There has been a lot of debate around TECNO’s new flagship since its launch. One of our commenters asked for a comparison of the Phantom 5 with OnePlus 2 and Asus Zenfone 2. While comparison tables do not showcase real life performance and experience e.g. fluidity, ease of use, feel in the hand, audio output, camera shots, etc, we thought that would be nice and have drawn up a comparison table.

  1. Definitely the OnePlus Two is in a class of its own,a true Flagship device in every sense,but price should have also been factored into the specs equation,to show the true value proposition of the devices..

  2. OnePlus! All day and everyday! Love the UI, and i kinda have a thing for that sandstone back. Of course, the invite thingy ruins it all. If i’m to select one of these in terms of availability, specs on paper and software update history, I’d jejeli pick the Zenphone and go my way. Thanks

    BTW, Tecno can help their brand also by looking for who would do an unbiased HD video review of their device. We are tired of “feel in hand” and “you have to use this device before criticizing”

  3. The OnePlus looks like a very good one. And I have a feeling it might be cheaper than tthe TECNO.

    Plus, why were those details about TECNO not announced e.g weight and screen protection info? It makes it look as if they are hiding something sha or not proud of what they put out

  4. lol, how can you say that with the specs above? the other devices are just as good on paper

  5. I saw that too but turned a blind eye to it before someone tells me i need to come use the device physically, lift it and hit a hammer on it before i know what screen protection it uses or what it weighs.

  6. The Phantom 5 ain’t any better than the numerous offerings from a horde of other Chinese OEMs’ Mediatek SoC touting phones from UMI,Elephone,Dooge,Ulephone etc,the only stand out feature being it’s been priced way higher than these phones,the Oneplus on the other hand touts a First Tier SD 810 Chip with high grade Adreno GPU with other real PREMIUM features..IMO,the Phantom 5 is at best a high mid range device,nothing Premium about it..

  7. Wonder why the Zenfone 2 has so small a battery even though it’s actually the thickest of the bunch..

  8. Everyone is hitting on TECNO probably because of the price of the phantom 5 but I played with the phone at slot and really, that phone feels and looks premium.

    After that, it was the whole regular android joe to me but as far as build and feel is concerned, I think they have a gorgeous looking premium device.

    Only issue is the price as folks expect TECNO to be cheaper, not producing expensive phones.

  9. the 3 GB RAM/16 GB ROM variant costs $329, so it’s slightly cheaper than the Phantom 5 (NGN 70,000 ~ $350) but with half the ROM and no expandable memory. so in absolute terms, it’s cheaper, in real terms it isn’t. make of that what you will

  10. It may look and feel gorgeous,which by the way is subjective,but take that out of the equation and it becomes an average Joe like the myriad of other inexpensive Chinese Android devices,with the main CONS being that it’s relatively not cheap at all..

  11. More like it becomes an average joe like many other Android phones.

    A little this or that may make the short term experience enjoyable, but there’s nothing absolutely spectacular about any Android phone. It’s beauty is in the hand/eye of the beholder.

  12. Every phonemaker out there is guilty of this. If you remove their distinctiveness from them, what remains na??

  13. the table was edited/updated to add RAM
    maybe you should read articles and comments when they’re fresh and valid and pay attention to timestamps

  14. Specs wise all the phones are great but the oneplus one is better. Build wise phantom 5 kills them all

  15. One thing you must consider I what is being offered and at what price, as far as am concerned Asus Zenfone is the best value for money, Tecno is selling the premium feel with the mediocre chipset and finger print sensor, which doesn’t call for such an outrageous asking price but the One Plus on the other hand is the by far the best speccd out of the bunch and is definitely in a class of its own.
