The need for speed
Everybody loves to have the latest when it comes to technology, and in that vein, nothing is more important than “geeking” out your pockets with the latest smartphone.
There are a lot of different options on the smartphone market, even though the two main players in the game are Apple and Samsung. But each one of those options has its drawbacks, and you’ve probably been searching for a fresh option in the smartphone game that can meet all your needs.
Why should you have to shell out the big bucks, when you know next season there’s going to be a fresh apple harvest or a new galaxy discovered? You may want to get your hands one something hot, but you also want a piece of pocket tech that’s going to go the distance, and not leave you behind the crowd.
Solution: Get Hott
The Infinix Hot 5 Lite may be the solution for you.
As the name “Lite” connotes, this phone is the miniature version of the basic Infinix Hot 5 device from Infinix Mobility.
Now hold up. I know what you’re thinking. Corona Lite is the weaker version of Corona Extra, and it’s not going to take me “there.” Miller Lite is the weaker version of Miller Genuine Draft. Coors Lite is the weaker version of Coors. You get the idea. I know, I know…you’re not looking for the Lite version of a smartphone.
But trust me, this phone will take you “there.”
Now, before you get all twisted about how there ain’t no word on the streets about this phone, let me lay the truth on you: the Infinix Hot 5 Lite did NOT release a publicity inducing mixtape prior to droppin’ the album. That’s right; the company just kind of released the phone without a big hoopla.
Excellent Versatility…a Renaissance Man of Phones
But the Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a great “entry level” smartphone that will take care of all your needs, and it’s out there and available in the market.
E-mail, browsing, gaming, pictures, social media, all at a reliable rate with adequate memory and—let’s not forget what phones used to be for—excellent calling capacity…these are a few of my favorite things. And they’re things the Infinix Hot 5 Lite delivers on. It’s like the Renaissance Man of Phones. You know, the type of person that’s good at everything.
Take a quick look at look at the specs, or read on to learn more.
The OS is an Android 7.0 Nougat…for those who like candy
Octa-core 1.3 GHz Cortex
8MP rear camera
5MP front camera
4G LTE is not available
The touch-screen measures 5.5”
Screen Resolution is 720 x 1280 pixels (264 PPI)
1GB of RAM
16GB of storage…it’s not Noah’s Ark but it will hold your animals.
Up to 32 GB of potential external storage
An amazing 4000 milliamp hours of battery life
Well, I think that’s a decent list of features, especially the internal storage, given the typical pricing points of this phone.
So let’s talk about that screen. It’s five and a half inches diagonally across, which is not a bad size, especially when you consider that HD resolution. Without a protective glass shield on this device, you might consider getting a screen guard, or just treading lightly and only walking on padded surfaces in case you drop it.
The pixel count on the display is 720 by 1280, and based on the size of the screen, that comes out to be around 264 PPI (Pixels Per-square Inch), which is well above the standard PPI that’s considered good quality.
The OS is an OG (Original Gangsta)
The captain of your hand held starship enterprise is the quad-core cortex processor and a Mediatek MT6580 chipset. The processor is holding at 1.3 GHz, and supported by by 1GB of RAM. All hands on deck! The performance of this smartphone is traveling at warp five.
When you pull that Infinix Hot 5 Lite out of the box like a happy kid on Christmas morning, you’ll find it moving and grooving to the tune of the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Okay, so 8.0 Oreo is the latest, but nougat is a decent sweet treat as well, and will definitely get the job done. Just remember to brush your teeth to avoid cavities.
Rumors are going around that the XOS component of the operating system is providing a more “interactive” experience for uses, with innovations such as customizable themes, multiple accounts, and freezing capacity, while also putting your phone on a power diet to conserve those battery leftovers from the party last night.
Storage Space allows for a LOT of Junk in that Trunk
I must be seeing double, because the Infinix Hot 5 Lite has dual SIM features (micro SIM) with dual standby and an internal storage space of 16GB, which can be expanded with an SD card up to double that, 32 GB.
That’s a whole lot of cranial space for photos, games, videos, e-books, and more. You could practically take this thing with you to a deserted island and enjoy every episode of your favorite shows without needing to stream them from the nearest internet connection, which could be miles and miles away.
Although, eventually in that situation, your Infinix sidekick might run out of battery, and then it would only be useful for cracking open coconuts or sending reflections out to sea in the hopes of being rescued by a passing ship. But I digress.
Lights, Camera, Action
For all you shutterbugs out there, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite boasts an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and a 5 megapixels camera in the front, so what they’ve been saying about “business in the front and party at the back” does not just apply to mullets.
Also, the camera comes with that LED flash, so you can conserve energy while snapping photos of the crew up in the club (clubs are usually dimly lit place, you know?). And moreover, that LED light is on both sides of the game, so when you want to take a selfie at the bar, you’re good there too.
Speaking of partying all night, the Hot 5 Lite carries an impressive 4000 mAh battery, and the battery is said to provide up to 24 to 35 hours of talk-time, and up to 837 hours of standby time. That’s practically 34 days, boo.
On the Real
There’s no fingerprint scanner, so that could be a downside if you prefer that to entering passwords. And unfortunately, similar to the Infinix Hot 5, the Hot 5 Lite did not come with a 4G network option which may discourage some of you from getting it, but don’t fear, because it has plenty of other features to make up for that.
One last piece of information…the back cover has a crystal-like pattern that makes it easy to handle, and looks bossy too. Available colors include: fine gold, sandstone black, white, lemon and red. I’m not sure who came up with these names, but apparently they thought white and red needed no introduction.
So in conclusion, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a great way to step into a new smartphone game this year. It’s all around very versatile, and has some great operating features. Thanks for letting me drop some smartphone knowledge on you today. Get your summer hot with the Infinix Hot 5 Lite!
