Price comparison

Design

1.weight

208g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

8.4mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

160.9mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

81.2mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

109.75cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

368ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1080 x 1920px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

6"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
6.has a touch screen
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

8 x 1.3GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

3GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

64GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Has integrated LTE
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus (MediaTek MT6753)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
6.semiconductor size
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a flash
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.has a CMOS sensor
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
3.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

5020mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.Has an ultra power-saving mode
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus (Android 5.1 Lollipop)
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
3.Battery life

53h

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
4.has a battery level indicator
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has a rechargeable battery
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.Has a fingerprint scanner
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
2.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
3.supports two SIM cards
Gionee Marathon M5 Plus
A dual-SIM mobile phone can work with two SIM cards at the same time.
4.is a multi-user system
