There was a time when communication and messages were sent through pigeons and messengers. People walked for miles to pass on a message either in the form of folklores, songs or verses. Then came one of the most remarkable inventions of all times – the telephone in the 1870s by Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray; and the rest as we know is history.
From sending telegrams, to booking a trunk call hours before speaking to a loved one, communication technology has seeped through the nooks and corners at a global level and also takes the credit for being instrumental in connecting the people worldwide.
Today we’re spoilt for choices such as which handset to buy, because the mere act of calling up a friend/ client/ family and having a conversation is now more of an experience, than just a chore.
A mobile phone today is a part of your body. You leave home without it and you feel as though a part of you is missing. We wonder how we managed years ago without having to carry a gadget with us.
Now mobile phones allow you to plan you day, work, expenses, meetings, presentations, send urgent emails, capture memorable moments – the works!

Five reasons why you should pick up an Asus Zenfone2
18-year-old Tejas Mehta, a first year Commerce student from Mumbai who’s known as the ‘gadget guru’ of his family, who is often consulted by relatives and friends before buying a new electronic gadget – recently tried out the Asus Zenfone2 and shared his inputs with The Lifestyle Portal –
1) Budget: Money is everyone’s concern and this phone certainly ticks that box. ₹20,000+ for the specs it is offering is a pretty sweet deal, rivaling those of OnePlus One and Xiaomi Mi4.
2) Screen: The screen size and brightness is unexpectedly satisfying for the price. Bright and crisp colours on a 5.5 inch coupled with a form factor with not too big – not too thin bezels makes the phone size ideal.
3) RAM: Variants offering 2 & 4 GB RAM make the phone very attractive. It improves it’s ability of functioning with multiple applications on at the same time. Also, one can take full advantage of the expandable memory and cram their phone with movies and music without worrying about any lag.
4) Interface: The Asus ZenUI is a very clean and almost bloatware free addition over the stock Android Lollipop. With various little tweaks you can make this phone easy to use. The experience of using the Asus Zenfone2 is pretty clean, and the Easy Mode is a perfect solution for the not so tech savvy users.
5) Processing: The Intel quad core processor clocking at 2.5 GHz (for reference POV, most mid range laptops clock at 4.5-5.5GHz) complemented by the Gfx graphic chip make the performance lag free enabling high powered gameplay without app crashes. Also makes browsing very smooth.
