Infinix has recently launched two new smartphones in the market in the sub-Rs. 10,000 segment- Smart 3 Plus and the Infinix S4. The Smart 3 Plus is one of the few phones having triple camera setup at the price point and S4 comes with its incredible design. Infinix has launched its new smartphone in this segment- Infinix Hot 7 pro.
This device comes with 6 gigs of RAM, Android Pie, MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset, the dual camera setup on both rear and front panel, and 4,000mAh high-capacity battery. But, is it a worthy option to buy at Rs.10, 000 price tag?
Let’s check it out in the Infinix Hot 7 Pro review below:
Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro has nothing new to offer when it comes to design. It packs a simple design coming at Rs. 9,999. On the front, you get a 6.19-inch HD+ display with a traditional notch on the top. The brand has not gone for any water drop notch or punch-0hole design but it can be understood.
Infinix has still managed to embed dual selfie camera on the notch with a selfie flash. The earpiece is between the display and the frame. The bezels are pretty thin but the device has a thick chin at the bottom. You can get a great discount on branded smartphone online using Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card.
On the back, you see a metal panel which gives it a solid and premium kind of touch. There is a dual-camera setup along with a single-LED flash on the back. Also, you get to see a fingerprint sensor on the back panel which is easy to reach and is responsive. The device is available in three color variants: Midnight Black, Aqua Blue, and Mocha Brown. The round edges and sides make it very good looking and gives a comfortable feel in hands.
On the right side, you get to see the power and volume buttons while the SIM tray is on the left. The power button gets a textured design and it becomes easy to distinguish from the volume rockers. On the bottom, you get to see a Micro-USB port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack and the loudspeaker grille.
Under the hood, the Infinix Hot 7 Pro has an Helio P22 SoC which is not what we expect from the device coming at this price. Although, this chipset is coupled with 6 gigs of RAM and has 64GB of internal storage which can be further expanded. It is a disappointing add-on by Infinix when it comes to the chipset.
The device is nothing close to smooth in terms of loading apps and switching apps. The fingerprint sensor behind works fine and so does the face recognition feature. On the AnTuTu, this device scored 79,283 points and managed 819 and 3,864 in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro runs Android 9 Pie coupled with XOS 5 custom skin.

Cameras and Battery Life
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro packs a 13-megapixel primary sensor (f/1.8 aperture) and a 2-megapixel depth sensor (f/2.0 aperture) on the back. On the front, there are dual cameras including a 13MP and 2MP sensors. The photos coming out of the camera were not even par.
On the day, they were overexposed and in the night, full of grain. Although macros from this device come decent and good. The edge detection capabilities are decent too- nice work in portrait mode. Talking about selfies, they come out decent on the day but overexposed.
Talking about the battery life, the Infinix Hot 7 Pro packs in a 4000mAh battery. This battery can easily keep you entertained for one and a half-day. Although, this device managed to run for 15 hours on the HD video loop test. Seeing this, you can easily get one day of tasking and multi-tasking on a single charge. In this technological world where the more chances of the job offer, you can apply for different kind of jobs like Software Engineer jobs.
Honestly, the Infinix Hot 7 Pro is not worth Rs. 10,000. It is surely a device which costs less than that. It surely has 6 gigs of massive RAM but pairing it with Helio P22 SoC makes no sense. The apps take time to load and multitasking is neither too fast.
The cameras are below par which might need bit tweaks to improve. It is just a decent device with nothing out of the box and unique to offer, In this price range, one can go for many other options including the Realme 3, Redmi Note 7, or the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2.
