Lenovo P770 comes with a 3,500mAh battery and insanely attractive price

Lenovo seems to be coming to market with a new phone — the Lenovo P770 — and this one is going to turn a few heads based on a couple of different factors. Let’s start with the specs, shall we? Those who eventually opt for one can look forward to a 4.5 inch display with qHD resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, a 5 megapixel camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, Jelly Bean and more.

But it’s the battery that’s going to jump out at you. This thing challenges the Motorola DROID RAZR Maxx HD with a 3,500mAh battery, a kit that Lenovo says will deliver 29 hours of talk time. Whether or not those claims are accurate remain to be seen, but even if you shave a few hours off of that it’s still quite impressive.

Even more impressive is the price Lenovo’s putting on the P770. The device will cost ¥1,699 in China, which is just over $270 here in the states. Sure, MediaTek is no Qualcomm or NVIDIA but we’d be damned if we could find another phone in this range for this price. Well… the Nexus 4 is a more attractive offering for just $300 but you can’t quite get a 3,500mAh battery inside that thing even if you wanted to.

Unfortunately Lenovo has a history of skipping out on launches outside of Asia so those of you who want to snap this thing up will have to find a way to import it once it becomes available.

    Nice battery but everything else is ” meh”

    Great idea by Lenovo. I don’t know why more phone makers don’t make battery life as high of a priority for them as it is to their customer bases. I use my phone for business and pleasure. I need something that can handle 8-10 hours of heavy use with a fast recharge time. Battery life is more significant to me than how thin a phone is! I would love to see something like the HTC one x + offered with a 3,100mah battery!

      I agree 100% w/the “Thin is in” philosophy on SMARTPHONES. It’s total BS & is analogous w/the “supermodel” scene:Take a perfectly great phone/model & starve it. The end result is ugly & sad w/both.

      After the RAZR MAXX every OEM should have been scrambling to improve engineering for the sake of bigger batteries.

      I’ve reverted to what I thought on this topic earlier this year before getting my Galaxy Note. IFF you you have tethering, and you really should if at all possible, the ideal phone is:
      - medium sized (just big enough to type email on (about 4 inches))
      - weatherproof/waterproof
      - equipped with decent-enough camera for geotagged photos
      - very good battery life, preferably removeable
      - expandable storage (for portable music player)

      This is what I was looking for, and I went with a Galaxy Note instead. The big screen is nice, but the phone becomes unstable when I try to add too many iffy apps (it even crashed while composing this message), and the battery life sucks.

      Accompanying said smaller phone with a 7-inch “open”, rootable tablet gives MUCH more flexibility and reliability. The tablet can be better backed up and is still small enough
      to easily carry aroud. My Nexus 7 doesn’t seem to crash, while my Note locks up several times a day, and this after reflashing and trying to keep it simple.

      A 4-inch waterproof Nexus phone with a big battery and a power-sipping processor and a micro-SD would be ideal, though I know google continues to try to push us all toward the ever-present cloud which just isn’t.

    $30 more buys a Nexus 4 which is better in every respect except the battery.

      Thank you for regurgitating what was said in the article

      • a) youth.in.asia

        Does that still count as he swallows?

    • Lee McLaurin

      Not every respect; this one can use a microsd card.

    • RavenFox

      You had one vote and I just took it away.

      • BLADESMAN1889

        & I just took yours away :–)

    4GB of onboard storage? GTA3 and Batman. Oh look. No more phone storage. -_-
    No thank you. It’s pretty cool phone, but no. My apps need a place to stay and I’m NOT putting them on the SD card. They’ll be crashing all over the place. LoL!!
