Mobile enthusiasts are incredibly lucky. Almost every manufacturer is racing to make and release new smartphones. The year 2015 alone has seen more than 10 new smartphones hitting the market and all of them are affordable, useful, and stunning in design and features. One of the newest phones to hit the market is the New Infinix Hot Note X551.
About The New Infinix Hot Note X551
Infinix is a Hong Kong based mobility products company and this is the newest offering from the high-tech company. The new Infinix is smart but it appears to be a fatter cousin of the Zero. We decided to review the phone just to understand whether the price is worth the features on the phone.
Packaging – The new Infinix comes neatly packed in a light brown box and it seems to be offering a phablet experience but with a smartphone price tag. The phone is available in four different colors but with a metallic sheen to the casing. The box contains the Infinix, a charging cord, a USB cable, earphones, User Guide and Safety Information Guide.
Weight and feel — The smartphone fits neatly into the palm of your hand but it is quite lightweight. The mobile case has rounded edges and this gives it a sleek ergonomic appearance. The rear cover can be removed quite easily and the phone offers two Micro SIM slots and a single Micro SD card slot.
Display — The Infinix has a great 5.5-inch 720p screen. The screen makes the apps and images appear vibrant but the lighting may feel harsh on delicate eyes. You can alter the background lighting easily though and we feel that this will not be an issue.
Other interesting features
1. A front 2-megapixel camera and an 8-megapixel camera rear camera are provided. Both are incredibly great quality and can create wonderfully detailed images. The LED flash also allows users to record high quality 1080p HD videos that are truly impressive. Camera software also includes unique features like Zero shutter delay, voice capture, continuous shots, gesture capture, and time watermarks.
2. The phone has an Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU which ensure rapid functioning with literally no lag time. With 16GB internal memory, this could prove to be a really useful feature as menu transitions are rapid and flawless.
3. The mobile has an Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat operating system and it can support 2G and 3G mobile spectrums.
4. The phone also offers other connectivity features like Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 A2DP, and NFC.
5. A whole range of apps are built into the phone and of course, you can uninstall these and put in apps that you specifically want.
6. The impressive 4000 mAh battery offers almost two days of running on a single charge. The phone also has an high-speed charging mode that allows you to charge your battery to almost 75% in less than 20 minutes.
Price — The Infinix has been released in select locations and consumers can only order the phone directly from the company. As a result, price variations may be present depending on location. On the whole, this does seem like an impressive phone being offered at a really great sticker price.
