Years ago when people had no idea about how the mobile world would develop and what kind of devices would replace the phones of that time, there was one brand, which boasted of its long-life battery. That company was Philips, and if my memory serves me well that handset was able to provide up to 60 days of life-time in standby mode. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the model but now it’s not important because we have sailed away from feature phones long before. Nowadays, people are worried about their smartphone view and high-end features more than about their battery. But such an attitude led to the fact that manufacturers ignored batteries, and as a result, we were buying handsets with batteries that didn’t last even a day.
Against this background there is only one handset that can boast of its battery — the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, but this phone costs too much and not everyone can afford it. Plus, this smartphone is not available in many countries, it isn’t offered even in China. This fact was carefully considered by Philips because its first smartphone after long silence is packed with a 2,400mAh battery providing up to 10.5 hours of web browsing.
The Philips W732 is equipped with decent features like a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, a 1GHz processor, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, a 5MP camera on the back, GPS, Bluetooth and a memory card slot. As it is designed for China and several other Far East countries, dual-SIM card support is a necessity.
Going back to the battery, it provides up to 13 hours of talk time but the Philips W732 is aimed at people who spend their days on the net. So this is the most powerful smartphone in terms of web browsing time because even the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX can do it only for 7.5 hours.
