It such a good thing that Infinix made a phone with the Notch display because i’ll say so many Africans have been waiting to get their hands on a cheap smartphone with a notch display.
The Infinix Hot S3X is sold for 62,000 thousand Naira.
The device features a 6.2-inch HD+ Amoled capacitive touch-screen display size with it’s screen stretching up to 80% screen to body ratio giving it a nice look. Having a resolution of 720 x 1500 pixels and a pixel per inch density of 267.
I noticed something about the display: When a user is watching a video, i assume the display is meant/suppose to maintain the rectangular display view in the landscape mode even if u zoom out but rather, it stretches up to the top notch cutting the video which is not cool. Ulefone X, Nokia X6, Umidigi one and some other android smartphones with notch screen display does not have this problem.
It houses a 3GB/4GB LPDDR4x RAM to support the chipset i.e enhances smooth navigation between opened apps, surfing the internet without thinking for a moment like “OMG what’s this with your face up” and launching of heavy apps and playing high games.
It is further equipped with a 32GB/64GB internal storage (ROM) .
On the rear side of the phone, we have a dual 13MP + 2MP camera with a wide angle f/2.0 aperture with LED flashlight and a bokeh effect which is great for photos.
The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo but not stock i.e it has a customised user interface XOS which is fast, light, stable and power saving. The XOS is fully optimized to integrate the notch design for a perfect screen outlook.
It’s true that the device charges faster(Quick charge technology [2A])but i have a problem with the power adapter, it doesn’t charge fast.The phone does not come with a fast charger which is disappointing.
