Battery Life:

The Walton Primo GM2+ comes with 4000 mAh battery which lasted for around 15 hours in our continuous video playback test, which is really impressive for a battery of this capacity. In real-world use, the phone was able to last for up to two days. With heavy usage, we got to nearly a day and a half without needing to use any of the battery saving modes. We were especially impressed with the handset’s ability to latch on to weak cellular as well as Wi-Fi network signals.
