Remember the Jim’s Big Thing courtesy of Infinix, Jumia and MTN? It’s finally out and it’s the infinix hot note smart phone device.
The device was officially launched yesterday being Monday 9th, 2015 in Jumia’s office around Adeniyi Jones, ikeja. Although I was invited to the event, I couldn’t make it on time due to other commitments. I will however, share some pictures from the event as soon as I get them.
Now back to the infinix hot note device, we got a unit before the device was officially launched (Thanks to infinix Mobile Nigeria). And we have as usual, done the Unboxing and quick review of the device. If you missed the post, you can read it here and also watch the video there.
Honestly, based on my usage of the device so far, it feels very light in the hands hence, making it feel very portable to play with. We got the copper brown color and I sure love the device.
Infinix Hot Note Specifications and Features
Talking about the processor, the infinix hot note doesn’t run on the too common quad-core processor. It runs on something better which is the MediaTek Octa-core 1.4 GHz Chipset processor.
However, it still comes packed with a 1GB RAM size which facilitates functionality and speed.
Talking about the display, the device comes with a 5.5-inch HD Display (not IPS) alongside a thickness of 8.9mm and a weight of 172g. With such specs, the device is pretty slim and light as earlier mentioned. The display screen is 720 x 1280 HD resolution.
Talking about the infinix hot note battery, Infinix mobile didn’t disappoint as the hot note device is packed with a 4000mAh lithium polymer battery capacity which promises 2 days of uninterrupted usage.
The device also promises 3X faster charge which means that, in less than an hour charge, you can operate your device for 36 hours which is equivalent to 1 and half days. One hour of charge is said to give you about 75% charge which is equivalent to 3000mAh of the innjoo note device.
Talking about its camera, the hot note smartphone is packed with an 8MP back camera with an autofocus feature alongside a flashlight which should help with nice pictures even during the night times.
The front camera is 2MP which supports a 75-degree wide-angle shooting range suitable for easy selfish with a friend.
The device is really stylish and sophisticated and comes in 4 basic color variant; Mint Green, Anthracite Grey, Champagne Gold, Copper Brown. The device also comes with metallic frame structure which we stated on the Unboxing Video of the device. Both Sims (Sim 1 and Sim 2) support 2G and 3G network. Hence, no more do you have to bother with which sim to use to help facilitate faster browsing. The device runs on the Android 4.4.2 Kitkat version and we are hoping it gets the lollipop update soon.
What about rooting and changing the infinix hot note phone?
The same day we got the infinix hot note device, I was able to root it easily using a one click rooting app. I didn’t have to bother using a PC. I haven’t yet changed the IMEI number but based on my speculation so far, it’s going to be very easy. Tutorial regarding how to root the smartphone will be published shortly. So, do I recommend you purchase the device? YES! I would sure recommend it.
