    • I would buy the Infinix X601 because it runs on Android 6.0, it has a fingerprint sensor, better front camera & a larger battery. The only thing missing in from Infinix X601 that is available in Infinix X600 LTE is 4G connectivity.

  1. Jumia is a great place to buy any phone from-its where i get all of my phones from whenever i need an upgrade.
    I would recommend Tecno Camon CX. Its affordable, and worth it.
    Get it from Jumia today!

      • I need a phone that has a good camera with a fast program. And a lasting battery. Which one could you recommend?? A budget of 10-15k
