Battery life was never a problem back in the pre-smartphone era, but ever since we became slaves to touchscreens, it has been a major concern. Until new technology is developed, we are stuck with Lithium Ion batteries and there's only so much it can deliver. The most obvious way to get more battery life is increase size and capacity, which is exactly what Gionee has been doing with its Marathon series.

Gionee Marathon M5 Summary

The Gionee Marathon M5 prides itself on one thing and that is its unbeatable battery life. The phone will quite literally last you days before needing a charge, which is a great advantage for frequent travellers. The Marathon M5 is a quite a bit more refined than the Marathon M4, and Gionee has added some nifty creature comforts like an IR blaster into the mix. It’s one of the heaviest phones out there but thankfully, it’s slimmer than its predecessor and gets slightly beefed up specifications. The upgraded camera also does a decent job in daylight, making the Marathon M5 a good overall package.

  • best in this price range
    Deepda Nag (Jun 18, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    you will not regret to buy this, but wait for banks rebate offer which will be an aditonal plus point. Worth for technology its little heavier but that doesnt concern due to huge battery (6k).I did not come accross any lags, yeah when down loading apps sometime it couldnot and thats very easy to resolve take help from google or youtube. Over all a MARATHON
