Infinix Note 2 X600 VS Hot Note X551

Infinix launched Note 2 X600, probably the last smartphone the firm will released in 2015. The device is here to take on the position of Hot Note X551 with various improvements, new sleek design and an upgraded Android OS version. It "may" as well completely replace it to top the food chain. We wonder why Infinix decided to remove "Hot" from the naming, leaving just "Note". Maybe to make it easier to differentiate both or perhaps to make the name shorter we guess. So, for those still using Hot Note X551, you might want to upgrade. But does it deserve it? We mean, dumping your phone or selling it out just to get this. Well, that's why we want to clarify things here.

What has Note 2 X600 got that is missing in Hot Note X551? Are they similar in one way or the other? What's the difference? Below, we'll be comparing Note 2 X600 and Hot Note X551 key specifications.

Display:

Note 2 X600 -> 6.0-inch IPS display, HD (1280x720 pixels) resolution, 245ppi pixel density
Hot Note X551 -> 5.5-inch IPS display, HD (1280x720 pixels) resolution, 268ppi pixel density

Note: Note 2 X600 would have greatly impressed us, but the resolution is kind of disappointing for such a large display. The 6-inch put it in Phablet category, and that means more space to run task and clearer details of what is shown on screen. But this doesn't changed the clarity, sharpness, vivid of the display when compares with X551. Infact, you'll hardly notice any difference besides the screen size. If you prefer compact stick with X551, but if you want something a bit larger, go for X600.

Processor And RAM:

Note 2 X600 -> 64-bit 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor, Mali-T720 GPU, 1.5GB/2GB RAM
Hot Note X551 -> 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor, Mali 450 GPU, 1GB/2GB RAM

Note: Hot Note X551 seems to be topping the line, but that is if you didn't notice the difference in their processor. The Note 2 X600 packs a modern 64-bit chipset with improved Graphics while the chipset in X551 is a bit outdated. To be realistic, you'll experience smoother performance on X600 than on X551. Also, there is an increase in RAM capacity which is a good thing when it comes to multitasking and gaming, though both offers two versions with different RAM capacity, 1.5GB/2GB for X600 and 1GB/2GB for X551.

Camera:

Note 2 X600 -> 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash; 2-megapixel front camera
Hot Note X551 -> 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash; 2-megapixel front camera

Note: The back camera has been upgraded from 8MP to 13MP which is good. More scenes to capture, larger resolution of image output, and probably better picture quaility. We don't know why Infinix still sticks with 2MP for front camera, selfie fans aren't going to like this.

Storage:

Note 2 X600 -> 16GB built-in storage, expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card
Hot Note X551 -> 16GB built-in storage, expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card

Note: Nothing changes here. Both are expandable and has enough storage to host multimedia files and data.

Connectivity:

Note 2 X600 -> Dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi, 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, GPS, FM radio, and Micro-USB.
Hot Note X551 -> Dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi, 3G HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, GPS, FM radio, and Micro-USB.

Note: Only 2GB RAM version of Note 2 X600 support 4G LTE. The 1.5GB RAM version has 3G only, which makes it in league with Hot Note. So, no big deal.

Battery:

Note 2 X600 -> 4,040mAh battery
Hot Note X551 -> 4,000mAh battery

Note: We can't consider the 40mAh difference as an upgrade. Just a change of digit. However, looking at their display properties and processor, the Note 2 is likely to have same battery life as Hot Note. When it comes to a good battery life, you can count on both. We are talking about roughly 3 days of talk time. Notably, both support fast charging.

Operating System:

Note 2 X600 -> Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Hot Note X551 -> Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Note: Another reason you might want to consider X600 is the latest Android operating system version it runs. Which means more features, customization, improved security, and easier access of use.


These all sounds sweet enough to make you take a leap, but there's still one major factor that worth taking a look at which is price. The Hot Note X551 costs #23,000 NGN when it was released in February, and it is still being sold at roughly #24,000 NGN. But the new Infinix Note 2 X600 comes with a starting price of #27,300 NGN, and that is for 1.5GB RAM 3G version. The 2GB RAM 4G LTE version costs #31,600 NGN.

If you're willing to make the jump, it probably worth it. Though sacrificing additional #4,300 NGN just to get 500MB RAM and 4G LTE is not on our list, but may be on yours. It is time to upgrade, what do you think?
