Design and Display

Showing off a cool looking body, the Infinix Hot 5 cannot be said to disappoint in terms of looks at this price. It is neither too bulky nor too thick for a device in this range. You will be able to get it in a variety of colours, including gold.

Dubbed a ‘mobile cinema,’ the Infinix Hot 5 sports a large 5.5-inch IPS display. The display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. While this will not deliver extraordinary colours, it should offer enjoyable, wide screen viewing experience.

Camera and Storage

You will find an 8 megapixel sensor with autofocus on the rear of the Infinix Hot 5. On the front is a 5 megapixel snapper for selfies. This combo should suffice for users, except those who are photography addicts. For storage, there is 16 GB of space. A microSD card slot lets you expand storage by up to 128 GB.

Performance and OS

You can expect performance that is slightly better than what an average budget smartphone offers these days from this one. The Infinix Hot 5 comes equipped with a quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3 GHz.

What looks likely to give it an extra boost is the provision of 2 GB of RAM. Infinix Hot 5 boots version 2.2 of its maker’s XOS software, which runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Other Specs and Features

The key selling point of the Infinix Hot 5 still remains the battery. It packs a colossal 4000 mAh unit under the hood. You can expect about 4 hours of talk time from 5-minute charge with fast charge technology support.

The rear mounted fingerprint scanner adds to the appeal of the Infinix Hot 5. For connectivity, there are features such as USB OTG, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with hotspot. But it doesn’t look like you’ll be getting 4G support here like in other more expensive Infinix Phones.

However like in the Hot4, it is likely that a Pro version of the Infinix Hot 5 could be offered in future. As you would expect, there are two SIM card slots on it.
