  36. Hi

    I noticed this mistake :

    Question- How is Battery Backup on Vibe P1M?

    Answer- Lenovo Vibe P1M features a power packed battery of 5000 mAh which is enough to use the phone for almost 2 days. It also features a Smart power saver toggle button on the left; it can increase the battery performance up to 2 hours or more.

    The Battery for P1m is not 500 mah, that is for Vibe P1.

    Furthermore, my P1m’s battery doesn’t last for more than a day and that too with average usage. All I do is occasional whatsapp, Facebook and some browsing on most days but the battery drains fast. What am I doing wrong? Appreciate any tips or suggestions

    Thanks

    AJ
