Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Camera Review
Rear Camera : 16MP, auto focus, flash, f/2.0
Front Camera : 20MP f/2.0 + 8MP f/2.4, front flash
Video Recording : 1080p (FHD) resolution
The rear camera is of 16MP resolution and if you are using that in low light condition in Auto mode, shots will be bad, really bad, however if you switch to manual mode you will get awesome shots. The front camera is amazing. There are dual cameras placed at a distance and offers 3 modes – normal, wide and portrait.
Now you can use the portrait mode in both normal as well as wide mode. The wide mode captures more area and is perfect for group selfies. But for individual selfies in portrait mode, select normal mode. Selfie in Portrait mode is just amazing, looks like taken from a DSLR camera – check the sample images below and yes these are taken with the front dual camera. This handset can shoot FHD videos. Overall camera quality is excellent.
Camera Rating : 4.3 out of 5
