A camera and software are standard for the models of this price range. The smartphone runs on the latest Android, guarantees good quality of photos in well-lit environment, crisp image and smooth running while watching video content, and fair sound quality in headphones.
If you are curious about the features differentiating this model from its siblings, Hot 6 and Hot 6 Pro, don’t get too excited. Asides from a notch, there is hardly anything other in terms of design or features that demonstrates the striking difference.
Infinix Hot 6X is a perfect option for users looking for an ordinary smartphone with the basic functions and simple design. The fans of technologies and innovations will probably find it too common if not boring, but actually, it was created for a different audience and is certainly worth considering.
