No that is not a typo. Lenovo recently launched the P770, a new Android smartphone that boasts an incredible 644 hours (26 days!) of standby-time. The phone carries some junk in its trunk, sporting a hefty 3,500 mAh battery that bests the RAZR MAXX (HD) capacity by 200 mAh. Estimated talk time on the device is a little more humble, coming in at 29 hours of continual use. That means, according to Lenovo’s estimates, you could spend an entire day and then some making voice calls to friends before the P770 gave up the ghost. Pretty impressive! Of course, actual usage will provide varied results depending on how you personally use your phone. Still, it is good to see manufacturers putting more of an emphasis on long battery life because at times it has taken the backseat to more visible features like thinness and screen size (here’s looking at you Droid DNA).
Besides the massive battery, the P770 features a 4.5-inch IPS display with 960 x 540 pixels, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory (with expandable storage), a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera, all running on top of a slightly skinned version of Android 4.1. The phone is available now in China (no word on if it’s coming to Western markets) and costs about $273 US dollars.
How many of you would be interested in a phone with this kind of battery life? Are you willing to sacrifice thinness for longevity?
