Infinix Zero 4 – The smartphone that can #ShakeItUp 

I’ve been obsessed with photography since long. From dad’s 110 camera to my first Fuji camera and now cell phones, clicking has become a habit. Before the Revolution of smartphones I use to be obsessed with phones that have great cameras. From Nokia to Sony, I try to get my hands on the best camera phones. My last phone before the smartphone era was a killer camera phone. Can you guess which one? Anyway, what I still look forward to in a smartphone is definitely the best camera & a user friendly interface with decent battery life. Who wants to charge their phones all day long Han!!

The search comes to an end when I came across the new Infinix Zero 4 smartphone. I was invited to get the first hand experience of this sleek handset to let you guys know how it actually performs.

I’ll need be boring you with the specs list of the set as you can check them out on Yayvo where it is available to buy.

The best in Infinix Zero 4:

Infinix Zero 4 is a full metal body, 5.5 inch smartphone that looks very smart. The phone comes in a black box.

Camera:

First of all the phone comes with a unique OIS(optical image stabilization) feature which I have never experienced before. It delivers what it promises. #ShakeItUp & click to get a picture that’s not blurry. Often happens when you take a selfie or a picture that phone tends to tilt or slip. This one gave impressive results.16MP AF rear camera of Infinix Zero 4 is just mind blowing while 8MP Selfie camera takes panoramic selfies with precision. Pro model of Zero 4 comes with 20MP camera btw.

Finger Print Sensor:

Zero 4 has a finger print sensor on the back of the phone just under the camera. It will record & save your finger print & here you go to use the Most convenient one touch phone unlock method. img-20161118-wa0055.jpg

Battery life:

3200mAh fast charge battery makes life easy. You don’t have to keep looking for charging ports where ever you go.

Memory:

32Gb Internal storage with 3GB RAM & expandable memory card option is what makes Zero 4 the best bet within the price range that it comes.

Price:

All these high end features of Octa core processor, latest Android version, a unique camera, promising battery life with huge internal storage & RAM , infinix Zero 4 comes unbelievably under 25K price bracket.

Additional features that I spotted:

With Zero 4 you can take screenshots in a video mode as it has a built in screen recorder. There are motivational quotes on screen lock. Every time you open your phone you’ll get inspired. Interface is pretty smooth and corning gorilla glass is a plus too. SD card jacket is separate from dual SIM jacket who has makes it actually a dual SIM phone with expandable memory(My current phone of the same price claims to be dual SIM one but lacks SD card jacket. So if I have to use memory expansion, I need to ditch other SIM)

Zero 4 has a pretty in pink color too which you seldom find in high end smartphones. Gold & whites are too mainstream lol.

Overall it is a value for money phone which delivers exactly what it promises. Hope it proves to be the best of infinix in a longer run.

#OyeKuchKarGuzar – From city wars to Pakistan’s first online film

The best of the banter that Pakistani Twitter has ever seen happened during the first edition of PSL. City wars always bring the best of pun and fun from twitteratis. Although the second edition of PSL is yet to begin but the city wars have already made their way to social media courtesy Mangobaaz’s celebrity city roast video featuring Ushna Shah, Ali Safina & Uzair Jaswal. What followed the video is just madness of Karachi vs Lahore vs Islamabad and an unforgettable trend of #OyeKuchKarGuzar.

Must say that Mangobazz Tussi barray mazaqi te chalak ho. Who knew that this is where the journey towards Pakistan’s first online movie begins? Take a bow you Mangobaaz.

The way people reacted to the roast video is beyond any promotional stunt or advertising which makes it such fun. With people taking sides of the celebrities & praising how they’ve defended their cities makes #OyeKuchKarGuzar the most happening online engagement activity. Just look at the master blaster of banter.

The uniqueness, the differences, the love among us all is due to Pakistan which we absolutely love. Like every city war which ends when someone points out that, “In the end we all are Pakistanis and must love & respect our cities and people”, City roast video brings the best out of us and in the end what we are getting is a first for Pakistan, for us all. First ever online movie. No Torrents required.

#OyeKuchKarGuzar is going to be Pakistan’s first online movie which will be released on Youtube by Djuice Pakistan.Since the launch of Youtube Pakistan and the option of monetizing content, Djuice is the first brand to step up their digital game. Being a youth centric brand they are exploring the opportunities on 3rd most visited website of the world. The popularity of 3G and 4G, ever so expanding digital lifestyle through smartphones makes the medium much more accessible.

The trailer clearly depicts that the youth wants to take the plunge and want to achieve something in their lives. The most exciting thing about watching #OyeKuchKarGuzar movie online will be not paying for the tickets and no guilt of piracy yet you gotta experience fresh content exclusively released on digital front. This is going to be a treat for Movie lovers.

What are you waiting for? Oh acha! Movie ki release ka wait horaha hai. Won’t tell you when it is happening. Go subscribe to Djuice Pakistan’s Youtube channel and sit back. get your popcorns and snack stock ready while #OyekuchKarguzar happens.

