Design and Display
The appearance of the Infinix Hot 7 Pro will get on the right side of many, and vice versa. That’s owing to different reactions to the notched display. That aside, the notch houses the front camera, light sensor, proximity sensor, earpiece and LED flash. It’s practically the same with its brother in this segment.
Thanks to the design and aspect ratio, the phone’s 6.26-inch screen delivers enough display for gamers and movie lovers to enjoy. Its resolution of 720 x 1500pixels provides good clarity of texts and input. At the base of the display area is the bottom chin.
Double sensors are built into the camera module at the phone’s back. A dual-LED flash appears underneath the cameras while a fingerprint scanner is seen not too far away from the above setup.
Battery and Camera
Transsions Holding subsidiary, Infinix Mobility has been able to steal the heart of budget buyers with the assurance of tough battery life. Hot 7 Pro follows that same trajectory with its 4,000mAh non-removable battery. Due to the absence of Fast Charge, you’ll have to spend a considerable amount of time charging the phone’s battery.
Camera-wise, the phone produces superb images by the action of the rear’s 13MP main shooter in conjunction with a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera, on the other hand, brings crisp selfies to life with its 8MP lens.
Hardware and Software
The powerhouse in this device remains the same as the Hot 7, and that’s the MediaTek MT6580P composed of Quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and Mali-400 GPU. Their choice for a low-end chip of this magnitude feels belittling. But then, it causes a considerable drop in the smartphone’s price. That said, a 3GB RAM works with the chip for effective multitasking.
As much as 32GB gives you enough room to store all forms of files on the phone. More good news is that the storage can be expanded to 128GB through a MicroSD card. Infinix’s latest software (XOS Honeybee 4.1), based on the Android 8.1 Oreo OS, gets the software show running on the device.
