Tech Lass's Verdict:

The camera and battery capacity of the Infinix Hot 3 have been improved as well as its design which in turn gives it its premium look and feel. At the price the Hot 3 is being offered and the specs it features, i'll say the Infinix Hot 3 has been carefully crafted with great engineering and is a good device for an average smartphone user.

Would I buy this device?

Well, after using the Infinix hot that has lived up to its name for being "HOT", i don't think i can buy the Hot 3. If the Hot was HOT and the hot 2 was HOTTER then i suppose the hot 3 will be the HOTTEST. Make sure you install an air condition on this device if you buy one. lol. Na, it's a good device, you just go ahead and buy it. Also buy a pouch to go with it, you'll thank me later.
