Infinix Note 2 – Hands on Review

Infinix Note 2 – Hands on Review

Infinix has made a name for itself by coming up with good quality smartphones for a budget friendly audience. After a very successful Hot Note launch last year, the Chinese OEM has stepped up its game with this year’s device the Infinix Note 2 4G. The Note 2 4G comes with a 6 inch 720p HD IPS Display (245 ppi) which is big and bright, perfect for people who like to game or watch videos and movies on their phone. The big display also helps with surfing the web, without straining your eyes. Under the hood lies a MediaTek MT6753 64 bit Octa Core 1.3 GHz processor which is quite strong enough to play the most power hungry games such as Gods of Rome and Mortal Kombat X. The processor is supported with 2GB of RAM which helps a lot if you are a multi-tasker. The body is plastic through and through, but the device is built ergonomically very well (Thanks to the curved back), so it does not feel that it will slip from your hand at any point in time On the storage front the Note 2 comes with 16GB of internal memory with microSD card support up to 32GB. The highlight of the device is its massive 4040 mAh battery which easily lasts you 2 days of light usage and 1.5 days of moderate to heavy use. This is perfect for people who are away from a charging socket for long periods of time. Talking about charging as the device has Quick Charge support, so half and hour of charging will easily give you a day and the full charge takes just under 90 minutes, which is impressive considering the capacity of the battery. The device also has Ultra Power Saving Mode for those tricky times when you have to keep your phone running when the battery is just about to die. The Note 2 comes with a 13MP shooter at the back, which is an upgrade from the 8MP camera found in its predecessor. The camera to our surprise does take pretty good pictures, and with the help of HDR the colors pop up really well. On the front lies a 2MP shooter which comes in handy for selfie lovers. Check out the sample pictures below:     Finally lets talk about the software, the Infinix Note 2 4G runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and is upgrade-able to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. On the top of it is Infinix’s very own XUI skin, which brings with it a couple of really cool features, such as OTG support, Double Tap to Wake up display, Hand Gesture Commands and...
