ASUS Zenfone Live L1: Review & Camera Test with Sample Photos

Today on the blog, I will be sharing with you guys my thoughts on the ASUS ZENFONE LIVE L1.

Last week, I unboxed and gave you guys my first impressions of my new phone (check out the post HERE). After a week of getting to know this phone, I must say that I’m really loving it.
As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, the first feature and perhaps, the most important for me, is the camera. Although I usually take a mirrorless camera with me to events and photo shoots, I usually use my phone for real-time posts and the like so it's important that my phone camera is able to produce post-worthy pictures. In this aspect, my new ASUS ZENFONE LIVE L1 does not disappoint.
It's standard 5 megapixel front camera takes clear, crisp selfies under daylight conditions, though understandably, despite the HDR feature that allows you to brighten pictures, the quality slides under low light conditions.

The real winner though is the rear 13-megapixel camera of this phone, which is in one word - AMAZING. Whether under daylight or low-light conditions, be it portrait, landscape, or macro, all the photos came out crisp and clear. I also tried taking photos of my naughty furry friends who refused to keep still for a shot, yet surprisingly their photos came out great!

My new ASUS ZENFONE LIVE L1 also scored major points with its 18.9 HD+ screen that raises the bar as far as one's viewing experience goes with its bold, vibrant colors. I thoroughly enjoy watching videos or reviewing pictures with it.
The battery life is also top-notch. With a 3000mAh capacity, you can go as long as 28 days on standby mode.
Other features that I also liked was the “Face Unlock” feature, which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Neural processor that allows for accurate scanning and the triple-slot tray that can hold 2 nano sims and a microSD card up to 2 TB.
Overall, the features and build quality alone of the ASUS ZENFONE LIVE L1 far exceeds it's price point of PHP5,995 so you'll surely be getting way more than your money's worth!
