Style File + Phicomm | Break of dawn

The way I see it, mornings set the tone for the rest of your twenty-four hours so it's always a good idea to start them well. While my attempts at rising early may not always be successful; my mornings begin with my alarm buzzing and repeatedly hitting snooze until it is absolutely crucial to wake up. Besides my bedside is my night cream, fluffy slippers and since I'm fairly technologically savvy, my smartphone as well. After being introduced to Phicomm's latest smartphone, the Passion 660, I decided to take her along for a spin with my morning routine.

Somewhere in between an adrenaline rushed workout and a nutritious breakfast, I settle down to skim the news headlines on the Passion 660's massive 5 inch screen; whose matte rectangular body with chrome edges fit comfortably within my palm. Post that, I jump right into my inbox and the Octa Core processor makes this a breeze. Switching between responding to mails and ticking off tasks from my memo can be completed swiftly, without any kind of lag.

I've been an Android girl ever since I held a smartphone so the Passion 660's custom user interface supported by KitKat feels like home to me. It's easy to navigate between apps, to pull down my notifications as well as assign new widgets to my home screen. Plus, look at that full HD screen! The colours are bright and true to life while the display is crisp as a fresh pie crust.

Then begins the next step of my day - stepping out. As evidenced previously, a good pair of sneakers always wins my heart. So throwing on a jacket with my striped dress and making my bed head as groomed as possible, today I'm stepping out with a chic, athleisure flair.

The first stop of the day is a midday shoot with plenty of sunny skies that I'm savoring before the monsoons appear in full swing. A call in the midst of it all sure brings a smile to my face, especially since the sound quality of the Passion 660 triumphed over the sounds of breeze outdoors.

The sun's playing peekaboo so while waiting for a peek of good light, I'm checking out my Twitter and Facebook pages. I might as well respond to comments and upload a picture of two from my gallery. With 16 GB of internal memory, the storage space is plenty and can easily store a tonne of apps and music. Even if you tend to hoard up on images and TV shows because you feel like its a necessity to have on your phone *this sounds a lot like me!*; the Passion 660 can expand its memory upto 64 GB with a microSD card, which you can pretty much fit the whole universe in.

It's time to wind down a manic morning with lunch but not before I Instagram it! A selfie-queen will appreciate the 5 megapixel front camera that works smoothly, especially in natural light. While I get down to finding the ideal spot that makes our pizza and cocktails look even more delectable, the efficient 13 megapixel back camera and modes such as burst and anti-shake make my impromptu photo session even easier. As I finally settle down with a slice, the wave gesturing allows me to glimpse through my pictures without actually touching the phone, which makes the process quite an enjoyable one.

Even after an ample amount of browsing, clicking and gaming; the battery lasts me all day long. At the fantastic price of INR 10,999, the Passion 660 from Phicomm is a beast of a smartphone, with a beauty of a design. It packs powerful specifications with clean design at an unbeatable price so make sure you keep your eyes out for this one, I'm certain it will be the right choice for you.
