Analysis & Verdict:

Screen Size & Clarity:

If you’re a sucker for ‎a big screen phone that would fill in the need for an outright tablet, the InnJoo Max 3 would be your most preferred over the other 2. However, the Tecno Camon C9 comes out tops overall for having the clearest screen.


‎Here the Tecno Camon C9 & Infinix Hot S tie due to the evenly matched CPU type, with the InnJoo Max 3 following after. But if we were to consider screen types and resolutions, as well as memory capacity, the Infinix Hot S would offer the Best CPU processing time without heating up.


The Tecno Camon C9 easily takes it due to its improved 13MP front and back cameras that are both supported by LED flash.


The InnJoo Max 3 wins quite easily here due to its bigger 4000mAh battery.


Biometric security features on all 3 phones (fingerprint scanners on the Hot S and InnJoo Max 3‎ and an Iris scanner on the Camon C9) are a welcome development really for these midrangers. However, we give this round to the Tecno Camon C9 due to the higher security level an Iris Scanner has over the fingerprint scanners on the Hot S & Max 3

Overall, the Tecno Camon C9 continues to retain its title as probably the Best Midrange phone we have in Nigeria presently.
