Looking at the differences, it is my opinion that the Infinix Zero 5 seems to give more value for money than the Phantom 8.

It has Slightly bigger display despite they both have the same screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel, bigger battery of  4350mAh to 3500mAh. If you are focusing on the Africa market, the battery capacity on the device is very important also Lower selling price. Though, Phantom 8 has an edge of  20 megapixels selfie camera  and that may as well not be real as both give clearer pictures. Also, the Phantom 8, can get up to 2TB with via a microSD card storage capacity.

Meanwhile, If you can overlook the battery capacity difference and the screen display, Phantom 8 could be your choice and ready to pay more as well.
