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.
