We bet, looking at the specs gave you headaches as both phones have the same specs – same screen size, screen resolution, graphics, processor, and even the price. Let’s focus on the differences so that we can distinguish which phone will best suit you.

  • Screen Protection – The MyPhone Infinity’s display is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 while Cherry Mobile opted for Asahi’s Dragontrail Glass. Well, both can give protection but Corning is being used by well known brands like Sony, Apple and Samsung. For us, the Infinity gives a slight advantage.
  • Memory – We give this round to the Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z2 for obvious reasons. If you like to put a lot of songs, videos, pictures, and games to your smartphone, the Cosmos Z2 will have more room thanks to its expandable memory.
  • Camera – Megapixels, for us, is not a main factor when it comes to excellent picture quality. We still believe that the camera sensor is the key to a good picture. Take for example the Apple iPhone 5s. Its 8 megapixel camera remains the best or even better than phones with bigger megapixels. Although you may not see the difference in terms of quality between the Cosmos Z2’s 18 megapixel camera and the Infinity’s 16 megapixel camera, the BSI on the Cosmos Z2 will give slight advantage on low light shots.
  • Battery – We think that the 2,000 mAh battery found on the Cosmos Z2 is not enough for a full day heavy use. So we give this round to the Infinity.
  • Software – Cherry Mobile promised that the Cosmos Z2 will get Android 4.4 Kitkat update. If you want your phone to get the latest software, then the Cosmos Z2 is your best pick.

Picking any of these phones will give you excellent Octa Core performance but let’s admit our decision will vary on the features one smartphone offers. We hope that this could help you get the phone that you want. 🙂
