Honestly, I wasn’t so surprised in regards the fact that an android phone can be used in charging another phone but i didn’t know the infinix hot note can actually do that.

Good question! But then, are you also aware that the infinix hot note phone boasts of fast charging ability? I mean, in about 20 mins of charge, your hot note can charge to a capacity of which you can use for over a day.
