If your favourite smartphone manufacturer does not have a phone with a 4,000 mAh battery at this time, they have not seen the light. You see, everyone else is falling head over heels to make sure that they are not left behind in this new trend.
From Gionee, Karbonn, Intex, THL, Lava, Infinix, Symentium (never heard of those?), Micromax and Innjoo to the bigger boys like Acer, ASUS, Samsung, Lenovo, and Huawei, the bug has spread like an apocalyptic virus. Every smartphone brand has one product whose USP (unique selling point) is long battery life – and that product has a 4,000 mAh battery in it.
I wonder why that exact rating. I mean, it would be a bit interesting if one brand put in 4,200 mAh, and another 4,350 mAh, and so on and so forth. But no, the various dibia, babalawo or whatever the medicine man in their area is called, that they consult has warned them that anything apart from a 4,000 mAh battery won’t work. No matter the display size and processor of the phones, this is the battery capacity in each of them. I tell you, this jazz is extremely strong.
