Just yesterday ordered for marathon M5.

I think above 2 model are full proof when compared with M5.

Bcoz its having 1) octacore latest mediatek 6753,
Also 2) fingerprints sensor, and important is 3)fast charging, 4) full HD

Customer won’t gets disheartened just bcoz m5+ battery is smaller by 1000mAh.

Volte support is software feature .

Now its better than moto x play in term of performance except 21MP camera on moto x play.
