Infinix Hot 5: Here’s Why Your Village People Won’t Hate You If You Don’t Buy One


Like they say, “Love is a beautiful thing” It’s either you love or hate, you can’t possibly feel both at a time. Can you?

Well, if you know someone who usually has such kind of mix feelings, I’ll advise you tell him to go do a medical checkup.

Not right now though!

Just after you finish reading this post.

While some folks will argue that Infinix makes great good phones, others may even fight you believing otherwise. Yeah yeah… some will.

But in all arguments, it’s unarguable that Infinix is leading the hierarchy when it comes to cheap and affordable phones in Africa.

…Cheap and affordable phones that could make a blind man see on Black Friday.You can never tell, cos the spirit moves in mysterious ways. (Lol…)

I make a toast to that.

Infinix recently unveiled it’s Hot 5, making it a successor to the the Hot 4 and a big brother to the line of Infinix Hots.

Which makes sense….

But a couple of folks didn’t welcome it so well.

Undermining that, Infinix is already pumping money into promoting the Hot 5, and to be honest, it has gotten a couple of people bored and left others with a disappointed feeling.

And this is the question I’ve asked myself hundreds of times in a minute “Can I advice someone to go for the Hot 5?”

I just don’t want to take actions that will make my village people angry with me. (Smiles…) You know how crazy your village people could be at times.

Well, well there’s a delightful news

If you’re currently using an Infinix device probably the Hot 4 or Hot 4 Pro, it turns out that your village people are okay if you don’t upgrade to the Hot 5.

This is because the Hot 5 doesn’t come with any looked-out-for feature or high end improvement.

The Hot 5 comes in 5 colour variants; green, white, gold, black, and red.

In terms of design it has a dual speaker in front.  Infinix has replaced the physical buttons on the Hot 4 with soft buttons on the Hot 5

Specs wise, there’s the usual 3.5mm earphone jack located at the top and a Micro USB port at the buttom. The Front Soft Light flash is also included, located just beside the 5 MP front-facing camera.

At the back is the 8MP back/primary camera with LED flash, a dual SIM card slot (unfortunately, it doesn’t support 4G), a MicroSD card slot (expandable up to 64GB) and a sealed 4,000 mAh non-removable battery.

There’s also a fingerprint sensor.

So What’s new in the Infinix Hot 5?

One obviously new feature of the Hot 5 that should catch your interest is the …

Okay… I found it

Am thinking those folks who love watching movies on their smartphones will love this.

It’s the “Mobile Cinema” – Yeah, this is something new. A distinguishable improvement.

With the Hot 5 dual front speakers powered by Dirac Stereo Widening technology, you’re sure going to spend more data downloading movies and of course watching them. (Lol…)

The Dirac Stereo Widening technology creates realistic entertainment with high-impact audio & video.

There’s something else…

The Infinix Hot 5 comes with the new released XOS 2.2

XOS is an Infinix exclusive customized operating system based on Android N. Providing an excellent interactive experience with innovative features such as custom themes, Multi Account, and Freezer. XOS will personalize your mobile experience while also decreasing power consumption.

The Hot 5 coming out of the box with the Android 7.0 is a bit slimmer than the Hot 4 and weighs 169g less than the Hot 4 175g weight.

Here’s a highlight of the Hot 5 Specifications
