The Infinix Hot Note X551 is one of the hottest budget phablets in the Kenyan Market right now. The Note X551 features some of the best technical specifications that I have seen on a budget handset.
Here is what the new Phablet on the block has to offer.
Infinix Hot Note X551 Technical Specifications
Display Size: 5.5 inches
Display Type: IPS
Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 267 ppi
Screen Protection: None
The Infinix Hot Note X551 display is in comparison to the Infinix X507 0.5 inches larger and generally more awesome.
The Note X551 features a 720 x 1280 pixels HD display, and thus offers a crisp viewing experience.
Frame Dimensions: 155 x 77 x 8.9 mm
The Infinix Hot Note X551 is huge. It’s about the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and is a fine choice for buyers out shopping for monster handsets.
Interestingly, the Infinix Hot Note X551 is just 4 grams lighter than the Galaxy Note 4. One can’t help arguing that this could be a deliberate move to make the Note X551 look and feel like the Note 4.
Operating System: Android 4.4 (KitKat)
CPU: Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7
Internal Memory: 16GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 32 GB
A Powerful Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU powers the Infinix Hot Note X551. This is a far cry from the 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 805 CPU that powers the Galaxy Note 4.
However, taking price into consideration, Infinix was extremely generous with the Infinix Note X551. This is in the context that Quad-core CPUs are pretty much a standard for devices in its price range.
Other than that, you get 16GB internal memory plus some 1 GB RAM for multi-tasking with the Infinix Hot Note X551. This is exactly similar to what you will get with the Infinix X507.
Rear Camera: 8 MP
Secondary Camera: 2 MP
LED Flash: Yes
An 8 MP Rear Camera and a 2 MP selfie camera is what you get with the Infinix Note X551. A 5 MP selfie camera would have been awesome considering that the feature is gradually becoming the standard for mid-range devices, but I guess that will be too much to ask from a budget device.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: 4000 mAh
The battery capacity of the Infinix Note X551 is one of the best features of the device. The device has one of the largest battery capacity for devices in the market.
The 4000 mAh Note X551 battery beats the Li-Ion 3220 mAh Galaxy Note 4 Battery and is just 100 units less than the Li-Po 4100 mAh battery found on the Huawei Ascend Mate 7.
It is worth noting that Infinix brags that a 55-minutes charging session of the Infinix Note X551 takes the device through a day and a half.
It is safe to say that the Infinix Note X551 is a budget alternative of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The Infinix Note X551 however, can’t really compare much with the Galaxy Note 4. The device is, however, still a fine choice for buyers seeking for an awesome Phablet experience while on a budget.
One of the interesting bits about the device is its price. The Inifinix X507 is priced at about Ksh. 7,000 and this is just Ksh. 3000 less than the Note X551.
It thus makes little economic sense to buy the Hot X507 rather than the Note X551 (unless you are very strict with your budget or are hater of enormous displays).
It is, however, a proven fact that Smartphone buyers love large screens and my bet is that the Infinix Note X551 will be a massive hit in Kenya.
