Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom (ZE553KL) Clear Case worth Php 699
Asus ZenEar earphones worth Php 699
Asus Limited Edition Tripod worth Php 799

As I've shared previously, for me, the most special feature of the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom is its Dual 12 MegaPixel Camera module at the back, which gives it 2.3 times optical zoom capability.

The two shooters have varying focal lengths. The main one 25mm focal length, f/1.7 aperture, and 4-axis optical image stabilization. On the other hand, the secondary optic has a wider and longer 59mm focal length and f/2.8 aperture.

Combined, these two lenses let the user to zoom in into subjects without losing clarity and - hence - allows for better framing and angles.

Asus is also particularly proud about the design and build of this model. Crafted from anodized aluminum, the sleek unibody shell gently curves down the sides and edges -- making the device a joy to hold.

Here's another incredible feature of this model: It has a notably big battery with a whopping 5,000 mAh capacity! This large pack gives the ZenFone 3 Zoom extended uptime, which in turn, gives the user peace of mind in knowing that the cameraphone will not run out of juice in the middle of the day, after just a few camera shots.

Don't you think it's amazing that despite having a 5,000 mAh battery pack, the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom measures only 7.99 at its thickest point? Believe it!

I think Asus was able to make this possible by making the battery pack wider instead of thicker.

Alright! That's it for now! Stay tuned for more TechPinas posts and features about this top-notch and feature-packed cameraphone from Asus.
