Infinix Mobility were smart enough to bump up the infinix note 5 with catchy features like a massive 4500mAh battery and a Full HD+ display because knew very well that the market in Nigeria is very competitive.

The Infinix Note 5 is coming at a time when her major competitor in Nigeria – Tecno mobile launched her mid-range phone some months ago, many are already comparing the Infinix Note 5 with Tecno Camon X in Nigeria, I will share my thoughts with you on both phones at the end of this post.

Let’s take a look at the stunning features of the Infinix Note 5 to find out if it’s actually worth becoming your next smartphone in Nigeria.

Design and Display

The Infinix note series have received an upgrade in her design feature this year with the infinix Note 5 taking the lead. The usual home button and fingerprint reader are no longer positioned in front because the screen now occupies about 90% part of the phone.

The Infinix Note 5 also has a 6.0inch IPS LCD display with full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and a 403ppi pixel density. The display is protected by a curved 2.5D glass with an 18:9 aspect ratio, the navigation buttons are on-screen and the build quality is astonishing.

Battery Life and Camera

When it comes to battery life, the Infinix Note 5 made everyone happy in Nigeria. This phone has a huge 4500mAh battery that can serve you for a long time, Infinix Mobility even went as far as telling us that the battery can stay up to 3 days but I find that to be conservative.

On the camera segment, the Infinix Note 5 has a 12MP rear and a 16MP front-facing camera with led flash on both cameras.


Software and UI

Talking about software, the Infinix Note 5 has the latest android 8.1 Oreo Operating System which has a lot of enjoyable android experience like AI (artificial Intelligence) and beefed up security system. The infinix Note 5 did not get the usual XOS user interface we saw on the Infinix Note 4 of last year, this is because it’s fully stock android now.


Anything Else

Also on the Infinix Note 5 is a 3GB RAM and a 32GB ROM to accommodate all your stuff, for those who intend to go the extra miles with the storage can as well use a micro SD card (up to 128GB) to  spread their wings.

The infinix Note 5 also works with dual micro Sims and has 4G. The processor is 2.0GHz Octa-core with Helio P23 chipset and Mali G7 GPU. And lastly, the Infinix Zero 5 will be available in three great colors: Berlin gray, Milan Black and Ice Blue.

My Thoughts

Just before you go, I would like to share my thoughts on this phone. The Infinix Note 5 is a nice budget phone with great specs, many smartphone enthusiasts in Nigeria are already comparing it with its closest rival; the Tecno Camon X.

Both phones are good anyway but one tend to have what the other lacks. For instance Face ID  tends to be absent on the Infinix Note 5 even though there are speculations that it would get face ID but until then, we are yet to see that.

The Infinix Note 5 in quick response slam a massive 4500mAh battery on the go but the Tecno Camon X only got 3750mAh. The Infinix Note 5 also have better display, the Tecno Camon X on the other hand has better Camera sensors.

Other feature are not too noticeable but then, only you can make the choice option of whether to make the Infinix Note 5 your next smartphone in Nigeria.
