Got my Gionee Marathon M5 today -- Sad to say it does not recognize my 64 GB Sandisk XC 1 SD card whereas a 32 GB card is being recognized. Also the audio quality is pathetic -- even in a closed room the other person's voice is barely audible and you have to strain yourself to hear him. :( No wonder Samsung, LG are the industry leaders ... things work. As far as the battery is concerned .. a person can always carry a battery pack. Wrong choice. :(
Great phone with good specs if you are a CDMA + GSM network user.
Camera not good in low light condition otherwise OK.
Amigo OS is little buggy. for example if you create folder for several apps on screen that folder automatically removed when you restart your phone.
Phone has no heating issue. If you feeling such try to factory reset. Uninstall power consuimg app. It comes with ' DU Phone booster ' app. It kills your backgorund apps and frees memory, Can stop auto startup apps (faster phone performance), Junk & useless APK file removal etc etc...

AnonD-499576, 11 Feb 2016Guys. Please come out of a thought that Gionee is not a Brand. Seriously you wont regret once ... moresir, how about the weight of the phone- 1.is it easy to carry or leads to wrist pain on long usage and 2.also about one hand usage is it possible? 3.any heating issues on long usage? thank you for ur straight forward review ...
The phone should have been woth removable batterys.The extent one could actually do a lot of technical stuff with M2 will not be possible with M5.
But one thing is for sure.Gionee is paying hefty sums to useless developers in making stock roms.Uninstall gionee m2 stpck rom and put umanh leekha compact darkl rpm which is lollipop based.You will never wosh to revert back to gionee m2 stock rom.
obama, 09 Feb 2016The phone goes off on its own and reboots. Any solution?I got the same problem of apps and games refreshing back to 1st pages. But I checked for the 31 december 2015 update about 161 Mbits.
Now my M5 doesn't have this problem.
The remaining problem is about programing apps sounds .Exple: "azan pro" wich is programed to repeat the 5 calling prayers a day. The apps is installed ans ni calling Prayer......
