Furthermore, the LG Q6 comes with a superior processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 (MSM8490)) clocked at 1.4 GHz accompanied by Adreno 505 GPU.
On the other hand, the Micromax Canvas Infinity is powered by a Quad-core, Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 processor with 1.4 GHz clock speed. Also, it is accompanied by Adreno 308 GPU.
