Battery life is one aspect of phones where we yearn for improvements. Though, we mostly always fail to admit it, and help doesn’t seem forthcoming. Remember the Gionee M5 we profiled on MobilityArena sometime ago, it was slated to come with a massive 6000 mAh battery. Amazingly, this was fitted into a slim 8.9 inch thick body.
GSMdome did a battery test of this phone and compared it’s stamina with that of other devices. The tests where based on video playback, with brightness set at 50% and WiFi turned ON. The video was also set to loop continously. The Gionee M5 lasted an amazing 22 hours and 24 minutes. Below are charts of other brands tested alongside the Gionee M5.
Please note that the Allview P8 Energy is also the Gionee M5 rebranded for the Romanian market.
Notice that this phone even beats the Nokia Lumia 1520 in battery stamina.
The results shown are impressive. The issue we may have is that the phone is very hefty, weighing in with 212 g.
