So after looking at the above table, you can see that the Spark 5 and the Hot 9 are almost the same. The only difference between them is that the Hot 9 is powered by a MediaTek Helio A25 chipset while the Spark 5 is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, that’s only the difference between them.
The major differences between the two series of devices are in the following areas:
- Processors – TECNO uses the Helio A22 from years ago. Infinix uses the newer Helio A25
- Displays – Though both max out at 720p, the sizes are different. The HOT 9 Play and the Spark 5 Air have huge displays.
- Batteries – The Spark 5 Series has a 5000mAh battery that’s similar to the Hot 9. But the HOT 9 Play has a 6000mAh battery.
From this, you don’t need anyone to tell you that Infinix Hot 9 is better. Why? Because it is driven by a MediaTek Helio A25 chipset which is faster than the MediaTek Helio A22 in Spark 5. Helio A22 has a quad-core CPU but Helio A25 has an Octa-core CPU, so Hot 9 will perform operations faster than the Spark 5.
If you also look at their design, you will see that they are very identical too. Same camera placement and everything. You can only tell the difference by looking at their branding. They have the same 13MP main camera, 2MP macro camera, 2MP depth sensor, and a QVGA lowlight sensor. Even for selfies, they have the same 8MP selfie camera.
For battery, they also have the same 5,000mAh and they don’t support fast charging too, so everything is the same except for the chipset. They are also priced about the same, the Hot 9 goes for 36,000 Naira ($100) while the Spark 5 goes for 48,000 Naira ($134). Note that as of this comparison, they are not yet available in Nigeria so the price is what they have priced abroad.
So that’s it about the Tecno Spark 5 vs Infinix Hot 9, the best one to go for is the Hot 9 because of the Helio A25 chipset that it uses. Let me know your thoughts below in the comments.
