The Infinix Hot 2 is the first phone of the brand I bought. First time experience, it can be interesting especially for me since I was not well acquainted with Android OS. But the experience has been good on many fronts.
The Infinix Hot 2 runs under Google’s Android One program. I have been using it for close to two weeks now, and to say that I am impressed would be to verily understate. But you equally can’t beat Infinix phone which is retailing at sh8,999 quite the real deal.
The Infinix Hot 2 has a 5.0 inch IPS 720*1280 pixels touch screen.
The screen size and resolution is quite good and is ideal for reading and gaming too. It is made of dragon glass making it anti-scratch and resistant to native damage.
The phone comes with Android Lollipop 5.1. This is the latest and fastest version of Android. It certainly will automatically get new versions when released. All applications which came pre-installed in the phone were Google apps with the exception of the Jumia shopping app.
RAM, Memory and Processor
It comes with 1 GB RAM, 16GB of memory and a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor.
The processor and RAM combine smoothly to ensure that the device runs smoothly without hanging even when you have opened multiple screens. The 16GB memory is enough for apps and files. In case you need additional space, the memory is expandable up to 32GB through a micro SD.
The phone comes with an 8 megapixel back camera and a two megapixel front camera. The back camera is good for daylight shooting and brings out the details in the shots. The 2 megapixel front camera takes decent selfies, not the very best but it gets the job done.
The phone comes with a 2200mAh Li-Ion battery.
The battery life is not all that as it will last you a day with moderate usage quite unlike the Infinix Hot Note. The good news is that in case you start running out of charge the phone has a battery saving feature that can extend your battery life by restricting background data of apps. This helps extend your battery life for about 90 minutes, you just need to set your phone to automatically enable the power saver when the battery runs low.
Build and design
The phone has curved edges which make it fit in your hands nicely. The phone is available in several colors.
Warranty and Support
The phone comes with a 1 year warranty. Support and service is available via Carlcare service centres.
The phone is quite good with a very affordable price point. All in all it is a great phone. Look out for the sales, likely to do very well.
