The new Infinix Note 6 is a tour de force in juggernaut handset design. Not only is it big and bold, but this imposing device also has an incredibly sharp 6.0-inch AMOLED display, and battery life to go the distance. More importantly, Note 6 features a sleeker design than its predecessor, the Note 5, an AI-powered X-Pen, plus the same superb camera you’ll find on the TECNO Phantom 9.
The Infinix Note 6 is the 6th iteration of the Infinix Note series by Infinix Mobility. The Infinix Note 6 is the successor to the Infinix Note 5 and Infinix Note 5 Stylus. Infinix Note 6 is the predecessor of the Infinix Note 7 and Note 7 Lite that were launched some months back. In this article, I’ll be doing a review of the Infinix Note 6 in 2020 telling you if it is still worth buying even when it already has a successor.

It’s all about the X Pen
It’s unlikely that even the most avid Infinix Note devotees use their X Pens often, at least those who don’t a lot of drawing on their phone. Infinix hopes the Note 6 will convert more users into being X Pen faithful.
The company said it revamped the X Pen experience on Note 6 with AI powers. While companies like Samsung have already mastered the art of the Stylus, I feel like the X-Pen has made large strides towards becoming a worthy contender. I’ve actually been tempted to use it. Here’s how it works.
Removing the X-Pen from its sheath launches the X-Pen menu.
When you pull the S Pen out of its sheath, a little fan-shaped graphic called the Air Command appears. If you have used the S Pen on the Galaxy Note series, there is nothing new the X-Pen will present. Apart from the alert that pops up to remind you to return the X-Pen to its sheath, we were not able to verify the AI powers that the company claims.
You can take screenshots, take notes and write on screenshots easily using the X-Pen. Also, you can activate it from any screen or app by holding the pen close to the display and pressing the X Pen’s button. A lack of Air commands may affect uptake by advanced users but ordinary people will find the X-Pen a more compelling tool than ever before.
