The phone sports a 24 MP selfie shooter which offers standard front photography. As for recording, you can shoot 1080p videos. You could wish more on a phone with its budget but the phone is more about its under the hood performance than its camera efficiency.

Coming to videography from the back cameras, you are in for the best joy. With this phone, you can record 8K videos with crystal clear detail. The gyro-EIS technology will maintain a constant background so you will have less worry with stability.

An Uninspiring Battery

The battery section of this phone is a bit underwhelming. At this budget, Asus has packed a less-inspiring Li-Po 4,000mAh battery. We can’t believe this phone would comfortably oversee a day for you. But Asus compliments it with a highly efficient 65W fast charger for relief.
