Lenovo Android Raises The Bar With 3500 mAh Battery


How large a battery do you look for in a smartphone? Being able to get though a full day of heavy usage can be tricky for plenty of handsets, but luckily we live in a time when there are more options than ever when it comes to battery capacities. It might have been the arrival of the Droid RAZR Maxx earlier this year that really got us thinking about things in earnest, as it marked a major manufacturer giving its users a clear choice between thin phones and those with jumbo-sized batteries, all other things being equal. While the RAZR Maxx (and now, RAZR Maxx HD) topped-out at 3300mAh, some leaked pics of an upcoming Lenovo Android show this manufacturer taking things one step further, apparently planning to give its P770 a 3500mAh battery.

The rest of the P770’s rumored specs don’t do much to captivate our attention, but that big battery is hard to ignore. While it’s only a six percent increase over the 3300mAh RAZR Maxx, could this mark the start of batteries creeping up closer to the 4000mAh mark? Up there, we’re getting well into tablet territory; that’s what the Galaxy Tab has, for example.

Sure, we might see things level-off again at this 3500mAh point, but would you like to see manufacturers keep pushing the envelope? Would you embrace a phone that was 10-12 millimeters thick if that meant the kind of fantastic battery life that’s being implied here?
