I got this phone about a month ago. I love the screen resolution,the camera quality (though it always comes with a heavy size 2MB upwards), the battery life is superb.
The weight of the phone however seems heavy at first handling after I switched from my Innjoo One HD but now am used to the weight.
One thing that I do not like about the phone is Response. It doesn't cope with a fast user like me,apps shut down anyhow especially google apps like Gmail, Google map and other apps.
Most times returning to the home screen makes the phone hang and the apps have to reset.
The 16GB internal memory is not fully available to the user as the phone inbuilt apps keeps updating and eating up the space. Like 6GB would eventually be available to the user.
I hope it would be able to upgrade the coming Marshmallow.
I give it a 6/10 based on the price.
Actually i have a Marathon M3 and I plan to switch to M5.
According to the battery specifications i need some clarification if someone can.
Capacity : M3 5000 mAh - M5 6020 mAh.
Stand-by : M3 Up to 792 h - M5 Up to 684 h.
Talk time(3G) : M3 Up to 32 h 30 min - M5 Up to 28 h.
1-Despite the power difference. M3 beats M5 in term of battery endurance , Please can you confirm this difference ?
2-The M5 camera is really better than M3 ?

I swapped SIM twice it didn't work
When I switch off and switch on phone it works on hsd but only for few seconds
Then again it stops working, and the biggest issue is once if internet disconnects it doesn't start easy again.
I had bought it from flipcart, thanks for flipcart they accepted my refund request.
Good day all,sorry for the initial typos. I meant I cannot access but my call and message logs. I am hoping its a setting problem! Please ,does anyone have a solution for me? Thanks
Good day all. I just got a Gionee M5 and I can access my Call logs or message logs. I have several missed calls and I can access the numbers. Pls what do I do? Thanks you
I'm having a challenge with recording video with my M5, the visual will be okay but only a hissing sound in place of the audio. I tried using other video apps and it had same issue.Please a solution?
AnonD-481326, 28 Dec 2015There is no need to activate any 3G. It should automatically work with your normal mobile top... morewhen i use internet, it shows ev in the top and not 2x. actually 2ev, one is network and other is data.
Also speed is network dependent. Maybe you are in a place where data congestion is more.
I get great speeds
reliance does not activate evdo automatically for all n sundry. you need to send them a request
as follows :
active HSD ( high speed data ) by sending sms :
Postpaid Type HSD send it to 55444
Prepaid Type HSD send it to 55333
AnonD-149483, 27 Dec 2015if you have activated evdo then u get 3g speedThere is no need to activate any 3G. It should automatically work with your normal mobile top up even without extra 3G pack top up. But it seems CDMA 3G EVDO does not work at full speed in Gionee Marathon M5. All opinions point that 2G only works ( 1X speeds only and not 3G speeds). There may be some hardware problems in Gionee Marathon M5 for CDMA 3G EVDO speed.
I want to buy Gioneee Marathon M5 because I am using MTS CDMA and AIRTEL GSM. I prefer MTS CDMA for 3G EVDO because it is cheap, fast, seamless and has wider area coverage for mobile Data than AIRTEL in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra. (Currently I am using ZTE N919D. It works at very good speed for MTS CDMA 3G EVDO, but it has a poor 1GB RAM only.)
Many opinions point that Gionee Marathon M5 does not have full speed in CDMA 3G (EVDO) even by using the latest CDMA OMH SIMs also. Please tell me whether MTS CDMA 3G (EVDO) works at full speed in Gionee Marathon M5. I am delaying the purchase only for this clarification. Someone please clarify me on this point.
The phone doesn't have colour display to differentiate the SIM cards icon display on standby mode.
