Looks like this is a season for budget-friendly smartphones with big batteries. Next we have, the Rhythm RX100 by Rivo Mobile. This Lollipop based Android phone comes with an impressive feature set at a very competitive price — and most importantly, it features a 4000 mAh battery. This should be enough for you to use your phone for around 2-3 days, or even more depending on your usage. Another phone we have previously used with this big battery is the Infinix Hot Note.
Rivo Rhythm RX100 also comes with a 1.3 GHz quadcore processor, a 5.5-inch HD display, 1GB RAM and 8GB of built-in storage space for your photos and music. You can also take beautiful pictures with the 8 megapixels rear camera, and a 5 megapixels from camera for your selfies. For more technical specs and details, check them out below after the jump.

Infinix Pakistan held a bloggers meetup in Karachi a couple of days back to give a hands-on experience of their upcoming Infinix Zero 2. This phone is yet to launch officially in Pakistan — tomorrow — where we will get full details about the price. The Infinix team was kind enough to give some bloggers a hands-on of the device earlier before the launch.
Zero 2 will be the second phone by Inifnix in Pakistan. It comes with an octa-core processor, 13 megapixels camera, 5.0-inch AMOLED HD display screen, 2GB RAM, Gorilla Glass 3, 2300 mAh battery and is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat (Android 5.1 Lollipop is on its way in August!). It also has dual-SIM support. Pretty cool specs for a mid-range phone. We used the Infinix Zero 2, and were instantly in love with the body of the phone. It has a Kevlar back cover which is five times stronger than steel, but so light in weight and ultra-resistant to the usual bumps and scratches.
