    This is the Gionee Marathon M3 rebranded. Still a good value for those in the US though. I have used a few Blu phones and all were excellent build quality and the camera’s were surprisingly good for budget phones. Also received regular OTA updates.

    5000ma what is the size of this phone, I have a 8 inch tablet with a 4500ma battery and the battery is exactly the size of a 5 inch galaxy s5 outside outside

      How do you have an 8 inch tablet the size of the S5?? The S5 is a shade under 6 inches. Unless you mean how thick it is. The size of this phone is 5.69 inches (s5 is 5.59). If you meant the depth, it is 10.4mm (S5 is 8.9mm which is what your tablet probably is).

        I think he meant the battery of his tablet is the size of a S5. (Not that I knew of any removable tablet battery) shrug…

          That’s a subjective question everyone here will say something different. I like Xiaomi and Huawei so I would say Redmi 2 or Honor 3.

      144.5 x 71.5 x 10.4 mm (5.69 x 2.81 x 0.41 in)

      galaxy s5 have 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm (5.59 x 2.85 x 0.32 in), so no big difference in size

          around 25% parcels so we can gamble.

          Gionee is actually a Chinese company, their English website is hosted in India but they are available in several Asian cities and most re-sellers. In Pakistan you can buy Qmobile which is the equivalent to Blu, they sell rebranded Gionees. For instance:

          Gionee S5.1 is the same phone as Blu Vivo Air and Qmobile Noir 7 (as well as several other brands).

            OMG! so Qmobile = Gionee = Blu ?!
            woah , u just saved me from internal lynching.
            Qmobile has come under a LOT of pressure recently and i doubt many people buy there phones here EXCEPT those with severe budget constraints
