Before now, the dream was to own a samsung galaxy S6 as Ihave always have an eye for that device due to the wonderful specification, I never anticipated TECNO already was preparing a beast, a booming 4G Phablet TECNO Phantom 6 Plus which have moved to replace its predecessor today, Phantom 5. After reading the specifications and having used both phones alongside each other, I decided to write a comparison thread between both devices.
SYSTEM AND PROCESSOR
No doubt both devices display high profile settings along with great User Interface but the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes out of the box with Android 5.0 Lollipop Operating System out of the box while the TECNO Phantom 6 Plus comes out of the box with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Samsung galaxy S6 is powered by two processors which includes Quad-core Cortex-A53 clocking at a frequency of 1.5GHz and Quad-core Cortex-A57 clocking at 2.1GHz and it also makes use of the Exynos 7420 Chipset with a Mali-T760 GPU.
TECNO Phantom 6 plus runs on a Deca-core Cortex, Processor clocking at 2.5GHz also the processor uses Helio X20 Chipset and also uses Mali -T860 GPU. There are so many differences which can be spotted between both devices, ranging from the RAM size, Processor speed along with the number of cores, Quad-core and Deca-core are so far apart in terms of performance and so on.
A higher frequency of the processor along with a lower numbers of cores means that the efficiency won't be out standing, just like in the case of low frequency and higher number of cores will produce effective power.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is spotted with a 5.1 inch display while the TECNO Phantom 6 Plus spots a 6.0 Inch Display, it does not stop there, the Samsung Galaxy S6 also has a display resolution of 1440 X 2560 pixels with 577 pixels per inch [PPI], while the TECNO Phantom, 6 Plus has a 1920 X 1080 pixels with 401 [PPI] pixel density.
Samsung Galaxy S6 display is made up of AMOLED, corning gorilla glass and an IPS Capacity technology display on the screen, while on the TECNO phantom 6 Plus, the screen is made up of FHD LTPS capacitive touch screen
STORAGE AND MEMORY
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has no space provided for the use of an external SD card which simply means the phone relies on the in-build storage space that comes with it. but the case is different on the TECNO Phantom 6 plus as the device already comes with a very big storage capacity and still gives you an option to either use two sim cards or use one sim and also an external SD card.
Apart from that the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with 3 different versions, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions which is really alot of space and provides you with your preferred choice that suits you, though the price tag is the only disadvantage i see here. On the TECNO Phantom 6 plus, you get an Internal storage of 64GB and you can also use an SD card as big as 128GB on the device without it lagging or giving issues.
This part is the best of it all, as we all know it is battery that makes up a phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6 spots a 2550mAH Lithium-ion battery which i consider too low for such a smartphone, while the TECNO Phantom 6 spots a 4050mAH lithium-ion battery capacity which can last you for days if used for calls and music alone without having to charge for a long period of time.
