The Gionee CTRL V4 packs some nice specs although at that price there are other local brand alternatives you can opt at. On the other hand, what makes the CTRL V4 a better choice is that it has a power amplifier for a better audio experience, and the Android version which is at 4.2 Jellybean, which is just behind the latest version (4.3 Jellybean) that is rolling out on some high-end phones now. Also, it's quite slim at 9.2mm.
Overall, its a good option for those audiophiles who want an affordable yet powerful phone.
