Pasta is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with and a deliciously cooked pasta sautéed in flavorful sauce paired with right wine is my idea of comfort food. Over the years there is more and more intrusion of pasta in our Indian kitchens and very comfortably it made place for itself in the kitchen shelf beside lentils and masalas. When Asus team came up with the idea of sharing my thoughts about newly launched Zenfone 5 I thought of combining two most dynamic crafts food and technology to make this post more interesting for the readers.
The variety of pasta……
The combination of pasta and delicious sauce is almost a science in itself. There are certain simple rules which to be followed to get the right combination, freshly made filled pastas need to be served with light sauce while other hand rolled pasta like tagliatelle can be served with robust sauces along with meats and seafood. While ready made dried pasta does not have much taste of it’s own it is more dependent on the accompanying sauce so the choice of possible combinations is wider.
Review of Zenfone 5 #MyAsusZenfone….
Taiwan-based Asus has expanded its India footprint with the launch of the new ZenFone smartphone series which is comprised of three models, the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 6. Recently the company approached me for experiencing ZenFone 5 to share my reviews about it as a food blogger, and I must accept it definitely got my attention with its good looks, user friendly interface and fast intel processor.
The ZenFone 5 comes with 2GB of RAM and will be sold with either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage plus support for up to 64GB microSD cards, that much of space is sufficient for me to store as many food photographs I want in my smartphone. And the best feature is fast intel processor which never creates problem even if the phone and external storage memory are overloaded with the data.
Look and feel…
The ZenFone 5 is a basic candybar phone with a simple yet appealing style, smooth finishing and lightweight body give it quiet a fascinating appearance. The ZenFone 5 is available in five colours in India: Charcoal Black, Pearl White, Cherry Red, Sky Blue, and Solar Yellow. I got my hands on the Charcoal Black one and it looks stylish and elegant.
For a person like me who like to use smartphone more than laptop, display section plays an important role, the ZenFone 5’s front is dominated by its 5-inch display which makes browsing, editing photos, video conferencing much more convenient. ZenFone 5 is equipped with a high resolution 1280 x 800 HD IPS+ display, sporting a pixel density of 294ppi for an impressive visual appearance. The color contrast of the display screen is well balanced with improved clarity, lighter and beautiful vivid colors. The Gorilla scratch proof screen is quite functional for a food blogger like me who’s smartphone accompanies her in the kitchen as well.
The phone comes with a number of inbuilt apps such as What’s Next, which can track and manage apps; Do It Later, a to-do list; Super Note, for taking notes; Zen Link (Share Link, Party Link, PC Link, and Remote Link apps); Asus WebStorage, the company’s cloud storage app (all users get 5GB free for life), and Omlet Chat, a free instant messaging app. For my this post I have used Super Notes to make the post much more interesting for the readers. Like other Zenfone Apps Super Notes is easily adaptable and leisure to work on.
