Chinese handset manufacturer Gionee has just gone through a revamp, with a brand new logo and a tagline that now reads Make Smiles. While this might not change much for consumers, it's an important transition for the company. One of the first products to be available in India sporting the new company identity is the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus. This smartphone certainly continues the lineage of the Marathon-series with a large battery, but despite carrying the "Plus" moniker this phone's battery is smaller than that of the original Marathon M5 (Review) that launched last year. Has Gionee decided to try something new with the M5 Plus rather than just relying on the battery? Will the new Marathon M5 Plus be able to trump its predecessors when put through its paces in our review? Let's find out.

Gionee Marathon M5 Plus Summary

The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus is a great addition to the company's lineup, and the massive 5020mAh battery can keep it going for up to three days. There are a few worries such as clunky software and weak camera performance, which if fixed by Gionee could make the overall package much more attractive considering its high price.

    It has the MOST massive battery! The M5 Plus is very powerful and im very satisfied with the performance .

It?s pretty good looking and not bulky at all, fits easily in the pocket also. Worth the money! Great phone, great battery. Good job Gionee!
