  • regarding your specifications, the three phones are nice but since innjoo Max 2 RAM is manageable, it’s preferable to the other two phones when it comes price. What i think is the downside of innjoo phones is; despite their battery has high mAh when it dies off you cannot see where to buy it. Currently, I’m using innjoo pro note. Innjoo pro note runs on android 4.4;.
    kitkat, It packs 16GB ROM, 1.9GB RAM and has the same camera features as MAX 2.

      • I’ve used unhook fire before and the screen broke, I tried calling their customer care agent as Jumia directed me and they weren’t even picking my calls. imagine.. I had dump the phone like that and swr I’ll never use injoo produce again

  • I must confess am having a hard time choosing d best cuz j8,c8, used to be my best fone but based on ur review and d fact dat max2 plus also has an led flash for selfie I think I’II get that….tanx for d review….

  • Well infinix is a geneouse phone if I must say infinix is the best and I am getting mine on Wednesday here no dought at all I love the phone its cool and amazing I love infinix Archangel by name

  • Well infinix is a geneouse phone if I must say infinix is the best and I am getting mine on Wednesday here no dought at all I love the phone its cool and amazing Archangel by name

  • A friend advised that I go in for the c8 but with what I have heard do far I think the infinix will do just fine. You guys have succeeded in convincing me beyond reasonable doubt that the infinix is the best. Thanks.

  • I’ve used so many phones but in fact infinix is the best of all…infinix, Ghana’s number one smart phone.
