Infinix Hot 8 vs Tecno Phantom 9 specs and price comparison

You probably must have heard about the latest Infinix Android smartphone in town and one of the hottest Tecno smartphone in the Nigeria market. But in case you are not aware, I am talking about the latest Infinix Hot 8 and Tecno Phantom 9. These two devices are really trending and picking any of them wouldn’t be a bad idea. The two android smartphones come with beautiful designs and some upgraded specs befitting 2019 trends, such as notched display, decent storage capacity, upgraded camera sensors, improved performance, and solid battery capacities.

Although, some might say it is unfair to compare the Tecno Phantom 9 ( Tecno’s flagship device) with Infinix Hot 8 which is a mid-range android smartphone because the two devices are not targeting the same market segment. But both devices have similar appealing design and specs that users may find worthy of comparison. While Tecno Phantom 9 price in Nigeria is a bit high, Infinix Hot 8 is quite affordable. Both devices are equipped with 8MP and 32MP front camera sensors respectively, housed in the waterdrop notches.

Battery wise, Infinix Hot 8 comes with a better battery capacity than the Tecno’s Phantom 9 for those that prefer a phone with ample battery life. While the Hot 8 enjoys better battery life, the Phantom 9 comes fitted with an in-display fingerprint scanner which is one of the top trending 2019 technology for smartphones. In fact, no need to bore you with long talk, check out the full specs comparison and the price differences in a tabular form below.
