Along with the Huawei P8, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has also announced its variant with a humongous battery dubbed Huawei P8max. It comes with hardware specifications exactly similar to the Huawei P8 but the screen size (now 6.8-inch), battery (4,360 mAh), and thickness (now 6.8 mm). Thanks to its super-thin bezels, the device has a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent, much higher than that of the LG G3.

According to Huawei, the P8max can last over 2 days under normal usage and at least 1.5 days of heavy usage. It even comes with a reverse charging abilities, so that you can charge other devices through its mammoth battery.
