First Impression

There are quite a lot of things made noticeable by this company in this device. From all indications, this smartphone seems to be one of their most beautiful designed device. The Infinix Hot S3 comes with an amazing 5.65 inches screen with Full HD display resolution, the screen has a 2.5D curve at the edges and a resolution of 720 by 1440 pixels with about 285 pixels per-square inch, which is a little bit added upgrade to their previous device screen.

This affordable device is running on the Android 8.0 Oreo, coupled with the company’s XOS v3.0 skin on top. Just in case you are not aware, the Infinix XOS has been extensively accepted by the public, for it’s sleek and well designed user interface.

Another top notched upgrade on this device is it’s processor. The Hot S3 is equipped with an Octa-core processor that clocks at 1.4 GHz with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset for faster experience. However, the RAM capacity is 3GB and this actually made me smile, you can compare it to devices like the Zero 4 edge, and professionally speaking, not a bad idea from the board, responsible for the creation of this phone.

The Hot S3 features a smashing 32GB inbuilt storage space, which is the minimum and maximum on the Hot S3 series. But don’t be disappointed, because higher inbuilt memory means higher purchase price. But the good news is that this device comes with an extra slot for MicroSD, and can be expanded to 128GB.

For readers of, you’ll know that the Hot S series is majorly created selfies lover. The Hot S3 comes with great front camera specs than the back camera, automatically making it, the best infinix phone for taking selfies and wefies ever!
