The recently culminated ZenFestival was such a real blast. We were able to check out several Asus smartphones, three of which definitely caught our attention: the ZenFone Selfie, ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone 2 Deluxe.
These cheap yet reasonably specced smartphones (and mobile devices) from up-and-coming Chinese companies just keep showing up. If you want a 1080p screen resolution, Snapdragon 615 processor and 2GB of RAM, the Smartisan U1 budget handset has them for around Php6,550 only.

The company did got pretty excited about their 360 innovation that they have already released five devices under that category in just the first half of the year.
Before the month ends, Asus Philippines plans to showcase and launch several of its mobile devices at the ZenFestival event in Makati. The Asus ZenFone Selfie is expected to appear and demonstrate its unique selfie experience.
