Vernee, whose handsets like the Apollo are positioned in the value-for-money segment, is trying to avoid the crowds in the sector by offering something rarely seen - a very affordable $130 phone with decent specs and nice design that would last you three days on a charge. How's that possible?
Well, the Vernee Thor E comes with a gigantic 5020 mAh battery pack, coupled with fast charging, but at the same time sports just 8.2mm girth. This puts it in a league of its own when it comes to endurance and design, as it is also just 149g light. Vernee promises 18 hours of video playback on a charge, 36 hours of continuous talk, or a month of standby, which, taken together, should bring you three days of normal usage on a charge.
The emphasis on battery endurance is so high with the newest Vernee phone, that it even has a dedicated E-ink key that puts the phone in power-saving mode, i.e. monochromatic display, throttling the processor clock speed, and so on, which can make it last a full day with just 20% juice left in emergencies. If you can spare two hours on a charger, on the other hand, the Thor E will be topped up completely from a dead state to give you three more days of usage, how about that?
Needless to say, Vernee needs to assure us with such a high-potency battery pack, and it has listed that the Li-polymer pack has undergone the extensive 8-step testing that is all the rage these days, including piercing it with a sharp object, or heating it up. The modern battery chemistry ensures 90% battery capacity retained after no less than 600 charge cycles, so the Thor E will likely serve you well for years to come without noticeable battery life deterioration.
To celebrate the launch, Vernee is giving a $109 promo price for those who preorder early at the link below, on a first-come-first-served basis, аnd you can can also grab it for just $9.99, if you hit the raffle jackpot. Oh, did we mention that the phone is with Al-Ti brushed metal finish, and comes with Android 7.0 Nougat? It is, and there is a finger scanner thrown in at the back for a good measure, so if you are in the market for a marathon runner that won't break the bank or your eyesight, hit the links below to scoop one up.
