10 smartphones with huge batteries (2017 Edition)

Published

on

Smartphones in 2017 are all about borderless displays, but some users still prefer long-lasting devices on the road, particularly phones that don’t need a power bank to last the whole day.

Here are ten handsets that have big batteries starting from a capacity of 5000mAh.


ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom — 5000mAh

ASUS’ first dual-camera smartphone is not only a capable camera phone, but it also packs a big 5000mAh battery in its slim 8mm-thin aluminum body.

ASUS ZenFone 4 Max — 5000mAh

For the budget conscious, ASUS also offers another ZenFone with a 5000mAh battery. It’s not as good-looking as the ZenFone 3 Zoom, but it can last long on the road, too.

Moto E4 Plus — 5000mAh

Motorola also has a handset with a 5000mAh battery inside, and like the ZenFone 4 Max, it’s also friendly on the pockets.

ZTE Blade A2 Plus — 5000mAh

Another entry before we leave the 5000mAh threshold is the Blade A2 Plus from ZTE. It’s a budget device, so aside from the large battery capacity, there’s nothing special about this phone.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 — 5300mAh

Xiaomi has to be on this list with their second-generation Mi Max phablet. With its sheer size, you already expect the phone to have a large battery capacity — 5300mAh to be exact.

Doogee BL7000 — 7000mAh

If you really need to have a phone that seems to have a power bank built in, this one from Doogee has a 7000mAh battery and leather grains on its back.

Oukitel K8000 — 8000mAh

Going further, here we have a phone with an 8000mAh battery. It has a metal unibody and dual cameras as an extra set of features.

Oukitel K10000 Pro — 10000mAh

If 8000mAh is not enough, Oukitel has another one with a 10000mAh capacity plus a distinctive design to make it stand out from the crowd.

Oukitel K10000 Max — 10000mAh

Oukitel also has a rugged variant of its 10000mAh battery smartphone that’s ready to take on the challenges of the outdoors. It’s long-lasting, waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof!

Doogee BL12000 Pro — 12000mAh

The biggest on this list is from Doogee. Who would have thought that somebody would need a 12000mAh battery inside their pocket? It also touts impressive specs like a Helio P23 processor, an 18:9 ratio display, and dual rear cameras.

OPPO A9 2020 Hands-On: Massive and Playful

For every kind of junkie

Published

on

OPPO recently streamlined its smartphone lineup. From Find and Reno, OPPO introduces us to the newest A series. On paper, it seems the A-series is a combination of the F-series and former A-series. Sitting in a sweet spot between an affordable price range and incredible performance, the OPPO A9 2020 is shaping up to be a contender in a sea of smartphones fighting for the crown in the midrange category.

With Xiaomi and Huawei firmly in the lead, can OPPO put up a fight just like it did with its F series? Let’s find out in this Hands-On!


Starting with looks, the OPPO A9 2020 gives in to a premium-like design

It has a dedicated fingerprint scanner and a quad-camera setup on its rear

Its top is clear, but its bottom shows-off its speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port

It has a 6.5″ IPS LCD screen with a waterdrop notch for the front camera

The OPPO A9 2020 prides itself with its new design that took inspiration from its R-series. In addition, OPPO focused on the phone’s display, reinforcing its IPS LCD screen with a Toughened Corning Gorilla Glass 3+.

Moreover, its screen has new features such as the Sunlight Screen which allows you to adjust the contrast so you can read the screen, even under strong direct light. It also has a Blue Shield which filters out blue light, relieving your eyes from fatigue and strain and protecting your eyesight.

Going big and definitely not going home

Sporting a Snapdragon 665 chipset along with an 8GB RAM, 128GB storage (which you can expand up to 256GB of external memory), the A9 2020 really joined the battle of offering power to midrange devices. OPPO decides to make everything flashy and… big.

For instance, it boasts a humongous 5000mAh battery that can last you throughout the day. Furthermore, it’s capable of reverse wireless charging (through OTG) so your friends can rely on you when their phones run out of battery.

Gamers will find delight with the A9 2020. Thanks to Game Boost 2.0, OPPO’s accelerator technology aims to resolve latency, reduce touchscreen lag, and optimizing energy consumption to avoid overheating.

OPPO decided to up their game for entertainment junkies, too! Packed with Dual Stereo Speakers and Dolby Atmos sound effects, expect a superb, immersive audio experience.

Smarter, smoother

The A9 2020 runs on ColorOS 6 based on Android 9.0. Now, its interface is cleaner and smoother. Icons look cute with their subtle gradient tones.

It also comes with smart functions like Smart Assistant, Riding Mode — which lets you remain uninterrupted by notifications and incoming calls — and a Music party app which lets multiple phones connect in the same LAN through a Wi-Fi hotspot for synchronized listening.

Navigating the phone is now easier with a single hand, too. Through Gesture Navigation, you can return to the home screen, check out recent tasks, switch pages and applications by just swiping up, left, and right.

Cameras for all angles and scenarios

The OPPO A9 2020 shows off its highly versatile camera setup. It has a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel portrait lens, and a 2-megapixel mono lens on its rear.

On its front is a 16-megapixel camera with AI Beautification technology which automatically identifies your skin tone, age, gender, and skin color for customized beautification, giving you a pretty yet make-up free look.

More features include artistic portrait styles, ultra night mode, and 4K video shooting. More sample photos here:

Is the OPPO A9 2020 your GadgetMatch?

If you’re into massive and chunky smartphones with a solid build, the OPPO A9 2020 might be a good match. It offers power and performance for gamers and entertainment junkies, and its smartphone has a versatile camera setup to appease your needs. While there may be Xiaomi and Huawei leading the midrange category, OPPO definitely cooked up a powerful yet affordable phone that can go toe-to-toe with its rivals.

The OPPO A9 2020 is available in two colors: Space Purple and Marine Green. Its retail price is PhP 15,990 and will be available for pre-order starting September 20 until September 27 in Lazada, and through OPPO stores, authorized dealers, and e-commerce partner sites like Shopee, Akulaku, and Argomall on September 28.

For those who want to avail through Home Credit, customers can pre-order the A9 2020 starting September 20 with flexible payment terms of six and nine months with a guaranteed zero percent interest.
