Display & Design

These two smartphones have 6.7″ AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate enabled.

And when it comes to body built, both smartphones are opposite of each other. The Samsung Galaxy A72 has a plastic back, which is more durable than the Glass back on the Phantom X. like I know two people already whose Phantom X back has broken. like Jerry would say, “glass is glass and glass breaks”.

So plastic over glass anytime when it comes to durability. Glass feels premium, but it breaks.

Fingerprint

The fingerprint of these two smartphones are under display, and from my test, the Phantom X fingerprint is faster.

Software

Now software update is very important on modern smartphones. This is because with regular software update, your smartphone can support newer features that previous software doesn’t support. It also means you can use your smartphone for a longer time instead of buying new smartphone every year.

So even though these two smartphones run android 11 out of the box, Galaxy A72 has a promise of 3 years software update. Which is a big slap on the Tecno Phantom X that is more expensive.
