Tecno Phantom 9 vs Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus Comparison
There are clearly pronounced differences between the Phantom 9 and the Pouvoir 3 Plus. From the display, while both device has same AMOLED panel, the P9 seems to have the upper hand; Full-HD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) as against HD+ (720 x 1548). Also the 9 has it fingerprint scanner hidden in the display, while the 3 Plus still maintains the user rear-placed fingerprint scanner.
Except you wanna dig into netty gritty, the camera setup on both device seems fairly same, except the fact that the 9 should of course have better imaging and control, than the Power 3 Plus, and not to mention the use of a larger 32-megapixel selfie sensor on the TP9.
CPU wise, the Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 SoC is not much of a difference or even higher than the MT6762 Helio P22. But while RAM size is maxed at 6GB on the Phantom 9, Pouvoir 3 Plus stopped at just 4GB. And finally battery, which the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus provides almost twice the battery size on the Phantom 9.
