Gionee Marathon M5 Plus

Gionee Marathon M5 Plus was launched in December 2015, and it came in with a 6.0-inch display, 4G connectivity with VoLTE, and a 5020 mAh battery.

The Marathon M5 Plus is a variant of the Marathon M5 that had a large 6020 mAh battery. But what is large here is the screen size, as the Marathon M5 Plus comes with a 6-inch display with a Full HD resolution.

The processor in the M5 Plus is Mediatek’s octa-core MT6753 chipset that has been doing well in phones like Coolpad Note 3 and its performance is good, along with Mali-T720MP3 GPU. Internally everything else is well packed too, as the Marathon M5 Plus comes with 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, and Gionee has provided a dedicated slot for the MicroSD card to expand the storage.

The cameras are similar on this one and the Marathon M5, with the combination being at a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The back camera is capable of capturing 1080p videos while the front camera can take 720p videos.

There is 4G LTE support and the phone comes with two Micro SIM card slots. Additionally, the Marathon M5 Plus boasts a fingerprint scanner for additional security and the scanner is located on the front of the device, on the home button.

The Marathon M5 Plus supports VoLTE and the connectivity to the PC or charge is through its USB Type-C port, which is helpful not just in quicker data transfer but also in faster charging rates.
