The processor, which is paired with a Mali-T720 GPU and ample 3 GB of RAM, has its speed also clocked at 1.3 GHz, however. Gionee’s Amigo 3.1 OS, based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, still runs the show on the phablet.

Superb Battery Power

A very large 5020mAh battery powers the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus. You may still consider that a bit disappointing given the Marathon M5 was equipped with a whopping 6020mAh battery.

But the battery provided here is in fact supposed to last longer. A unique thing about this phablet’s battery is its ability to retain power after numerous charges, unlike most smartphone juicers.

Gionee says the battery is able to retain 90 percent capacity after an amazing 600 charging cycles, which translates to about two years. Dual-charging chips allow you get enough power to last a full day after a 60-minute charge.

The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus has a fingerprint scanner embedded in its home button. It also features a reversible USB Type-C port.

Pricing and availability

Gionee Marathon M5 Plus is available in Nigeria. The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus Price in Nigeria ranges from 110,000 Naira to 170,000 Naira, depending on your location in the country.
