It is the flagship model of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Series that features most advanced front camera system featuring the Sony IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor, which has twice as many light-capturing photodiodes as conventional sensors of the same resolution.

Looks and Design:

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has a contemporary, sleek style and features an elegant, seamless metal unibody made using advanced nano-molding technology (NMT). On the front, it features a 0.2s fast fingerprint sensor that supports 5 fingers and detects fingerprints in all 360 degrees. With a visually frameless 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen and an edge that’s only 6.85mm thin, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro strikes the perfect balance between beauty and comfort. A bright 500 nits AMOLED display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, and a color gamut that is wider than 100% NTSC makes photos, videos, and other content look as vibrant as real life.

Performance:

ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is powered by a 64-bit, 2GHz, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB RAM and desktop-grade Adreno 506 graphics to deliver smooth and responsive camera performance for the best photography experiences, as well as run the latest apps and games with ease. A 3000mAh battery ensures that you enjoy a day worth of uninterrupted productivity and photography, and it also supports fast-charging. Its 24MP DuoPixel selfie camera comes  with a ƒ/1.8 aperture Sony IMX362 dual-pixel image sensor with 1.4µm pixel size. and ASUS SuperPixel Engine that enables users to capture 2X-brighter low-light selfies and astonishingly detailed 4K UHD selfie videos. ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro also comes with a 120° super-wide-angle wefie camera that makes it easy to fit multiple people or the surrounding environment into the shot, perfect for social occasions and travel. The front Softlight LED flash ensures the user captures true skin tones. The 16MP camera with Sony IMX351 sensor at the rear supports EIS and 4K Videos along with RAW file support. ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro also comes with a 120° widest-angle wefie camera with 200%-wider field of view that enables users to fit their friends easily into the frame for a more social and fun selfie experience. The wide-angle view is also helpful for selfies where users want to capture their environment or a scenic background in their photo. ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is available in three beautiful colors: Rouge Red, Sunlight Gold and Deepsea Black. In terms of image quality, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro performs quite well. With the manual mode, I was able to capture those stars at night, no RAW support though. The selfie cameras perform quite well under broad daylight, low-light photography will be a challenge for the phone. Personally, I enjoy using the secondary wide-angle camera to take selfies, all thanks to the fisheye effect. One more thing, its rear camera does come with portrait mode, but the quality is just average.

Verdict: Quality device with premium look and top of the line specs.
