Infinix Hot 8 Review of Features
Design and Framework
Another bulky product is what is expected as it comes with 6.23 inches screen size. But there is nothing to worry about as it features just a normal flat screen area similar to that of hot 7. On the upper end of the screen is its dual Selfie camera sitting on either side of the earpiece. The backside which features plastic mainly as its material also comes with a fingerprint scanner positioned where you can easily fixe your index finger for quick unlock. There is equally a dual-lens carriage camera affixed on the left upper area close to the edge. Completing the physical features is its volume and power key on the right-hand side.
Compare With: Infinix Note 6
This is one area Infinix brand is really known for and Hot 8 isn’t an exception. 4100mAh of battery made by Li-On is what potential users should expect. This allows you enough time with the smartphone. To further boost the power system, it has a fast-charging feature made to power back the in-built battery.
About the biggest changes we are seeing as compared to Hot 7. Hot 8 features dual camera on both ends with a whopping 16MP + 2MP on lenses of both sides. Expect no difference when taking photos with the rear camera or front. To further boost superb image delivery, some features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus are there to tweak on if needed. Image resolution stands at 4616 x 3464 pixel, so expect photos that look as real as they can be.
RAM and Processor
Infinix Hot 8 chipset is manufactured by MediaTek. The 64Bit device also comes with 2.39GHz processor which combines with 4GB RAM to deliver an amazing processing speed. Multitasking is made easy as users can switch in between their favourite apps and games and still experience the same processing speed. However, the 2.39GHz processor is expected to burst up to 2.6GHz with 4G connectivity.
64GB of memory space is what users are expected to work with. However, the memory space can be expanded up to 256GB with SD card. An all-round great performance is almost certain with such a large memory space.
Display and Screen Size
Comes with a waterdrop notch and non-bezel screen as usual which allows more viewing angles. The screen display which is powered by IPS LCD also has capacitive touchscreen managing the touch function. Image and colour distribution is also great with 720 x 1500 display pixel.
Hot 7 vs Hot 8 Comparison
The truth is both devices fall in the midrange category with some bigger specs in Hot 8. The price is just about 10% difference between the two and one can easily choose Hot 8 over its predecessor if you are driven by good cameras. The additional 100mAh of battery in 8 may also prove decisive.
