Smartphones with More Than 3500 mAh Battery Under 12500

Gionee Marathon M3 Review and Specifications

A smartphone with weak battery power is simply useless, despite great features and installed many applications. Smartphone with big battery power is always needed. In this quick review article, we have listed some of recently launched smartphone with more than 3500 mAh battery under the price band of 12500 rupees.

Celkon Millennia Epic Q550

Celkon is a new smartphone brand with good popularity in South India. Since the epic start of the brand, its product delivery has improved significantly. The Celkon India no longer makes a basic mobile phone rather it is credited with some of unique launch in the last 6 months. The Millennia Epic Q550 is a phablet with good value for money in terms of feature and screen size it offers.

First we are going list the sales box content. The sales box includes two pin compact travel adaptor, decent quality earphone with flat cable pair, screen guard, standard USB cable, and a piece of cloth for the cleaning of the screen. I was expecting to have a flip cover inside the box.

Celkon Millennia Epic Q550

This is a 5.5 inches screen size phablet with HD quality and 720P resolution. The display is built-in to OGS (one glass solution) which translates in the light weight construction while display remains crisp and finger touch seems close to pixels.

The Epic Q550 bears a uni-body design with soft and glossy back panel yet not slippery. In terms of designing, it looks premium and very attractive as well. It got good attention while I put it on launch table in a restaurant. It is a dual SIM gadget wherein each SIM placed at one side of the phone. Volume rocker and wake up button on the right edge and a SD card slot is at the left edge just underneath of the SIM trey. Volume rocker and wake button are placed slightly lower than what we see in general. That makes it a comfortable smartphone having single hand operation.

The Epic S550 features IPS LCD panel with HD resolution in OGS solution. Display is quite impressive and has rich colours, good viewing angles, deep detailing and closure view of display depth is really impressive. Also, consuming videos with display is a pleasant experience.

Celkon has done no funny execution in terms of running some customized skin over the stock Android. It runs on stock Android Kitkat 4.4.2 with no funny customization in basic operation. The Q550 dons a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and 1 GB RAM and a Mali 400 GPU as well. At the AnTuTU benchmarks, it has a decent score of 18496. Moderate gaming is a fun, but rich graphic games such as Modern combat 5 and other gets lag and significant amount of frame drop. Also, performance of Graphic processing unit is good. Out of 1GB RAM, 580 MB is for the end user. Out of 16 GB hosted memory, 13 GB is for user and not to forget, memory expansion supports upto 64GB. The device supports OTG so you don’t need data transfer to play some multimedia content from a third party source.

The Epic Q550 has an inbuilt 3500 mAh battery, which lasts for two days on normal usages. I am not big fan of in-built battery feature, but then having just 7.9 mm of thick and premium look, I hold no complain for it.

Multimedia experience is not good in terms of audio play back. Though it features large speaker, place bottom of the back panel with dual precision this is to avoid speaker muffling in case you place it on flat surface. Speaker is not loud and you need to use supplied earphone, which is a decent quality piece.

The grand phablet is packed with a 8 MP rear shooter and a 2 MP front facing shooter. Both camera performance exceeded my expectation and captured some brilliant shots while good amount of light was available. Indoor or low light photography quality is just close to any other Indian smartphone brand.

Good performance, decent looks, high capacity memory space, good camera lens and pure android experience makes it a true choice at the selling price of 10000 rupees. This Epic Q550 changed my perception about the Celkon brand.

Intex Aqua Power

Indian smartphone brand Intex has done a decent job in making of a battery backup oriented smartphone phone. The aqua power comes with huge battery back-up yet it is not heavy and has just a 7.9 mm of thickness.

The Aqua Power is indeed a powerful smartphone in terms of long lasting battery. For me, it lasted for two and half day while I was involved with some out of box fun to check its overall quality. In case of just basic usages, it might show up to three days of life on a single charge. Intex has given a 2.5A really tough and ultra fast charger. According to the brand, a full charge cycle is completed in maximum three hours of time.

Intex Aqua Power

The gadget is packed up in a decent quality plastic body. Both SIM slots and SD tray are placed under the back panel, but you can’t take off battery as it is in-built. This is a slim smartphone and overall built quality is just above average. Its back is not attracted to fingerprint magnet bears glossy matte finish.

The Aqua power dons a Octa core processor where each core has a clock speed of 1.2 GHz. Processor is supported by 1 GB RAM and Mali 450 GPU. There is 8 GB of main memory with expansion supported up to 32 GB. The end user gets 400 MB RAM and 5 GB of main memory after pre-installed consumption. We had tried few light and medium range games such as Temple Run 2 for its gaming response. In terms of processing, it is a good device executes user instruction without any lag and remains quite smooth performance any time.

