Battery Life:

With optimized software and 2800 mAh of battery the Walton Primo G7 manages to cut more than a day. The battery drop over the 6 hours of idle time was 5%, which is quite good for the device with the 2800mAh 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.
