Battery Life:

With optimized software and 2000 mAh of battery the Walton Primo F8 manages to cut around a day. The battery drop over the 6 hours of idle time was 7%, which is quite good for the device with the 2000mAh capacity battery. 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.
