Design and Build
Coming to the aspect of design, the new Note 7 has a more classy design compared to its predecessors. It’s one of the best-looking Infinix smartphones currently in the market.
The Note series has been known for always featuring great designs but the Infinix Note 7 could easily pass for a befitting mid-range flagship smartphone.
The standout feature of the Infinix Note 7 is the face unlock and fingerprint sensor which is mounted by the side of the smartphone.
I can easily pass the new smartphone for a tablet considering the huge 6.95-inch display which makes it a much larger than its predecessor. It doesn’t just end at the large screen, but the IPS LCD Infinity-O screen of the Note 7 makes it even more alluring.
On the rear, you have a combo of a gradient psychedelic colour pattern and design and the colours emit different colours based on how it’s tilted.
You will also get a circular camera bump slightly above the middle. The circular camera bump houses a quad camera and under it lies the Infinix Note moniker. The Monikers help indicate that the Infinix smartphone is from the Note series.
