The Zenfone 3 laser comes with large 5.5 inch display and has Full HD (1920*1080) resolution, it offers 401 PPI. The display is IPS LCD and gets corning gorilla glass protection. The Asus Zenfone 3 laser also offers decent outdoor legibility with high brightness display panel (500 nits).
There is also blue light filter to protect eyes while reading text on Zenfone 3 laser.
The highlight feature for the smartphone is it’s fast 13 Mega Pixel rear camera which comes with Electronic Image Stabilization, and f/2.0 aperture lens. Asus says it is an excellent device for photography enthusiasts and will find the camera to be very responsive. Asus claims it can focus in just 0.03 seconds and can take great images without blur and with excellent colors and dynamic range.
The rear camera comes with Dual tone LED flash and also has a laser Auto focus. There is a 8 Mega pixel front camera to click selfies and for video calls.
There is a rectangular fingerprint scanner below the rear camera for fast unlocking of the device.
The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz and comes with Adreno 505 GPU. Processor is not the best in class as it scores just 42,450 on the Antutu benchmark and is seen on budget smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime. Asus could have used something better like the Snapdragon 625 /650.
Notably, there is 4 GB Ram to ensure the smartphone works smoothly and make up a bit for the processing power. Zenfone 3 laser runs on the latest Android Marshmallow OS 6.0 along with the Zen UI.
Sound quality is enhanced by a 5 magnet speaker along with Asus proprietary Sonic master technology, something similar to Dolby Atmos to improve the sound spectrum for the device.
The Asus Zenfone 3 laser is powered by a 3000 mAH battery which can easily work all day with moderate usage. There is 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 128 GB using a micro-sd card.
The Dual Sim smartphone comes with 4G LTE as well as VOLTE support. It can work with 4G network of JIO, Airtel , Idea, Vodafone and other Indian telecom operators.
The smartphone looks sleek and measures just 7.9 mm in thickness.
Overall the Zenfone 3 laser looks like a good offering with premium design but at the same time processor could have been better to justify the high price tag.
