Hands-on and review of Infinix Note 2 4G
The Infinix Note 2 is a budget Android phablet that packs decent hardware specs on top of Marshmallow OS. The front flaunts a 6-inch HD LCD display that results to 244 ppi, which is below the average retina resolution but still does the job with modest brightness level and crisp colors.
There’s also a 5MP selfie camera up front that has similar beautification control with most mid-range Android phones. Across the screen is a set of responsive capacitive navigations keys. The left side is left bare while the right side houses the clicky volume rocker and power button. Ports are standard with microUSB that supports fast charging and a 3.5mm audio jack on top.
Completing the tour around the device, the back is a polished and textured plastic cover with access to the dual SIM and microSD card slot. The massive 4050 mAh battery is not removable, however.
Speaking of battery, the Infinix Note 2 4G features fast charging and external charging a.k.a powerbank mode while promises up to 25% of battery in first 15 minutes.
The main camera is a 13MP shooter paired with LED flash. It shoots 1080p HD video. The sensor is a Sony made, that’s pretty standard to most budget Android phones today. The shutter speed is quite middling but the focusing is good with pleasing details and colors for its price. Of course, we will be doing an in-depth test to find out the real world performance once we get our review unit soon.
Under the hood is a Mediatek 6753 octa-core processor with Antutu benchmark score between 30k-40k, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. As far as the actual performance is concerned, we didn’t notice any major stuttering right from the setup. As usual, we will be digging more in our review.
The Infinix Note 2 4G’s biggest advantage here is the price, it’s valued at P5999 or roughly $130 including taxes and shipping fee from Lazada.
