In my last posts around #MyAsusZenFone I did tell you that when  Asus Zenphone 5 came for the review,  I had given  it to my Daddy to try his hands at this new smartphone. Since he really clicked some bright and colorful pictures, the camera looked capable and I decided to try my hands at it.  As a blogger, I consider a smartphone smart only when it clicks nice pictures both in the day and in the night.

Asus Zenphone 5 has a Corning® Gorilla® Glass, GloveTouch and the new ASUS ZenUI along with a  8 megapixel camera, 5-element optical formula lens,  f/2.0 aperture and ASUS’ PixelMaster with interesting enhancement features too. The beautification, low light, turbo mode are quite handy. HDR mode is effective indeed. I noticed that the phone covers the brightness and colors quite effectively.

Over a few days, I captured night pictures with the camera and you can see some interesting results below.

This open dining area in Hauz Khas had colorful lights and Asus Zenphone 5 captured it well


This is a food picture clicked in another restaurant in Delhi that has dim lights and just a glowing yellow bulb that hangs above each table


With Asus Zenphone 5, this was again clicked at an open dining place

The close -up picture of this ice-cream treat. Zenphone 5 captured the colors pretty well Human figurines in the party lights- Color accuracy and uniformity is pretty decent.

Its not that these are the best shots taken by a smartphone but I was happy with the above pictures because at the pricing Asus Zenphone comes, it definitely makes a good bet.

  • The low light mode can be used for video recording in the night too
  • The ZenFone 5 utilizes a Sony BSI CMOS sensor
  • Largan lens which are used by top mobile brands are also used in Zenphone


This is the third post for #MyAsusZenFone
