Infinix Hot 5 Lite smartphone was released in August 2017. The touchscreen smartphone is a dual SIM phone with a plastic design measuring 154.8 x 77.7 x 8.35 mm and weighs 168grams.
It is easy to tell that the Infinix Hot 5 Lite is the stripped down version of the Infinix Hot 5, as indicated by the ‘Lite’ moniker. Infinix Hot 5 Lite shares most of the features of its sibling, but loses the fingerprint scanner and comes with lower RAM.
Android 7.0 Nougat is pre-installed out of the box on the Infinix Hot 5 Lite. The Interface is customized with XOS – the company’s custom OS. XOS is said to provide more interactive experience with innovative features such as custom themes, Multi Account, and Freezer while also decreasing power consumption.
The Infinix Hot 5 Lite is available in various colors which are Fine Gold, San-stone Black, White, Lemon and Red while there is 1 available model Infinix Hot 5 Lite which is the 16GB model.
If you feel the Hot 5 Lite didn’t meet your specifications, first consider it’s senior counterpart: Infinix Hot 5, it has more to offer. But if you just want to look elsewhere, check out the Infinix Smart, it has some good features to go with its low price tag.
Tecno Spark devices are also some good alternatives, same as the Infinix Hot 4 Pro LTE. For more premium and budget-friendly phones, see the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro.
