The Infinix Note 3: Unboxing the Big Friendly Giant That Is the Note 3

Have you ever looked at something and wondered how it would fit…
… Your hands?
Well, I wondered about the same thing when I saw the behemoth Note 3. How in tech’s name am I supposed to carry this big thing in my small hand? Before I jump the gun, how about a meet and greet? Say hi to the Note 3 in a box.

This time, I am a bit impressed with the colors and design elements, It makes it stand out, especially when you compare it with other phone packages (Yes, I am a package collector, bite me ?)

Let’s have a brief look at the specs, shall we?


Moving to the accessories, the Note 3 comes with an accessory different from what we have come to expect from the Infinix Brand. You still have the regular ones:
..And a screen protector.

Not a significant addition, but an addition nonetheless.
With that said, meet the 6-inch Infinix Note 3.Infinix Note 3 Unboxing26
Like I said earlier, the Note 3 looked like it wouldn’t fit my hands, I mean, look at my hand and then look at the Note 3.

However, holding the device wasn’t so bad after all.

It also looked slim when placed on the table.

When paired with the Note 2, I’d still pick the Note 3!

Just like the other notes, you might have trouble fitting it into your pocket, hence the reason it’s called the Note!

Design-wise, you can spot one similarity between the Note 2 and 3:

… Which is the presence of the on-screen buttons

When it comes to the weight, we have the Note 3 weighing more than the Note 2 thanks to its metallic build.

While the Note 3 came in at 201g

However, its design elements are way better than the Note 2’s

You have the volume buttons and power buttons on the right, along with the MicroSD card slot

There is the dual SIM card slot placed on the left.

On top, you have the 3.5mm earphone jack.

Beneath the phone is rather fancy, there are the speaker grills, the USB port, and the mic.

The back view houses your regular 13MP back-facing camera and dual flash lens.

… And the Fingerprint sensor placed beneath the flash lens and above the Infinix lettering.

You need not be told that it has a non-removable back cover, do you?
Moving forward, the next thing I had to check was… The NOTIFICATION SENSOR! After searching for over 10 minutes, I finally found it!
And boy was I glad even if it is conspicuously placed beside the front flash.

You also have the 5MP camera, flash lens and proximity sensor:

Lastly, the metal frame is another noteworthy design element on the Note 3.

Based on a first impression, did the Note 3’s design impress me?


The Note 3 doesn’t come with a major design overhaul, but I still like what I see.

The only issue is the fact that there are two variants of the Note 3, the 3G and the 4G variants. Not sure how much the 4G would cost.
Now, over to you, what do you think?

    The 4G version has 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. It costs N60,000. And it looks slimmer in these pictures than when I held it in my hands at the event. It’s a device worth buying, seriously

    1. MIKE says:

      Hi Ojo .S.
      Is the 4G variant available in nigeria as I didn’t see it on jumia.

      1. Ojo Stephen says:

        Nope it’s not available yet but it’s gonna be released later this month.

    2. samuel says:

      Whr did u see the 4G variant?

  2. OROSUN says:

    Nice one From infinix ..infinix note 3 is a true upgrade to the infinix note series.

  3. Tee Johnz says:

    both variants should have had 4g at least judging with d cost… just saying

  5. Adedotun says:

    Can’t wait to get mine..
    Am in love with infinix mobile right from inception

  6. prime says:

    Dunno how I feel about trusting infinix again… My note 2 pissed me off sometimes. I’ll keep an eye on this tho. By far the most interesting of their recent releases.
    BTW it looks a lot like Gionee m5 plus.

  7. Adeniji Micheal says:

    Great Review… Wanna see the full review in a bit.. Saw the 3g ram/ 4G variant on YouTube.. The 4G variant is not in the Nigerian market yet…..

  8. aiykay says:

    Actually went to the launch….and I was impressed….
    You can also take quick and easy selfies with the finger print sensor behind….
    Plus with 2k on the device can give you data of 7gb on mtn….
    I ordered one for a client and I wanted one for myself…but this economy shaaa…

  9. STELCH says:

    MT nice one, can’t wait to get the 4G variant.. Your Blog is different from the rest. You’ve really won me over.. #FirsfTimeCommenting..

  13. Iykekelvins says:

    I always enjoy your review misstechy. I like the fact that infinix added a screen protector tho. The phone is beautiful, big friendly giant indeed, Lol

  14. GODWIN says:

    The Infinix Note 3 is cool just that the absence of 4G LTE in the version launched in Nigeria is the deal breaker. All the same, the Benchmark Result is just okay for the device.

  15. Zita says:

    Nice Unboxing as always (can’t take that from you). The note 3 is really appealing .

  16. Ojo Stephen says:

    Nope it’s not available yet but it’s gonna be released later this month.

  17. Fred says:

    I hope posting videos on Snapchat won’t be showing that multicolored variant ?

  18. Anonymous says:

    Someone sold 4G variant to me but yet to un-box it, is the 4G variant in Nigeria?

  27. Temitope Eniola says:

    Tobi Ayeni, I must say you are good writer. I will like to be like you when I grow up. Funny right? That’s on a lighter mood. But Kudos for the detailed points. I ended up reading your hands-on explanation of the device because I asked Google if the phone has a stylus. I would be glad if you can answer that. Thanks

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Hi Temitope, thanks for the compliment ? really made my day. To your question, no it doesn’t come with a stylus.

  28. Adeola says:

    Hi. Thanks for the review. The only thing I’m worried about in this phone is the camera. I hate the camera on Note 2,both rear and front. At least not as good as that of Gionee M5 (The reason I would choose Gionee M5 over this Note 3 is the camera). Could you please comment on the camera quality?
    Btw,first time on your blog and I think I’m gonna be visiting regularly

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Yay Adeola, a warm welcome :). This is an unboxing article. To read about the camera as well as other tests, Kindly click on this link.

      1. Adeola says:

        Got the phone since a week now and it’s absolutely amazing. The cameras are very impressive. Fast charge, long lasting battery, fast and smooth fingerprint sensor. It was worth it. Thanks again. Your review convinced me

        1. Avicky says:

          Misstechy, followed you from nairaland. First time here. You are quite humorous with your funny gifs used to butress your points.
          I’m a camera freak. And I don’t know if I should go for camon c9 or this note 3. But I would like you to do a review of the note 3 pro too.
          @ Adeola.. Can you give an honest user review? Especially the camera. Thanks in anticipation.
