ASUS VivoBook S14/S15

Performance

I think the most exciting part about the ZenFone Selfie is definitely this section – it’s sporting a Snapdragon 615, and that’s a pro to Qualcomm supporters for its architecture. Let’s not forget that Android devices were first created and powered by Qualcomm chips, with Mediatek and Intel coming in much later in the game.

On Epic Citadel, the Selfie managed to score an impressive 30FPS on a Snapdragon 615 chipset with highest settings at 1080p resolution! Not too shabby!!

Using Qualcomm’s very own Vellamo benchmarker however showed that the Selfie is generally slower than the LG Nexus 5 – though it does seem so by pure horsepower. In terms of numbers, it doesn’t lead anywhere.

Why? It’s because the ASUS ZenFone Selfie is actually very smooth sailing, and I dare to say that the Selfie performs actually much better than many other phones out there, as compared to the specs of the OnePlus One and its similar rivals – including the Honor 6 Plus which we took a spin a while back.

Are the optimizations done on the ZenUI magical enough to have a device sporting a Snapdragon 615 performing like a champ? Somehow in this case, yes. ZenUI did improve a lot since its debut running Lollipop on the original ZenFone 2.

Magically though, the phone doesn’t feel hot at all, although on CPU-Z, it’s about 60ºC. Don’t know how ASUS did it, but I’m glad they did.

    • Hey Samuel, the phone can be sent to any of the authorized ASUS service centers and your problem will be handled by ASUS themselves.
      If I’m not mistaken, they check the warranty validity through your serial number.
