Smartphones With More Than 3000 mAh Battery Under Rs.10, 000

With phones getting bigger in size and packed with more apps, it has become imperative to have a long battery life. Even though technologies have advanced the emphasis still remains on the longevity of the battery.

Over the last few months, the Indian market has been bombarded with swanky new smartphones that claim they offer powerful battery life. Although, you must be thinking that a more powerful battery will come with a hefty price tag. But that’s not true!

We sifted through the lot and found you five smartphones which are packed with features and have a powerful battery under Rs.10, 000.

Honor 4X

Honor 4X is not only a budget-oriented phone but also Huawei’s only online brand model and at Rs. 9999, it packs a punch with a 3000mAh lithium battery.

It holds a massive 5.5-inch phablet sized screen, creating a great stage for apps and games. However, the screen has a maximum resolution 720p, which seems insufficient for such a large screen. Also, it lacks the protection of the Corning Gorilla Glass, which makes it susceptible to scratches and fingerprint stains.  Even though it has a decent 2GB RAM with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, applications tend to lag and the camera shutter is a little slow but it makes up with a 13mp primary camera and 5mp front camera which captures great shots and sharp selfies. For all the selfie fanatics, the Honor 4X has an 8GB internal memory which can be expanded to 32GB with a MicroSD card. If you are looking for a phone that has a massive battery pack and delivers a good performance, the Huawei Honor 4X is a steal for an under Rs. 10000 model.

Coolpad Note 3

The Coolpad Note 3 is the new entrant into the Android market under 10000.  It’s an inexpensive phone which is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, 3G RAM and 3000mAh battery. It is a total steal at Rs. 8,999.

The screen houses 5.5 inches with HD resolution, however, it doesn’t have any protective covering like the Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The MediaTek octa –processor and 13MP with flash and 5MP front camera make up for the lack of protection. Plus, the big battery pack gives the phone an edge over its competitors. You will rarely run out of battery as it can survive all day even with heavy usage.

Meizu M2 Note

The Meizu m2 note not only has the premium appearance but also packs a punch with great hardware specs in the under 10000 range. The phone is armed with Android UI and 3100mAh non-removable battery.  The phone houses a 5.5 inches screen with full HD resolution, which makes it great for viewing from all angles. The screen in equipped with tempered glass to prevent the screen damage and scratches. The 1.3 Hz Octa-processor coupled with a 2GB RAM and Mali T720-MP3 GPU provides great hardware support for gaming enthusiasts.

It comes equipped with the latest Andriod Lollipop along with the brand’s custom Flyme UI, which allows you to customise your phone with the mBack button. Also, the brand has cut corners with the camera specifications. The handset has a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash and a 5MP front camera. The primary camera has an image signal processor for capturing a picture in low-light and 4K video recording support. For all the selfie addicts there is selfie-timer and intelligent beauty mode for the front camera.

The handset also houses 4G connectivity with dual sim support and offers two storage variants 16GB and can be expanded to 128Gv. It’s an amazing buy at Rs. 9999

 

Asus Zenfone Max

The Asus Zenfone Max bears the same uniformity and aesthetic sense of the Asus brand and has the premium look and feel of high-end Asus phones.

It houses a 5.5 inches screen with full HD resolution. However, there is a lack of detail and sharpness, which has been probably done to keep the costs down. The phone hits the bull’s eye with a 5000mAh battery, making it a dream for users with heavy usage. However, the charger doesn’t support the massive battery and it’s best to invest in a fast-charging charger to be able to use the phone to its maximum capacity.

The phone includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt memory and is expandable to 64GB. Plus, it has dual sim connectivity, which supports 4G connectivity in one slot and 3G connectivity in the other. The handset is equipped with Android Lollipop along with the brand’s custom ZenUI.  The ZenFone Max allows more customization and control as compared to other Andriod phones. However, the ZenFone interface is full Asus apps which bloat the phone and the apps need constant updating as they are separate from the main interface to reduce consumption and increase efficiency.

Gionee Marathon M3

5

Gionee has released a number of smartphones which have taken the market by storm and have created a market for themselves. The Marathon M5 keeps in step with market requirements.

The Marathon M3 houses a 5000 battery pack for long hours of usage and extended usability. It has a 5-inch display which is smaller than some of the phones in this category but doesn’t compromise on other areas. Even though the display is not full HD and stands at 720×1280 the resolution is not bad. The company has added the Corning Gorillas glass 3 for protection from scratches and accidental damage.

The handset is equipped with the Android Kitkat and layered with the newest Amigo UI 3.1 which increases user experience and interface efficiency.  The device is armed with a quad-core processor and a decent 1GB RAM. Also, the handset has a modest 8MP primary camera and 2MP front camera. The front is suitable for all the selfie addicts. If you are a heavy user, this is a good option to consider, but you may need to compromise other aspects. But it’s slightly highly priced at Rs. 9,489.

Hence, whatever your usage and need the above list will surely show you the right path. We have told what is there for you, now it’s your turn to make the purchase.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
