Design & Display : 

The Infinix S2 Pro has a 5.2 inch IPS 1280 x 720 pixel display which is exactly the same as its predecessor ,  Infinix Hot S. The display is covered by a 2.5D glass which provides a slight curvature at the edge of the glass display, also known as a contoured edge (Read more here).

 

 

In terms of design , the S2 pro looks like a premium , high-end device thanks to its well polished metallic body and contoured edges. The unibody design means that the back cover cannot be removed and the 3000mAh battery cannot be replaced if damaged.

The fingerprint scanner is located at the back of the device , below the LED flash and above the Infinix imprint.

Hardware & Operating System :

In terms of Software , the Infinix S2 pro runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system which is disappointing as we all expected Android 7.0 Nougat. Nevertheless , there is high possiblity Android 7.0 update will be made available later on. Time will tell.

In terms of hardware the S2 pro sports an Octa-core MediaTek MT6753 Processor which has a speed of 1.3Ghz. The graphics processing is handled by a Mali-T720MP GPU , while the 3GB RAM takes care of mulittasking. The S2 has 32GB internal storage and an external storage slot that allows SD card up to 128GB.

Camera : What is Wefie ?

This is where things get interesting.

The Infinix S2 Pro has dual front facing cameras ( two cameras ) with 13 MP & 8 MP resolution. However , the Infinix S2 Pro has a different setup unlike other dual camera smartphones. The two cameras perform totally different functions and don’t work hand in hand.

The 13MP camera is responsible for taking “normal selfies” , while the 8MP camera has a wider lens which helps you take wefies (Wide selfies) at an ultra-wide selfie angle of 135 degrees. The picture below gives better understanding (Thanks to Dickson Otieno of Tech-ish).

 

 

Both cameras will  likely produce photos with different quality (due to difference in mega pixels) , however , the 8MP camera is best used when taking selfies with people at different positions.

  • I use Glo network and Tecno Camon CX supports their 4G LTE frequency (Band 28 – 700MHz) while Infinix S2 Pro does not.

    That seals the deal for me!

    I think the camera of the Camon will be better too, but I envy the RAM & memory of the S2 Pro.

  • Infinix S2 Pro is really what it is called. Infinix Company did a great job during the manufacturing of this device and because of that, am personally giving Kudos to them. Also without forgetting our able Publishers in Specspricenigeria, the Top leading mobile Specs in Nigeria, you guys are doing a great job too in letting the public know about the trend in the Mobile market.

    To be frank, the whole features of this phone ranging from the Ultra-Wide Selfie Angle to the battery capacity, all suits my need when it comes to its usage. But my little complain about the device is that, the phone is bigger than the 3000mAh embedded to it. If the can step up in battery capacity just like Gionee Company and other mobile manufacturing Companies, then it would be much better.

  • Believe it or not, I love this device.

    In my thoughts, this are the exact features of a perfect phone.

    Over the years, I’ve come to see infinix as a company that are generous when it comes to features and delivering of what the people actually want. They did it back then with infinix hot and here they are doing it again with the S2.

    The only turnoff for me is the battery being 3000mah instead of 4000+man. But that’s completely manageable.

    I just wonder what’s holding them from dropping the device here in Nigeria. Cos I learnt they already launched it in Jumia Kenya. While other countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt remain on the loop.
