Yesterday, Google in collaboration with Infinix launched the Infinix Hot 2. Recall that, late last year, Infinix released the original Infinix Hot and it was a commercial success owing to it’s great value for money. We reviewed it on MobilityArena.com and saw it to be a Classic budget device. The successor is here and we decided to pitch these two together in a comparison review.
Let’s see the key specifications.
|Infinix Hot||Infinix Hot 2|
|Display: 5.0 inches, 480 x 854 pixels, 196 PPI.||Display: 5.0 inches, 720 x 1280 pixels, 320 PPI. Glass Protection|

|2,000 mAh battery||2,200 mAh battery|
|N16,500||N17,500 (1GB RAM); N19,500 (2GB RAM)|
From the above table, we can see that both phones share the same processor and internal memory, and that’s about it. The Infinix Hot 2 comes with a better design and glass finishing, better display and better back camera (Same module in the Infinix Hot Note). The Hot 2 also comes with higher battery capacity and runs the latest version of Android with promised updates in the future.
It’s clear the Infinix Hot 2 dusts the Infinix Hot and in this regard unseats it as the king of budget devices. Meanwhile, expect our review of the Hot 2 soonest.
