My New Favorite Phone

“Wait! Stop! Which phone is that? Hey is it the new ASUS ZenFone 2? I heard a lot about this upcoming phone from ASUS! It has incredible features and specs isn’t it? What about the ASUS ZenFone 2 price in India? People are saying it’s priced at a reasonable rate! How did you manage to grab this phone? I envy you! I want to own it right now…”

This is exactly what every single individual I meet will say to me when I get my hands on the brand new, stunning ASUS ZenFone 2! This beauty from ASUS has all the right reasons why every individual should purchase. Smartphones are supposed to bring about a new experience in an individual’s life but with the ASUS ZenFone 2, it would create a new meaning altogether. Not only in terms of convenience, but its smart technology combined with its stylish looks would make it a must-buy option. So, here are the 5 best reasons how the ASUS ZenFone 2 can take my smartphone experience a notch higher:

1. Super Fast Charging

Now charging gets faster on the ASUS ZenFone 2! Image source: http://www.asus.com/Phones/ZenFone_2_ZE551ML/

With so many applications to use, the one thing that worries smartphone users is drained up battery. Can you imagine you are in the middle of an important call or perhaps you are engrossed watching the climax scene of a movie, and the battery just drops dead! Ouch! That hurts, doesn’t it? But with the ASUS ZenFone 2, your battery is juiced up to 60% in- hold your breath- less than 39 minutes! (*drum rolls please*). The ASUS BoostMaster technology, which is exclusively limited to ASUS devices, offers faster charging than traditional speeds on the ZenFone 2. This means that I don’t have to wait for long hours to let my phone charge. The rapid charging rate of the phone keeps me on the go!

2. Excellent pictures even under low light conditions

When I head out for dinner with my friends, there may be dim lights at the restaurant. But that will neither hamper my mood nor restrict me from clicking high-quality pictures. The 13 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture lens of the ASUS ZenFone 2 ensures that it captures the beautiful smiles on our faces even under low light conditions. It makes the images 400% brighter at night and can you guess what? I don’t need a flash to click more vivid photos! Wow! That is the power of its HDR functionality. When my friends demand a group selfie, I know that they won’t be disappointed as the 5 MP front camera of the phone captures crystal clear images.

3. Stunning Slim Body which fits in the palm

As a shopaholic, I usually end up carrying multiple shopping bags in my hands. What about my phone? How am I to hold it? No, worries! The ultra-thin ergonomic design of the ASUS ZenFone 2 sits comfortably in the palm of my hands. The brushed metallic finish of the body and the concentric circle detailing can allow me to hold it effortlessly.  The elegant and eye-catching look of the device makes it incredible, and I know that firm grip on the body will ensure it doesn’t slip from my hands. Isn’t that cool?

4. Brings characters to life while watching HD movies

Enjoy breath-taking visuals! Image Source: http://www.phonesreview.co.uk/wp-content/phoneimages/asus.zenfone-2.jpg

It’s my favorite scene from my most-watched Hollywood action film. It feels life-like! Thanks to the 1920 x 1080 full HD IPS display of the ASUS ZenFone 2! The 5.5-inch screen with 16 M colors and 403ppi pixel density ensures details in every shot. It seems as if the visuals are leaping off the screen. Even better, the 72% screen-to-body ratio creates a make-belief aura. Each and every scene seems impeccable and maximizes my viewing experience. My movie-watching experience is bound to get a hundred times better with the ASUS ZenFone 2.

5. Multitasking without the worry of any lag

The phone has a 64-bit super quad-core Intel Atom processor. And a 4 GB RAM combined with it? You may think I am kidding! But no this is true! I can enjoy transitioning between creating a presentation, chatting with my friends, listening to music, watching movies, and much more. In spite of running so many applications, there would be no sign of phone lag on the ASUS ZenFone 2. As an avid gamer, I can continue to play my favorite games, shop on an E-commerce app, and surf the internet, all at the same time. And still not a sign of my phone slowing down. Evidently, the ASUS ZenFone 2 calls for a round of applause!

The power-pack ASUS ZenFone 2 has all it takes to be ranked as the #1 smartphone of the year. With its brilliant functions and features, it has become my all new Favorite phone !!

ThoughtBuzz – A Complete Social Media Analytic Solution

As brands evolve their social media strategies and move towards data driven marketing, the evolution of social media analytics tool has been an interesting scenario to watch. From paid to the free ones, these tools have evolved in their offerings, quality of data mining, stunning UI and design.

Brand managers and agency professionals have always looked at the aforesaid parameters to choose the best tool for their need. Today, I will be reviewing the tool ThoughtBuzz to help brand and agency professionals understand how they can work with it.

Based out of Singapore, ThoughtBuzz has been around since 2009 has worked with some of the big names in the industry such as Toyota, P&G Olay, Myntra etc.

Lets get into the details !!

The Dashboard

The first thing I noticed about ThoughtBuzz was its ability to collate data from all the social media profiles present at different platforms and showcase it on a single dashboard. Thus, saving a lot of time switching between platforms and profiles.

