We've conducted a detailed review of the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG

Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG's size

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG is 2.8 inches (71.5 mm) wide, 5.7 inches (143.7 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10.5 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG, it weighs about 140 oz (140 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG's screen

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has a run-of-the-mill processing power of 1.2GHz×4(Quad core), so while you'll be able to play 2D games with ease, it's a little lacking for 3D games. Outside of games, the phone runs most things quite smoothly, but certain apps can cause a bit of slowdown.

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG's storage capacity

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG

The main camera of the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG's battery capacity is 2040 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG

The Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
