Admittedly, I have not had any hands-on experience with either of the devices whose specs we’re going to be comparing today. However, that won’t stop us from tearing down the specifications of each device side by side in a bid to try and demystify which one deserves your hard-earned cash.
Like every other specs comparison, we miss out on the actual experience of the device as some might feel better than others, be heavier than others and maybe one doesn’t look as good in person as in pictures but all in all.
Here is a specs comparison of the Infinix S4, Huawei Y7 Prime (2019) and the Samsung Galaxy A20:
|Infinix Hot S4||Huawei Y7 Prime (2019)||
Samsung Galaxy A50
|Display||6.2″ 720P||6.26″ 720P||6.4″ 720P|
|Software||Android 9.0 Pie||Android 8.1 Oreo||Android 9.0 Pie|
|Main Camera||Triple 13MP (standard) + 8MP (ultra-wide) + 2MP (depth sensor)||Dual 13MP (standard) + 2MP (depth sensor)||
Dual 13MP (standard) + 5MP (ultra-wide)
|Price||TBD||GHS 829||GHS 1599|
The truth is, the Infinix S4 is the clear overall winner especially when it comes to the cameras and price – which undercuts the competition in this segment. However, as good as things look, Infinix user experience has proven to be a pain in the past with the company introducing ads within its home screen in the form of app suggestions, something that has not pleased a lot of users.
If you are looking for a better software experience with a little sacrifice on the camera performance, the Samsung Galaxy A20 should be your choice. Samsung’s new UI is really intuitive and the company has made the right steps into improving their user experience. As mentioned, the only problem will be the cameras, to be specific, the selfie camera.
As for the Huawei Y7 Prime (2019), there’s really nothing good going for it compared to the two. Actually, the device seems to be lagging behind thanks to its outdated software and on top of that, it commands the highest price. Unfortunate for the Huawei device, even its beautiful design that we would have praised as a selling point, has been replicated on the Infinix S4.
