Design and Display
The Infinix Hot S4 has the modern look of your average smartphone as it has slim bezels surrounding the screen and end in a more massive chin. There is a notch that is in the shape of a tear-drop, this houses the selfie camera. At the back, you can see the way in which the triple-rear camera is setup horizontally with the LED flash just lurking a little bit below the trio cameras.
Interestingly, the back of the Infinix Hot S4 is made of glass but that does not stop it from housing a fully-functional fingerprint scanner. In overall term, the Infinix Hot S4 is designed with a glossy glass-like metal for elegance, with a fine finishing cut that gives it an overall sparkling outlook design.
The Hot S4 boasts of a 6.26 IPS LCD touchscreen and 720 x 1520 pixels resolution. You don’t have to worry much about screen protection because a Dual 2.5D curved glass got you covered.
Camera and Battery
Who ever taught that the Infinix Hot S4 would have as many as four cameras, not everyone really. At the back, there is a triple-camera setup while the front has only one. The triple-camera consists of a 13MP main camera has F/2.0 aperture which is good for taking photos in low light conditions, the 8MP secondary sensor and the 2MP third sensor has F/2.0 wide angle lens. Below the vertically aligned cameras is a Quad-LED flash.
Moving things to the front, you have a well-placed 32MP selfie camera that should ensure you take nice selfie photos with friends and family members.
In this part of the world, power always plays a major role in determining whether a device is good or not. Just as some of its conjugates, the Infinix Hot S4 has a moderate 4000mAh battery with fast charging technology, to ensure that it spends less time to charge and more time for use.
