As you can see the specs look pretty exciting and the differences as well. Let us now see the advantages of both phones.
Symphony Helio 80 Advantages
It’s much more durable and premium on the outside with a Gorilla Glass 5 front and a glass back panel. An AMOLED display gives more crisp and vibrant colors than an IPS LCD display. It also has a higher 120Hz refresh rate support.
Both front and back camera quality are better as well as video recording quality. It stays ahead in terms of performance with a much faster MediaTek Helio G99 chipset and uMCP5 internal storage. It also offers a much-desired secondary noise-cancellation microphone.
Infinix Hot 30 Advantages
Some of its color models come with an attractive color-shifting back panel. It looks really nice, especially in the white color model. With the Widevin L1 certification, you’ll get a bit of a resolution boost in the display. Then there is a 33W fast charger, a higher 8 GB RAM and better sound quality with stereo speakers.
The Symphony Helio 80 is the clear winner here considering all aspects. Hot 30 has a few pros as well particularly the color-shifting design, faster charging and a slightly better sound quality and RAM size.
