Move over Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD, the Lenovo P770 is now available in China with a 3500mAh cell
When Motorola and Verizon launched the original Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, the phone was seen as a gimmick. After all, why didn't any other manufacturer put a big ass battery in their flagship and call attention to the huge talk time? Motorola knew it had something when the handset beat out the Apple iPhone 4S at Verizon during some months. And to show you how deeply ingrained the RAZR MAXX has become in the DROID legend, consider that even with a whopping 2530mAh battery on the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, there was an outcry for a Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD and its higher 3300mAh battery.

Despite this, most manufacturers have not challenged the DROID RAZR MAXX HD outside of the 3100mAh cell on the Samsung GALAXY Note II. That is, until now. Earlier this month there was a leak that revealed that the Lenovo P770 was going to have a 3500mAh battery on board, surpassing the battery on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. Now, Lenovo's own home site shows off the model and it is just as well endowed as the speculation had revealed.

The phone is currently available in China with that 3500mAh battery, a 4.5 qHD display, a dual-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6577 processor under the hood, 1GB of RAM on board, 4GB of native storage and a 5MP rear facing camera with LED flash. The handset offers 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. The front facing shooter weighs in at .3MP and Android 4.1-that's right, Jelly Bean-is installed out of the box. The battery provides for 29 hours of talk-time, or up to 644 hours of stand-by time (26 days). The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD has 21 hours of talk time, in comparison. But keep in mind that the DROID RAZR MAXX HD is LTE enabled while the Lenovo P7670 is not.

The price of the Lenovo P770 with an 8GB microSD Card pre-installed is 1,699 CNY ($273 USD) which seems like a great price for such a long lasting device that doesn't ask for a recharge fix every few hours. At this point, we think that seeing this model launch in the U.S. would be a longshot thanks to the lack of 4G connectivity.  But knowing how desperate statesiders are for long battery life, we would bet that the Lenovo P770 would do quite well in the U.S. if the manufacturer would re-wire the innards to account for an LTE signal.

This is why I love competetion, and I know the galaxy note/note 2 can easily fit the 4100Amh all the way to 4500Amh battery in the hug body.

Ordered a 4200mah with charger for $20 on ebay. Just waiting for it to get here. The stock battery is pretty impressive though. I just rather swap them out than plug into the wall.

NIce, but a qHD screen, dual core MediaTek processor and a bunch of low end stuff this will definitely be a bargain phone. that profile pic this phone is rather bulky, looks like it has a chubby stomach lol. Now that Motorola has forced other to look at their battery, Moto needs to make all their phones with 2500mAh and larger, seems like that size is good for standard phones with 4" plus screens.

Yup, not much going on except for the battery.... Lenovo better not price this thing heavy else this thing will be long forgotten before it even gets released!

Some peope like FAT phones! Not always Thin is good. Manufacturers used to give you the option of a standard battery or a humped back,heavy duty one. Why can't they still do that?

So in other words, there is literally nothing about this phone other than the battery life that beats out the Maxx HD. It's thick, its processor is only as good as the original Razr Maxx's, it doesn't have nearly the internal memory and it doesn't have the Maxx HD's build quality. I mean, hell, even the original Maxx still comes with a 16 gig SD card. Come on, Lenovo, don't be another f**king LG, ripping off better models with poor copies. (See the Intuition, the answer to the Note/2). By the by, we sold a SH.IT TON of Galaxy S3s this Black Friday.

Actually that phone here in asia is priced only slightly above the low end Android phones made by big OEM's. So for people that wanna try android without breaking the bank, this in my opinion is one of the best option spec's wise.

Okay, fair enough. Still, here in the USA that s**t wouldn't fly unless maybe it was sold at 50 bucks on contract, 100 tops.

Indeed. Lenovo's target market for this phone is the emerging smartphone market mostly. US consumers wont even bother looking at this phone anyways per todays standarfs I'd assume (just my opinion).

Seems much thicker than the Maxx..and specs wise, it's a no competition. For those who want a high end Droid with great battery, there are still only two choices - MAXX HD and the Note 2

If Motorola made a phone that thick better believe the battery would most likely be 4500mAh or more. Just saying.
