Tecno Phantom 6 vs Phantom 6 Plus
Updated

Tecno has really done a great job with its latest release by pushing the technology side of their mobile a little further. The Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus brings not just an intuitive outer metal shell, but a decent innard specifications that goes well along with flagships from other manufacturers that are currently trending in world market, yet at lesser price. These smartphones however differs in specs.

For those who might have difficulty in choosing which will better tend their needs, we will be highlighting the major differences and similarities between Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus below.

Display:

Phantom 6 -> 5.5-inch AMOLED display, full-HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolution, 401ppi pixel density.

Phantom 6 Plus -> 6.0-inch LTPS display, full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) resolution, 367ppi pixel density.

Note: The first noticeable difference between the two device is their screen size. Both possess AMOLED display and has full-HD resolution, but the 6-inch in Phantom 6 Plus increases its dimensions and weight, this might be negative or positive depending on individuals. For those who prefer something light and easily accessible with one hand, the 6 Plus might be an issue. But as we know, big screen means better gaming and multimedia experience.

Processor and RAM:

Phantom 6 -> 64-bit 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor, Mali-T860 GPU; 3GB of RAM.

Phantom 6 Plus -> 2.0GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor, Mali-T880 GPU; 4GB of RAM.

Note: The Phantom 6 Plus makes a big impression in this aspect because of high-end chipset it packs inside. The Helio P10 in Phantom 6 is great we can't deny, but then, we can't compare the power of octa-core with deca-core, the margin is wide. The RAM speaks for themselves in figure. To simply put, 4-1=3, that missing "1" in Phantom 6 will make Phantom 6 Plus more better in multitasking.

Camera:

Phantom 6 -> 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and Sony IMX258 sensor; secondary 5-megapixel rear camera, LED flash; 8-megapixel front camera, wide-angle lens, LED flash.

Phantom 6 Plus -> 21-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX230 sensor, dual-LED flash; 8-megapixel front camera with *LED flash (* not confirmed).

Note: Tecno is playing a convincing game here judging by different camera architecture both device comes with. Dual rear cameras setup is a new technology that most latest high-end smartphones are boasting of as at now and seeing Tecno heading in same direction with Phantom 6 is amazing. In most cases, the secondary rear camera is use to sense the depth field of an object before the photo is taking, thereby leading to a clearer non-blurring shot. But then, instead of also including this feature with Phantom 6 Plus the firm has decided to up its megapixel to 23MP and enhanced the camera performance with Sony IMX230 sensor. The IMX230 is not the highest in its series, but it will definitively do a great job in bringing the reality out of a captured photograph. For now, besides the noticeable distance in their megapixels we can't decide which is best until we try them out. So watch out.

Storage:

Phantom 6 -> 32GB of built-in storage, expandable up to 128GB.

Phantom 6 Plus -> 64GB of built-in storage, expandable up to 128GB.

Note: Though 32GB internal storage is satisfiable enough for most people, an additional 32GB won't hurt unless the pricing speaks otherwise. With MicroSD expansion slots included, the 64GB won't be the decision maker for us here, what about you?

Connectivity:

Phantom 6 -> Dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.1, Wifi, 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, GPS, FM radio, and USB Type-C.

Phantom 6 Plus -> Dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi 802.11ac, 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, GPS/A-GPS, FM radio, and USB OTG.

Note: Normal average users won't perceive any difference in this aspect. Though we couldn't but notice that Phantom 6 Plus has got more under its sleeve in WiFi sector. The USB Type-C is a welcome development in Phantom 6.

Battery:

Phantom 6 -> 2,700mAh battery.

Phantom 6 Plus -> 4050mAh battery.

Note: This is the point where most people will make their decision. In reality, Phantom 6 won't survive long in "extreme" use due to its limited battery capacity. The operating system (Marshmallow) it runs might help in some cases but this doesn't change the fact that Phantom 6 Plus totally kills it in this aspect with its huge battery.

Operating System:

Phantom 6 -> Android 6.0 Marshmallow, HiOS.

Phantom 6 Plus -> Android 6.0 Marshmallow, HiOS.

Note: Latest operating system means more features, options, security, and battery saving. We can only hope that Tecno will release Android 7.0 Nougat update for these device.

Similar Features

The Phantom 6 and 6 Plus shares some similar specifications apart from differences we highlight above. These are fingerprint sensors, eye scanner, and fast charging.

Pricing

Phantom 6 -> $249
Phantom 6 Plus -> $299

The Tecno Phantom 6 offers something worth spending on and its price is quite enticing, but if only the battery measure up to atleast 3000mAh it would have be our first shot. It is just 6.15mm thick, the slimmest smartphone ever released by Tecno.

The Phantom 6 Plus looks great too and ready to crush other competitive high-end market. Unlike the first, it is 7.7mm thick and its dimensions (160.35 x 83.83mm) is pretty broad when compares with Phantom 6 6.16mm thickness and 151.5 x 75.5mm width and height. One handed users might not find it easy to use.

Both are good and offers great value. We think by now you would have made up your mind. Lets know which one you'll be buying via comment.
