Review: A Day With The Infinix Hot 8

The device shares the same design language with the first iteration of the Hot series – the Infinix Hot x507 – which was the first ever Infinix Hot device to be introduced by the company. he phone boasts of 6.6-inch display with high definition resolution that is sharp and bright when browsing through photos and watching videos.

The Hot 8 builds on the success of its predecessor almost entirely without going back on anything while still remaining progressive.

Many of my friends who saw it were wowed by the design of the phone.

There’s so much one can do with a 6.6-inch high definition display that packs more with a 1080 x 1280 pixels resolution for a more brilliant view. One can only limit themselves in this.

I find it to be good as you can actually feel the large device in your pocket and most of all feel that you have something in your hand.

With the large size, the Hot 8’s design is specific and carefully positioned so as to avoid strain in trying to find some of the key features.

For those who use their phones regularly, you are guaranteed with a two-day battery life. For those who don’t necessarily use their phones regularly, you are sure to go for three days on just but a single charge.

Once the phone gets to low battery, you can activate the ultra power mode to buy some more hours.

For instance, I accumulated two hours and 45 minutes talking on the phone while it was at eight per cent. This feature is good for those who travel a lot as you are sure to be available even while still on the road and on low battery.

For the camera lovers, the phone comes with a 13-megapixel back camera and front camera of 8 megapixels. Considering it is a low budget phone, the specs are actually quite good.

It has 32GB onboard storage, a twin-sim and the micro-sd card slots.

The top of the front side of the device has a proximity sensor, the front-facing camera and earpiece in that order.

The outer speakers are good for both calls and music or rather for watching videos on the large display screen.

Its available on Jumia for Sh10,999.
