Recently a friend of mine asked me to recommend a smartphone to him. Before he could tell me his requirements, I said Asus Zenfone 2. Well, I was too excited, but then I asked him to first tell me more about his budget and requirements from the phone. So he said he wanted something under 20,000, with the latest technology and a cool camera. So I said it again, go for the Asus Zenfone 2. And it makes sense; why would you spend so much in a phone when you can get the same or even better specs at such a less price? Gone are the days when there was just one brand and everything revolved around it. Today the customer wants the best, and there’s hundreds out there trying to provide that.

So why the Zenfone 2, you ask? Let me give you my reasons.

  1. Let’s begin with the first thing everybody looks for in a phone these days; The Processor. The Zenfone 2 comes in 2 models, and both have a Quad core processor, and trust me, it is what you need given the speed with which the app market in India is evolving. Almost all the online shopping, travel, banking companies want you to use their app. I think you’ll need a Quad core to handle all of that. Not to mention that it’s a 1.8 GHz processor, so even that 1.5 GB HD game of yours can be played seamlessly.
  2. Camera. With a 13 MP back and 5 MP front camera and 1080p Video recording, this phone is actually saving you a lot of money since you’ll probably not need to buy a digicam.
  3. Memory. Talking about the RAM, we got two models that offer 2 and 4 GB RAM. Yep, 4 GB, I’m not kidding. Not only is the Zenfone 2 the first such phone to offer this, it works like a charm. You can read the reviews yourself. And even for the ROM you have multiple options in 16/32/64 GB, not to mention the expandable memory that can add upto another 64 GB to your phone.
  4. Talking about the display, it’s a Corning Gorilla Glass 3, or what you may call the state of the art technology. A 5.5 Inch screen with a 403 ppi, trust me, you are looking at one of the finest screens in the category.
  5. Battery. It should’ve been the first point, but now that we’re here, how would you like your phone to have so many amazing features and still last for a whole day? It won’t sound so unreal when I tell you that this smartphone of yours is loaded with 3000 mAh battery. Even the best phones in this class offer a 2300 mAh. Oh, and it has a speed charging system, so the first 60% gets done in just 40 minutes… Sweet, isn’t it?
  6. With such a wide range of options available, it would be a shame if you can’t get the color of your choice. So let me make it easy for you with a picture.Too.Many.Options!!
  7. This is where most discussions of us Indians end, Price! So how much does it cost? Well, given the brand and looking at the features alone, I was expecting a big number at first. I mean, I have bought phones worth over 30000 that have less features than these. But here’s the good part, this range of Asus Zenfone 2 is available from 12,999 (2 GB Model) to 22,999 (4 GB Model). And if that doesn’t make you buy it right now, I don’t know what will!

Choosing a phone can be a tricky task. A phone stays with you for probably the longest time in a day compared to anything else and no matter what you use it for, it is one of the most important gadgets you own. In short, it just has to be the best. It’s a good thing that Asus has made it easier for you. Go make it your next phone. Good luck.


This has always been the rule of the world; the most important things are almost always the most overlooked! May that be the air we breathe, the food we eat or our own body that enables us to do that all, we take it all for granted. Same goes for one of the most important and the largest organ of our body, our Skin. For most people, especially the working professionals, the daily bath is probably the only care taking action when it comes to the skin. And mostly we don’t even bother about the small pimples or marks that become a problem all of a sudden when we get an invitation to a party! So what if I were to tell you by giving a mere 5 minutes to your skin each day, you could keep it glowing and radiant? Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? After all, it deserves that much.

Being a guy, I’m not much familiar to the techniques to keep the skin healthy apart from using a good quality Face cream and Facewash. But if my sister has taught me the one thing, it is how to take the best care of your skin without too many efforts. And let me tell you, none of it is artificial. Most of the methods she taught me were natural and recommended in the Ayurvedic Sciences itself.

The first one that I remember was Aloevera. It is a desert plant that can easily be grown at home and is also available in different forms in the markets. The paste of aloevera leaf pulp is something that can get rid of all your pimples and blackheads for you! And the best part, it is as natural as it gets. No mixtures required, just take a leaf, peel it and apply the pulp on your skin.

One more was Neem. We all know about the cleansing qualities of Neem. Now a simple application of Neem powder mixed with a little water can get your skin glowing and fresh.

Of course all that is not pretty useful if you don’t do that very basic things like Washing your face the first thing when you wake up, cleaning it properly once you’re back from somewhere outside and washing it at least four times in a day. And you know what, apart from Neem and Aloe Vera, there is one more amazing natural ingredient that can help your skin glow; turmeric. I’m sure you know about it, after all this is the thing every bride applies to her face before her marriage, and we all know that’s the time any woman looks the most beautiful in her life.

So how about I tell you about a solution to all your skin problems in form of turmeric? Sounds awesome, right? And it’s true. The well-known VICCO Turmeric is now available to solve all your skin related problems so that you can come closer to a bright and glowing, radiant skin without pimples or blackheads. And since we’ve all known VICCO since we were kids, why do I need to tell you more about it, I’d rather have you check it yourself!
