Infinix Zero 3
When new smartphones come in, their predecessors usually start seeing massive discounts directed at them. This is the case for the 2015 flagship Infinix Zero 3. The phone was the high-end offering from the company in 2015 and due to the presence of the Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus from 2016 as well as the looming release of the Zero 5, the Zero 3 has seen a significant dip in pricing, but the performance specs remain unchanged.
If you are looking for the most powerful Infinix phone priced at under Ksh 15,000, the Infinix Zero 3 is your safest bet. The phone packs an impressive 5.5-inch 1080p display screen that is protected by Corning’s Glass 3. Under the hood is a powerful MediaTek Helio X10 SoC mated with 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded.
The camera on the back has a massive 20.7MP lens with top features such as PDAF, 4K video recording, and dual-tone LED flash. The front has a 5MP lens for selfies and video calling. The battery on board is not bad either, a 3030mAh unit, and while it comes preinstalled with Android Lollipop, you can upgrade it to the newer Android Marshmallow.
Unlike other Infinix phones listed here, the Infinix Zero 3 has no fingerprint scanner, but you get 4G LTE connectivity. The Zero 3 can be yours for as little as Ksh 14,090.
Infinix S2 Pro
Released a few months ago, the Infinix S2 Pro is considered the go-to phone for selfie lovers. The major highlight is the front-facing dual-lens camera of 13MP+8MP. This setup boasts a massive 135-degree wide angle view for taking superior group selfies and on the back is a 13MP shooter that takes equally impressive shots.
Other specs of the Infinix S2 Pro include a 5.2-inch HD display screen, a MediaTek MT6753 processor mated with 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The battery capacity stands at 3000mAh and supports fast charging technology. Software-wise, the S2 Pro has Android Marshmallow out of the box, but an update to Nougat is already available for download.
You also get support for 4G LTE, dual-SIM and a fingerprint scanner, among other goodies. The Infinix S2 Pro is currently selling at Ksh 15,699.
Infinix Note 4
The latest Infinix phone in town, the Note 4 is one beauty that every Infinix fanatic would relish owning. It’s not the most powerful Infinix Note phone out there, but you’ll enjoy what it brings to the table.
The Infinix Note 4 has a 5.7-inch 1080p display screen, a MediaTek MT6753 SoC paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. For the battery, you get a decent 4300mAh unit that supports fast charging technology. Unlike the Infinix S2 Pro, you only get a single 8MP lens on the selfie camera and the back has a 13MP shooter.
The fingerprint scanner is front-mounted and the phone supports 4G LTE and dual-SIM connectivity. In terms of software, the Note 4 has Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. You can grab the phone at a decent price of just Ksh 13,999 on Jumia.
Infinix Note 3/Note 3 Pro
The Infinix Note 4 is the successor to the Note 3, but there’s not so much of a difference between the two. The Infinix Note 3 and Note 3 Pro have the same 6-inch display screen with a 1080p resolution and under the hood, you get a MediaTek MT6753 SoC paired with 2GB RAM on the former and 3GB RAM on the latter. The pair has the same 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card.
The back camera has a 13MP lens and the front comes in with a 5MP shooter for selfies. The batteries on board are decent 4500mAh units that support fast charging technology. For the software, Android Marshmallow powers them out of the box, but an update to Android 7.0 Nougat is ready for download.
Besides the differences in RAM, the Infinix Note 3 has 3G connectivity as compared to the 4G LTE found on the Note 3 Pro. Both phones have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. In terms of pricing, the standard Note 3 has a price tag of Ksh 14,499 while the Pro version is valued at Ksh 15,499, which is a little on the higher side of things.
Infinix Hot S
The Infinix Hot S is a solid phone for those who see any of the above choices as too expensive. The phone has just about the same hardware specs as the Infinix S2 Pro or even the Infinix Note 4 and Note 3.
You’ll be getting a 5.2-inch HD display screen, a MediaTek MT6753 SoC paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. The camera combination has a 13MP shooter on the back while the front has an 8MP lens for selfies, which should deliver great photography.
The Infinix Hot S comes with a 3000mAh battery unit, has a fingerprint scanner, supports 4G LTE connectivity and is powered by Android Marshmallow, which can be upped to the newer Android Nougat over the air.
The Hot S can be yours for a price of Ksh 14,500, but you can also get it via Avechi at Ksh 13,199.
Infinix Hot 4
Another Infinix phone that is worth looking at is the Hot 4. Unlike the Hot S, it comes with a bigger 5.5-inch display screen with an HD resolution. The specs under the hood are the weakest on this list, featuring a MediaTek MT6580 processor paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.
The back camera has an 8MP lens while the front gets a 5MP lens and software-wise, you get Android Marshmallow, which can be updated to Nougat. The real power of the Infinix Hot 4 comes with the battery, where the phone packs a massive 4000mAh unit that promises up to two days of use on a single charge.
There’s a fingerprint scanner and dual-SIM support, but you only get 3G connectivity, which should be fun for those who claim 4G is a data hog.
The Infinix Hot 4 is currently selling at just Ksh 9,599 on Jumia.
