Battery life is one of the most important deciding factors in purchasing a smartphone nowadays. Because, after all, what do you need one for if you run out of juice in the middle of the day? Well, Elephone seem to have taken that under consideration and that’s why their latest Elephone S8 comes with a bigger battery than you’d think.
Let’s get into the specifics now: how big of a battery is it? Data in hand, the Elephone S8 comes with a 4000mAh capacity battery. That’s quite a big battery if you consider the latest Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 featuring the “same” 6-inch display only comes with a 3400mAh battery.
Sure, the Elephone S8 might not be as thin or have a similar screen-to-body ratio compared to the Mi MIX 2, but isn’t that what we’ve been asking companies in the last years? Give us a slightly bigger device and fill that additional space with battery. Well, Elephone seem to have done just that.
Elephone say that the bigger battery can achieve 480 hours of standby and 10 hours of continuous calling, we’ll let you know if that’s true once we get our hands on the device.
If you can’t wait for our review, you can get the Elephone S8 now over at Gearbest for $239 in the 4GB/64GB version.
