Lazada Philippines and Infinix Mobility has just showed us the Infinix Note 2 at an unboxing event. We were able to get a hands on with the device itself earlier today.

At first glance, the Infinix Note 2 shares some resemblance with the Huawei Mate 8. Every angle we take it does look like the Mate 8. We just notice that the Infinix Note 2 is a little thicker and somewhat heavier. So far Infinix has managed to trim down the bezels making it smaller than ordinary 6-inch displays.

The 6-inch display is in HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It may be low but for its price range we find it very decent with good viewing angles and good outdoor visibility. Overall performance was pretty smooth and XUI (the Infinix custom UI over Android) holds up to every tasks. It doesn’t have any app drawer but there is an app drawer of sorts that is arranged alphabetically.


So far we are very impressed with the Infinix Note 2’s performance and overall build quality. It has a big battery with fast charging capabilities which is very great. We will be having a more extensive review of the Infinix Note 2 in the coming days. Stay tuned.
