Thus, looking at the price of the handsets, both will have to comepete with each other in the market. Moreover, both the handsets come with the similar specs as well.

The Xperia C comes packed with a 5-inch TFT capacitive touch screen display and offers a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and 220 ppi pixel density. While Gionee Elife E6 features a same 5 inch display but comes with a higher 1920 × 1080 FHD resolution and better pixel density rated at 441ppi.
