Review: Why InnJoo Fire is a Cheat

Posted by John Onwuegbu | Friday, May 22, 2015 |

InnJoo (quite an odd name), a Chinese OEM headquartered in Dubai, which just celebrated its one-year-anniversary has since risen to be the most innovative smartphone brand on Jumia and in Nigeria as a whole. The company on May 21 officially launched its flagship device InnJoo Fire into the Nigerian market, following InnJoo One’s success.

InnJoo Fire is a budget Android smartphone with premium specs and features, while offering exceptional value for its affordable price, it blows all other budget-phones out of the water.

It features 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, 5.0 Inch display with a resolution of 960x540 and comes in four color variants; classic black, milk white, fashion gold and natural bamboo.

Other specs include Android 4.4 Kitkat OS, Dual SIM standby, 5MP Primary Camera and 5MP secondary (selfie), and a whopping 2,500mAh Lithium battery.

It is very rare to find a very high specs smartphone at a very affordable price, as the InnJoo Fire is priced a little below $100 and that's a cheat!
