ASUS Zenfone 4 is now available in the Philippines

I can still remember how amazed I was when I got a hold of the Zenfone for the first time at the ASUS Zenfestival, a gathering of Zenfone fans in Davao City in 2015. I couldn't find a perfect Android phone for me until Zenfone was introduced to me by the ASUS Team. It's like I found a treasure chest in a form of a mobile phone. And lucky me, I won a Zenfone 2 Laser in a blogging contest after the event. Since then, I became a true fan of the ASUS Zenfones.

Last August 19, we were invited to the ASUS Livestream Party at Cafe Demitasse as they launched the new Zenfone 4 series in the Philippines. We got to meet Zenfans and other bloggers who are also excited to learn more about the Zenfone 4 lineup. We had super fun games and photo contests, and the best part was, we're able to have a hands-on experience with the new Zenfones before its scheduled launching.

Here are the Zenfones available at the event.
