2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Simple, no-frill design
  • Easy to hold and operate with one hand - and has a good grip
  • Has 'Face Unlock' that works quite well
  • The plastic back and glass front are prone to smudges and scratches (you should use a case and/or screen protector)

Display

  • Modern tall 5.45-inch HD+ screen, with a 18:9 aspect ratio - the glass on top of the display is curved from edges, which makes it easy to use and operate

Software

  • Infinix’s proprietary XOS UI over Android is decent as far as Android UIs go - it looks fairly neat, and carries some intuitive features - it’s customizable to quite an extent, including the app drawer layout, grid size, app icon theme, and also the text color - there’s also a good number of customizable gestures included (there is also some bloatware, but that can thankfully be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Performance, especially in multi-tasking, could be better, and there are lags here and there - even though on paper the performance should be similar to its main competitor, the Redmi 5A, but in real life, the Redmi 5A comes out ahead

Camera

  • Decent rear and front cameras given the price point - take decent portrait shots in good light - but you shouldn't expect much more than that

Battery

  • Good battery life - powered by a 3050 mAh battery, the phone keeps going for more than a day
  • No fast charging support - will take more than 3 hours to charge the battery from zero to 100 per cent

More

  • Overall, the Infinix Smart 2 is a feature-rich entry-level smartphone worthy of its price - it can compete well with the top phone in this segment, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, and even holds an edge on it in terms of a modern 18:9 aspect ratio screen (although it falls behind it in terms of performance)

  5. If you can't get the Redmi 5A, do consider Smart 2 - it's more or less equally good
