Modern smartphones may be tiny computers in your pocket that you can use for work, gaming, streaming videos, editing documents, and maybe making the occasional phone call. But all of those activities take a toll on battery life. It can be tough to find a phone that can last a full day without recharging.

The BLU Studio Energy is a phone that should easily last for two or more full days, thanks to its 5,000 mAh battery.

BLU introduced the Studio Energy at CES, and now it’s available for $149.

In fact, BLU says the phone should be able to run for up to 4 days on a charge, although a review from Android Police suggests that 2-3 days might be more realistic.

Unfortunately the huge battery (which is more than twice the size of the battery in most modern smartphones), is the best thing about the Studio Energy.

Other features include a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a 1.3 GHz MediaTek M6582 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and support for HSPA+ networks. The phone has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera.

The phone ships with Android 4.4 KitKat software.

  1. Blu is a joke. Customer support doesn’t exist. Most of their phones never see an update.

  2. Or, you could harken back to the days of removable batteries. Being able to swap out a drained battery for the evening with a fresh one is always handy too and is a lot lighter than a 5000mAH battery would be. Phones are getting harder and harder to find with this “feature” but it’s still a huge selling point for many.

    It’s funny, this thinness craze race has really impacted functionality. With replaceable batteries you can still be “cool” and thin but not have to be tethered to a charge station until you get home for bed.

  3. looks like its a Gionee Marathon M3 rebadge. The price is pretty hard to beat and I’ve seen decent reviews on the Gionee.

    from the review from androidpolice, after seven hours of charging, it went from 5% to 80%. its a big old battery, but that’s awfully slow charging.
    I do wish more phone makers would put giant batteries in the phone instead of making it ultra thin.

    1. Or, if they can’t put in a gigantic battery, at least make the battery user-swappable,
