The ZenFone 2 Laser Now Has Official TWRP Recovery Support


The ZenFone 2 series has gained no small amount of acclaim since its introduction thanks to good specs and low prices, and the Laser variant with its laser auto-focus module is the one to get if you want a better camera experience. Low prices and good hardware are the sea in which the Android modder swims, so naturally the Team Win Recovery Project has supported the line well. Now they've released an official version of their custom recovery for the ZenFone 2 Laser. You can download it now from the TWRP website.

ASUS ZenFone Zoom Review: 3x Optical Zoom On A Phone That Would Still Be Good Without It

It wasn’t long ago that ASUS, while beloved by many on the desktop computing scene, was hardly a player when it came to smartphones. Some early Android tablet adopters will remember their Transformer books, but the ZenFone line is relatively new and has been the most serious attempt by ASUS to break into phones. It would be easy to overstate the popularity of the ZenFone, especially in western markets, but there’s no doubt that lovers of Android now have ASUS on their radar.

We at Android Police have looked at several ZenFones and the latest entry is the ZenFone Zoom, which is a characteristic mixture of uniqueness, ambition, value, and zaniness that we have seen before.

[Update: ASUS ZenWatch 2 Too] Google Store Finally Recognizes The Built-In Speaker Of The Huawei Watch — Android Wear Update Imminent?

The saga of speaker support on Android Wear has been a long one. First we spotted the speaker inside the Huawei Watch despite no mention of it in any product documentation, then the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE was released with calling and speaker support only to be quickly canceled by LG, then Google officially announced cellular support on Wear without explaining how the speaker would work in that case, and finally a test build of Wear made it onto a user's device with an activated speaker for calls, alerts, and speech-to-text.

Asus ZenFone Zoom Now Available In The States Exclusively From B&H

Asus announced the ZenFone Zoom over a year ago, but despite how long the phone has taken to arrive stateside (after having long ago launched in other parts of the world), the phone is still a unique piece of hardware. Optical zoom is a rare thing to find in a smartphone camera, as is the dedicated camera button.

ASUS Chromebit CS10 Review: Testing The Chrome OS Waters Has Never Been Easier (Or More Affordable)

Let me get this out of the way right out of the gate: I love Chrome OS. I wanted to love it back when I reviewed the original Chromebook Pixel some years ago, but it just wasn’t where it needed to be for me. Fastforward a bunch of months, and Google made a ton of useful and thoughtful changes that made Chrome OS a legit desktop contender (for me at least). So, like I said in my recent What We Use post, I made the leap to Chrome OS as my main laptop about 18 months ago (or so) and haven’t looked back.

ASUS ZenFone Zoom 64GB Coming To The US In Early February For $399 With Its 3x Optical Zoom In Tow

A full year after its announcement at CES 2015, the ASUS ZenFone is ready to make its grand public debut on US territory. The phone, which looks like an amalgam of an Android phone and a Lumia 1020, touts some very interesting and rare, if not unique, features and it will officially launch in the US in early February for $399.

The coup de force of the ZenFone Zoom is its 13MP 3X optical zoom lens with 10 element HOYA arrangement, laser autofocus, OIS, and a dedicated camera shutter button which should result in sharp and detailed photos, even at a distance.

[Deal Alert] ASUS ZenPad S 8 Tablet Is Down $30 On Amazon To $169 For The 2GB/32GB Version, $269 For The 4GB/64GB One

ASUS' ZenPad S 8 is one of the more interesting Android tablets on the market right now. That isn't a lot to say given how tablet releases seem to have stalled and become a second-thought for most manufacturers, but it doesn't detract from the S 8's nice specs. The tablet, which was released back in July exclusively on Best Buy, has an 8" IPS 2048x1536 display at a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3530 processor, with a MicroSD slot, USB Type-C connector, Android 5.0, and it usually retails for a very acceptable $199 or $299 depending on the storage and camera configuration.
