Aside from Korean superstar actor Gong Yoo being the new face for ASUS’ Zenfone 4 series of smartphones, we also have our own local ambassadress for the brand. Bea Alonzo, best known for playing Basha in One More Chance and A Second Chance, was unveiled during the Zenfone 4 #WeLovePhoto event to be the new face of ASUS in the Philippines. The ABS-CBN star is currently topbilling the teleserye A Love To Last opposite Ian Veneracion.
“It was a pleasant surprise for me. I know they’re well known to be a brand that does good laptops and smartphones and I know that I will be in good hands,” Alonzo said during the special presscon that happened right after the big Zenfone 4 event. In addition to being the brand ambassador for ASUS Zenfone 4, Bea has just wrapped up a webseries done with the brand, which featured her acting opposite a non-actor from the Czech Republic. “When I also learned they are interested in doing webisodes for me, siyempre natuwa ako because parang yung dalawang passions ko – my passion for acting and passion to endorse a good product – parang nag-combine. It’s a good thing for me because I get to do two things that I love so much at the same time.”
When asked about what she liked about the Zenfone 4 Pro, Bea mentioned that the phone was sleek and light, had a long battery life, a decent volume for playing music, and the three cameras.
During the interview, Bea was also asked about what tips she could give for people to improve their selfies. The ASUS Zenfone 4 series puts a great emphasis on taking photos – especially selfies – that the brand came out with the Zenfone 4 Selfie and the Selfie Pro. Bea’s top tips for taking better selfies are:
“Dapat mataas yung angle. Number two, find a place that has good lighting. Number three, when in doubt, suck your cheeks (laugher)! Number four, always feel good, always feel beautiful. And number five, use this phone!”
With accessibility to the internet becoming easier for Filipinos, Bea has said that she takes her status as a celebrity and an endorser very seriously. She advocates responsible posting on social media: “I think a lot about what I post before I post it. You have to be responsible for every little photo you post.”
