This is a CRB Tech Reviews about cheap phones and its battery. For many of us, the most essential attribute of our cellphone is its battery power. After all, what's the use of technology features if your cellphone fights in the middle of something important?
More processer cores and digicam mega pixels are excellent, but unless you're planning on investing in - and regularly asking for - battery power packs, you might want to pay some attention to battery power too. There are some new mobile phones that really incorporate this concept, such as the Wickedleak Wammy Powerhouse 4, with a 5,330mAh battery power, which released a few weeks ago.
The Lava Eye Energy 20 also released just before that, and comes with what is possibly the biggest battery power in the sub-Rs. 6,000 range. We haven't analyzed those two yet, but if you want a cellphone with excellent battery power, there are plenty of other choices we've already tested.
Here are our best performing mobile phones with the best battery power across different cost bands.
The Htc Asha 502 is probably the best cellphone you'll get under Rs. 5,000 and its 1010mAh battery power keeps going for really lengthy. It isn't subject to taxes by high-end components; it has only a 3-inch 240x320 show and just 64MB of RAM, but its design is excellent and if you're looking for a basic system then this is not a bad option.
Under Rs. 5,000
you could also check out the Maxx Mobile MX200 (Review). We can't genuinely suggest that cellphone as anyone's primary system, since the only advantage of it is its 5200mAh battery power. You could think of this cellphone as a portable battery power that lets you call people.
Under Rs. 10,000
There are more choices in this cost bracket, but in the end, we'd suggest the Lava Eye Energy 60 (Review | Pictures), which you can get for just under Rs. 9,000. This 5-inch cellphone has a large 4,000mAh battery power that keeps it operating for a lengthy period. The 720x1280 show, powered by a 1.3GHz processer alongside 1GB RAM is nothing special, but the performance is not bad, and the software loaded on it is relatively free of bloat. The digicam could be better, but again, we're not stressing at this cost range.
If you want to spend a little less and are willing to compromise on the digicam as well as the Android app environment, then the Windows Phone-based Htc Lumia 630 Dual SIM (Review | Pictures) is an alternative. It costs less than Rs. 7,000, and has excellent construction. Its relatively small 1830mAh battery power nonetheless kept the cellphone operating for 11 hours in our non-stop video play-back test. Thus our CRB Tech reviews have been completed.
