One will ask if the think before releasing or naming this device they answer will be YEs
Gionee has gone stark raving mad and decided that the way forward is
to churn out every sort of variant of the Marathon M5. Here is the full
list (as at press time) of available M5 variants:
- M5 Plus
- M5 Lite
- M5 Enjoy
- M5 Mini
As you can see, it seems that there is a Marathon M5 for everyone.
And we might just wake up tomorrow to the announcement of another M5
Here is the thing. This sort of behaviour used to be the forte of
Samsung. And to some extent, it still is. After all, there is a Galaxy
S6, and then there is S6 edge, S6 edge+, as well as S6 Active and S6
Duos. Before then, there was a Galaxy S5, S5 Neo, S5 Mini, S5 Duos, S5
Active and S5 Sport, among others. See what I mean? It is a mess.
How does anyone keep up with all these variants of the same device?
Plus, that strategy doesn’t seem to be quite working for Samsung. In my
opinion, it creates confusion. This sort of thing just confuses buyers. I
do not know if Gionee is going to get more smartphones sold this way.
Time will tell; no?
