During ASUS‘ keynote at Computex 2019, the Taiwanese company unveiled the DxOMark score of their newest flagship phone. The ZenFone 6, which was announced this month, got a total score of 98 in the selfie category. This makes it the best selfie phone tested by DxOMark, surpassing Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G.

It’s worth noting that the score of the ZenFone 6’s 48-megapixel camera is based on selfie tests. The rotating camera mechanism of the phone makes the main camera also its selfie shooter, which kind of explains why it was able to get a really high score.


As a selfie unit, the Flip Camera of the ZenFone 6 is commended for its large 1/2-inch Quad Bayer sensor that captures great selfies with the best texture-to-noise ratio around. It has a good autofocus system which keeps faces sharp and, of course, in focus.

Aside from stills, video selfies are praised with decent stabilization, accurate face exposure, and plenty of captured details. If you want a phone that can also act as a vlogging camera, the ZenFone 6 would be a good choice.

There are some caveats even though it’s already the best-rated selfie phone by DxOMark like depth of field issues with group selfies (both in phone and video) and red-eye artifact when using the LED flash.

The complete DxOMark selfie review of the ZenFone 6 can be found here. Interestingly, the main review of the phone’s camera is yet to be published, so that’ll be exciting.

Computex 2019 was full of products, from known brands all around the world, down to startups — which were all found at InnoVEX. We roamed around TWTC (Taipei World Trade Center) to find interesting startup products that would entice regular consumers and we found this portable device.

Paperang S2 is the second iteration of the device. Just like what they stand for, their products don’t use ink and instead rely on thermal printing and wear-resistant thermal paper. What’s improved is the 300dpi printing (in contrast to the S1’s less clear 200dpi). You can print your selfies, favorite photos, create simple texts and banners, and even add more designs before printing, all within the app.

Over the years, Pantone has grown as an authority and standard for colors. What was once a color guide for designers has become a part of contemporary culture. As people started identifying themselves through Pantone’s colored chips, manufacturers capitalized on this trend by incorporating Pantone into their products.

Through Pantone Universe licensing, manufacturers can apply Pantone’s branding and popular design. I’ve seen different applications, mostly on fashion and lifestyle accessories, but seeing it on computer peripherals and other electronics is a total treat.


Originally manufactured by DataPlus Supplies Inc., this Taiwanese company sells Pantone-licensed accessories that you’ll definitely buy to match your style.

For instance, they sell gaming accessories in different shades of blue. One of their best-looking is the teal-colored one, as it deviates from the usual blue and black combination used by gamers in their gaming setups.

You can also make a statement using these Pantone-colored USB fans and speakers when you’re traveling, especially in hot and humid countries. Fabulous, right?

For those who want to stay connected, stay away from the usual white and black power banks and get a Pantone-colored unit! There’s a rare chance of losing it compared to when you use a more generic power bank. And oh, they also have wireless chargers!

If you truly embrace Pantone’s branding, there’s a bag carrying the color guide’s popular design.

Lastly, there’s a whole line of computer accessories and electronics waiting for you. Pantone really found its way into our lives and yes, we want all of them!
