#OneDayOfZen with Asus' Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0

While the rest of the metropolis are still recuperating from the trauma they acquired from the “carmageddon” that happened during the APEC Leaders’ Forum here in Manila, ASUS Philippines just know how to put everything in order again – at least for some people like me – and share a Zen day worth capturing with their latest smartphone.

Held at Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila, along with other bloggers and media personalities, we were taken back in time inside the Walled City while holding on to our very own Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0. Would you believe that my first impression when I got mine was “This is gonna be pricey.” But, I’m glad I was wrong. IT’S JUST PHP 7,295.00!!!

Possessing an ergonomic design that offers a nice grip, especially compared with my thin-yet-flatly designed iPhone 6, which I often easily drop due to the flat and slippery surface, Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0 offers a handy size, weight and feel.

One of the features that was highlighted that day was its 8-megapixel camera on the back guided with a laser auto-focus - a first in the market that offers at this price range. It also has a 5-megapixel camera on the front that would make “selfie” taking to a higher, clearer and more vibrant level!
