Meet Gionee Marathon M3
Gionee experimented with a massive 4200mAh battery in its Marathon M2 smartphone. The Chinese company has already released its successor, the Gionee Marathon M3. The Marathon M3 is the first Android smartphone we've come across that boasts of a 5,000mAh battery.
Look and Feel
The Marathon M3 is not distinctive with respect to its candybar design, and Gionee has decided to keep things simple. The design is purely utilitarian, which is not bad at all. At the heart of it all is the massive battery, which is unsurprisingly non-removable. The sheer size of this battery contributes to the phone's 10.4mm thickness and 180.3g weight. We are not complaining about this heft because it is actually reassuring, and the Marathon M3 does feel comfortable to hold and use with one hand.
The Gionee Marathon M3 stays true to its promise of providing great battery life. Additionally, the phone could be a great asset if you are someone who watches a lot of videos on the move. The camera is also a pretty competent performer.
