June 25, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Gionee has been in the smartphone business for quite some time now. This China-based smartphone OEM has showcased a couple of devices this year. They’ve introduced the Elife S7 during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year, and then introduced two more devices quite recently. The smartphones in question are Elife E8 and Marathon M5. The former one is Gionee’s new premium offering, the company’s metallic flagship, while the latter one belongs in the mid-ranger category and offers a really huge battery (batteries actually) on the inside.

That being said, we’re here to talk more about the Marathon M5 which is no available for sale in China. The Marathon M5 was just listed in China for 2,299 Yuan ($370), which is not exactly super cheap, but this handset does have a lot to offer. Speaking of which, let’s check out its specs, shall we. This handset features a 5.5-inch HD (1280 x 720) AMOLED display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device is fueled by MediaTek’s MT6735 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, and it offers two SIM card slots. The 13-megapixel camera is located on the back of the Gionee M5 Marathon, and same can be said about the LED flash. On the front side of this smartphone you’ll find a 5-megapixel snapper, and 4G LTE connectivity is also a part of this package. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with Gionee’s Amigo OS installed on top of it. The Marathon M5 measures 152 x 76. 8.5mm, while it weighs 213 grams.

This handset actually packs to 3,010mAh batteries on the inside, which means you’ll get a 6,020mAh battery overall, which should be more than enough juice even for the most demanding users out there. The company says that the device can last for up to 62 hours in standby even if it has only 5% of battery left, which is impressive. The phone sports three capacitive buttons below the display, it’s very sleek-looking, and it offers minimal bezel on the sides. There you have it folks, the Marathon M5 is now available for purchase for 2,299 Yuan ($370), if you’re interested (and live in China), follow the source link down below.
