Infinix Buzz X260 hands-on

Infinix Buzz

The Infinix Buzz is a budget Android 4.0 (Ice cream Sandwich) smartphone with a 2.6-inch (480 x 320 pixel) touchscreen display and hardware QWERTY keyboard. Under the hood, the Infinix Buzz is powered by a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. There’s a 5 megapixel camera, 512 MB Internal Memory and a microSD slot in the mix too. Lastly, it is powered by a 1450 mAh battery. All standard Android ICS goodies are in there, including WiFi hotspot.

I had a brief hands-on with a unit yesterday and found that it feels like a very sturdy and well built device. At 11.9mm thickness, it is also a bit chunky. The casing is plastic. The unit that I played with was black, but I think that I would prefer the white version. The Buzz is wider than the average QWERTY smartphone, and this allows for a landscape format display. The hardware keyboard feels good in the hands.

In case you did not know, the Infinix brand of mobile phones is from Sagem’s lineage.

The Infinix Buzz X260 is available in the market here in Nigeria for around N16,500.00, which sounds like an absolutely fantastic deal for anyone looking for a hardware QWERTY Android smartphone at an affordable price.

      Jujukemist,

      Tecno is a partner in the Infinix brand, alongside MobiWire (formerly Sagem) and CarlWire. .

    I know mister Mo,its just that we also know that the partnership is superficial- at the care centre level and factory production.The business, Philosophy and Design Spirit is totally different.Already, Tecno is geting jittery of this Infinix guys,it may subsume their brand name

    Oh, I’m considering buying this phone so I can use it as a wifi hotspot. Please can I get any info on its networking capabilities? Nothing seems to be showing up on google about the networking specs. Thanks Mr. Mo.

    this is a classic Chinese ploy to make themselves look more European . Pay some European guys to front the company but at the heart of it the brand is still Chinese and the user experience is still Chinese. When a company is OWNED by Chinese regardless of how the consumer offering is – the decisions are Chinese- they have ZERO liking for Africa- just another way to make money from the continent which then buys them luxury houses etc – in China . None of those Chinese directors will be buying plots in Victoria Island and none of them will invest in the long term benefit for Nigeria. Nigerians WAKE UP !

      you think its about the know how? have u considered the capital and production cost especially in a country with poor power supply or inaccessible roads in your country? my brother if you dont ve these basic amenities you wont even consider producing because it will be more expensive than buying. so i advice u to buy those Chinese phones if you dont have the money to buy better high end phones…

    The Infinix Buzz looks good, better than its rival TECNO Q1. But it has a weak, terribly weak touch screen that acts up and the camera has no real auto focus. What’s worse, the torch is nothing other than a led sensor. Internal storage of 128MB is an apology.
    Pros, the phone looks good and has extra navi buttons. I should have bought the Q1.

    My greatest disappointment in 2014 is buying an infinix buzz x260 phone: the actual INTERNAL MEMORY is 128MB instead of the 512MB as specified on the phone pack. Even when I bought it from a reputable store (Slot, Abuja office) I have no hope of getting this issue resolved as they said they did not manufactured phones and Nigeria being what we are, I am on my own.
