Infinix Note 8 review: the Infinix Note 8 has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone costs N90,400 ($230) and it has no Xpen to accompany it in the box.
This is gradually becoming Infinix’ tradition to release a Note series without a xpen. It first started with the Infinix Note 7 series and now the Note 8 series too.

3 Upgrades In The Infinix Note 8
Here are three ways that the Infinix Note 8 is more advanced than its predecessor:
Firstly, is the improved cameras. Instead of the 48MP in the Note 7, the Infinix Note 8 took it higher to 64MP. While on the front, instead of a single selfie camera, the Note 8 has dual selfie cameras.
The second upgrade is the processor. The Infinix Note 8 is powered by the MediaTek helio G80 chip. It is an octa-core processor that is a little higher and better than the G70 found in the Note 7.
And the last upgrade herein is the usb-type C charging port now available in the Note 8 series. So basically if you are buying the Infinix Note 8, those are the 3 upgrades you would get.
Infinix Note 8, 64MP Camera Samples
Of all the quad rear cameras in the Infinix Note 8, none is an ultrawide lens. There is a 64MP main lens, 2MP macro lens, 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP video stability.
Overall, the Infinix Note 8 cameras are good for daytime pictures. Also, when under a good light condition, the images are crisp. But, the dark or super night mode is terrible. So you better use flashlight to snap night pictures.
The big display of the Infinix Note 8 is good for gaming and watching of movies. For the very long time I’ve been using this smartphone, it hasn’t lagged behind anytime. It gives you a smooth performance. Thanks to the 6GB RAM + Helio G80 gaming chip.
Big display consumes more battery. Infinix understood that theory very well. Hence, the smartphone was lifted with 5200mAh battery capacity with 18W fast charge enabled.
On the software part, the smartphone runs Android 10 out of the box on top Infinix XOS 7 skin software.
Infinix Note 8 Review – My Verdict
The Infinix Note 8i (has same MediaTek Helio G80 chip) which offers the same value at a cheaper price. Except on the aspect of camera performance that the Infinix Note 8 is better.
However, the fact still remains that the Infinix Note 8 is the most advanced device among all the Note series that Infinix has ever released.
And it’s the second best device from Infinix this year (2020), just behind the Infinix Zero 8.
