Infinix Hot Note X551 – Unboxing and First Impressions


Hong Kong based, Infinix Mobility has not been so popular amongst smartphone makers in Pakistan, however the company has brought its mid range smartphone Hot Note in Pakistan. While this smartphone is not available on retail stores in markets, you can buy it online exclusively from as they are the only official re-seller in Pakistan for this smartphone.

This smartphone actually created a hype amongst the consumers socially active specially for its mid-range package for an entry-level price range that is only Rs. 12,900/- which led us also having interest to check this thing ourselves. Well, the timing was so accurate, that we received a review unit from Infinix.

While the phone has already been on its track for reviewing process, we are letting you have a quick look over the unboxing session below along with our very first impressions about the Infinix Hot Note X551, which are quite positive.


The package is sealed with a plastic wrapper which, upon tearing apart, leaves you with a hard box cover up design. When lying down, the top side of the box illustrates the Hot Note handset with front elements. The bottom side of the box prints with the key features as shown above.

Pulling the top cover off the box reveals the device wrapped into a plastic cover which is quite premium quality with blurred transparency. Both, the front and the back side of the device wrapper prints instructions to start with the phone.

Removing the device tray which a simple thin card, a slotted cover and going down in the box shows up the included items with the handset which are quite standard as earphones, micro USB cable and a standalone travel charger. What else is the user guides.


We didn’t like the box finishing in your first visuals but the way, the device was wrapped in to a plastic cover was impressive and seemed to be something premium inside. Then the big device reveals itself as being somewhat premium, indeed – at least for its price tag.

5.5 inch display is quite big as a smartphone, so that’s probably why they call it a Note – “Hot Note”. Handling was pretty good and the feel, no doubt, is premium for such a mid-range device or a smartphone with a much lower in price.
