Undoubtedly, Infinix Note 8 looks beautiful, bigger and smarter, suitable for those who believe the word “bigger is better” because the phone is really big.

The winner

As some of us already know, the word operating system is abbreviated as OS while the processor also known as Central Processing Unit is abbreviated as CPU. However, both versions of Infinix Note 8 has the same Os and Processor.

The new note 8 smartphones are built on Android 10 OS accompanied by the new Infinix XOS 7.1 designed to add more features, beautify and enhance the performance of the phone. Thanks to MediaTek Helio G80 chipset designed to ensure optimum performance stability for both device.

RAM stands for “Random Access Memory” which is the processing memory the phone needs to handle it daily task seamlessly while ROM stands for Read-Only Memory, a storage memory that allows you to download and install hundreds of apps, games and other media files such as mp3 and videos etc.

However, the new Note 8 comes with 4/6GB RAM and 64/128GB ROM and support up to 2T expandable memory card. With this big memory, you already know the category which this smartphone belongs to, a high-end smartphone that has everything you need.

Note: After some research, I found out that Infinix Note 8 and Note 8i has different memory sizes between 64/128GB storage memory and 4GB/6GB RAM. When buying this phone be sure to check the memory size of the one you are buying.

The Winner

Once again everything remains the same, the only edge Note 8 has over Note 8i is that the storage memory can be extended with 2T memory while Note 8i support 512GB. So there is no much difference between the two devices when it comes to memory size.

Note 8 is the winner with dual 16MP+ 2MP while Note 8i offers single 8MP camera However, both of them are designed to produce brighter and clearer images and videos.

Battery Capacity

Infinix Note 8 is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 5200 mAh battery strong enough to keep you connected for days on standby and more than 12 hours when consistently in use. Obviously, there is nothing different between the Note 8 and Note 8i here. They both come with 5200 mAh battery capacity.

Thanks to the 18W fast charging feature added in both models which helps the phone charge faster. A 5 minutes charge will give you more than 50 minutes of power. What I find interesting is the type-C USB charging port which is far better than the old USB type.
