The Android One seal is probably the biggest selling point for the Hot 2. It ensures that the phone gets the latest version of Android as soon as it becomes available as Google will be responsible for delivering updates and security patches, which is also a plus with the increased frequency of revealed Android vulnerability.
This means that the Infinix Hot 2 is probably the only phone in this current lineup with a likely hope for Android 6 (Marshmallow) sometime down the line.
Infinix Hot 2 runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop) on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB or 2GB of RAM. It sports an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. The 5-inch display offers HD resolution, but seems a bit dull, which I have noticed is gentle to the eyes.
