This comparison was bound to come up. Infinix’s latest and greatest against TECNO’s. The fan wars have been ongoing for years and haven’t abated. Plus, people are curious. How do the two devices stack against one another? It is the Pro against the Beast, Zero 4 Plus versus Phantom 6 Plus. Who takes the shine off the other in this battle of the Pluses?
The two devices share many similarities: the 6-inch display, Gorilla Glass, RAM, main camera, and battery are some of these similarities. But then they are also different in a number of ways. Despite both being made of premium metal unibody, their designs are distinct and very different.
Fight: Zero 4 Plus versus Phantom 6 Plus
let us cut to the meat of this article and compare key features of these two big guys. It promises to be an interesting one. I have emboldened the features where each has an edge over the other.

Interesting slug-fest; isn’t it? The Zero 4 Plus beats out the Phantom 6 Plus in terms of number of supported 4G LTE bands. Its processor is also slightly clocked above that of the Phantom 6 Plus. And it has a 13 megapixel front-facing camera, against the Phantom 6 Plus’ 8 megapixel unit.
On the other hand, the Phantom 6 Plus wins in terms of internal storage and a slightly beefier battery. It also has an Iris scanner, something that the Zero 4 Plus lacks.
Which of these two devices you opt for will depend on what you need more – the extra 4G band for Glo and selfie camera or greater internal storage? Beyond that, they are pretty much evenly matched. But then, there’s the cost factor. The Zero 4 Plus costs NGN 14,000 less than the TECNO Phantom 6 Plus. Your call.
