One thing these two smartphones (Infinix Smart and Tecno Spark K7) have in common is that they mark the beginning of new smartphone series for each brand they represent and they literally target the same audience. However, they have their differences and that’s what we will be looking at in this post.
Infinix Smart quietly made its way into the smartphone market while the Tecno Spark was welcomed with a huge party.
Both devices sell for about the same price. If you are wondering which one to go for between the two, hopefully this comparison will help you make up your mind.
Let’s get started…
Design and Display
Tecno really did will in the design of the Tecno Spark K7. The Tecno Spark K7 feature an iPhone-like design which makes it stand out.
Infinix Smart on the other hand feature a design that is some how similar to that of Infinix Hot Note. The disign is not bat at all but nothing out of the ordinary.
Coming to the display, Tecno Spark feature 5.5-inch display whereas the Infinix Smart comes with 5-inch display
Both feature the same screen resolution which technically means that the 5-inch display of the Infinix Smart is packed with more pixels per inch. On paper, that means it will offer a better display quality than the Tecno K7.
Processor and Software
Both smartphones feature Android Nougat with their respective brand custom user interface. HiOS for Tecno Spark K7 and XOS for Infinix Smart.
As for the processors, both phones comes with the same MediaTek processor (MT6580M) and offer the same processor speed. The two phones are also parked with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage; expandable to up to 32 GB using Micro SD card.
Technically, both devices offer the same thing on the inside.
When it comes to camera, the Tecno K7 offer something better (in terms of mega pixels).
The Tecno Spark K7 is equipped with 13 MP rear camera with single LED flash and 5 MP front camera with soft flash.
On the other hand, the Infinix Smart comes with 8 MP rear camera with dual LED flash and 2 Mp front camera with soft flash as well.
The Spark K7 seems to have an edge over the Infinix Smart when it comes to camera, however, the Infinix Smart has dual LED flash to its advantage.
Battery and Price
In terms of battery, the Infinix Smart comes with battery that is slightly bigger than that of Tecno Spark.
Infinix Smart sports 3060 mAh battery whereas the Tecno Spark K7 is equipped with 3000 mAh battery. The difference in battery isn’t much though.
Both devices sell for about the same price with their retail prices starting from about NGN 32,000 on Jumia.
One big advantage the Tecno Spark has over Infinix Smart is in network.
Tecno Spark K7 comes without 4G network same as Infinix Smart.The Spark also comes with fingerprint scanner while the Smart doesn’t.
However, the Infinix Smart is touted to deliver the best music/audio output with features like dual stereo speakers at the front and Dirac Stereo Widening technology.
