ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser ZE601KL vs iPhone 6+

It’s been a week since this baby came into my life!

So on the ZE601KL I’ve been able to watch (in super HD) backdated episodes of Modern Family, Baby Daddy and online videos from CouchTuner, while my Mom borrows this for her K-Dramas. The full-HD 6-inch screen makes the watching experience second to none.

Why’s it that audio sounds so amazing on the ZE601KL? Im convinced that this can be attributed to the dual-driver audio chamber that has a five-magnet construction and metal voice coil to deliver powerful sounds and volume. According to official specs, the sound pressure level testing of ZE601KL is up to 97.4 dB. So even those barely audible videos that I can’t watch on my iPhone 6+ could be heard clearly on the ZE601KL.

Which brings me to….

THE Showdown:
iPhone 6 Plus
Versus ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser HD

If you had to pick a better model, which would it be?

Since I’m still tinkering with my ZE601KL, here’s my 2cents on a few key features:

The ZE601KL is also value-for-money, retailing at SGD330+ (or SGD379 according to some friends who were looking for it at Sim Lim) in Singapore, bringing it close to half of what consumers pay for a typical iPhone 6+ with a mobile plan. ZE601KL serves the basic cellphone function, and on top of that affords you a mega HD video experience, and a wider screen than most phones out there.

In all fairness, I don’t love Apple any less – I’m heavily reliant on iCloud and I sync all my files to my Mac. Size-wise, iPhone 6+ is also slimmer and lighter. If guys already find the iPhone 6+ series hard to fit into their tight hipster jeans, then the ZE601KL isn’t gonna be easier to squeeze itself in.

Tada, iPhone 6 Plus being slimmer of the 2, has a better chance of not creating a huge bulge in our pants. Also for girls with slim purses and tiny bags, you might take this tiny difference into consideration. ZE601KL has this rounded hump on its back for better grip. Both phones though have this impeccably smooth flawless shell – oh wait what am I saying? All new phones do.

At the end of the day, Apple phones facilitate a suite of Mac products. If you’re OCD about syncing all your files, and making sure you get access to your calendar, news, contacts, emails, tweetfeeds, Facebook feeds and system preferences on all 30 mobile devices, then Apple it is. Otherwise, why not take a chance on ZE601KL?

Out of all the current phones out there, ZE601KL definitely has an edge in terms of providing an enhanced video-watching experience with its 6-inch screen size and great speaker quality!

Here’s more fooling around with the ZE601KL, this time showing some of its camera functions and even more of its super HD screen:
