Smartphones have been becoming smarter, but one thing that hasn’t kept pace with technology seems to be cell phone batteries. You might have the best phone in the world, but you will be looking for a payphone by the end of the day as your smartphone is out of juice. Not with the Philips W6618 though.

This phone has a gigantic 5300mAh battery, which is more than the largest tablets out there. What this means is that the phone can give you a standby time of over two months and talk time of almost 36 hours. Who wouldn’t want a phone  a like that?

But the rest of the phone is very uninspiring. A five-inch qHD screen, a MediaTek SoC with 1GB of RAM, and just 4GB storage with microSD support. Sadly, the phone is now available only in China.

However, we are sure there are at least some of us who are salivating at the size of that battery. Here is a look at where the W6618’s batter stacks up in comparison to some top smartphones and tablets.
