The Infinix Hot 4 Unboxing: 13 Things to Note About the Hot 4.

I am sure Infinix Mobile has gotten some of you feeling like:
2nd gif
However, If you are still interested… Then you are in the right place.
I can't wait to see how this turns out
Judging from the specs, the Infinix Hot 4 is a slight upgrade to the Hot 3

When placed side by side, you would notice some not-so-major design changes.

Of course, I’d gladly take you through them and also point out some major things you will notice about the Infinix Hot 4


1. THE COLOR ON THE PACKAGE IS A FIRST FROM INFINIX

This is the first device in the Hot series to come in a bright yellow package.

Moving forward, because I know a lot of you are not here for the package. You get to see the 5.5 inch Infinix Hot 4.

2. ACCESSORIES ARE STILL THE SAME OLD

Further digging shows the same accessories we have come to expect from Chinese OEMs.

The earphones are quite long, though.

3. THE INFINIX HOT 4 IS QUITE BULKY.

The first time I held the Hot 4, I felt like this dude in the image below:

?, just kidding, but one thing you will immediately notice is that the Infinix Hot 4 weighs a lot more than the Hot 3.

Those that like their phone feeling solid would be elated. However, if you like your device very light, I am sorry, this is not for you. (You should probably read about the Hot S)
 

4. IT IS NOT SLIM

Another interesting thing to note is that the Hot 4 is not a slim device.

I compared it with the Hot 3 and yup! The Hot 3 is slimmer than the Hot 4.

5. THE EARPHONE JACK IS NOW ON TOP AND THE CHARGING PORT/MIC BELOW

Unlike the Hot 3, you have the earphone placed on top and the USB port and mic placed below:

6. YOU GET A PLASTIC BACK COVER

One unique thing that differentiates the Hot 4 from the Hot 3 is its back cover. It comes in a plastic, “3d-textured” back cover.

By the way, thanks to the fact that the texture isn’t smooth, you have a firm grip on the phone.

7. THE HOT 4 HAS A REMOVEABLE BACK COVER, BUT NOT BATTERY

You can remove the back cover of the Infinix Hot 4. However, unlike the Hot 3, you cannot remove the 4000mAh battery

You also have the presence of a Dual-SIM card and MicroSD card slots.

Coming from the Hot S, this is definitely a relief
huge relief
 

8. THE FINGERPRINT AND THE 8MP BACK CAMERA HAVE A DEBOSSED PLACEMENT

?I had to search for the opposite of “emboss.” But for those who don’t understand, What I mean is that the fingerprint and the back camera on the Hot 4 don’t align with the back cover.

9. THE SPEAKER IS PLACED AT THE BACK.

QUESTION OF THE DAY: WHAT IS THE BEST SPEAKER PLACEMENT ON A SMARTPHONE, FRONT, BENEATH, OR BACK?

Honestly, I could swear that some months back, I was a speaker-should-be-placed-beneath-the-phone advocate, but after several audio blockages when playing games, I had a change of heart. Right now, I am in-between. But for those who support speaker placement at the back of the device, you would be glad to note that the Hot 4 followed through:

10. OH DEAR, STILL NO NOTIFICATION SENSOR

Infinix fans should better be prepared because I think the Company has taken a stance against the notification sensor as it is also absent on the Hot 4. Although you still have your proximity sensor and the front flash

11. THE CAPACITIVE BUTTONS ARE…. STILL THERE

Design-wise, the Hot 4 might not score high, this is because we still have the same design elements found on previous devices. One of which includes the presence of the gray capacitive buttons.

The slightly curved edges still bear similarities with others.

12. ALL THE BUTTONS TO THE RIGHT

All the buttons have been aligned to the right, these include your volume and power buttons.

13. SETTING UP THE HOT 4 IS A BREEZE

You won’t get any issues while setting up your device.

Lastly and based on a first impression, I can tell you that the fingerprint sensor experience is quite top-notch.

That is pretty much what you get with the Hot 4


 

OVERALL: 2ND QUESTION OF THE DAY

The Hot 4 is offering you a premium feature (The Fingerprint sensor) at an affordable price, but do you it has made it a worthy upgrade to the Hot 3?

    I love the quirkiness of your reviews, I usually find myself reading them even when I don’t care for the device just to have a laugh or two. I had several laughs with this one. Meanwhile, the Hot 4 looks like it’s built for men.

  24. platinum6ix says:

    To be honest, there’s nothing special about this device. It’s body is not even sexy at all compare to the note or hot note series.

  25. Tony Harie says:

    how am i just seeing this blog for he first time?????? Love the concept. Nice one MISS

  26. Liam Oforofuo says:

    Just seeing this review now, and I must say, am impressed with the way you took out time to explain the details with pictures backing your explanation. I have a question though. Is the cover jacket available in the market to buy and use on the phone, since the manufacturers didn’t make provision for that?

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Thank you so much. I haven’t seen any yet, but you can check Jumia to confirm. If you don’t find, you could get a similar Infinix cover that has the same size as the Hot 4.

  27. Neris says:

    Its got great specs but its body is like that of just infinix hot

  28. Itasian says:

  31. Freevolt says:

    I do not see much difference between this https://jiji.ng/mobile-phones/infinix-hot-3-x554 and that. Just pumping money. But in general the phone is excellent.

  32. Peter perekeme says:

    Please why do I have issues with my cover not properly covering my phone? I bought it barely three weeks ago and I have noticed that my cover is making some noise when tapped by my finger at back.i have tried to remove the cover for several times and cover it back just to see if it will fit proper but it is not.

  33. og says:

    After uninstalling my playstore , my hot 4 is taking time to booth

  34. halleluyah praiz says:

    This is my first time using hot 4 pro, it’s a nice phone. the battery, fingerprint. everything is perfect I love this phone.

  35. Bassey says:

    I bought infinix X556 not even up to a month, the phone refused to on. I took it repairing shop, the battery was unfix and boasted yet the same. what is the problem?

    1. Taijieh Moses says:

      Yes, I had the same problem. I have used the Infinix HOT 4 now, for 3 months, and the battery suddenly started misbehaving. At first, it took ages before it got fully charged. Later, it would charge up to 38% and get stuck there, without getting to a full charge. Now, the battery has drained out and I have tried charging it for the past 48 hours, and still it has refused to power on!! It sucks, honestly!
