Design and Build:
The Zenfone 2 Laser comes with 5.5 inch screen and weighs 170 grams with 10.8mm thickness and in no way a slim or small phone.
One of larger 5.5 inch devices in the market thanks to thick bezels around the device and also capacitive buttons device is curved on the back which is the only positive thing when comes to design of the device.
Device has volume buttons on the back like the LG G3 and G4 but has power button on the top top which is a very strange decision and makes reaching the power button a considerable chore considering the size of the device
Overall device seems too big and bulky for 5.5 inch device and Asus could have done a better job on the same even considering the fact that it's a budget device.
The Zenfone 2 Laser comes with 13MP Camera on the back with Dual tone Flash and 5MP Autofocus camera on the front taking care of the selfies.
As the name suggests the phone comes with a Laser auto focus on the back which helps with faster focus and overall the Camera like most devices in this price range is quite moderate and takes decent pictures in well lit area and starts to fail as the light reduces but its not a bad camera for its price range.
The Zenfone 2 Laser comes with 5.5 inch IPS LCD screen with 720 x 1280 Resolution with 267 PPI and covered by Gorilla Glass 4.
Device has good viewing angles pixel density is a little less but doesn’t matter much at this price point and overall pretty good display.
The phone is powered by 64 bit Snapdragon 410 Chipset and performs quite well.
Since the phone is only powering a 720p screen the device handles most tasks with ease and day to day tasks are done with little to no issue.
Phone also exhibits no signs of heating issues and can handle most games with ease and even some high graphic ones with some frame drops here and there but playable to most bit.
Zenfone 2 Laser runs on Android 5.0 with Asus’s own Zen UI.
Zen UI is not heavily skinned like Samsung touchwiz but still the device comes with considerable amount of bloatware which you can’t get rid of which is not an enjoyable experience at all.
Asus really needs to tone down their UI bring closer to stock and stop adding Bloatware which cannot be uninstalled.
Phone comes with removable 3000 mAh battery and thanks to the combination of a good processor and 720p screen the phone is one the best devices in the market at this price point if you are looking for stellar battery life.
It easily lasts a day with moderate usage and even some of the heaviest users can get a days worth of use on one charge without too much trouble.
Zenfone 2 Laser is a great device at its price point.
Good performance, top notch battery life and decent camera make up for some of the flaws on design aspects of the device.
