Design comparison

The Camon 15 and the S5 has a different dimensions. Ofcourse, we are not surprised because they don’t share same screen size. In terms of weight, the Camon is much heavier than the S5. It weighs 195grams while the S5 weighs 178grams.

So you can see that the S5 will feel more lighter. The back of this two phones are made from plastic and they both has a plastic frame. They also has a SIM slot for dual Nano SIMS and one SD card. Now which one is better in terms of design?

I would go for the Camon, i really love the camera setup design but that doesn’t mean that the design on the S5 is bad, this is just a comparison. Some people will choose the design on the S5 over the Camon, so it’s up to you.

Display comparison

Display wise, they both uses an IPS LCD screen but they differ in screen size. The Camon has a screen size of 6.5inches while the S5 has a bigger 6.6inches. They shares same 720 by 1600pixels resolution. Punch hole display is what both of them uses.

So for display, they are same but the S5 will feel bigger and if you love consuming media on your phone, you will love the S5 display. It is a 6.6inch display compared to the Camon 15 6.5inch. All in all, there is no much difference, i would say they are same.

Hardware & Software comparison

Under the hood, this is where they differ entirely. The S5 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 but the Camon 15 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35. S5 runs on the older Android 9 pie with XOS 5.0 on top while the Camon runs on the latest Android 10 with the latest HIOS 6.01 on top.

In terms of GPU, they both comes with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The S5 comes in two configurations which are 4GB/64GB or 6GB/128GB but the Camon comes in only 4GB/64GB configuration. We are comparing with S5 4GB/64GB variant. So in terms of hardware, the Camon 15 is better.

Camera comparison

For camera, both phones comes with a Quad rear cameras but the Camon went over the S5 with it’s 48MP main lens. The S5 just has a 16MP main camera. Again the Camon can shoot videos in 4K but S5 can’t. Taking a look at the front camera, this is where the Infinix S5 beat Camon 15.

The S5 comes with a 32MP front camera while the Camon comes with a 16MP front camera. However, both can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. Camon comes with a front selfie flash but S5 doesn’t come with that, but both has a four flash lights at the rear.

Who should we give the camera throne? It is definitely the Tecno Camon 15. It beat Infinix S5 mercilessly with a 48MP camera at the rear but the S5 revenged with a 32MP selfie camera. Then again, Camon 15 brought him to the dark and beat him again but the S5 can’t revenge anymore because he doesn’t have a selfie flash. You see how that works?? ;D

Battery comparison

Coming to the power source where they draws energy. The Camon comes with a 5,000mAh battery while the S5 comes with a lesser 4,000mAh battery and both doesn’t support fast charging. So the Camon 15 will perform better but it might take longer to charge.

Fingerprint sensor is present at the back on both phones. So that’s brings us to the end of Tecno Camon 15 Vs Infinix S5. Now which one will you go for? Let me give ratings.
