Zenfone Selfie ranks among the mid-range category while Galaxy S6 on the premium and high-end smartphone brands.

Based on each phones features and specifications that we’ve shown above, you’ve already have the idea which one would have outdone the other.

On a photo test drive that we’ve concluded, we’re going to show you a comparison of each brand to which what phone has the best camera performance through a series of shots that we’ve taken.

1. Inside a hotel’s ballroom with spontaneous lighting

All four photos are taken from the same angle and location. All of which were taken with wide angle shots.

2. Indoor hotel lobby

Same height, same point of view. Although we can see here that the Samsung Galaxy S6 got more wider perspective than the Zenfone Selfie’s almost tight frame.

3. Macro Focusing

We can see a clear Zenfone Selfie advantage here over the Galaxy S6. The pencil were focused clearly on the Selfie and the foreground color’s pretty much realistic than the shot taken from the S6.

4. Food Shots

This is almost a give-away. Food shots taken from the Samsung Galaxy S6 looks more appealing and appetizing than the photos taken by the Zenfone. Although both camera gave the same sharpness, there is much higher definition obvious on the S6.

5. Flat lay photo shot on natural light

A flat lay photo shot of a G-Shock watch indoor using natural light. Both are detailed and have the average sharpness that you can read all written text all over the watch. But, there is one advantage that the Zenfone has on this one. The photo taken from the Selfie is more bright than the S6. The shadow from the light is visible on the S6. But the color coming from the Samsung phone has more contrast and highlights the real color of the watch.

Selfie shots


We’ve asked some of the ladies to take a selfie shot using the Zenfone Selfie on different lighting conditions and the photos above are the evidence that the 13MP front camera of the Zenfone Selfie is enough good reason to put your money’s worth on this device.

Our verdict

The Asus Zenfone Selfie and Samsung Galaxy S6 are nearly on the edge of having the same quality performance when it comes taking photos. We’re definitely sold out on both smartphones and they’re ideal especially when going from one place to another without the hassles of bringing large cameras.

All photos were taken on Auto mode, HDR off, and without filters.


Each phones has its own perfection when it comes to features and specifications. If we are going to base our score from the photos that we’ve showed you, our score will be a tie. You can’t simply put one phone down over the other.

But here’s where we’re particular at. Zenfone Selfie has also the same premium feel without hurting the bank.

For almost the half of the price of the Samsung Galaxy S6, you can have the same great user experience that the Zenfone Selfie can deliver.

It’s not the battle of the camera features, phone specification, and features that matters here. It’s the relatively budget-friendly price of the Zenfone Selfie that will make your smartphone experience more fun and another way of spending your money, economical.

Asus Zenfone Selfie is available in colors Pure White, Aqua Blue, Glacier Gray, and Chic Pink.

Samsung Galaxy S6 is available in colors Black, White, Gold, and Blue.
