Asus ZenFone Live (ZB501KL) Review


Smartphones have revolutionized our world to a very great extent. Nowadays most of the day to day activities are not possible without smartphones and the internet. Asus is emerging as one of the big smartphone and computers manufacturers all around the world.


Before 5-10 years the only purpose of mobile phones is to talk or send messages only but now you can do pretty much anything with your smartphone. You can perform all the activities you do on your computer on your smartphone itself, rather something more is also possible.


At the beginning stage of the smartphone era, the only thing people focused was processing power, RAM storage, and battery life. As this was the only focus in improving the smartphone companies very competitive with each other only on these things. But later some companies started to focus on other things like display, camera, connectivity, etc.


New companies like Oppo and Vivo are focussing on selfie cameras or an improvement in front facing cameras. Asus launched a new smartphone ZenFone Live (ZB501KL) which is specially built for live video. There is a special mode known as beautification mode which adds extra smartness and professional camera look for the live videos in Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.
