The differences between Infinix Zero 8 and Tecno Camon 16 Premier are of very little significant value. Infinix Zero 8 has more colour options, a gyro sensor and a very unnoticeable display size difference of 0.05 inch.

Tecno Camon 16 Premier is also more expensive than the Zero 8. So if you’re considering purchasing either of the phones, the decision should be based on overall phone design or preferred brand- because both Camon 16 Premier and Zero 8 have same technical specifications.

  1. These two phones are just about the same, like you already mentioned. But I like Infinix Zero 8 better because of the rear camera setup.
