Both phones have smooth rounded edges and have a premium look about them. They have a glass front and a plastic frame which can make them a magnet for fingerprint smudges. However, the Samsung Galaxy is thinner and weighs a bit less, which makes it much easier to handle than the Pouvoir 4.

The Pouvoir 4 comes with a 7 inch HD (720 x 1640) LCD display while the Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with a 6.4 inch HD TFT display (720 x 1560 pixels). From this side, you’ll have a better view of the Pouvoir 4 due to the screen size and larger pixels.

Both screens were used to consume multimedia content such as movies, Youtube and social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook. However, the Pouvoir 4 had an advantage due to the larger screen size and higher pixels.


The Tecno Pouvoir 4 comes with a quad-camera setup on the back that includes a 13 MP af / 1.8 main sensor, 2 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP depth sensor and a QVGA camera. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy M11 offers a triple camera setup that includes a 13 MP af / 1.8 main camera, a 5 MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. When it comes to the camera, the Pouvoir 4, which has an AI-powered four-camera setup, has an advantage.

Both phones cradle an 8 MP front camera housed in a notch on the front. However, the Pouvoir 4 also incorporates AI technology to make your selfies more vivid and flawless.


The Pouvoir 4 runs on the Mediatek Helio A22 processor and has the Android 10 (Pie) operating system with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. While the Samsung Galaxy runs on Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 and also comes with Android 10 OS with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The phones have held up well in terms of performance, but the Galaxy M11 has fallen a bit behind in light, moderate and heavy use. In terms of performance, the Pouvoir 4 clearly trumps the Samsung Galaxy M11.


The Tecno Pouvoir 4 comes with a 6000mAh battery while the Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with a 5000mAh battery. With a full battery, I was able to use the Pouvoir 4 for 3 days with fairly intensive use. However, the Galaxy M11 which has a slightly smaller battery may have taken me 2 days. That said, on the battery side, the big winner here is the Tecno Pouvoir 4.

The Pouvoir 4 with a micro-USB port which makes charging tedious while the Galaxy M11 rocks a Type C. On the charging front, the Galaxy is the big winner.


Both phones offer good value for money, but in this case given the performance and price, I have to go for the Tecno Pouvoir 4.
