I am really confused between Samsung Galaxy J7 & Asus Zenfone Selfie.
I have Watched lots of reviews of both phones
Samsung Galaxy J7 have Less Sensors, HD Screen instead of Full HD Screen, No Screen Protection,
Asus Zenfone Selfie Has All Required Features plus Missing all of Galaxy j7 Features,
But However All Reviews are showing that zenfone selfie camera not up to mark
Samsung galaxy j7 Camera is Better performing than Asus Zenfone Selfie, Better Screen Viewing in HD Screen because of Amoled Screen, Better Battery Backup almost 1 to 1.5 day per single full charge.
So i m really Confused Which should to buy ?
Samsung Galaxy J7 or Asus Zenfone Selfie ?
Hi Friends there is no volume key in this handset that's a big drawback.....otherwise phone is very good.
ariz, 26 Sep 2015that is the clone one... clone set will cut off ram .. ex. ram 3GB become 1.5GB...But my original Zenfone 5 (I know it is original because I have sent to Asus Service Centre before) loose 5% battery with 3G and Facebook within 5 minutes...
One week usage of Zenfone selflie:
I got this phone via flipkart and box contents were simple : handset ... usb cable (not too long) and Charger rated at 2A (dont mistake this for fast charging).
Coming to phone... I was previously a windows phone user... then had an ipod touch ... but wanted to give android a try.. i previously used Samsung galaxy core but gave up on 1gb ram mobiles which lagged like anything...this being my second android device.This is my review based on the using this phone for a week and I m not comparing it to any other mobile.
Hardware: Coming to Hardware.. this pone is similar to the new zenfone models... power button on the top..volume rocker below the camera and nothing on the left and right side of the device.Though power button can be a pain to reach for a 5.5 inch but still you have double tap to wake up and sleep ..so not much of a deal here.But volume rocker feel too bad as it creaked with noise while pressing it. This could have been better.
Software: Running android 5.0.2 (not the latest) powered by zenfone's own UI .. the software is good but loaded with too much bloat ware (most of them can be uninstalled or disabled). but on the whole it will be a good experience to use and you get themes to customize your device ,widgets to add to ur screens and many many more. But if you complain too much of bloat ware on this then you can switch over to the simple Google now launcher to get near stock android experience.
Camera : 13 Mp both front and back is a good deal for the price. The rear has laser auto focus and front has dual led flash.Outdoor pictures are good with detail and you have too much of options to choose from to get the kind of pic you want. Indoors ..where there is light there is less noise . So Choose a good indoor environment for pics. Coming to the front camera .. its is great to say.. 13mp feels like a 13mp selfie. By default u r loaded into beautification mode .. itz has a slight delay to capture but u can switch over to other modes to capture the selfies. I did not test with front flash so .. nothing much to comment on it..but 5.5 inch can squeeze many people into the selfie zone.Laser auto focus on the rear camera also helps in quick focus.
Battery : 3000mAh removable battery ... itz Removable!!! is good but not great. It gave me 4 to 4.2 hrs of screen on time (wifi used.. an hour of gaming.. web browsing for 40 mins and video for an hour). Standby time is also good ... but it will get you through a day for low to moderate usage but heavy use will need you charging twice a day. The charger gave me mixed review .. one time it charged within one and half hr but another time it took 3 hrs to charge.. so i dont understand the concept here ( i dint have low voltage or fluctuations in my home). But for this price i wouldnt complain on the battery life i got.
Performance : This is where asus shows it class. Loaded 10-11 apps at a time and faced no lag. Gaming was good but the phone gets warm (not so hot) near both front and back cameras while playing moderate to heavy games. Call Quality was very good (using Vodafone network) and 3G reception was great even in my home where signal is not that good. Ram .. yes here everyone said only 1.3 gb they got... even i got the same.. killing apps made me get a max of 1.6gb.. but zenfone UI and google need 1gb for the background apps.. killing them wont help as they will load again . Cache takes upto 300mb but u can reduce it by manually killing unwanted apps which are not running.Output from Headphone jack is also very good. But use a good earphone for music and videos. And loudspeaker output is descent but not too loud. But this wont make it bad to miss calls or texts.
Device Updates : Once i set up my phone I was immediately directed to an update of 300 mb which told improved camera performance and some more features. But I updated it after two days as mixed reviews came on it. That did make things worse. First Clock disappeared from home screen. Next launching camera (both front and back) ..with 5 mins of use..the camera got warm (not hot). Hope this is a bug that ASUS fixes soon. No updates on whether this device will get Android M but lets hope for the best.
Guys this is my view on this device with one week of usage .. Hope this helps for people who are planning to buy it.
