Battery of QMobile Linq L15
Now to talk about the battery, on the paper it’s written that it has a 2800 mAh but when used so the results were not that amazing. Felt really disappointed with the battery performance. It almost finishes a day with full charge which is not that amazing if you think about the 2800 mAh and the 720p screen.
The user interface of Linq L15 is exactly like what the screenshot describes below. The layout has been changed completely and now touch pad and keyboard also makes the difference. The new OS Android 5.0 gives it a lot of new and cool features which gives this phone a profound feel but some QMobile standards have also been followed.

On average a phone of these specs would try to make it around 20,000 points but the Linq L15 scores 17455 points which is also not bad taking in account its processor. But if compared to its predecessor Linq L10 so it has a lead of 2000+ points which is also not bad.

The reason why we compare Linq L15 with Galaxy S3 is because these both phones have almost the same specs. And if you see you will know that in Single Core Processing Linq L15 out runs the Galaxy S3 but when it comes to Multi Processing and Browsing Performance then the Galaxy S3 is way ahead of Linq L15.
