I bought this phone only and only for its tall claim of long battery life -- I already owned a Lenovo P2 -- which even after years of continuous operations still gives me more than 2 weeks of stand-by time and more than 2 days' talk time.
But what a pathetic waste of my money this Energizer device was! It does not even last as much as other phones -- even my Samsung Note was giving better battery life with extensive use than this fraud!
With barely any latest features, I compromised on everything just with trusting the long battery-life claim. It barely lasts one day with minimal use (not even blue tooth is turned on, only Wifi and SIM), and I do not use it for watching movies or playing music -- just for very limited WhatsApp (around 100 messages a day in all).
What a disappointment! I will NEVER buy Energizer again.
Device performance is bad, used 9 months No upgrade for Android, camera app not good while shooting videos camera focus is unstable and almost all default apps are slow response you can't. Zoom photos from gallery it will crash app and return to home screen they didn't focus fixing device software issues through software updates.
AnonD-715008, 05 Jan 2018There is a huge time difference between 2014 and 2018. The components of phone has gotten much... more"There is always a reason why Energizer did not go far than 4500 mAh with their first ever smartphone" Really shows what you know. This isn't their first smartphone. Their first smartphone was released way back 2015. Any argument you may have now is invalid without proof.

People spread this for a good issue.
Another android clone, Chinese phones here are offering 8,000-10,000mah battery, what's so cool with 4,500mah?
AnonD-298431, 07 Jan 2018Another useless phone with no band support especially in the US.No quad-band 3G in 2018 is a joke.

Mr. Electronics, 05 Jan 2018If the price is around the $350, this would probably be a very good mid-ranger.There are lots of these P25 cpu phones out there under $200
In the world of electronics devices this Energizer is same like Doopro, Umidigi, ulefone and so on brands. That does not matter that you have a brand name that is good at making something then starts to make phones and will be top of the line most reliable thing ever. It's like Nokia is today and everyone sees the quality in them like in the past. But as they have not been out a year even and for all over the world. Dont really care about India and China market that have different standards then EU. In EU none of Nokia phones have been out over a year so we cant say nothing about long lasting and better then other brands and even brands unknown.
AnonD-441601, 05 Jan 2018For a 350 you get a slow laggy mediatek CPU and GPu definitely not worth the price. But as fa... moreCan people stop spreading lies about slow and laggy mediately SOCs people are making it sound like they can't play games like asphalt 8 without it laggy like crazy or even do basic UI processing
Pretty lame design. I like the carbon fiber but it's probably not real.
Apart from the ugly branding on wallpaper it is fine. Should had made it a bit prettier or appealing.
I'd be interested if they can really prove that they're the better OEM using MediaTek SoC with a more robust and timelier firmware/software + Android base updates.
Also they could have gone bigger with 5000 - 6000mAh batt capacity instead but meh this is still a start so.
it is one of the Chinese phones with Energizer stamped... do they really make phones? and why p25 when you have p23 with 4g support in both sim... ??? p25 is old... its just dumping old junk... rubbish...
new phones should come with new improved soc - chip companies should have a way to recycle old soc's - rearrange / rebuild as per new improved design...
All I can say is nothing unique about this phone but just another clone in looks and basic features where other manufacturers tend to offer at lower prices.....
And f*ck 18:9!!!
Are you serious??? People, Energizer branded phones producing for few years already. At CES 2015 Energizer showcased a prototype line of durable cell phones and smartphones. Look at homepage http://www.energizeyourdevice.com/hardcase.html
The advertisement looks very cartoonish, beside this looks like a alternative to galaxy S8 for those who prefer stock android over touchwiz.
