Welcome to the stunning world of the Infinix Note 4 with a versatile touch and feel. The phablet was released on the 3rd of July and it is already making staggering waves. Although the device comes in smaller size to the 6in Note 3, it is still very sleek. The Infinix Note 4 comes in two varieties; the Note 4 and the Note 4 pro. It packs an impressive 8MP front camera and 13MP rear camera. It starts from N53,000 on Jumia.

Features and Benefits
Crystal Clear Picture and Videos for you
The Infinix Note 4 comes with a staggering full high definition (FHD). This means that your picture would be a lot clearer, crisper and more colourful. A 5.7in IPS display would give you better viewing angles than most screens offer. Although some reviews consider the 5.7in screen smaller than its predecessor a disadvantage, personally, I see it as an advantage here. It makes the Note 4 less bulky and easier to handle.
It has a jaw dropping 85% NTSC, 20% much higher than even most high ends phone offer. With this, it can display more colours than most phones offer. A 500cd/m² implies you can see its display under very bright lights including the sun!
It comes packed with a non removable 43oomAh battery. This is sadly lower than that of the Note 3 that has 4500mAh. However, with newer technology, the Note 4 performed very well with 1.5 days heavy use and 2 days normal use on a single charge.
With the XCharge technology, the Note 4 can charge from 0% to 45% in 30 minutes. It can also give you 2 hours talk time on just 5mins charge and offline music play time of 6 hours. This is particularly remarkable with Nigeria’s power supply. Additionally, it is also important when you are about to go out “and Nepa brings light”; this means a 5mins charge can actually make a difference.
The 8MP front camera is fitted with the latest technology to create stunning selfies. The 8MP front camera comes with a 1.4um sensor. This is actually used by most phones however, this front camera would still perform less than that of an iPhone which comes with 1.5um.
The rear camera comes with a dual flash. This dual flash makes long distance images clearer and crisper. Think about a concert where you can’t move closer to the stage, with this camera, getting crisps pictures of your favourite artists’ performance would just be a breeze.
Finger Print Scan
The finger print scan on the home button is a great convenience. The finger print scan saves you the time of typing passwords or codes to unlock your phone. However, finger print scan is actually less secure than strong passwords. You leave your prints everywhere and this can be used to unlock your phone. An advice is to be careful with your finger print especially when you are asleep. Some people could be very sneaky!
It has an octa core chipset with 2GB or 3GB RAM. I would expect the device to be quite fast. Although, Andriod OS tend to be slower with time and usage. I hope the Nougat solves this problem.
The XOS 2.2 allows you to multitask, that is, use more than one application per time. The Fingerprint function also facilitate quick opening of apps, photos or libraries. This helps you execute tasks a lot faster.
It comes in 16GB or 32GB, both of which are small for an average internet user. Clear movies with high quality could go as high as 1GB or even more although most people settle for lesser quality movies but we both do not settle for less. The catch here is the device expandable to 128GB but this comes as an additional cost to you.
