When my old phone got busted in the middle of work early last year, that was the day when Mr. A suggested that we both get new phones. His phone that time was still working perfectly fine but hey, I guess it was his perfect excuse to get a new one. So why not. Lol! I agreed because well of course, I needed a new phone to function. Fast forward to a few hours later in Gaisano Mall of Davao, we found ourselves buying the latest (at the time) Asus Zenfone 3 Selfie - one for me and one for Mr. A. (yes, he got a selfie too. Well originally he wanted the Asus Zenfone 3 Max but I wanted the selfie more. Wife wins. Yeay!)

Our Asus Zenfone 3 Selfie Phones. #RelationshipGoals - Taken using Asus Zenfone 3 Max

That selfie is my first ever Asus phone. I have to say that I am really impressed with its performance and the quality of the selfies I take. To be honest, this was the only phone that helped me achieve better selfies. The other phones that I used to own took really crappy, pixelated ones and it wasn't just right for me. But the Asus Zenfone 3 Selfie phone hit all the right buttons in my selfie game.

Fast forward to today. I am honestly already happy with my Asus Zenfone 3 Selfie - this is even my go-to phone to take photos when I do my makeup reviews. The photos of me wearing the makeup that I review were actually taken using my Zenfone 3 Selfie. The quality it gives out is quite impressive and the colors of the products, like the lipsticks and the eye shadows, stand out. But thanks to an event by Asus that we attended one fine August Saturday, looks like yours truly wants a slight upgrade.

(Yes, Ahjusshi Gong Yoo is the newest Asus Ambassador)


Just look at the front camera of Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie. Retailing for only Php 13,995, the newest Zenfone Selfie boasts of having a 20 megapixel front camera (the Asus Zenfone 3 Selfie phone that I got only has 13 megapixels for its front camera), an F2.0 aperture, Softlight LED Flash and the exclusive ASUS SelfieMaster technology for smart beautification in selfies, videos and livestreams. Its second selfie camera (yes it has two selfie cameras) boasts of 8 megapixels, 120 degree wide-angle camera with 200% wider view for more friends and scenery in the frame.

The Zenfone 4 Selfie is indeed my first choice for an upgrade. But lo and behold its other sibling - the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. Retailing for only Php 18,995, the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro's front camera carries a 24 megapixel *DuoPixel camera technology using the Sony Flagship IMX362, with a F1.8 aperture and twice the light sensitivity for low light photos. Aside from these, the front camera also offers a 4K UHD Selfie Video, has a softlight LED Flash and an exclusive ASUS SelfieMaster technology for smart beautification in selfies, videos and even livestreams (which is also the same with the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie). The second selfie camera boasts of 5 megapixels, 120 degree wide-angle camera and 200% wider view to accommodate more friends and scenery in the frame.

Me checking out the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. Work it, girl!

Comparing both phones and also checking out the selfie quality during the event, I have to say that I am leaning towards getting the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro. Although the Zenfone 4 Selfie phone is already great ( I mean come on, 20 megapixels for the front cam?) but for me as an aspiring beauty blogger who loves to posts selfies with makeup on to blog about, then my best bet is definitely on the PRO. Oh and aside from photos, I have also started beauty vlogging and between the two, the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is the better option thanks to the 4K UHD (3840 by 2160) selfie video of the main selfie camera.

I tried both phones and I just love how it hides my face's imperfections. I'm not saying that I want to fool people to think I have flawless skin but this is about confidence. And my photos from the phones really brought out my beautiful side. It made me look fresh in the middle of the afternoon.  Hey we all need a little extra help with the beauty department from time to time. And who would have thought that there's a phone that can actually do that. If my Zenfone 3 Selfie makes me pretty after every shot, how much more would the Zenfone 4 Selfie and the Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro? Ugh, beauty queen? Move over Pia W. Ha ha ha just kidding babes! 

For those who are aspiring beauty bloggers and vloggers like myself, or those who want to step up their selfie games, then both the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie and Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro are the phones for you. You just have to choose which one suits your needs and budget. One should really take time to look at the specifications because aside from the budget, that should also be the deciding factor. But take it from me, both phones are absolutely great which I'm sure, all women would love!
