Infinix Mobility Note 2 hands-on, first impressions
Infinix Mobility is back in the country, this time with a new smartphone with a 6-inch display, octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, big 4,000mAh battery, and Android Marshmallow – the Infinix Note 2. Find out our first impressions of the device below.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the Note 2 is its large footprint. At 6-inches across, the screen size automatically classifies itself as a small tablet or a huge smartphone – which is starting to become more common these days. The HD resolution can still be considered decent at 245ppi.
The display is bordered by a relatively thin bezel to make it look like it has none when the screen is off. Above it are the earpiece, the 5MP front camera, and sensors. The Note 2 uses on-screen buttons so the bottom part is devoid of anything.
To the right are the volume keys and power/lock buttons.
Up top is the headset jack, while down below are the microUSB port and microphone.
Take a look at the back and you’ll see the 13MP PDAF camera with LED flash, the loudspeaker at the bottom right, and the criss-cross finish of the backplate.
Removing the backplate will reveal the dual-SIM slots, the dedicated microSD card slot, and the non-removable 4,000mAh battery.
Although it has a large screen, the Note 2 can still be gripped with one hand, but navigation will still require two. It’s far from premium due to its plastic build but the simple yet classy design is something to look forward to.
When it comes to dimensions, it’s a tall device at 159.5mm, and chunky too at 9.3mm, but it can still fit in a jeans pocket. It’s hefty as well at 194g.
As for the software, it’s already running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company’s XUI on top. Powering it is a 1.3GHz Mediatek MT6753 64-bit octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, and 16GB ROM.
