First Impressions

The Infinix Note 4 is a beautiful smartphone that is well thought out and designed. Its sleekness, design and physical home button give me great aesthetic pleasure.

But at the same time, these features give the Infinix Note 4 an uncanny resemblance to the Samsung S series (S6, S7).

In terms of design, the Note 4 is a big upgrade from the Infinix Note 3, but is lower than its predecessor in battery power and screen size.

Nevertheless, I hear rumors that this ₦59,400 smartphone is built to surpass its predecessor in performance. In a few days,I promise to confirm veracity of this claim in a detailed review; fingers crossed.

Good to know. It looks like an interesting device. Please, what about the mentioned pen? Or is it just a publicity thing?
