Infinix Note 3 Review: Design and Build
Infinix Note 3 is a full unibody metal smartphone with no much of a difference with the Infinx Note 2.
At one point, it appears smartphone makers will have no design concept anymore because all smartphones are now looking like a twin, like they were made in the same manufacturing plant.
That aside, the real deal is found in the power and performance of the mid-range phablet.
You have the selfie camera at the front that comes with a 5MP sensor and a 13MP primary camera at the back, sitting just below the boxed fingerprint scanner and dual LED flash.
On the left frame of the Note 3, you have the ejectable dual SIM slot and on the right, you spot the power button and volume rocker. The micro-SD slot, also ejectable is placed at the right frame. Standard stuff, if you know I mean.
The dual speaker grill is found at the bottom of the smartphone. Unfortunately, this is a new design gimmick. The speaker is only found on one grill while the mic sits on the other grill.
One thing I noticed is that the smartphone doesn’t feel heavy despite being a giant 6-inch FHD device. Infinix has a nice record of making lightweight phones which makes sense.
Infinix Note 3 Review: Features And Spec
Infinix equipped the Note 3 with an octa-core MediaTek processor and 2GB of RAM. It is responsive, the smartphone is capable of handling demanding apps and games.
Multi-taskig has been excellent so far. Running through multiple apps hasn’t caused much of an issue but that doesn’t mean we are not tired of more RAM.
Infinix Note 3 Review: Benchmarking Tests/Software
Here are the scores of the benchmarking tests using the most popular benchmarking apps; AnTuTu and GeekBench4.
Firstly, the Note 3 scored 33000 on AnTuTu.
The OS brings a lot of customization and features into the Note 3. You can use the XManager, XAccount, XClub, XWeather and XHide to a whole lot of things. The notification tray is also uncluttered, containing just the needed settings to make life on the smartphone easy.
Infinix Note 3 Review: Battery
Right now, you can get a decent amount of power from just 5-mins charge on the in-built battery of the Note 3. This is one underrated feature, but it is everything you need in a country like Nigeria where everyone knows whats the old school “NEPA” or whatever it is called in your region can do.
Infinix Note 3 Review: Pricing And Release Date
It has a retail price of about N60000. You can get the current price using our price checker.
