Massive Two Day Battery

When a smartphone has so many features then the user has only one problem left i.e. the battery. But with this smartphone there is no need to worry because it comes with a power packed 5000mAh battery. It supports the USB Type – C Charger which is the cherry one the cake. This 5000mAh can run upto 2 days straight. But if somehow it gets discharged then its 18W fast charging’s role comes into play which charges the phone. In the box you will get a 22.5W Charger. 

But here is a little twist because the Dimensity 700 only charges upto 18W then its 22..5 W charger would not be able to charge it with its full capacity. Because of this it will take around 2 hours to charge which makes it slow compared to other smartphones which offer the full charging in one hour only.
