ASUS ZenFlash – Smartphone cameras can nearly match up to more expensive point-and-shoots, but the Achilles heel has always been the lowlight performance. Even with a dual flash, pictures can come out grainy, but thankfully ASUS has a solution. Their new ZenFlash sticks to your phone and is powered by a cable attached to your micro USB port. With everything in place, the ZenFlash uses a Xenon bulb to produce a flash that is 400 times more powerful than that wimpy LED flash.
