Arjun Vajpai has done the impossible again – 3700 kms East to West on a single charge of the Samsung Galaxy M30s – Times of India

How early would you wake up to watch the sunrise in its full glory? Professional mountaineer, Arjun Vajpai didn’t sleep the entire night.

He rustled through the forest, lit up some bonfires, and climbed up a valley – all of this for the #GoMonster on one charge challenge! Ever since Arjun, the Youngest Indian to climb Mt. Everest in 2010, and the youngest in the world to climb 6x8000m peaks (2018) courageously set out to test the all new Samsung Galaxy M30s’ massive 6000 mAh battery, all eyes were hooked on this brave boy who has chased several intimidating peaks in the past.

Will he be able to recreate Amit Sadh’s ultimate triumph of battery over time?

Well, after TV’s beloved actor Amit Sadh completed the journey from Leh to Hanle, spanning over two days, on a single charge of Samsung Galaxy M30s, he challenged Arjun Vajpai to up the ante and travel from the East of India to the West. Which means, Arjun had to witness the sunrise in the Easternmost part of the country and catch the sunset in the West – a 3700 km stretch – on one charge! And Arjun accepted the dare with panache.

Wow, Dong valley in Arunachal to Kutch, Gujarat! That’s an extensive distance and unlike Amit, Arjun won’t have his own conveyance but will have to rely on public transport through his expedition. Enthralled, we decided to shadow this epic journey and unearth a credible review of the Samsung Galaxy M30s for the woke souls who wish to upgrade their smartphone game like never before. After all, it will be the largest smartphone battery in the market after the handset’s launch on the 18th of September, 2019. Oh, did we marvel at how jazzy-looking Samsung Galaxy M30s kit that is?

But first, here’s a mesmerising sunrise from the Eastern heartland of India – the Dong Valley. Arjun’s phone was 97% charged here.

Hyperlapse videos are fun to watch and incredibly difficult to shoot. But look at the amazing result of Samsung Galaxy M30s’ 48 MP triple rear camera weaving magic with super-zoom, multi-axis clips of the expanse. Dong is the easternmost village in India accessible by car, at an altitude of 1240 metres, and placed at a strategic location of tri-junction of three countries. Situated at the confluence of Lohit and Sati rivers, Dong is said to receive the first sun rays in India. This also makes it detached and difficult to access from other parts of the state and the country.

Thus began Arjun’s uphill journey toward the far opposite end. A quick route check indicated that Arjun had to cross a valley on foot and gushing rivers over swaying bridges, to get to the closest airport from Dong is at Dibrugarh, Assam. He had to hitch a ride with a few locals to cover a journey that would take almost 10 hours of his time. And that’s only the first leg of his journey – would your phone battery last even that duration?

His first stop was the world’s largest bamboo Buddha statue, Lubhamuni, consecrated at Noi-Cheynam, opposite the Golden Pagoda. Opposite the golden pagoda is housed a beautiful gilded statue of Buddha which forms the backdrop of Arjun’s fun selfies.

It is at the end of the day that Arjun realises that he had only covered 260 kms and the battery of his phone needed to be saved. With 3400 kms still to go, how else could he beat time and complete the challenge? The next morning, unable to get local cabs to take him to Dibrugarh, Arjun had to wait for a small bus to serve his purpose. He had 80% battery charge on his phone and was still in the North East, close to missing his flight.

Day 2
By this time, we had our breath stuck in our chests because we wanted Arjun to hurry up. Time was running fast and battery was draining faster. But finally, the blue-eyed boy of mountaineering had managed to catch his flight from Dibrugarh to Ahmedabad via Kolkata.

Three cheers for Arjun to finally land in Ahmedabad after a delayed flight – and going by the food pictures, we are sure he has his priorities set. Well, he still had a long way to go to witness the sunset by the Arabian Sea. The phone’s battery was on 30% while his flight was in the air.Thank god for its Infinity-U display, the Samsung Galaxy M30s that is a breath of fresh air in this crowded smartphone space. The screen on the device runs from edge to edge and gave Arjun a surreal viewing experience that made his journey less cumbersome. Also, with sAMOLED display,
Arjun’s Samsung Galaxy M30s consumed less power, gave high contrast ratio and quickly adapted to external lighting – which was low in the train.

But did the battery last through the rail ride? Let’s find out:

Guess it did! From 1240 mtr altitude to 110 mtr, from needing a bonfire to fighting the sweltering heat, from lush green hills to an arid desert – Arjun’s three day #GoMonster chase had flipped to the extreme opposite. He was yet to brave a road trip to capture the last sunset and a
Chhagda (local rickshaw) saved his day. With the sky and the phone’s battery turning red, Arjun made it to the Arabian Sea to behold the last sunset of the country.

Such an overwhelming feeling, right guys? While tracing this #GoMonster chase, we found ourselves silently rooting for Arjun to reach the ‘summit’ of this monstrous task. And why just the battery, a Herculean, octa-core Exynos processor has helped the phone carry out more number of tasks – simultaneously and faster.

Honestly, the Samsung Galaxy M30s has been no less than a companion through this hair-raising, gruelling but much-worthy odyssey that has taught us one very important thing – that smartphones aren’t just meant to be communication tools – they need to be the auxiliaries that can keep up with your personality. Millennials are go-getters who aren’t working just to get a paycheck, but to make a difference. And to keep up with their endeavours, their gadgets need to be equally versatile. Understanding these personality traits, Samsung is adding its game-changer handset – the Samsung Galaxy M30s to its coveted M series. It is set to make its India debut this week with a massive 6,000mAh battery and AI-enabled triple rear camera setup and is expected to be priced between Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000. You can lay your hands over the monster machine on
Amazon or
