The Hot 5 is a successor to the Hot 4, and the predecessor has a Lite variant which is now the case of the Hot 5.

At first glance, a tagged name 'Lite' of an Infinix device gives it away as a lower variant since every Infinix Lite model of a device has lower specs compared to its base model.

    Display and Build

    The Infinix Hot 5 Lite features a 5.5 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and pixel density of 267PPI.

    Any difference to the Hot 5's screen?

    No there isn't.

    In comparison to its higher variant's screen, you get the same colour reproduction and wide viewing angle that are both great for watching videos and playing graphic intensive games.

    The screen size at 5.5 is moderate, but may look like a big chunk when inserted into a pocket. (This is where you have to be careful of area boys😎).

    For its build, the device is made of plastic and has a textured back. It has a dimension of 154.8 x 77.7 x 8.35mm and weight of 168g.

    Featuring the same build material and body dimension as that of the Hot 5, it makes for a device that is very light to be operated/handled for hours, and carried about without feeling a huge weight.

    Comparing this build to that of the Hot 4 Lite, this device is lighter and slimmer than the latter at 175g heavy and 8.8mm thin.

    Disappointingly, there is no fingerprint sensor on the Lite variant of the Hot 5 as there isn't on the Lite variant of the Hot 4.

    This means that users will have to make do of passwords, pins, patterns or third party apps to secure the phone.

    You didn't think you could get away with a device with a fingerprint sensor at a lesser price did you?


    Hardware and Software

    The Infinix Hot 5 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor with a processing speed of 1.3GHz.

    It has 1GB of RAM, which is half the size of that of the Hot 5.

    This means that the level of multitasking will be less where lags and hangs may be experienced occasionally due to a large number of apps being temporarily stored in a smaller RAM.

    It gets better or worse.

    Some apps like Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and even Chrome pages already loaded into the RAM may have to be reloaded each time access is needed.

    Looking on the bright side😒,

    The Hot 5 Lite comes with the same 16GB Inbuilt storage of the Hot 5, and this storage can be expanded using microSD card upto 32GB.

    The device also runs on Infinix’s customized user interface XOS 2.2 on top Android 7.0 Nougat. According to Infinix Mobility, this user interface is user friendly, can reduce power consumption, and freeze less frequently used apps temporarily.  


    The Hot 5 Lite also features an 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. 

    Both cameras have an LED flash light that offers enough brightness to objects being captured in dark places. This makes for clear and bright images being captured in low light conditions.

    These camera specs are the same as that of the Hot 5 and the Lite variant of the Hot 4.

    Battery and Connectivity

    The Infinix Hot 5 Lite battery capacity is 4,000mAh. This capacity is the same as that of the Hot 5, and is large enough to provide a 2 day's use on moderate usage. 

    According to Infinix Mobility, It can support talk time upto 35 hours on 2G network and 24 hours on 3G network, and also a standby time of 837 hours. 

    There is also a fast charging support that ensures the device is fully charged within a few minutes.

    The Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a dual SIM smartphone that supports the use of two micro SIMs.

    As it is the case of the Hot 5, this device does not also have 4G connectivity support. Instead, It only has 2G and 3G support.  

    Other connectivity options of the Hot 5 Lite Include Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, OTG, and USB.

    Its sensors include gravity, ambient light, proximity and e-compass sensors.
