Battery Life:

With optimized software and 2250 mAh of battery the Walton Primo F7s manages to cut around a day. The battery drop over the 4 hours of idle time was 5%, which is quite good for the device with the 2250mAh capacity battery. Talking about the screen-on-time it gave me fair amount of 5.5 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.

Benchmark:

In our GeekBench tests the phone scored 408 (single-core) & 1227 (multi-core)
