Infinix Hot 3 Unboxing and First Impressions


The Infinix Hot 3 is finally available for orders on Kilimall and I have the device for you to check out before ordering it. If you are not acquainted to Infinix phones then the Infinix Hot series are the cheapest and have some good features especially for first time smartphone buyers. It all started with the Infinix Hot, the Hot 2 and now the Hot 3. Each device totally different from the other but prices are very good. Tech-ish says that the Hot 3 is the best priced android smartphone in the market. I agree.


For only Ksh7899 (or 79USD) you get a 5.5 inch screen. There are very few manufacturers who can boast of the same. An LG phone of the same price, the L20 has a 3.0 inch screen plus less storage and a crappy 480i camera. More specs after the:-

First Impressions

The first thing I noticed about the Infinix Hot 3 is that it is very light (in weight). Its lighter than the Infinix Hot 2 and the Infinix Hot. And Yes I still have those devices with me. Strangely enough all the USB ports on the Infinix Hot series are at the top and not the bottom.

There is a new app called user manual too, this proves that the target market is first time users. It is a great gadget for high school students now that schools have closed for the April Holiday.

The default music app is by google and I wonder if it will change if I update the software like it changed on the Zero 3.  But that is for the full review coming soon.
