Infinix Note 3 X601 Full Review: To Beast Or Not To Beast?

In light of Nigeria’s recession, a lot of people are looking for good-looking ,durable, low priced and efficient smartphones that wouldn’t break the bank. The Infinix Note 3 X601 is just that. 

Now you reckon i have been using the Infinix Note 3 for over a month and i have gotten really comfortable with the form factor which anyone could expect from a 6-inch screen phablet device. Yes, the Note 3 is a phablet, however, its thin bezels may have you fooled into thinking it’s just a 5.5 inch phone because it fits into your hand just as easy.  The Note 3  features a finger print sensor at the back and you can watch my unboxing video to see the improvements of the Infinix Note 3 over the Note 2.



The Note 3 is also very hard to drop accidentally because it is not slippery at all. The third party cases are also readily available in the market and i bought a clear rubber case just to protect the shiny body after 1 month without scratches….what can i say, i’m a careful chap.

The front facing screen is an LCD IPS full HD display in 1080P. This just means it’s really bright and the colors are punchy. A lot of people argue that any higher pixel count after a 1080P display cannot be discerned by the human eye.


The 13MP camera at the back is really neat for high quality shots.  See photos shot with the Infinix Note 3 below.






The Octacore processor on the Note 3 is more than capable of handling every app on the android playstore that you throw at it. What do i mean by more than capable? I mean, it doesn’t lag in any way, form or kind. I breezed through all kinds of apps in my day-to-day usage and i haven’t had any stutter or lag. I think in the end, we all want a trusted companion more than any unfinished cutting edge.  The Note 3 is running the Android Marshmallow 6.0 with Infinix XOS UI slapped on it.

I cannot wait to jump into the good stuff, the battery life. The Note 3 carries a hefty 4500mAh battery. The Infinix Note 3 is said to last up to 200mins of talk time with just 5mins of charge and people have put that to the test in other reviews and found this to be true. I cannot engage in a 200min phone call so i put the phone through my own heavy testing.

My daily usage of the Infinix Note 3 is basically Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, streaming videos on youtube, surfing the web and gaming.  The Note 3 easily lasts me 2 whole days doing all of these and amazingly has so much juice to spare that it has me wondering whether to charge or push it to its limits. Now, my usage may differ from yours but it is heavy because not a lot of activities drain any battery as fast as gaming, you can ask any gamer. 




I have released 2 gaming reviews for those gamers out there who wish to see how well the games run on the Infinix Note 3.


A lot could be said about this 6-inch phablet but the most important thing is that it is the device that could eliminate those long days that you wished for a miracle socket to power your dear smartphone. No more long days, just keep talking. I have to say that after being spoiled by the beastly battery of the Note 3, i'm slowly withdrawing from regular sized phones with regular battery capacities which is something i never expected.
