The Infinix Note 2 is here finally and we are going to have a look into the box of the 'Big One' as I like to call it because of it's bold 86% screen to body ratio.

Let us tear into the box of the device and see its constituents. In order words, join me in unboxing the Infinix Note 2

The Infinix Note 2 is well endowed with impressive specs that would sure make the device standout among its peers.

  • Android Lollipop 5.1 Operating System
  • Dual (micro) SIM card slots

  • MediaTek Octa-Core Processor
  • 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, expandable to 64GB external
  • 4040 mAh battery
  • 13MP rear camera with LED  flash and real time auto focus, 2MP front camera


What's in the box?

After the first layer with the device itself atop, a compartment in the lower part of the box contains all the other peripherals which are not really much by the way.

The device is contained in the box with a charger head, USB cable, user guide, and obviously no earpiece as you can see.

Then there's the non-removable battery at the back with the dual sim ports flanking the phone after  the camera and the memory card slot.

First Impressions

6 inches is a lot of screen to have and the Note 2 is sure one gutsy device to sport so large a screen. It looks like a dumbbell at first glance, but feels surprisingly light weight. The design is rounded and smooth making the phone an easy carry on device.


The Note 2 is retailing on Jumia  for ₦30,5000 and for all these specs packed under the hood, it is a good buy.

Over the next few days, I will put this mobile device under the lens and make a thorough review out off it. Keep your fingers crossed.
