  1. If there is a brand more useless than infinix, that’s either Tecno or itel. Those are ironically owned by the same company, they have poor management, hardly any updates and the worst performance in any smartphone. What is most annoying is that, the redmi note seven which is 4gb ram and costs $200 is better than that stupid infinix s4 which claims it has 6gb ram
