[sg_popup id=”1509″ event=”inherit”][/sg_popup]
As it stands now, Phantom 9 is the hottest Tecno smartphone in the Nigerian market because of its beautiful design and the on-display fingerprint scanner. The phone measures 158.52 x 75.3 x 7.85mm and has a trendy plastic body design. It will be very difficult for you not to fall in love with this phone’s design when you see and touch it.
Infinix Hot S4 Pro, on the other hands, also comes in fancy plastic body design and have almost the same features and design as the lower version called Infinix Hot S4. The phone has almost the same dimension (156 x 75 x 7.9 mm) as the Tecno Phantom 9 with many other color options like Nebula Blue, Space Gray, and Twilight Purple to choose from, unlike the Phantom 9 with only Aurora color. This device sports the usual rear fingerprint scanner, instead of the in-display fingerprint sensor as seen in Tecno Phantom 9.
As far as the design is concerned, Tecno Phantom 9 is taller in height, has a larger display (which we will explain below), and weighs more than Infinix Hot S4 Pro. But for those that prefer a device that has a lighter weight, no doubt the Hot S4 Pro is good to go.
In terms of the display, Phantom 9 host big 6.39-inch AMOLED display while the Infinix Hot S4 Pro sports a smaller 6.22-inch IPS LCD display. In case you don’t know, AMOLED panels are far better than IPS LCD panels because they have the highest color accuracy and the brightest color screens in the market. Not only that, the power consumption of the battery on AMOLED display is at minimal when compared to IPS LCD screens. Furthermore, the Phantom 9 display is fully protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. But, the display on both phones has dewdrop notch housing the front-facing camera. So with these points, you will agree with me that Tecno Phantom 9 is better in terms of display.
The camera department is the main selling point of both devices, especially selfie cameras. The Phantom 9 scores high in terms of the rear camera over Infinix Hot S4 Pro. Although both Android smartphones flaunt a triple rear camera setup, but the Phantom 9 performs better than S4 Pro. Below is the breakdown of their camera setup:
Tecno Phantom 9 Camera Setup:
- 16MP as the main shooter
• 8MP ultra-wide lens
• 2MP depth sensor
Infinix Hot S4 Pro Camera Setup:
- 13MP as the main camera
• 8MP depth sensor
• 2MP assistant camera
Now for the selfie freaks, both smartphones come with a massive 32MP front-facing camera capable of taking good quality selfie shots. But even with the same camera module, Phantom 9 still beats Infinix Hot S4 in terms of taking a better picture at night because of the two LED flashes available. Infinix Hot S4 Pro, on the other hand, uses screen light for night pictures which is not that effective when compared to Phantom 9.
When it comes to performance, both phones run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Tecno Phantom 9 is driven by the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, while the Infinix Hot S4 Pro is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 chipset.
While Phantom 9 hosts a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, the Infinix Hot S4 Pro comes with a 6GB RAM and a lower 64GB of internal storage. However, both internal storages can be expanded via MicroSD card. So, in this department, Tecno Phantom 9 takes the lead.
Tecno Phantom 9 and Infinix Hot S4 Pro Price Comparison
In as much as Phantom 9 scored the most points in terms of specs, the price doesn’t come that cheap because the phone was released as the company’s best flagship device, while Hot S4 Pro is Infinix’s mid-range smartphone. The Tecno Phantom 9 was launched at the price tag N77,000 in Nigeria which is approximately $214. The Infinix Hot S4 Pro is also sold for $167 or about N60, 000 in Nigeria.
