|Amazon||Gionee Marathon M5 Lite (Gold)||Rs. 12,655|
The Chinese handset maker, Gionee also is slowly expanding its smartphone lineup in the country and some devices are worth a mention. One such handset is the recently launched Marathon M5, which comes with a long lasting battery and impressive specifications. Now, the handset maker has launched a new device called Gionee Marathon M5 Lite, which is a stripped down version of Marathon M5. This handset packs similar looks as that of its elder sibling and offers good specifications. Here is a brief overview of the handset so that our readers can decide.
Gionee Marathon M5 Lite comes with standard bar form factor and polycarbonate make, which is a standard in most devices these days. However, the contrast between glossy sheen on the sides of the handset and matte finish on front and back panel is quite attractive.
Gionee has equipped the new handset with a decent 5-inch display that one can enjoy playing games and watch movies on. The resolution offered by the display has been pegged at 1280 x 720 pixels so that users can enjoy multimedia content in HD quality.
Gionee is offering the new device with the last generation Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system out of the box for a ready to use smoothness. However, the user experience is further improved upon by Gionee's Amigo UI, which is a drawer-less interface for ease of usage.
Performance and Battery Life
The Chinese brand has equipped its latest smartphone with a Quad-core processor that has been clocked at 1.3 GHz. Gionee has coupled the new handset with a massive 3 GB of RAM so that the device does not lag while handling any kind of tasks and processes. There is a 4000 mAh battery under the rear panel of this smartphone that can last a whole day on a full charge, quite easily.
Gionee has placed an 8 Megapixels primary snapper on the rear panel of the new device for photography lovers. The front panel of this handset also features a powerful 5 Megapixels snapper for selfie lovers.
This dual-SIM handset features support for both 4G LTE and 3G for an enhanced Internet browsing experience for its users. The handset also has connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, microUSB and GPS.
Gionee has delivered a lot of impressive handsets in the past and Marathon M5 happens to be one of these handsets. The new Marathon M5 Lite retains most impressive features from its elder sibling and might come with a reduced price tag. If this handset is priced under INR 15,000, it is most likely to find favor from Indian customers.
