There are a lot of things you think you can’t live without, which are, in reality, truly unnecessary. I used to die of envy during my teens, when my friends would drive past our house on their newly polished cars. Now, as a global traveler, I find owning a car a nuisance, because owning costly material things can weigh you down. Besides, there’s Uber.
On the flip side of the discussion, there are a million things you thought you don’t need, but they are in fact, crucial to your survival and happiness.
This is exactly the realization I had over the past week as I was asked to try out and review the powerful and highly reliable Asus Zenfone 4 Max. I loved the earlier version of Asus because of the flexibility it gives me when it comes to video and quality. I never thought I would need another variant. Also, I never really took paid attention to battery life, because let’s face, you can always plug your phone and charge. I Or so I thought.
Because I was embarking on a three-week adventure in Europe and the Mediterranean, the past week has been crazy and hectic, more than the usual, as I tried to attend meetings, and finish reports. There was a ton of things left to do, so much so, that I had to report for work early mornings, and then go home late at night.
You know what kept me sane and connected? You got it. While my earlier Asus phones were dependable for entertainment and selfies, it was the amazing 5000 mAh battery life of the Asus Zenfone 4 that got me through this hell of a week. Needlesss to say, I was able to go the distance.
I charged the phone on Sunday night and I never needed to recharge the phone until Wednesday morning. In between, I was able to make about 50 calls, watch several video presentations on my mobile, surf the internet and listen to some feel good music during my down time. I also dabbed in video blogging.
I also used the 13-megapixel main camera to take some Instagram-worthy pictures.
And yes, the 8-megapixel front cam, boosted by the live beautification feature of the phone helped me take some selfies that immediately appeared as profile pics in my social media accounts (haha).
All the while, my other phone’s battery is drained after two hours of multi-tasking.
This week made me realize that I badly need an Asus Zenfone 4 max in my life, especially as hit the road once again and face new adventures.
When traveling, the one thing that always sets me back are drained batteries. I would stumble upon amazing vistas and city scenes, only to find to find out that my phones and cameras are dead.
But those memories will soon be a thing of the past, thanks to the long-lasting power of the Asus Zenfone 4 Max.
