I also discovered that there are lots of other sensible upgrades to this device, which I truly appreciate. The very first major difference is the approach to usage of the frontal space as the smartphone has minimal bezels, which automatically help creates more space for a bigger display.

Design and Display

Infinix didn’t shame their fanbase, as they did follow the current trend of all newly manufactured smartphones around the world. We all know the current trends giant smartphone producers set, which is, making recent smartphones with a slim bezel and compact design. The Infinix Hot 6 still belongs to the budget category with a plastic design, which is still peculiar to this sector of the market.

Dual cameras are strategically placed at the top left corner of the smartphone, while the fingerprint sensor is geared towards the center with Infinix logo just below it.

You should probably know this, and that is, this device display is not too crisp, and the 18:9 ratio has dark bars surrounding it, and little bezel to the side too.

This smartphone display is backed up by TFT technology, I think some of you may like it, but personally, this is outdated and not too modern in my opinion. With a size of 5.7 inches, the screen of the Infinix Hot 6 is large enough to enjoy whatever gives you joy, either it’s your gaming, movies or reading, although, the 1440 X 720 pixels resolution might be a minor setback for those who want a larger display.

Camera and Battery

On the positive side, Infinix Hot 6 did absolutely great on the Camera’s, the Infinix Hot 6 impresses us here on, although in all honesty, the battery capacity is not that big of a monster, but is enough for extensive usage and can last for days. With a huge 4,000mAh of stored power, you’re in safe hands to surf the internet, play games, watch movies, listen to music all day long. The smartphone is capable of lasting more than 24 hours of use. In addition, the smartphone also comes with a fast charge.

Still joining the bandwagon of trending features on newly released smartphones, the Infinix Hot 6 comes with a dual camera, with a combination of a 13MP and 2MP back-facing camera. This phone comes with features like 2x zoom, continuous shooting, face detection among other amazing features. At the front, the smartphone comes with a 5MP camera for selfies.

Hardware and Software

Here, I won’t say am too impressed with the software used in the creation of this smartphone. The Infinix Hot 6 has a low-grade MediaTek chipset. Coming with a four-core MediaTek MT6763 processor, with a frequency of 1.3GHz going with a Mali-T720 MP1 GPU. This chipset delivers a decent gaming experience and the performance is fairly smooth.

But with the Infinix Hot 6 Pro, the software is much better, since it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor.

For the rest of the package, you have 2GB and 3GB RAM models, with a corresponding 16GB alongside a 32GB internal storage. Take note that both storage variants, but can still be extended up to 128GB using a memory card. The infinix Hot 6 runs on the latest XOS Hummingbird 3.3, based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
