Mr. Jonney seemed to be thrilled about the fact and that India has been a resourceful market with already a lot of users.
Like any good business people , they were concerned about the bottom line.

ZenFone 2 Deluxe introduces a stunning new multifaceted polygonal design aesthetic to the ZenFone 2, offering beauty and power in abundance. ZenFone 2 Laser also includes laser auto-focus technology in its 13MP PixelMaster camera for clear, near-instant shots. ZenFone Selfie is the ultimate choice for selfies, with its twin 13MP PixelMaster cameras and a dual-color, dual-LED Real Tone flash at both front and rear.

Among all these launches I was super impressed with the Zen Phone Selfie - Sonakshi Sinha took over the stage to demonstrate her love for selfies.

The Zen Phone Selfie-See the Perfect You  (My personalfavourite) has a dua l13MP PixelMaster cameras, dual-color, dual-LED Real Tone flash both front and rear, plus laser auto-focus for ultra-fast shots with complete clarity. We saw some super comparative on low light selfies, and the difference it made to give us the best selfie experience. The best part is that, it has an 5.5 inch Full HD display. Check out the below comparative in Pictures(as mentioned earlier compared with iphone 6 plus)

The front-facing PixelMaster camera has a huge 13MP resolution and an f/2.2-aperture, 88-degree wide-angle lens to capture more of every smile. The unique Selfie Panorama mode enables selfies with an outlook of up to 140 degrees, so everything and everyone becomes part of the shot.

ZenFone Selfie’s rear camera is just as advanced, with a large f/2.0 aperture lens for superior low-light shots.ZenFone Selfie also delivers superb macro photography that works on subjects as close as 6cm, plus rear laser auto-focus to compose shots in the blink of an eye, making it perfect for those capturing nature, birds, insects etc. I must say that the clarity of the pics is exceptionally good, proof check out the below selfies which we took backstage with Sonakshi Sinha, and you can see how the pics turned out so well while I took some crappy, shaky  selfies with my iphone 6 which you can check out on my Instagram page  !!!

Spot Me ;)
In the end , what I felt was that Asus clearly remain committed to keep the prices affordable for all the models  and a great spectacle for its product launches. The massive  "Zen Festival " banners at the launch and a walking "Zennie" helped every common man present there the use of the phones and pad and we all walked away thinking what a great event it was(one the best phone launches I have attended so far )
I hope that the next time you are thinking to invest in a smartphone for a whole lot less money than the latest iphone , you could find this post helpful in making up your decisions for a better mobile experience.
