Display & Design
Both phones are identical in shape; they share almost the same look. However, the noticeable differences immediately you pick them up are the size of their screens, dimensions and weights. Large screen smartphone lovers will surely prefer the Innjoo 3 over the Innjoo 2.
While the Innjoo 2 sports a fully laminated 5-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 720 * 1280 pixels for a pixel density of 294 pixels, the Innjoo 3 comes with a fully-laminated 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 * 1080 pixels) display with 5-points Touch (G+F+F) and IPS display panels, a better resolution than that of Innjoo 2. Perhaps, the Innjoo Company had to come up with a better resolution to fit into the larger screen display for the Innjoo3.
Depending on your choice of screen size, you have a chance to decide what you want. As for the colours, while the Innjoo 2 comes in Gold and white, Innjoo 3 comes in Gold Black and Grey.

Battery & Charging
The Innjoo 2 packs a larger 3200mAh non-removable battery which supports fast charging. The Innjoo 3 packs a lesser 3000mAh Li-Polymer battery which Innjoo claims can give you 2 hours of talk time on a 5-minute charge. The reason why Innjoo downgraded the battery in the Innjoo 3 might be because its USB Type-C port supports faster charging, coupled with other power saving optimisations in its software.
