The battery is a feature that affordable phone buyers value the most. In fact, massive batteries are a privilege exclusive only to affordable price segment as most high-end phones these days don’t have enough room to accommodate this one feature that makes all the difference in the world when it comes to the consumer experience.
Smartphones in 2017 are good enough to handle your entertainment and perhaps even connectivity needs of a moderate usage day, but for days when you actually need to use your phone, say, when you are travelling and can’t afford to lose connectivity and charge, you will invariably have to rely on supplements like power banks. But things aren’t as macabre just yet. There still are phones out there that prioritize battery backup.
One such phone that we came across recently was the Panasonic P55 Max. Every aspect of the handset favors uninterrupted usage and the battery backup is so awesome that you won’t have to ever worry about running out of juice, even on those particular heavy usage days.
So, how does Panasonic P55 manage this genuine miracle of sorts? Well, to start with, Panasonic has housed a whopping 5000mAh battery inside the phone, without compromising on the look and feel of the handset. It’s still reasonably slim and the well-distributed weight ensures that it doesn’t feel bulky.
Secondly, the quad-core processor on the phone is extremely light on battery. Add to that the well optimized Android nougat based software on the phone, and you have got a terrific combo to ameliorate all your battery woes.
Besides, the software also benefits from an efficient battery saver mode that you can depend upon in critical times. With a normal day to day usage, we had to charge Panasonic P55 Max once in three days. And once you have had experienced such luxury, it is just impossible to go back.
Beginning on a full charge, we went through a heavy usage day that involved GPS navigation and 4G LTE on for about 2 hours, attending around 18 calls, watching 2 hours and 35 minutes of videos, regular net surfing, about 2 hours 30 minutes of music playback and had multiple accounts synced. At the end of the day, we could hit bed time with about 49 percent of battery still remaining in the tank.
This wasn’t a one-time accident, extensively pushing the battery to its limits, we could still consistently end each day with 45 to 55 percent battery remaining. Besides, the Panasonic P55 Max has excellent standby times. The battery depleted by only 1 to 2 percent through the entire night when we weren’t using it.
To put a long story short, if battery backup is your number one priority, we have no qualms about recommending Panasonic P55 Max to you. The battery passes with flying colors on both crucial tests – longevity and consistency. Panasonic P55 Max is perhaps the best big battery phone you can buy for under 10,000 INR.
