Now listen to this;

Without mincing words here, the Infinix Zero 8 as at when writing this article, is currently the very best, the most powerful, and the most expensive Infinix smartphone that you can get your hands on right now. Period.

It weirds the daring gaming optimized Mediatek Helio G90T SoC, that is paired to an ass-whooping 8 Gigabytes of RAM size, which is in return wired down to a chunky 128 Gigabytes of internal storage size that can even further be expanded via a MicroSD card.

As if those aren’t enough, this also happens to be the first and only Infinix phone as at the moment to wield a 90Hz screen refresh rate out of the box, which makes it the most ideal Infinix phone for gaming, and it even leaves the likes of the Infinix Note 7 and 8 in the dust, which were originally themed and marketed as gaming-centric smartphones.

On the back of the phone, you’re getting a 64MP Quad camera system that comprises of one 64MP main shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a second 2MP lens for taking macro (closeup) shots.

The front is characterized by a gigantic 48MP main lens that is complemented by an 8MP ultrawide lens.

The Infinix Zero 8 can record videos of up to 4k resolution at 30fps for both the front and back cameras, and can even do super slow-motion video recording at a time-freezing 960fps, with the resolution being capped at 720p.

Cool right?

Now they say that “with great honor, comes great responsibility”, well, in the case of the Zero 8, I’ll rephrase that and say instead, that “with great specs, comes great prices“.

What I’m trying to say is that the Infinix Zero 8 is not your regular sub-$200 Infinix mobile phone, as this one crosses over the $250 price tag, and as at the time of writing this article, the Infinix Zero 8 currently costs an eye-watering amount of 123,200 NGN from Slot outlets.

So if you have that amount of cash to spend on a smartphone, and you want all the best of spec and features that Infinix can offer right now in a smartphone, then the Infinix Zero 8 should definitely be added to your list of best Infinix phones to buy in 2021.

2. Infinix Note 8

  • 6.95 Inches 720p (HD+) IPS LCD dual hole-punch display.
  • 64MP quad rear camera setup.
  • 16MP dual front-facing cameras.
  • No Stylus (X-Pen).
  • Mediatek Helio G80 (12nm) processor.
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage.

Best Infinix phones to buy in 2021

In case you feel that the Infinix Zero 8 is way out of your budget, but you still fancy its performance in terms of speed, and the 64MP camera that it came along with it, then the Infinix Note 8 is the closest thing that can give that vibe and feel, as the Zero 8.

Wielding a still powerful Mediatek Helio G80 processor, 6 Gigabytes of RAM, and up to 128 Gigabytes of internal storage size, the Infinix Note 8 will not leave you wanting for more in terms of performance.

And not to mention that with its humongous 6.95 Inches display, we can confidently say that the Note 8 is targeted at chronic gamers and heavy media consumers, with the only downside of this display being that the resolution is still capped at 720p, with a pixel density of 258 PPI for a 6.95 inches panel.

But like I mentioned earlier, the 64MP main camera on this thing was directly lifted from the Zero 8 and coupled into it.

So in terms of picture quality, you should be getting the same level of crispness and lots of details, as with the Zero 8.

The Infinix Note 8 boots Android 10 out of the box, and for the first time on the Infinix Note lineup, we’re getting a USB Type-C charging port, and this one is wired down to an 18W fast charging system, just like the Note 7 before it.

So once again, and like I said earlier, if you feel that the Zero 8 is too expensive for you to afford, but you still want something that comes very close to it, then the Infinix Note 8 should definitely be on your list of best Infinix phones to get in 2021.

3. Infinix Note 8i

  • 6.78 Inches 720p (HD+) IPS LCD hole-punch display.
  • 48MP quad rear camera setup.
  • 8MP front-facing lens.
  • No Stylus (X-Pen).
  • Mediatek Helio G80 (12nm) processor.
  • 4/6GB RAM + 64/128GB internal storage.
  • Android™ 10+ XOS 7 Dolphin.
  • 5200mAh Battery + 18W fast charging.
  • USB Type-C charging port.
  • Price: 71,500 NGN.

Infinix Note 8i (4GB + 64GB) @ 72,100 NGN, Slot NG.
Infinix Note 8i (6GB + 128GB) @ 86,300 NGN, Slot NG.

Take it or leave it, the Infinix Note 8i is simply a rebranded and repackaged Infinix Note 7, but, with a slightly better processor, 200mAh more battery, and a USB Type-C charging port.

Aside from these three differences which I don’t even consider to be that much of a differentiating factor between them, there is absolutely nothing different between the two phones.

So the take here is, if you liked everything from the Infinix Note 7, but don’t have up to 90,000 NGN to shed out for it, then the Infinix Note 8i is a much better deal and an absolute steal for 72,100 NGN.

Like I mentioned earlier, you’re getting a slightly better processor (Helio G80 vs G70), a +200mAh battery (5200mAh vs 5000mAh), and even a USB-C charging port.

