If you're one of those users with a hankering for a larger battery in your phone, look no further.

Lenovo's Vibe P1 comes with a whopping 5,000mAh battery, with a slightly lower-end model, the Vibe P1m, checking in with a 4,000mAh ticker.

While the larger battery does make the phone slightly thicker than the slim handsets you find today, the P1 isn't that much of a porker.

Like rival Chinese-made phone the OnePlus 2, the Vibe P1 has a slider switch, but it isn't used for notifications. Called the OneKey Power Saver, flicking it on puts the phone in power-saving mode and the home screen will show you how long the battery will last.

The Vibe P1 is clad in metal, with the design reminiscent of HTC devices.

The home button also doubles up as a fingerprint sensor.
