5 Reasons Why I Recommend the ASUS ZENFONE 2 LASER for Moms #seewhatotherscantsee

As a working mom, I use my phone for pretty much everything – manage my schedule and to do list, search online, watch videos, take photos of my beautiful daughter, update my social media accounts, view and respond to emails and pay bills.  I use it as a calculator, map, dictionary and it even helps me get a taxi or private car when needed. 

I am an iPhone and Samsung user and I have never tried using an ASUS before.  So I was very excited when I learned that I will be given an opportunity to try the new ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser.  I have been using it for a month now I am thrilled to share with you my review.  Hey, this is nothing technical okay.  My opinion about the features of the phone is based on my personal experience and preferences.

Here are 5 reasons why, in my opinion, moms will love the new Asus Zenfone 2 Laser:


The Asus Zenfone is thin and light.  It has an ergonomic arc design to comfortably fit your palm for ultimate comfort without sacrificing style.  The curved back with a metallic finish minimizes the risk of dropping it accidentally.  Isn’t this feature important to us, moms?! For the past month that I have been using it, I never had that “muntik-na” experience that makes your heart stop for a few seconds while you frantically do everything possible to catch your phone.

I also love the rear key, which is a part of the ergonomic design.  It is conveniently placed where your index finger is positioned when holding the phone.  The rear key not only adjusts the volume but can also be used for other functions like taking a selfie. 


The features of the screen are equally impressive as its ergonomic design.  The screen uses the ASUS Tru Vivid Technology that minimizes reflectiveness and maximizes clarity, brightness and touch responsiveness.  It also has an anti-fingerprint layer on the cover class that allows you to enjoy sliding and swiping without leaving any fingerprints.

It also has a record-breaking touch response time of just 60 milliseconds, which is the reason why I love playing with Cooking Dash using the Zenfone 2 Laser.  Aside from the wide screen (screen-to-body ratio is 72%), it provides no lag feeling when I click or drag the screen.   Moreover, the screen is able to distinguish difference in pattern between water drops/grease and your finger.  Hence the screen is still responsive and woks normally when the screen is a bit wet – which happens a lot during the rainy season or when you are cooking while referring to a recipe in You Tube.

My two favorite features of the screen are the ASUS Splendid and Corning Gorilla Glass 4.  The ASUS Splendid lets me tailor the ZenFone’s display.  I can adjust the color temperature, hue and saturation manually or I can just choose a preset selection – warm color temperature, cold color temperature, blue light filer or vivid.  Believe me, this feature is extremely useful for people with migraine like me.  The Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the other hand, provides protection against accidental damages.

I cannot remember the last time I used a camera to take a photo.  I conveniently use my mobile phone camera to take photos of my family so these features are important to me.   The Zenfone 2 Laser is the first phone in its price range to have a 8-megapixel back camera guided with a laser auto-focus.  The laser auto-focus accelerates close-up photography and works well in low-light environments.  I love taking candid photos of Julia at night while she's sleeping using my other phone.  The outcome frustrates me because it is usually too dark or if I use a flash, it loses the "night" effect.  Or maybe I just don't know how to take nice photos using the night mode.  So you can imagine how "trigger-happy" I was when trying the auto-focus feature of the Zenfone just because it allows me to take better photos on low light mode without too much effort!  The Zenfone also has a dual-LED real tone flash and a 5-megapixel front camera for better selfies. 

The ASUS Photo Collage and Photo Effects and ASUS MiniMovie are perfect for moms like me who love to take family photos and share it online.  The ASUS Photo Collage provides high quality collage templates including magazine page, postcard, poster, album, CD Cover and a lot more.  The ASUS MiniMovie, on the other hand, can turn memories into a movie.  Moms can quickly and easily put together photos and make it into a short video, complete with titles and beautiful background music!


I love the ZenMotion feature – this feature lets you wake up the Zenfone 2 Laser with touch Gestures to go directly to the app that you want to use.  There are several default swipe gestures to quick launch different apps:  C to launch camera, W to launch browser, O to launch Calendar, e to launch email, Z to launch ASUS Booster and V to launch Dialer.

So cool, right?


Last but definitely not the least is the Kids Mode feature. We allow Julia to use our phone to play the games we downloaded for her.  Often times, I feel uncomfortable lending her my phone because she might accidentally click or delete something on my phone.  I was quite excited to set up the Kids Mode in my Asus Zenfone 2 Laser.  It allows me to easily manage applications for Julia – apps that she is allowed to use, control how much time she spends on the electronic device (she is allotted 1 hour of gadget time), block notifications, block all or designative calls, and set a passcode for answering calls.

The ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser is Cruisin' Mommyhood-approved!  I love how it focuses on comfort, practical features and providing extraordinary user experience without sacrificing style and of course, price.
