The Hot 9 Play 32 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
This Hot 9 Play 32 GB is one of the biggest models of the moment.Not necessarily practical to handle with its 6.82 inches when you have to make a phone call.
A disadvantage that turns into an advantage for surfing the net.Reading will be easier on this type of device.You see the details clearly on the screen.A real pleasure.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone has GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This model allows you to manage several operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this Hot 9 Play 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
For the battery, this phone includes one of the most powerful with 6000 mAH and therefore a better autonomy.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
In conclusion on battery charging, Infinix has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
The right model for multimedia use?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
On the multimedia side, the Hot 9 Play 32 GB is well done.He’s on par with the best competitors.A screen that allows you to view videos without too much difficulty.It will be a nice tool to see small videos on social networks.A result obtained thanks to a sufficient screen resolution of 720 x 1640.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
For the audio part, Infinix wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Infinix phone, for video games?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
What came out of our tests is that the Hot 9 Play 32 GB is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) – 32/2GB processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.You will only have 32 GB for your videos and music.And because Infinix predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Games involve intense use of the battery.Here you have the best in the market.It has a 6000 mAh battery.With a nice design, it’s a smartphone that you like to hold in your hands.
For the latest generation of applications, this also requires performance.The reading comfort of this model is good.This is a standard model with a display density of 263* pixels and an 6.82-inch screen.All documents are thus displayed clearly.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Infinix is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Infinix.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Hot 9 Play 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 13 Mp which gives a low quality result.The components of the device allow quality selfies.This will allow you to retouch your photos.You will be able to see at which point each point in the image is correctly captured.This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
