The Infinix Note 7 and the Tecno camon 15 Pro are the latest smartphones in the market. The two devices sporting new designs and amazing new features can be quit confusing at first. The specifications on both these are quite similar.
If you’ve read any of my past smartphone reviews you’d know that i’m a big fan of Infinix. However in this review i’m going to push the favorites game aside and say it as it is. In this review i’m going to compare the device based on 5 properties; Display, Hardware, Memory, Camera and Battery.
Both phone’s come with huge displays. The Camon 15 Pro sports a 6.53 inch IPS LCD full display with a 1080 x 2340 resolution. The Camon 15 Pro has a full display since the screen doesn’t house the front camera. This look’s really beautiful especially when watching HD movies on it.
The Note 7 comes with a slightly bigger display which is a 6.95 inches IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1640 resolution. The Note 7 however rocks the punch hole display design which means the front camera is a small dot on the top left corner of the display.
The Infinix Note 7 boasts of a more powerful chipset and hardware in general.The Note 7 rocks a Mediatek Helio G70 chipset and an Octa-core 2×2 GHZ Cortex-A75 CPU under the hood. This chipset is a beast when it comes to gaming. The chipset,CPU and the Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU run heavy games pretty smoothly without lag.
The Camon 15 Pro comes with with a Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 chipset. As for the CPU the Camon 15 runs on an Octa-Core 4×2.35 GHZ Cortex-A53 coupled with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The CPU on this phone might not be the best but it is also powerful. The phone ran smoothly as i used it.It didn’t hang and i didn’t notice any lag.It also performed really good in light gaming but not so good in heavy games.
Both devices have 128 GB of internal storage and 6 GB of RAM. The Note 7 however have 2 other variants; 64 GB/4 GB and 128 GB/4 GB of internal storage and RAM respectively.
This is where it get’s interesting. The Camon 15 Pro is the first Tecno smartphone to rock a pop front facing camera. The camera is a single 32 MP pop-up AI selfie camera.The selfie camera shoots really descent photos.As for the rear camera, the Camon 15 pro comes with a triple camera setup. The setup houses a 48 MP main camera, 5 MP ultra-wide angle sensor, 2 MP macro sensor and a low light lens is also included in the setup.The camera takes really good photos while maintaining the background and object colors. In short the pictures are really good and clear.
As for the Note 7, the front camera rocks the punch hole design. This means the selfie camera is small hole at the top left side of the display. The selfie camera is a 16 MP sensor which is actually lower than that on the Camon 15 Pro.At the rear, the Note 7 has a quad camera setup.The setup houses a 48 MP main camera, 2 MP macro camera,2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP dedicated video camera. The macro shots from this camera are amazing. The main camera also shoots good pictures with perfect color saturation.
When it comes to the battery, the Note 7 comes out on top with a 5000 mAh battery with 18 W fast charging capability. The Camon 15 comes second with a 4000 mAh battery and i don’t think it has the fast charging capability.
Both devices have a fingerprint sensor. The Note 7’s fingerprint is however side mounted whereas the Camon 15 fingerprint sensor is rear-mounted.Both devices also use a microUSB. They also have Dual Sim(Nano Sim) support. They are also 4G capable.
Both devices are really good smartphones. The Tecno Camon 15 Pro however has a better display.It’s display is really clear and the colors are beautiful to look at. The fact that it has a full display without a punch hole makes it more attractive to look at.The selfie camera on the Camon 15 Pro is also double the one on the Note 7.
On the other hand, the Note 7 has a bigger battery with fast charging capability which means you won’t have to wit for hours for a full battery. The Note 7 also has a bigger display which when combined with new more powerful chipset makes it the best when it comes to gaming.
The Tecno Camon 15 beats the Infinix Note 7 in this review. The phone has a better camera, a full display and a higher screen resolution. When it comes to gaming, it handles light gaming really well and the battery will take you for a day.
