Specs War!! Infinix Zero 3 VS TECNO Phantom 5

Posted by

It’s hard to argue that the two hottest and trending mobile phones in Nigeria right now are not the Infinix Zero 3 and the TECNO Phantom 5. The reasons behind this are not far fetched. TECNO already is the biggest mobile phone brand in Nigeria, while the Infinix is her younger sibling focused in making value for money devices.
We thought to compare these two great devices side and side. Who knows? One may outsmart the other in this fight. See the comparison below:

Infinix Zero 3 X552 TECNO Phantom 5
Display: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 400 PPI. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Display: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 400 PPI. Corning Gorilla Glass 3
MeidiaTek Helio X10 64-bit Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 MediaTek MT6753 64-bit Octa-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
20.7 MP camera with dual LED flash and 5 MP front with flash 13 MP camera with LED flash and 8 MP front with flash
16 GB/32 GB internal storage. Plus microSD, up to 128 GB 32 GB internal storage. Plus microSD, up to 128 GB

No FingerPrint sensor FingerPrint sensor
3030 mAh battery 3000 mAh battery
N46,000 (16 GB version) N70,000

Whew!! That was close right? 🙂 It is surprising to see that the Infinix Zero beats the TECNO Phantom 5 in terms of processing power and camera. Even the battery is slightly higher in capacity (The experience stands to change in real life usage).

Both phone have the same display, RAM and 4G LTE. The only standing difference is the fingerprint sensor of the TECNO. If you had the chance, which of these two would you go for?

  1. Looking at the specs one maybe tempted to pick the zero 3 but truth be told, phantom looks more premium. I am in love with the design

  2. close but I’d pick the 32 GB ROM Zero 3. would be nice to have a fingerprint scanner but the cheaper price and faster chipset outweigh the lack of one

  3. In as much as the Infinix zero 3 is more value for money,it’s a very ugly looking device IMO and as a phone’s physical appeal is paramount to me,if I can splurge the cash I would get the Phantom Z..

  4. lol, so form over function? a phone’s aesthetics are way down the list on my scale of preference. functionality & repairability/durability are more important to me. i guess it’s different for you

  5. Sure,I meant the Phantom 5,of course the functions matters too but if I don’t like the looks of a device no matter how good of a phone it is I ain’t buying,I mean am supposed to be looking at it all the time and an ugly device irritates the h*ll out of me..

  6. Specs are all good and well is like watching paint dry. What I’d really like to know is how they function and how good they are in the hands of real people, moreso given their respective prices.

  7. The thing many do not understand is that Tecno made a flagship in 2015 that surprised everyone….

  8. i had been waiting to get a phone for Mrs for a while and i had my eyes set on the infinix note 2. The 1gb ram(cos she has a note 1 already) was a big setback. I felt really bad buying a downgraded ram all in the name of new device. so i thought, dammit, i will just get the zero 3 and be sure of everything upgraded but alas, i got to the market and i saw this beautiful device i couldn’t get my eyes off…well, technically not me but my friend….THE TECNO CANON c8 or so.
    you guessed right, i got the c8. the ram was the same but considering we thought infinix was the king of budget, this tecno blew the infinixes i was considering out of the water. the camera was really good as far as i could tell, ram was same though and i was just like, why not?
    and to the main topic of this post, TECNO p5 all the way, the price is justified considering the premium look of the phone. you need to hold the infinix to see how ugly that device is in real life. what the heck is wrong with those guys at infinix??? are they becoming greedy or losing focus like the owners of slot??? they need to go back to the drawing board asap.
    by the way, i checked all phones out at 3c hub, awolowo way. phantom 5 was still 70,000 ( price unchanged unlike slot that now sells at 80,000). dollar fluctuating my b*tt

  9. Am having the Techno phantom5 which is my first ever techno and am really enjoying it. Infinix zero3 is ok but it look very horrible

  10. If only infinix could employ good designers. I so love the tecno design and infinix specs. That infinix ugly no be small. If I am tryna be cost effective, I would go for infinix but if I have cash to splash, I would go for the tecno.

  11. Infinix 03 is awesome men, 32 gb rom and finger print detect is no big deal. I would rather die with Infinix 03 because it is cost effective, elegance, smooth and beautiful. Tecno phantom 5 should fix their ugly device.

  12. Right you are just looking at the picture up there get a video on and about the phone,the both I mean and u will see the zero 3 is actually a bomb only for the fingerprint sensor, zero whooped phantom 5 ass
