Battery Life:

With optimized software and 4000 mAh of battery the Walton Primo S6 manages to cut around 2 days. The battery drop over the 7 hours of idle time was just 3%, which is quite good for the device with the 4000mAh capacity battery. Talking about the screen-on-time it gave me fair amount of 9 hours approx, 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.
If you do find yourself outside without a powerbank, the Walton Primo S6 does have the extremely useful Extreme Mode feature that can extend your phone’s life significantly and it will allow you to run your device for few hours with only 10% charge in the battery.
