The Infinix S4 is a budget smartphone that comes with decent features and out of which the cameras deserve to be the main highlight. Other than that, it has average performance, decent looks and a great battery backup.
Talking about the competition in this price range of around 9K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Redmi Y3, Realme 3, Galaxy M20 and Zenfone Max Pro M2. So, the competition in this price range is good.
If compared with the competition, the smartphone is offering features like a triple rear camera with wide-angle sensor and 32MP selfie camera. In other departments like performance, it is way behind the competition and doesn’t perform well. We also didn’t like the XOS present on this smartphone as it comes with too much bloatware.
Overall, We don’t recommend Infinix S4 to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Realme 3.
