infinix hot 5 lite x559

Infinix Hot 5 Lite is, as the name suggests, the mini version of the basic Infinix Hot 5 device from Infinix Mobility. The phones were induced into the market without any official unveiling or launching.

Coming as a ‘Lite’ version, Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a great entry level smartphone but it missed some crucial and enticing features. Just as the main Infinix Hot 5, the Hot 5 Lite didn’t also come with 4G network option which is quite discouraging.
