One of the major difference which some people fail to see, is that the Hot 2 X510 comes with a display of TFT LCD, and not an IPS LCD.

You should know that the TFT LCD displays do have some flaws when it comes to color reproduction and delivering excellent viewing angles. So what am trying to say here, is that Color accuracy is a major issue with the Infinix Hot 2.
