Infinix Note 5 VS Infinix Note 4: is the Infinix Note 5 a worthy successor? Just barely two months after the release of the Infinix Hot 6, Infinix Mobility is making the headline again. This time around it’s the Infinix Note 5, which is a successor to the 2017’s Infinix Note 4. A lot of smartphone users will agree with me that the Infinix Note 4 didn’t do enough to outclass the Infinix Note 3. So this leaves Infinix Mobility with a great deal of tasks in making sure the new Infinix Note 5 surpass the Infinix Note 4 and probably the Infinix Note 3 (the best smartphone in the Infinix Note series so far).

The Note series has been one of the most successful series for Infinix Mobility. And it’s somewhat like a flagship for the OEM company. It’s probably my best series from them and we all hope the new Infinix Note 5 doesn’t disappoint. Well, a detailed comparison between the Infinix Note 5 and the Infinix Note 4 will tell us more about that.
