    Hi Kelvin, I lost a HTC One X9 phone and would love to get a phone not necessary of the same specs and features as the HTC, but one that can perform better or same in speed and internet connectivity and battery life also. Please advice, I was eyeing the TECHNO L9 PLUS is it a better option or whats your opinion?. Thanks in advance

    • Hey Peter, Yeah, the L9 Plus is an awesome choice. However, i think the Infinix S2 Pro is a perfect choice in terms of matching the specs of the One X9 i.e Octa core/ 3GB RAM/ 32 GB internal memory. Check it out:

        Thanks Man, for you insight but I am not looking for a phone with big internal storage of 32GB as was the case with HTC One X9, I am comfortable with 16GB.
        My priority is fastness in performance and good Internet connection.
        1.) Do I really need 4G for a phone to be fast in Internet connectivity?.
        2.) 2G and 3G RAM how slow is 2G compared to 3G?.
        3.) Help me understand the different in CPU and the Operating Systems, I am asking because I experienced a lot of heating with the HTC dueling heavy usage.

        • Oh okay. Then the TECNO L9 Plus is okay.

          1. You don’t need for fast internet connectivity. 3G internet can provide fast internet but if you want excellent internet, you will need 4G. Also, you will find 3G in almost every part of Kenya, but 4G is limited to some towns. So, there will be little need to have a 4G phone if your locality lacks 4G connectivity.

          2. There is a difference between 3GB and 2GB RAM. RAM is mostly used for multitasking between apps. So the more the RAM, the easier it is to multi task between open apps.

          3. About the CPU, here is an indepth article we did: , About Operating System, here is the related article:
