This just-released smartphone innovation from ASUS packs in even more heavyweight features, making it the perfect successor to last year’s best-selling ZenFone 5
he search for that elusive perfect mobile phone can be a long and challenging one, as every smartphone user would know. But if ASUS’ globally leading brand value and countless international and local awards this year alone is any indication of its prowess in product innovation, then one need not look far to finally find the smartphone attuned to his multi-hyphenated lifestyle.
As one of its latest mobile unit offerings, ASUS successfully introduced the ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 (ZE500KL), a smartphone that perfectly embodies the brand’s commitment to put extra premium on both user experience and innovation – what with its several unparalleled key features – while widely considering its value for money (SRP: PHP 7,295.00).
This year’s best value smartphone from ASUS
Undeniably, ASUS’ most notable mobile unit innovation during 2014 was the best-selling ZenFone 5 – a marvelous smartphone that stood out due to its then unmatched performance. But being the global powerhouse company that it is known to continuously push the envelope of product solutions, ASUS then soon after picked up from the success of the ZenFone 5, raising the bar this year even further by upgrading these features and just recently introducing the even more remarkable ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 – now significantly equipped with features that one has never quite experienced in a smartphone before.
Blazingly Fast Auto-Focus with Focus Speed of Up to 0.03 Seconds
ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0’s rear camera has laser autofocus technology for the fastest possible clarity. Its infrared laser measures distances at lightning speed – and that means near-instant focus as fast as only 0.03 seconds. Compared with traditional contrast focus, ZenFone 2 Laser is easily in the lead by up to 2X faster speed, wherein the infrared laser gets the most accurate distance of the object and the lens simply accelerates itself to the precise position for the imaging.
Ultimate screen protection — Corning Gorilla Glass 4
The ZenFone 2 Laser‘s display comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection against accidental damages. This also makes ZenFone 2 Laser the only smartphone with the best screen protection at this price range.
The Gorilla Glass 4 is much stronger than its third generation of Gorilla Glass 3 in many perspectives: its display offers twice (2X) the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, a 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use — making it safer and stronger than ever before.
8MP PixelMaster Camera with f/2.0 Aperture
The ZenFone 2 Laser is the first phone in the price range to have an 8-megapixel camera on the back, guided with a laser auto-focus. It also has a dual-LED real tone flash and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The f/2.0-aperture Toshiba lens manages to focus the subject in a snap and delivers shots with excellent detail, saturation and contrast levels in day-light conditions. The combination of the excellent hardware and software truly delivers the best in class camera solutions.
5 Magnetic Speakers for 41% Louder and Less Distorted Sound
To provide better sound output, the speakers of ZenFone 2 Laser are constructed with five layers of magnets in a large chamber so the bass sound is much better than the traditional 1 or 3 magnet speaker. In general, the sound is crystal clear with 41% increase in louder volume, lower frequency extended by 14% and distortion frequency improved by 12%.
“While just being one of the newest offerings in our continuously growing smartphone product line, the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 has already widely earned the public’s attention due to its unprecedented performance and functions. Among which, users have raved about its extraordinary photography features and audio capabilities, its impressive battery life (up to 13 hours), and its top-of-the-line cover glass protection. With these many innovations in place, it is undeniable that the ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 has greatly advanced the smartphone user experience function.” shares ASUS Philippines Marketing Manager Jamie Zaldivar.

