Gionne Marathon M5 review

When it comes to the struggle of providing the best Android smart phone in terms of battery life,we do have some competitor's in the Android phone industry. When we talk about the best android phone on terms of battery life the phone brands that often come to our minds are either Tecno Mobile Company or the Gionee Communication Company. 

These two have been showcasing their latest phone which are great. One of the latest phones Tecno brought out was the tecno L8 which has a battery capacity of 5050mAH. While on the other hand Gionee brought out the Gionee Marathon M5 with a battery capacity of 6020mAH which beat the tecno l8.

So today we are here to look at Gionee Marathon M5 which has a 60020mAH non removable battery that could last up to 3 days and also serve as a power bank.But the biggest highlight of the marathon M5(6020mAH battery) is also a hindrance weighing at 211 grams making it heavy and bulky.

But with this device you wont even worry about having your power bank around all the time,like most of us do.This device has a 5.5-inch screen although heavy but feels easy to use with a phone that packs a battery of this size,just 8.55mm of thickness is also has a plastic back
Gionne Marathon M5
It has a resolution of 1280 x 720 and since the pixel density is low pictures and texts are not very clear. It has a 13MP back facing auto-focus camera that can capture pictures with unbeatable frames. It also has a 5MP front facing camera for regular selfies.

Gionee M5 runs on Android L with Amigo 3.1 which is the latest version in the Android family. Powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, the phone packs in 3GB of RAM for a smooth Android experience. There's no lag or stuttering in navigation across screens or while web browsing. Even with graphic-intensive games, the Marathon M5 didn't break a sweat. Prolonged gaming sessions do cause heating up, but never to an uncomfortable level.

The M5 includes 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. For a mid-range smartphone, the Marathon M5 boasts of a competitive set of specifications and the hardware combo makes it a solid performer. There are some random crashes when several apps are running in the background, but that is most certainly a software issue, and could be taken care of via a software update.It also has a dual 4G Sim card slot at the side.The Gionee M5 supports Bluetooth 4.0.

The Gionee Marathon M5 is a good enough smartphone, and despite a few misses, performs quite well for a phone at this price point. The highlight of the device — battery life — is clearly not a gimmick and a solid proposition for potential buyers.

Available in black, white, and gold colors, the Marathon M5 comes at a price of about N50,000 to N78,000 depending on the seller.
