Performance

If we want to discuss performance, there is not much to say other than the Infinix Note 5 wins hands down here. It handled a lot of tasks thrown to it efficiently with the Octa Core 2.0GHz Mediatek Processor on this device.

Battery

The battery on the Note 5 has been slightly bumped from 4300mAh to 4500mAh and that would mean a better or extra battery experience here. 

Other things to consider include a better design, in my opinion, this phone feels lighter. Thus if you have to means for an upgrade, then the new Infinix Note 5 is absolutely worth every penny from the Note 4.
