The Infinix Hot S Review: A Case Of “Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover” Plus Ikeja, Lagos As Seen From Its Lens.

We had our misgivings with the front view of the Hot S given that it bore a similar resemblance to some of Infinix’s devices.  It also felt like Infinix didn’t have enough creative gumption.

Can you name them?

 

But how did the Hot S fare in real-world performance?

P.S. This review is divided into 4 parts to break down the length. (Do let me know if I should stick to this or revert to the former method. Also, do share this after reading)

 

INFINIX HOT S REVIEW:

PART 1 – DISPLAY, XOS, & BOOT TESTS

BOOT TEST

Starting off on a bad note is the boot test, thanks to the animation that comes with the XOS, the Infinix Hot S takes about 61.8 seconds to power on, a lot more than it took the Camon C9.

However, it fared better when powering it off.

Overall, these are the top 3 fastest Mediatek phones when it comes to boot time.

HOW GOOD IS THE DISPLAY?

A 5.2-inch screen might be disappointing to those with big hands, but for those that like em small and portable (Hi, there?), this is perfect.

Its 5.2-inch display (720 x 1280 pixels) with a 320dpi meant that when indoors, you get vibrant colors from a user standpoint. Also, the sunlight visibility is way above average even when the brightness is set at minimum.

Like I implied above, I noticed that the colors appeared a teeny-weeny bit saturated, but it still fared better than the Note 2.


INTRODUCING THE XOS

Recall that the Hot S debuted with the new XOS Chameleon based on Android Marshmallow? Chances are you would end up loving it, at least I did. I particularly loved the fact that the UI is clean, simple and very intuitive. Now, to the things that got me feeling this way??:

1. There is now a new screen record right in the notification panel, this means you won’t have to install a third-party app.

2.  The app drawer’s alphabetical arrangement for those who have so many apps installed. (Some of you might not like this, but I do)
