Gionee M5 Mini Features, Specs & Price in Nigeria

Recently launched in Nigeria, the Gionee M5 Mini is the latest addition to its maker’s battery-heavy series of smartphones and is designed to appeal to young users who find it hard to leave their smartphones even for a moment. The device, whose full name is the Gionee Marathon M5 Mini, is the mini version of the powerful Gionee M5 smartphone and comes with a huge 4,000mAh battery and a quad-core processor.

Gionee M6 Plus is the latest member of the Marathon M Series.

Display and Camera

Although described as mini, the Gionee M5 Mini still packs a large 5-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

Buyers will be right to expect decently enjoyable viewing since this display is based on In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, which ensures nice viewing from different angles.

The M5 Mini packs an 8-megapixel snapper on its rear to help you capture those exciting moments.

The 5-megapixel front-facing snapper should also enable spectacular shots on the Gionee M5 Mini, especially when you consider that it comes with a feature that enables you enhance facial beauty.

Performance and OS

The Gionee M5 Mini is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor which supposedly promises faster task execution since it uses the Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) strategy, rather than the more widely-used Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC).

The CPU paces along at speeds up to 1.3 GHz and is supported by decent 2 GB of RAM. The smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, topped by Gionee’s Amigo UI 3.0 skin.

Other Features

The major highlight of the Gionee M5 Mini is its 4,000mAh battery that is expected to support up to 18 hours of talk time, 22 hours of music playback, or almost two weeks in standby time.

In addition, the Gionee M5 Mini comes with a power saving mode and supports fast charging technology which gives you nearly two days standby time after a 10-minute charge.

You get generous onboard storage of 16 GB, which is extendable by another 128 GB with the use of a microSD card. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, 3G and Wi-Fi.
