This is a monster of a phone (in size). Its easily 3 phones stacked on top of each other.

 

A total of 18,000 mAh battery, and a standby time of 50 days!

 

But, would you buy anything like this?

The Verge has reviewed it, and don't seem like they are fans of it.

A comment on another site pointed out that it's no worse than a Game Boy.

Mind you, this was one of my first phones (first GSM phone):

The Motorola 3200 weigh 620 grams. And the phone I had before that was bigger and heavier again.

Even as a ingresser, i can't even consider that monstrosity...

 

Something like the Mate 20 Pro already kicks ass in the battery department. 

 

 

 

Props to energiser for trying though!

nakedmolerat: dual sim?

 

It's dual standby 4G, so nothing revolutionary or different to the majority of other dual sim devices out there today.
