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:


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.



Look at this beauty! It has an incredibly slender body measuring only 3.9mm edge and weighing 170g only. A slim and light design that is apt for trekking making it comfortable and lighter in the pocket.

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*. 


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.

Trekking offers you incredible sights to capture in day as well as in night. ASUS Zenfone 2 keeps you ready to take snaps in both these extreme conditions of light. 

Super HDR of PixelMaster camera technology makes sure you can capture detailed images even in the brightest afternoon. With 400% better brightness and contrast it gives you fine details of shaded areas.

Low Light mode makes capturing photos and videos in the night an easy task. The combination of adjusting pixel size and advance image-processing algorithms of PixelMaster increases both light sensitivity reducing noise and boosting colour contrast by up to 400%.

The fun doesn’t end here. For experts who want more control over the ISO, Exposure and White Balance of their images. Here’s a video showcasing the DSLR experience:

Success is relative

Time is relative. This is what Albert Einstein determined in his Theory of Relativity. To explain you this in simple words as I recollect from my school days I'd say if you are spending time with your loved ones then one hour spent with them would feel like few minutes but if you put your hand on a hot pan for few seconds it would feel like minutes. Considering you understood my example I'd like to take it further and relate it to a very important aspect of our lives. Success What is success? Is it money, social status, traveling around the world, having a relationship or starting a family, commencing your own business or getting a job? Well as I see it success is anything which you dreamt of and worked hard for and achieved it. It can be as simple as getting up in the morning or sleeping on time in the night. It can be getting your driving license or buying a car. It can be spending a quality time with your family or buying a home for them. Is success time bound?

One of the everyday thing which we use all around the world is a clock. It has become such an integral part of our lives that neither the day starts nor the night ends without it. But have you #EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise? i.e.: From left to right. Why is it not the other way round? The answer to our curiosity lies in sundials and in which Earth's hemisphere the clock was invented in. Sundials was an earlier mechanism which were used to keep the track of time. They used to cast shadows with reference to the sun's position as it moved from East to West. Later when civilizations advanced mechanical clocks replaced the sundials.
