Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the Gionee M6 Lite comes in a metallic back design with narrow bezels on the sides. It also comes with other interesting features like an advanced encryption, offering a triple security system to keep your phone secured. The Gionee M6 Lite is a budget variant phone that was downgraded from the M6 to give users an additional option of a low-cost smartphone. The Gionee M6 Lite is a successor to M6 and M6 Plus launched earlier in the year.
On the other hand, the Infinix Hot 4 Pro X556 is slightly different from the previously made Hot 4. The back is still textured, but the pattern is very much different. The colour options also changed with the Infinix Hot 4 Pro available in Mysterious Blue, Glossy Silver, Champagne Gold, or Anthracite Grey. The Hot 4 Pro adds super-fast 4G LTE to the Hot 4.
