TECNO Spark 6 vs Infinix Hot 9: Which Smartphone Should You Opt For?

We’ve brought the Spark 6 against the slightly older Hot 9, and after all said and done, one question pops into mind, which of these smartphones should you go for?

The Spark 6 offers a cheaper entry-level option, with a faster charging battery, a slightly larger display and 4G technology. It features four rear cameras with decent looking numbers and a solid selfie camera.

The Hot 9, on the other hand, offers more onboard storage and different RAM variants than its rival. It is lighter than the Spark 6 and brings a better design to the table (in my opinion). It also has the Android 10 OS taking care of its software needs.

Your final purchase decision depends on what you desire from a device. If you want a cheaper smartphone with a larger display, decent camera specs and a solid chipset, then the Spark 6 will be an ideal option for you.

However, if you want something with more onboard storage, something lighter with a better design, while keeping all of the important specs locked in, then the Hot 9 will be a great pick for you. In spite of its higher price point, it offers great value for the money and is a great entry-level option.
