5.Good Camera

The device is getting armed with a 13 MP camera and a 5 MP front facing camera, the pair of cameras does a pretty good job, especially pictures taken in bright day light comes with a very good amount of detailing and clarity, however, in indoor lighting the pictures tends to be noisy.

6.Premium Design

The Gionee Marathon M5 houses a combination of metal and plastic body, which not only gives the device a premium look, but it also makes it durable. However, the devices weighs around 211 grams, which sadly makes it one of the heaviest smartphones made till date.
