Infinix Mobility launched the Infinix Note 3 yesterday to a lot of fanfare in Lagos. Jumia and MTN Nigeria were in on this one as partners hence the #JIMSbigthing tag; JIM being an acronym for Jumia, Infinix and MTN.

The 6 inches big screen device is another golden showcase like the Infinix Hot S, but that device really lived up to its promises and I hope this one.

With a promise of 5 minutes charge giving a 2oo minutes talk time, the Infinix Note 3 does seem to be confident.

But before we take an in-depth look into the workings of the device, let us examine what is packed into the box of this phablet.

What's in the box?

The box itself is a cardboard rectangular casing with blue and white designs on it. The number 3 written boldly in front and "Infinix" by the side.

On the reverse is a seal to prevent tampering and there are gold etchings and trimmings on the box that might not be seen from a distance.

The accessories in the box are the basics; charger head, USB cable, and earpiece.

Surprise surprise! There's a screen guard in this one. With the sim tray ejector pin, manual and a small leaflet that lists the component in the box.

The phone

As you might have already figured out, at 6 inches the Infinix Note 3 is a phablet (a smartphone with a screen size between a normal phone and a tablet computer).


An anti-scratch protection in the form of a nylon wrapping covers the screen...

...and the back is not left out.

On the screen side of the Infinix Note 3, there is a sensor followed by the soft flash for the front facing camera, speaker grills for phone calls and the 5 MP selfie camera.

A power button, volume controllers and the sim tray is located on the right side of the device.

Guess what? On the left side, there's a complimentary tray for a memory tray. So you can use two sim cards and a memory card at the same time on the Infinix Note 3.

First Impressions

At 6 inches, the Infinix Note 3 is a little bit weighty handful. With this phablet, I am going to settle into typing with two hands again.

The Infinix Note 3 retails for ₦54,700 on Jumia.

There is not much to glean off the box and packaging off the Infinix Note 3 so I will be bringing you a comprehensive review in a couple of days.
