Infinix Note 4 review – Only issue is processor performance

Infinix a new brand recently launched two handsets and entered the Indian markets. Here is the Infinix Note 4 review. This handset comes with a 5.7 inch screen, powered by octa core processor and priced at Rs. 8,999. Is it worth it and does it really competes with the Xiaomi smartphones in the same price category, check this review to know.

When I opened the Infinix Note 4 box (unboxing) it looked good, though heavy the overall build was very good. Screen was good, performance was smooth, I checked the camera first and was impressed but when I started the full review some things did not quite turned out as expected.

There is one problem on this handset and that is the processing power, it cannot play high end games in high quality mode, they clearly lag. This has to do with the FHD resolution plus a bigger screen on a MT6753 with Mali T720 GPU.

Infinix Note 4  Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 13MP, auto focus, flash
Front Camera : 8MP, fixed focus
Video Recording : 1080p (FHD) resolution

The camera performance on the Infinix Note 4 was quite impressive. Day light as well as low light shots turned out great. The only issue that can be fixed via software update is the yellow tint visible in daylight shots. Otherwise the camera quality is excellent. Do check the low light shots below. Front camera also does a very good job.

Camera Rating : 4.1 out of 5

Verdict

The Infinix Note 4 is a good handset, a bit heavy but screen is good, UI is good though it has a lot of unwanted apps you might want to remove. The UI is different and will take some time getting used to. Camera is excellent, better than Redmi 4 / Redmi Note 4 in low light conditions, if you check the samples and compared it is slightly better. So camera just crosses the Excellent category. However the CPU / GPU performance spoils the fun.
