Infinix Race Eagle hands-on

Infinix Race Eagle pack

I spent some time with the Infinix Race Eagle yesterday. It was my first time of playing with an Infinix smartphone. The Race Eagle is a looker with its glossy white shell. It has a 5-inch 480×854 pixel display, runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, is 3.5G compliant and packs an 8 megapixel camera. The phone is powered by a 1.0Ghz Dual Core and 512 MB of RAM. There is 4GB of internal storage and a removable card slot.

I love the feel of the Race Eagle in my hand. 5 inches is a sweet spot for me, and it doesn’t feel too small or too large. The display has a nice feel to it. It does wash out a bit in direct sunlight.

The Race Eagle is a dual SIM smartphone. Both slots are regular SIM size. The microSD card is located between the two SIM slots, and Infinix had an 8GB card included out of the box. The battery is rated at 2,000 mAh.

In the pack are three (yes, 3) back covers – a standard white one, one with a cover to protect the display, and a third in a very lovely Zebra pattern. You know which I fell in love with – the Zebra version. Ladies will love it!

In the brief use that I had time for, I experienced no surprises. Set up of a Google account and services went smooth. Downloading and installing 3rd party apps from Play Store worked as it should. BBM was up and running in no time.

Other accessories in the pack were a microUSB cable, audio ear piece, and charging adapter.

The Infinix Race Eagle costs about N29,000 in the market. While this is not a full review and I no longer have it with me, I really do think that it is a good upper budget smartphone.
