Infinix InBook X2 Review with Pros and Cons
Infinix has finally launched its latest series of Inbook X2 series lineups. Inbook X2 certainly promises major upgrades over the X1 series and that’s what we will cover in this review.Powerful enough to do light editing to light enough to be able to carry it anywhere, it does seem very lucrative. With that, a low price tag is certainly the way to go now.
The Infinix Inbook X2 is made up of a full-metal body and comes with up to four color options.It has a brushed metallic finish on the lid and the chassis as well. Even though there isn’t any flex on the lid, there is some sponginess on the keyboard deck. Though it felt very sturdy and well-built for that matter and one need not worry about the build quality. It comes at around 1.24 Kg with a screen size of about 14-inches. It’s also very thin, just shy of 15mm at 14.8mm in height.
Ports,I/O and Connectivity
Even though the Infinix Inbook X2 comes in a very thin and compact form, it doesn’t compromise the ports. It boasts USB-C x 1 (Data, Charging, and DisplayPort), USB-C x 1 (Data), USB 3.0 × 2, HDMI 1.4 × 1, SD card slot x 1, 3.5 mm Headset and Microphone Jack x 1. Even though it’s not much it will get the work done just for anyone. Though there is no thunderbolt 4 ports on this laptop considering its price point. A 45 Watts type-C charger gets the work done efficiently, rather than a bulkier one which is very traditional and difficult to carry around.
Keyboard– The laptop comes with a chicklet-style keyboard, which covers the entire length of the chassis. The keys are pretty big and there’s enough travel between the keys as well. keyboard also comes with a backlit as well.
Trackpad– Infinix Inbook X2 comes with a pretty large trackpad as well. The trackpad doesn’t come with separate buttons but rather a single touchpad that acts as a button depending on where you press it. It supports multitouch as well. It was very precise though not like the higher-end Windows laptops or Macbooks.
Webcam– The webcam of Infinix Inbook X2 comes with dual led lights, which is rather unique considering its rivals. Infinix says it’s for better video and image quality. Though we think it will certainly help in a much low light situation as well.
Infinix Inbook X2 comes with a 14-inch 1920×1080 full-HD IPS display with a 16:9 display aspect ratio. It has a peak brightness of about 300 nits and Infinix claims a color gamut of 100% sRGB.Images and videos are crispier on the 14-inch full-HD screen and it would be great for graphic designers or creators who are just starting their careers.
A respectable peak brightness of 300 nits for a budget laptop is pretty good as well.
The laptop comes packed with the latest 10 generations 10nm Intel chips for better and faster performance. Currently, Infinix offers Intel® Core™ i3-1005G1, Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1, and Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 with Inbook X2 lineups. Even though it’s a low-powered version rather than the much more powerful H series. It’s powerful enough to sail through any task on a given day. It also dissipates less heat, as a matter of which the laptop remains cool most of the time.
We will certainly not recommend gaming in one of these machines as these will severely thermal throttle and the chassis might get very hot. Also, it’s not a gaming laptop, so it might put damage the motherboard as well. Though some lightweight games like Among Us might just work fine.
It comes with inbuilt Intel Iris Plus graphics for some lightweight professional work as well.
Infinix offers up to 512 GB of M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD of storage with the Inbook X2 and up to 16 GB of RAM as well. We will certainly encourage buyers to buy the higher spec versions for futureproof purposes but it will vary depending on one’s budget.
The speakers on Infinix Inbook X2 are pretty great considering its price point as well. It sports a two-layer stereo design with DTS audio for a truly great sound experience. The volume is pretty decent as well and gets pretty loud at max volume.
Infinix Inbook X2 comes with a 50 Wh lithium-ion battery pack, which Infinix claims give around 11 hrs of battery life on Web browsing. Though according to us, it gives around 6 hours of battery life on light to medium usage. But on gaming, it barely gives even an hour of battery life.
Unfortunately, the laptop is not upgradable at all. So one must decide carefully before buying one of these machines.
