Infinix Hot S3X - Specification, Pros and Cons

Infinix Hot S3X is the latest addition to the Infinix Hot series. Surprisingly, it is the first Infinix device to feature the notch trend and adopted a dual back camera. This is a device for those that love smartphones with large or big displays because it is very sizeable at hand.

Just as expected, Infinix had put in the effort to ensure that this device meets the users need and has packed it with quality features, beautiful design, and good performance. With all the cool feature, the device is expected to be more expensive.

Infinix Hot S3X - Design and Display

The trend for sleek design has been available for long and this Hot S3X has not been left behind. Though, the device design brings back the remembrance of the Infinx S2 because of the curved four edges. The device also comes in different attractive colors that allow you to make a choice of any color that pleases you.


The device has an amazing design with shiny attractive colors available in gray, black and blue colors. It also features a nice notch and expanding the screen size, with a smooth metal print surface and amazing curves at the corners that make the Hot S3X look great at the handheld.

Also, at the back of the Hot S3X is a fingerprint sensor and toward the corner edge, is a dual camera and LED flashlight underneath.

Performance, Storage and Camera

The Hot S3X is powered with a Snapdragon processor, the same processor used in other high-class smartphones like Samsung and others, coupled with a 1.4GHz CPU, you won't experience any nagging or hanging with this device.

You can multitask comfortably without having worries. The 3GB/4GB Ram also makes it possible to run multiple apps at once without any issues, you can stream video online, chat, and open other pages without any nagging.

Running the on Infinix's own XOS Hummingbird based on Android™ 8.1 is another assurance of a better performance.

As for the Storage, the Hot S3X again comes in two variate - one has a 32GB inbuilt and the other has a 64GB inbuilt. That is enough storage already to carry all your pictures, videos and other applications need to make the smartphone fun to use.

But, here is the good news, Infinix has also made it possible to be able to add external MicroSD card in case you run out of storage. The device can carry as high as 128GB, so you have nothing to worry about storage anymore.

As for the Camera. Formally, I used to think that this is girls thing but now I see lots of guy taking selfies.


If you are the kind that enjoys taking pictures this is a nice smartphone for you. The Infinix Hot S3X features a 16MP ultra sensor selfie camera with Artificial Intelligence Technology that enables the device to detect your gender and facial expression.

While at the back is a dual 13MP and 2MP back camera for portrait mode that can fully capture the depth of your surrounding. The 2MP focus only on the distance between you and the camera to give you a balanced camera.

Infinix Hot S3X - Battery

I understand how important this one is for most persons, especially to those that hardly gets light. But, you don't have much to worry.

The Hot S3X is packed with a 4000mAh battery to give you enough time to enjoy the device. Coupled with a 2A fast charge that provides a rapid recharge when the device is down. The device promise to give a 2days usage when fully charged but this has not been put to test yet.

However, 4000mAh is good enough to provide a full day usage.

Other Features

Some other cool features that come with this device includes a quality Security to safeguard your private files. The device has a Fingerprint and Face lock feature that allows you to protect your device at all cost without anyone breaking into it.

It also supports a 4G LTE that give you a super fast internet browsing, an OTG that supports smartphone to smartphone connection and sharing of files and folders. GPS Navigation that allows you to know and find places as long as you are on earth and many other cool and fun features.

Infinix Hot S3X - Pros

  • A superfast performance with no nagging or hanging
  • You can multitask comfortably without any issues
  • A fast internet browsing and streaming powered by the 4G LTE
  • Lots of storage space which can still be expandable
  • Top security with a face lock
  • Long lasting battery capacity with fast charging support.

Infinix Hot S3X - Cons

  • Not necessary a con, but I would wish the battery was up to 5000mAh
Finally, the device is currently in the market for sales at a price within 55,000 Naira to 72,000 Naira, which I would agree that it is not expensive compared to the features of the device. Please use the comment box if you have any question.