8 Reasons Why Choose the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED as your Next Laptop
Getting a new laptop nowadays is already a challenge since many brands have similar specs and functions. So the main question is, what do you plan on using the laptop for? Different laptops are better suited to various tasks. For example, suppose you plan on using the laptop for gaming. In that case, you’ll want to look for a model with a high-performance processor and a dedicated graphics card. If you need a laptop for work, you’ll want to look for one with a fast processor and a good keyboard, like the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED.
These are the factors to consider why you should choose the Vivobook S 14 OLED.
1. Processor: The processor is the brain of the laptop, and a more powerful processor will allow the laptop to handle demanding tasks more efficiently. The Vivobook S 14 OLED has a high-performance processor powered by 12th Generation Intel Core H-series Processors, which offers a unique combination of Performance and Efficient cores (P-core and E-core). This translates to real-world performance, intuitively scaled to match whatever you’re doing. The Performance cores are designed to maximize single-thread performance and responsiveness for compute-intensive workloads like gaming and 3D design.
2. Memory: Also known as RAM, memory determines how quickly the laptop can access and use data. A laptop with more memory will be able to multitask more efficiently and run more demanding programs.
The Vivobook S 14 OLED supports up to 16 GB 3200 MHz DDR4, which is ideal for heavy multitasking. This is essential if you are into heavy browsing, like opening multiple tabs on Chrome and Firefox while creating content using Photoshop or Canva. You need a reliable device that can perform all of these, like the Vivobook S 14 OLED
3. Storage: Laptops come with either a hard drive or a solid-state drive (SSD) for storage. An SSD is faster and more reliable but tends to be more expensive. A laptop with at least 256GB of storage should be sufficient for most users. If you have a lot of files or plan on installing many programs, you may want to look for a laptop with a larger storage capacity.
The ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED features an M.2 slot with a 512GB PCIe4.0 NVMe SSD with a copper heatsink for stabler data transfer. It helps boot the Windows 11 Operating System faster at startup without problems.
4. Display: The quality of the display is important for both work and entertainment. Look for a laptop with a high-resolution display and good color accuracy. A touchscreen can also be useful for some tasks.
ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED laptops feature a 16:10 14-inch OLED HDR panel and support up to 2880 x 1800 resolution but also can reach to 90 Hz refresh rate and are able to show great detail at lower brightness settings. This means you can see the content more clearly without turning up the brightness; therefore, your eyes are exposed to less blue light.
It also has an ultrafast 0.2 ms response time ― 50x faster than average laptop LCD displays. This ensures smoother fast-paced action scenes, low-latency gameplay, and subtle details like blur-free text scrolling.
Besides an ultrawide color gamut of 100% DCI-P3 and HDR content support, the display is certified VESA DisplayHDR™ 600 True Black. It is PANTONE® Validated, assuring accurate color and high dynamic contrast reproduction. In addition, the OLED panel emits 70% less harmful blue light than LCD panels. It is certified by TÜV Rheinland to ensure that the device adheres to high safety and quality standards.
5: Portability: If you need a laptop you can take on the go, consider its weight and size. Laptops with smaller screens and lighter weight will be more portable but may have less powerful hardware.
The Vivobook S 14 is easy to carry around. It can be used in various settings, whether at home, in the office, or on the go. It includes a slim profile, lightweight construction, and a durable design that can withstand the wear and tear of frequent travel.
The new ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED weighs only 1.5 kg. Along with a thin and lightweight design, each features a side profile of less than 19 mm, which results in a sleek form factor that’s easy to carry.
6. Battery life: A laptop with a good battery life will allow you to use it for extended periods of time without needing to be plugged in. Consider how you will use the laptop and whether long battery life is essential to you.
The Vivobook S 14 OLED has a 70Wh lithium-polymer battery and a Battery Health Charging feature that offers three modes: Full Capacity, Balanced, and Maximum Lifespan. Full Capacity mode allows the battery to charge 100%, providing a full charge for extended on-the-go performance. Balance mode allows the battery to charge to 80%, providing a balance of power while helping to preserve battery quality. Maximum Lifespan mode allows the battery to charge to only 60%, helping to maximize the life of the battery.
7. Warranty and support: Consider the warranty and support options offered by the manufacturer. A longer warranty can provide peace of mind, and good support can make it easier to get help if you have any issues with your laptop.
ASUS has a service agent available anytime, anywhere through MyASUS: One-Stop Portal for ASUS Software. It comes with any ASUS laptop you purchase. Using this feature, you can contact ASUS customer support via phone, email, or online chat. Customers can also track the repair status in real-time when the device is under repair.
You can also contact ASUS support at https://www.asus.com/ph/support/
8. Customer reviews: Reading customer reviews can be a useful way to get a sense of the pros and cons of different laptop models. Look for reviews from users with needs and usage patterns similar to yours.

If you are looking for an all-around laptop that can handle a wide range of tasks, run multiple programs at the same time without experiencing too much slowdown, a battery life that can last for several hours, a high-resolution OLED display that will provide a clear and crisp image, and will be used for tasks like content creation, photo, and video editing which is perfect for students and professionals, I recommend the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED (K3402).

