The competition has risen to the notch and recently released Smartphones Xiaomi Mate 10 pro, Vivo V7 plus, Oppo F5 have already taken the front seat. Infinix, not being popular enough and limiting its features to the way it wants has not piqued the interest that the other Chinese phones had. It didn't strive to offer a palatable plate in the Indian market and also it is hard to find a place in 'in-demand' list. The price it offered seems reliable but by the overall impressions of the phone, it looks no desirable and enchanting.
