2016 has been very exciting journey as far as blogging is concerned. Due to personal reasons, I couldn't travel much and photography was also not happening. This year, I relied a lot on phone cameras to click some of the interesting moments I encountered during routine life. Last year I have been using Honor 5X as my person phone, but I also had an opportunity to try cameras in other phones launched in 2016. That's one of the main reasons of having lot of mobile clicks being published on Travellingcamera blog and especially photographs clicked with Honor 5X phone. 2016 was not only about phone cameras only, but I have tried various other products and services to share my personal views on this blog. There were many such experiences but we have handpicked some of the most memorable ones.
Oppo F1s was another amazing phone which I loved a lot. I loved the looks of this phone and more than that the capabilities of it's front camera which is used for clicking selfies. If someone who thought so seriously about selfies, it's Oppo. I hardly selfie photographs, but after using Oppo, I have started taking selfies more frequently.
Huawei P9 is another star device I used this year. Brilliant cameras with dual lens by Leica on rear side. I don't have words to express my feelings about this phone. DO check out the posts & photographs I have created with this phone. And I am sure you would love to have a phone like this. At the same time I observed that phone has heating issue if used for a longer period of time with 4G on or camera screen active.
UE Boom Bluetooth Speaker : What a brilliant product it is. I want to say only few words for it - brilliant sound quality, compact, good battery life and best companion for travel. You need to try it to believe it.
Asus Zenpad 8.0 was sent to me by Asus as gift and my nephew loved it. And it's his personal device now. He uses this tab everyday and have sim in it. From games to photo editing apps, shopping apps to educational apps, Youtube for his cricket clips and lot more. He is making best use of this tablet and working fine. This tablet had come with audio cover, but that didn't last for a long time, although the sound quality was good.
JKTyre's Ranger Series Vibha has been using JK Tyres for her car and she was invited for an off-roading event in Gurgaon to drive jeep with JKTyre's new series. It was a fun event and it was first time that she drove through some unusual tracks.

Asus Zenfone Max - A phone I gifted to my sister. Good battery, a bit bulky with average camera. At the cost this phone was available in 2016, lot of folks chose it over others. Battery life is certainly a big plus and that why people chose this phone. And better battery means, bulkier phone. So it's personal choice. It's sturdy as well, as my niece has dropped it many times but phone functions properly till date :).
Honor 5C is another phone camera which I tried the most. I planned specific outings with this camera and shot different places in Delhi (India Gate, Lodhi Garden, Connaught Place & Agrasen ki Baoli) and a monsoon trip to Himalayas. Instead of saying more about this phone and it's camera, I would encourage you to check mentioned links.
Genie on Call - This is a service I loved the most, but it's sad to share that company is closed now. And I hope that they come again with more energy and much stronger commitment to serve people and help them handling stuff to save time. When my mom was not well, I had to take lot of leaves and after a point it was getting difficult to compromise work at office. Genie on Call helped me getting medicines from different parts of NCR at very nominal cost.
I have been active user of Ola and Uber this year, and not sticking to Uber only. There is lot more to share on this, as it really changed the way I used to commute within the city and the kind of freedom these services provide. Stay tuned for something interesting on this topic and some tips to save with Ola and Uber.
Last but not the least, I loved the part when I had to share my experience of 5X phone camera with NDTV CellGURU. I have appeared a few times on TV, but this one was certainly very special.
