One of the biggest issue with entry-level smartphones is its ultra-low battery capacity. With 4G and VoLTE usage these small batteries usually last only half a day of usage. Countering that, Indian mobile vendor Micromax has unveiled its newest android smartphone under the Bharat series, the Bharat 5 which packs a big battery at its back.
The main USP of the Micromax Bharat 5 is its 5000mAh battery capacity, which company claims to offer 500 hours on standby. Other features of the mobile include HD display, 5-megapixel front and back camera, expandable storage option and 4G VoLTE support.
The company has however chosen the offline route to sell the smartphone. You could buy the Bharat 5 from offline retail stores across India under a price tag of Rs 5,555. The company has partnered with Indian telco Vodafone India to offer buyers additional 10GB of data for five months on a recharge of 1GB data plan.
