    1. Hi, Nicodemus, please fill out the contact form on this site and we will contact you ASAP

    1. 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.
