User Reviews and Opinions


  1. My first flagship phone in history and boy am i so proud of being one of the owners of this marvellous phone

      1. For my budget yeah its a flagship. Tell me a better brand new $150 phone on the market. Its no secret that basically its a low mid range phone but for $150, its value for money especially given those specs

      2. I won infinity 9 at Chibuku Big promotion I would like to thank Delta for such a generosity.Iam enjoying and it’s really amazing

    1. Hakuna Flagship yakadaro usanyepere vanhu iwe. It’s a good phone and affordable yes but FLAGSHIP NO. Most midrange phones from other brands are way better than this

  2. It’s a good looking phone but 3GB of ram feels a little. Plus there is no ultra-wide camera, connot shoot 4k video, no Ip rating of water and dust resistance. Built quality doesn’t feel premium. However 5000mAh battery along with a 12nm processor makes the phone a bit ahead!!

  3. Aw! The release date coincided with my birthday! I will make it a point to get one for myself. I love Gtel.

  4. Gtel Infinity 9 seems to be a good phone.
    I don’t have one, but I need one. Anyone to tell me about his experience with Infinity 9 please.
    Is it good or I should go for Infinity 8.

  5. I have been using gtel phone since 2013 , its a good brand . I loved everything about it kutochinja nekusvitwa nayo but everything will still be intact. I love gtel phones

  6. Mine is having a problem on data netwk. Im using netone. But heey im struggling to recieve sms

  7. You guys Gtel phones are Fine but accessories you cant find it zvekudaro you can’t even a pouch of your choice .can you do something about it

  8. Its a good phone but the portrait mode ain’t so fancy like zvinotoonekwa kuti potrait yephone yakadhaiwa at least if one could edit the blur effect its was gonna be perfect
