12 Best Infinix Phones You Can Get At The Moment

Since the launch of the first set of Infinix phones in 2013, Infinix has gradually taken over a large percentage smartphone market in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

They have gone from “Zero to Hot” as some would say it.

And they have literally gone from Zero to Hot 🙂 .

Infinix (branded as Infinix Mobility) is a mobile phone manufacturing company that is based in Hong Kong with their design company in Paris.

Like already said, a large percentage of smartphone users in Africa, especially in Nigeria has opted in for infinix phones due to its affordability and premium feel.

One thing Infinix is good at is the final look of the product. I mean the physical design. They took the design of cheap smartphones to a whole new level with Infinix Zero and Infinix Zero 2 especially.

Wondering the best infinix phone you can get at the moment?

I have done some research and compiled the top 12 best Infinix phones you can get in the market at the moment.

This is not a one time list. What I mean actually is that the list will be updated regularly as new infinix phones are launched and as old ones are being upgraded.

So let’s dive into the list…

Reply
    Odira Ndubuisi - August 17, 2016

    Sorry the big 6 doesn’t have flash for the front camera. If you really need that feature, then I suggest you wait for Note 3 that is likely going to come this August. Note 3 is an upgraded version of Note 2 (big 6). It is still a 6 inches smart phone with some features that the Note 2 doesn’t have, like flash for the front camera.

Thanks for your post, great work.
I have never used an Android phone, its always being BB
I would like to get one, the info from some blogs as per cheap phones says Gionee is better than Infinix, itel and Tecno. Is this true?
I need a Phone with good specs Android 6, excellent camera, not less than 2GB RAM etc
please suggest, thanks

Reply
    Odira Ndubuisi - August 17, 2016

    Everyone has their own view on which phone brand is better. For me I would say Infinix. You can go for Gionee if you enjoy carrying around heavy phones.
    From you requirements, Hot S and Zero 3 fit in very well. If you like phones with 6 inches screen, Note 2 also fits well with your requirements.

    And by the way, welcome to Android – the real smartphone world.
