If you are looking for an affordable smartphone with a good specs and up-to-date features, you might want to check out Infinix Hot 8 (X650B) and Tecno Spark 4 (KC8).
Apart from having decent specs, both phones also feature bigger displays, beautiful trendy design, enough storage space and so on.
Meanwhile, both Infinix Hot 8 and Tecno Spark 4 are almost identical in every aspects except for their different screen sizes and battery capacities.

As a result of that, therefore, we try to examine the features (or specs) of the Infinix Hot 8 (X650B) and compare them to those of the Tecno Spark 4 (KC8).

Identical look with Trendy And Premium Design:
Tecno Spark 4 and Infinix Hot 8 are identical in every aspect, except that the Infinix Hot 8 features 6.6-inch screen, while the Tecno Spark 4 comes with a 6.52-inch screen.
Apart from having identical look, both the Tecno Spark 4 and Infinix Hot 8 also feature classy and radiant design.

Meanwhile, because both phones feature an identical design, same screen aspect ratio and same waterdrop screen-notch, you can't easily tell Infinix Hot 8 apart from the Tecno Spark 4. In fact, it's obvious that the difference in their screen sizes is also negligible.

Nevertheless, both phones comes with a few visible differences which can be spotted easily on their backs. Therefore, apart having different colour options, other subtle, but visible, difference between Hot 8 and Spark 4 are the brands and phones' names; which are found at different places on their backs.
Though, the fingerprint readers of both phones are located in the similar spots, yet, the fingerprint reader of Tecno Spark 4 comes in the shape of a perfect circle, while that of the Infinix Hot 8 looks more like a square.

Meanwhile, each of the phones features triple rear cameras; which are arranged in a vertical manner (along with the Quad-Led Flash) on the back of the phones.
Furthermore, the positions of buttons and ports, on both phones, are also identical.

Infinix Hot 8 (X650B) Slightly Weigh More And Cost More Than The Tecno Spark 4 (KC8):
Tecno Spark 4 presents the buyers with 4 colours options of Vacation Blue, Misty Grey, Energetic Orange, and Royal Purple. On the other hand, Infinix Hot 8 also comes in 4 colour options of Quetzal Cyan, Cosmic Purple, Shark Grey and Midnight Black.
Perhaps, due to its bigger size, Hot 8 is a little heavier than the Spark 4, because, while the Hot 8 has a weight of 179g, Tecno Spark 4 comes with a weight of 176g.
And compare to the 8.7mm thickness of the Infinix Hot 8, Tecno Spark 4 also has a less thickness of 8.2mm.

The current  price of the Tecno Spark 4 and Infinix Hot 8 in the market is 34,500 Naira and 39,000 Naira respectively. But, if you desire Infinix Hot 8 at a lesser price, you might to want to consider the Infinix Hot 8 Lite. However, Hot 8 Lite doesn't support 4G LTE, and it also offers less processing power, yet, it features the same RAM and ROM as the Infinix Hot 8.

Infinix Hot 8 (X650B) Offers Bigger Screen, But Same HD+ Resolution:
Like i mentioned earlier, Infinix Hot 8 and Tecno Spark 4 feature different screen sizes, but both have the same screen notch, and same screen aspect ratio.
In addition, both phones displays also feature IPS-LCD panel and the same HD+ resolution. In other words, the 6.6-inch display of the Infinix Hot 8 and the 6.52-inch display of the Tecno Spark 4 have the same 1600x720 screen resolution.

Which also means that the 6.6-inch display of the Infinix Hot 8 has a pixel density of 266ppi, while the 6.5-inch display of the Tecno Spark 4 has a pixel density of 269ppi. Therefore, as a result of its small size, the Tecno Spark 4 screen is slightly sharper than that of the Infinix Hot 8.

Same Front And Back Camera Set Up (And Same Camera Lenses):
Each of the new phones is fitted with a triple rear camera, and each of the triple rear cameras is made up of the same 13MP Main lens, 2MP Depth sensing lens and the QVGA lens. In details, the first 13MP lens is the primary camera, while the second 2MP Depth sensing camera, is for the Portrait shots, and the third QVGA camera is for the low-light pictures.

Therefore, due to their identical back camera lenses, you should expect similar picture qualities from the shots taken with the rear cameras of both phones.
Similarly, each of the two phones also comes with an 8MP front-facing camera, and both of them also support Face Unlock.

Same Processor, RAM and ROM:
Both the Tecno Spark 4 and Infinix Hot 8 are powered by the same MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 Quad-Core CPU, with the clock speeds of up to 2.0GHz. This also implies that both phones feature the same PowerVR GE8300 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
Furthermore, Tecno Spark 4 and Infinix Hot 8 are also fitted with same 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. And both of them also support MicroSD card; to expand their internal storage space, up to 128GB.

Meanwhile, the Tecno Spark 4 is running on the Android 9 Pie, along with the Tecno's HiOS 5.0.2. On the other hand, Infinix Hot 8 is also preloaded with the Android 9 Pie, but with the Infinix's Cheetah XOS 5.5.1.

Infinix Hot 8 Has Better 5000mAh battery:
Because the Infinix Hot 8 has a 5000mAh Battery while the Tecno Spark 4 is fitted with a 4000mAh battery. It is obvious that the Infinix Hot 8 has an advantage over the Spark 4 when it comes to this aspect, nevertheless, the 4000mAh battery of Tecno Spark 4 is more than enough.
Meanwhile, none of the two phones support fast Charging, therefore, it might take you about three and a half hours to charge Infinix Hot 8 from 0 to 100%. On the other hand, it might take about two and a half hours to charge Tecno Spark 4 from 0 to 100%.
