      Binasa mo ba yung specs bago ka nagcomment? Yung m5 nga ok na ok na ang pricing dahil yung battery at mataas na camera ang habol don. May mga review ng marathon m5 sa youtube di dahil quad core ang cpu e panget na yung phone.

        It really depends siguro. The M5 is really all about the battery. The specs is like a pumped up Meizu m2 with similar Quad-core CPU but with better RAM, Screen Size, double the battery and double the price too. Maybe it would have been more palatable at 9,999 but ok na din, if you value battery life over high end specs. Good enough for most everyday task. I will choose this over Zenfone Max, mainly because Snapdragon 410 (on Zenfone Max) is really ancient and slow (experienced it on a Galaxy Grand Prime over a year ago).

        Hopefully, Unbox could get a unit for review. Would love to see if it could top Lenovo P1’s @15 hours+ on PCMark’s battery benchmark.

        Marathon M5 is much more cheaper and way better than Lenovo’s Vibe P1. RAM 3GB and Battery of 6020maH 🙂

    The Gionee Elife E8 has the latest camera sensor from Omnivision, even better than the one in OP2. And this has OIS! The rest of the specs is mindblowing! This is really expensive but I really would love to get myself one of this. Amazing phone!

    Some have good specs, but again the pricing is not aggressive to penetrate the local market.
