Sometimes apps widget and lunchers tends to crash down memory cards which will lead to lost of files or data. Trust me, you don't want to experience that too. There's a reason why the company made the apps to be installed only on storage memory.
Give us update Android 6.0 update for M5. Gionee is expensive and less useful

The phone is good in general. But in the specification it is given it will accept sd card upto 256 gb. But it does not take more than 32 gb.I tried with 64 gb.It doesnot respond and showed in storage "No sim card".I tried various brands of 64 gb card.the result is the same.I am using it for the past six months. Other than this sd card problem the phone is fine. Now I am using it in USA .It works fine. Since I take a lot of tennis videos for coaching the sd card capacity is not sufficient for me .Still I am using it because of its good performance. I will be thankful if I get any tech suggestion to Improve the capacity of the sd card.
I just bought this phone a few days ago, prior to that i read extensive reviews and user opinions about other Mid Range phones i had in mind like Ulephone Power, Xiaomi Mi Max and Infinix Zero 3, am the type of person that is very choosy about the type of phone i buy for my personal use, so i always do very deep research about any phone i want before buying it, i have very good amount of knowledge of mobile technology so i dont just enter the market and but any phone i see, though i wanted the Xiaomi Mi Max very badly i couldnt get my hands on it because i only found it on online stores and they always request for bank or online payment before sending the phone to me which i found not ok for me, everything about the online site looked real but many people have been scammed in the past using such online sales method where they request for payment even before u see the product, I finally decided to go for Gionee M5, 3 things made me choose this phone at the dying minute ,first is the outrageously long lasting battery life, it outlasts any mobile phone or tablet built till date in terms of battery life, the second is the Brilliant Amoled screen display though its not Full HD(just 720p) but the colours it reproduces are still very nice, deep, clear and sharp, then finally it comes with Infrared remote control hardware built in which allows u to control almost any electronic device like TV, Air conditioners, Decoders, Dvd etc....and i forgot to mention it comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which means the screen(even without any sort of screen protector) is very hard to scratch or break except in extreme circumstances... But i currently have just 2 problems with my Gionee M5, first is that i cant seem to turn off the keyboard voice feedback, i will turn it off but it will automatically turn itself on again to my greatest annoyance, then secondly i cant seem to find any option on how to move my games and apps to the SD Card, can anyone help out pls? ....=-O
