While I have plenty of geekings on a daily basis, I have to admit that it’s been ages since I’ve done a tech review. Due to the nature of my current and previous roles, I’ve always been into software and networking trends rather than hardware except if it’s in line with gaming or cameras. Today though, I’m making an exception as I stumbled on a reasonably good buy that’s actually an (almost) perfect fit for the blogger in me.
Say hello to my new phone: the ASUS ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL). It’s big (too big for my hands actually), bright, and VERY pink!
Prior to purchasing the ASUS ZenFone Selfie (Php 11,995), I’m a (very) satisfied iPhones 5C and iPhones 6 user. Like a lot of iOS snobs I know, I’ve always stuck with the iPhone for the last 3-4 years because of the overall build plus stable and crisp platform. On top of that, I sync all my Apple products and pay for apps (and stickers!). As long as I’m using the same Apple ID, my purchases are available on all of my (as applicable) iOS devices. Sleek, right?

Recently though, my overseas travels have been more frequent and rather than renting a wi-fi device, I purchase sim cards upon reaching my destination since I make frequent voice calls to local numbers. Changing sims on my 2 iPhones is not an option which always bring me to pop the foreign sim card into a 3rd phone. Carrying 3 phones ain’t fun when you also have a Go Pro, point and shoot camera, and other whatnots. Can you imagine how heavy my bag is? LOL The ASUS ZenFone Selfie totally saves me in the baggage and power arena since it’s already dual sim and packs 3000MAH worth of batt life. Definitely beats my iPhones in these feats.
