I just remembered this phone is a dual-SIM. I can now use both my regular phone numbers with the same device. I had to carry two phones until now. This is great.

Is one SIM for the Conspiracy to call you?

So, in case you didn't realize yet, I ordered the same phone as PizzaPlanet, and I got mine today.



The iPhone's pixel density has nothing on this.

Thanks for the secret leaks, Mr. Snowden.  Now we know the official opinion on EJ.  XD
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

Can't really tell yet since I've been charging it on and off all day, but it seems alright. If I charge it every night, I don't see it running out easily. Here's a picture if you can figure out something from it:

I've heard you shouldn't charge a battery unless it's low on charge because it reduces the maximum charge the battery can hold.  Makes sense because my phone's battery life sucks and I used to charge it and leave it plugged-in overnight.

Wow, it really nose dives when not plugged in. Use your phone less, Blanko.

I've heard the opposite about Li-ion batteries. You're not meant to leave them plugged in, because heat generation can kill them, but charging them early is supposed to prolong battery life.

I'd obviously use it much less in regular use. I'm just playing around with it for now because new and shiny.

Lithium batteries should be charging while they're undergoing high energy draw, and not charging when there is low draw.

Correct. We got basically the same phone for a fraction of the price. Chinese technology is the best.

What's battery life like?
I'd call it standard. Literally every smartphone I've had has had about the same battery life, and this one is no different.

I definitely miss customizing (sort of).  It is better for my sanity having an iPhone.  Having too many options causes me stress and anxiety.  I was at the point to where I was loading the nightly build of a ROM on my phone and constantly changing layouts to fit my obsessive compulsive needs.  It was affecting my health :(

Li-ion batteries don't suffer from battery memory like ni-ca.
You should charge your phone when you feel like it.  However, avoid using it while charging as this will cause a heat buildup that will damage the battery.
