Both the Infinix S5 Pro and the Infinix Note 7 Lite are recent devices from Infinix. In fact, the Note 7 Lite is barely a month old but the S5 Pro is a bit older than the Note 7 Lite. The short answer to this comparison is that the Note 7 Lite is better than the S5 Pro. But what we’re interested in is ‘how is it better?’

At a glance, the Note 7 lite and the S5 Pro are without mistake different from one another. The S5 pro is a little bit smaller than the Note 7 lite; the former being 6.53 inches and the latter being 6.6 inches. These phones may look alike but they have certain features in common. These include the quad rear camera lineup and the fingerprint sensor occupying identical positions on both phones.
One other major difference is the selfie camera. While the Note 7 Lite features a punch hole on its infinity display, the S5 Pro on the other hand has its selfie camera in a popup socket. Hence, the perfect-view display.
Although one display is called infinity while the other is called perfect-view, they are both based on IPS LCD technology. The bezel (or zero bezel) is simply a design factor. The S5 pro may render better graphics though, seeing as it packs better display features.
While the S5 Pro features a higher resolution and pixels density which are 1080 x 2340 pixels and 395 ppi density respectively, the Note 7 Lite simply features a resolution not higher than 720 x 1600 pixels and 266 ppi density. This simply leads to an overall better delivery from the S5 Pro.
Good display is surely something to consider in a device but unfortunately, it just happens to be something you’ll forget the moment you think of processors, chipset, RAM and all that. Even the operating system is worth checking. Though these phones both come with a good one – Android 10.
According to Infinix, the Note 7 device is made specifically for gaming. Hence, it sports MediaTek G70; a chip made specifically for gamers and mainstream users. This chip is then powered by an Octa-core (2×2.0 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.7 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU. Cortex A75 and A55 are high end and mid-range processors respectively. Cortex A75 is for high performance while A55 is for power efficiency. It also comes with Mali-G52 2EEMC2 graphics processor with up to 820MHz clockspeed.
The S5 Pro on the other hand isn’t made for gaming but for ordinary use. Hence the lower specs it features. It sports MediaTek P35 which isn’t as powerful and efficient as the G70. The chip is then powered by Octa-Core (4×2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU. Cortex A53 is a weaker processor, described as a low performance but power efficient CPU. With it is PowerVR GE8320 for graphics with 680MHz clockspeed.
Both the Infinix S5 Pro and the Infinix Note 7 Lite are released in two versions each. The S5 Pro has 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM versions and the Note 7 Lite has 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM versions.
The Note 7 Lite features a better battery as it sports a built-in 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery with 10W fast battery charging. The S5 Pro however, comes with a 4,000 mAh Li-Po battery. Also built-in but there’s no mention of fast charge tech for it.
For the Camera, there are 3 different versions of the S5 Pro. The variant used for this article features a 16MP wide lens, 2MP depth sensor and a
QVGA lens. Its selfie camera is a 32MP wide lens aided by a soft flash. The other 2 variants have 48MP rear cam + 40MP selfie cam and 48MP rear cam + 16MP selfie cam respectively.
The Note 7 Lite on the other hand comes as a single release but it features 4 main camera lenses. The main lens is a wide 48MP lens and it’s supported by a 2MP macro lens, a 2MP depth sensor and a QVGA lens which is said to be a low-light sensor. Despite these specs, it’s worth mentioning that what makes a good photo is not particularly the megapixels. Though it has a part to play.
For the network technologies, these phones have GSM, HSPA and LTE installed. Same bands, same speed. They also have the same specs for the connectivity. They include WLAN (WI-FI a/b/c/x, hotspot, Wi-Fi direct), Bluetooth 5.0 with A2DP and LE, FM Radio, GPS with A-GPS and microUSB 2.0 with On-The-Go support.
Talking of price, these phones are fairly cheap. At the time of writing this article, the Infinix S5 Pro is around NGN50,000 to NGN60,000 while the Note 7 Lite starting price is NGN68,500 and it goes as high as NGN89,500. We believe however, that these prices will deflate in no time at all.
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, the Infinix Note 7 Lite is better than the Infinix S5 Pro. This however, does not automatically make it the best phone you can go for. If you’re an average user who simply needs a phone for social networks and phone media, the S5 Pro will do just fine. For heavy users and gamers though, the Note 7 Lite will surely do a better job than the S5 Pro.
