I do not know if it is me or smartphone manufacturers are really upping their game, because I have come across a score of beautiful phones recently. And we at Techpoint would not hesitate to bring them straight to you as they drop.
Today, we are unboxing the Asus Zenfone Selfie ZD155KL and the device is a really beauty to behold, I cannot wait to tear at the packaging. But first let’s see what is packed under the pretty facade.

What’s in the box?
Sliding out the fancy outer casing showed the phone resting easy in it’s cradle.
Opening the box proper, it contained the device itself, USB cable, a charger head with a spare, earpiece with extra earbuds to fix on them. And the manual actually spoke English this time.
The power button is at the top and also doubles as the wake screen button. And the earphone jack is off to the left hand corner.
Then there is the charging port underneath with the mouth piece off the right side of the port.
Behind the phone is a 13MP camera and flash, to the side are the unusual volume buttons sticking out
Then in the front is the 13MP selfie camera with a flash like floodlights, the kingpin masterpiece.
The Asus ZenFone Selfie spots one of the sleekest designs I have set my eyes on for a while now. It combines a flawless shell-like design with lightweight beauty. The user interface is relatable and easy to use for the non-tech heads. And it’s camera is jaw dropping, I am still exploring it’s full functionalities, keep fingers crossed for the review in a few days, I cannot wait myself.
