    I want a phone with the best performance. I Like Honor 6X and Coolpad Cool 1 dual. I have heard that the Honor 6X phone has a slower processor than Cool1. But when it comes to updates, Huawei rolls out regular Android updates for its Honor series phones. The camera of Cool1 is damn good when compared to Honor 6x. Which phone has a fast processor and a good camera?

  3. Arun Kumar

    Lumia 830 should have been on the list.
