Infinix Hot 7 Pro is the latest addition to Infinix’s product line that has created a positive impact on Infinix’s overall brand value. The Infinix Hot 7 Pro price in Pakistan is around 19,999 PKR that is specifically designed to cater to the lower or mid-tier customers who have no reach to a costly smartphone. Therefore, the selling point of the 7 Pro is the high-end features at a very affordable price. With 7 Pro, Infinix has tried well to get all the features that an Apple or a Samsung smartphone has. So, let’s look at what Infinix 7 Pro has to offer us and see whether it is competent or not?
Infinix Hot 7 Pro’s design has been made very simple and basic. It has the same old-style wide notch at the top that houses the selfie camera and LED flashlight. Why I am saying old style because we all know that all the latest smartphones are having a small waterdrop notch. But never mind! At the back, there is a dual-camera setup at the top and a fingerprint scanner in the middle.
Besides, Infinix Hot 7 Pro has a 6.19-inch-long display that gives you a large angled display to let you enjoy your videos on a large screen. There are thin bezels surrounded by a metallic panel that gives a slightly premium look to the overall design. However, the chin of the handset is a little bit extended on the lower part. Moreover, the curved edges make it handy to carry around.
It is available in Midnight Black, Aqua Blue, and Mocha Brown color variants.
Software and Processor
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro runs under the latest Android 9 version powered by MediaTek Helio operating system. The 7 Pro comes with 2/3/6 GB RAM which is quite hard to find under this price range. In addition to that, the internal storage that 7 Pro has is 32/64 GB which is then again, a good thing. But then even if you want to have more storage then there is a dedicated micro SD card slot that allows you to expand the phone’s memory up to 128 GB. So, you don’t need to worry about getting short of space.
Apart from that, there are some pre-installed applications in 7 Pro like Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and some games too. However, there are few apps that keep on spamming your notification panel.
The 6 GB RAM specifically has it all sorted letting you have a smooth performance with a little bit hanging in between. The apps do take a while to launch but multi-tasking is snappier. The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and face recognition work with average speed. Though, the face recognition fails to work in dark. Other than that, the phone gets warmer while playing the game to an indefinite amount. Overall performance was okay and nothing extraordinary found.
Coming to the camera, the 7 Pro has a dual-camera setup on both back and front. The back camera sports the main camera of 13 megapixels and a secondary camera of 2 megapixels. In the same way, there is a 13-megapixel main camera paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor on the front. Likewise, there is a separate LED flashlight on both sides of the smartphone.
Also, the camera is AI-powered though this works at a somewhat slow pace. Other than that, there are some other features in the camera app by default including autofocus, continuous shooting, face detection, geo-tagging, panorama, self-timer, etc.
On the whole image quality was satisfactory. Moreover, HDR also works on an average stride. The shots taken with HDR were in fact slightly overexposed with over-saturation of colors. On top of that, the camera results were acceptable under low light conditions but with quite sharp images.
As far as the front camera is concerned the selfies taken from Infinix Pro Hot 7 were of considerably decent quality. Along with this, the portrait mode in selfie blurs out the background finely, making good use of depth sensor.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes with a powerful 4000 mAh non-removable long-lasting battery that is again a rarely found feature in smartphones under this price category. The battery goes fit throughout the day and even after constant use of social media and data connection there will be some charge still left. It is capable enough to support moderate to heavy use.
The Final Word
Infinix Hot 7 Pro is a phone with great battery, latest operating system, and 6 GB RAM. It is overall a middling phone that is best for those who want to upgrade to a new smartphone yet staying in their budget. As per the price that it comes in, 7 Pro has got a good set of features. But if you are very considerate about the camera results and uninterrupted usage then this is not for you. Nonetheless, it can be considered as a good pocket-friendly smartphone.
