Samsung-Galaxy Tab2 VS Tecno-Phantom Pad N9 by mj(m): 9:15pm On Jul 10, 2013

For some time now, Tecno Android smartphones have been posing a great threat to Samsung’s dominance in the Nigerian smartphone market. And the newly released Tecno Phantom Pad N9 tablet (the first tablet by Tecno) seems to be doing just the same to Samsung tablets, as many consumers are now getting stuck between both products.

Since the release of the Tecno Phantom Pad N9 few weeks back, we’ve been getting questions from consumers as to which is better between Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) and the newly released tablet by Tecno. And if the large number of customers who asked this same question is anything to go by, then Tecno’s tablet will soon become a hotcake in the tablet market, just like the Android smartphones Tecno released before now (N3, P3, N7, F7, etc.)

In response to the demand by many of our customers, we hereby compare and contrast between Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 and Tecno’s new tablet, the Phantom Pad N9.

Both devices are superb and are packed with features anyone would expect to find in a high quality Android tablet — although, the Galaxy Tab 2 has been around and well known among tech-savvy Nigerians for some time now.

Now, let’s see how both products fare against each other:

General

Both devices run on Google’s Android operating system. While the Galaxy tab runs on Android 4.0.3 (ICS – upgradeable to 4.1.1), the Phantom Pad N9 runs on the latest version of Android, 4.2.2.

Also, both devices have a SIM card slot and both support 2G and 3G networks. So, both will give users a great web surfing experience. Plus, you can use both devices to make phone calls.

Body and design

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 measures 193.7 x 122.4 x 10.5mm, while the Tecno Phantom Pad N9 is slightly larger, measuring 204 x 154 x 9.9mm. Though larger, the Phantom pad is slimmer than the Galaxy Tab 2.

Both products are available in black and white colors.

Display

The Phantom Pad has a HD 8-inch (768 x 1024 pixels) display, which is slightly larger than the Galaxy Tab’s 7-inch (600 x 1024 pixels) display. Each device has an LCD capacitive touch screen.

Connectivity

Both devices have GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth, A-GPS, and micro USB connectivity options. In addition, both devices have WiFi, WiFi hotspot, WiFi direct, and dual band features.

Processor and memory

The Galaxy Tab is packed with a 1GHz dual core processor and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. But the Phantom Pad N9 boasts of a stronger 1GHz quad core processor.

While the Galaxy comes in variants with internal storage capacity of 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB, the Phantom Pad comes is available in only one variant, which is packed with 16GB or internal memory. You can expand the memory capacity of both devices using using a micro SD.

Both devices have 1GB of RAM.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has a 3.15MP rear camera plus a VGA front-facing camera, while the Tecno Phantom pad has a 5.0MP rear camera and a 2.0MP front-facing camera. Both devices are great for shooting pictures and videos.

Battery

The Tecno Phantom seems to be the winner here also, as it is packed with a 4500 mAh battery, which slightly trumps the 4000 mAh that comes with the Galaxy Tab.

Price

The Galaxy tab presently costs N53,000 while the new Tecno Phantom pad costs N36,ooo (Parktel Online Store Price).

Who wins?

After comparing the important features of both phones, we think Tecno’s Phantom Pad wins in most aspects. However, because the product is still very new, we cannot vouch for its durability. But if we look at how their Android smartphones are faring in that regard, one can predict that the Tecno tablet will stand the test of prolonged use.

However, if you’re still finding it hard to subscribe to Tecno products because of their first generation mobile phones, you can satisfy yourself by going for the Galaxy Tab.

Are you talking about chinko tabs or tabs in general? I think the quality of the Chinese offerings has been upped recently mostly in the area of screen quality.

hungry marketers/computer village hustlas. smh



unknown and unproven chipset.
unknown gpu. does it even have one?



the above deliberately ommitted for obvious reasons.



since when did tecno batteries become top quality? merely citing mythical capacity does not suffice for a battery u know


the screen. lmfao.
even well known oems use crappy lcd panels. poor colors. very limited viewing angles. poor digitizers.



there is a reason why devices are cheaper. its ALWAYS because they skimped on parts and build quality.


and thats not even taking into consideration build materials, packaging etc or has tecno started using gorilla glass? polycarbonate cheesy abi whats the point if my tablet is going to be a scratched up mess in 3 months



there is a reason why china phones have zero resale value. and are apparently only popular in nigeria and poor backward african nations


[size=18pt]
u see its your money. feel free to spend it howsoever u want. but u dont really need to be making this type of comparisons.[/size]


samsung and tecno dont aim for the same market.
bmw and hyundai dont aim for the same market
this is the equivalent of hyundai telling us bmw has 4 tyres and their car also has 4 tyres and so giving bmw a run for cheaper price point.


just because your intended customers dont really know their left from their right and see products solely from believing whatever BS you tell them does not mean you are the man.
who is fooling who.



THIS IS NOT MEANT TO PUT DOWN TECNO OR WHATEVER NEW FLAVOUR U GOT. afterall i see people who buy 5k china fones in this day and age......... just stop inviting unwarranted criticism because u trying to market some china shit.


and for the record, all these hungry man moves are amusing

oh really?

then I don't see why Samsung should keep telling us about the Exynos
HTC giving us info on Krait processors
and that goes for Mediatek, Nvidia, intel atom and the rest

I mean I only wanna see quad-core and just jump into it, right? undecided

Besides, comparing a 1yr tab to techno seems unbalanced. Don't ya? I wonder why he skipped note 8.0, nexus 7or ideatab undecided

the 2 versions of the s4 have proven that more cores does not translate to better real life performance. A proven chipset will remain the alpha
Re: Samsung-Galaxy Tab2 VS Tecno-Phantom Pad N9 by 3ace(m): 9:06am On Jul 11, 2013
I held the F7 yesterday and I wasn't too impressed with the looks of the interface. Other well known brands don't rely on the Google platform alone, they add their own tweaks to the operating system to give users a more enjoyable experience. You won't notice this if Tecno is your first android but I could easily detect this having used Sony android for a long time. To most Tecno fans, this might not justify the price difference but for me, it does. I can still spare additional N10 to N15k to get my taste at N50k. Anything above that is a no for me as I also don't like breaking the bank for a phone. No doubt, Tecno is doing fine but they can still improve. Someone asked a vital question that if they are being sold for same price, which one would I go for? I say Sammy.

you are speaking Mandarin to them. since they don't care about chipset but love what the phone can do but don't realise that it's the chipset that determines the capabilities of the phone, you will be wasting your time. telling them that samsung has a new tablet with an i5 processor will be too high for them.

bros Brainrex, i commend you for your works in rom tweaking. kudos to you.but handle an S4 and you will know that some androids are more equal that others.
