There is LED notification and 4 sensors – light, proximity, magnetic and accelerometer. The front physical dedicated navigation button doubles up as finger print scanner.

Others
There is built in NFC and finger print scanner. You can register up to 3 finger prints. For some reason the SIM network was not working on this handset probably some software / hardware issue. There is 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth.

There is a reset button in case you want to reboot the system. You will have to open up the back cover to access this button.

Update : the SIM issue get fixed, IMEI was invalid, I added a new valid IMEI and it worked.

Battery
The key highlight about the P5000 is the massive 5350 mAh battery. On a full charge you can expect about 5 to 9 hours of continuous moderate to heavy usage. The temperature always showed 25 degree – the handset did get heated up with heavy usage but was not very hot. With normal usage the battery could go on for up to 4 days on a single charge.

You can also use this handset like a power bank to charge other devices.
