The Infinix Smart 2 smartphone is a new flagship in the Kenyan market. It was announced and launched in 2018.
The phone is available on Jumia online market. The price is affordable for most of the people
The cost is Ksh 10,999.
As soon as you get your Infinix SMART 2 you shall enjoy so much since the features of the phone are easy to use and the battery lasts long.
When you analyze the body you should check the dimension, size, resolution and whether the screen touch is a multitouch
The phone I am reviewing has the dimension of 148 x 71 x 8.4 mm (5.83 x 2.80 x 0.33 in).
The weight is which is so light to carry and enjoy when handling it. You won’t get tired as you may think.
Another important feature is the dual SIM card feature. The make allows you use two smartphones at the same time. In this era when there are so many telecom networks where one tends to be cheaper than the other, it is good for you to consider having a phone which can handle two sim cards at the same time. I know it features you will love and enjoy so much.
Display of Infinix SMART 2
Under this category go through the manual and check the screen type, size, resolution and the multitouch ability.
The screen type is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colours. The screen offers the natural colours that you need to see daily without getting bored and tired.
The IPS LCD screen offers better viewing angles and high-quality colour reproduction.
In terms of images, the screen type produces clear images that are nice to view than those produced in the AMOLED screen
When you will be outside in the sun you will realise that some phones are hard to view the screen making it difficult to use it. That is where the IPS LCD screen comes in handy since it is viewable and you can easily read it without encountering any problem.
When you compare the IPS LCD with the AMOLED you will discover that the IPS LCD lasts longer than the AMOLED. The IPS LCD has long lasting organic constituents.
The screen size 5.5 inches, 78.1 cm2 (~74.3% screen-to-body ratio). The 5.5 inches screen offers a big portion of the body to view the screen features.
The resolution is 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~293 ppi density).
The 18:9 ratio is advantageous to many of us since it allows the opening of two apps simultaneously. In addition, there is an option of copying and pasting with a lot of easiness.
The other advantage of the 18:9 ratio is the high amount of content consumption.
The Screen is a multitouch
The advantages of a multitouch screen include
- Fast when performing tasks since you can do more than two tasks at ones.
- You can do tasks simultaneously without straining
Under this subtopic, I will discuss two aspects.
- )Operating system
The operating system that is installed on the phone is Android 8.1 Oreo
Oreo has bee existence for a time now but as time changes the manufactures work out to improve the operating systems in the smartphones. The aim of improving the operating system is to improve phone performance.
Note that the latest operating systems in the market are better than their predecessors. They come with improved features that you cannot easily find in the old fashion models
Android 8.1 comes as a replacement of Android Oreo 8.0. In the Oreo 8.1, there are better features lacking in the 8.0. The 8.1 has an additional/improved cheeseburger emoji. If you are deep into emoji use, you will find it impressive and cool to use such an added/improved feature.
The other advantage of the 8.1over the 8.0 and the previous systems is the use of the battery. In the new operating system, it is easier to monitor battery use.
The CPU is the one in charge of processing data that gets into the phone. For you to get better results you a need a good CPU
The CPU runs all the Application that you use daily. It is a platform where your smartphone software and hardware interact to produce results. For example, you want to send somebody cash, you will have to press the name and phone number of the person you will wish to send cash.
The processors have core arrangements, graphics handling unit, RAMs and processors in one another.
The processor of the smartphone can be equated to the human brain which does a lot of tasks
The GPUs gives the processor the ability to run the commands well.
The Infinix SMART 2 has Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 or Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53
The CPU improves the phone performance and give out the best results when you are handling your smartphone.
Remember to check the phone memory whenever you want to buy the phone.
Any smartphone has two types of memory. There are RAM and ROM on the smartphone.
The RAM is the memory that enables the operating system and the phone software to run to run smoothly without any single lag or any delay. The big the RAM the higher the performance speed. We are in a generation in which there are smartphones of up to 8 GB RAM though most smartphones in the market range between 1GB and 3GB
Infinix SMART 2 has 3 GB RAM that makes it fast enough when performing functions.
The phone ROM is 32 GB. The ROM is the memory you use to store your data, documents, pictures, movies, music, Apps and any other form of data. The bigger the ROM the more the content and the longer the time you take to fill it. Imagine of having a smartphone but taking over 6 years to fill the ROM space, how much content will you have stored in it? I bet so much content that will always remind you vividly of what happened where and why it had to happen.
The main camera is single of 13 MPs and PDAF. The features of the camera are Dual-LED flash, panorama, HDR.
The selfie camera has 8MPs and there is Dual-LED flash.
The alert types are Vibration; MP3, WAV ringtones
There is a loudspeaker which is handy in most circumstances. It can help you keep on communicating if you are too busy or if your mouthpiece is faulty
There is a 3.5 mm jack that you can use too in communication.
The following are the sensors on the phone:
- Fingerprint (16GB/1GB only)
- Thread messages. It is not easy to lose a message and it is so easier to track what you have been chatting with your friends.
- There is MMS, Email, Push Email and IM.
