Last Sunday, I was invited by our friends at ASUS Philippines to join the Zenvolution, which put simply, is their way of introducing their latest products to their consumers. Having been immersed in their new offerings that day, I figured there’s an ASUS ZenFone 3 for every type of traveler.
THE ALL-AROUND WANDERER: ZENFONE 3
With its three key attributes—agility, beauty, and clarity—the ZenFone 3 is perfect for wanderers who want a smartphone that goes best for their journeys, a smartphone that can do all. Inspired by nature, it’s beautifully designed with precision-sculpted glass on both sides, a concentric-circle pattern, and spun-cut etchings. Its 5.2” or 5.5” display comes with 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution to show every detail and intense 600nits brightness for easy viewing under even the brightest light conditions. Lastly, it’s fast and powerful with its 64-bit, 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB memory, and desktop-grade Adreno 506 graphics performance.

THE LUXURY TRAVELER: ZENFONE 3 DELUXE
Flying business or first, staying at the finest hotels, savoring Michelin-star meals, and partying at the most exclusive venues—doing all these needs a smartphone that’s premium in terms of style and performance. For discerning luxury travelers, there’s the sleek and chic ZenFone 3 Deluxe, which in itself is a work of art with its excellent craftsmanship. It’s equipped with an entirely invisible antenna packed in its sexy all-metal unibody.

THE PHOTOGRAPHER: ZENFONE 3 LASER
It goes without saying that a photographer needs an excellent camera, even when it’s in his or her phone.

Its has a 13MP sensor, large f/2.0 aperture lens, electronic image stabilization (EIS) for blur-free video, automatic color correction sensor for true-color photography, and most of all, laser auto-focus for any distance and lighting instant clarity in just 0.03 seconds.

THE TECHY NOMAD: ZENFONE 3 ULTRA
With its 6.8” FHD IPS display that effectively makes it a cross between a smartphone and a tablet, the ZenFone 3 Ultra is best for the techy nomads who wouldn’t just settle for any phone for their journeys. This particular model packs a punch in terms of multimedia capabilities: its screen is equipped with ASUS Tru2Life+ technology, meaning it has a dedicated display processor like those found in the latest 4K UHD TVs; its SonicMaster 3.0 audio technology means more volume, more quality, and more effects; and its PixelMaster 3.0 technology packs a 23MP camera, 92MP Super Resolution technology, a large f/2.0-aperture lens, subject-tracking TriTech auto-focus for any distance and lighting clarity, optical and electronic image stabilization for blur-free shots and video, and color correction sensor for true color photography.
