Infinix Alpha X570 Versus Tecno Phantom AIII

So numerous the options people have when thinking of buying a smartphone. From Smartphones to phablets and even tablets, the list of available models of these devices is becoming endless.

Here we hope to do a smart review of two devices, Infinix Alpha aka X570 which is the latest phablet infinix has to offer. Its a very well built phone with very high quality.

Tecno Phantom AIII which is also the latest phablet for TECNO Mobile has the quality and features that a phablet has to offer. The quality and build is also superb.

The two devices are very good that it can become very difficult to make choice as which one to buy. This is why this comparison becomes necessary.

In our usual fashion, the comparison will be in a table format with colour codes and then a footnote to comment on some areas. I call this The Smart Comparison Format. It’s direct and concise. 

The green colour indicate strength while the yellow indicates weakness in the respective specification.

*Dimensions stated above means that the Tecno M9 is wider, longer and thinner than the Infinix Alpha. 

+Screen type stated above means that the Infinix Alpha is having a screen that is very resistant to scratch unlike the Tecno Phantom AIII which doesn’t have such screen.  

++Battery quoted have quality. In the times that we have used the Infinix Alpha about 100 days, the battery have been very solid. Though the battery power of both devices are the same, however, the behaviour in real life environment over time will tell how strong the Tecno M9 is.

Seeing the table above, it should be very easy to see which one is stronger in terms of specifications. Also, it should make it easy to make a buying decision for those that find themselves in a dilemma of some sort when it comes to choosing between the two devices.
