The Hottest: Infinix Hot S Review

Beauty, they say, lies in the eyes of the beholder. The Infinix Hot S is the next best thing in the Infinix Hot series. This device was launched just months after the release of the Infinix Hot 3. The naming is different here, and we can’t really say the motive behind that. But the recent release of the Infinix Hot 4 tells us this is definitely a branched off series. We can gladly affirm that the break away in nomenclature also came with a corresponding paradigm shift in hardware specs,…

After searching and searching, one of my shortlisted devices was Infinix Mobility’s Zero 3. It ticked all the right boxes. Well, almost. It has one unforgivable trait – Infinix Mobility’s lack of taste in the design department. Apart from being all tepid plastic, I just won’t be caught dead carrying about a phone…
