Have You Ever Used the Inbuilt PHX Browser on Your Infinix or Tecno Phones?

If you own an Infinix or Tecno phone, then you’d have come across PHX browser, also known as Phoenix browser. It’s the default browser app built by Transsion and checking the Google Play Store shows that the app currently has over 5 million downloads.

I’d tested it out when it started shipping with Tecno phones, but I wanted another opinion, and the second impression didn’t change my initial thoughts about the browser. As far as features go, you have the ability to sync your bookmarks and settings from Chrome. You also get the ‘no-image feature’ to block images from loading, so you can save data.

Other features like night time and ad blocker all make the browser what it is, but there were a couple of little things that got me:

 

The first is the constant notifications!!

Phoenix browser sends random notifications that can be quite annoying, and even though this can be turned off in the settings, it should never have been enabled by default. Then there is the fact that the browser doesn’t support split screen, plus I haven’t found a way of changing the position of the toolbar!

I have other things I noticed, but the point of this post isn’t to show you the faults or features, but to see if there are people that actively use PHX browser, and if yes? Why?

    Yes , I used it for 2days. Lots of notifications and some ads we’re served on the regular.
    It wasn’t a really smooth browser.
    I currently use chrome and Edge.
