ZenFone 2 Laser: An amazing tool for travellers and photography lovers

My early photographic gear
I got my first SLR camera way back in 1993 when my uncle from New Jersey, USA gifted me and my elder brother his Practica film-based SLR camera that had a 58mm Carl Zeiss lens attached to it. The camera changed the way I looked at the world. From from one film to another, from one lens to another and from one camera to another I started exploring the world of photography. I graduated to digital cameras in 2004 when I got myself a 4.1 pixel aim and shoot Samsung camera. The same year I got myself my first ever DLSR - Nikon D70s. This DSLR changed the way I took photographs for a long time. Suddenly there was no hassle of carrying and handling films and no worry about the time and cost of processing images. This continued till the age of mobile phones.

Graduating to a champion of a mobile phone camera- Zenfone 2 Laser
Although now I carry my DSLR to face every serious photography opportunity, I always felt the want of a better phone camera than the one present in my Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos in the absence of my DSLR. I have been writing for news papers since 1998 and have been a travel blogger for nearly a decade now. I was always in need of a camera that could compliment my writing skills.

I was in need of the right mobile phone that not only allowed me make clear voice calls, but also had to be a device that had used the latest 4G technology to help me browse the world of internet. But most importantly I needed a phone that would to a great extent fill the gap of me not having a DSLR handy. Fortunately for me I have been able to get a Zenfone 2 Laser. As they say, this phone is the real men among the boy phones out there. It not only allows 4g video calls but also has an amazing internet speed (up to 150 mbps download and 50 mbps upload speed). What's more? It has an awesome 2915 mAh battery that has a standby time up to 16 days, talk time up to 24 hours and allows web browsing (Wi-Fi) up to 12 hours! But as a photographer, nothing interests me more than its photography specifications. Some of its features are a straight competition even for a prosumer DSLR.
