ASUS Zenfone 2

Trekking is a part of my life. Being a wanderer you have to be prepared to tackle the hurdles that come your way. So my backpack is loaded with necessary things to make the journey light and flexible. Not to forget the technological innovations these days, those are complimenting the essence of travelling. 

SMARTPHONE! Has a very significant part while trekking. It encapsulates many things that aid travelling. Like finding directions, capturing moments, connecting with the world in the moment of distress, work on the go (at times you just can’t ignore it) and still having enough juice to make the home coming journey entertaining/relaxing by watching movies, listening to songs or playing games. So choosing a good Smartphone is as important as packing your backpack. 


ASUS Zenfone 2 is the right companion for trekking. Here are my 5 reasons:

BoostMaster: 

Plans work best when they are spontaneous. That’s when there is very less time to charge your phone. Hey! ASUS Zenfone 2 has backed you up with this. BoostMaster technology charges the phone with double the speed. It shoots up the juice in the battery to 60% in no more than 39mins. BoostMaster’s fast charging for 10mins, you get 4hrs of 2G talk time and 2.7hrs of 3G talk time. This particular feature is very useful while trekking because you might get just few minutes to charge up your phone at a particular halt.

The physical rear keys, is just what is needed for a trekker while he is walking, looking at the marvels of the nature and listening to soft music. Adjusting the volume when the phone is in pocket has never been this easy! Just slide your hand over the pocket and *click click*. 

Camera: 

Moments while trekking are worth capturing for it adds to the beautiful collection of memories. ASUS Zenfone 2 adds quality to it with its 13MP rear camera consisting 5 element lenses and dual-LED flash. These lenses are not just to increase the count but to enhance the quality, clarity and precision of the images you capture.

Rajmachi also known as Udhewadi is a base village for the two marvellous forts Shrivardhan and Manaranjan.

It was a gloomy night. He was walking on the footpath kicking stones cursing the day. It was a really exhaustive day for him.

Backstory

Shifting in the bed realising why the alarm hasn't gone off yet, he looked at the clock. The hands of the clock showed 1:25. He was closing eyes thinking he got up in the middle of night when suddenly his attention turned towards the vase at the back of the clock which was shimmering in golden light. Shocked, he turned behind to see the sun has risen already! He immediately checked his mobile for the exact time and popped out of his bed cursing the alarm clock.
