Flagship Tecno Phantom 8 VS Infinix Note 4 Pro: Head To Head Battle

Flagship Tecno Phantom 8 and Infinix Note 4 pro are great devices. A lot of people seem to not know the best to go for amongst these two devices. In this article, we’ll talk about both devices in details and then you can decide which one best suits your need.


Tecno Phantom 8 

Tecno Phantom 8 is an incredible device with unreal features. Definitely, the best of its kind at this point in time as no other device from the company boasts of so much. Tecno Phantom 8 uses a 5.7 inches screen with Full HD display.

Thanks to its 1080 by 1920 pixels resolution and 403 Pixels Per-square Inch (PPI). The device will surely deliver quality display just as the Infinix Note 4 that has the same screen size and resolution.The device has 20 megapixels front and back cameras with 12 megapixel and 13 megapixels configurations. The main camera is a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor with f/1.8 lens and improved low light photography.

Other features, which complement the power of the camera, include a TRI LED flash, 10X Zoom, Autofocus, portrait mode (refocus), Auto HDR, Night mode, Superpixel and smart filters.

Tecno phantom 8 is so remarkable that it matches the Samsung note 8, iPhone 8 notably with its sleek design and RAM size respectively.

Wrapped in a slimmer and lighter metal rounded-edges frame. As a luxury product, it has a 3D diamond design at the back. The device has an appealing aesthetics and architecture. This is an attempt to measure up to Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s exceptional and futuristic packaging.

Infinix Note 4 Pro

The device is equipped with a MediaTek MT6753 chipset, an Octa-core processor clocking at 1.3GHz and 2GB RAM, coupled with 16GB worth of internal storage space, you would expect the Note 4 to deliver nothing but a moderate performance and very good graphical outputs.

The Note 4 hosts a 13MP back camera with dual LED flash while on the front, you have 8MP camera. Nothing to compete yet but here’s the game changer for Note 4.

It is powered by a 4300mAh battery although 200mAh less than its predecessor: the Infinix Note 3, but much more than the Tecno phantom 8. And on the other side, there is also Infinix zero 4 that is powered by a 4gb or 6gb memory (variant).Deservedly, it would have been a Tecno phantom 8 vs iPhone 8 comparison due to its so many competitive features, but not today pals.

Now let’s place phantom 8, Infinix note 4 pro side by side and dissect. We also talked about the Infinix Zero 4 edge with amazing features in a previous article. The Zero 4 edge is a great rival.

No doubt both devices have incredible specs but with the price of Tecno phantom 8 around N150,000, someone might actually consider getting an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. The Infinix note 4 pro goes around N70,000 – N80,000 in range and much lesser to the phantom 8. Tecno devices are definitely cool and considered a high tech gadget to have.

Tecno also is known for their great battery in their devices but I’ve come to realize most flagships doesn’t do well in terms of battery, I do wonder if the smartphones companies took an oath not to give high capacity batteries to their devices.

Even at that most individuals still prefer going for the Infinix devices, I guess that’s because of their UI and their customized OS(XOS chameleon). For me, I like the Phantom 8 but in so much of a battery person, so I’ll still pick the Infinix device. Share your views on both devices in the comments.
