Many manufacturers are competing in the budget segment because many people are reluctant to spend big bucks on a Smartphone. There are many brands that have become leaders in this segment, one of which is Xiaomi. Xiaomi is known for its high-performing budget headsets, no wonder it has so many loyal fans. Infinix is another reputable brand when it comes to reliable low-cost Smartphone, the new Infinix Note 4 proves that.
It’s no secret that phones nowadays look very similar with one another. There isn’t much that manufacturers can do to distance themselves from others because Smartphones aren’t cell phones. Back in the day, we had so many different choices because there were no standards when it comes to designs. The Infinix Note 4 looks like a typical Smartphone with a screen on the front and a camera setup on the back. While the form factor isn’t something you haven’t seen before, there is no denying that it has a premium appeal. The rear is based on plastic, but the glass-like finish makes it look expensive. The back cover is also removable. This is a great approach considering many Smartphones come in unibody designs. There are 2 SIM card slots and another one for a microSD. Below the screen is a physical home button into which the fingerprint sensor is built.
The Infinix Note 4 has 5.7-inch full-HD display. Many handsets now come with thin bezels because this concept lends a modern look to them. The new Infinix also incorporates thin bezels. Needless to say, it’s much comfortable to watch this way because the bezels don’t look distracting. Colors are also good on the display. They look natural and warm, not to mention that the viewing angles are also decent. It has an adaptive display feature. If you prefer to set brightness manually, you can skip this feature.
There is nothing really special about the camera, but it’s not underwhelming at all. On the back there is a 13MP sensor, while the front houses a 8MP camera. The rear camera delivers promising performance as long as there’s enough light coming into the sensor. If you need to improve the quality, take advantage of the modes like Beauty, HDR, Panorama, etc. In low-light conditions, it performs similarly to other budget phones. Noise is visible and pictures tend to lose detail when there’s no extra source of light around.
With a Mediatek 6753 processor and 3GB of RAM under the hood, the Infinix Note 4 is pretty good for day-to-day computing. It uses Mali T720 GPU to handle the graphics side of things. As for the operating system, it’s actually based on Android 7.0 Nougat. The UI is not stock android, but its derivative called XOS Chameleon v2.3. If this is your first time using it, it’s just as good as the original Nougat. The interface looks neat and icons are also arranged neatly. Bloatware is present, but you may find some useful. These preloaded apps take around 9GB of the 32GB total storage. The performance is smooth with almost no lag when going from one app to another.
