Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 8 sports a 2.5D curved 6.5″ HD+ IPS big screen display with a 720 x 1600p and 269 ppi at 105ppcm, though this is quite low for a 6.5″ phone. It comes with a 20:9 screen ratio and has great viewing angles. You have an 81.71% screen to body ratio.
Having dimensions of 165 x 76.3 x 8.7mm, a glass front and a polycarbonate back, it looks somewhat like the Infinix S4. It is quite big to hold and not something to slide into your pocket, with a weight of 179g. Comes in brilliant Cosmic Purple, midnight black and Quetzal cyan colours, with tiny bezels.
Os and Performance
The Infinix Hot 8 runs on Android 9 pie with XOS 5.0 Cheetah.
Powered by Media Tek Helio P22(6762) Octa-core 4x 2.0GHz ARM Cortex A-53, 4x 1.5GHz Cortex A-53 processor built on a 12nm process, clocked at 2000 MHz CPU frequency. We have a PowerVR GE 8320 at 650MHz handling GPU set.
For RAM we have a 4GB LPDDR4 single channel RAM and a 64GB eMMC ROM.
The Hot 8 packs a triple rear camera set up. We have a 13mp main camera CMOS with f/2.0 aperture that shoots at 4160 x 3120p and 2.07mp video resolution, a 2mp depth sensor and an additional low light sensor.
At the waterdrop notch sits an 8mp CMOS selfie camera of f/2.0 aperture.
This is the most interesting part of the phone. The Infinix Hot 8 packs a 5000 Li-Poly mAh battery for good 3 day usage.
The Infinix Hot 8 didn’t quite meet my expectations, what are your opinions.
