The Infinix Hot 7 was launched in January 2019 and has enjoyed a presence in Kenya for several months now. In this review, we reveal the finest details of the Infinix Hot 7 features and limitations.
Let’s get started by discussing the 5 main selling features of the Infinix Hot 7.
6.2″ LCD Display
Every smartphone company is now aware that a larger display enhances the smartphone experience for people who like watching videos or playing games.
Infinix the company has therefore been continually increasing the display size for its smartphones.
The Infinix Hot 7 has a bumped-up screen size of 6.2″, as compared to the 5.5 inches that came with its immediate predecessor, the Infinix Hot 6.
The screen features a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, not yet to full HD levels, but good enough for any normal smartphone usage.
Apart from the screen size and resolution, the Infinix Hot 7 LCD Display also features impressive brightness levels, good for videos, games and making it readable under direct sunlight.
4,000mAh Large Battery
A big percentage of smartphones flourishing in the Kenyan market has a battery rating of 3,000mAh, some slightly less. Such battery capacities serve normal android phone users just fine.
However, in an effort to attract heavy smartphone users, the Infinix Hot 7 retains its predecessors’ high capacity battery traits.
For people who travel a lot and still need to stream their favorite movies and listen to music, this is a real deal.
4,000mAh is also an attractive feature for photo lovers, who need to capture those best moments without the need for a recharge.
If you are looking for a mid-range smartphone to browse the internet with the now available 4G speeds for several hours, you may need to add Infinix Hot 7 to your priority list.
What more? The Infinix Hot 7 retains the fast-charge technology that features in several other Infinix smartphones
With fast charge, you will be able to juice up your battery within a short period of time and run for several hours.
1.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor
This MediaTek processor is good enough for the fast opening of mobile apps, streaming videos and smooth gameplay for games that are not so demanding.
The Infinix Hot 7 processor offers good overall performance, but you still expect some lag when playing the most demanding games.
If you are looking for a smartphone for heavy tasks such as photo/video editing, playing heavy games, you may need to look elsewhere.
You can still get the Pro Version of the Infinix Hot 7, which features a 2.0 GHz processor.
Like most of their competitors, Infinix still relies on MediaTek processors to power their devices, which are not as fast as Qualcomm, Snapdragon and Huawei’s Kirin processor types.
Dual Rear Camera
The Infinix Hot 7 phablet features a 13MP main camera with a QVGA depth sensor, autofocus, 8MP selfie camera and an LED flash for both cameras.
If you are concerned about the quality of the videos captured, the smartphone has an output of up to 1080pixels, with a frame rate of 30fps.
I would say that 13MP with a depth sensor and autofocus is good enough for any smartphone user.
Forget the hype surrounding smartphone cameras with more megapixels. Always remember that more megapixels alone will not give you better images.
If you are looking for a pocket-friendly smartphone in Kenya that has a more than enough camera to capture all those memorable moments in pictures and videos, consider adding Infinix Hot 7 to your shopping cart.
1GB RAM, 16GB Internal Memory
Truth be told, 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM are no longer attractive values in the modern age. To facilitate heavy tasks with ease, people are looking for smartphones with at least 2GB RAM.
Smartphone users have ever-growing needs, especially the need to accommodate more apps and games, some of which easily occupy more than 1GB of storage.
Of course, the new operating system requires some storage space. Plus the pre-installed apps, probably 1GB.
With 16GB, you are left with about 13GB for additional apps, games, videos, music and anything else you would wish to keep.
You can still get some additional memory, but remember that apps stored and run from memory cards tend to be slower.
Simply said, heavy gamers may have a hard time coping with the 16GB internal memory that Hot 7 offers.
You still have the option of getting the Infinix Hot 7 Pro, which features 2GB RAM and 32GB internal memory.
