Infinix Note 2 X600
For those who are not aware of the infinix note 2, then you must be living in a different universe or a different Continent. The note 2 x600 is one of the best selling infinix selling smartphones and looking at the phone, iI must say, Infinix did their best. So far, I have purchased this smartphone for two girls (:D) and have seen this phone countless time in people’s hand.
I know three people from the same family using the phone, this is to show you, how curvy and beautiful this phone is, plus the insatiable need for more.
The Infinix Note 2 is a phone welcomed with open hands by the public. Did you know that the note 2 was previously named “Infinix Big 6” mainly because of its 6-inch Display?. Well, it was later changed and named: Infinix Note 2.
Is it Infinix note 2 or Infinix hot note 2?
To be honest with you, this really gave me some headache, and I was really planning to ask for an explanation from the infinix mobility corporation for an explanation. I noticed several big websites calling it infinix note 2 and infinix hot note 2.
But later, I knew that the ‘Hot’ is retired and the phone is officially known as infinix note 2.
Display and Camera
Like I said, among the most awesome things I knew about this phone is it’s camera and clarity. The infinix note 2 comes with a very bright camera.
When comparing the note 2 with the hot note, one big difference is the screen size, which is 5.5-inch display on the Hot Note. One of the biggest scores of the Note 2, which is why it has such a big audience, is mainly because of it’s chic and eye-catching device, captivating with its massive screen measuring 6 inches diagonally.
The display is bright and offers a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which is the highest screen resolution for Mobile smartphones, after 6 inches, anything upward is called a “Tab”. (You’re knowing it now, right?)
Infinix Note 2 comes with a powerful 13-megapixel rear camera, which is a total upgrade on the Hot Note’s 8 megapixels, automatically making the camera clearer and the image brighter. The 13MP rear camera automatically makes your pictures more superior and more colorful.
Battery Life Span
Another whooping and ground-breaking reason why note 2 is better is the span of its battery per charge, and the fastness it takes to be 100% fully charged.
This is one of the major reason people goes for the Infinix Hot Note’s series. Because of its amazing battery life. The Infinix Note 2 didn’t disappoint, as it even came with an upgrade.
The new smartphone uses a 4000mAh battery, and it is based on Lithium-Polymer technology as well – with a promise of two-day battery life.
This smartphone comes with a newly introduced technology called “Flash Charging”, which makes charging very fast, it takes less than 59 minutes to be fully charged, and flash charging has no single side effect.
You should also be aware, that the infinix Note 2 runs on octa-core processor. You can choose which ram you need. The phone is produced and comes with either 1GB RAM or 2GB RAM with 16GB onboard storage. However, the 2gb RAM is costlier to the 1gb RAM.

Infinix Hot 2
One of the most respected smartphones produced by the infinix mobility company is the infinix hot 2. The infinix hot 2 is the product from a partnership between Search engine giant, Google and Infinix Mobility. Hot 2 is the first Android One Smartphone in Africa (What did you expect, when you enter into a partnership with the biggest search engine in the world?).
The infinix hot 2 comes with a 5-inch screen and a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This device comes with a removable back cover and supports 2 Sims. Just in case you think Dual SIM means China product, you’re very much backdated (sorry) Even some of the latest Samsung (yes, Samsung) products comes with dual sims and I guess iPhone will soon follow suit.
The volume and power buttons are on the right-hand side, while the charging point is at the bottom of the phone.
The only side disadvantage?
The overall body is made of plastic can easily get scratched if not properly handled. But it shouldn’t stop you from buying this device, because you can easily up the phone with a beautiful pack. There are several beautiful infinix packs you can buy, at your local shop or through online websites.
The Infinix Hot 2 also comes with a 2000mAh battery that takes about 2 hours to be 100% fully charge and can last for up to 5hours with heavy usage.
In all honesty, the 200mAh is a little bit low for a new age smartphone, so from reviews, the infinix mobility Corp. released a separate 3000mAh battery for the Hot 2 that can last longer and is much better, when compared with the original set.
The camera of this device is 13MP. It is built in such a way, that it can capture up to 4128 x 3096-pixel pictures, and here are some of the powerful camera specs you should know about.
Geo-tagging camera with LED flash.
Both the front and back camera has it’s own Led flash, which enables you to take pictures at night hours, and it’s as bright as daytime.
Infinix Hot 3
Infinix Hot 3 is also known as the smartphone which takes a selfie with soft flash making “life colorful”.
Unlike the infinix hot 2, this new upgrade will not be running the Android One, don’t despair yet, because this phone still features Android Lollipop 5.1 just like the Hot 2 with Infinix User Interface (XUI) on the top.
The Infinix Hot 3 X554 (which is also known as the PlayHot) comes with 5.5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 resolution (267 PPI).
The Hot 3 do have some striking similarities with the hot 2, but just like every phone, it is an upgrade to higher things. The infinix hot 3 do also have differs from the hot 2 in a lot of ways. It is available in more colors than the Hot 2 and also has more premium features, and sleek built, making it an ideal and smarter phone than the hot 2.
One of the reasons why the Hot 3 is in much need in the market, is it’s “Hot selfie features”
The Selfie soft light which is built in this phone, provides an ambient environment for natural selfies, making it extra easy to take a selfie. The selfie soft light has a real-time smart beautification instantly kicks it up a notch to give you the hottest you whenever and anytime you choose to take a photo.
It comes with an 8MP back camera just like the hot 2.
Here are some of the Key Features of the Infinix Hot 3 camera you should know about:
Smile recognition (smart recognition for smiles)
Gesture recognition (fun selfies)
Voice recognition (smart recognition for the phrase “capture” or “ cheese”)
Timed photos（great for selfies)
Touch capture (touch screen for instant focus and capture)
Focus Tracking（essential tool for spontaneous capture）
The Hot 3 comes with a whopping 16GB internal storage (but for those who love to have more videos, photos, music, and apps on their device, the 16gb can be expanded to 32GB)
You can choose to either purchase the hot 3 with 1GB or 2GB of RAM. (The only difference is the price. The price for the hot 3 2gb RAM is slightly costlier than the 1gb RAM.
You might say that the 8MP rear camera is small, but the price is very okay and affordable.
Infinix Note 3 X601
Infinix Note 3 X601, which can also be called the infinix note 3, is the successor of the Infinix Note 2. Just like the note 2, this note 3 still comes with the massive 6-inch display, which made the infinix note 2 a darling to all who purchased it.
However, since the note 3 is an upgrade to the note 2, it features more pixels, which is beautifully squeezed in for a more brilliant view and beautified photo.
The Infinix Note 3 offers a premium metal design, Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), a fingerprint sensor, and a 4500 mAh battery, and with the note 3, you’re complete. 😀
What You Should Know About the Design and Display
When compared with the note 2, you’ll be amazed to know that the infinix note 3 is a slimmer and have the sleek look of the best smartphones, like the Samsung galaxy s9 and iPhone X. The Infinix Note 3 shaves off nearly 1 mm of depth compared to its predecessor, making it a whopping 8.4 mm when measured. The sleek metal design gives the phone a premium look and feel.
For the main time, this device is ONLY available in gold and silver.
The Camera: Front and Back (Rear)
Yes, it’s amazing, but like I always say, any upgrade comes with a more added bonus, and this is what infinix mobility knows. Just like the newly introduced Infinix Hot 4, the Infinix Note 3 have the front facing camera, upgraded from 2MP (in note 2) to 5 megapixels.