ASUS Presents Seeing An Incredible Future at #CES2023 #ASUS
New lineup redefines the limits of performance, introduces game-changing, glasses-free 3D displays, and adds premium durability as new sustainable solutions take off
ASUS today revealed its latest lineup of innovations, world debuting products, and sustainable actions during its Seeing An Incredible Future virtual launch event for CES® 2023. New featured innovations include the world’s first glasses-free 3D OLED laptop display technology, which provides a unique visual and working experience for creators. ASUS also announced its out-of-this-world creator solutions including Windows 11-ready with up to the latest 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 HX series CPU and GeForce RTX 40 series Laptop GPU. New models include ProArt Studiobook 16 3D OLED (H7604), Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602BZ), Zenbook Pro 14 OLED (UX6404), Zenbook 14X OLED (UX3404), Vivobook Pro 16X OLED (K6604).
A range of new commercial products was also announced, each delivering incredible performance, versatility, and expandability for business. Highlights included the new ExpertBook B9 OLED (B9403CVA) an incredibly light and powerful commercial laptop crafted for business executives, and the ASUS Chromebook Vibe CX34 Flip (CX3401FBA) laptop for immersive gaming and versatility. This array of new business solutions offers the perfect companions for non-stop productivity, durability, and security.
During the show, ASUS emphasized the brand’s pioneering role in innovating for a sustainable future. “As we progress on this incredible journey towards sustainability, we continually leverage our technological leadership, data-driven rigor, and human-centered philosophy,” said ASUS Co-CEO S.Y. Hsu, “our goal is to ultimately create a net-zero enterprise that drives the shift towards a circular economy — with a responsible supply chain creating shared values for each and every one of us.”
Leveraging technology to create durable, reliable, and sustainable innovations
Over a decade ago, ASUS introduced the world’s first carbon-neutral laptop, followed closely by the revolutionary ASUS Bamboo-series laptops and, more recently, our first carbon-neutral business laptop in 2022. After these early steps toward creating a better future, ASUS continues to innovate and today showcased some of the sustainable actions being taken to bring exciting innovations that create the most ubiquitous, intelligent, heartfelt, and joyful smart life for everyone.
This year, over 90% of ASUS consumer laptops will meet EPEAT and ENERGY STAR® 8.0 standards. By focusing on product quality, functionality, durability, and upgradability, ASUS ensures longer product lifecycles by building products from the ground up with sustainability in mind. ASUS uses sustainable materials in product manufacturing and packaging — and has actively procured and employed 1,500 tons of PCR (Post-consumer recycled) plastic since 2017, along with over 20,000 tons of recycled paper in 2022. To do more, ASUS consistently pushes recyclability, resulting in over 40,000 tons of electronic waste (e-waste) being recycled in recent years.
And our sustainability efforts don’t stop there. By building more durable products, we are able to reduce waste and prolong the life of our laptops, as well as ensure users have incredible experiences, no matter where they are. That is why the all-new 2023 ASUS consumer laptop models and beyond will undergo the strictest durability testing of any product in the consumer laptop market — the extraordinarily tough MIL-STD 810H US military-grade standard, based on 12 test methods and 26 test procedures — to deliver long-lasting value, reliability, and durability.
Additionally, ASUS has partnered with Ishizuka Glass for our antimicrobial treatments, using its IONPURE antimicrobial agent on select products. ASUS was the first in the laptop industry to introduce the ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus[i], which can inhibit the spread of 99% of virus and bacteria ― including COVID-19 ― over a 24-hour period[ii].

Incredibly exciting software and hardware for creators
During the CES 2023 event, ASUS introduced a range of new and updated software and hardware innovations for content creators.

This new version hosts a refreshed, modern user interface and an exclusive new feature — Color Control, which combines all the color solutions specific to creators. ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 updates the ASUS Dial and ASUS Control Panel capabilities to not only allow new customizations for Adobe ® apps, but also for productivity, entertainment, and content creation apps — including Microsoft 365, Spotify, YouTube, and popular web browsers. ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 will be available for all Studiobook, Zenbook, and Vivobook models with ASUS Dial, ASUS DialPad, or ASUS ScreenPad Plus. It will also be available for the ProArt mouse range as well as all ASUS touchscreen monitors.
To push the limits of the creator experience, ASUS has joined forces with Pantone®, the world-leading authority on color, to provide an opportunity for creators to gain access to and utilize the Pantone resource database, including the Pantone Libraries, Color Space data, Color Harmonies, and much more. All these features will be available on all ASUS creator laptops via the ASUS-exclusive ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 software.
In an exciting industry-first announcement, ASUS today also introduced ASUS Spatial Vision, the world’s first glasses-free (autostereoscopic) 3D OLED technology, which allows immersive 3D experiences on a laptop — with no wearables required.
