TECNO Camon 16 Premier vs Infinix Note 7

Two 2020 smartphones; same parent company; two sister brands. Are they identical in any way? Is one clearly superior to the other, or are they birds of the same feather? We find out in our TECNO Camon 16 Premier vs Infinix Note 7 comparison.

Both TECNO Mobile and Infinix Mobiile are pushing bezel-less, punch hole displays in these two top 2020 models. Of course, we are also looking at Android 10 operating system. It would be disappointing to have anything older.

But beyond these skin-deep similarities, what else do these two Transsion smartphones offer, and if you are looking for the more powerful and capable model, which would that be? Will you be doing a premier or taking a note? Let’s find out.

As you can see from the table, while they both are evenly matched in terms of battery capacity and charging speeds (they are “Power Rangers”, afterall), that is about where all the similarities end. Apart from the fact that they both run Android 10 under Samsung’s One UI 2.0, these two phones target two different sets of people.

TECNO Camon 16 Premier vs Infinix Note 7: Where The Note 7 Has The Edge

Infinix Note 7 tips the scales in two areas: it has a bigger display and it has a slightly bigger battery than its competitor in this comparison. But do not rejoice too fast about the display; it has a small niggle. The resolution is an uninspiring 720×1640 pixels.

Reviewers tell us that this relatively low resolution does not spoil the viewing experience, but if I have to pick between this and the Camon 16 Premier’s 1080×2340 pixel resolution, you know what my answer will be.

Traditionally, Infinix Note smartphones do not mess around when it comes to battery capacity. They are designed and intended to keep going after the competition has shut down. The Note 7 lives up to that. Its 5000mAh battery (coupled with a more power-friendly chipset) will give you excellent battery life.

Lets start with the items that are obvious. TECNO Camon 16 Premier has a 48MP + 2MP dual selfie camera. That beats the Note 7’s 16MP selfie cam.

What of the display? It is slightly smaller, but it has a higher resolution and it supports 90Hz refresh rate. That is definitely a superior display to the Note 7’s.

At the back, there is a superior quad camera setup that features a 64-megapixel main snapper. The Camon 16 Premier’s camera also supports Slo-Mo video and 4k video, both firsts on a TECNO phone.

What of the internals? The Camon 16 Premier is powered by a Helio G90T chipset, which is superior to the G70 in the Note 7. It has more RAM too, for smoother app launching and switching.

Lastly, while the battery is smaller, it has a superior fast charging standard – 33W against the Note 7’s 18W.

TECNO Camon 16 Premier vs Infinix Note 7: The Verdict

At this point, the verdict on this TECNO Camon 16 Premier vs Infinix Note 7 comparison is as clear as it can be. TECNO Camon 16 Premier is a superior smartphone on the whole. As a matter of fact, we can safely ignore the tiny difference in size of the displays, and the only area that the Note 7 wins is battery life, its traditional territory.

In every other way, the Camon 16 Premier wins hands down. It costs much more too. A Yoruba adage says that good-tasting soup is the product of money. Enjoying a superior smartphone experience i s clearly also dependent on how much money you have to spend.
