Battery Life:

With optimized software and 2300 mAh of battery the Walton Primo EF6+ manages to cut around a day. Talking about the screen-on-time it gave me fair amount of 5 hours, which is more than you could ask for such battery capacity. I was using my SIM card, and all the social accounts on the device while keeping the brightness at a medium level. So, it was more than average usage, which is good.
