Infinix Hot 6 Vs Tecno Pouvoir 2: Best Value for Your Money
You noticed it right? That the major three difference between the Tecno Pouvoir 2 and the Infinix Hot 6 are;
- Camera and
Given that brand loyalty, choice of UI (Infinix XOS vs Tecno HiOS) and storage options (Infinix Hot 6 Pro) is not a challenge.
Infinix Hot 6 Vs Tecno Pouvoir 2: Processor
As mentioned before, the CPUs are the major differentiating factors between these two smartphones. While Tecno decided to go with a quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor along with Mali-T720 GPU, Infinix went for a more powerful 1.4Ghz octa-core Snapdragon 425 CPU along with Adreno 308 GPU. While Mediatek CPU is not a bad choice for Mid-range smartphone, Snapdragon CPU has been most preferred over Mediatek CPU, especially considering the fact that it 4-cores vs 8-cores.
Infinix Hot 6 Vs Tecno Pouvoir 2: Camera
Camera is not much of a difference between these two smartphone because, both device’s camera literally does same thing using different means. Infinix Hot 6 Pro offers Bokeh effects using a 13+2-megapixel set up at the back, while Tecno Pouvoir 2 offer same Bokeh effect, but through a software-tweaked single 13-megapixel sensor at the back.
Turning to the front, Infinix makes use of a 5-megapixel sensor on the Hot 6, while Tecno decided to go for a larger 8-megapixel sensor. But both unit still support FaceID.
Infinix Hot 6 Vs Tecno Pouvoir 2: Battery
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 lost the processor battle completely to the Infinix Hot 6, well, it time to payback. The Pouvoir 2 smartphone offer a battery capacity that is 1000mAh larger than the Hot 6 (4000mAh battery on the Hot 6 vs 5000mAh battery on Pouvoir 2). Note however that, that extra 1000mAh battery battery could make a huge difference, especially if Tecno is able to optimized it HiOS and vice-versa if the contrary is the case.
In conclusion, I will end up picking the Infinix Hot 6 because of it Snapdragon 425 CPU, and if the 2GB RAM and 16GB storage on the Hot 6 sound small for you, you can also opt-in for the the Hot 6 Pro, which comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage.
