In a world full of trends, still, everyone is born to stand out.
Eversince I did a lifestyle blog, people are wondering until now why I do not venture into technical review since this is what I do eversince.
From gathering requirements, developing, installation, testing both the apps and hardware were some of my everday, actually my life to be exact.
Maybe I like to explore more that I did not know and getting the soft side of me not only that nerdy kind of girl eversince – that is from food, travel and anything related that is about discover.
Like technology, change grows drastically and innovatively.
One cannot escape with it especially mobile phones wth the evolution of Selfie Generation as part of popularity nowadays not only keeping a real-time online scenario.
Why a a craze about selfie technology?
- Expresssing self-esteem, a way of interpersonal talk to motivate a good impression.
- Way to boost confidence that develops an identity that you’re longing for.
- A reflection of happiness that conveys cheerful moments
When I got on hand to unbox ZenFone 4 Selfie, yes I got this meaning to thoroughly check this selfie function that would meet today’s phenomenon.
I would like to concentrate on usability testing meaning:
- measuring the capacity to meet its intended purpose
- personal interaction design
From there, it gives direct input on how real users like me will benefit in using this gadget. As much as possible, I would also like to describe it in layman’s term to make it more understandable.
Light, simple and fast.
I tried also this unit to my young millenial kiddo if she can comprehend to use it well.
She just started her video blog using a mirrorless camera and it would be right time to test it in a mobile phone.
Yes, based on mobile application technical testing capabiliy, a gadget nowadays must be tried even to a 5-year old who can read already or an elder who aged between 55 years old up to know if they are able to navigate it.
In a matter of time, my daughter got a quicker result on all apps she installed with ZenFone 4 Selfie.
She even did various situaltional video blogs just using this mobile phone to test the durability function which I like to share all of them here.

She might not understand this, but all these are possible because of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 1.4GHz octa-core processor of the mobile phone.
Did you see also the clarity taking a selfie video?
Its significant component is the dual front camera that made selfie mode sooo interesting that we tested not only a single hour but making it a whole day affair with the mobile phone.
It did not also bother to heat at all even we bought it outside where scourging sun was also up on that day.
With the 20MP, the more pixels you have, the more closely the image resembles to the original.
Let’s check the other selfie camera.
The 8MP wide-angle with 120 degrees view would capture a wide scenery and more people to include.
Comparing here using the main and the wide angle below when we travelled in Baler, Quezon:
Using the main selfie camera:
Using the wide angle selfie view:
As I said, taking videos can fit the environment that’s perfect to document an event which was personally taken by my kiddo developed mainly using only this gadget.
This was a scene when she took the National Pampering Day by Nailaholics inside the mall where natural light is limited.
The Softlight which is the LED Flash supplies an amount of light to fill in around.
To check how reliable it was, we took a selfie shots at Marian Orchard, Balete, Lipa Batangas.
That time, the weather was a bit gloomy but activating the LED Flash bought a light to bring out the scenic view around.
From the selfie camera, it has a built in Beauty Mode where you can adjust right infront of you.
Features like enhancing the eyes, cheek slimming yet softening and toning the skin.
Taken before without using Beauty Mode even literally she had put those make-ups already:
Using the “After Effect of Beauty Mode” that enhances more the face.
It has an instant make-up that retouch the look.
We have also tested the rear camera. Check this out when we had our beach escapade in Baler.
It has a vivid sharpness and lucidity even the sunrise has just beginning giving a stunning view. There are all “no filter” shots.
Food which I also taken that made a crisp output with no filter also.
The result has responsive yet stunning photos and video outputs.
One can also download applications into speeds.
The storage of 64GB ables also to save more images and videos with an expansion options like microSD or USB OTG.
My only concern was the charging behaviour. It would take 3 – 4 hours to fully get that 100% capacity.
Selfie will continue to generate a hype – anywhere, anytime and for anything. As this trend becomes worldwide, documenting ourselves would always be there.
With this in mind, Zenfone 4 Selfie is ready giving an artistic touch that would fully describe a true meaning of photographs and videos, selfie or not selfie
With the instant gratification of posting selfies with number of likes and shares in this world full of trends, one would be definitely true –
Everyone is born to stand out even one cannot blend in.
