Design and Display

Gionee Marathon M5 shows off a relatively slim body at a thickness of 8.5 millimetres despite its large battery size.

It looks attractive to the eye as well, even though it is made of plastic. But the handset is rather bulky at 213 grams.

It is available in white, black and gold colour options. The Gionee Marathon M5 crams in a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with thin bezels to allow great viewing.

The AMOLED touchscreen has an HD (720p) resolution, which is not exactly awesome given its size, but should still deliver pleasant viewing experience.
