The Hot 10 also offers 4G support and is lighter than the Note 7, making it easier to keep in smaller spaces and carry around with more ease. Its highest storage variant, the 6GB/128GB costs about ₦30,000 less than the same variant of the Note 7.
Infinix Hot 10 vs Infinix Note 7: Where The Note 7 Gains The Edge
The Note 7 offers a larger display, albeit with the same resolution as the Hot 10, making it a great option for users who want to enjoy their favourite activities on a larger screen. Its cameras (both selfie and rear ones) offer better numbers compared to its rival, but camera comparisons can be rather tricky, so the “larger” numbers do not necessarily translate into a better photography experience.
It offers the same RAM and onboard storage as its counterpart, but boasts a much larger external storage (up to 2TB), giving users adequate space to store all the information they want.
Infinix Hot 10 vs Infinix Note 7: Which Of These Devices Should You Opt For?
This comparison has brought the pros and cons of both smartphones up close, laying bare all that both smartphones have to offer. So, the big question now is, which of these should you go for?
The Hot 10 boasts a bigger battery and is far cheaper than its counterpart. It also offers 4G support, while sharing the same chipset, RAM and onboard storage with the Note 7.
The older Note 7 on the other hand, brings a larger display to the party, and also offers more external storage space, a faster charging battery, and cameras with better numbers.
The better smartphone to select between these mid-range Infinix smartphones depends largely on what you desire from a device. If you want a smartphone with decent specs, a slim, handy build, a powerful battery and adequate storage space at a great price, then the newer Hot 10 should be the ideal choice.
But if you want something with more external memory, an expansive display and possibly better cameras, then the Note 7 should be your pick. However, it has one huge catch, it comes at a far more expensive price (about ₦30,000 more) than its close relative.
At the end of the day, the facts have been laid bare before you and the buying decision rests solely in your hands.
