Gionee marathon M3 Android smartphone comes with 8-megapixel rear camera, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM & a massive, long-lasting 5000mAh Battery.
This is in a bid to join the world’s smartphone manufacturers who are trying to create a device that will have the characteristics and functionality of a flagship. In such cases, the body of the device is usually made as thin as possible and the design is sleek.
Usually, people, who buy flagship or high-end smartphones are engaged in office activities, so the battery power is not very important for them, because there is always an outlet within one’s hand reach.
How about those, who travel often, regardless, for work or leisure and there is no power outlet? You either carry a power bank, or go for a smartphone that has it all – functionality and long-lasting battery.
If you need a smartphone that combines decent level of performance and a long time between charges, Gionee offers a very attractive option – Marathon M3. The gionee smartphone M3 on jiji is a good catch for those “battery worried’ consumers.
