Infinix Hot 10S Review
The latest product in the Inifinix Hot series is here, the Hot 10S. This smartphone is a clear upgrade from its predecessor which was released a few months earlier. What makes the Hot 10S special? Read through this section to find out.
Display and Design
The design is the first thing that you see when you come across the Infinix Hot 10S. One look at this device and you will be enchanted by its amazing curved body. It shares a lot of physical attributes with its predecessor, the Hot 10. Nonetheless, there are a few upgrades that are quite noticeable.
One of the obvious differences is that the Hot 10S features the beautiful mirror-like “Salar de Uyuni” surface. This Bolivian-themed design seeks to mesmerize the user and others that see it with overflowing light and shadows. The device is quite handy as it measures 171.5 x 77.5 x 9.2 mm.
There is so much to adore about the display of this smartphone. In front, its display is 6.87 inches and it has a resolution of exactly 720 x 1640 pixels. The device also has an IPS LCD panel. All of these make this device fun to use.
The Hot 10S is a record-breaker. It is the first of all the phones in the Infinix Hot series to come with a 90Hz + 180Hz display. What is the implication of this? It means that you get to enjoy an amazing visual experience with a smooth display. Let’s not forget the fact that playing high-speed motion footage and swiping your screen will be a lot more interesting.
The phone has a touching sampling rate of 180Hz. What this means is that it possesses the ability to recognize your fingers better on the display. It also implies that it can detect the position of your fingers regardless of how rapidly they move across the screen. Overall, the screen-to-body ratio of the Hot 10S is about 83.1%.
We are in a social media age and the camera has become a very important component of smartphones. Infinix has done a good job with the cameras of the Hot 10S. It has two different cameras, the main camera, and the selfie camera.
The main camera is a 4-in-1 camera. It comes with 48 megapixels 0.8μm and 1.79/6P. This camera comes along with a depth camera and a 2-megapixel AI camera. The main camera is accompanied by a Quad-LED flash. With this flash, you are assured that the camera will capture all the details you need even in dark environments.
There are several other additions that come along with the camera to make it top-notch. Some of them include Face Beautification, Auto-Blur Videos, Fun Short Videos, and Eye-tracking Autofocus. The camera also has 240 FPS Slo-mo videos and 2K video resolution. Users also enjoy an 8MP selfie camera with a single AI portrait enhancement. This helps to create very beautiful videos and photos.
Software and Hardware
What is a smartphone with its software and hardware? Let’s take a brief look at the software and hardware of the Hot 10S. This smartphone comes with a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset. The design of this chipset is based on the 12nm process node. It is combined with an octa-core processor to give a speed of 2 x 2.0 GHz.
The Hot 10S also comes with a Mali-G52 MC2 graphics card. It runs on the XOS 7.6 operating system that is based on Android 11 OS. The device comes with different internal storage capacities. They include:

- 128GB + 4GB RAM
- 128GB + 6GB RAM

Battery and Network
Battery life is always a major concern, especially for smartphone users in Tanzania. Not to worry, the Hot 10S comes with a 6000 mAh battery. Along with this is the safe-charge feature that switches off power once the battery hits 100%. One challenge is that it does not come with the fast-charge feature.
The device allows for dual SIMs and a 4G LTE network. This smartphone also comes with GPS, micro-USB 2.0, and FM radio.
