As for its design, as you can see in these shots, Cherry Mobile Infinix Pure XL features a rounded design identity and comes replete with a matte and rather rubbery back cover and chrome accent (with brushed metal look) running down its sides and 'extending' over the power button and the volume keys. While not as head-turning as a high-gloss case, the back plate nonetheless attracts less fingerprints and is not too prone to getting scratched.

Off hand, I'm quite impressed with the build quality of the phone (it's rock solid), its bright and vivid display, and the very smooth touch response and screen transitions that the device delivers. I have a feeling that this will be another 2014 best-seller for the brand - just like Flare 3 and Alpha Luxe - and its success could well continue until Q1 2015. Thumbs up, Cherry Mobile!
