Let’s take a look at the display first. This time around, ASUS has opted for a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display on the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. Coupled with the superbly power efficient chipset, its battery life is quite challenging to drain off – which leads me to the most important point of this segment.
Coupling AMOLED with this power efficient chipset, the “always on” feature can actually be used without worrying it will drain the battery dry.
ASUS is smart enough to include something called “always on display”. We’ve seen this on Nokia Lumia smartphones in the past few years where it displays some information on your phone’s screen when it’s asleep. This can only be done reasonably effectively with the help of AMOLED screens. There are a few different built-in “watch faces” which you can select too. It doesn’t that much flexibility, but they’re definitely there for you to pick and choose.
With that said, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro does have a setting to control the screen color mode. By default, it’s on “Super Color” mode – which really does make all the colors vividly pop out. ASUS did include a blue light filter option within the screen color mode menu too. Too bad that ASUS didn’t implement a scheduled blue light filter mode so that it’s automated.
I don’t really mind that the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is using a 1080p display, actually. In a way, I think it’s more sensible as it can retain an overall low power consumption. Also, there isn’t much of a perceivable difference between 1080p and 4K on a 5.5-inch screen.
