The back of the pack, as usual, features quick specification of the smartphone. While the lower part of that region, features the usual label with information like IMEI, color etc.

Infinix believes that the future is now and I’d like to ask you, is the future really now? Personally, i like to think so.

Quick Hands-On Review Of The Infinix Hot 4 x557 Phone:

Now to the quick hands on review and first impression, the infinix HOT 4 features a 4000mAh battery and as such, it is expected of the device to feel kinda bulky. It actually does, but not so much.

The smartphone features same screen size as the Camon C9 (5.5inch). However, the camon c9 feels less weighty. Of course, the camon c9 features a lesser battery compared to the hot 4.

The back pack of the phone is actually plastic. And as i stated earlier in my comparison video, the design on the back pack of the hot 4 is very similar to that on the HOT x507 (the first infinix hot smartphone). However, infinix terms this as 3D texture.

Side Attractions

Looking at the top of the smartphone, you’d find the speaker, the 5 megapixels camera, the front flash as well as the proximity sensor.

Opening up the back pack:

Opening up the back pack, you find the 4000mAh battery which is actually non-removable. The placement and design looks very similar to what we have on the Camon C9.

The phone supports dual sim and what’s more? It supports 4G LTE network mode. Do bear in mind that both sim slots are actually micro SIMs slot.

At first glance, i couldn’t realize the MicroSD card slot until a few more seconds when i had to glance through all of the slots and instructions embedded in the back pack in usain bolt style.

Turning On the Infinix Hot 4 x557:

Turning on the smartphone and launching to the setup screen didn’t take too long. I honestly didn’t monitor the timing but it really wasn’t long compared to when you just flashed in a new ROM on a smartphone.

Of course, the first message you’d see is the welcome message and what does that mean? It’s okay for me to pull off the protective nylon stickers both on the screen and on the back camera.

Setting up the smartphone was a breeze.

And now……….to the fingerprint thingy. I mean, i really can’t wait to compare the fingerprint unlocking speed with my current smartphones.
