The Honor Note 8 is the latest phablet from the stable of Huawei technologies. The device was released for purchase just few days back and already registrations are on in China preparatory to the device’s first flash sales. The Honor Note 8 is the largest of the three phones under comparison. It sports a massive 6.6-inch display with 2k resolution. Powered by a top-end Kirin 955 chipset, the Note 8 comes in three memory variant, the lowest being 32GB and the highest variant packing a 128GB storage on-board. All three versions have 4GB RAM.
The Infinix Hot S X521, the latest from Infinix has a smaller 5.2-inch display with 720p resolution, while the Camon C9 has a 5.5-inch display with a higher 1080p resolution. The Infinix Hot S X521 is powered by a MediaTek MT6753 processor and comes with 2GB of RAM, but there is a 3GB RAM version available in the Nigerian market.
The Camon C9 holds its own with 13MP camera on both the front facing unit and the rear unit and is touted as a selfie smartphone. The Honor Note 8 and Hot S fairs reasonable well with both clutching 13MP rear camera units and 8MP sensors on the selfie cam.
In the battery aspect, which is a key concern to many users when choosing their smartie, the Honor Note 8 with a larger size and higher display resolution crams a 4,500mAh battery while the Infinix Hot S impresses with a massive 4,000mAh battery. The Tecno Camon C9 packs a 3,000mAh battery under its hood. In the end, the Hot S from Infinix should provide longer duration of use considering its display resolution is the lowest and obviously it is smaller in size than the Note 8.
