Who in Kenya does not own a smartphone? Very few people lack smartphones in Kenya probably because they chose not have one or the smartphone that they had was stolen in one of the streets in Nairobi. Out of the people who own smartphones, I can guarantee you that two out of five people own an Infinix phone in Kenya. I remember that there was a time when the Infinix smartphone was almost a nuisance to most people. It was like a plague that had gotten on to everyone more so campus students. Everywhere you turned be it on a bus or in the market, you had to spot the Infinix cell phone.
A lot of fun was made concerning the Infinix mobile phone and to be honest with you, I was among the people who would not imagine buying that smartphone. I expected the craze about the Infinix phones to subside after a while but this did not happen. It took on the Kenyan market with such a storm that the jokes on it went silent and it becomes acceptable in a way that almost everyone now owns this phone including me. The only thing that I asked myself was why the rise in such a short span of time and I got the answer. Infinix smartphones have given Kenyans some of the craziest deals with smartphones that have made us fall in love with this phone.
To start with, let us take a look at some of the best deals given to us by the Infinix smartphone.
Infinix Hot 2 X510
This is one of the Infinix smartphones that has gotten so many Kenyans on board with the craze that is going on around us. Infinix Hot 2 X510 has some of the best features that you can get on a phone and with the best price in Kenya. Let me go through the specs first before I tell you the price at which you can get this smartphone.
Display – Infinix Hot 2 X510 has a 5.0-inch screen with a HD resolution of 720 × 1280 Pixels. This is the display that will give you one of the best images with your phone and give you great graphics if you are the gaming person. One good thing about this phone is the fact that it gives you the best grip because of the size that it comes with. I think most Kenyans who love something small and good at the same time will settle for this deal.
Android OS – runs on the 5 .1 version which is among the latest versions around. The good thing with the Infinix Hot 2 X510 is that it can be upgraded to 6.0 version as soon as it comes on board. This means that this Infinix smartphone will give Kenyans the experience that they would want to have when it comes to some of the latest apps in Kenya.
RAM – the Infinix Hot 2 X510 gives you the privilege of choosing between a 1 GB RAM and a 2GB RAM. This is the perfect RAM that will run all your apps with the ease that you need. You can forget about your smartphone having to always hang if you have to switch between two or more apps. I always say that Kenya is a fast moving nation and we cannot afford to be slowed down by a smartphone. This is why the Infinix smartphones comes in handy.
Internal memory – A 16GB internal memory is perfect for this phone which is quite impressive if you are the kind of person who has so much to save on your phone. With such kind of storage, there is a high probability that you will not even need to use an external memory card. In the case that you will need it, it is expandable to up to 32GB that I am sure will save most of your documents without much hustle.
Camera – The Infinix Hot 2 X510 has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera that gives you some of the best images that you would want to have. At least if you have been around some Kenyans with the Infinix smartphone, you will agree with me that it gives some of the best images.
With around KSh 8,000 you will comfortably walk home with this smartphone. It is actually competing with some of the most expensive smartphones in Kenya that are in the range of KSh 20, 000.
Infinix Hot 3
This is another smartphone that is worth every coin that you may want to spend on a smartphone. If you are walking on the street you can be sure to meet a few people with the Infinix Hot 3. I will credit this to the fact that this is a good smartphone and that is why people will walk in the stores every day just to buy this smartphone. After going through some of the specs it comes with, you will judge whether the Infinix Hot 3 is worth your money or not.
Display – Infinix Hot 3 has a 5.5-inch display and that is one thing that makes this phone a darling to most Kenyans. This is because we will not deceive ourselves but we live phones that have large screens. The display is of high quality and you can enjoy watching videos with your smartphone.
Android OS – the Infinix Hot 3 runs on the 5.1 Android version which is one of the latest and most phones run on it. This means that if you get yourself this phone you will not feel shortchanged because you will get some of the best apps on your smartphone. If you are tired of using a smartphone that has an outdated Android version, the Infinix Hot 3 will sort out your problem.
RAM – with Infinix Hot 3 you have the option of choosing the phone that comes with a 1GB RAM or one which has a 2GB RAM. At this point, I would advise you to go for the one that comes with the 2GB RAM. This is because the higher the RAM the better the speed that you get. For Kenyans who are not heavy users of the apps on their phones, the one that comes with 1GB will work quite well with them.
Storage – we all love smartphones that have large internal storage eliminating the need to incur the cost of buying a memory card. A 16GB internal memory on the Infinix Hot 3 will give you ample space to store some of the best images and documents that you may have on your phone. If you are smart enough then you can be uploading some of your data on Google drive and such storages. This will make it possible for you to always have space to save your documents and you may never need to buy a memory card. In the case where such a need arises, the storage can be expanded up to 32GB with the use of a Micro SD card.
Camera – the Infinix Hot 3 has an 8MP back camera and a 2MP front camera that is capable of giving you some of the best images that you would ever want to have on your smartphone. I love the camera because the images are clear and it might be difficult to get a new phone in Kenya with the price that the Infinix Hot 3 comes with and can give you quality images as this phone does.
Other factors that make this phone tick is that the battery capacity which is awesome as it comes with a 3000mAh battery capacity. This gives you something that you have never received from any other smartphone. Your phone can be on for over a whole day and you don’t have to carry a power bank everywhere you go. With all the amazing features you can get it a price of less than KSh 8, 000. I think that this is a great deal from a phone that has so much to offer to the user than what we may get from other deals in town.
The above are not only the Infinix smartphones in Kenya that will give you some of the best and crazy deals that you may not get anywhere else. The list is endless and there are so many options that you can choose from the Infinix brand and the price will not be unfair to you.
I guess I finally got the answer to why everyone has been carried away by the Infinix wave that has swept all over Kenya. The other thing that will make you go for this phone at any day is the fact that it will give you the best quality that you are sometimes left to wonder whether you deserve the deal or not. If you are keen you will notice that the numbers of the people who own the Infinix smartphones have increased over the last few years. I expect that this numbers will shoot up as the year progress.
