TECNO Spark 6 vs Infinix Smart 4 Plus: Where the Spark 6 Has the Advantage
The Spark 6 brings a bigger display to the fore, with a good screen resolution and a decent aspect ratio. This means that users can enjoy some of their favourite games, movies and social media apps on a larger display that offers better image clarity.
It brings a 5,000mAh battery to the fray with a faster charging rate, as its fast-charging technology is rated at 18W. It also offers more RAM and onboard storage than its counterpart.
In the camera department, it offers an extra rear camera and has sensors with better-looking numbers than the Smart 4 Plus. However, we should know that camera comparisons are not just a game of numbers so higher numbers may not offer a better photography experience.
TECNO Spark 6 vs Infinix Smart 4 Plus: Where the Smart 4 Plus Has the Advantage
The Smart 4 Plus is a cheaper offering with a better design and beautiful plastic finish. It is lighter and more compact, making it easier to carry around, as it also offers 4G support, meaning that users can now enjoy fast data transfer speeds while surfing the web.
It also brings the Android 10 OS to the fore and boasts a massive 6,000mAh battery that keeps this device powered all day.
TECNO Spark 6 vs Infinix Smart 4 Plus: Which Smartphone Should You Opt For?
We’ve brought the Spark 6 against the slightly older Smart 4 Plus, and after all said and done, one question pops into mind, which of these smartphones should you go for and why?
The Spark 6 offers more RAM and onboard storage, with a faster charging battery, a slightly larger display and 4G technology. It also features four rear cameras with decent looking numbers and a solid selfie camera to take care of video calls.
The Smart 4 Plus, on the other hand, brings a powerful 6,000mAh battery to the fore. It is also lighter than the Spark 6 and brings a better design to the table (in my opinion). It also has the Android 10 OS taking care of its software needs and offers decent cameras and a solid chipset under its hood.
At the end of the day, the Spark 6 seems to be the better smartphone, with newer software features and more memory for users to enjoy. It also has a strong battery to support these specs and offers decent cameras for picture lovers. However, this does not take anything away from the Smart 4 Plus as a solid entry-level option for prospects who want a powerful entry-level smartphone below ₦45,000.
