It’s a brand new day and a “brand new” surprise as Infinix releases the Note 4 some days ago and it’s hash-tagged “#TakeCharge”. With this phone, you’ll definitely #TakeCharge of your digital life. Quickly without further “mouth making”, let’s see what this dazzling beauty has in store for phone addicts like us.
Design & Display
The Note 4 isn’t only beautiful, it’s also sleek and portable. At first sight, it makes jaws drop, at a second look, it commands pure love from the heart. The Note 4 has a curvy rear, curved on both sides towards the front. Its amazing camera is located towards the center-top with its LED flash right under it. The power and volume buttons are placed on the right hand side, the USB port is located at the bottom in between two loudspeaker outlets. Turn the phone over and you’ll be staring at the 5.7 inch 1080*1920 resolution IPS display covered by a 2.5D curved glass. The LCD isn’t yet common and in Infinix’s words is “unbelievably colourful, clear and dynamic”.
Platform & Storage
This is still the latest phone in town so you know its features can’t be outdated ones. It runs Android v7.0 Nougat on a 64-bit 1.3GHz Octa-core processor with MediaTek Helio x10 or MT6753 depending on which of the twin you buy, along with a Mali-T720 GPU.
It has a built-in storage of 32GB ROM accompanied by a load of 3GB RAM. Combine these and what you get is an efficient smartphone.
Camera & Battery
Next we move on to the camera and the battery without which a smartphone becomes a dullphone. The Note 4 features a 13MP rear camera, that’s the same camera capacity as its predecessor, the Note 3, but as a change of mind I think, Infinix decided to install an 8MP camera as the front camera while the Note 3 sports a 5MP front camera. The Hot 4’s cameras are really far from these, with a measly 8MP camera as the rear camera and 5MP camera as the front camera.
Going on to the battery, the base model dropped a few mAh from 4500 mAh as seen in the Note 3. The base model features a 4300 mAh battery while the Note 4 pro maintains the 4500 mAh battery capacity along with an indispensable fast-charge technology, 30 min charge = 45% battery strength, an hour charge gives you something to fall back upon in case “nepa take light”.
Price & Rating
As said earlier, this is a new release and the phone isn’t yet on konga and neither is it on jumia but as soon as it is available, the price and purchase information will be available here.
This review will absolutely be useless if I don’t mention that the Note 4 pro features another newly introduced feature. The pro version comes with an XPen stylus and that makes it the first Infinix phone to have a pen – and it functions just like the one in Apple’s iPad pro, the first 14 inch tablet.
Also, the fingerprint scanner has been shifted from the back to the front above the home button. This, we are familiar with in some phones.
In concluding this review, permit me to say “while the Note 4 is a really good phone, it doesn’t exactly earn all the praises showered on it at the beginning of this article as there is no ‘really fascinating’ feature differentiating it from the Note 3”, just the fingerprint sensor location, Xpen feature in the Pro version and after that? We still got a 13MP rear camera where the Camon CX sports a 16MP rear camera, although I agree just a few phones have gone above 13MP camera, even the Vibe K5 note, Tecno w5 and Tecno L9 plus also sport 13MP rear cameras but let’s watch out for Tecno’s next release, “i know say Tecno no fit fall person hand”.
