The Infinix Note 7 series was a ground-breaking release for Infinix last year. The sudden step-up of the brand in improving hardware performance was somewhat unexpected. While the Infinix Note 7 was a tremendous success for the brand, Infinix Note Lite is the striped-down version of the Note 7.

Infinix Note 7 Lite packs some exciting features at its price range. Some of the highlights here are its 64GB/128GB ROM  + 4GB RAM, 5000mAh high-capacity battery, side-mounted fingerprint, 48MP Ultra HD camera, and many more. Moreover, this device runs on XOS 6 based on Android 10. Continue reading the contents below to learn more about the Infinix Note 7 Lite. Before that, let's take a look at the specifications first.

DESIGN AND BUILD

There are some similarities and differences in the design of the Infinix Note 7 Lite and the main Infinix Note 7. The first thing you would notice here is the change in the rear camera design of the Infinix Note 7 Lite. It comes with a rectangular shaped camera module housing the 48MP Quad camera and Quad-Led flashes. The remaining of the rear cover is left clean with only an Infinix branding below the cover. Another thing we still appreciate here is the placement of its fingerprint sensor. It's placed right on the power key, which makes it easier and faster to unlock your phone.

The display of the Note 7 Lite is just 6.6 inches, making it more compact than the Note 7. It still has an Infinity-O display housing the single 8MP selfie camera. With its 20:9 aspect ratio, 90.5% screen-to-body ratio, and HD+ resolution, it makes perfect for an immersive viewing experience.

PERFORMANCE & STORAGE

The Infinix Note 7 Lite is powered by a MediaTek Octa-Core processor with a clock speed of 2GHz. It performs well on daily usage. And thanks to the 4GB of RAM, this device handles multitasking well without frequently killing apps in the background.

Infinix is feeling generous here with its 64GB/128GB internal storage (Vary between markets). The 128GB storage option is the max you would get on the regular Infinix Note 7, Zero 8, Note 8, and many more. This makes it comfortable to store most of your files like music, videos, documents, apps and some games. It doesn't stop there, it also has a dedicated SD-card slot, which supports up to 256GB external storage.

CAMERA

From shooting still photos, to portrait pictures, and macro pictures, Infinix Note 7 Lite got you covered. It has a 48MP Quad rear camera and an improved 8MP selfie camera. The main standpoint of having a quad-camera system on a budget or mid-range device is to enable shoot from more perspective without breaking your bank. If you're looking for a device that takes good pictures, stunning Portraits and Bokeh, and some usable close-up shots at an affordable price, you've got to try the Infinix Note 7 Lite.

The primary lens here is the 48MP Ultra HD camera. Other rear cameras include a 2MP macro camera, 2MP depth sensor, and an AI camera for videography improvement. The primary 48MP camera is scaled down to shoot at 12MP by default. The reason is to save storage space since most people don't need those large photos. If you need to shoot in 48MP mode, you need to enable it first in the camera interface.

Infinix has added some real-time scene detection algorithm here. The camera uses AI to detect what you're currently shooting and improve the output image. For example, if you're taking the picture of plants, the algorithm will automatically recognize it and add some kinds of improvements to make it look better. Same applies for the other 18 scene detection categories.

BATTERY

One thing about Infinix phones is that the pack large batteries in them. Even for the Infinix Hot 9 Play to have a 6000mAh battery was unexpected. The Infinix Note 7 Lite also packs a 5000mAh high-capacity battery, which is enough to take you up to two days of normal usage. Infinix keeps getting better at the charging speed of their phones, and this one comes with an improved 2A Supercharge 2.0.

SOFTWARE

One of the best you can get on an Infinix phone is the XOS custom skin. The software running on this device is XOS 6.0 based on Android 10. This was the first iteration of XOS based on Android 10, and it's packed with lots of features. Most native Android 10 features are present. You would get features like Dark Mode, Gesture navigations, Wi-Fi Share, Live Transcribe, and many more.

One Android 10 features most manufacturers don't implement on their Android phones is Live Transcribe, and it's available as a bonus on the Note 7 Lite. Right from its name, Live Transcribe helps you with effective communication. When activated, it provides live transcription/subtitles of anything playing on your phone or near you.

There are numerous XOS features present on this phone, but permit us to talk about "Gesture Call Picker." This feature lets you answer or reject incoming calls hands-free - without touching the screen. It's pretty simple, just draw a "V" gesture in the air to pick a call or hover your palm over the screen to reject it. It can be enabled from Settings > Micro Intelligence > Answer calls with a gesture.
