Design

It has a plastic body with a gem-cut pattern on the back, as you can see. When tilting the unit at various angles, it becomes noticeable.

 But it attracts fingerprint traces and smudges very quickly because it has a glossy back. There is, luckily, a simple case included in the pack.

The camera module hardly protrudes further on the aesthetics, so there is very little risk of getting scratched when putting it on a flat surface. 

Similarly, the back has a fingerprint sensor, which is very fast and precise. All the same, it’s a big phone.

Display

You are greeted by a wide 6.78-inch screen on the front of the show. It’s your standard HD+ IPS LCD, so the lack of sharpness can be seen, but only when you get really close to the monitor. In many Infinix phones, a wide screen with a compact resolution has been a common mantra and this one is no different.

Barring the mediocre density of pixels, the efficiency of the display is very strong. With oversaturated colors and decent viewing angles, it is fairly bright, but there is a slight touch of a bluish tint.

Performance

As I mentioned earlier, on the performance side of things, you get the MediaTek Helio G70 chipset, which is an excellent budget gaming option. By the way, Infinix already has a G70-powered handset, the Infinix Note 7, available in Nepal.

And with a whopping 6 GB of RAM on board, I did not find any hiccups during my use while performing regular duties.

Cameras

It is only with good lighting that appropriate photos are brought out by the camera. But it’s a budget phone again, and we can’t expect its cameras to be amazing, I suppose.

The representations aren’t that poor though. If you manage to capture portraits in good lighting, as with primary pictures, they come out accessible.

Battery

As far as the battery is concerned, the Infinix Hot 10 has a large 5,200mAh cell with very impressive endurance. I might go as far as to suggest that one of the Infinix Hot 10’s scarce redeeming attributes is the battery.

I was able to get up to 8 hours of screen-on-time regularly. My use consisted more of YouTube binging, social media surfing, and gaming. So it’s safe to say that this phone would comfortably last in daily use for a single day. But it takes quite a lot of time to charge the battery because the phone only supports 10W charging through the Micro USB port.
