The last few months have seen an increasing focus on battery size, in a bid to answer the growing demand for devices that won't shut down on you before you go to bed every night. Apart from many mid-range and high-end phones offering batteries with capacities in excess of 3000mAh, smartphones such as the Gionee Marathon M5 (Review | Pictures) and Lenovo Vibe P1 (Review | Pictures) have gone above and beyond the norms with 6020mAh and 4900mAh batteries respectively.

    Panchakshari Veeregowda (Dec 31, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    I purchased zenfone max from With in one month of its purchase the phone started to hang more frequently. When I took it to the customer service they refused to give free service. Its SIM slot also got damaged before delivery. I was using only one sim slot. Exactly after one year the motherboard crashed. They are asking 7000rs for servicing. Utter waste mobile. Don't loose your hard earned money. Don't buy this phone.

    Seems to be very good one for normal user who want heavy battery but waiting since august. No commitment event after 4 months, this give very bad impression 'ÁSUS'. My phone is more than 2 years old and planning to buy new one with heavy batter. I may purchase lenovo or Gionee.
