Battery has been a common problem among smartphone users. Good news is it has been addressed by many Android OEMs. There are tons of smartphones with good battery life in the market. But what if there’s a smartphone that can take you a extra mile more? We have here is the Starmobile Jump Max. It is an entry level smartphone with a battery almost the same size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Let’s unbox it and we’ll share our first impressions.

Holding it for the first time, we find the Starmobile Jump Max quite heavy. Well, that’s because of the huge battery inside. The phone weighs 167 grams. It is quite thick too but despite that is quite nice to hold thanks to its soft matte finish.
Button placements – 3.5mm headset jack and USB charging port at the top, nothing at the bottom, power and volume buttons are on the left, nothing on the right, the 5 megapixel fixed focus camera, the flash and a tiny speaker grill is at the back, and the VGA front facing camera and the 4.5-inch screen is on the front.
The phone uses two regular SIMs so that means you don’t have to cut your SIM. The 4.5-inch display is quite decent and it has good viewing angles. We will be using this phone for a week and we’re excited to put the battery into the test. Full review will come up in a week.
