Although hot 10 packs with a 5200mah large battery, the device doesn’t seem hefty by any means. However, with its plastic build, you have to say goodbye to superior feel if you were supposing any here. Though, in its design, nothing is so premium at all. We found Quad camera format and a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the handset. The fingerprint scanner works well to unlock the phone without any delay. On the right hand, you get the power key and volume rocker. Though on left, here is a dual SIM slot along with a devoted memory card slit. Down beneath, we found a 3.5mm earphone jack, a mic, amazingly a micro-USB slot for data transfer and charging. Here is also a mono speaker for audio sound.

  • Resolution 720×1640 pixels
  • HD display

Infinix Hot 10 lands with a 6.78-inches large screen that offers an HD display with a resolution of 720×1640 pixels. This large screen and resolution are good for watching T.V shows and movies of your choice. This display is larger and perky but not too bright than on other top-ends and outside brightness is certainly on the lesser side. Even though inside the intensity seems dim about 75% worth.

You have to put it at a worth of above 80-85% for contented viewing in any setup. In General, the experience on Hot 10 is quite well when you have such a large display in your hands. However, the resolution is limited to 720p proves to sufficient ich if we relate to the opponent. But all of the rivals such as the Redmi 9 have a bit smaller display and the resolution of 720p on the large display absolutely hurts.

  • Octa-core Helio G70 processor
  • 4GB/6GB RAM
  • 64GB/128GB storage
  • XOS operates on Android 10
  • Improved gaming and multitasking performance

The Infinix Hot 10 motorizes with the MediaTek Helio G70 processor joins up with 64GB /128GB Storage and 4GB/6GB of RAM. Its Helio processor with brilliant regulation of GPU and CPU improves multitasking and gaming performance. Here you will feel no pause during gaming and can switch easily between apps while playing games. The model we reviewed got 128GB Storage and 6GB RAM.

Enactment wise, the phone shows fast and receptive performance to every task. While opening the app or other multitask the device shows rapid response without any pause. RAM regulation was decent too with a quick app launch. However, there is the only thing that can bother you, its User interface. The Hot 10 operates on XOS built on Android 10 software. In Infinix Hot 10, the UI feels a little caricature and incomplete too. Overall the performance in Hot 10 is decent.

Infinix Hot 10 Camera

  • Tetra Quad Camera Format
  • 16MP main, 2MP macro, 2MP depth, a dim light lens
  • 8MP front Selfie Snapper
  • Dual Selfie Flash

Infinix Hot 10 comes with a quad rear snapper array. It comprises a blend of 16MP main lens, 2MP depth, 2MP macro sensors, and an AL sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper kept in the blow-hole cutout. The photos taken in well lighting situations were normal or even less than that. The colors appeared just fine with less-average vibrant variety. Few quantities of sharpness exist though but it was not so prevailing at all. Close-ups and Portrait mode photos appeared decent with good verge exposure and a good extent of Bokeh effect. However, the acuity and facts in photos were absent and they seemed quite lenient. The great macro mode collects niceties in a great close up a snap. Though yet again the image was lenient and a little fuzzy when we zoomed in.

When coming to the front, to take selfies on infinix Hot 10, we will say a big no to users. The exposure is on the advanced side and the selfies appear out to be too perky with bit colors. The selfies appear out to be too indulgent and all the colors looked fade too. In our view, do not purchase the handset for selfies as they do not appear classy to share on media. However, the Hot 10 keeps a unique spec that you won’t get in any handset at this price point. It has a dual facade flash that seems somewhat like the duplicate belThe the snapper even tried further dim light situations her as the shots appeared to pierce with faded colors.

Battery Life

  • 5200mah battery
  • 10W fast charging
  • Micro USB port for charging
  • Standby two days of light use

Infinix Hot 10 lands with a 5,200mAh large battery with a 10W charging adaptor that comes with it in the box. For charging, it has a micro USB port which is shocking as the world takes off to Type C ports. Though, just thinking its rivals are offering the same, it was the type of a predictable move. The Hot 10’s battery life was prodigious. The large battery was just used to clout a 720p screen. It joined with a power effective CPU, just brings the battery life to an alternative rank.

We have tested its battery life by using it for 24 hours. While watching movies on YouTube, using Facebook and Instagram for many hours the device still shows 22% left in the tank. Though, with lighter use, the phone can simply standby for 2 days or even more. When on charging, the handset takes about 2.5 hours to run from 21% to 100%. It is expecting that it will take 3 hours to charge from 5% to full with 10W of the charger.

Conclusion

Infinix Hot 10 is a budget handset that offers you large storage with a larger display too. If you want a big storage budget handset then you should go for it. If you want selfies then the infinix Hot 10 is not suitable at all.
