Infinix NOTE 2 Review Details:
The latest Infinix Note 2 is the 3rd model in the NOTE series, and if you’re already familiar with the previous Hot Note and Hot Note Pro, you will notice Note 2 or Big 6 has few similar features.
Similar Features on Hot Note and Hot Note Pro which you’ll also Find On NOTE 2 includes:
– Big memory size
– Ultra-Power saving mode
– Fast Charge support
– Hand Gestures
– Dual (micro) SIM
This leads us to the Pros and Cons of the Infinix Note 2, let’s begin with the Cons ( Bad sides of the Note 2 ) first, then we conclude with the Pros.
INFINIX NOTE 2, The Cons:
– The Back Cover is yet another Plastic
– Back Camera is bulging out a bit, this is not necessarily an issue though.
– Position of the speaker, found at the back of the phone
– Some of its specs has no much difference between the Previous Note series. But of course there’s definitely some difference with the Big 6 (Note 2) which we will point out in the PROS of the Note 2 below.
INFINIX NOTE 2, The Pros:
As the name implies “the Big 6” , means it’s 6 inches in length, this should definitely be the first priority that makes the Note 2 different from others. This could be a Con for people that don’t like carrying big phones or phablets but be a huge advantage for those who enjoy games and movies. “Irony of Life huh?” LOL
Infinix Big 6 Comes with 13MP camera that produces some quality, in fact the last time I tested the device’s camera, both of the cameras were pretty good, especially the 2MP camera which proved that it was not about the number being 2MP, it was well optimised and produces very clear photos and videos.
Note 2 (Infinix Big 6) features a fast 1.3GHz Octa-core processor of MediaTek chipset, this processor is not so different one in the previous Hote Note but it features a higher 64 Bits. That may make a small difference.
Note 2 comes pre-installed with Android Lollipop 5.1 for those who love the latest stuff, although we have a tutorial that teaches you how to manually upgrade if you use Infinix Hot Note X551, you may check out this post here.
More so, the Android 5.1 Lollipop based operating system is fully customised by the company’s own User interface known as XUI.
XUI aims to improve battery life, faster responsiveness and customizable interface. Talking about the level of customization, XUI offers 7 different themes and chic wallpapers and useful Apps like Contact Cloud Backup among others found in Note 2.
THE BODY DESIGN:
This design on Note 2 (X600) is totally unique from the other Note series, it looks a bit more premium considering the facr that it has some resemblance with Huawei Honor flagships.
Note 2 also features LED indicators that blinks different colors depending on the type of notification that comes in.
4G LTE NETWORK:
The Note 2 is precisely the first model to feature a 4G LTE network support, hence if you own a Smile 4G SIM or Spectranet, you can try it out and enjoy internet browsing that would be faster than the usual 3.5G.
To clear the airwaves: The device is not water-proof, the battery is 4040mAh, although some say it’s 4000mAh (we haven’t seen a lower or higher one on Note 2) and the Camera is 2MP front, and 13MP at the Back.
We will take us much closer and have more to Share with you, including live photos in our unboxing and hands-on review that would come soon in our future post.
