Gionee's mission in the budget smartphone segment has been all about delivering the best battery life possible. Its Marathon series really took off after the company launched the Marathon M4 (Review | Pictures) and more recently, the Marathon M5 (Review | Pictures).

Gionee Marathon M5 Lite Summary

The Gionee Marathon M5 Lite is just what you’d expect it to be, a Marathon M5 with a smaller battery. The phone is more compact with a 5-inch HD IPS display and stellar build quality. It certainly looks more stylish than its bigger brother. App performance is good thanks to the MediaTeK SoC and 3GB of RAM. The 8-megapixel rear camera is a bit of a let-down as pictures aren’t as detailed and sharp as we would have liked. We also miss little details like a notification LED and backlit buttons, which Gionee has skipped. Battery life is good but isn’t as great as we would have liked considering its size. Overall, at Rs. 12,999, the Marathon M5 Lite feels a bit underwhelming overall, and misses the mark.

  • Very good mobile
    Nimish Verma (May 3, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    This phone is much better than other phone because internal memory is so good and camera, battery is all better and best than any other phone, downloading is also good but Internet or surfing is average and ok but not so good. No hanging problem . Smart gestures are already included . This is better mobile under 12500.

  • This is the very same phone which me and my brother use.
    Blesson Sebastian (Mar 28, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Wonderful phone with high durability even though dropped on ground. Good speed. Doesn't hang even if the memory is full. Good camera clarity compared to the other 8mp cameras.Will not heat up easily. Long time battery backup with an extreme mode where it can be used for hours even when the battery is below 15 percent.It is really a phone that give you the value for money.
