Gionee Marathon M3 is India's first Android smartphone to feature a 5000 mAh battery

The Marathon M3 is a mid-range, affordable device, and is India’s first smartphone to come with a 5000 mAh battery, being able to provide a talk-time of up to 32.4 hours, or a stand-by time of up to 32.8 days. As you’d expect, the M3 is not a thin handset (like others made by Gionee), as it measures 144.5 x 71.45 x 10.4 mm.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Gionee Marathon M3 sports a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, further featuring: an 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, dual SIM capabilities, a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. The new smartphone should be released in India soon for around $210 (12,999 INR). At the moment, it’s not clear if the Marathon M3 will be launched in other markets. Would you buy it if it were available in your region?

Seems like a solid smartphone. It isn't even that thick for having such a huge battery *cough* Droid Turbo *cough*...

Its 144.5 x 71.45 x 10.4 mm Turbo is 143.5 x 73.3 x 11.2 mm Only a 0.8 mm difference But the extra 1100 mAh does makes it impressive Also phone OEMs need to move to using Wh now so we can compare them easier

The fact is there are quite a bit of phones with huge batteries, they are mostly in China though. The Highscreen boost 2 (Russian) has a 6000mah version avaliable. The Elephone P5000 is phone coming out soon with a 5650mah battery. The Gionee V188 already has a 5200mah battery. The Eton Raytheon also has a 5000mah battery.

Gionee is so trying hard to be premium-ish. Still expensive for the hardware.

In India, both Moto G (2nd gen) and this phone are priced same (even M3 may launch at still cheaper price as promo).. Specs are almost same too.. So NOT really costly (except of course xiaomi phones) as it looks...
