Android Lolipop 5.1 powers the phone and a 5-inch, 720p panel lies above the 4000 mAh battery. The ROM observes a 16GB storage capacity, expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card. We think the Vibe P1m should easily satisfy your needs for a long-lasting smartphone and even throw in a decent camera and great performance in the mix.

The Aqua Power HD saw the light of day in February this year and it tells a virtually identical story to the previous entrant from Intex – the Cloud Power Plus. Like the Cloud Power Plus, the Aqua Power HD has a 5-inch 720p IPS panel with a 13MP-5MP camera combo. The difference here is that this phone is a hair faster by packing in a  1.4 GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. An Android v4.4 Kitkat build powers the phone, which is backed by a 4000 mAh battery. The 16 GB of onboard memory is expandable by up to 32GB via a microSD card.

Gionee M2

Gionee-M2

 

The last phone in our roundup and also the most sparingly-specced, the Gionee M2 saw its debut back in February of this year. While it may have inferior specifications compared to the other phones in this comparison, it has one thing going for it: it has the biggest battery among all these phones at 4200 mAh; and while a difference of 200 mAh may not be a lot, it will certainly have a tangible effect. A 5-inch 854 x 480 screen welcomes you with its Android v4.2 Jelly Bean build. A quad-core 1.3 GHz processor resides under it all with 1GB of RAM. Onboard storage gives you 4GB of room to play with that can be expanded by up to 32GB. Cameras here include an 8MP sensor on the back and a 2MP sensor in front. We feel you should pick this one up only if the extra battery life available on the M2 is crucial for you. Have a look at our quick review of the phone here.
