Infinix Hot 5 : 5 Things You Need To Know


  1. Massive 4000mAh Battery With Fast Charging 

Recently it seems almost every Chinese OEM smartphone comes with 4000mAh Battery which gives you a longer time of use and also longer time of productivity and creativity with your device. It’s good for those who don’t like to charge always or have unreliable power supply.


2. Great Dual Front Sound Speakers

You don’t need to always carry your bluetooth speakers with you anymore the new Infinix Hot 5 is blessed with great dual front sound speakers called “Dirac 3D stereo surrounding” with one at the top below the front facing camera and the other speaker below the screen display. These two speakers provide you with a mind blowing music and movie experience, so you don’t need to turn your phone over whenever you need to listen to music while working with the Infinix Hot 5. Also at the launch it was referred to as “My Mobile Cinema” thanks to the 5.5 inch screen and “Dirac 3D stereo surrounding” speakers all this sweet features at an affordable price.


3.  Sleek Design 

Infinix Hot 4 users will agree with me on this one, your old Infinix Hot 4 used to have this great look but slippery back feeling and design that if you’re not very careful you will have a falling phone with a shattered screen. Well, Infinix has come to fix that issue even without using a cover case for weeks the Infinix Hot 5 has a new design and grips at the back to give you a premium feeling while holding. It also has a totally different front looking design.


4.   Great Camera 

Recently i think Infinix is doing good job with the cameras nowadays even on budget phones, the Infinix Hot 5 is not an exception packing a Front Camera with 5 MP Camera / LED flash to enhance sweet selfie experience at nights, and Back Camera with an 8 MP Camera with LED flash. The Infinix Hot 5  camera takes some dope images at night day and anytime.


5. Two Variants

Even iPhone’s come in many variants nowadays, the Infinix Hot 5 is not excluded in this act of cheerfulness, coming in two variants which include Infinix Hot 5 and Infinix Hot 5 Lite both packing a very similar specifications. Infinix Hot 5 Lite is meant for those who need long lasting battery without fingerprint scanner, 2GB RAM, Dirac 3D stereo surrounding, Front dual camera. This are the only things missing on the Infinix Hot 5 Lite, so consumers are given the choice to spend less but still enjoy a smooth affordable Infinix smartphone.
