So, Why is The Infinix Hot S so special?

The Hot S is the first Infinix Smartphone to have dual LED Flashlight

and it is also the first Infinix Smartphone to come with a fingerprint scanner.

The “S” means “Shot” so you can also call it “Infinix Hot Shot“.

Read on as we dive into more details:

Infinix hot s DESIGN

The Infinix Hot S comes with a sleek design with rounded edges.

The phone is super thin measuring at a thickness of 8.1mm and weighing only 140g, it is easier to handle than other jumbo phones.

Infinix has tried to maximize the screen to bezel ratio with almost no visible bezel on the left and right edges.

The manufacturer has chosen a classy black bezel which houses the standard android controls on the bottom, with a speaker grille, camera and flash on the top.

The rim features a mirror-finished metal while Infinix has preferred a matte metal finish for the back.

The back panel is completely flat to avoid any damage to the camera and flash when resting the phone on flat surfaces.

The Infinix Hot S is available in Champagne Gold, Med Blue, Glossy Silver, Berlin Gray and Rose Gold color options.

infinix hot s DISPLAY

In terms of display size, the Infinix Hot S can be called the little brother of the beastly 6-inch Infinix Note 2 and the Infinix Zero 3 and Infinix Hot 3, both featuring 5.5-inch displays.

The Hot S features a 5.2 inch IPS HD LCD screen with 283 pixels per inch.

Being an IPS screen the Hot S offers superb viewing angles, but we expect at least a Full HD screen from phones of this dimension.

The display lacks sharpness when compared to other models in the same category, but offers more than average contrast, brightness levels, and color saturation.

In our tests, movies played on the phone looked great with deep blacks and balanced colors, but only when viewed from some distance

SOFTWARE & Hardware

The Infinix Hot S has the highly customized XOS skin built on top of Android 6.0.

XOS features many convenient features built atop the Android OS.

It features fingerprint integration. From your contacts to your gallery, to your apps, everything can be locked behind fingerprint access.

It also features XHide which lets you manage all of your content from contacts, history, messages, photos, videos to even apps and music.

XOS also has large numbers of themes to choose from along with inbuilt task manager and QR functionality.


The phone runs on a 3000 mAh battery, which is just enough for the phone, but we expected a minimum of 3500 mAh.

Ideal battery size would have been 3800 or 4000 mAh.

The phone is not the most efficient when it comes to power usage and gives about 16 hrs of battery life on average usage with around 60 hrs of battery life on standby


The Infinix Hot S features a 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash for superb low light performance.

The 8 MP front camera features a soft-selfie flash to avoid any extra bright selfies and comes with a 120-degree wide angle shot.

The phone comes with many inbuilt modes and filter such as Profession mode, Square mode, and various movie templates.

The soft-light selfie flash is able to highlight the best moments of your face and gives you a selfie experience that matches the Camon C9 all the way.

You also have a Professional mode that will empower you to take pictures like any professional photographer around the world


The INfinix Hot S is powered by a 1.3 GHz Octa-core ARM Cortex 64-bit Processor and a MALI-T720 MP3 450MHZ GPU.

The phone has support for 2 micro SIM, the second SIM can be replaced by a Micro SD card of up to 128 GB.

It features an internal storage space of 16 GB, with options for 2 GB and 3 GB of RAM.

The phone can handle modestly graphic intensive games without much heating up.

Multitasking is a breeze with no noticeable lags when switching between apps.

Fingerprint scanner

The Hot S also comes with a fingerprint reader, the first in the Infinix line.

The fingerprint scanner can also be used as the shutter button when taking photos.
