This machine has only $150. The 5 megapixel selfie camera has a flash, and the livestream, which costs just $150, sure to attract a lot of who like selfie. There will be people available to buy additional machines to livestream for good. But is it really worth it? I have a little evaluation of this camera for the user to consider carefully!
About livestream allows for beauty and customization with Asus’ exclusive BeautyLive app. In short, if there is a need for regular livestream for the main purpose of “show” your face, this is a reasonable choice. In the case, you do not have such livestream needs that mainly play on the life or the daily activities, do not need too concerned about this feature of Zenfone Live.
Talking about the camera before, Asus did not race parameters but stopped at 5 MP. This is a common parameter in the price segment from $150 downward, very rare to have 1-2 machines with 8MP or 13MP resolution. More importantly, the 5-megapixel camera has a pixel size of 1.4 μm, suggesting that Asus is also interested in increasing pixel size instead of just resolution.
In addition, this camera is equipped with a flash in front to support the self in the dark better. This is one of the rare phones in this segment that the front camera is equipped with flash. However, the flash is mild, light and does not cause dazzling so its light is not really enough. In dark conditions, but want to see the face, you can only bring the phone close!
Another big plus point that you love about selfie especially the ladies like on this machine, is the beautification feature. This feature not only allows you to customize many things from skin, face, eyes, smooth … but also allows customization with 10 different levels, ie you will have up to 200,000 options.
And of course, many will be easy to customize for each person to look best when selfie. However, the ability to make big eyes look good, separate with the eyes are not raised absolutely high, max only 5, otherwise look like aliens.
I have tried taking many selfie photos with Zenfone Live in many cases and different customizations. First, shoot with normal auto mode, do not turn beauty. I personally think that this is the most beautiful and most satisfied. Because it is not processed much, it retains more detail and true detail, while lower resolution also reduces some of the defects in the skin.
In the case of beauty enough (level 3), the skin is “smooth” and the white brighter. In short, there are more virtual than real people, but still bring a sense of authenticity to the viewer, still retain the details as hair not so bad.
In the case of the highest level of beauty, the hair or the scene is retained, only the skin is too dense and the eyes are mesmerized. (So I warned you whatever you want to increase also ok, but the eye is max only 5)
To sum it up, the biggest plus of Zenfone Live is that it recognizes the skin very well, experiencing the level of beauty, the hair is almost unchanged, only the skin is treated.
However, it is a pity that the algorithms for processing the skin of it is not good so in all 3 cases, when the back light, the photo is red. The situation when shooting video is similar, but because the video instead of photos and customize the beauty is not as much as shooting (especially without the “frog” eye) so feel more real. And just like when shooting, I still like the most when not turned on beauty. But overall, just like the livestream, filming beauty videos will be a big attraction for ladies. Morning wake up, do not need to make up, just shoot the video and upload.
In addition, Asus also equip Zenfone Live HDR Pro features. However, this feature is worth only when shooting low light, but in the case of back light or dark, always forget. Because the HDR of the server is mainly push and increase the shadow (dark area). In case of lack of brightness, the picture is also pushed to the whole, leading to some fire.
But the case is dark and backward, the image is not pushed to focus on increasing the contrast and “black still black”. This is probably what Asus need to fix on their next selfie products if they continue to bring this HDR Pro feature.
There are two things to keep in mind: the lag of this camera is a bit too much when you turn on the beauty (raise your hand up and down the entire time the hand is still on the frame) and sometimes the meter goes “very wrong” You have to turn around to find a good corner, otherwise there will be only one black screen, whether it is light or not.
In summary, the overall view, compared to the price of $150 genuine and 5MP specifications published, the camera selfie still pretty well in the price range and suitable for those who want to appear shimmering even when shooting Turns and livestream. In general there is no flaw in any case. Vice versa, for those who want to have selfie image but not much shimmering or even do not care about selfie is of course “auto pass”.
