Coming to the display, it seems Infinix has sacrificed sharpness for size. Here is what i mean, the Infinix Note 6 of last year comes with an AMOLED display, alongside a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. But this new Infinix Note 7 just came with an IPS LCD screen that produces an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels.
What this means is that the older Note 6 display will be more sharper and vibrant than the new Note 7 display. You can also stream videos online in 1080p with the older Note 6 but with this new Note 7, videos are capped at 720p. The new Note 7 only comes with a bigger 6.95inch display and a Corning Gorilla Glass.
The older Infinix Note 6 comes with a smaller 6.01inch display size. If you are a fan of big displays but doesn’t care about screen sharpness or good colour reproduction, then you can go for the Note 7. But if you doesn’t care about screen size, but wants a screen that is sharp and produces good colours, especially deeper blacks, then the older Note 6 is a way to go.
This is where the new Note 7 proves it’s self as a successor. The chipset powering the new Infinix Note 7 is faster than the one powering the older Infinix Note 6. Note 7 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G70 chipset, while the older Note 6 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset.
Helio G70 is 2x faster than the Helio P35. So yeah, the Note 7 is faster than the Note 6 as expected. The Note 7 has a higher storage configurations too.
For optics, the Infinix Note 7 brought some camera improvements here. It comes with a quad rear cameras which includes a 48MP main camera, 2MP macro, 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP dedicated video camera. The older Infinix Note 6 of last year has a triple rear cameras which includes a 16MP main camera, 8MP ultra wide and a 2MP depth sensor.
For selfies, the Note 7 comes with a 16MP selfie camera. This is also the same selfie camera that the older Note 6 is using. So in terms of camera, Note 7 brought some good stuffs to the table.
Fans of music, the new Infinix Note 7 comes with a dual stereo speakers. This will enhance your music listening experience. The is a good upgrade too because the older Infinix Note 6 has a single speaker.
Infinix Note 7 comes with a bigger battery capacity that even supports fast charging. It comes with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. This is a nice upgrade considering the fact that the older Infinix Note 6 comes with a 4,000mAh battery that doesn’t supports fast charging, nice upgrade.
For security, the Infinix Note 7’s fingerprint scanner has been moved to the side, it now has a side mounted fingerprint scanner. The older Infinix Note 6 has a rear mounted fingerprint scanner.
Infinix Note 7 vs Note 6; which is better?
Well, the Infinix Note 7 is a good choice. It comes with lots of improvements over the Infinix Note 6 such as in the camera, hardware, sound and battery. It also has a larger screen size but the Note 6 is better in terms of screen sharpness and it can stream videos in 1080p. By the way, we miss the X-Pen in the Note 6.
