Battery technology isn’t the sexiest thing about smartphones. Most of us like to talk about Gigabytes, Gigahertz and screen resolution. Those are the things that make geeks like us all giddy inside. Battery length isn’t something often talked about. While savvy buyers will certainly ask what a phone’s battery capacity is before buying, it remains an afterthought for most buyers.
As phones becomes more powerful and consume more power however, the battery has been getting more and more attention as of late. That being said, it is still surprising to see a phone whose killer feature is its massive battery. The THL 5000, as its name implies, has a tablet like 5,000mAh battery encased in it. For comparison, the 2013 version of the Nexus 7 sports “only” a 3,950mAh battery. THL claims the phone can survive an insanely long “52+ days” in stand-by mode on a single charge.
