But even that marathon runner of a handset has nothing on this clunky specimen from China. If you think that companies have done everything they can to cram as much battery into a smartphone form factor, then you haven’t seen anything yet. See that image above? You’re looking at the YAAO 6000 Plus. And it has a 10,900mAh removable battery, which we’re assuming is an unprecedented feat in smartphone history. The Plus — we’re also assuming — is shorthand for “plus 4,900mAh,” because otherwise, what else could it possibly stand for?
Besides rendering a large power bank useless, as well as thin-shaming almost every other phone, the YAAO 6000 Plus also draws attention to its flashy rugged outer build. If anything, it reminds us of a Vertu handset, but minus the cow leather and all the premium finishes. It won’t appeal to everyone — us included.

And a glance at the specs sheet won’t help its case. Beneath its imposing exterior, the YAAO 6000 Plus sports some underwhelming parts, including a 5-inch, 720p display; a quad-core MediaTek processor with 1GB of memory and 16GB of storage; and 13- and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras. The idea of a bargain-basement option with possibly the best battery life of any smartphone ever sounds a bit odd, but that’s exactly what the 6000 Plus is.
If you’re interested, you can get the YAAO 6000 Plus in China for the equivalent of $220 (roughly P11,000 in the Philippines). That’s a bit steep, and will probably deter all but the most committed. Then again, when it comes to phones with a massive juice box, there aren’t many choices out there.
