Comments off


The Infinix Hot 4 Lite is the latest addition to the rapidly expanding range of Infinix smartphones.

The smartphone is a budget variant of the Hot 4 and features a number of watered-down features that makes it slightly affordable.

That said, here is what the Ksh. 8,299 Infinix Hot 4 Lite has to offer.


Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: 4000mAh

The Infinix Hot 4 Lite features a large 4000mAh and is the core reason why Infinix wants you to buy the smartphone.

A 4000 mAh battery is quite big and you can easily squeeze out 48 hours while on moderate usage. In addition to the large battery capacity, the Infinix Hot 4 Lite features 2.0A charging and you can therefore recharge the large capacity battery in record time.


Display Size: 5.5-inch

Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 Pixels

Screen Protection: None


The Infinix Hot 4 Lite comes with a 5.5-inch 720 x 1280 Pixels resolution. The display profile is identical to the one found on the Infinix Hot 4.


Dimensions: 152.6 x 76.2 x 8.8 mm


The Infinix Hot 4 Lite features a design that is also identical to the Hot 4. You get a 3D Texture Origami design that feels and looks really good.

The only difference between the Hot 4 Lite and Hot 4 is the lack of the fingerprint sensor.


Operating System: XOS Based on Android 6.0

CPU: 1.3 Ghz Mediatek MT6580


Internal Memory: 16 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 32 GB

Infinix Hot 4 Price in Kenya

A 1.3 Ghz Mediatek MT6580 chipset powers the Infinix Hot 4 Lite. This is coupled with 1GB RAM. It’s kind of a bummer that the Hot 4 Lite has just 1 GB RAM since you can hardly get stuff done with such a small capacity.

However, XOS runs amazingly well on the device, but stutters and lags exist here and there. Other than that, you get 16 GB for your files and a Micro-SD slot that can handle up to 32 GB of memory.


Rear Camera: 8.0 MP

Secondary Camera: 5.0 MP

LED Flash: Yes

Infinix Hot 4 Lite Camera

The camera profile of the Infinix Hot 4 Lite is also another highlight of the smartphone. You get 8.0 MP camera for general photography and a 5.0 MP Snapper for your selfies.


Dual SIM


The Infinix Hot 4 Lite holds a very interesting position.

It’s basically for you if you are out shopping for an Infinix device that runs XOS while on a very tight budget.
