Display Of Infinix S2:
Infinix S2 is 5.2 inches’ device with the supportive resolutions of 720 x 1280 pixels while the density per pixel (dpi) is 320. DPI is used for the clear visibility of icons and texts and we haven’t observed any kind of blurriness’ in icons and its texts.
It should have been much better if Infinix provides us 1080p display resolution screen further the multi touch has also scored only 5-points in Infinix S2. We have seen that mid-range devices of Xiaomi, Samsung has scored full 10-points in multi-touch so this is weak point of Infinix S2.
The graphic card in Infinix S2 is Mali-T720 which is mostly used for graphics and games. It has worked smoothly in every field and we haven’t observed any delays in it.
Design of Infinix S2:
Infinix S2 is slim and light weight device and as I have told you it is 5.2 inches’ devices with the dimensions of 147.3 x 71.5 x 8.2 mm and weight is only 147 grams. Although it is carried with 3000 mAh satisfactory battery plus it is very easy to handle handset.
Let’s start with the front body of Infinix S2 which has dual front camera lens at its top side. With it, ear piece and front camera flash light is also marked at the top side. At down side, we are having function keys and a shiny silver bezel layer has covered the whole screen from every corner of it.
Now move towards its edges in which audio jack of 3.5 mm is present on the top side while one edge has volume keys and the other edge has SIM jacket and power button. Speakers and microUSB port are present on the down side.
Back side of Infinix S2 has column wise arrangement. On the top, we have back camera lens while below it LED flash light is present and in the last we are having finger print scanner. Infinix logo is also present in the center of the screen while rest of the body is totally simple.
Memory of Infinix S2:
Memory section of Infinix S2 has satisfactory selection because it has 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM. Internal memory should be of at least 32GB. These days only applications take too much place and this handset is specially for camera lovers.
Camera lovers take too many photos and for photos they need space. Users can increase its internal memory up to 64GB with the access of memory card.
2GB RAM is a good choice for mid-range device and we haven’t observed any kind of delays and lags while testing the device.

Battery of Infinix S2:
Infinix S2 is packed with non-removable li-ion battery of 3000 mAh. The battery is satisfactory for mid-range device but we cannot say a perfect one because Infinix has already given us 3500 mAh or 4000 mAh battery in mid-range devices.
We have 2A charger with it to charge the Infinix S2 and it will completely charge it in almost 2 hours. It has media tek chip set and octa-core processor so both features will help the infinix S2 in battery saving.
The most prominent feature of Infinix S2 is its camera section because it has dual front camera lens and back camera has 13MP lens. Both cameras are enabled with LED flash light and it can satisfy camera lovers easily. Back camera can record video in full 1080p quality. Let’s discuss both cameras in detail to check what more features infinix s2 has.

The main settings option are HDR, guidelines, Level, Delay capture, smile shot, touch capture and many other settings. We can reduce the image size up to standard VGA size if we are lacking of memory space. Interface is very simple and easy to use because it has flash light option, modes option and camera switch option at the top side. Down side has gallery option, click button or video button.
We have tested the back camera of Infinix S2, results are very good. Image quality and dynamic range is well in daylight. Colors are very well and clarity of image can be observed by zoom in the picture. Let’s check them in Infinix S2 Review.
Front Camera of Infinix S2:
Infinix S2 is using dual camera lens for its front camera. These days dual-camera smart phones use the second lens for wide angle aperture, optical zoom and sometimes for bokeh effects. These both lensed together can give us very different and unique results and we know apple has also given dual back camera lens smart phone.
In infinix s2 we are having 8MP lens for front camera and it can record videos in HD. It has LED flash light also which can help us a lot in night session. We can take selfie with it from different angles. One works as simple selfie camera and other gives us wide aperture angel which is latest feature and infinix is providing us.