At present, it helps you track profiles in the following platforms:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. YouTube
  4. Instagram

While many brands adopting Instagram, tools allowing you to track performance there is very less or absent as of now. In this context, ThoughtBuzz seems to be way ahead of its competitors.

dashboard

Apart from trends and weekly/monthly charts, the dashboard will also give you post-wise analytics to help you analyze your content strategy and understand which kind of updates are performing well for you.

Interface

I found the interface user friendly and clean. There are different sections where you can check your notifications, conversations, analytics and influencers etc. The information shared within these sections are easy to understand which makes it easy for any analyst to derive insights. The Facebook Analytics dashboard might look similar to Facebook Insights but only the useful charts are shown. So you can see trends and data charts that are not as complex as Insights. The design is also easy on the eyes and uncluttered, and at no point you will be overwhelmed. I have always come across social media management tools that throw out a lot of data which clutters the interface; in contrast, this is a breath of fresh air.

charts

Moreover, the tool is completely optimized for mobiles. So whatever charts and trends you see on your laptop, you can view them seamlessly on your handheld device as well. You don’t need to download any apps.

Influencers

ThoughtBuzz has realized that brands and agencies are focusing more on influencer marketing and relations management; so they help you not only to identify influencers but also connect with them.

influen

Based on the interactions of your fans within your community, the tool helps you identify those who are the most active and also your critics. By filtering them, you can build strong relations with them. This, in turn, will motivate them to spread the word about you; alternately, you can invite them for your next influencer campaign.

Improvement

There are always room for improvement. When I added multiple accounts to it, it seems to take a lot of time to get the data. may be its due to amount of data. But still it can be improved. Also with vast of people using LinkedIn and Pinterest if it can be added, it would be top notch.

Conclusion

A minimalistic look and easy navigation makes it very easy to use. You don’t have to look around much for insightful data. The tool is robust and helpful for any analyst – be it an expert, intermediate or a beginner. I would suggest you to give it a shot for your social media tracking, at least with the free plan, and see it how it fits in your analytics plan.

Shop on the go with mobile shopping apps

Being a crazy online shopper, it is mandatory for me to check my email for special deals and offers by popular shopping websites. I love buying stuff online since it lets me explore more options, get competitive pricing and save time and money while getting things I want to. Whether it is a lipstick or a décor piece for my coffee table, everything is sourced from the virtual world. Everyone who shops online or love to do so will understand this very well.

The only complication is to wait to get my hands on a laptop or computer with internet access, which is not always around. In some of the offices, such websites are banned, only because of mad shoppers like me. Shopping apps for mobile phones are a boon, a blessing by the gods of shopping world for followers of this religion. These apps have made it much easier for me and other mad shoppers to buy anything they wish with an ease.

Buy from anywhere!

You can now purchase your desired stuff from anywhere. Since we all have cell phones in our pockets or mostly in our hands all the time, it is very convenient. It is like having my own personal portable shopping mall.

Amazing deals!

Screenshot_2015-05-14-10-26-02

If you are new to this world, let me tell you, users of mobile shopping app get special discounts, deals and offers every day. Some of these offers are quite lucrative and they are obviously limited to app. If you will try to get them from your desktop site, it won’t happen. You will also get push notifications once a sale or discount begins on the site. Isn’t it cool! Special offers meant only for you!

Easy tracking!

Screenshot_2015-05-14-10-29-10

With mobile shopping app, you can track your orders and purchases quite easily. You can now know where your product is after it has been shipped. It lets you plan your day accordingly and avoid facing troubles with the courier guy for delivering your package to different address.

Return/exchange with a click!

 

Who knew apps could make your life so much easier to handle. With the shopping app, you can now simply go to your order page, select your particular order and choose return or exchange with a click if a product was unable to appeal you. Much easier than signing on to your desktop site and doing the same thing isn’t it.

Save and share!

Screenshot_2015-05-14-10-30-50

You saw a product but you do not want to buy it right now. Save it for later using save option. It is exactly like working on your wish list for your birthday gift. Mobile shopping app also lets you share the product with your friends if you like something for them through social media apps. You will not have to take screenshots and then look for the product later on!

Shop the look!

Screenshot_2015-05-14-10-30-38

Did you know you could also shop the look just like the model shown in the picture of product! Just click on the shop the look option and you can buy the entire look with an ease. No need to scroll up and down to look for the exact same products.

I came across to this amazing online shopping app by Jabong having all these features. Yes, you will have to get a hang of it initially just like any other app, but once it is done, shopping is bliss.

Advertisements – The Good Bad And the Ugly

Advertisements or commercials are normally the things which we love to hate. Because they pop up unannounced when we are immersed into the TV watching a high intensity match or a climax of a movie. Most of us use it as the time to skip through channels to find anything interesting is being shown in other channels. But there are some ads which are either made so cleverly or so dumb, that we cant get it off our mind. In this post I will list down some of those ads which fall in that category. 