In spite of these, you’re still getting a pretty large 6.78 Inches LCD display which is still capped at 720p resolution like the last model before it, same 48MP main camera lens, android 10 + XOS 7 Dolphin to boot, etc.

Personally, I don’t even see a reason why anyone will want to skip the Note 8i at 72,100 NGN and go for the Note 7 with lower specs at 94,000 NGN, that will probably be the silliest thing to do in 2021.

Best Infinix phones to buy in 2021

The Infinix Note 7 coming as the fourth best Infinix phone to buy in 2021, it was among the first Infinix phones to launch in 2020, and trust me when I say that this phone packs one hell of a punch.

Armed with a humongous 6.95 Inches display, a Mediatek Helio G70 processor, Android™ 10 out of the box, 4 or 6 Gigabytes of RAM size that is paired with 64 or 128 Gigabytes of internal storage sizes respectively, and a beefy 5000mAh battery with up to 18W fast charging speeds, we can confidently say that the Infinix Note 7 is once again, aimed at chronic mobile gamers and heavy media consumers, just like the Note 8 and Zero 8 after it.

Though it has its downsides too, like the fall from using an OLED display panel on its predecessor, the Note 6, down to using LCD on this one, and even the drop in resolution as well, 720p, all the way down from 1080p on the Note 6.

Oh! And the absence of a stylus (X-Pen) as well.

Yes, the Infinix Note 7 doesn’t come with an XPen, and to be honest, I don’t know how to feel about this, considering the fact that the XPen has always been a symbolic feature that sets the Infinix Note series apart from all Infinix phones out there.

But if none of those bother you, and you just want a smartphone with raw and untamed performance, a huge display, and a very long-lasting battery, then this one here should definitely be among your list of best Infinix phones to buy in 2021, and nothing should stop you from getting it. Not even Xiaomi.

Infinix S5 Pro

Now, if you’re looking for a smartphone that combines both style, class, and camera prowess in one package, then the Infinix S5 Pro is the ideal phone for you.

Coming in with a staring 6.53 Inches 1080p (Full HD+) display as opposed to 720p (HD+) on most other Infinix phones, the S5 Pro will give you more clarity and crispness when viewing content on it.

In addition to that, the Infinix S5 Pro happens to be the first and only Infinix smartphone as at the time of writing this article, to ship with a pop-up front-facing camera, which means that the display is free from any notch or hole punches, and that simply translates to an even more immersive viewing experience.

Aside from the flush high-resolution display on this thing, the phone comes running Android 10 out of the box, alongside Infinix XOS 6.0 Dolphin.

Read AlsoInfinix XOS 7 Dolphin UI review (Everything you need to know about Infinix latest version of its customized OS).

It ships with a Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 processor, which is paired with either 4 or 6 Gigabytes of RAM sizes, and it trickled down to either 64 or 128 Gigabytes of internal storage sizes, respectively.

The phone ships with a 48MP rear-facing camera, and another 40MP front-facing one, though there are versions with 16MP rear-facing camera, and either a 32MP or 16MP front-facing camera.

So like I said earlier, if you want class, style, performance, and camera prowess all in one package, then the Infinix S5 Pro is definitely the best Infinix phone that you have been looking for. No caps.

Best Infinix phones to buy in 2021

Just so you know, the Infinix Hot 10 is the hottest and best Infinix Hot phone that anyone can get their hands on right now, but, just so you know;

The Hot 10 is simply a rebranded and repackaged Infinix Hot 9 with a much better processor, and I’m talking of the Mediatek Helio G70 chipset, the exact same processor that was used on the Note 7 and Note 7 Lite smartphones before it.

The display size is pretty large as well, at 6.78 Inches, same as the one on the Note 8i.

And in terms of camera, you’re getting a 16MP main lens that is further garnished with a 2MP macro lens, a second 2MP depth sensor, and a QVGA sensor.

You see? Just a slight non-significant upgrade from the 13MP main lens that you’ll get on the Hot 9.

So like I said earlier, the Infinix Hot 10 is simply a repackaged Hot 9 with a much better processor.

So, the take here is, if you want the Note lineup type of performance, but don’t want to spend up to 70,000+ NGN on a smartphone, then the Infinix Hot 10 is definitely the only Infinix phone that can get you close to that, for only but just 63,400 NGN.

7. Best Infinix Phones 2021 – Infinix Hot 10 Play

  • 6.82 Inches 720p(HD+) LCD display.
  • 13MP rear camera setup.
  • 8MP front-facing camera.
  • Mediatek Helio G25 processor.
  • 2/4GB RAM + 32/64GB storage.
  • Android 10 (Go edition) + XOS 7 Dolphin UI.
  • 6000mAh battery.
  • Price: 55,400 NGN.

Infinix started adding the “Play” branding to its Hot smartphones lineup last year, started with the Infinix Hot 9 Play, and this year we already got a Play version of the Hot 10.

You see, to be honest, I still really can’t find a place or a category rather, where I can place these Play phones.

