Infinix S4 Cons.
Every device have its ups and downs in terms of features, and Infinix S4 is one of them, I find the custom skin of Infinix XOS very unstable and it is not very smooth in daily life performance, Also, this user interfaces shows of tons of free advertisement and bloatware too. Which could be a hurdle for users don’t like to see ads again and again. This is the only cons I had noticed in my first impression. ANyways, we would try to give you a full detailed review very soon.
