2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very similar to Infinix Hot 7 Pro - a simple, good looking design, with a 6.19-inch HD+ display with a “traditional” wide notch at the front
  • The metal back panel gives this phone a premium look and feel
  • The rounded edges and sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner at the back is quick, accurate, and well-positioned
  • Face recognition is quick too, though it only works well in well-lit environments
  • Good 6.19-inch IPS LCD screen, with good color reproduction
  • Infinix's custom XOS UI is decent as far Android UIs go, an adds a lot of additional functionality (Game Boost, Whatsapp mode, Freezer, AIBox, Smart panel)
  • Decent overall performance with a Helio P25 (similar to Snapdragon 632) at the core - day-to-day apps, and casual games run smoothly
  • Pretty decent camera performance, for the price bracket, with a dual 13MP+2MP setup, both front and rear
  • Low-light shots are relatively good too, and the phone manages to keep noise under control
  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will typically get 1.5 days of use
  • The Hot 7 is a pretty decent phone overall, and a decent option to consider in this price bracket, along with the Redmis and Realmes of the world

  • Decent 6.19-inch IPS LCD screen, with good color reproduction
  • Infinix's custom XOS UI is decent and fairly intuitive as far Android UIs go, an adds a lot of additional functionality (Game Boost, Whatsapp mode, Freezer, AIBox, Smart panel)
  • An ample 6GB of RAM means that apps tend to stay in memory longer once loaded, so multi-tasking is a bit smoother

  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will typically get 1.5 days of use
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The volume buttons are positioned a little too high, needing a stretch to reach
  • Unfortunately, it also packs a lot of bloatware that tends to give spammy notifications (although thankfully this can be removed)
  • The volume buttons are positioned a little too high, needing a stretch to reach

  • Overall performance is only average here though, with a relatively weak Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625) - day-to-day performance is fine of course, but this is definitely not the fastest phone of this price range, and you will notice that in things like app load times
  • The phone also tends to get a bit warm when gaming
  • Overall image quality from both the rear and front dual cameras is only average though
  • Shots taken during the day tend to be overexposed
  • Portraits taken using the bokeh mode show decent edge detection, but it isn't very consistent
  • Video recording is average too - with no stabilisation
  • While the Infinix Hot 7 Pro has been marketed as the cheapest phone with 6GB of RAM, it's overall performance is only average on account of the relatively weak processor - you will find both better performance, and better overall value in competing phones like Realme 3, Redmi Note 7, and the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2
