Over the past few weeks, I have travelled to the coastal edges of Kenya, thanks to the Tech Tamasha festival and throughout my trip to Mombasa then to Kisumu, I have chosen to go with the Infinix Note 5 as my companion.
A lot can be said about the device, for instance, it has amazing battery life thanks to its 4500mAh battery that delivers close to seven hours screen-on-time on heavy usage as well as mountain peak software experience thanks to the device being part of the Android One program.
A quick rundown of the Infinix Note 5 specifications include:
- 6.0-inch Full HD Display in an 18:9 aspect ratio
- MediaTek Helio P23 Processor
- 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage
- 12MP main camera and a 16MP selfie shooter