The Aqua power runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and Intex custom design over it. I seriously don’t like the idea of custom UI that is also in such cheap execution. Intex is not Samsung or Sony or LG. Running custom UI doesn’t have much role to play while it comes to basic operation and navigation within the phone. There is a Matri Bhasha application, which brings support of 21 official Indian languages to the phone. In the message typing, you can draft a message in 21 supported languages. Unfortunately there is no predicted text support in the message control panel.

The smartphone sports a 5 inches screen with 480P resolution display. Its display glass is in cheap quality and has finger print magnet tendency. Display quality is just average. The Aqua power has a display because it can’t sell a phone without a display.

It lists really poor rear camera and pathetic front facing 2 MP lens. There is OTG supports and lists 4 sensors, Bluetooth, WI-Fi, GPS, FM Radio and a flash light application in the connectivity hood.

Still, I would prefer this smartphone for its long lasting 4000 mAh battery power at the current selling price of just 7000 rupees.

Spice Stellar 518

The Spice mobile is one of the four Indian smartphone brands, which have showing excellent growth in last two years. This is the second smartphone from the Spice India, which I am having a look at. Here, we are considering smartphone that renders huge battery backup by having a higher mAh battery packing. The Stellar 518 comes with a monster battery power of 4000 mAh. The device has long lasting battery, which is extended up to 3 days while usages are limited to basic excluding gaming.

It features a 5 inches 480P resolution screen with responsive touch panel and good processing speed. There isn’t funny execution from the brand and basic work gets done without being sluggish.

We didn’t experience any lag while playing of Temple run 2 and bubble shooter. You can play modern combat 5, but in the lower end setting. Though we haven’t tied Asphalt 8 Airborne, but I am sure the Stellar 518 isn’t bound to execute such heavy and graphic loaded game. It is backed up 1 GB RAM, Mali 400 GPU and 8GB of main memory which can be expanded upto 32 GB. The end user has a share of 438 MB RAM space and 5.69 GB of main memory for app installation and multimedia gallery creation.

Spice Stellar 518

The 8MP rear camera and 1.3 MB front facing camera is just better than the Intex Aqua Power and does satisfactory job while good amount of light is available. This is a limit of camera as the indoor shooting remains below average, despite a single LED flash placed at the back alongside the rear shooter.

The sales box contains a flip cover, fast charger and USB cable beside the Stellar 518 smartphone. In terms of value for money and product quality, I would consider the Stellar 518 over the Intex aqua power. I like the smartphone because it is a perfect combination of good of everything. You don’t need to spend 500 rupees extra on a flip cover. Display has a standard size of 5 inches with good resolution, which consumes less battery than a HD display. This could be a great buy at the current price of 7500 rupees.

Gionee Marathon M3

The Marathon M3 is a third installment of Chinese brand Gionee. I was expecting it to be a heavy gadget, but it is not much heavy smartphone with just 180 gram of weight and 10.4 mm in thickness. You need at least a week to become use to with it.

In terms of basic construction, it is pretty solid craft, made of quality plastic shell. There is two parallel line of crome finished wire covers the top and the bottom panel of the device. With matte finish at the back, it renders good grip while holding in hand. Its edge are rounded and overall built pretty smooth yet not slippery. Rear camera, LED flash and the second mike for noise cancellation is placed at the back. It is dual SIM compatible and feature one normal and one mini SIM slot alongside a SD card slot under the back panel.

The Marathon smartphone is packed with a 5000 mAh battery power, which is highest in a smartphone at present, if I am not wrong. As far as back up on a single charge is concern, we got almost three and half day of activity on normal usages. There is no power saving application to optimize smartphone to extend battery backup. Battery is kind of in-built; I mean, the end user is not allowed to extract it. In case of any hardware malfunction, authorized service centre engineer should un-screw and take out battery for access.

Gionee Marathon M3

The M3 sports a 5 inches IPS LCD display with 720P resolution and good viewing angles. Colour production, brightness and depth are impressive. 294 Pixel per inches is the pixel density score in the display. It runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and there is no update on Android Lollipop roll out from the brand.

Gionee uses its own custom UI over the OS. For me, it is a big disappointment. And, there is reason for that. Gionee’s custom UI is executed has performance glitch and there is noticeable lag during navigation. Custom UI oriented application consumes most of RAM space and the end user left with just 200 MB to 250 MB RAM power. There is one rocket icon under the notification drop down, which clears RAM to extend upto 400 MB free space. The smartphone with custom UI consume 60% of RAM power. At the AnTuTU Benchmark, it scores 17483, which is decent considering huge battery power at the current price of 12500/-

The smartphone comes with a 8 MP rear camera with HD recording and a 1.3 MP front facing is also there for selfie and supported network 3G video calling. Camera performance is just above average. UC browser, anti-virus, Hot Knot share, Facebook, twitter are some preinstalled applications.
