|O+ Xfinit Review, Infinite Definite|
Around December of 2015, O+ USA announced their first ever smartphone to boast a massive 3GB of RAM, that device is called the O+ Xfinit.
The O+ Xfinitis a 5-inch Android Lollipop dual SIM device that offers "Xtraordinary Xperience" in terms of mobile browsing and connectivity through its ultra fast 4G LTE.
On the inside, it is powered by a 1GHz quad core 64-bit MediaTek processor bundled with a very generous 3GB of RAM and a huge 32GB of internal storage. Not only that, the retail package also comes with a free 32GB Sandisk micro SD card, giving the user a total of 64GB of storage upon purchase.
O+ Xfinit Unboxing and Hands-on
Like most, if not all O+ packaging, the Xfinit retail box comes with more than just the basics, aside from the unit itself, battery, charger, USB cable, headset, warranty card and user manual, it also includes a free screen protector and a 32GB micro SD card.
The unit looks very classy with a metallic frame combined with non-glossy bronze back cover and a full glass-laminated front. Sadly, there is no notification light and the capacitive keys do not have backlight. In addition, the main camera lens is protruding, making it the first contact point when you place the phone on its back. To know more about its physical appearance and other aspects pertaining to hardware, please watch our video unboxing and hands-on above.
The phone has a 5-inch screen with IPS technology for better viewing angles and HD resolution for a crisp and vibrant display. In real-life usage, the actual display output is pleasing to the eye, especially when Mira Vision is activated, sunlight legibility is good and has enough brightness. However, we are a bit surprised to know that it only supports 2-point touch.
The electronic sensors embedded on the phone include an accelerometer for auto rotate function, proximity for auto screen off during a call and ambient light for adaptive brightness.

Powering the O+ Xfinit from the inside is a 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P quad core processor clocked at 1GHz each. Although, its frequency is 300MHz lower than most devices that we reviewed before, their scores are significantly on the same level. In Antutu 5.6 it scored 20828, Antutu 6.1.2 is 25018, PC Mark at 2534, Quadrant is 9370, NenaMark2 is 46.4 fps and 2019, 857, 1195 in Vellamo Browser, Metal and Multicore respectively.
It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and has the same look and feel as well as similar level of customization with other O+ devices. It also comes with O+ Innovations such as Air Shuffle, Doodle Control and Users to name a few.
The Camera and Video interface use the same good old Android stock UI, a simple and very easy interface that requires very little learning curve.
The O+ Xfinit has an 8MP main camera, it can shoot photos with the good color-depth and color-accuracy with the right amount of details and less noise, auto-focus is fast and accurate even at close range. However, there are times that exposure and dynamic-range calculations are not consistent, to put that in perspective, one subject taken at the same place and position at two different intervals may result to different outputs. Nonetheless, overall image quality is good and more than enough for social media use.