WomenX Pakistan session “THE BRAND OF YOU” with Aurélie Salvaire

​WomenX Pakistan held a session with Aurelie Salvaire, a French social impact entrepreneur, titled THE BRAND OF YOU, at PSTD. The session highlighted the need for being a brand yourself and selling yourself, being a woman, to the right people. Women are usually great at selling everything and everyone but themselves, they usually think socially it is not acceptable to promote them publically. The session talked about these challenges that hold us back to promote the brand ‘YOU’ and to project with confidence that this is who we really are. 

Aurelie started the session by discussing with the audience her childhood stories and the sweet messages in them, because these are the experiences that have influenced her life – in a good as well as bad way. The good ones shine, while the bad ones developed fear in her. Aurelie said,

“These fears make us develop different armours – blaming others, numbing ourselves with toxics, aggression etc. These armours prevent us from growing.” She further added, “There is a crack in everything, that’s where the light comes in”- the idea for imperfection and not giving up is the way to live. 

Aurelie emphasized on this quote by Buddha, the MIND is everything you think you BECOME. To keep your mind in place meditate; add some nice practices to your bed time, like write a gratitude journal every night. Pay gratitude visits to people you love and don’t get time to express, write letters or just call them to tell them that you love them. 

The workshop helped the WOMENX participants figure out their WHY in order to pitch their project more efficiently and present themselves in a more genuine and original way during networking sessions.

About first ever #OriflameBloggersMeetup and Product Review

The invite of first ever Oriflame Pakistan’s Bloggers meetup came in as a sweet surprise to me because I haven’t seen them very active on social media platforms before. In fact their direct selling method is the one which keeps you wondering about them. Few of my relatives & friends  are already working with Oriflame as their consultants and keep informing me about the new offers & products. So, it is a kind of household name to us. 

The products need no fake praises because everyone knows that they’re worth every penny. Also, the ingredients are cruelty free & natural, making their skin care range one of the best out there. But that wasn’t the goal of this unique bloggers meetup. I was excited about going there to actually know what makes them go active on social media. Glad that I went and met Oriflame Pakistan’s enthusiastic team with some amazing fellow bloggers. It was one of the best meetups that I have been to. 

We were greeted by Fahad, Sufyan & Gul afshan at the meetup as we’re like their family. It was all about the vision behind Oriflame Sweden’s birth & then how it spreads globally. Oriflame Sweden aims to fulfill dreams of their employees(basically the resellers, whom they call consultants and managers). 

Oriflame Sweden is almost 50 years old & one of world’s few certified direct selling companies,  providing employment opportunities to people from the comfort of their homes while having no compromise on the quality of their products. In fact they are proud of the way they operate. 

In past 8 years Oriflame Pakistan has managed to become a family of 12000 consultants Countrywide. As per standard procedure Oriflame products came in catalog offers to their respective consultants for buyers. You’ll get them sometimes with a discount too when there is a promotion going on. The key is to keep an eye on offers. 

Product review- Oriflame Products that I’ve tried so far:

I’ve used Oriflame’s 5in1 facial foam, Tea tree based blemish corrector, The ONE spa care lip balm, Giordani Gold bronzing pearls(In Natural peach shade this bronzer is a bomb) and eye liner way before this meetup happened. This was the first time that I’ve tried their complete makeup range and skin creams. The goody bag (even the invite) was surprisingly a generous one with lots of winter essentials. 

I’ve used their The ONE illuskin foundation in Ivory shade. It has a very light, non greasy formula that spreads evenly on your face giving medium coverage. Somewhat similar to a BB cream or fit me foundation. With a pressed powder  you can get a perfect base for a formal look or you can easily carry it without powder for everyday look. The foundation has SPF 20 protection & the pump dispenser comes with a twist n lock head. That’s a plus. 

The oh so heavy jar of Milk & Honey gold nourishing hand & body cream is my favorite product these days. The cream is quite pasty n thick, easily manageable, not an oily one & gives a softer hydrated feel. O Gosh it makes your skin smell like just out of a dessert bar. Perfect winter companion. 

Pure color Lipsticks didn’t impress me with their pigmentation & packaging. They are pretty glossy & have low staying power. 

The ONE lipsticks both matte & glossy are decent. I got Cranberry blush shade of The ONE lipstick & coral shade in matte. Both packaging & pigmentation is good for these two shades(the stain of matte lipstick stays way longer than you actually want). The Giordano range of lipsticks felt like royalty. They were so moisturizing & luxurious. 

Feet-up foot cream is on trial these days & I’ll review it after using for atleast 2 weeks but so far so good. There are lots of other items in the goody bag that I’ll be trying soon to let you all know what’s worth buying from Oriflame Pakistan. 

PS: Go through Oriflame’s love Natural skin care range as it is my favorite one so far. You’ll love it because of the tea tree benefits. 

It is good to see Oriflame Pakistan growing at a pace in Pakistan. I hope they continue to strive for the best in future too. You can check Oriflame Pakistan’s website to explore their products or ask from any of their consultants near you.
