The Infinix Hot 9 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P25octa-core processor with a clock speed of 2Ghz. Being the successor of the Infinix Hot 8, the phone has the same processor as it. This is a big disappointment not only in terms of Specs but also in terms of the overall performance of the phone.

The phone still has some noticeable loading time of apps. When the phone runs some heavy app, it tends to hang a lot. When trying to switch between apps, the phone can also be very slow. The phone does not rank well when it is compared to its competitors like the Realme 5, this has a Snapdragon 665 processor. The newly lauched Realme Narzo 10A has the MediaTek G70 processor in it.

The Infinix Hot 9 runs on an Android 10 based operating system. It has 4GB, 3GB and 2GM of RAM. The internal storage capacity comes in 32GB for the 2GB RAM or 32GB for the 3GB RAM, 64GB for the 3GB RAM or 64GB for the 4GB RAM, and 128GB for the 4GB RAM, this can be expanded with a Micro SD up to 256GB.

The phone’s UI is not too clean and it comes with a lot of pre-installed apps like Instagram, Facenook, XClub, AHA Games, Yo Party, PHX Browser, Palm Store and some other games. You can uninstall some of these apps, some of them cannot be uninstalled.

Running the android 10 operating system makes the phone offer its users a lot of motion gestures like the 3 fingers swipe up screenshot. The phone also has a gaming mode that blocks all notification when the mode is activated.


The phone has only one camera in the front and a quad lens set up at the back side of the phone. The Infinix Hot 9 front camera is an 8MP camera that can be used for taking selfies and it comes with a lot of features. Some of the features are AI 3D Face Beauty, AI 3D Body Shaping, AR Animoji, WideSelfie.

It produces decent daylight pictures. You can also add stickers to your images through the in-app sticker feature. If you like artificially beautified images, then you will like this phone. The beautifications of the images of the phone are overdone and they don’t look natural.

The Quad set up at the back of the phone has a 13MP main sensor; the aperture size is f/1.8. The phone also has a 2 MP depth sensor. In its back camera also comes with a lot of features like the auto scene detection, various modes like the Custom Brokeh, AI HDR, AI 3D Body Shaping, AI 3D Beauty.

When it comes to the camera the phone does not really stand out as there is still some complication with the camera. For your low light photography, the phone has a low light sensor, instead of the night mode.
