We finally got our hands on with the latest flagship smartphone of the Cloudfone, the Next Infinity Quattro. We teased this a few months ago during our last visit to Cloudfone’s visit, but due to restrictions, we weren’t able to give you full details.
Check out our full unboxing video below. We pitted its looks to some of the products from international brands like the OPPO F5 Youth, OnePlus 5T and Huawei Nova 2i. If you have troubles loading the video below, check out this YouTube link.
In terms of build quality, I find Quattro quite furnished and with an appeal very close to international brands like Huawei and even Samsung. From the get-go, you wouldn’t really think that the device you’re looking at is from a local company.
Quattro is a slab of metal and glass. Consequentially, this build makes it a little heavier than our other phones with similar specs and features. It weighs 187 grams, which is tad heavier than the Huawei Nova 2i, which only weights 163 using our handy-dandy weighing scale.
Its sleep/wake and volume buttons are located at its right side, while the SIM tray can be found at its left. The phone slightly deviated from the trend in the USB department as it uses micro USB rather than Type C.
One of Quattro’s hero features is its whopping 6-inch HD+ IPS display with 18:9 screen ratio. Screen is vibrant, and the contrast level is amazing. Texts appear sharp, and the colors are vivid enough to appreciate visual content on the phone.
There is one issue that I’d like to point out though despite having Corning Gorilla Glass 3: the screen is prone to hairline scratches. This is probably the reason why Cloudfone also included a screen protector inside the box. Unfortunately, I was not able to install mine before I used it.
On paper, Quattro is a best for a mid range smartphone. It has everything to make users play their favorite games or use their productivity applications. Performance is impressive, albeit having performance hiccups occasionally.
We will definitely give you guys a full report once we’re done with all our benchmarks and tests.

While still not conclusive, we have ample reason to believe that Quattro’s camera performance is top-notch. Unedited photos are color accurate. Auto mode does not show proper contrast at the onset, but adjusting its exposure level will help you hit the sweet contrast spot.
Shooting in portrait mode – with special emphasis on producing bokeh – is still a hit and miss, but it’s the best we’ve seen from a local brand. One thing’s for sure, it’s a serious competitor of its international competitors like Huawei Nova 2i and OPPO F5 in respect to taking photos.
Inasmuch as we want to tell more about the Infinity Quattro, we believe that 2 days aren’t enough to test this. Give us a few more days to enjoy this over the weekends.
