In the power house, you’ll find a 3,000 mAh of battery capacity, while this is just enough battery juice for a 5.2 incher, we expected just a little more, say 3,800 or even 4,000.

Apart from the finger-scan technology, the phone will also feature virtual reality (VR) technology, the Infinix Hot S will also feature apps like Movie Magic that enables you to stream videos directly.

If you’ve noticed, the Infinix Hot S has a very similar spec sheet as the Tecno camon C9 when you compare 2GB/16GB version of the Hot S with Canon Camon C9.

Hot S will be sold for about 180 USD for the 2GB/16GB version which translates to roughly N50,800 in naira and 200 USD (roughly N56,500) for the 3GB/32GB version when it launches by the 31st of July according to a reliable source from Infinix Mobility. Update: The infinix hot S is now available for purchase on Jumia, use the links provided below to order yours now.

  1. The phone is not looking like a slim one, looks a bit bulky from the pictures and the battery is not even that big in capacity so we can it’s becos of the big battery, anyway, i like the design and, i dont know for you but I’ll surely get one after its launch.

  2. The phone is good compare to all its specifications but wot peace me off is the Battery capacity which just 3000mAh, this Battery capacity is not encouraged in Nigeria where some places won’t have light for more than 3months, I think Infinix company Shd specially produced Nigeria own to have more than 6000mAh battery capacity. aside the Battery capacity, I think I’m impressed with the phone. thanks.

    1. @Adams, thanks for the unbiased feedback, I totally agree with you in the case of the battery, they should have done more than 3,000 mAh, we all expected them to…

    1. @Uchenna and Julls, the Hot S has no dedicated SD card slot, it use the second sim slot ( In the SIM panel) for memory card slot which will leave you with only a single SIM card space if you want to use SD card on the phone.

      The SIM/SD card slot is located at the left hand side of the phone.

  4. I like the latest infinix android like hot s and note 3 but the size is discouraging me to buy one of it, i think infinix authority will change the size of its mobiles.

  5. Your comment …y is it DAT d infinix hot s dose not indicate notification light wen message or bbm chat comes in and also wen charging it doesn’t indicate light

  6. The hot s is quit impressive regarding to its discussed features; but the power house is more or less excluded in regards of our anticipation

  7. I like infinix products but the hot 3 and hot 4 on West don’t have inferred as some of Samsung s4 going is having, comon guys add something please.
