Infinix Hot 6 Pro is one of its manufacturer’s 2018 smartphones and appearance-wise, it is up-to-date with a FullView Display. You know how we roll here at MobilityArena: we got our hands on one and have our Infinix Hot 6 Pro review ready just for you.
A quick preamble: the Hot 6 Pro is the more equipped version of Infinix Hot 6, with which it shares a number of common features. Both devices have a 6-inch FullView Display, and 4000mAh battery.
NB: Note that we had the phone for only a little time and so this Infinix Hot 6 Pro review is a hands-on review.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro Review: Hardware
The Hot 6 Pro looks good, thanks in part to the 18:9 aspect ratio of the display. It is tall and slim. And it has a thin profile too. Which has us wondering how Infinix Mobility fit a 4,000mAh battery in the thin body. We saw the same thing with the itel P32. See our itel P32 hands-on review for details.
The plastic build is solid too and not plasticky the cheap way.
On the back of the phone is a dual rear camera, comprising of a 13 megapixels lens and a 2 megapixels lens. Both are autofocus. On the front of the phone is a 5 megapixels selfie fixed focus camera.
A short distance below the rear camera is the fingerprint scanner which works for unlocking the phone, among other authentication tasks.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro Review: Software
Beyond the hardware, Infinix Hot 6 Pro runs Android 8.0 Oreo with XOS on top of it. XOS is Infinix Mobility’s custom skin. We have an XOS Chameleon review. The XOS version on the Hot 6 Pro is 3.2 nicknamed Hummingbird. It is a more refined version.
XOS adds extra functionality to the core Android features. For example, it includes the ability to download and install themes so you can customise your device further.
In use, the phone runs smoothly. We had no time to throw heavier tasks at it, but given the 1.4 GHz processor, it won’t be a surprise if it stutters under heavy tasks. The 3 GB RAM is a solid decision though: switching between multiple apps is smooth.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro Review: Wrap Up
We cannot round up this hands-on review without mentioning again that the Hot 6 Pro has a big 4,000 mAh battery. Of course, we were unable to test the battery life or its charging technology, but the official specs sheet does indicate that this phone does not have fast battery charging.
Lastly, the Hot 6 Pro is a 4G smartphone, and we can confirm that MTN 4G, 9mobile 4G, and Airtel 4G work fine on it. One of our MobilityArena community members, Ayodele, also confirms that ntel 4G works on it.
And this Infinix Hot 6 Pro review is a wrap. The phone is a very attractive proposition and we think that it is a compelling offer in the lower mid-range.
