Top Infinix Smarthones and Prices – What to Buy

Infinix smartphones are the next sensation after Tecno phones. My previous post on Tecno smartphones to look out for next time you go out shopping lauded Tecno’s genius ability to create a sober balance of power and price in most of its smartphones. Infinix is gathering a similar reputation with its equally capable Infinix mobile phones retailing at amicable prices.

Infinix’ supremacy in the market gets a boost from the Android One project that made the Infinix Hot 2 the official Android One smartphone for Africa. This means that Google endorses and will provide Android OS for the Infinix Hot 2 – and hopefully to the other latest Infinix phones.

Here are a couple of Infinix smartphones to look out for next time you go phone shopping. I’ll give a brief list of the important specs and my expert opinion of each device to help with your shopping.


1. Infinix Note 2 (X600)

Behind the Infinix Note 2’s undeniably bulky and plastic shell is a combination of hardware and software that is worth the price. As a budget phone, you wouldn’t expect it to pack all its innards in a glossy thin body. If you can overlook this, you will enjoy a whole lot of high-performance features that range from:


  • 5.98” IPS LCD (245PPI)screen that puts it within the phablet range. Quite efficient in delivering video content and playing a game or two.
  • 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. This is good hardware on paper, but don’t expect it to rival a Samsung or Sony with the same specs. There is more to a camera than the megapixel count. Read What Determines a Smartphone’s Camera Quality to learn more.
  • 16GB internal memory
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4000mAh battery that works with an advanced power saving function to push battery life to a 2-day range
  • Flash Charge technology lets it charge 4.5x faster (15 minutes of charging could earn you 8 hours of phone calls)
  • 1.3GHz octa-core processor
  • Android 5.1

2. Infinix Hot 2 (X510)

The Infinix Hot 2 is the famous Android One smartphone for Africa. The idea behind Android One, and Infinix Hot 2 in general, is to ensure that everyone enjoys the latest Android OS version without having to invest in an expensive premium phone. With Google behind the manufacture scenes, you can count on the Hot 2 to be a perfectly balanced monster who is worth every cent in the price tag.

  • 5.0 inch display and 720×1280 resolution
  • Android 5.1 with guaranteed upgrades for each Android OS release
  • 16GB Internal memory
  • 1GB RAM to go with a capable 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 8MP rear camera with Auto Focus and LED
  • 2MP front camera
  • 3G connectivity

3. Infinix Note 2 LTE

This is the big brother to the common Infinix Note 2. The Note 2 LTE packs a bigger RAM (2GB) and supports the 4G/LTE Network standard making it a worthy option for people seeking to enjoy Safaricom’s 4G network.

You will have to pay an extra 1500 for the additional GB of RAM 4G LTE compatibility. The Note 2 costs 13,999 while the Note 2 LTE will cost you no more than 13,999. Do the math.


  • Octa-core 1.3GHz processor
  • 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage
  • 2G, 3G, 4G connectivity
  • 13MP Rear camera with flash
  • 2MP front camera
  • 6.00” display

4. Infinix Zero 3 (X552)

The Infinix Zero 3 retails at Ksh 18,500 in Kenya and it is Infinix’ first phone this year. The Zero 3 packs some impressive features that could easily satisfy the refined smartphone users. The camera is simply astonishing. And so is the processor-RAM combination. The Infinix Zero 3 is a king in its own under Ksh 20,000 price range.


  • 5.5” True HD IPS display (1080×1920, 440ppi resolution)
  • Android 5.1 (Lollipop)
  • Octa-core 2.0GHz processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 16GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128GB
  • Rear camera: 20.7MP
  • Front camera: 5MP
  • 2G/3G/4G connectivity
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3

5. Infinix Hot Note (X551)

At Ksh 9,999, this 5.5” 1.4GHz octa-core smartphone is a worthy bargain. I find the Infinix Hot Note rather impressive for a smartphone retailing at the lower end of middle-range smartphones in Kenya.


  • 5.5 inch IPS capacitive touch screen at 720×1280 (267 PPI)
  • 2G/3G network
  • Dual sim
  • 1.4GHz octa-core processor
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 16GB internal storage

6. Infinix Zero 2

Even though Infinix Zero 2 runs on a 2.0GHz octa-core coupled with 2GB of RAM, you will find the Android 4.4.2 it comes in quite the setback. Hopefully, Infinix will maximize on the Android One project and try to over update services to all high-end Infinix phones. The expected price is Ksh 18,500


  • 2.0GHz octa-core processor
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 5.0  inch AMOLED capacitive screen at 294ppi
  • 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera

That is my list of my favorite Infinix smartphones in Kenya. I have taken into consideration diverse performance needs and budgets to come up with a mix that gives true value for your money. Did I miss something? Let me know in the comments section below.
