Smartphones have come a long way from the previous age of feature phones. They have currently come a long way from just being devices to conduct calls and occassional music listening, to devices that actually provide access to everything in the world.
While there are a number of smartphones that are currently available in the market, companies such as Apple, Samsung and Sony have gained the most popularity over others with their feature-rich devices and brilliant performances.
As the market gets bigger and bigger with each passing day, more and more new device manufacturers are entering the race. Even with the big names aroud the corner, the smaller and new ones are also making their marks. And two such devices are the new Huawei Honor 3X and the other Gionee Elife S5.5.
While Huawei's new device looks enter the smartphone race as one of the better smartphones you will see in the market, Gionee has already made quite the name for itself and a big example of that can be derived via the Elife S5.5 handset with its 5.5mm thickness.
So if we were to derive a comparison between both, where do you think both the Huawei Honor 3X and ther Gionee Elife S5.5 will stand? We take a closer look at the specs of both.
