Infinix Hot S Review

Another Infinix phone just came to my hub recently and now for the judgment. Here is my Infinix Hot S review.

I had a time which Infinix Note 2 was my main driver so when I handled this one, it was already a familiar territory for me with it's XOS based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. All of the available customization are there including reducing DPI to make the icons smaller which is pretty cool. I had a good time for this one except that it has a big bug that came in. I was not able to get the latest OTA update for some reason even that I went to places with high speed internet



On the connectivity issue, I had no problems on calls, texts, mobile data, WiFi, Bluetooth and the best part the GPS which is my main issue in Infinix Note 2 (IN2) in terms of accuracy. My ever-beloved LTE only mobile data continues on this one



Setting up the fingerprint reader works good on this one and once you already set it up, you only need to stick that finger on that to awake the phone. You can put up to 5 fingers for your security. Out of 16 GB ROM, you will get at around 10.02 GB for app storage




On benchmarks, it scored on Antutu as expected on a Mediatek MT6753 octa-core processor at almost 35,000. It has 7 working sensors including gyro and has 5 point multi touch.




Gaming was a-ok on Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 but I experienced a very little frameskip on this device

On battery life, I ran my video batttery rundown test and it went down to 12 hours and 20 minutes out of it's 3,000 mAh battery. I became a heavy user in the past few months as it survived for me in 19 hours of average use in 6 hours of screen on time which is a-ok.


The camera has a good enough for outside environment as well for indoor usage which is a bit better I think compared to IN2. The front flash helped me a lot in terms of selfies. On low light, I maximized the pro mode which I noticed that most of the time, it will be out of focus after a number of shots which you need to tap it again.





For the price of Php 6,990, it has a good compact size for it's features like front flash, the XOS UI itself, good enough camera, good fingerprint reader and huge battery capacity out of it's size. If there is one issue that you might face is a bit less power on this compared to other MT6753-powered phones that I encountered in terms of gaming. I will gonna give a 3.75 out of 5 for the Infinix Hot S
