Just like the HOT 2, the HOT 3 camera has a 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera. I know you’ll think that not much has changed since both mobile phones feature the same camera pixels.

You will be surprised that the camera shoots better and amazing pictures.

The camera on the back uses the OV8865 sensor which boasts of a much-improved camera efficiency and higher pixel resolution. Other camera features that were absent from the HOT 2 like; the HDR is incorporated as well. This means you get more crisp and beautiful photos anytime of the day.

While the front camera features even better wide angle selfies with 2 MP camera.

Overall, the cameras have impressed on all grounds which includes, voice/gesture recognition, smile and touch capture features.

However, if you are looking for a classic camera phone, you should check out either; HOTS, Infinix Hot 4 or the Infinix Note 3.


The hot 3 battery life is clocked at 3000 mAh. If you ask me, the battery capacity is quite generous, although not the best infinix battery you will find, it provides more battery storage compared to other phones in its category.

The battery offers more use while it conserves power, thanks to the power efficiency of this Smartphone, you can enjoy many hours browsing the internet, playing music, watching videos and so much more.

When the battery percentage falls below 15%, the power saving mode is automatically turned on. This means you get more hours of use before the phone shuts down.

Finally, the only downside to the battery is that it has an average storage. However, it is a good choice for average Smartphone users. Check out some cheap Tecno phones.


The Hot 3 runs the Android 5.1 (Lollipop). Thanks to infinix mobility, you can upgrade to the latest android version 6.0 (marshmallow). Of course, you’ll also get the most recent upgrades to keep your phone updated.

As I have said earlier, the infinix hot 3 comes in 2 version: the Hot 3 Pro features 1GB of RAM, while Hot 3 LTE (X553) use a 2GB RAM.

The 2G RAM cost a little bit than the 1GB RAM. I will advise budget oriented users to go for the 1GB as it’s cheap, while if you have more to spend, you can get the 2GB RAM version and enjoy smooth and ultra fast experience.
