What was the difference between a British colony in Africa and the British sphere of influence in China in the late 1800s?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

They had tremendous economic influence on China though. Think of the Opium Wars. African nations were mainly protectorates. Though they had the influence, they were mainly there as occupants to secure trade routes. Policy regarding Britain was under their control, but the colony was able to have its sovereignty.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
