  1. Please review your post very well Mr. Mobility Arena, there is no way a 5.2 inch phone with a screen resolution of 720 by 1280 HD will translate into 424 ppi. It is absolutely impossible even wuthout a ppi cal.

  2. I love this device (infinix -X521)but my problem here is that if playing music with my headphones or with another gadgets the music will stop if i raise the volume more than volume helf.please what is the solution ro this?

    1. Hello khalid,

      Ufone (Pakistan; right?) uses the following bands: 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, and 2100 MHz. All those frequency bands are supported by the Infinix Hot S. So, yes; it will work on Ufone.

  3. Jojo, I dont think you really know what ppi means. It is the product of your screen size and your screen resolution. The higher the screen resolution and the lower the screen size, the higher the ppi, and the more the ppi of your screen, the better the screen quality in all respects. Mr. Yomi, the writer of the post I commented on has since effected the necessary correction, i.e. from 424 ppi to 282 ppi as you can see in this post. This is because he is not a layman in this field. Lastly, I want you to know that technical language is for people with technical knowledge-Jojo take note.

    1. Infinix hot s comes with 5.2 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 424 pixels per inch (PPI) what’s all the fuss about?…

  4. Guys,

    The Infinix website lists the Hot S display as a HD display. HD aka 720p means a pixel measurement of 1280 x 720 pixels.

    So, Attahiru is correct. The Hot S has a 1280 x 720 pixel display, not 1920 x 1080. That means the PPI is 282, not 424.
