Infinix Note 4 Impressions – Design
The design being the first hands-on attraction in a smartphone, the Infinix Note 4 features a glossy looking back pack.
At first, it felt awkward that I actually preferred the infinix smart back pack design. However, after taking a second look at the design, my perception changed.
You have this nicely curved back with metal trims. Kinda similar to what we have on the Samsung Edge devices. There is also an extra layer on the back pack which feels like rubber and almost invisible. Not sure what that does anyway.
Holding the device feels heavier than most smartphones I’ve held in a while now. Of course, the 4300mAh battery can be blamed for this.
The Infinix Note 4 back pack design can double as a mirror during the day time, and as an attention seeker at night. The device however, only sparkles at night when the flash is turned on.
As beautiful looking as the device turns out, it can be a fingerprint magnet (Issa fingerprint magnet). You will probably need to familiarize the phone with your everyday outfit (frequent rubbing), or just smash a case on it. Thankfully, the device comes with one.
Other than that, it looks like a metal design, yeah? Sorry guys, it’s plastic!
On the top, you’d find the 3.5mm Jack. The right side houses the volume rockers and the power button. At the bottom, you’d find the charging port and the speaker grills. Now, one of these is actually the loudspeaker, while the other is the microphone. No double speaker here.
Software and Performance
Starting off the Infinix Note 4 for the first time was pretty quick and straight forward.
I personally love the notification tray UI. I mean, the sleek white and green color combination seem pretty new to me and yes, I like it.
You can also modify the quick functions on the notification tray. This isn’t new though. Same can be done on the infinix smart.
Features I Like On The Infinix Note 4
For a 5.7inch display, both hands are usually required. However, there is a one-hand feature (see screenshot above) on the notification tray which makes it easy for you to operate the phone using one hand.
Another feature i like is the scroll-shot. This feature typically allows you take very long screenshot of a page. This is useful if you want to screenshot a long page and possibly go back to read later. This saves you from having to take several screenshots of portions on a webpage.
For those who care to know, the infinix note 4 features LED notification. Yeepy!
So far, operation has been pretty smooth. Haven’t experienced any lag. Actually, I don’t expect to experience any now, owing to the fact that, the smartphone features 2GB RAM and is powered by a MediaTek Octa-Core processor and it’s still pretty new.
The home button doubles as a fingerprint reader and as you could tell (in the video), this unlocks the device in a split second. Like, really fast. I can’t wait to actually test this against other smartphones.
I haven’t exactly tried the camera yet. Being that, this is just my first impressions of the device. However, in subsequent posts and videos, a camera comparison would be available.
