RELEASE DATE

The Hot S3 air was first launched in India in February 2018 and more launching events have held in many more countries.

DESIGN

The device sports a well-crafted plastic covering with curved edges and an iPhone-like look.

The rear camera has been moved to the top left(much like the iPhone 8) while the fingerprint sensor sits southeast of the camera, just at the center.

It also adopts the large screen to body ratio acquired by a cut down on bezels around the screen.

DISPLAY

The phone comes with a 5.65-inch display with a resolution of 1440 X 720 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 285 PPI.

The display isn’t mind-blowing but will serve its purpose. It isn’t as stunning as those in more premium smartphones but it does quite well.

Screen to body ratio is 81% which is quite good, though the side bezels are not as thin as some of the competition.

Either way, the display does a good job when playing games, reading your emails or surfing the internet.

SOFTWARE

The device shipped with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo + XOS Hummingbird V3.0 UI skin which has heralded various improvements and much-needed features in the Ifinix lineup.

This great combination provides more power to the end user.

BATTERY LIFE

Under the hood, the phone boasts a massive 4000mAh Lithium polymer non-removable battery.

This is sought of an overkill for a phone that is camera focused but customers definitely love overkills.

Unfortunately, the Infinix Hot S3 lacks the support for fast charging technology. This is a deal breaker for some, but let’s hope that charging doesn’t take forever.
