Phone Review: Infinix S2 Pro X522 Specs & Price

Infinix S2 Pro (a.k.a the Infinix X522) is a successor to the Infinix Hot S. Infinix seems to be dropping the Hot branding from the S range more like they did with the NOTE range a couple of years ago. The most outstanding feature of the Infinix S2 Pro is a dual-front camera, which should make it a toast of selfie and wefie lovers.
