Reviews for the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie ZD553KL

70% Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
With the Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie, the Selfie series is accessible to a lot of people. Users get a decent front camera and live beautification mode can be useful if you are into vlogging or doing Facebook Live videos. For the price, the ZenFone 4 Selfie has decent hardware, but the performance of the rear camera is below average. If you intend to take a lot of selfies or use the live beautification mode, then the Zenfone 4 Selfie works as a good tool. If you don't mind spending more, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Dual Camera at Rs 14,999 has dual front cameras consisting of one 20-megapixel selfie shooter and another 8-megapixel one with a wide-angle lens. You also get more RAM and storage, though we haven't tested the phone out yet, so we can't speak for its real world performance. If you are on a strict budget and looking for an all-rounder, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (Review) would be our pick.

ASUS Zenfone 4 Selfie Review
Source: Yugatech English
If you can get past its lackluster design and dated display, you will find a device that performs decently and packs a punch with its selfie capabilities. With similar internals as the Zenfone 4 Max, we’d even go so far as to say that it’s a Zenfone 4 Max with less battery capacity and an improved front camera system. With an SRP of Php13,995, it doesn’t break the bank, but the only way for you to justify purchasing it is if you want an ASUS device that can take great selfies – and in that regard, the Zenfone 4 Selfie is awesome.

76% ASUS Zenfone 4 Selfie Review: Is It Better Than The Selfie Pro?
Source: Manila Shaker English
If you’re the type who loves taking selfies or taking photos with a big group and you’re looking for a reasonably affordable phone that can capture moments – both in front of you and behind the scenes – then the Zenfone 4 Selfie is a good choice. It’s a pretty good alternative to the slightly more expensive Selfie Pro, which is P5,000 more expensive. But if you can afford it a bit more and you want a phone that can deliver slightly better results, then go ahead and pick the latter.

ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Review: A New (Selfie) Challenger Appears
Source: Unbox English
ASUS made a mistake by not continuing their original ZenFone Selfie when they launched it two years ago. That was an oversight on their part, just as the market for selfie phones exploded thanks to their rivals. ASUS has rectified that mistake, offering an extremely solid selfie offering at Php 13,995. The biggest challenge right now is trying to convince users to shy away from their competitors and see value in the products that they’re offering.

ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie, Selfie Pro Quick Review: Let The Selfie Wars Begin!
Source: Unbox English
ASUS ZenUI is still on board, and while we’d still prefer a lighter UI overall this year’s iteration is much better compared to the bloat-ware ridden mess last year. There’s only a few additional apps that are installed when we got the device, which makes for a more pleasant experience.