If you are from the 90’s you would remember this ad which is shown repeatedly in Doordarshan every five minutes when there is a break. Even though its made decently to convey the message, the jingle at the end “Vajrudanti vajrudanti vicco vajrudanti vicco powder vicco paste …” keeps ringing in your head and repeated hearing may even lead to insomnia 😛 ! I don’t know why even today they use this same jingle in their commercials 🙁

Well as I spoke about Jingle, there is one which became so close to heart and finally a ringtone for millions of Indians. Its none other than the Airtel Ad featuring Music maestro AR RAHMAN. The Music was godesque and so soothing to hear.

There are some wonderful commercials which shows the world, how advanced we have become in technology and other areas.  This ad from Hyundai creating and delivering Message to space is surely an achievement, we can be proud of !!

As humans we always look for inspiration to motivate us. And there are some commercials which within their limited 1 or 2 minutes time, touch our deepest part of the heart and leave us inspiring !

Below are few of those inspirational ads !!

Well when you think of corporates and conglomerates there are always rivals and competitors. And some of them come up with brilliant and funny ads to showcase their brand has more value than its rivals.

We all know how big the rivalry is with Samsung and Apple. And when Samsung started to mock Apple and its fan boys in its commercial it became a huge hit and soon other mobile manufacturers followed it up with similar tactics.

Check out one of the first such commercial of S3 mocking Apple 😛 !!

If we are talking about rivalry, we cannot miss out the Coke wars between Coca Cola and Pepsi !! If you take a look at the below commercial You will know of sure who comes out at top 😛 !! Even though its banned, its sure to tickle some funny bones !!

Recently when Cadbury came knocking Nestle’s door by mocking its Munch, Nestle gave the perfect Punch as a reply.Check it out in below commercials 🙂

Finally we watch these ads to act as a small medium of smile and laughter to spice up the mood. There are so many commercials which bring out smile and laughter. Lets check out some of them below !! It hosts some of the funniest commercials ever to be telecasted 🙂

If we are talking funny, how can we leave out PEPSI ? They themselves have some of the funniest ads to be created and telecasted in the media. Let me list some of them below !!

Did you like what you have seen Or have I missed some good ones? Share your views in comments below !!

Note:

“This Pepsi IPL, it’s not just about cricket. It’s time to crash with your own created ad! Make your own Pepsi ad & if it’s chosen, it could play on TV during Pepsi IPL! And hey, it doesn’t end here… Even if you’re chosen as a finalist, you stand a chance of winning a prize amount of Rs.1 lakh! So what are you waiting for guys?”

I am joining in on all the Pepsi IPL action in my own style with the #CrashThePepsiIPL activity at BlogAdda.”

The Unsung Indian Heroes

 Strong women don’t play victim, don’t make themselves look pitiful and don’t point fingers. They stand and they deal.

While this quote from blogger turned New York Times best-selling author and speaker Mandy Hale inspires and motivates thousands of women across the world, Manju Devi from Jaipur has gone ahead and given her flesh and blood to Hale’s words. In our society where patriarchy is deep-rooted and a woman venturing to work in male dominated sectors is considered a blot on the family’s name, Manju Devi is defying the odds working as a porter. Yes, you read that right. Manju Devi is a porter at the Jaipur railway station, she’s the only female porter at this station, and the first female porter of the entire North Western Railway Region.

A rural home-maker, Manju was left to fend for herself and her three little children when her husband Mahadev, a porter at Jaipur railway station died of liver failure. Illiterate and a widow at just 33 years of age, she had no one to fall back on, to help her cope with the seemingly hard and harsh life that lay ahead of her. Her in-laws were poor and going back to her parents too was out question, for there too her many siblings were trying to make ends meet though odd jobs.

It was under these circumstances that she decided to approach the porter union to help her claim her husband’s job. With the help of the union and the railway authorities, Manju finally got her porter’s license in March 2013. Armed with her porter badge no. 15, she joined the porter service at the Jaipur railways station, setting a huge example of courage and determination in the face of adversity.

We’ve all travelled by train and we know that life of a travel porter is not easy. Besides physical strength, one needs a lot of stamina to run around the platforms all day long. Quite naturally settling now in her new job was not easy for Manju. She would often break down and spend more hours crying instead of working. She had left all her kids back home with her mother, so their absence too added to her sorrows. But she knew that crying would not help her in any way and so gradually started immersing herself more in her work. With the help of some supportive porters at the station, she learnt the basics of her job, understanding the techniques of carrying heavy luggage on her head and shoulders. Today, she proudly says that she is happy with the work she does and is able to take care of her family with her earnings.

While many women in Manju’s place would have given up and cursed their fate in the face of such misfortune, Manju’s will of steel led her towards a braver path. She did not just break into the male bastion, but is also going stronger and steadier by the day.

People like Manju Devi deserve admiration and accolades and JSW Steel has taken the initiative of recognizing people like her – ordinary people, who possess extraordinary will of steel. To achieve this JSW has compiled together a list of strong individuals whose willpower has changed the world and going by the public votes will felicitate the individuals who have showed immense resilience in the face of adversity.
