Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 hands-on

Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 hands-on
So how did we solve the battery issue with today’s modern smartphones? Easy! Manufacturers just decided to outfit them with even beefier batteries to fill the void. Interestingly, that’s exactly what the Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 is all about, since it’s sporting one mammoth 3,500 mAh battery that’s rated to provide 30 hours of talk time or an impressive 12.5 days of standby!

Frankly, the IdeaPhone P770 is an ugly duckling when compared to the precise and modern design of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. Obviously, we’re not digging the cheap feel of this glossy plastic handset, but at the same time, it’s super chunky in size – though, we have to remind ourselves that it’s hiding a 3,500 mAh inside of itself.

Specs wise, it’s hardly an impressive item since it’s featuring a 4.5-inch qHD (540 x 960) IPS display and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Yes, it’s running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but it’s relying on Lenovo’s very own custom UI, which isn’t the most visually impressive thing. Regarding its battery, it’s worth to mention that it has a “fake battery detection,” which lets you know if the replacement battery you’re using isn’t the proper one. Additionally, it has the ability to charge other devices as well, since an adapter is packaged along that has a USB port to allow other smartphones to leech off its beefy battery.

Currently, there are no plans for this to make an appearance stateside, but the Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 is currently available in the Chinese market.

"Obviously, we’re not digging the cheap feel of this glossy plastic handset" That's strange, the back of the handset looks like the Samsung Galaxy S3's back, a lot.

Now that's an endurance champion, too bad it's not 720p. Actually I'm close setting my personal battery mark at a 3000mAh minimum, Oppo Find 5 is all cool at 2500, but Huawei D2's 3000 at fullHD is something hard to look by. If the P770's got healthy juice, maybe Lenovo manages to add a slim yet giant one to the L900.

I charge other devices with my N8 all the time via the included USB-OTG adaptor. Is the adaptor mentioned here a USB-OTG adaptor too or some proprietary adaptor?

It's just an ordinary USB-OTG. Someone experience MHL Video Out capability on this device? Thanks!
