Infinix Hot 12 Review
As mentioned earlier in this post, the Infinix Hot 12 is the successor of the Hot 11. This device comes with a better CPU as well as a wider display. One of the things that we like the most about this device is that it runs on Android 12, the latest Android version. In this section, we will put the Infinix Hot 12 under the spotlight to see whether it is worth investing in or not.
Design and display
It is no secret that Infinix puts a lot of work into its designs. This is why the designs of its smartphones are versatile and fun. Despite having really great designs, it is quite obvious that the company is not showing any signs of changing its camera module. The camera module in the Infinix Hot 12 is quite similar to what you have in the Hot 11 and Hot 12i.
When you look beyond this, you will be swayed by the impressive glass-like sleek design of this device. In addition to this, you can purchase this smartphone in four different color shades. They include legend white, lucky green, origin blue, and racing black. The Infinix Hot 12 also comes in a very slim body which is quite outstanding considering the large battery that accompanies the device.
One of the things that we love the most about the Infinix Hot 12 is the build quality. Despite being made of plastic, this device is quite strong and durable. The display is worth mentioning despite the 6.82-inch IPS LCD panel not being much to write home about. When you consider that the display is not covered with corning gorilla glass, then you might be worried. However, you can still protect the screen with a durable, high-quality screen guard.
Memory and performance
Without mincing words, the hardware of the Infinix Hot 12 is not so much of a wonder. However, this device is designed to provide high performance. It is equipped with a 12nm Mediatek Helio G85 chipset. This is not so bad for a mid-range device designed for daily use. When you compare it to other mid-range smartphones in the same category, you will agree that it is worth investing in.
This device comes in three variants differentiated by internal memory and RAM support. With the amount of RAM allocated to each device and the memory space that they feature, you will likely have trouble with the daily usage of this device. The internal storage is enough to store apps and data from an array of sources. Infinix also made provision for a dedicated SD card in case you need additional memory.
We can hardly discuss the quality of a smartphone without mentioning its camera. The Infinix Hot 12 comes with an average primary lens that features a mere 13MP. However, it makes up for this with the performance of the camera in well-lit environments. Don’t try using this camera in dark areas as you will get very poor results.
The selfie camera only features a 2MP lens. When you compare this to the counterparts of this device, it is quite poor. If you are not such a fan of cameras, then you can overlook this. However, if you love to shoot photos and videos, then the Infinix Hot 12 is not worth your investment.
