Infinix Hot 10s review

When looking for a budget smartphone, you should consider the Infinix brand. For several years, it has been successfully launching models that are extremely competitive - they have a huge screen, a large battery and a triple camera.

If you are curious to find out all the details before reading the full review, visit the page for Infinix Hot 10s Specs, where you will find even the smallest detail about the phone.


Looking at the dimensions of the smartphone, you will find that it is a large device. It weighs 207 grams and is 9.2 mm thick. Available in four popular colors - black, salad, navy blue and purple.

The front panel of the Infinix Hot 10s has relatively small frames, so the display occupies over 83% of it. The front camera is not in a slot, but is positioned in the corner. For maximum protection, the panel is covered with a whole piece of tempered glass.

Turning the phone over, you will notice a back panel made of smooth plastic. To keep its appearance intact, we recommend that you immediately buy the Infinix Hot 10s protective case.


One of the reasons to choose this model of Infinix is ​​its large display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The IPS matrix has a diagonal of 6.82 inches and a resolution of 1640 x 720 pixels. The pixel density per inch is low - only 263, which suggests that the image will not be the clearest and most detailed. The aspect ratio of the Infinix Hot 10s screen is 20.5: 9 - perfect for interacting with different types of content.


Under the beautiful vision of the smartphone lies the hardware platform MediaTek Helio G85. It consists of 8 core calculators - two ARM Cortex-A75 clocked at 2.0 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 clocked at 1.8 GHz. ARM Mali-G52 2EEMC2 is responsible for the graphics.

Positioned as a budget gaming phone, the Infinix Hot 10s fully lives up to expectations. It will not cope with the most resource-intensive games on the market, but with a medium graphics setting it can offer a stable picture and a smooth process.

The device is available in several modifications - 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. Infinix has provided the ability to expand storage, so even if you opt for a model with less memory, you can subsequently adjust the indicator.

The factory Infinix Hot 10s comes with Android 11 operating system and XOS 7.6 interface.


Infinix Hot 10s has a triple rear camera. The main module is 48-megapixel with an aperture of f / 1.8 and phase autofocus. It is complemented by a depth sensor with which you will take photos and videos with a bokeh effect. The third camera is 8-megapixel and uses AI algorithms. The manufacturer has not provided optical stabilization, but for a budget device this is understandable.

Despite the Quad Bayer technology, which allows the use of a hybrid approximation, the smartphone has only a default focal length. In short, with the rear camera of the Infinix Hot 10s you can take quality photos in daylight. Standard modes and filters are available to help you with your photography skills. When you take macro shots, at times you may notice that the colors cool slightly. This is within normal limits.

As for the front camera, the portrait mode is realized atypically. It is possible to shoot with the use of the built-in "boutique" and with an artificial bokeh effect. However, you cannot combine them.

With Infinix Hot 10s in hand you can shoot video with a maximum resolution of 2K - 2560 x 1440 pixels at 30 frames per second. You have digital stabilization that only works at maximum Full HD resolution. Additional modes allow you to create videos with artificial bokeh and beauty effects.

Autonomous work

Infinix Hot 10s is equipped with a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. Given the HD resolution of the screen and the unpretentious hardware platform, you can count on excellent battery life. You will only need to recharge the device twice a day if you start playing games continuously and activate the 90 Hz mode. Under normal load, you can rely on a day or two before reaching for the charger.


Infinix Hot 10s is another curious creation of the brand. It is a device with large dimensions, excellent battery life and basic gaming potential. The satisfactorily large screen creates conditions for convenient interaction with various content.


  • Large screen with 90 Hz refresh rate support
  • Poor image quality with the rear camera
  • Excellent autonomous operation
  • Front camera with flash and 2K video recording capability
  • Conveniently located and fast fingerprint scanner
  • Separate memory card slot


  • Dimensions
  • The screen could have more brightness and contrast
  • Slippery body
  • No support for fast charging technology
