ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser – Camera Review

I had received ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE500KL) phone from ASUS almost a month back and I have been using it for a camera review for almost two weeks now.

A message from Kashmir

While chatting with an Instagram friend, currently located in Bangalore but basically from Kashmir, about my Ladakh trip, he happened to share his memories of Kashmir. “Every day I used to go to Dal lake to experience that magical and tantalizing view of the water and the house boats.
