Essential Travel Gear: The New ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0

Batteries charged, DSLR camera and lenses packed, and my new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0... 

...and you're ready for a new adventure. And a whole new way of seeing the world.

Building on the successful ZenFone 5, last year's undisputed favorite smartphone, the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 takes your smartphone experience further with its impressive features and camera. Staying connected, and seeing the world in a whole new way, all in one stylishly designed and sleek smartphone making it one of those "you can't leave home without it" travel essentials for that out-of-town trip, or simply a stop at the mall.

It's a combination of elements and features that make the new ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 a real travel essential. First, it's the handy and compact size, with its sleek, modern and stylish form highlighted by its unique curved back design that not only looks good on any flat surface but ergonomically easy to pick up and comfortably grasp in your hand. Just 3.9 mm at its thinnest edge, yet loaded with so many features. The elegant hairline design and metallic finish adds to the smart and contemporary look of the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0.

But the compact size is deceptive, packing in loads of big features to help you stay connected, document your adventures, and share your experiences, all with the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0. And all with just a touch or light tap on the screen.

The large 5-inch HD (720-1280p) IPS Display is ideal in rendering text and graphics in all usage scenarios, with its impressive 72% screen-to-body ratio, a whole 10% better than the first generation ZenFone 5 and 4% more than the iPhone 6 Plus. The Full Screen Lamination with ASUS TruVivid Technology and 20nm Anti-Fingerprint Coating with Glove Touch Support combine to deliver maximum clarity with minimum reflectiveness, brightness and touch responsiveness for a comfortable and enjoyable viewing experience. And the screen is fast and responsive, the quickest in the market with its record-breaking 60 millisecond response time leaving other Android phones behind with their slower response range of 80-100ms. The touch panel algorithm is also programmed to distinguish between water drops and grease and your finger, so that the screen is still responsive even when wet.

The new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 is not only fast, but built tough too. The large display comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection against accidental damages. This makes the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 the only smartphone with the best screen protection in its price range and category. The Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is significantly stronger than its earlier third generation version, with twice the drop-damage resistance, 2.5X increase in retained strength, and 85% less likely to break in daily use to keep in pace with your many daily adventures.

But it's the camera that truly allows you to see what other can't see, with its 8-megapixel camera on the back guided with the innovative laser autofocus technology, coupled with the Dual LED Real Tone Flash and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The lightning fast infrared laser auto focus measures distances in a mere 0.3 seconds for the quickest snap in the category.

Low light, indoor lighting, or close-ups, the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 is ready for any situation, with its fast f2.0 Aperture Toshiba Lens. And using the camera of the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 is fun and easy, fast and responsive, in any situation.

All these in one compact unit.  

Sleek and stylish combining both form and function in an elegant design, with loads of features and built tough to withstand the rigors of your daily routine, the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 is an essential gagdet to stay connected and see the world in a whole new way...
