Let’s look at the advantages of each smartphone.
Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Plus
+ Better performing GPU
+ Larger internal storage
+ Larger RAM
+ Dual rear camera
Cloudfone Infinity Pro
+ Better performing CPU
+ Higher front camera resolution
+ Android 7.1.2 out of the box
Both smartphones have the same display specs so there’s no competition in this department. The 5.7″ screen size and 18:9 screen aspect ratio provides good viewing experience for users but the companies could have increased the screen resolution a bit further if you’d ask us. Smartphones are slowly transitioning to the 18:9 aspect ratio battle since it gives more screen area for users to enjoy.
CPU AND GPU
In this department, it is a split decision. The Snapdragon 430 chipset of the Infinity Pro is better performing than the MediaTek 6750T of the S6 Plus. This has also been proven from our previous benchmarks of other smartphones who carry the same chipsets. As for their GPUs, however, the Mali-T860 has a better gaming potential than that of the Adreno 505. To put it simply, if you want a faster performing speed, go with the Next Infinity Pro but if you want to have a better gaming potential smartphone, go with the S6 Plus.
The S6 Plus has a quad-camera setup which means that it has dual rear and front cameras. The Next Infinity Pro only has a dual front camera setup. With this, we can say that the S6 Plus will have more rear camera features but in the front cameras, the Next Infinity gets the upper hand with its higher camera resolution and a wide-angle lens. We do not have both units but we will check their photo qualities right away if we ever get our hands on them.
The S6 Plus and Next Infinity Pro possess the same 3,000mAh battery which means that their performance will be affected by their display and chipset. Since their display is also the same, it all boils down which chipset is more power efficient. However, in order for us to make sure, we still need to test their battery life performance that is if we get our hands on the units.
In terms of overall performance, the Next Infinity Pro has a better performing speed because of its CPU. The S6 Plus, on the other hand, has a better gaming potential with its GPU. In the end, it all depends on which functionality works best for the users and which will fit their preference.
The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Plus is priced at Php9,999 while the Cloudfone Next Infinity Pro is priced at Php9,999
