Unboxing and Hands On with the Infinix Hot 2 X510

Hello Mobilistas!! Are you excited as I am today? Google in collaboration with Infinix launched the Android One project in Nigeria today. This came in the form of a successor to the very popular Infinix Hot device – The Infinix Hot 2. The device found it’s way to our hands and I couldn’t wait to share this Unboxing and Hands on review. Straight to business.
Infinix Hot 2 Front
Whats in the Pack?
The packaging here is not so spectacular – Just a medium sized box. Opening it you see the phone, and underneath that is two boxes. The first containing the USB wall charger, and the second containing booklets, the battery, earphones and USB cable, built to prevent unnecessary twisting.

Design and First look
Infinix Hot 2 Sides
In terms of design, the Infinix Hot 2 shares lots of parts with the Infinix Zero series. From a distance, you’ll mistake it for the later. The back camera and flash are positioned similarly. Same with the Power button and volume rockers. The difference here is that the Infinix Hot 2 isn’t as slim as the Infinix Zero, and the back cover is removable.

Finally..
This phone has glass protection front and back (can’t ascertain if it’s Gorilla Glass or not). At the back are 2 Micro-SIM slots and a memory card slot. Remember this device runs the latest Android Lollipop 5.1.1 with promised update to Android M. So much to get excited about!! You can see the full spec sheet HERE.

    Fingers crossed. Does it have onscreen capacitive keys? Besides, the design doesn’t even tickle me; I hope the performance covers the lapse in the design.

    The design looks rather bland and pedestrian and kinda reminds me of my now retired Gionee M2.

      LOL @ Ayo. But then, the Hot 2 is in the same price range as your retired M2; isn’t it?

      Does your ”Retired” Gionee M2 need an ‘old Peoples’ home, i can take care of it

    Price point is decent enough but the 2,200 maH battery is just disappointing really. They had a good chance to do better than its popular predecessor (3,000 maH someone?). Unless there’s some secret AndroidOne gimmick to reduce app juicing….Altogether, nice try at a follow-up! Looking forward to playing with (scratch that…) owning One.

    I dont think battery size matters as much as how phone will last through each charge. Thats what we should focus on

      Joel,

      The Hot 2 runs stock Android Lollipop, not Infinix’s own modified version. The UI is exactly the same as obtains on the Motorola Nexus 6. I have added an extra photo showing the home screen.

    Took delivery of my own yesterday, am having issues with the battery. Twas 16% and i switched it off to charge and surprising it was 72% when i connected my it to a power source. Thinking of callibrating the battery or better still will let this run the course since its the second battery cycle.

      You should have left it to charge fully. All the same charge till 100% then use it till about 5%, then switch off and charge full again for optimum performance

    I bought infinix hot 2 androidone, during setup, I mistakenly use guest account. since then, the phone doesn’t allow me access the launcher. when boot, it quickly lock the screen blinking red light only. trying to change the user account at the notification bar yielded no results. I tried hardreset by hold down the power and vol up, but it doesn’t display the factory setup, when I release the buttons after several attempts, it boot to normal booting and display blank or locked screen. please advice me on what to do.

      You’re not doing it well sir. While the phone is switched off, hold down volume up and power buttons, it will boot to recovery mode. From there, you can wipe the phone to start afresh
