Final Thoughts

The Infinix Note 8 has it good on all sides that is if you are you are coming in as a new buyer. The camera is better, the battery has been upgraded and the design is appealing too.

The Infinix Note 8 when compared to the Infinix Note 7 in Nigeria has little to no significant upgrade. So if you are thinking about upgrading before, I will just advise you to stay tuned.

We didn’t get to the Stylus pen we felt the Infinix Note 8 is entitled to.  We are still surprised to see it absent in Nigeria. Isn’t that the very reason why we choose the Note variant over the regular line ups?
