Infinix is one of the first brands to apply the principle of value for price and has revealed many phones in the economy class that are distinguished by the fact that they come with powerful specifications that are useful to the user at a very reasonable price cheaper than all other phones, which made it occupy a special place in the hearts of users even if the company's presence in In recent years, we will dedicate this article to talk about the specifications and price of the Infinix Hot 10S.
The Hot 10S comes with a large screen that is close to the size of a tablet, with an emphasis on making the gaming experience smooth and exciting for the user. All these powerful features did not raise the price of the phone at all, as you can buy it for less than $ 200. So, let's take a tour to delve into the price and specifications of the new Infinix Hot and all the other features and details.
The price of the Infinix Hot 10S is one of the most important features and points of sale that will attract thousands of users to buy the phone, as it was priced at $ 152 for the 4 + 64 GB version, while the 6 + 64 GB version comes for 173 in the Asian and European markets.
Hot 10S is sold in Egypt for only 2355 pounds for the 4 + 64 GB version, while the higher version 6 + 64 GB was priced at 2626 pounds, which is a good price because the user will get an excellent phone with strong specifications for a price that does not exceed 3 thousand pounds, and therefore it is an option Suitable for almost all users.
The phone was revealed on April 12, 2021 and it became officially available in the markets starting from May 12 of the same year in almost most markets, a feature that is calculated for the company since its entry into the world of smart phones, as it is very keen to launch its phones in almost most markets and make it available to the largest number of users Especially in developing markets.
Like other budget smartphones, the Infinix Hot 10S comes with a plastic design along with a good choice of colors such as green, blue, black and purple.
The back panel of the phone is glossy and eye-catching, although some might find it a bit flashy. It should be mentioned that the design of the back panel is inspired by the Salar de Uyuni Lake in South America, specifically in Bolivia, which is the largest salt lake in the world.
We also have a screen with a central hole that houses the front camera next to the dual LED flash, we have a camera on the back that consists of three sensors that are slightly protruding and LED flash and we also have a fingerprint sensor.
The bottom contains a speaker, a 3.5mm headphone port and a micro-USB port, the right side of the phone contains the power button and two volume control buttons. The left side contains the SIM card tray. The phone comes with a dual SIM slot and a MicroSD slot in order to expand the internal storage space.
The phone comes with a 6.82-inch IPS LCD screen that comes with HD + quality. Personally, I would have preferred the company to sacrifice the large screen size in exchange for better resolution, but that was not annoying in the end.
When watching videos, we recommend that you set the video resolution to 480 max since when watching videos at 720p resolution the colors will appear a bit faded which will annoy the user.
Since smartphones are with us in almost every moment of our lives, you need to be able to see your phone screen clearly under the sun. Fortunately, the Hot 10S NFC has a sufficient peak brightness of 440 nits. So even on a sunny day, you can use the phone outside in comfort.
We have a sufficient screen-to-body ratio, but the most prominent point in the screen is that it supports a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a powerful feature that will tip the balance of the phone when compared to other competitors in the same price segment. The user will feel very smooth in the experience of use, especially when watching videos, movies and games as well.
The Hot 10S comes with a decent 4 or 6 GB RAM, 64 or 128 GB internal storage, and is powered by a Helio G85 processor.
In order for the user to know how powerful this processor is, the Helio G85 comes with improvements of 210% in GPU performance and 84% in CPU performance compared to the previous Helio G35 processor.
When you put all that powerful internal hardware together with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sensitivity rate, the end result is an incredibly smooth user experience for an absolutely cheap price.
As for the software, the phone comes with the pre-installed Android 11 operating system that is based on the XOS 7.6 user interface, thanks to the powerful processor from MediaTek, all daily tasks, browsing the web and social networking sites are easy and we have not had any problem at all with regard to switching between applications .
In order to experience better performance and get the most out of the processor, we recommend removing all pre-installed apps as we have found that they slow down the phone at times and are not necessary.
Among the pre-installed Infinix apps, unfortunately most of them are not removable, however, if you were to disable their notifications, you wouldn't feel their presence very much. There are also some annoying ads, but you can disable them completely and never see them again.
We were going well on our Infinix Hot 10S review but unfortunately the camera disappointed us quite a bit. We have a rear camera consisting of 48 + 8 MP sensors next to the Al sensor. We have a single 8MP front camera that takes selfies and is assisted by a dual LED flash just like Hot 10s NFC.
The rear camera is able to take some good pictures that are suitable for sharing on social media, but only in good lighting conditions. We weren't too surprised since we don't expect more from a phone that comes in under $200 in fact.
What is the Al sensor? Unfortunately, we do not know what the purpose of that camera is yet, the company says that the function of that sensor is to improve the quality of the captured image, which we did not feel when we tested the camera, so it seems that the quality of the images depends entirely on the ambient lighting conditions.
There had to be a good macro sensor or ultra-wide lens but this is perfectly acceptable given the price of the phone first and then the target user category.
This great experience was expected to be completed by a giant battery that has a long life, which is what we have here already as the phone comes backed by a 5000 mAh battery that can handle heavy tasks and long gaming sessions and will last for more than a day in all usage scenarios.
When the battery capacity reaches 5%, there is the Ultra Power Saver feature that allows for up to 3 hours of battery life to be extended but only for doing routine things like making calls and sending SMS.
The most prominent negative points are the slow fast charging that comes with a capacity of only 10 watts, as the phone takes 3 full hours in order to fully charge the battery, which is a long time for sure.
The factors that will make any phone succeed in the economic category specifically are the amount of features that the phone will provide to the user and how much he will pay for them, the selection process has become about value for price only, and this is what the Hot 10S succeeded in, which applied those criteria with distinction, there is no better screen in that price category We have not yet found any competing phone that offers stronger performance or better battery life. The camera may certainly be bad and did not provide any addition, but the user cannot get everything he wants in a phone at a price of less than $ 200, right?
