With a soft, rounded look, a pronounced absense of corners, a rubberized back that curves into your hand, a metal side frame for sturdiness, no flexing anywhere, and just the right amount of heft, the Cherry Mobile Infinix Pure is a joy to have (and to look at) and to hold. Something this Pure should be unboxed slowly.
Of course, as lovely to the feel that rubberized backside is, I have a feeling it will be a magnet for finger prints, cat hairs, and catsup stains. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Out of the box: the Infinix Pure itself, charger, charging cable, earphones, and related literature. The specs are on the phone’s display sticker and on the box’s back side, and also, here…

Above: dual SIM and microSD card trays, and yeah, non-removable battery, but I’m not complaining. If you’ve seen the specs and the price – factor in how great it looks and feels – then you’ll agree that the Infinix Pure is too good to be a secondary phone. It can stand as a good main smartphone if you’re not into heavy gaming and videos. It’s something you can depend on for everyday usage and not be ashamed to be seen with.
No offense to Cherry Mobile, but that default launcher and icon pack has to go. I’m eager to run Nova Launcher and my favorite calm-looking icon set on this baby.
Above, top to bottom: power button, volume rocker, and slit for removing the back cover. Notice how each of these features look “infused” into the Infinix Pure’s physique. Wonderful!
No one really believes me when I tell them how rounded and minimalist the Inifix Pure is – hence this blown up shot of the rear camera. Look at how the absence of nuisance highlights the camera. Anyway, I’m sure it’s just me geeking out on a no-fuss design on a local phone.
We’re going to be taking the Infinix Pure for a spin to checkout the benchmarks and performance and cameras and battery life.
So stay tuned for our full review.
