Infinix used to be the brand that played it safe, but they are going all out to make their presence felt in the market right now. That is what we can say of the introduction of this Infinix Hot S4 which brings all the flagship detailing and treatment to a fairly-priced device.
Before looking at what this device carries, the aesthetics is already enough to convince anyone of what promises lie under the hood. On closer checking, that promise is kept… in full!

Infinix Hot S4 Features Overview
Infinix has been copying the notch style on Apple’s iPhone X series for a while now, but they took the latest waterdrop notch approach to their Hot S4. This makes for more screen real estate – ensuring users get to use more and more of the 6.2 inches screen that the phone brings out of the box.
Of course, this would be a handful for anyone without slightly larger hands. What you might not consider is the fact that the screen is built on a 19:9 aspect ratio, making it an ideal fit for most hand sizes (since the phone will be longer than it is wide).
Inside that small waterdrop notch on the front is a massive 32MP camera sensor to give you the best selfies whenever engaged. The Hot S4 camera is also sure to supply some of the best qualities when you are dealing with video calls. However, the Infinix Hot S4 had to sacrifice a flash to keep that notch small.
Don’t expect to have any bomb selfies in low light anytime soon.
If that is dulling your hopes on this phone, wait till you see the back. Made of glossy glass, this premium feel perfectly replicates the look of a metal back while giving you the additional class that comes with glass. Of course, we would have loved if this glass back was functional enough to support wireless charging too.
That said, the glass material on the Infinix Hot S4 is not the most impressive thing on the back.
We know there is no way you are going to miss this, but we might as well mention that there are three cameras on the back of this unit. Yes – not one, not two, but a massive three cameras!
All of these cameras come together to give you the perfect blend of depth, colour, ambience and all other metrics that go into the development of a great picture. It would almost be a sin if they didn’t have their own LED flash, so they came with a quad-LED setup!
Diving under the case, Infinix Hot S4 is even more impressive with its 6GB RAM paired to 64GB of storage space. Well, that is if you are going for the highest version. Otherwise, you are stuck with 32GB internal storage space running on 3GB of RAM.
Depending on how much of a power user you are, you should get what you love in there.
The same back panel houses a fingerprint sensor, but you might not use it as much when the Face Unlock system has been activated. It doesn’t hurt to set it up anyways.
Made available in all of Space Gray, Nebula Blue and Twilight Purple, Infinix Hot S4 comes with a 4000mAh battery, tasked with keeping the juices running.
Infinix Hot S4 price and availability
Although the Hot S4 was just announced last month, it has already gone on sale in the country. You can head over to your offline or online stores to snag up a unit whenever you feel like it.
Before buying, remember that there are two different models of this unit in the market. Ensure you have just the right model before you pay for it, lest you get something less/ more powerful than you truly need.
That said, pricing should swing between NGN49,000 – NGN64,500.

Infinix Hot S4 Best Alternatives
Even though the Infinix Hot S4 comes in two different forms already, you might not need all that power on a smartphone. Keeping in the Infinix line, you should be satisfied with what the Infinix Hot 7 provides then.
The Tecno Camon 11 is also a great pick any day, as well as Tecno Pouvoir 3 and Tecno Spark 3. If you can look past the fact that it was launched almost six months ago, you are good to go.
You should probably know that none of these units will give you the triple camera treatment, neither do they come with the new and amazing notch system.
