exactly what I considered when I was to replace my almost 3 years old infinix phone.
nothing new in the new released infinix & tecno phones, I opted for xiaomi redmi A2 lite.

there's a very big price diff btwn A70 and note 5, and therefore even the difference in performance is great.

Don't be fooled by the Samsung branding. This A40s is using a weaker processor. The exynoss 7904 processor being used here only has around 70k antutu score. It uses the same Mali G71 GPU on the helio P23 so don't expect it to be good for gaming or any heavy task. But being a super Amoled I expect it will have very good display and good cameras.

where are the specs? i cant see them and for your information the phantom 9 is a more durable device not these samsung that when your screen cracks small you will have to use more than half the original price of the phone to fix it.

And by the way, what make tecno and infinix tones beta than Samsung phones if not for ba3. Mind you, Samsung A40s comes with a 5000mAh battery OK? Google is ur friend for other comparisons. Thanks

Marketer...
Samsung uses Super AMOLED display and not the crappy AMOLED in Phantom 9...
So you should expect a more expensive repair...
And what business does Phantom 9 have with durability...
Lol, with Gorilla Glass 3...

Amoled panels are generally more expensive. Have u ever wondered why iPhone displays (before iPhone x) are way cheaper than even some mid range Samsung phones? Because they use LCD. Shebi phantom 9 is amoled wit in display fingerprint. Let's see how much the display would cost.

Bro, I don't like phantom 9 but Galaxy A40s is not better like u think. That phone cannot even be categorized as a mid range phone with the way mid rangers are going now. It has a 720p display which places it below mid range (a mid range phone should have at least 1080p display). The processor too is not powerful enough. Forget the 5,000mah battery, that's the same thing Tecno, infinix and other Chinese brands use to deceive us in the past.

If u compare the phantom 9 with galaxy A50 then yes I would tell u the Samsung is the better phone. Pls note, not all Samsung phones are better than all Tecno phones.

The Exynos 7904 is NOT a weaker Processor compared to the Helio P35..
The Exynos 7904 scored 108K,NOT 70K,on Antutu which is more than the Helio P35 EVER scored at 86K. shocked

The Galaxy A40s may have a 720P screen but it's Super AMOLED display still trounces the joke of an AMOLED on the Phantom 9..

You don't think the A40s should be compared to the Phantom 9 and yet you want to compare the Phantom 9 to the A50?

Under which bases?

So the Processor is not powerful enough and yet it has a higher ANTUTU score than the Helio P35 in the Phantom 9? shocked

The A40s has a MUCH bigger battery and all you can come up with is forget the battery?

Are you for real? angry

In what ways exactly is the Phantom 9 a better device than the Galaxy A40s or even the the Galaxy A30,which is about 10K cheaper than the Phantom 9? shocked

You may claim to be impartial but all what you wrote up there makes you come off as another Tecno Marketer,

I guess it depends where you get your info from. The source I reference shows that these two Samsung devices using the processor only managed around 70k. It will also depend on the version of antutu being used.

As you can see,

The lowest score on Gsmarena is 96K for the A30 and then 108K for the M30 and the A40 at 106K..

You may try to sound impartial but all what you wrote up there makes you come off as another Tecno Marketer,

Are you a TECNO MARKETER? grin

So everybody is a Tecno marketer to u lol. Go check my other messages, I don't do Tecno. I currently use a Galaxy A70. U need to get rid of this mentality of thinking everyone that has a different opinion is a Tecno marketer, it's annoying. Check the image below and still talk about Tecno marketer.

Meanwhile, the display means a lot to every phones. 720p display on a 2019 phone can never be better than 1080p especially when both are amoled. The A40s display is inferior to phantom 9 display. By the way Tecno don't make their own displays, maybe it was probably even made by Samsung so what are we talking. Exynos 7904 has a 14nm chipset clocked at 1.8ghz while Helio P35 has a 12nm chipset clocked at 2.3ghz (if those has any meaning to u then u should already know the more powerful processor).

Now talking about benchmark scores, we have seen phones with the same chipset and different scores. So it all comes down to how the OEM tweak those devices. I have not seen any benchmark scores for the phantom 9, but generally speaking , exynos 7904 scores around 4141 on geekbench multi score while Helio P35 scores 4385. On geekbench single core though exynos 7904 scores around 1318 while P35 scores around 897. But u see all these things don't mean much like real life usage.

Processors aside, Tecno phantom 9 has support for more 4g bands including band 28 for glo 4g which Samsung Galaxy A40s does not support. Like I said, if u put it against the Galaxy A50 then I would tell u point blank that the A50 is a better.

gsm arena used antutu v7 while the site I showed you used antutu v6. I guess that explains the varying results. But either way it doesn't change the fact that it's using a rather lucklaster GPU, so gaming can't get any better than a P23 phone. Unless you tell me that GPU performance on an exynos will somehow be better on a mediatek.

Antutu or no Antutu grin

Which should I go for and why?

Redmi note 7
Or
Samsung galaxy A30

Here in Jos, there is a 500 naira difference between them.
