Infinix has officially “settled” all selfie lovers with the latest Infinix S2 pro. AKA the wefie (pronounced we-fee) master. But before we go on, what is a wefie? Let’s have a quick fun fact.
A wefie is simply the pluralization of a selfie. Get it?
Infinix S2 Pro – Just Another Android Device?
The Infinix S2 pro makes use of a new innovation. Dual front cameras! But not only does it have dual front cameras, the cameras DON’T work together. The first is the normal selfie camera, but the second one has a wider lens with a 135° focus, helping you take wider photos.
This sort of camera would definitely be perfect for WEfies. It would capture a wider group of people in one self-taken shot; you’ll also have a great viewing angle for when it’s just you. This is in one word, delightful!
What else makes the S2 pro worth your money?
It is beautiful, for one thing. Fully metal and sleek (though it’s a look-alike of its predecessor). It supports a USB OTG and it runs on 4G, which would be a crime if it didn’t. One low side is its OS. A lot of people (well, a plus me) expected the S2 to run on Android 7.0 (Nougat), but that’s not much of a problem. However there is most definitely going to be an upgrade so just sit tight.
However, another reason I love this phone is that people with small hands (like me) have no problem handling it. It has a 5.2 inch display. Though as much as I hate to admit, if you like huge phones, you won’t like this.
There’s a downside that aches my soul with the S2 pro, though. It makes use of a hybrid sim. In other words, it mandates that you chose either a sim card and a memory card or a dual sim card (feel free to wipe your tears).
Anyway, as is expected, the Infinix s2 comes with a fingerprint scanner. It also has 2 and 3GB variants and comes in pink, blue, black… but the grey variant got me smiling.
