The Infinix Note 5 Stylus, which is the same as the Infinix Note 5
Pro is the latest Infinix Smartphone available on the market as at the
time of writing this post and Im sure you know that it has been tagged
as “#BeyondIntelligent”.  What can this smartphone do?  Why is it special?
Find out in today’s review!
Not so fast– Check out the New Infinix Hot 6x specs

While both the Note 5 and
the Note 5 Pro (Stylus) comes with very similar spec sheet, the stylus
pen which is better referred to as X-pen is only included on the Infinix
Note 5 Pro as it was the case in the last year’s variants; Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro
Note 5 Pro saw a major improvement in terms of design. It now
hides its x-pen inside the body, something like what we see on Samsung
note smartphones. It
also has that clicking mechanism that helps pop out the x-pen. The Xpen
is also smart. There have been improveents in terms of battery life,
processor speed, memory and lots more. More
details on that below, let’s quickly look at the key features of this
device before diving into more details.

Infinix Note 5 Pro


below, I have just roughly listed specs that might excite you that this
phone has in no particular order. After the listing, I’d move into an
in-depth review:

  • 6.0-inch, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 2160 x 1080 pixels (402 ppi)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo (Android One)
  • Octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 CPU with 4GB RAM
  • 64GB built-in storage expandable to 256GB with a memory card
  • 16MP rear camera and a 16MP front camera
  • 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint sensor (rear).
  • The stylus is well hidden on the smartphone click and it comes out
  • 4000 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery
  • Mediatek Helio P23 Octa-Core Processor
  • Infinity display screen 
  • 4G LTE



Okay, I would not
deceive you by telling you that this device is the best blah blah blah.
Infinix Note 5 has Pros (positive sides) and Cons (disadvantages, or
negative sides). It’s funny how many online articles on this only talk
about its advantages lol. Is it a perfect smartphone?


1. The X-Pen : Innovative, Amazing or Nice?

to the Stylus pen (X-pen) thingy, what Infinix did on the Note 5 Pro is
quite commendable as the Xpen can be used for some cool stuffs, like to
write a memo even in the lockscreen, take a picture and to draw. When
the screen is unlocked, you can access all memo, nites and drawings done
with the Xpen with the Xnote app that came with the phone.
pen is very accurate and drawing with it gives a high level precise

When the screen is off, pulling out the X-Pen launches an off-screen
writing pad that you can scribble some notes, you can also use the
stylus to navigate through the phone and you also get some stylus
shortcuts to complement its existence.


the Infinix Note 5 Stylus is the Pro version of the Infinix Note 5, the
camera quality is somewhat better than that os its precdecessors as the
Note 5 Pro has a pretty good portrait mode for the back camera, and a
Bokeh mode for the front-facing camera, amongst other really impressive
effects. At the rear, we can see the 16MP Back camera shooter that has
aperture and 1.25 μm pixel size. Of course, the camera is AI-powered and
comes with a dual-LED flash. While the 16MP selfie camera has f/2.0
aperture as well and supports Face ID.


The Note 5 Stylus derives its features from the Mediatek Helio P23
MT6763T chip which has a 16nm process technology, so power efficiency
should be great. There’s an octa-core processor that clocks at the
normal speed of 2.0GHz, while the ARM Mali-G71 MP2 graphics card handles
Unlike the Note 5, you now get a larger 4GB RAM space
for multitasking heavy apps. There’s also a massive 64GB storage space
with an option to upgrade up to 128GB using a memory card. It runs on
Android 8.1 Oreo with no user interface (Android One). The Note 5 Stylus derives its features from the Mediatek Helio P23

The Infinix Note 5 stylus comes in colour variants such as Bordeaux Red,
Charcoal Blue, Champagne Gold and perusing the device from physical
build to its features, it’s clear to see the ruthless work ethic of
Infinix Mobility to give its users smartphone that exude premium class,
style and Intelligence. Just like the Note 5, the Note 5 Stylus ships with the trending 18:9
aspect ratio screen. The full view screen which Infinix calls the
Infinity Display should make the details on the screen clear enough for
viewers. It also has super minimal top and bottom bezels.

Infinix Note 5 Pro still packs the same beautiful body design with a
rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual camera setup as the regular
It is wrapped in a well-polished plastic material that you can hardly
notice because it looks so classic and beautiful with a smooth panel
and rounded curved edges.


Just as I stated earlier, there are few things I don’t like about this phone, and some of you would agree with these valid points:
1. It is quite expensive, as the note 5 is around N64000 while the Note 5 Pro is N84000
2. It does not retain a similar design to that of the Note 5
3. It is still using Mediatek (MTK), a rather fading-out processor. I expected a Qualcom Snapdragon processor
4. This is another infinix smartphone without IR Blaster (no infinix phone has this till now)
5. Infinix Note 5 Stylus arrives with outdated USB ports, ancient Bluetooth
version 4.2, but still offers 4G LTE for fast browsing, speed download
and many more. Overall, the Infinix Note 5 Stylus is quite amazing and
fits for budgeted phone markets.

I took some pictures of this particular phone, and they are:


Price of Infinix Note 5 Stylus

Infinix Mobility are asking a
little more money for Note 5 Stylus Pro, with few advanced
specifications and features. The pricing has been slated to N82,000 – N86,000 and it is avaikable in major phone retail stores.
