THE INFINIX HOT 3 UNBOXING
You have the same old Infinix hot series packaging.
Only one new thing, Infinix has returned back the earphones that were missing in their previous releases
Asides that, everything stays the same.
MEET THE NEWEST AND AFFORDABLE CHIC IN THE INFINIX HOT FAMILY.
Say hello to the new 5.5-inch device from Infinix.
(P.S: Allow the image below to load then use your fingers to turn and zoom the image )
I wasn’t so impressed with the looks because it didn’t have that wow effect. However, I loved the fact that the back cover wasn’t plain
I also loved how light the device is.
As opposed to the way you have your charger port & earphone jack below the phone, the Infinix Hot 3 has the charger and earphone jack on top of the phone with nothing significant below, save the mic.
WHAT IS INSIDE?
When you open the plastic cover, you will immediately see the 3000mAh battery space.
You also have your dual micro SIM card and SD card slots.
MUCH ADO ABOUT THE SELFIE CAMERA
I know a lot of people thought that the new device from Infinix will pack a lot of Selfie power as advertised, but going by the specs, I am afraid not. The Hot 3 has a 2MP front camera with soft flash placed in front of the device.
And an 8MP back-facing camera with flash in the same position as the Boom J8.
NOOO… NOT THE BACK!
Unlike the Boom J8, the Infinix speaker is placed at the back and we know what usually happens with this placement.
Just like the Boom J8, you have your power and volume buttons on the right-hand side of the device
You also have the capacitive buttons.
Like I pointed earlier, not so much wowness, but this is definitely an upgrade from the Hot 2.
However, are the changes enough to make you consider it given the price tag of N26,500? You need to see the full review before making that decision, so stay glued.
