The InnJoo Fire 2 is the second device in the Fire series that sports some impressive changes in the design department that I’d love to share. So join me as we unbox this device together.
INNJOO FIRE 2 UNBOXING: SPECS RUNDOWN
I’d let the emoji in the image convey my emotions.
MEET THE BEAUTIFUL ROSEY
When you open the box, you will immediately see the metal-cased Fire 2 in whatever color variant you chose. I am not trying to hype or anything, but the Fire 2’s design and color (Rose gold variant) made me smile. Why? It is a beautiful phone!!!!
While many might frown at the size on the Fire 2, those who like their phones portable will find the 5.0 HD Display on the Fire 2 to be perfect.
Removing the first compartment reveals the regular phone accessories in a black casing
The accessories include a USB Cable, wall adapter, SIM tray ejector pin and your earphones.
The earphone has a mouthpiece, for those who pay attention to things like this.
THE FIRE 2 IN ALL ITS VIEWS AND GLORY
Check out the 3d view of the InnJoo Fire 2, don’t forget to zoom and rotate the view
Now let’s get to the real deal.
You have the 5MP front-facing camera on the left side of the device, your proximity sensor on the right and the capacitive buttons below.
For a 5.o inch device, the Fire 2 doesn’t feel heavy in the hand (P.S.: It weights about 130.5g).
There is this fine deep gold metal encasing around the phone that further adds to its beauty.
Instead of making the color on the back plain, InnJoo created two color shades. You have the darker color shade on top of the device and the normal color shade in the middle and the bottom parts of the device.
You also have a 13MP back-facing camera placed on the top left corner of the device which is a first for InnJoo (I might be wrong). There is a slightly conspicuous InnJoo lettering, and the speaker grills placed below the phone.
Update: The back cover isn’t removable
On the left side sits the volume and the power buttons
While the left side houses your Micro SD card and SIM card slots.
Some of you might not like this one, but InnJoo stuck with their Hybrid SIM Card slots
This allows you to either use one Micro SIM-card and MicroSD card or 1 Micro SIM and Nano SIM.
PLACING THE CARDS
For those who might be confused, here is how to go about placing your SIM cards in the InnJoo Fire 2
TOP AND BOTTOM VIEWS
Finally, on the front is the 3.5mm Earphone jack port, while the bottom houses the charging port and a mic.
The first impression got me like:
After seeing what the specs have to offer
This is just an unboxing and shouldn’t be confused with the review. But based on first impressions, I like what I see, the colors on the Fire 2 is popping and its design aesthetics are beautiful. But once the looks begin to fade, you can’t help but notice how the Fire 2 fares in the specs department, which is not so impressive, especially after comparing it with other devices in the same price bracket….But how will it fare in real-life usage? You would have to find out in the full review.
What do you think?
UPDATE: THE PRICE IS CURRENTLY AT N30,000 ON JUMIA (Blame it on the dollar, they say).
