  1. We discovered that Infinix phones parts are not available in the market. What is the producer doing about the availability of the part, especially batteries?

  2. Pls, which would advice one to get between Infinix Hot Note and Infinix Zero? Also, I learnt there are two types of Infinix Zero (I.e one with rear 13MP and 5MP front cameras and the other of 13MP back and 2MP front cameras. Pls, revert

    • Hi Lateef, I would advise you to go for Infinix hot note as it have everlasting battery capacity than Zero.
      Yes there are two types of Infinix zero but only one is available for now, the second with 13MP and 5MP would be launch on June 4. We would update you on the device just keep visiting and subscribe for more updates.

  3. Please I want to use an infinix phone so I decided to browse and know what it entails then I got to know we have infinix hot note and infinix zero , I read about them and became interested in the infinix zero because it has more qualities than the hot note unless with the battery capacity. I also want one that has a long lasting battery and here is the case the battery for the zero does not last. What do I do now?

  4. RAM looks okay and the rear cam, promising. even the front cam is better than a lot of today’s mid-range smartphones, some of Lumia’s models being the prime example. though i feel it could use a bit more battery.

    • The Infinix Hot Note is better in battery with about 5 to 6 days on normal use without network connections and wifi. But on network connection and wifi you can use it for up to 2 days.

    • Infinix hot 2 is not same as infinix hot note. Both are great smartphones with different specs. You can go for any one of your choice but if you consider more battery life go for hot note but if you want a more advanced performance but low battery power just buy hot 2.

  10. Comment…d infinix hot 2,looks too cheap 4 me,in d sense of d material used in making it,d infinix hot 2 and infinix hot note which is more sophsicated.

Both are similar, infinix zero have 5 inch display and lenovo a 7000 5.5 inch, zero has internal storage than lenovo, zero has camera than lenovo, lenovo has more battery life than zero. Depends on your choice and what specs you want. Hope this is helpful

  13. Apart from all d specifications mentioned above like long serving battery,pls i want to ask that is d hot note camera is bright as the blackberry does?

    • Hi Hammed, we have different cameras for different phones so it depends on the megapixels, hot note has 8megapixel camera so find out what camera the blackberry has and compare. As far as have been using hot note the camera is sharp and clear enough for me.

  14. Pls am using Invinix hot not, to my greatest amazement, the battery does not last up to 1 day. Even when it 100% charged. Even when am not browsing. Pls what must have gone wrong. Pls how can I get the original battery to add to this one? Thanks.

    • Am using the phone and the battery lasts me for a day, but the only solution I can suggest is take the phone to any infinix office and request for battery replacement because the phone battery is inbuilt.

  15. Comment…honestly I have got my self stunk in browsing for about 4 days now researching for affordable wonderfully made mobile phones to purchase unfortunately i realised that infinix products have more of what I desire. in conclusion, infinix hot note pro is awesome but my problem is the camera, and my question to ask is, is there any infinix hot note pro with 13 megapixel and front camera 8 megapixel with flash please I need answers now because I need today

    • As for thw storage part of it have been used to install phone software and other apps that comes by default. October 1 is a Nigerian movie that talks about Nigeria Independence and the file type can be opened with a mxplayer or vlcplayer you can download from playstore. otherwise you can delete the movie.

  17. Thanks for replying,but I thought its 2GB RAM was for the default apps,why encroach into the 16GB ROM.they should have indicated that it had the 16GB total space if it did and give details of it, as they do in other phones.Thanks

  18. Pls how do I add images to my contacts and also to block people from calling and the front camera is not too good it usually blurred pictures… Pls how will I set the front camera
