Remember the good old days when our phones battery lasted a week? Well, nowadays is exactly the opposite. Batteries last less than a day, mainly because smartphones have large displays with stunning screen resolution that we mostly don’t need, as the naked eye cannot distinguish that many pixels per inch. Furthermore, mobile makers don’t seem to address this issue properly. Instead of focusing on battery life, they keep throwing all sorts of gimmicky specs onto their gadgets, we usually do not find practical, of use.
Gionee, a Chinese mobile maker, seems to have a rather different approach. The manufacturer has announced earlier this week a 6″ device called Gionee M5 Plus, which is equipped with a 5,025 mAh battery and fast charging feat.
Gionee M5 Plus is rather thin dual SIM device at its 8.4mm, although it is a giant, considering its 6 inches in size vivid AMOLED screen. The entire housing is made of Aluminum and complemented by a beautiful 1080p display with 2.5D curved glass at the edges.
Other specs equipping this mammoth are a 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (up to 128GB microSD card slot support), 5 and 13MP cameras, USB Type-C and 4G (VoLTE) connectivity are also included, comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the Home button and it runs on Android 5.1-based Amigo OS v3.1.
The Chinese will begin selling Gionee M5 Plus on their local market as of December 25 for 2,499 yuan, about 355 Euro / £260.
