For the review part 1: ZenFone 2 Laser 5.5 S Unboxing And First Impressions - A Major Upgrade?
|The screen in action|
This edition of the Laser is still using the same 5.5 inch HD IPS OGS panel. Last year, we said that the screen of the ZenFone 2 Laser is one of the best you'll get under 10K, but times have changed and technology evolved which makes HD screen not that great in today's world.
Then in the screen settings, there's a bluelight filter that and color customization that you can play around to fit your eyes the best.
|Long battery life achieved!|
One of the main reasons why you should consider this phone is its battery life. Donning that 3,000 mAh of battery capacity only, I didn't expect this to be this good. It was able to score 10 hours and 6 minutes via PC Mark battery test with Max brightness and volume on.
On real life usage, I only charge the phone once a day as a daily driver. That's says a lot as I'm always on social media, loves taking photos and do different kinds of task using my phone most of the time.
The 5.5 S delivered one of the longest battery life for that kind of setup and specs.
|The camera with laser AF at the back|
In terms of technical capabilities and details, nothing much changed in the camera department of this handset. It's still loaded with a good type of 13 MP Toshiba lens with f/2.0 aperture w/ laser AF and 5 MP wide angle selfie camera.
It's still a more than capable camera phone for something this affordable.

What's the effect of that? It's smoother in terms of performance. There are less hiccups and crashes from our experience. The camera doesn't lag anymore too as well compared with the older Laser. It was also gotten better in gaming as it can load even some heavy games with ease.
This phone doesn't heat up that much too compared with other Snapdragon 615 handsets.
