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.

Design

The Hot 5 Lite has no fingerprint scanner, its back cover has a crystal-like pattern that gives the smartphone more fanciful look while also improving phone handling.

Available colors of the device includes; Fine Gold, San-stone Black, White, Lemon and Red colors. 

One may not be wrong stating there is nothing extraordinary about the looks of the Infinix Hot 5 Lite. It’s just there, sort of. But a textured rear looks good and should make the device less slippery.

Display

Infinix Hot 5 Lite crams a 5.5 inches screen with HD resolution. It’s display pixel counts at 720 by 1280 pixel leaving it with 264 PPI (Pixels Per-square Inch).

There’s no protective glass on the device so a screen guard will come in handy. You may expect decent wide angle viewing here since the Infinix Hot 5 Lite uses an IPS panel.

Performance

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.

At the helm is a quad-core cortex processor and a Mediatek MT6580 chipset, the processor clocks at 1.3 GHz. Support is provided by an on-board 1GB RAM.

With such processor, the Hot 5 Lite will deliver seamless performance for ‘normal’ usage.

Camera

Nothing changes from the affordable Hot 5 in the camera department. There is an 8 megapixel shooter on the rear and a 5 megapixel snapper on the front. Both promise to serve decent quality, especially with their support for LED flash.

Battery Capacity and Sensors

This beast is said to offer up to 35 hours of talk time! Plus, there is fast charge technology that gives you hours of talk time in just 5 minutes of charging.

But the fingerprint scanner on the rear of the Hot 5 and most of the other Infinix Phones is missing here.
