World's first Mobile phone with 5000mAh battery (1000 Hours Stand-by)

One of the most important characteristics that we look at a particular device is the battery and one of the most common complaints is that the battery does not last more than a day, especially when talking about high-end devices that are energy intensive.

Most flagships typically hold a maximum of two days and the battery manufacturers sacrifice on the altar of design.

How would you feel if you had a device which comes with a battery that reaches 5000mA; Next month will see these devices are certainly not coming from big companies like Samsung, Apple, Sony, HTC or LG but two rather unknown to us Chinese companies.

The first is the Chinese company Eton for which first heard April that prepares Eton Thor will have 5000mAh battery and will not be so bulky as to be expected, but its thickness will be in 9mm. As for technical features, has the octa-core chipset MediaTek MT6592, has 2GB RAM and Mali-450 GPU. However, it does not support LTE networks while we do not have any information on the screen.

The second company is also Chinese ThL (Technology Happy Life) which revealed the ThL 5000 the first Android smartphone that as seen from its name has 5000mAh battery. The ThL 5000 has 13MP sensor Sony IMX135. The ThL 5000 promises 1,000 hours standby, 47 hours talk time, 11 hours web browsing, 125 ώρες audio listening and 11.6 hours video play.

Both devices are expected to arrive in June with prices around $ 300 i.e. half of the current flagship.

Top 5 Weird Nokia Mobile Phones

Nokia was the biggest seller of mobile phones before the rise of Androids. Nokia released its weirdest handsets in the mid 2000s. In fact, those were the years when most manufacturers made unusual phones. That’s because there were a lot of buttons that needed to be included on the front (or sides) of devices. Plus, there was no standard form factor for handsets.

It offers a small display with 208 x 104 pixels, and doesn’t have a keypad, instead providing a Navi-Spinner which makes text input a frustrating experience.

4. Nokia N-Gage

Nokia has been trying to create a portable gaming device, which resulted in a release number N-Gage in 2003. However, the device was not accepted by critics for several reasons, mainly because of the shape of the hull.
