The search for the best smartphones is constantly on. When it comes to Nigeria, two smartphones brands dominate the scene: Infinix Mobility and Tecno Mobile.
Infinix Mobility and Tecno Mobile are sister products of Transsion Holdings and today we will compare the Infinix Hot 7 Pro (2GB version) with the Tecno Pouvour 3.
Both devices are valued around N41,000 on Jumia. It is Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3
Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3: Size and Display
Both devices have a 6.2 inch notched display. Display resolution is 1500 x 720 pixel. Cameras sit on the notch and it is worth saying that both devices are 4G enabled. The body size and dimension are similar, so also the durable plastic.
Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3: Camera
If AI is the watchword then Infinix and Tecno must have used it a lot. The Infinix Hot 7 Pro has a rear 13MP primary shooter assisted by a 2MP depth sensor. Also, the selfie camera modules are also 13 MP assisted by a 2 MP depth sensor.
The Tecno Pouvoir 3, on the other hand, has a single rear camera module that houses a 13 MP module. The selfie camera module is also 13MP. Both devices have LED flashlight to assist photography.
The comparison here is quite close, but If the 2 MP depth sensor on the Infinix Hot 7 Pro counts for anything then, the Infinix has the day here.
Winner: Infinx Hot 7 Pro
Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3: Hardware Components (Processor, GPU)
The processor happens to be the brainbox of any computer. For smartphones, the processor determines camera specifications, memory space, network etc.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro uses the MediaTek MT6757T Helio P25 chipset. The chipset has 8 cores for smooth operations with a top speed of 2.4GHz. 4 of the 8 cores has 2.4 GHz and the other 4 cores are clocked at 1.6GHz. The GPU is powered by MaliMT880MP2.
Tecno Pouvoir 3, on the other hand, uses a MediaTek MT6739 processor. The chipset has 4 cores clocked at 1.28GHz speed and a PowerVR GE8100 GPU. The speed is quite poor given that it is a 4G device. Other devices within this range usually have 1.5GHz processors.
Winner: Infinix Hot 7 Pro.
Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3: Memory, Storage and OS
Both devices have 2 GB of RAM space and 32 GB of storage space. There is support for Memory card up to 128GB. The Infinix Hot 7 Pro has a 3GB of RAM space variant.

Winner: Infinix Hot 7 Pro (Based on OS).
Infinix Hot 7 Pro vs Tecno Pouvoir 3: Battery
Battery life is a very important smartphone feature in Nigeria. In fact, for most persons, it is the only specification they need.
Tecno Pouvoir is a power series hence it is not surprising to see a 5000mAh battery onboard the Tecno Pouvoir 3. The battery life is also known to be legit.
Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes with a 4000mAh battery, enough to last 2 days. None of the devices has fast charging. The Android 9 OS optimizes battery more than Android 8.1 tough but the 4000mAh doesn’t come close to the 5000 mAh.
Winner: Tecno Pouvoir 3
The devices display and design are similar. Storage and RAM space are also of same specifications but the Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes out top in Processor performance. The octacore processor clocked at 2.4GHz is over 4 times faster than the 1.28 quad-core processor.
For the camera, the 2MP depth sensor also gives the Infinix Hot 7 Pro an edge over the Tecno Pouvoir 3. The Tecno Pouvoir 3 beats the Infinix Hot 7 pro in the battery department.
If you are a heavy user that loves to load many apps and multi-task then the Infinix Hot 7 Pro is what you need. The octa-core processor will make your life easy.
If you value battery life over performance then the Tecno Pouvoir 3 is better. For me though, I will take the Infinix Hot & pro anytime, any day.
