Just as with its slightly smaller cousin Marathon M5, the Marathon M5 Plus’ USP is also its incredible battery. While the Gionee Marathon M5 mobile is powered by two 3010 mAh Lithium-ion batteries that total up to an incredible 6020 mAh battery capacity, the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus has a 5020 mAh battery. The company claims that this battery has a standby time of 34.5 days. The fact that we are cannot overstate just how spectacularly brilliant the battery unit on the Marathon M5 Plus is, goes to show just how powerful the battery on the Marathon M5 is in the first place.
Gionee Marathon M5 Enjoy
The second device that Gionee has just introduced is the Gionee Marathon M5 Enjoy. This device has pretty much the same specifications as the Gionee Marathon M5 except a few minor changes. The one significantly noticeable change of course is in the battery capacity. The Gionee Marathon M5 Enjoy has a 5000 mAh Li-Po battery. The company claims this phone has 775 hours of standby time.

The camera units on the phone are pretty low key compared to the rest of the specs. The phone has an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera.
Gionee’s long term plans just became more obvious
While noting that these devices have been launched in China and are still to see the light of the day when it comes to the Indian smartophone market, it is not hard to determine what Gionee plans on doing in the immediate future as far as the Indian market is concerned.

As we have observed previously, Gionee has grand plans for India and the company made its intentions known when it decided to invest Rs. 300 crores in local manufacturing in India. The company’s target was stated to be 60 lakh units in India per annum. Therefore, we can safely assume that when the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus and the Gionee Marathon M5 Enjoy make their India debut the company will already have a marketing campaign ready to take it to the Indian masses.
