With both smartphones being the lite versions of the latest smartphones from Tecno and Infinix, this comparison is a very fair one. The Infinix S5 Lite however, was released back in November 2019 while we got the Camon 15 Lite just this February.
As usual, the comparison is divided into 4 rounds which will be covered in the sections below. Once again, don’t forget to share this article on your social media.

Design and Display
Both the Camon 15 and the S5 Lite share the same facial design. They both sport the infinity display with a punch hole selfie camera to the top-left side while the flash and call speaker sit above the display, right on the frontal edge.
Their similarities go beyond the facial designs. Their body build which includes front glass, plastic frame and plastic back and size which is 6.6 inches are other things they have in common. Probably the only visible difference in phones nowadays are the colours and branding.
On the s5 lite’s back, lined in a vertical line up at the top-left is the camera array which includes 3 lenses and quad LED flash. The fingerprint sensor is found at the common location; close to the camera. Under it is the infinix branding and toward the lower part is a capital ‘S‘ – showing that the phone belong to the S family among infinix phones.
While the Camon 15 has its own camera array in the same location and arrangement as the S5 lite, it came with 4 lenses and quad LED flash instead. The fingerprint sensor is found in the same place but the branding isn’t. Towards the base is the all caps ‘TECNO‘ and somewhere above it is ‘Designed by TECNO’; vertically aligned.
Seeing that these phones are same size and also share same facial designs, it’s a good guess that they also share the same display features. Both phones sport 6.6 inches IPS LCD featuring 720 x 1600 pixels resolution and 266 ppi density. They are after-all, low-end devices.
Platform, Storage & Battery.
Despite producing the Camon 15 months after the S5 Lite has been produced, Tecno thinks it best to endow the it with MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 (12nm), which is then powered by Octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz and PowerVR GE8320 GPU with a maximum speed of 620MHz. Exactly the same combo found on the S5 lite.
However, while the Infinix S5 Lite comes as a double release which are 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, the Tecno Camon 15 however, comes as a single release which is 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Both phones support micro SD card through dedicated slots located on the sim slots but their capacities are undisclosed.
For the power house, the Camon 15 comes with a built-in 5000 mAh Li-Po battery while the S5 Lite comes with a 4000 mAh Li-Po battery; also built-in. There’s no mention of fast charge tech being available on these phones but the packed chargers are said to be 6A fast chargers.
Camera, Comms & Network.
The Camon 15 may have an edge here, being a more recent smartphone. It sports 4 Camera sensors thus: 48 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP wide sensor, 2 MP depth sensor and a QVGA sensor. The S5 lite on the other hand sports 3 sensors thus: 16 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP depth sensor and AI lens. Both phones sport 16 MP selfie camera.
The number of lenses has very little to do with photo quality, but it does have it’s advantages. this means the Camon 15’s camera is not necessarily a better setup, but it has a higher chance based on its sophistication.
The network technologies found in both phones are GPRS, HSPA, and 4G LTE and the connectivity modules are WLAN (Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, hotspot), Bluetooth 5.0 with A2DP and LE, GPS with A-GPS, FM Radio and microUSB 2.0 with On-The-Go support.
Price in Nigeria
Neither of these phones are expensive; that’s most likely because they’re both low-end devices. However, the S5 Lite falls between NGN40,000 to NGN45,000 while the Camon 15 falls between NGN50,000 to NGN55,000.
I do not consider one to be higher or lower than the other among these phones. The Camon 15 is probably more expensive because it’s a newer phone; and of course, the camera combo. But It’ll definitely drop lower after a while.
