The Lenovo P70 launched in China for ~$224, boasts 34 days of standby time with its 4,000mAh battery
Roughly a week before last Christmas, we told you about the Lenovo P70, a handset that comes with a large, 4,000mAh Li-poly battery that purportedly paves the way for a record-breaking  battery life of up to 34 days in standby mode and up to 46 hours of talk time.

The Lenovo P70 just got launched in China, where it sells for 1399 yuan (roughly $224), which theoretically allows you to put Lenovo's beast to the test.

For this sum of money you get a 5-inch 720p display, an octa-core MediaTek MT6752 chipset clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, as well as 16GB of native storage and microSD card support. 

At the back this Lenovo trooper we can find a 13MP camera, while a more modest 5MP one graces the front side of the phone. The operating system of choice is Android 4.4.4 KitKat, probably with Lenovo's own Vibe UI on top. LTE support and two microSIM card slots are also a part of the specs sheet.

The Lenovo P70 is already available in Europe, too, where it boasts a higher price tag - roughly $300.

They keep putting these 40000 mAh batteries, but they have one of the worst software optimizations making the battery life subpar for what it should be.

40,000 mAh? No amount of poor optimization can make that bad.

I really like it, but midrange specs, let it down.

The 5-inch screen has a 720p resolution with a 294ppi pixel density - ( 246ppi ????)

"we did the math for you - its pixel density is 246ppi" Then you should stop doing maths, the pixels density is 294ppi...

I can get that much standby time out of an HTC One S with a 1600 mah battery. Just need the right software. And no Google Services. Just getting rid of G Services gave me almost an extra hour of on-screen time.
