Q2: How is the battery life?
A: As with all Android phones on the Ice Cream Sandwich OS, battery life does appear to be shorter.

Q7: Can you show us some benchmark results on battery life?
A: We are using Antutu Benchmark. We ran 3 test using Antutu, the scores range from 3800 to 4120. We also used Quadrant Standard Edition. However, the results screen shows the comparison of various phones models. It is not appropriate to show the screenshot for Quadrant. The scores are as follows: Total: 2190, CPU 1836, MEM: 1820, I/O: 4362, 2D: 612, 3D:2321.

How good is the battery? How did you test the battery life?
A: For talk-time, the iNO One is set to receive the incoming call (3 out of 4 bars) on 2G GSM network. Music is played continuously from the outgoing phone through the network to the iNO One. The talk-time lasted 8 hours 40mins. Note: The battery remained 15% capacity from 390 mins to 470 mins while the incoming call was still active.


Q8: Does the phone come with Google Play? Can it support whatsapp/viber/skype?
A: The phone comes pre-installed with Google Play (Marketplace). Through the marketplace, you can install the Android applications from the Play Store, including whatsapp, viber & skype.

Q9: Does the phone have a dedicated GPS?
A: Yes, the phone comes with a dedicated GPS which you can use with or without WIFI/3G. Now you can enjoy the benefits of GPS anywhere in the world for free! It tracks satellites using its own internal GPS antenna. The phone does not come with pre-installed GPS software. You can download for free from the Play Store: GPS status and GPS test.


Q10: Do you know that USB cables are not allowed in certain camps?
A:  Yes, we are well aware of these restrictions.  iNO One comes with the standard detachable USB charger. However, you can purchase the non-detachable USB charger for use in those camps. You can still charge the phone using normal microUSB cables.

Q11: What is the specific absorption rate (SAR) of the phone?
A:  The iNO One has a low SAR of 0.387 W/kg.  SAR is a measure of the mobile phone radiation level. The lower the rate, the less radiation it emits. Read Wikipedia on SAR, they have compiled a list of phone with SAR ratings. Popular Phones: iPhone 5 SAR – 0.951,  Blackberry Curve 9300 -1.07, Motorola Droid 2 – 1.58. (SAR above 2.0 is unhealthy)
