The SELFIE Life Of A Fashion Blogger With ASUS Zenfone Selfie

Once upon a time, not too long ago, all I wanted was a mobile phone, the looks did not matter and I cared not about the capabilities – just needed an upgrade from the cordless phone. Ahh!! what a liberating thought that was.

Fast forward to today and all I want is a phone that can substitute for my brain every now and then, that can remember a 1000 numbers, that can take the most amazing pictures even in pitch darkness and most importantly a faithful partner that will never die on me but one that isnt too needy and gracefully allows me to move on to a better version when I feel the need to.

Clearly there cannot be that one perfect phone which is perfect for everyone, since everyones needs are different there is room for so many phones – marketers rejoice while I struggle to pick the right one for the right price..

Recently, I got a chance to play around with and experience the ASUS Zenfone Selfie for a couple of weeks, I enjoyed it so so much and it made me realise that though my expectations from my phone might have escalated, they are still considerably simple.

1. The Camera

Being a fashion blogger and a mother, selfies, pictures and capturing memories is an essential and enjoyable part of my day. Carrying a camera along is not always possible and always is inconvenient, hence a phone that can multitask as a professional camera is an absolute delight – it is my number one requirement from my phone.

13 megapixel front and rear cameras with flash and many modes to play with.

As the name rightly suggests, this phone is all about its kick ass camera abilities, the camera is the best phone camera I have ever experienced - the clarity, the number of modes that you can shoot in and the laser auto focus makes it such an all round, heavy duty, beautiful camera.

I was also sent the ASUS Lolliflash, a cute little circular, coin size disk that when connected to the phone makes shooting in the dark, a day like experience. The flash has adjustable light intensity and also a few filters that make phone photography even more fun. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

2. Internal Memory

When you are taking pretty pictures, you obviously want to share them and to make that easy, you need a 100 apps installed on the phone. Apps for capturing pictures and videos, editing pictures and sharing them. Apps for shopping and apps to keep the kids entertained in the car. Hence a huge memory is a huge plus in my book.

32GB internal storage seems just enough at-least for now. The memory is expandable.

3. Battery Life

I don’t know how many times I have entered restaurants and looked for a table next to a plug point so I can charge the phone. There have been so many times that I have hung up on people, mid conversation, just to save up on that last bar of battery. In-spite of cute looking battery banks, a phone with phenomenal stamina gets all my love.

The battery life of the phone does not disappoint. I used the phone for a week or so and never found myself cursing the battery or running for plug points, although battery life can never ever be enough.

4. Ease Of Use

The thing that puts me off about gadgets and toys, the most, is when I need to reach out for the 1000 page users manual and study it for an hour just to be able to get the phone to do something simple. I need my phone to be super simple so that I can save my time and intellect for more important things.

I did not need to study the user manual of the phone at all. Yay!!

5. Looks

A phone is something that is constantly with me, almost a part of me, it is my favourite accessory and it needs to look good. Pretty, bold colours and a dash of bling, win a phone a plateful of brownie points in my book.

As far as looks go, it was love at first sight for me. I was sent the ASUS Zenfone Selfie in a pretty bubblegum pink and which girl does not like a pink phone.

I loved the look of the phone but once we got to know each other better, I have to say that the personality and performance of the phone are spot on too.

If your phone requirements are close to mine then this phone is a great budget buy, specially if you are selfie obsessed like me…
