I just ran into this topic. And if with all my years of working on the Android platform and I don’t comment then I have left most Nigerians mislead. The name is techno the other is Samsung. And for those of u even comparing that name to techno to the name Samsung, I guess u have been paid by techno to help promote their cheap hardware. Now let’s start with hardware.
Samsung hardware is far too superior for techno, techno have to sell their phones cheap so they don’t have to spend too much money on making a hardware to compare with the likes of Apple Nokia Sony or HTC. But that’s the category Samsung belongs, the competitive zone. Samsung has to build their hardware to meet the standards of other oem’s but techno don’t have to cos they believe Nigerians are dummies that will use anything sold for a price that equals a waste product. Samsung uses some of the best chips in the mobile industry, the exynos chip and the snapdragon, what those tecno use? Some worthless chip with bad processing power. Samsung uses some of the best display technology in the super amoled display, what those tecno use? Some screen looking like a phone of the early 2000. And for the battery Samsung phones pack very powerful chipset which requires good energy to process data at a fast pace so the battery has to be at his best. Techno phones don’t really need powerful batteries cos they already have a chip of no value and display is like a wrist watch. As for the cameras, Samsung packs some very good cameras that can compete with Apple Sony and other oem. But tecno 5mp equals the 3mp on a Nokia Asha phone, what a shame!.
Now let’s look at their software, the only reason why apple(crapple) keeps taking Samsung to court in my own thinking is cos they can’t cope with the kind of innovation Samsung brings to software design. Smart stay, smart pause, smart scroll, air gestures, smart commands, multiwindow, pop-up play, spen innovations and many others. My friend tecno phones lacks innovation all they do is pack an unbacked Android os into some cheap hardware.
Now let’s talk about updates. When u buy a Samsung device at a high price it is because u are paying for other services as well which includes updates. Tecno doesn’t care about updates. If u buy a Tecno device on Android 4.2 that’s the end of the life of the Android os.
So my fellow readers am not pushing Tecno of the way totally, if u can’t afford a Samsung device then buy a tecno device to get a taste of Android but when u decide to compare Samsung to Tecno that’s were u been very ignorant and very biased.
The Nigeria market isn’t wanna of Samsung strong hold so Tecno innovation doesn’t really bother them as a company.
I conclude by saying buy Tecno if u can’t afford Samsung but by Samsung if u can afford it and stop been mislead.
