The front camera is just off-center at the top while the three Android capacitive keys sit below the screen. Button, port and speaker positioning is fairly standard for a mid-range device, with the power and volume keys on the right, USB and 3.5mm audio port at the top and the logo of Walton at the rear.

Battery Life:

With optimized software and 2000 mAh of battery the Walton Primo GF6 manages to cut around a day. The battery drop over the 6 hours of idle time was 8%, which is quite good for the device with the 2000mAh capacity battery. Talking about the screen-on-time it gave me fair amount of 5.5 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.
