Join MissTechy In Unboxing The Infinix Hot 2

This week, the Infinix Hot 2 was the most talked about device thanks to Google’s Android One Initiative. I got my personal unit yesterday and couldn’t wait to do an unboxing, a device review, and YASS!  a comparison with Tecno’s Camon C8.
However, for today, join me in unboxing the Infinix Hot 2!


The box packaging is nicely designed – nothing special.  As you can see in the images below, there is an Android one tag by the side.

I should bring something to your notice,  there is a condition on the package that states that the Infinix Hot 2 will only receive updates from Google for up to 2 years, after 2 years, Google will stop pushing OTA updates to the Phone.

Inside the box sits the 5-inch Infinix hot 2!

The Infinix Hot 2 comes with a USB wall charger, Booklets, Battery, a white Earphone and USB Cable.

I got the Champagne Gold color but, bear in mind that in Nigeria, Infinix Hot 2 is available in  3 color variants, White, Gold, and Black.

Looking at the design, you should notice that the device bears similar resemblance to the Infinix Zero series, However, the Infinix Hot 2 isn’t as slim as the Infinix Zero and it comes with a removable battery and back cover.

As said in the previous post, the Infinix Hot 2 comes with a glass protection on the front and back. Also, when you open the back cover, you should see the dual Micro-sim slot and a MicroSD card slot.

The first time you power up the device, you might need to wait for about 3 minutes or less for it to load up the OS, after that, you would be greeted with the android welcome screen

As seen in the spec sheet, the device comes with an Android 5.1 loaded with Google’s UI, a 16GB ROM (you only have 11.78 available) and a 2GB RAM.
That is all I can take for this unboxing, ensure you stay glued for an in-depth review and a comparison with the Camon C8.

What do you all think? Are you satisfied with receiving updates from Google for only two years?

Don’t forget that Jumia is your trusted bet if you are looking to get the Infinix Hot 2 as they are direct partners.

    Hello Tobi,
    Nice work you are doing here, please when next you are unboxing, kindly take your pics during day light or in a clear environment… that pics is too dark… even your hand self too black. God bless you and keep up the good work

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Hello Yemi, thanks for the observation, however, I took the pictures during the daytime, the dark view is due to the fact that I edited the pictures to focus more on the device but, I have taken down your points thanks. You rock!

      1. Yemi says:

    Wow. Nice phone!
    I should be getting this since it’s within “reach” 🙂

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Which color would you be getting?

      1. Kay says:

        Black of course.
        Others are cool tho, but I just love how the body color blends with the screen when not displaying.

        1. Tobi Ayeni says:

          Lol, I guessed as much

  3. Samm says:

    1. Samm says:

      Come on man! MTK ain’t that bad..
      In fact I’m a big fan

    2. Edi Dominic says:

      You can’t dwell in the past bro, Companies do improve, MTK is getting better and may even get better than the Qualcommm/Snapdragon Samsung and others are using.
      I think even HTC One m9 came with an MTK chipset. Is about capabilities 😀

  9. Emma says:

    I heard that only the gold color version comes with 2gb ram, is this true?

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Hello Emma, I doubt that. I thought so too but I think there are 2 variants (1GB and 2GB) of each colors. The only difference is the price.

  10. Chidexta says:
