Zenfone 3S MAX goes to Philippines

The timing was perfect! Nisha and I were going to beautiful destinations and the latest ASUS Zenfone landed literally on our laps.  A quick look at the features of recently launched Zenfone 3s Max made me sit up excitedly. There were major changes in OS, Camera and battery too.

Asus Zenfone 3, Camera Features

Have you heard of the saying “All good things come in small packages!”?

As travel bloggers we travel a lot and take a lot of pictures. I had always wished that good cameras came in small packages that I could use in a jiffy and which also gave a reasonable result.

Since I was to have the car for 3 days and had some work in Pune, I decided not to go too far but picked Pune as a destination for one day and the other days just drive around in case I need to go somewhere. I am not a fan of wasting fuel & time just for the heck of it.

The next day we started for Pune. First thing that you notice is the
