It's a rare sight nowadays that a manufacturer would stuff a massive battery in a smartphone. Usually, such an act means compromising a phone's slim profile. But, just 3 months ago, manufacturer Vernee showed us that we can get the best of both worlds with its midrange Thor E phone, which had a 5,200 mAh cell, but still retained a relatively slim profile. Now, the company is upping the ante with the Thor Plus and its massive 6,200 mAh battery. But let's start from the top!

The Vernee Thor Plus is a metal-laden handset with fine minimalistic looks about it. It sports a 5.5-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution amounting for about 267 PPI density. The handset is powered by a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor ticking at 1.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, and has 32 GB of onboard storage expandable via microSD card. The cameras have a 13 MP sensor on the back and an 8 MP one for selfies. Of course, the phone has Android 7 Nougat out of the box.

Now, for the jewel in the Thor Plus' crown — its battery. It's a massive 6,200 mAh cell, which is technically bigger than your average portable power bank. It's not all about having a big battery, though, it's how your phone uses it. Vernee has developed a system, which it calls VOS, that has been made with the specific purpose of making better use of huge batteries. It optimizes standby time and delivers really quick charging — the 9 V / 2 A charger can top up the huge battery in just 90 minutes.

Vernee promises 20 hours of video-watching or 30 days of pure standby on a full charge, which is pretty impressive if so. In case that's not enough, you've got a power-saving mode, easily activatable by a hardware button on the side of the phone.
