Initial Impressions: looks like a combination of the Flare 3 and the Omega Icon

When we first saw the Infinix Pure XL, it definitely looked liked the lovechild of the Flare 3 and the Omega Icon. The Infinix Pure XL has the same rounded back and corners of the Flare 3, and the metallic looking accents on the side like the Omega Icon.

The sides and corners of the Infinix Pure XL are rounded to facilitate a more comfortable grip along with a matte finish. The device feels quite hefty, which made us believe the battery was already inside the device when we got it, but that’s not the case, of course.

The volume rocker is on the left side, while the power button is on the right. Both the volume rocker and power button are slightly raised from the side, which makes them easier to press when you’re not looking. Both the 3.5mm jack and USB port are located on the top of the device.

We’re no strangers to the current hardware configuration on the Infinix Pure XL, as we’ve seen it before in Cherry Mobile’s other octa-core devices like the Pulse. So we weren’t surprised when the Infinix Pure XL managed to pull in a rather respectable benchmarks in both AnTuTu and Geekbench.
