Design and Display
Here is a smartphone that comes with a modern budget look which entails a narrow build with a glossy back. The bezels around the display is also well deppreciated making it easier to fit in a bigger screen.
There is no notch here just the usual bezel housing the sensors, camera, speaker and LED flash. You’ve got somewhat the same bezel size at the bottom of the screen too with capacitive navigation buttons which are now moved on screen.
The available colours on the smartphone range from sandstone black, bordeaux red to serene gold.
Pressing the power button lights up the screen which is good at the price and will serve for regular functions. There is the usual lack of vibrant colour on display and blacks are not so great either.
However, the 6.0-inch LCD panel on the Infinix Smart 2 HD does well enough. And with a 1449 x 720 pixels resolution on it, you can watch movies and do other things if you’re not particularly crazed about picture quality.
Battery and Camera
You can be sure to enjoy quality time on your smartphone with the 3, 400mAh better placed inside the smartphone. This way, you can go ahead with your gaming, movie watching and social media bantering.
There is a MicroUSB hole for charging which would take much time than on the predecessor since you’ve got a relatively bigger battery here.
The camera prowess of the Infinix Smart 2 HD is limited despite the AI chant that was released with it. You can only hope for an okay shot considering the quality that comes with entry-level smartphones.
That said, there is an 8MP camera on both the front and back with different sensor though. You also have the flash available on both sides to light up your pictures in low light.

Furthermore, there is the 16GB RAM expandable of course, to 128GB with a Micro SD card. Looking at the specs, a Go Edition OS would have sufficed but instead what you’ve got is the Android 8.1 Oreo.
