Infinix is not relenting on it’s efforts to be a force to be reckoned with in the mid-end smartphone industry in Africa. And this time, the release of the Infinix Note 2 tagged “the big 6” sure made a statement for the brand.
Just like most Infinix smartphones, Infinix Note 2 is sleek, beautiful and fragile looking. But the brushed textured back makes for a better grip.
The Infinix Note 2 is the logical successor to the Hot Note. And if I must tell you, it is in many respects better than it’s predecessor.
Aesthetic design. A larger screen size with a better screen to body ratio. An amazing battery capacity and a faster charging technology. Better processor. Improved camera. Breathtaking user interface. And for the first time, the Infinix brand is releasing a water resistant device.
All at a very affordable price.
Now, let’s look at the specs;
Design of Infinix Note 2
Like I stated earlier, the Infinix Note 2 is sleek, beautiful, fragile looking but sturdy to grip.
At 6-inch, the Infinix Note 2 is rather a phablet with an all plastic body and beautifully curved rims. The Infinix Note 2 is available in five different colours: Grey, Mint Green, Champagne Gold and Copper Brown.
The Infinix Note 2 has a physical body size of 9.3mm and weighs of 194g.
Right in front of the phone, you will find 2MP front facing camera and the notification light
Along the side of the phone you will find the standby button and volume buttons are at the right side edge. At the bottom you will find the microUSB port while the headphone jack is rightly placed at the top.
Flip the phone over, and you will find the 13MP rear camera and LED flash. While farther down the back is the speaker.
Display of Infinix Note 2
With a screen size of 6 inches, a resolution of 1080 by 1280 and 75 percent screen to body ratio, the Infinix Note 2 offers users an amazing and satisfying viewing experience. The Gorilla Glass 3 ensures that the screen of your fragile device is always protected against scratch and knocks.
So, with the infinix Note 2, you get the best out of your movies and games. And of course, surfing the web has never been better on Infinix devices. And the colour display is good enough for everyday use.
Pardon if it seems like am marketing the phone. But, am just inlove with this device.
Processor And Operating System of Infinix Note 2
Under the hood, the Infinix Note 2 is well packed to ensure you have the best Android experience.
The Note 2 runs Android OS v5.1(Lollipop) alongside the XUI. And the result of this combo is a breathtaking and user friendly interface. We would dwell more on this later. But, let’s look at the processor first.
Internally, the device is powered by an octa core Mediatek processor clocked at quad 1.4GHz supported by Mali-450 GPU. All these according to Infinix makes the Note 2 37 percent faster than the infinix Hot Note.
The phone has the 2GB and 1GB RAM variants and 16GB internal memory expandable up to 64GB via microSD card.
So, whether you are playing games, watching videos, or surfing the internet, you are assured of a smooth experience.
These gesture commands enables you launch your apps quickly without having to click on the app icons. All that is required is for you to simply draw an alphabet on the screen the app would be launched automatically.
For instance, if you draw the alphabet “C” the camera is launched immediately. If you draw the alphabet “M” the music app is automatically launched. This works like magic.
Though, I still rate the HTC sense 7 as the best UI so far, but the XUI is sure a close second.
Camera Quality of Infinix Note 2
The infinix Note 2 comes fitted with an amazing rear camera of 13MP autofocus camera. With other features such as geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama.
Infinix equally claim that the device utilises stack and Samsung ISOcell technology to ensure better resolution and extra sharp photos.
One thing I can assure you is that the camera is good but not like what we see on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S6 and iphone 6s.
The front camera of 2MP with FHD BSI hi-def features as stated by Infinix is pretty good and delivers crisp selfies.
Battery Life of Infinix Note 2
The Infinix Note 2 is powered by mammoth non-removable lithium-ion polymer battery with standard capacity of 4000mAh. So, with Note 2 running out of juice while working or playing is a thing of the past.
The dual IC-charge design (4.5x flash charge) guarantees you of full charge in just an hour and half.
Connectivity of Infinix Note 2
On the connectivity front, the Infinix Note 2 offers you Bluetooth v4.1, NFC(for Google pay), Wi-Fi, and of course 2G and 3G network for fast browsing experience.

My Candid Opinion
I must tell you the truth, Infinix Note 2 belongs to the mid-end smartphone world. Because, it cannot compete favourablly with the big players like Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 and so on.
However, at the price of #34,500, it is the best smartphone that such an amount can afford you.
