Infinix Note 6 has an almost similar design with its predecessor of last year – Infinix Note 5. The Infinix company did not put any design like notch or whatever on the screen display. Rather, the regular bezel surrounded the OLED panel. And you have an option of three colors to this device: black, blue and brown.

However, on the other hand, Tecno Phantom 9 has one of the best designs you’ve ever seen this year. Although it’s made of a plastic, but you will easily fall in love with it on a first glance due to its beautiful aurora color.

Moreover, there is only a very tiny bezel surrounding the dewdrop notch OLED panel, so you’ll have a large view of the screen. Overall, the Tecno Phantom 9 has an excellent body design over the Infinix Note 6.

Dimensions: Tecno Phantom 9 – 158.52* 75.3* 7.85mm vs Infinix Note 6 – 154.2 x 74.5 x 7.7 mm

Weight: Tecno Phantom 9 – 179g vs Infinix Note 6 – 163g

The Infinix Note 6 is smaller, sleeker and light weighted. So for a one hand operation, the Infinix Note 6 has it.

Here on this segment, both Tecno and Infinix made a tremendous improvement. A laudable achievement for the extra mile to give to their consumers a panel that is worth it. At least for once let’s get an Amoled screen not everyday IPS LCD panel.

Just in case you don’t know, Amoled panels are the best in the industry. Because devices using the OLED panel usually have the brightest and most color-accurate screens with as little color shift as possible.

So both devices have a tie on this segment. Except you will go for the Tecno Phantom 9 because of its larger screen size, 6.4″-inch.

Hardware & Software

There’s really not too much we can talk about here. Since both Tecno Phantom 9 and Infinix Note 6 are powered by the same chipset – Mediatek Helio P35.

The truth is that as impressive as these two smartphones are, a Qualcomm Snapdragon or a more advanced Mediatek chipset would have done perfect justice to these phones. However, since that wasn’t the case, let’s manage the mediatek chipset we have. But many consumers are disappointed.

Moreover both smartphones are running on Androids latest version – Android 9.0 Pie on top their own software. While Tecno paired the Android 9.0 Pie with its latest own software HiOS 5.

Infinix on the other hand, paired the Note 6 with Android 9.0 Pie + XOS 5.0

However as far as memory is concerned, keep in mind that the Tecno Phantom 9 has 6GB RAM + 128 GB internal storage, while the Infinix Note 6 has 64GB internal storage with 4GB RAM. So if internal storage is of great importance to you and you’re also a heavy app user, then the Tecno Phantom 9 will suit your needs better.


On this category, we have a tie once again. Tecno Phantom 9 and Infinix Note 6 have the same tri-lens rear camera. Their rear camera are placed vertically.

Tecno Phantom 9:

• 16MP as the main camera
• 8MP ultra -wide lens
• 2MP depth sensor

Infinix Note 6:

• 16MP as the main camera
• 8MP ultra -wide lens
• 2MP depth sensor

However the Tecno Phantom 9 has a 32MP selfie camera with two flash lights placed at the top edges. Infinix Note 6 on the other hand, has a 16MP front camera.


Infinix Note 6 has upper hand here. With the 4000mAh capacity, you can expect nothing but a strong battery life. While Tecno phantom 9 has a battery capacity of 3500 mAh. Athouth there is a feature in the Phantom 9 that helps to minimize the usage of background apps.
