Walton Primo RH2 Review
The new addition to the Primo family, Walton Primo RH2, is the updated version of the RH series which was just released in the beginning of the year 2015. In less than 6 months, Walton is back with the successor already.
Before heading on to the details of the phone, let’s have a look at what’s inside the box of the Walton Primo RH2:
- Charger Cable
- OTG Cable
- Screen Protector
- Flip Cover
- Warranty Card
At first sight, the Primo RH2 seems to be a decent phone with a good build quality. The plastic build phone mimics a metallic feel which gives it a premium look. The rear is made of polycarbontae having a dotprint texture making it less prone to fingerprint smudges.
Moving on to the body parts of the phone, the volume rocker buttons are situated at the right side with the USB port and the audio jack at the top. This leaves the left and the bottom side of the phone free of ports and buttons. At front, there’s the front camera, light sensor and the LED notification light and at the back, with the rear camera lies the speaker at the bottom. The speaker could have a different sort of design as it looks quite weird with a silverish line engraved at the dot texture.
The back, as usual, is removable with a replaceable battery, two SIM card slots and a space for the microSD card.
The Walton Primo RH2 comes with a 5-inch IPS display screen having a resolution of 1280 x 720. The display is protected by Corning Glass 2 so there’s no worry for the screen to get shattered if it falls to the floor unless excessive force is used.
Overall display of the phone was quite good with colors being vibrant with full brightness on. Even in broad daylight, it was quite easy for us to see the display peacefully with no hassle with texts and images looking good and sharp.
Walton Primo RH2 currently runs on the Android 4.4.2 Kitkat. I hope it’s in the queue to receive the Lollipop update soon. As for the device, it houses an Octa Core MediaTeck SOC with a clock speed of 1.4GHz and a Mali 450 as its GPU. In terms of ranking in the Antutu Benchmark, Walton Primo RH2 scores 28308 which is just below Nexus 5 and the LG G3. So as you can see from the scores, the power of the smartphone somewhat matches with those group of devices. There’s no need of comparing the RH2 with the latest flagship devices considering the low price tag that it carries.
As for the storage space, the device has 8GB of internal storage space with 5. free since the rest is taken away by the system it self.
Walton Primo RH2 boasts a 8MP camera with autofocus at the rear with a 2MP front facing camera. While taking photos, the shutter speed was normal and not laggy with pictures turning out to be of good quality.

The battery is the one place where the Walton Primo RH2 could have improved itself. The previous Walton Primo RH had a 2200mAh power battery while the RH2 comes with only a 2000mAh power.
The phone comes with a OTG cable which means you can store your files from the PC easily. Just out of curiosity, I even plugged in my keyboard and mouse (bluetooth) and found out it to run well. But who would actually use keyboard and a mouse for a phone. Also the Walton Primo RH2 has the OTA update enabled which by a click, the phone would get updated.
The slim Walton Primo RH2 carries a price tag of only BDT 9,990. At this affordable rate, the features match with the price quite well.
