However, the screen display is offer 12 ultrabright backlight LEDs, which will certainly guarantee you a more brilliant viewing experience, including both indoors and outdoor view.

The front facing camera is got an upgrade from 2 megapixels in the Hot 3 to 5 megapixels in the latest released version. This should make the Infinix Hot 4 better for selfies and wefies.

However, for the back camera, there isn’t much of an improve, as this smartphone (Infinix Hot 4) still comes with the 8 megapixels sensor with a five element lens system on top, which is just like the Hot 3. Like most of Infinix devices, the camera offers a LED flash with autofocus, when taking photos.

Hardware and Software Reviews

The Infinix Hot 4 is currently running on the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). So far, i have been keeping tabs and noticed, that this is the 3rd smartphone from Infinix to offer Marshmallow, and at the same time, it is the 2nd smartphone to come with the software out of the box. Just like the normal trends with Smartphone producers, the Infinix is offering the phone with its own customised skin, the XOS.

According to information released by the infinix, the XOS offers an excellent interactive experience and decreases battery consumption by at least 30%, which means in the Hot 4, you’ll get more battery time, compared to other released devices.

However, for those who would love to store more music, videos, pictures, PDF, DOC files, etc, you should not be bothered by the 16gb built in storage, because you can easily increase it by inserting the 32GB via a microSD slot.
