  • USB Cables
  • In Ear Monitors with mic
  • User Manual
  • Warranty Card

The accessories included in the package includes a 1 A wall adapter, USB cables, that good sounding free IEM with mic, user manual and warranty card. It's the usual package we get from MyPhone. Just like with other handsets from other brands, I would have like it better if they included a free case here for additional protection.

Check out that very slim design!
Design-wise, the new Infinity 2 Lite is a very thin sexy looking smartphone that reminds me of a certain firefly model. I like the general design of it, it looks elegant and gone are the iPhone inspired look from the first gen of Infinity. (They removed the glass at the back that breaks easily when dropped hard) Compared with the Rio 2, both devices has that matte like back cover then Infinity 2 Lite is thinner at 7.5 mm against 8.6 mm. Overall, I must say that this is clearly an improvement over the old Infinity Lite aesthetic-wise.

Matte like texture at the back
As usual, the Infinity 2 Lite is a very well made handset from MyPhone. Even if it's thin, it doesn't feel like it will suffer from bendgate as the metal alloy frame used here is made out of very good materials. The screen used here is also protected by Gorilla Glass 3 to give us peace of mind here over light accidental drops and scratches. However, the Infinity 2 Lite also has that slightly protruding camera ala Rio 2 so better be careful with it to avoid scratches on your lens.

Antutu score of Infinity 2 Lite
I loved what I'm seeing with new Infinity 2 Lite! It's very well made, has that very attractive slim elegant looking design and midrange worthy internals. The camera also looks good from my first use. From what I'm experiencing right now, this is clearly an improvement over the first gen of Infinity Lite. The interface is very much like Rio 2 like that doesn't have the app drawer anymore. However, it's not yet on Android 5.0 Lollipop like the Rio 2, the quick launch option is replaced by the clever motion and still don't have LTE connectivity. Hopefully, there will be a Lollipop update soon to add more value to this device. 

I'll be spending more time with this unit and I'll report everything to you guys in the part 2 of this review. Watch out for it!
