Key features of Walton Primo RM4
Design and Display
Walton Primo RM4 comes with a big display and a massive battery that would definitely bestow huge user-benefits, but it also makes this phone bulky. On the backside, you would find the triple rear camera setup and a fingerprint sensor. The design of camera housing represents the classic Walton design.
The power button and volume rocker lie on the right side. The triple-slot SIM card tray is placed on the left side that can accommodate a dual SIM card and an external memory card. On the top edge, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The bottom edge bears a micro USB charging port, speaker grill, and primary microphone.
Walton Primo RM4 has a 6.5-inch IPS INCELL capacitive touch screen display featuring 2.5D glass. The resolution of this display is about 1600 by 720 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. This HD plus display and the large screen would be very helpful for attaining virtual classes, meetings, or seminars.
The chin area is wide which is acceptable in this budget range. The touch response performs well. Though the display’s color vibrancy seems a bit washed out, its viewing angles are pleasant. Under the direct sunlight, you may struggle a bit to see the contents on the display of this Smartphone. But overall, the display performs fine.
Hardware and Performance
Walton Primo RM4 is equipped with an octa-core processor featuring Cortex architecture A53 with the utmost clock speed of 1.8GHz. The CPU carries the MediaTek Helio A25 12nm SoC. In the graphic unit, RM4 is provided with the POWERVR Rogue GE 8320 GPU.
In this phone, you will get 4GB of RAM with 64 GB of eMMC internal storage capacity. You can extend the memory up to 256 GB by inserting a memory card. Considering the budget, Walton has provided a good configuration in its Primo RM4 phone. Now let’s turn to its performance.
The processor is good for regular work and multi-tasking. In this latest Primo phone, Walton offers the Android 10 OS. You may experience some stuttering while opening the heavy app or software. It can perform smoothly if you apply lighter apps and software. RM4 delivers average audio quality and loudspeaker performance. The fingerprint sensor may take some time to read and open the phone.
You may know that Helio A25 is an entry-level ARM chipset that is not efficient for heavy-duty gaming like PUBG, COD, etc. But don’t worry! The powerful 4GB RAM capacity strengthens the performance of the processor in this phone. You can comfortably play 2D games on this Primo RM4 Smartphone.
Walton Primo RM4 presents a triple rear camera (13MP + 5MP + Depth cam) setup with an 8MP front camera. We have seen the same camera configuration in the ancestor H9 Primo phone which came with a lower price tag.
Its 13MP f/2.0 prime rear camera is built with the SONY sensor. Under a proper daylight situation, you can capture some good photos. But the sharpness and color punches may seem a bit artificial. The 5MP ultra-wide sensor offers average performance considering the budget. But the performance of its 0.3MP depth sensor is not satisfactory.
On the front side, RM4 has an 8MP f/2.2 camera built with the SONY sensor. The captured images may display color saturation, and some of the highlighted areas may be washed out by light, but the skin tone of the subjects seems close to natural. Applying some photographic skills, you can capture satisfactory photos.
Walton Primo RM4 is blessed with a massive battery of 5950mAh. If you use moderately, it can give around 2 days of back up. According to the battery test data, RM4 features 61 days for standby, or 49 hours of talk time, or 48 hours of music playback, or 25 hours of web browsing, or 22 hours of video playback after a single charge session. You can’t expect more from a low budget Smartphone.
Another amazing feature of this battery monster phone is its Reverse charging mechanism that facilitates you to recharge another device at the moment of necessity. Certainly, it is a great advantage for both the professionals as well as the travelers who stay out-door for long hours.
