Infinix Hot 6 Pro is an extended version of the standard Hot 6. The smart device was released about two months ago, and it currently ranks as one of the nicest Infinix phones in the market. While the phone generally has high-end specs and feature, its display and battery make it quite outstanding.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro Review
Long before the announcement of Hot 6 Pro, the smart had been speculated to be released. However, its release was quite a surprise as the market did not expect the release to be early as it was. The phone is one of the Infinix phones that were launched in July 2018. It furthermore accompanied the launch of the standard Infinix Hot 6.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro is one of those phones that can be taken into consideration, for a person who needs a high-speed internet connection. The phone has support for high-speed networks that fall in the second and third generation of mobile networks. Just like every 4G-supported phone, Hot 6 pro can only use 4G networks when a 4G-supported SIM card is inserted into them.
Hot 6 Pro is a large device, just like many high-end smartphones. Giving an idea of how large this phone is, the phone has a length of 160.43 mm and a breadth of 76.21 mm. While a lot of large phones have the issue of getting a pouch for them, Hot 6 Pro has pouch available for it. However, as large as this smartphone is, the phone is not too thick. The phone has a thickness of 8.60 mm.
Infinix 6 Pro is not just large, the smartphone takes good advantage of its largeness. It features a large 5.99 inches (15.21 cm) display. This display is just 0.01 inches smaller than the 6.00 inches found in other high-end devices. And as it is known, this difference is insignificant. The 5.99 inches display featured by this phone, has a good resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels.
As we all know, the two major mobile chipsets we have are Qualcomm and MediaTek. While some high-end phones use MediaTek chipsets, Hot 6 Pro is championed by a chipset produced by the best smartphone chipset manufacturer, Qualcomm. The chipset that champions Infinix Hot 6’s system, is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset. Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset is composed of four cores which have a common processing speed of 1.50 GHz.
The chipset in Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset works with the help of a 3 GB random access memory. Although, we have high-end smartphones that feature RAMS as large as 6 GB, the RAM featured by Hot 6 Pro, does not put it at disadvantage. The reason behind this is that the current standard for Android high-end devices is 3 GB.
Since Infinix Hot 6 Pro was released in July when Android 8.0 Oreo had already been released, the market expects it to run Oreo, and it meets up to that expectation. The Android 8.0 Oreo operating system is an epic one that brings new capabilities to the Android platform. With this OS, there is a lot more an Android device can do. Apart from featuring new things a user can notice, the OS also features new and cool things that exist behind the scene.
The internal storage used by Infinix Hot 6 Pro, is a flash storage which has a capacity of 32 GB. This flash storage has such a large capacity, to cater for the desire of smartphone users that are storage-space-hungry. With advancements in technology, app sizes have grown massively, as well as media files size. In other words, the 32 GB of storage space will not be a waste. Furthermore, if a user runs out of internal storage space and desires more storage space, an additional 128 GB of storage space can be provided to the smartphone.
As a norm, Infinix Hot 6 Pro comes with two standard cameras, one in the front of the smartphone and another on the rear side of the device. In Hot 6 Pro, the rear camera is powerful than the front camera. Giving details, the rear camera of this device is a 13 MP camera while the front camera of the phone is a 5 MP camera. Both the front camera and rear camera of this phone have the support of LED flash.

With the display almost being the most outstanding thing about Infinix Hot 6 Pro, our discussion will start from there.
The display of the smartphone makes it an ideal smart device for game lovers, as well as people who often use their phones to watch videos. For game lovers, the large display of the phone makes it possible for game players to have a wider view when playing games. With a wider view, the game player not only enjoys their game better, they also have greater chances of succeeding in their games.
Size is not the only important thing about a display. The resolution of the display is also very important. A display that is large but has a low resolution is not so useful as the quality of graphics it will produce, will be poor. However, a large display with a high resolution is very cool because its graphics will be cool. Infinix Hot 6 Pro has a large display and also a high resolution. In other words, the display of this smartphone will produce high-quality graphics.
Nigeria has always been a country where power is an issue. There are very little places in this country that can boast of 24 hours of light in 7 days. Rather than having 24/7 power supply, most places have less than 5 hours a day power supply. In other words, using a smartphone with a powerful battery is very important for an average Nigerian. Infinix knowing this, makes them equip Hot 6 Pro with a powerful battery which is no doubt a very nice thing.
The battery used by this smartphone has a capacity of 4000 mAh. It is furthermore a Li-Ion battery, meaning that it will be worthwhile learning how to retain the power of a Li-Ion battery, for a longer time. Giving a tip, whenever the battery of this smartphone is 10 percent or less, the phone should be turned off until it is charged.
Infinix Hot 6 Pro comes with a technology that charges its battery rapidly. Without this technology, the powerful 4000 mAh battery featured by the smartphone, will take well over 3 hours to be charged. With this technology, only about 2 hours is required to charge the battery from 0 to 100 percent.
CHIPSET and RAM
In the smartphone world, we have companies from places around the world, manufacturing chipsets. In other words, we have many brands of smartphone chipset like Kirin, Qualcomm, Intel and MediaTek. Among these chipset brands, Qualcomm has always ranked as the best in the mobile industry. The success of Qualcomm, in this market, can greatly be attributed to the fact that Qualcomm chipsets are known to be powerful, efficient and quite rugged.
The chipset that champions the hardware Infinix Hot 6 Pro is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset. The chipset is a quad-core chipset, not an octa-core chipset, as some expect from a high-end smartphone. This quad-core chipset is not bad for a high-end smartphone, in this current age. The processors in Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 all have a processing speed of 1.40 GHz. This gives the chipset an overall processing speed of 5.60 GHz (1.40 GHz x 4 cores).
The RAM of Infinix Hot 6 Pro is a RAM designed to take full advantage of the speed of the processors in the chipset of the phone. Had it been this RAM is not a synchronous RAM, the average speed of the cores of this chipset would have been less than 1.40 GHz. The RAM in question has a capacity of about 3 GB (3,145,728 bytes). With a RAM of this capacity, the phone will perform as expected of a high-end smartphone.
The mobile industry ranks as one of those that have seen very great improvement in the past years. In the early years of mobile phones, there exists nothing like mobile operating systems. The introduction of Symbian marked the beginning of smart operating systems in the mobile industry. Over years, mobile phone OS has evolved, and we have mobile OS like Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, etc.
Of all mobile operating systems that have ever existed, the Android operating system ranks as the most successful. The operating has made the mobile industry richer. Had Android not exist, this world will likely have never been developed as it currently is. Interestingly, Infinix Hot 6 Pro runs a version of the Android operating system. The version of Android it runs is the 8.0 version which is also called Android 8.0 Oreo.
Android 8.0 is one of the best Android OS available. Apart from Android 9.0 Pie, Oreo is superior to other versions of the Android operating system. The operating system is a lot smarter and faster. It also comes with new features that make the device very suitable for people who use their phone for things beyond basic smartphone operations.
With the need for fast internet connection becoming greater, Infinix Mobility equipped Hot 6 Pro with the support for 4G networks. With the support for 4G networks, this smartphone can access the internet at speeds up to 30 MB/s. While this might sound as an exaggeration to people who have never used 4G, it is true. To enjoy internet connections as fast as this, all required for a user is to find a place where a 4G network is strong.
Very often, a user will find themselves in places with poor 4G networks, in such situations, they have older technologies to their rescue. Infinix Hot 6 Pro also supports 2G and 3G networks. While the speed of networks of this generation is not up to that of 4G networks, a user can still enjoy internet connections with speed up to 2 MB/s.
