Last week, Infinix surprisingly announced a new phone, the Infinix Hot 4. This a successor to the Infinix Hot 3 launched some months ago. We decided to place both phones side by side and compare the major features they carry. Its Infinix Hot 4 vs Hot 3 royal rumble.

A look at the comparison tells us that these two devices share a lot in common. The Infinix Hot 4 has a fingerprint sensor, a 5 MP selfie camera, and a bigger 4000 mAh battery. This is also reflected in the higher price. Overall, there isn’t much gap between the two devices. Is the upgrade worth it?


  1. First , you’ve got some figures mixed up above, the two phones cannot have the same screen (5.5 inches) sizes, different screen resolutions (720 x 1280 pixels and 1080 x 1920 pixels respectively) and still end up with the ppi (267).
    Secondly, the only upgrades I see here are:
    1. from 2MP selfie camera to 5MP selfie camera
    2. the addition of fingerprint sensor.
    The following were actually downgraded
    1. The battery (from 4000mAh to 3000mAh)
    2. Internal storage (from 32GB to 16GB)
    3. Operating system (from Marshmallow to Lollipop)
    These downgrades are deal breakers as far as I am concerned.

  2. I think the writer mixed up the specs. Please confirm, cos I really don’t understand how you go from Marshmallow to Lollipop and den downgrade ur battery for a fone that’s supposed to be the latest version.

  3. Lol did you just type 64bit Mt 6580 cortex a53?

    You obviously aren’t a Tech-Geek, ’cause tech geeks know that 64bit cortex cores are the arm cortex A57 and the recently released A72 cortex cores from arm.

  4. Can someone please explain what the purpose of the Infinix Hot 4 is? Are these guys actually in Nigeria or producing from afar? Because I don’t understand the duplicity of phones only with different names.

    A fingerprint sensor, an extra 1000mah, and 5mp front camera are all to me nothing worth producing another phone for, probably there was a mistake at Infinix Mobility and they actually intend releasing this spec earlier as Hot 3
