Infinix Hot Note Specs

Here are a few specs of the Infinix Hot Note X551:


Display Size: 5.5 inches

Display Type: IPS LCD

Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 267 ppi

Screen Protection: None

Like i said in the overview, the Infinix Hot Note comes with a 5.5-inch 720p display screen. I noticed that the colors looks vibrant on the display, and it does not matter whether it is under a 0% display setting, it still looks great and vibrant.

The screen light is extremely bright and can easily make your shade your eyes in dark, because of it’s brightness. However, the main reason why i didn’t add this to the disadvantage list, is because this device comes with a light sensor, and you can easily change the brightness level to suit your sight.

Infinix Hot Note Performance

Infinix hot note Performance

The simple truth is, i was actually expecting the Infinix Hot Note performance to be below average, but am surprised to see that this device performed much more than i expected. Using this smartphone, you won’t be face with slow loading, hanging etc, because it is non-existent and the transition from one menu to the next is flawless.

One major feature why this was achievable, is that the infinix hot note is powered by eight 1.3 GHz cores. This is the major reason why there is no Lag, hanging or slow loading experienced in this device.

This smartphone has some applications which are already downloaded and installed, such as WhatsApp and Swiftkey. But the goodnews? You can be able to uninstall all the pre-installed Apps anytime, anywhere. This was a major problem with earlier Android smartphones.

The Hot Note features a 16 GB internal memory, of which 10 GB is available to you. However, for heavy downloaders or those who wants much more than the 10GB, Goodnews! There is a added Micro SD Slot, and you can use up to 32 GB of memory to store your Videos, Movies, Music, Pictures, Documents, etc.

Camera Review

Back Camera: 8 MP

Front Camera: 2 MP

LED Flash Availability: Yes

The Infinix Hot Note comes with a 8MP back camera and 2 MP front camera for taking personal or group selfies.  One outstanding truth is that several budget smartphones comes with great camera specifications and features, but does not take great live pictures. However, in this case, it is a total difference game. As the 8MP back camera snaps clearer photos and the front 2MP camera is also clear too.

The 8MP back camera is able to capture images at a 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution, and the photos? They’re beautiful, clearer and exceed my expectations.

What i Don’t Like?

The only thing i don’t like about the Infinix Hot note is that it comes with a non-removable battery. Apart from this fact, this smartphone is too good to be true.
