Having recently acquired the ZE601KL, alongside a much-raved about Netflix account, the elders in my family have been hooked to TV and movies in bed. I’m sure the Singapore government would approve of Netflix’s long-run benefits which may incidentally include (i) general population growth and; (ii) the expansion of home delivery portals like FoodPanda and Deliveroo. If this were the 90s, I would have acquired a baby sister or brother.
Netflix works perfectly on the Android ZE601KL. Oh I I thank thee, Netflix in HD, and the ZE601KL, for several sleepless nights in a row. Not to mention a few mini-squabbles over who gets possession of the device for bed-time screening! In the day, my mom sometimes has the ZE601KL in her purse as she’s big on streaming on the go. So I figured the phone belongs to her now!
And sometimes my dad steals some sneaky time with the device for his personal viewing…
Look at how endearing he looks in this candid.
Ooh lala what did he find?
He must have been streaming one of his late-night comedies. Saturday Night Live or something.
Deer caught in the headlights Dad! Here comes Mummy.
Close to 70, and still such a cutie. Yes friends, meet my dad.
I guess the main draw of this mobile streaming device is its super HD 6-inch screen, and dual speakers which amplifies the sound (both volume and quality), so viewers can get an enhanced video-viewing experience from the comfort of…anywhere you desire, really! In your bed, on the couch, stuck on an MRT train, or while avoiding the eyes of the barista eyeing your already empty drinking glass, the ZE601KL takes your mind on a trip with its mobile HD experience.
I guess that’s why even the parents get hooked.
Anyway you might already notice the Chinese New Year decorations up in my humble abode. Yes! CNY is just round the corner, and this may be a good gift for those looking to spend some angpow money for their loved ones. Or on yourself if you’re looking for a value-for-money smartphone this festive season.
ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE601KL retails for SGD330+.

P.S. In a perfect world, Netflix would grant Singaporeans access to all available shows. There are however a few comedies restricted by regional distribution rights, and to my dismay the list includes The Office and Modern Family. This does not make me happy. No indeed.
But I’m still thankful “Netflix and Chill” has arrived in Singapore.
