5,000 mAh is the same as the Gionee Marathon M3 which is sold in the USA as the BLU Studio Energy. Where have you guys been? I've had a BLU Studio Energy for a couple months now as a back up phone to my OPO and it's amazing. If I leave it powered on in standby mode it'll drop only 1% per day. The huge battery is insane. I can't wait for this phone to come to the USA. I'll totally buy the new Studio Energy. More RAM, more storage and LTE? Sounds like something I might actually use 50% of the time. Swap between the Moto X Style and a BLU Studio Energy 2. Sounds like this'll be an awesome winter.

People always find something to complain about. Honestly the only issue I have with my BLU Studio Energy is the GPS is inaccurate. Other than that the phone is awesome.

It should be no surprise that most Chinese manufacturers overstate the MAH in the batteries. I'm being kind when I say "overstate" .
