Why have Lenovo’s smartphones have become the definition of long battery life?


Quite a few researches show that users consider battery life as one of the most important aspects of a device. Some of the major OEMs have noticed this and started working on devices that provide longer battery life. A certain company pops up when we think of excellent battery life – Lenovo. In the past couple of year, the Chinese manufacturer has gained even more popularity and is now among the leaders of the smartphone market. The frequent release of new smartphones is part of Lenovo’s policy. The new devices have different functions and design, but they all share one common characteristic – batteries with huge capacity, some of which with 5000 mAh.

Ultimate Power Saver

Most of Lenovo’s models, or at least the most recent ones, have an Ultimate Power Saver mode available that significantly increases the remaining battery life. It decreases the brightness, changes the background to a dark theme and limits the functionalities of the device to only the basic ones – phone calls and messages. Models such as Vibe P1m and Vibe P1, even have a physical switch that instantly activates the Ultimate Power Saver mode.
