missing the essentials
Infiinix’s latest offering is a surprising entry into the budget smartphone market. It’s confusing to see the company remove a fingerprint scanner from a budget device, even when the Infinix Smart 6 has the feature. The device also comes with the same screen resolution, chipset and battery. And the last one sells for Rs 6,999.
The Infinix Smart 6 HD also comes with just 32GB of storage. Many budget smartphone users can benefit from more storage. There are many users who still prefer to store their photos and music offline. By adding Rs 200 more, they get 64GB of storage with the Smart 6.
