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.

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.
