Infinix Hot 7 Pro Design
The Hot 7 pro has a simple design. It packs a .19- inches HD+ display and a wide notch at the front. Though this looks a little outdated, considering other smartphones use a smaller water drop notch but this is quite understandable for its budget.
The shape was chosen by infinix to accommodate the dual selfie cameras and flash. The earpiece is located just above the notch.
Infinix chose to go with a metal back panel which gives the Hot 7 a pretty great look and feel. It also has a curved edge which makes it comfortable to hold. The power and volume buttons are located on the right side, while the 3-in-1 dual nana SIM and microSD card tray is on the left.
Located at the back of the phone is the dual camera setup along with a single LED flash, and a fingerprint sensor.
The micro – USB port is located at the bottom along side the 3.5mm headphone Jack and loudspeaker grille. The Hot 7 pro has a low charger and earpiece in its box.
The Hot 7 pro comes in midnight Black, Aqua Blue and Mocha Brown colours.

Buy it if you:

- Do not use your phone often because of its battery life.
The Final Verdict
The Infinix Hot 7 pro is a phone that cost just a little amount to have. Its 6GB of RAM makes it better than most phones at its price range but its weak processor drags it a little backward. It has just a little advantage while multitasking because of its 6GB RAM.
The cameras also need a few tweaks to improve their performance in day light.
However, the Infinix Hot 7 pro is a pretty amazing piece of gadget for the price it is been sold at.
