Comparison Between Tecno R7 smartphone and Infinix Zero Smartphone

Tecno R7 have been in the market for a while now and its still selling in numbers due to the good features it comes packed with. Therefore we are putting it side by side with Infinix's newly announced smartphone known as the Infinix Zero which is scheduled for release in the 2nd week of August 2014.


Infinix devices have always been regarded as one with a premium feel and in the real market sense, its one of those devices that tries to get market share from Tecno.


In our usual fashion, we provide you with a color coded table with the basic specifications of the smartphones and then make small comments on some of the specs.

The Green coloured box specify a spec that is considered a strength relative to the other smartphone and in similar fashion, the lilac coloured box shows a weakness with respect to the other device.

As for Tecno R7, the operating system its shipped with from the manufacturer is Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 but can be upgraded to KitKat. However, the Infinix Zero comes with a KitKat 4.4.2 right from the box.

From the spec comparison, it should be easy to determine which of the devices is better and why one should get the other based on specs only. That being said, you should keep in mind that Tecno offers a powerbank, a smart phone case which can of course be a reason to go for the Tecno R7.

At this time, the Infinix Zero isn't available for sale so we don't know for sure if it will come with a free smart cover and a powerbank. Also, for the same reason we can't compare processor benchmark values for both devices but it will be added as soon as the Infinix Zero becomes available.

One area that the Infinix Zero gets our attention is in the price and we can say that for a N15,800 margin with respect to Tecno R7, one can easily buy a powerbank (because battery power is really quite low) and a flip case and still have some change. 

What are your thoughts? Do you think the Infinix Zero is a good catch and a worthy contender? Drop your comments below. 

Of course, a full review of the Infinix Zero would be done once we have the device in our hands.
