Let’s face the fact – when one talks about vanilla mobile phones and smartphones, the name Philips would not be at the top of anyone’s list, for sure. After all, they hardly do any marketing around the world for their handsets, not to mention the fact that their flagship models are nothing to shout about. In fact, Philips has more or less built a reputation for rolling out handsets with long battery life, a feature that will most probably appeal to those who want a communications device without all the bells and whistles, one that lasts for days on end. The Philips Xenium W8510 does seem to be a suitable candidate, where this will run on the Android operating system while claiming a whopping 35 days of standby time. I am quite sure that this figure involves leaving the handset just there without any of its Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios turned on.
Not only that, the Philips Xenium W8510 is also said to deliver up to 18 hours of talk time over a 3G network, and a jaw dropping 14-hour of Web browsing time over Wi-Fi. This is done via a 3,300 mAh battery, which also has to ensure that the 4.7” 720p HD touchscreen display works as expected.
