The problem with most budget-friendly phones is that they aren’t always feature-laden; in other words affordable smartphones tend to compromise on certain features that you may actually need.

With the Infinix Note 8, you no longer need to compromise on great features when you are cash-strapped for a new smartphone, because it even comes with certain bells and whistles even certain premium phones do not. Let’s find out why.

Furthermore, the 20.5:9 aspect ratio means widescreen content will fit better thanks to thinner black bars, so that you can enjoy watching videos as if you were in a cinema.
