One of the main reasons to buy an Android ONE device is that you’re assured of updates. Here’s a budget device from 2018 now receiving the latest version of Android in 2020. Which is something many phone companies cannot boast of at this price point, or even at flagship prices.

I really loved the Infinix NOTE 5. My review was titled the Best NOTE to date. That’s because it was just perfect from the Full HD screen, the processor used at that time, the RAM and storage options then, and the absolutely huge 4500mAh battery.

With Android 10, it is still a device to consider in 2020. That’s if you can get it at a good price. For example if you can pick it up betweek KES. 10,000 and KES. 13,000, go for it. Though remember this is probably the last time it receives such a major update. It has already moved from Android 8 Oreo, to Android 9 Pie, and now to Android 10. That’s 2 generations of Android. From now on you will only expect Security Patches for another year.

To update your Infinix NOTE 5 to Android 10, go to Settings, then to About Phone, System Update, and download the 1.1GB Update.

If you’re asking yourself why your other Infinix phones aren’t getting Android 10, remember they are not Android ONE phones.
