The infinix note 10 Pro comes with some promising specifications that translate accurately when it comes to usage. We have a 6.95-inch display that won’t be suitable for one-handed usage. The display is an IPS LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate it is also a full HD+ display with a resolution of 1080p. we have a device running on android 11 and a refines XOS 7.6 that is still bloatware heaven. The phone has plastic at the back and glass upfront.

It is made of plastic at the back and glass upfront but I can’t confirm the type of protection it comes with.

The phone runs on Android 11 and XOS 7.6 by infinix and the chipset used in powering this phone is the MediaTek Helio G85 which is a capable performer. It comes with 6 or 8 gigs of ram depending on the one you can afford you either get the one with 64 or 128 gigs of Ram storage can also be expanded with an SD card.

Tecno Camon 16 Premier

So we can easily say that this is the twin of the infinix zero 8 and the decision to buy either of the phones might come down to brand preference. But there are slight differences the Camon 16 premier is slightly taller by some inches at 6.9 inches. We have a 64MP quad-camera at the back and the same 48MP dual cameras up front.

The battery here is 4500mAh and you get that 33W fast charger that is awesome. The display is a PLS TFT with a 1080 p resolution. We have the MediaTek Helio G90T powering the device and android 10 is the operating system while HiOs is the user interface.

The device is made of plastic and the camera cut out has a square shape the fingerprint is placed on the side and it doubles as the unlock key. The design might be the only reason ill pick the Camon 16 premier over the infinix zero 8.

Samsung Galaxy A71

Samsung Galaxy A series of phones have done greatly in Nigeria especially because of their awesome battery life. The A71 is one of the best devices currently available in Nigeria. We have a 6.7-inch device with an AMOLED display and 1080p resolution.

It has 8GB ram and 128 GB storage this can get you close to the Samsung Galaxy S20 why still keeping it at a low price. We have the snapdragon 730 powering the phone and it was released with android 9 but an android 10 update has already been provided and anytime soon there should be an android 11 update rolling out.

Redmi Note 9 Pro

Why did it take so long for the first Xiaomi device to make its entry? Well with the right marketing strategies and availability Xiaomi might go on and be the brand that most Nigerians would run to. When the Redmi note 9 pro was launched In Lagos it was sold out in less than 48hrs.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with the SnapDragon  720, bringing a good gaming experience and fast performance.

Infinix Note 7 Pro

The Infinix Note 7 is another great option from Infinix mobile if you love big displays then this one will be okay for you. It has 6GB Ram and 128GB of storage. It runs on Android 10 and the display size is 6.9 inches we have an IPS LCD sadly it comes with 720p resolution. This device is one of the most bought phones in Nigeria in 2020.

The MediaTek Helio G70 is powering the device and it was underutilized by infinix given the efficiency of the chipset. We have a 5000mAh battery and some 18W fast charging. XoS user interface has a lot of bloatware and I’ll be happy if infinix reduces the bloats moving forward. We have a Quad camera setup with the main 64MP camera upfront we have a 16MP selfie camera as well.

Price – 71,000 to 89,500 NGN

One good thing about Samsung in Nigeria is that they launch their devices the same day as the launch globally. There used to be special galaxy events annually in Nigeria as well. Every Samsung Galaxy device is available in Nigeria including the Galaxy Z fold 2. Note 20 ultra is one of the highest-end Samsung phones available in the country.

The device comes with a 1440p resolution and a 6.9 inch DYNAMIC AMOLED 2X display size it also has corning gorilla glass for protection and a 120Hz refresh rate. 12GB ram is efficient to allow the phone to run smoothly and multitasking is great as well it is coupled with 256GB storage or 512GB.

There is a quad-camera here as well with the main camera being a 16MP camera as well as a 16MP selfie shooter. I listed the Pouvoir 4 Pro because it has a high purchase volume across retail outlets.  It’s largely down to the battery capacity.
