2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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
  • The volume buttons are positioned a little too high, needing a stretch to reach

Display

  • Good 6.19-inch IPS LCD screen, with good color reproduction

Software

  • 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)
  • Unfortunately, it also packs a lot of bloatware that tends to give spammy notifications (although thankfully this can be removed)

Performance

  • Decent overall performance with a Helio P25 (similar to Snapdragon 632) at the core - day-to-day apps, and casual games run smoothly

Camera

  • 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

Battery

  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will typically get 1.5 days of use

Verdict

  • 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
