Infinix Hot 3 Hands On Review


infinix hot 3

The Infinix HOT 3 is really comfortable when you hold it. You would even notice that it has a very good screen-to-body ratio (the distance between the phone screen and the body) making it possible for (the distance between the phone screen and the body) making it possible for you to have the best view of your favorite videos. Surprisingly, Infinix HOT 3 capacitive buttons (Menu, Home, and Back) don’t have light. Why? The light in the capacitive buttons was meant for easy navigation in the dark.

Furthermore, I discovered that Infinix HOT 3 doesn’t have a LED notification light so I can get a notification that my phone is charging without pressing the power button for the phone to come up neither can I get chats nor missed calls notification. Apart from that, the HOT 3 is a very light device compared to other devices with the same screen size and battery capacity.

Looking at the Back of the HOT 3, you can see the Rear Camera, LED Flashlight, and the Phone Speaker below. Placing the HOT 3 down would reduce the sound of the music playing because the speaker is placed directly at the back of the device. Having the Speaker positioned beside the phone mic would have been a better option so it wouldn’t mess up with the sound from the speaker.

There is an improvement in the display of  HOT 3 compared to its predecessor, Infinix HOT 2. The HOT 3 has 5.5-inch IPS screen with the brightness auto-adjusting, and it prevents glare while minimizing the distance between glass and screen for exceptional clarity and vivid picture. It comes with 5-fingers Multi-Touch, giving its users the ability all 5-fingers at the same time.


The 1GB RAM and 1.3GHz processor in the Infinix Hot 3 are just good for handling your specific needs and tasks. I was able to use it to edit the HOT 3 Unboxing smoothly and also play Duty Driver smoothly. It comes with XUI version 1.H.0.1 with Android 5.1 Lollipop. It comes with 16GB internal storage and an expandable storage of up to 64GB.

In addition, the  HOT 3 also comes preloaded with some useful apps from Infinix like XWallpaper (for free wallpapers), XClub (connect with other Infinix lover and get your technical questions answered), and XContacts (for uploading your contacts to Cloud so never lose your phone contacts even when you lose your phone). Preloaded social apps like WhatsApp, Twitter, BBM, Facebook, and PlayChat are just normal apps we get to see on new phones. WPS Office for reading and creating Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, which is an intelligent document management solution for individuals.


It features 8MP back camera with the aid of advanced technology to enhance light intake efficiency so you are assured of only superior picture quality. The night shooting mode makes it easy to capture high-resolution images even at nights or in poor lighting conditions. Its 2MP front camera uses a 16:9 light chip and 1.6µm large pixel for high definition picture quality so you can take the hottest selfies with ease.

The Infinix HOT 3 comes with Touch Shot (take pictures by touching the screen), Smile Shot (auto capture when smile is detected), Gesture shot (auto capture when gesture is detected), Voice Capture (it takes a picture of you when you say “Capture” or “Cheese”.) and other awesome features for capturing that beautiful pictures or scene.


The Hot 3 comes with 3,000 mAh with quick charging technology.  18% battery life you can still make use of the device for 6 hours then Switching ON the Ultra Power Saver would add more 2 hours to your current battery life which is good. Infinix HOT 3 gives you 9 hours of web browsing, 20 hours of talk time, and 33 hours of music. Also with minimal usage – calls, text messaging and few minutes with one or two apps.


The HOT 3 infinix performance is a good one for low budget phone and doesn’t get hot easily like most devices. The Infinix HOT 3 is very light for a device with the 5.5-inch screen and 3000mAh battery which is great.



  1. 5-inch Screen
  2. 3GHz Quad-core processor
  3. Mediatek MT6582 Chipset
  4. 16GB internal memory
  5. OTG support
  6. 3000mAh Battery with power saving mode
  7. It’s Affordable


  1. No backlit capacitive buttons
  2. No led light notification
  3. The back cover is too light. I thought I would break while opening the back to insert the battery.
  4. Speaker is at the back.
