Pros of Note 6
Here are some reasons you may want to buy this device.
Sleek Design and Quality Build
It ticks most of the right boxes when it comes to design and build quality.
The device looks appealing with its rectangular metal chassis that has a subtle curve on the edges while its thickness and weight are just 7.7mm and 173g respectively – this is one of the thinnest Infinix phones on the market.
Rather than the regular smooth, glassy looking plastic used in most of the new Infinix phones, the Note 6 is designed in a unique way as it is embodied in a rectangular metal chassis with a subtle curve on the edges, which makes it feel ultra-thin when holding it.
However, one of the advantages of this new design is that it enhances the phone’s fingerprints while also making it scratch-resistant. However, if you are looking for a bezel-less smartphone, this is not the device for you.
The device sports chunky top and bottom bezels for items like earpiece, camera lens, and LED flash while the fingerprint scanner is also placed in the top middle area of the phone.
In addition to the above, sitting on the left side of this device is the SIM and microSD card while the volume keys and power button are positioned on the right side.

Also, the Note 6’s bottom edge is ably occupied by X Pen, an audio jack, a microphone, a micro USB port, as well as a down-firing loudspeaker.
More importantly, if you’d like to buy the Note 6, there are three major colors you can choose from, which includes Mocha Brown, Midnight Black and Aqua Blue – all of which looks modern and beautiful.
Large & Stunning Display
In recent times, smartphone manufacturers are beginning to increase their devices’ display size as much as possible, and Infinix seems not to be left out.
It is equipped with a massive 6.01-inch AMOLED screen with full HD resolution (1,080×2160 pixels), which helps in rendering graphical contents sharply and vibrantly.
This device is indeed worth the money as its display quality can be compared with pricier and competing smartphones like TECNO Camon 11 (Pro), Samsung Galaxy M20, and even Redmi Note 7.
Another strong point of this device is that it has excellent Colour saturation and a wider viewing angles, which means you will be able to enjoy a crisp, bright, and captivating display while accessing various graphical content on your Note 6; be it games, apps, videos, pictures, live streaming, among others.
X Pen is included!
The X Pen is one of the most-sought-after features in modern smartphones, and thankfully it comes with note 6.
With this magical pen, you can easily create note, write memo, view files, take and write on screenshots, draw and paint objects, to mention but a few.
Again, it will interest you that the X pen is pretty easy to activate and use; all you need do is to hold the pen close to your device’s display and press the X Pen’s button – that’s all.
If you are looking for Stylus-enabled phone but can’t afford Samsung or other premium devices, it is a cheaper alternative for you!
Crystal Clear Camera
This device is equipped with not 1, not 2, but 3 quality cameras!
Sitting at the back of this device is a set of advanced triple camera system packed with AI capabilities, with a 2-megapixel depth sensor, a 16MP shooter, and an 8MP wide-angle lens – all of which occupies the top, middle, and bottom level positions respectively.
The smartphone also sports a 16-megapixel front-facing camera for capturing breathtaking selfies and videos even under low light conditions.
With this amazing camera combination, rest assured that you’ll be able to capture wonderful events around you, take selfie with friends, and record short videos to watch or upload to your social media accounts.
Having said that, it is equally important to inform you that it has no image stabilizer for balancing out small camera shakes, which means your photography or videography may appear shaky if your hands are not steady enough while capturing.
Impressive Speed & Performance
Who still buys a phone that hangs or lags during operation? Absolutely none!
It is powered by an efficient MediaTek Helio P35 Chipset with octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU, alongside a huge 64 GB of internal storage with 4 GB of RAM.
With the above combination, this device is more than enough to help load some graphical applications and games without lagging or crashing. That is, you can seamlessly play your favorite games, launch multiple programs, and switch between apps without any delay or unnecessary slowdown.
However, it is worthy to note that this device is more flawless when it is handling less-demanding applications than the advanced ones.
Therefore, if you intend playing more-demanding games, it is best you change the settings to a lower mode for a very smooth and enjoyable gaming experience.
Extended Battery Life
How good is its battery?
It sports a powerful non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery which allows you to watch movies, take pictures, record videos, play games, surf the internet, view documents, and lots more for a very good amount of time. Depending on your level of usage, this phone can last you for several hours or even days before you will need to charge it again.
However, the major drawback of the Infinix Note 6 is that it does not support fast/wireless charging, which means you may charge it for hours before the battery would be fully charged.
Cons of Note 6
Here are some reasons you might not like it:
- Has bloatware
- No image stabilizer for balancing out small camera shakes
- Has chunky bezels and can’t be easily operated using one hand
- Does not support Fast and Wireless Charging
Verdict: Is it Worth Your Money
Yes, it delivers real value for money, especially when considering its stunning AMOLED screen, AI-powered X-pen, crystal clear camera, efficient octa-core processor, and longer battery life.
The major downside of the device is that it does not support fast charging and can’t be easily operated using one hand. This aside, we recommend the Infinix Note 6 – it’s worth the money!
