressive part that strategy worked extremely well. Now it’s the Zenfone 3 Laser review successor to the last one.

Build of the Asus Zenfone 3 laser

I will say things aren’t changed from the Asus Zenfone 3 max unit. Yes, the Zenfone 3 laser design wasn’t much different. The only thing which I notice the phone was lighter as it had a less battery compare to the max and it was thin to it. The metal design inside that price point of the device is seen now much. Asus adopting and be with the market is what standards out. Much of the camera dedicated I think it would have been much better if Max and laser would have been same and focused much over experience That will be totally a game changer. No need to differentiate and much of market is well competitive now in the Indian smartphone market.

Performance of the Zenfone 3 Laser

It scored an impressive 44000 score in Antutu as it powered with Low power Snapdragon 435 inside. I would love to see 650 or 652 or 625 a battery efficient with the performance inside. Still, it manages off to deliver a smooth experience but still lacks a bit at high-end games at the highest peak. AAA games work well at mids. The Geekbench on the single core played an 650 score while multicore at 2000.  Also, a ten finger touch display was seen. The device doesn’t aim specifically at performance rather much at the camera which we will talk in a bit. The Software experience wasn’t different as to max or even the Zenfone 3 unit. It also had pushed regular updates for the increase in experience. I would say It still needs improvement like the newly launched Zenfone 3s max ships with Nougat out of the box.


The camera had an impressive laser auto-focus, and indeed it did the part well. It seriously had an impressive laser autofocus which is what every manufacturer should include and mainly effects at shutter speed and quick capture of the right photo at the right moment. The images were of approx 3 Mb for a 13MP f/2.0 camera. Talking of image processing and image clarity. The image had a high contrast, and the colour was close to perfect, yet it didn’t have an excellent dynamic range it entirely depend upon manual focus. It is concentrated at mid-range, and some smartphone indeed do these things well. It is close to it and can do better but looks to be for the purpose of a better smartphone in the next budget category its restricted. At low light, it struggles but compared to predecessor it does well.


It disperses out to me with a mixed feeling. A much off camera-centric and not for recommended for the gamer. If you have regular social media and email usage then no issues will be faced by you.
