Comparison of smartphones is a healthy way of demystifying specifications, debunking claims and helping consumers concisely choose smartphones according to their needs.
Today, the Tecno Camon C9 will be pitted against the Infinix Zero 3; two camera giants slugging it out in a battle of specs and practical tests.

The choice of these two devices is informed by their similarities and contrasting in this case will put things in a better light. There are basic features that i look for in smartphones before settling for them.

These parameters will be used for measuring these two devices. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you would have made up your mind on which one of the two devices is best suit for your needs.


Round 1;Speed

Expatiating on this particular point is a waste as you have felt the pain of device lag and having to wait for seconds that seem like hours for a “smartphone” to perform a simple task.

The Tecno Camon C9 has a 2GB RAM and Octa-Core processor while Infinix Zero 3 has a 3GB RAM and an Octa-Core processor too. Maybe the 1GB disparity makes it unfair to compare, but they are in the same league,and so they still must face each other.

The two phones booted up at nearly the same time, but Tecno Camon C9 was 1-second faster to beat the general 1 minute 9 seconds and 42 milliseconds start time.

I would have added the number of apps that had to stay open for these devices to freeze up, but trust me both never freeze.


Winner : Tecno Camon C9.


Round 2;Design

I particularly love the design of these two devices. They both have flaws, but they work nevertheless, mixing style and functionality.

The Infinix Zero 3 is surprisingly light and has a smooth feel to it that feels fragile, but the squared edges provide a firm grip.
Rounded edges in the Tecno Camon C9 are a beauty to look at but make grip an eternal struggle of hand muscles. And it far outweighs the Zero 3.


Winner : Infinix Zero 3.


Round 3;Camera

The Infinix Zero 3 spots a 20.7 MP back camera as against 13 MP for Camon C9. Where the selfie camera of the Zero 3 is 5 MP, the Camon C9 is 13 MP in the front also.

This might look like unhealthy competition on the part of the Camon C9 based on the numbers, but in case you have not heard, the quality of a phone’s camera is independent of its megapixel. So a smartphone with a high megapixel does not guaranty great images.

Pictures taken under different light settings will be the judges in this round.


Winner : Infinix Zero 3.


Round 4;Battery

In reviewing both devices, I ran comprehensive battery tests and judgement will still be based on this as the batteries of the two devices have not worn out in any way.

In reviewing the Infinix Zero 3 , it took the 3030 mAh battery 3 hours to a 100% from being flat. And it lasted 5 hours and 6 minutes of intensive usage before complete shutdown.
The 3000 mAh battery of the
Tecno Camon C9 on the other hand, filled up from zero in 2 hours 25 minutes. Under a more intense use, it lasted 6 hours and 10 minutes before flattening out.


Winner : Tecno Camon C9.


Round 5;Display

Both phones have 1080p displays. And it has been a real hard task for me to compare the two displays. They’re both good. The Infinix Zero 3 remember boasts of Corning Gorilla 3 protection.


Winner : Infinix Zero 3.


Round 6;Software

The Infinix Zero 3 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with XUI while the TECNO Camon C9 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS.
I really loved XUI. And you all know I have issues here and there with HiOS. But Infinix is shifting from XUI to what they’ll be calling XOS. Infinix Zero 3 will be receiving XOS which is based on Android 6.0.
I have seen XOS and it is pretty dope. Like very different, a lot more intuitive than HiOS, and it keeps lock-screen notifications which TECNO’s HiOS has unfortunately done away with.


Winner : Infinix Zero 3.


Round 7;Audio

I love the C9’s speakers. I feel like they have really good clarity. The Zero 3’s speakers weren’t really much.


Winner : Tecno Camon C9


Round 8;LED Notifications

Both phones have notification lights. The Zero 3 has its on the top next to the front camera flash. The Camon C9 has its on the home button.


Conclusion

A 20.7 MP camera on the Infinix Zero is seemingly no match for the Tecno Camon C9 until it springs up surprises in other departments to cover this seeming deficiency.
This comparison of two beautiful devices is not a battle for the best per se, it just lays the facts — which are specs in this case — bare for your consideration.

As I stated earlier, the two devices work for me, but when a choice is imperative, I hope this article serves as a guide to picking the right device that suits you.
