The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. The specifications are not exactly ground-breaking, and that’s basically an entry-level phone, but the main selling point is the large battery and corresponding battery life.
If you need something more powerful with a large battery, Mediatek Helio X25 based PowerMax P600S smartphone will be better, but offers a somewhat shorter battery life (16.5 days in standby) with a 4,500 mAh battery, a higher resolution display (1080×1920), and a less power efficiency processor.
You’ll find the list of Energizer smartphones. some “dumb” phones, and hard cases on the company’s catalog.
Both PowerMax smartphones are sold on Amazon UK for 167.97 GBP ($229) for P550S model and 318.47 GBP ($435 ) and up for P600S.
