It offers a larger display, more powerful camera, newer software and long-lasting battery life.
Let’s look at the review of the Note 2 in details…
Infinix Big 6 is a 6-inch mobile device, which makes it fit in well to the phablet category. The device has 86% screen-to-body ratio, which means that the screen make up 86% of the device as you can see in the picture below.
The device is 159.5 mm tall, 82.5 mm wide and 9.3 mm thick.
The big screen of the device might not appeal to everyone, especially those that like to handle their phone with one hand, but it is very suitable for gaming and watching of videos.
The device has a fine finishing and premium feels.
The front camera of the device is located at the top-left corner, while the back camera can be found on the top-center of the back of the device, with the LED flash right beside it on the right.
The loudspeaker can be found on the bottom-right corner of the device with “NOTE” on its left side.

Overall, the design of the device is not bad at all.