I mean, they don’t even look or seem anything like their parent smartphones that they’re being named after, except for the fact that they all have this humongous battery (6000mAh), which earns them the name “Play”, meaning that you can play games with them for as long as you want.

But in terms of performance, for instance, the Hot 10 Play of this year doesn’t even come anything close to the original Hot 10 that it takes after. Talk about a Mediatek Helio G25 processor.

But in spite of all that, you’re getting a very large display which will be great for heavy media consumption.

I can’t say that this phone is meant for chronic gamers, because of its mediocre and low-end processor, but it will sure do last you throughout the day, and even till the next day before you’ll begin to think of charging it.

So the take here is; if you want a smartphone with a huge display, a large battery, and you’re not bothered about the performance and camera specs, then the Infinix Hot 10 Play should definitely be among your list of best Infinix phones to buy in 2021.

8. Infinix Hot 9

  • 6.6 Inches 720p(HD+) LCD hole-punch display.
  • 13MP Quad rear camera setup.
  • 8MP front-facing lens.
  • Mediatek MT6761 Helio A25 (12 nm) Processor.
  • 2/3GB RAM + 32GB/64 Internal storage.

Best Infinix phones to buy in 2021

In order to get straight to the point, who is this phone targeted at?

Simple, the Infinix Hot 9 is targeted at fans who just want a taste of Infinix android 10, packaged in a more 2020-like design, a large battery and a large screen, doesn’t mind if the performance is nothing to write home about, and at the same time doesn’t have up to 60,000 – 70,000 NGN to spend on the likes of the Hot 10 and Note 7 series, not to talk of the Note 8.

So at a starting price of 54,900 NGN for the base model with 2 Gigabytes of RAM and 32 Gigabytes of internal storage size, you’re getting android 10 out of the box, one that is coated with Infinix’s own XOS 6 Dolphin UI version on it, a sluggish Mediatek Helio A25 chipset, and a manageable 13MP quad-camera setup.

So, if you’re on a slightly lesser budget, but need a smartphone that runs on the latest version of Android, probably because you’re obsessed with it, a smartphone that lets you watch all your favorite movies for as long as you want on a big screen, and also help you get some light jobs done, then you should definitely go for the Infinix Hot 9.

9. Infinix Hot 10 Lite

  • 6.6 Inches 720p(HD+) LCD hole-punch display.
  • 13MP triple rear camera setup.
  • 8MP front-facing lens.
  • Mediatek MT6761 Helio A25 (12 nm) processor.
  • 2/3GB RAM + 32GB/64 internal storage.
  • Android 10 (Go edition).
  • 5000mAh battery.
  • Price: 49,600 NGN.

Buy Now: Infinix Hot 10 Lite (2GB + 32GB) @ 49,600 NGN, Slot NG.

Just as the name is pronounced “Lite”, the Infinix Hot 10 Lite is a lite-lite-lite version of the vanilla Infinix Hot 10, and when I say “lite-lite-lite“, I mean it feels more to me like one of those phones from the Infinix Smart lineup, than it does for a Hot phone.

So for 49,600 NGN, you’re getting a pretty large 6.6 Inches display, a Mediatek Helio A25 processor (same that was used on the Hot 9), 13MP triple rear camera setup, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage size, with everything being covered with Android 10 Go edition.

So if you’re very tight on budget, and you just need an android phone to put your sim card in and make calls with, be active on social media, watch movies perhaps, and maybe just play a few casual games like Candy Crush and Subway Surfers, then the Infinix Hot 10 Lite will serve you just fine.

Anything more than that will simply just mean going overboard for the phone, and I don’t think it will be able to handle that.

10. Infinix Smart 5

  • 6.6 Inches 720p(HD+) LCD display.
  • 8MP + QVGA sensor.
  • 8MP front-facing camera.
  • Mediatek MT6761D Helio A20 (12 nm) processor.

  • 5000mAh battery.

Best Infinix phones to buy in 2021

The Infinix Smart 5 is currently among the cheapest android 10 powered Infinix mobile devices that you can find in the market right now.

It is an entry-level device, and because of that, it is powered by a low-tier Mediatek Helio A20 processor, comes with 2 Gigabytes of RAM and 32 Gigabytes of internal storage. You’ll get an 8MP camera on both the front and back, a large 6.6 Inches display, with a beefy 5000mAh battery.

Left to me, I will say that the Infinix Smart 5 is targeted at people who don’t have up to 49,000 NGN to spend on the Hot 10 Lite, but still want to cut a slice of its android 10 goodness on the same large display, while doing so with a chunky battery.

So, you’re basically getting the Infinix Hot 10 Lite at a cheaper price with just a few, but negligible compromises, such as the Helio A20 processor, and the 8MP rear camera that comes with it. Aside from that, everything else is basically the same across both smartphones.

So in conclusion, if you want to get a taste of android 10, at a slightly lesser price than the Hot 10 Lite, then you should do well to include the Infinix Smart 5 among your list of best Infinix phones to buy in 2021.
