Is Infinix Hot 5 or Hot 5 Lite Worth Calling “My Mobile Cinema”? See Full Review

Not long after the launch of the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro, Inifinx Mobility released another two budget phones; Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite.

Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite were tagged “My Mobile Cinema” because of their amazing speakers alongside the displays.

Both phones are similar both possess a couple of features that differentiate them.

The one you choose depends on your budget and desired specs. Infinix Hot 5 bags 2GB RAM and features a fingerprint scanner while Hot 5 Lite is designed with 1GB RAM without a scanner.


Large Display – Good Body Texture

Infinx hot 5 has a large 5.5-inch display with a resolution set at 1280 x 720 pixels. This is okay to enjoy watching movies and playing high-definition games.

The back is made of plastic with 3D texture. If you expected a metal body, you can’t complain much because of the price range.

You’re at liberty to choose from the various colors available. They all look beautiful with good aesthetics.

“My Mobile Cinema”

Infinix Mobility especially designed the Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite with an enhanced sound system.

They’re both equipped with front dual speakers featuring Dirac 3D stereo technology.

The powerful speaker alongside the large display is why the phones are tagged “My Mobile Cinema”. This is actually the unique selling point of the smartphones.



Big or Small RAM. The Choice is Yours

Both phones have a 16GB internal storage to allow you save your photos, videos, and other files.

Expand the space using an external memory if you need more space.

They, however, differ in the sizes of their RAMs. Hot 5 has 2GB RAM while Hot 5 Lite has 1GB.

No doubt the Hot 5 is faster and more efficient for multitasking and playing HD games. But again, your budget is a factor that determines which one you go for.

Front and Back Cameras with LED Flash

There’s nothing really fancy about the cameras. But I like that the front and back cameras each have an LED flash.

With this, you won’t have to worry about having a bright image in low light, whether selfie, groupie, wefie.


Large Capacity Battery

The two devices boast a 4000mAh battery each. And they possess the quick charge technology. No more waiting for long before your battery attains 100% charge.

A complete charge should power your device for a day or at least, several hours on heavy usage.
