Symphony Z60 Plus Pros
It sure has a better and more universal design with the center punch-hole front and a minimal glossy back. But design is a personal choice and some users may like the design of the itel S23 better with its color-changing (white/pink) back. Both are plastic made without any protection. Symphony is offering a faster 18W charger. It also comes with a faster Unisoc T616 chipset with well-optimized software. Even though the RAM amount is lower, they have a faster ROM as well. So, in terms of performance, the Z60 Plus of Symphony also wins. It is also priced ৳500 lower which is not that much of a big deal.
itel S23 Pros
Design plays a key role for many consumers, especially in Bangladesh and some users may find the unique color-changing back panel to be very attractive. This kind of design technology is rare in smartphones and almost never exists in low-budget phones. So, it’s a big plus point for itel here.
itel is also offering better front and back cameras. Although it looks almost the same in the specs sheet, we have seen visible differences in the results of both phone cameras. itel S23 photos look more natural and clear. It’s slightly color-boosted but still doesn’t look artificial. itel also gives a slightly higher 8 GB RAM compared to Symphony’s 6 GB RAM.
Altogether, Symphony S60 Plus takes the trophy for us. But itel S23 is also an excellent and well-recommended smartphone with some powerful and unique features.
