Infinix HOT 5 Unboxing + Quick Hands-On Review

Infinix recently launched the successor to the HOT 4 and the HOT 4 Lite – the Infinix HOT 5 and the HOT 5 lite.

I got a review unit of the Infinix HOT 5 and as usual, would love to share an unboxing with you alongside my first impressions of the device.

Infinix HOT 5 Unboxing

So this is what the infinix HOT 5 box look like. It’s in more of orange color compared to the infinix HOT 4 launched last year with a yellow colored box.

At the top right side of the box, it states Free Upgrade to latest android version 1 time. So my guess is, the device will be getting the Android OREO update when it becomes globally available.

At the back of the box is a quick specification of the device. Here, it states the following specifications:

  • Dirac 3D stereo surrounding
  • 4000mAh battery
  • 16GB internal storage with 2GB RAM
  • 5.5inch HD IPS display
  • Fingerprint reader on board
  • Quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.3GHz
  • 8 Megapixels back camera accompanied by 5 Megapixels front facing shooter
  • Runs Android 7.0 Nougat customized with XOS.

Having cleared that out, let’s go ahead and unbox the smartphone.

Unboxing The Infinix HOT 5 Pack

I created a video which typically entails everything you are going to be reading here. I mean, the infinix hot 4 unboxing and first impressions of the smartphone. In the video, you’d get to see more details at the device and what-not.

Opening the box, the first thing that graces your eyes, is the infinix HOT 5 phone itself.

At the front of the device, you can very much notice the dual speakers. This is exactly the same as seen on the infinix smart.

This is officially the first green designed smartphone i am unboxing on this blog. The texture feels really nice and gives room for a better grip.

Let’s take the phone away for a minute. We’d return back to it in a bit.

Going deeper into the pack, the next item you should find is the customer service card. Up next, is the screen protector and no, it isn’t glass. Next, is the small leaflet stating all the items in the pack.

Next is the user guide, thereafter is the charger brick, the earphone, a USB cable and a ring holder. The ring holder personally, is a first. I think it comes packed with the Infinix NOTE 4 Pro. I stand corrected though.

Back to the phone, first, let’s pill off the sticker.

On the front as earlier mentioned, you get to find the dual front facing speaker. Not different from what we have on the infinix smart which actually, is the first infinix smartphone to feature dual stereo speakers.

At the top, you’d find the 3.5mm Jack, at the right side, you’d find the volume rockers as well as the power button. The bottom houses the charging port and the microphone while the left side houses no component.

As you can tell, this is all shades of green. Except the front display though. From the side trims to the back pack, all green. This perhaps, may not be a preferred color for the male folks. However, the female folks would love this.

If the green color isn’t your thing, there are more color options to choose from.

I must say, I kinda like how the fingerprint reader color blend with the color of the phone though.

Holding the device, it kinda feels light, owing to the fact that the device only weighs 168 g. This, sure weighs lesser than the Infinix HOT 4.

So that’s it guys. That’s all for the unboxing of the infinix HOT 5 and my first look at the smartphone. Subsequent interesting videos regarding the infinix HOT 5 will be out in due time.
