There’s no shortage of large phones in the Indian market. But you’ll be hard pressed to find a device with a 5020-mAh battery!
Now available in India, the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus delivers outstanding battery life and other top features in a sleek metallic design.
As a quick aside, while the battery capacity is positively massive, the M5 Plus’ battery is actually smaller than its sibling’s, the Marathon M5, which has a 6,020-mAh unit.
Where the M5 Plus outshines the M5 is in the security department, thanks to the inclusion of a front-mounted fingerprint reader. Other noteworthy specs include a luscious 6-inch AMOLED display of Full HD resolution, a MediaTek octa-core processor, and a 13MP rear camera.
Full Gionee Marathon M5 Plus specs:
- 5020 mAh Battery
- 6 inch 2.5D Curved FHD AMOLED
- 3GB RAM & 64 GB ROM
- 13 MP Primary Camera
- 5 MP Secondary Camera
- Android v5.1 (Lollipop) Amigo 3.1 OS
- 3 GHz Octa Core MT6753 Processor
- Expandable Storage Capacity of 128 GB
- 4G with VoLTE
The device is available in either Polar Gold or Champagne Gold (don’t ask us what’s the difference though) and unfortunately, it won’t be super cheap. Flipkart is the exclusive online retailer of the Marathon M5 Plus, selling the device for a cool Rs. 26,999 (about $400).
Still, if you must have a tremendous battery in your life, the Marathon M5 Plus is the way to go, at least until Xiaomi brings the equally impressive Mi Max to India.
