Infinix Hot 9 Play Performance
We describe the performance of Infinix Hot 9 Play as acceptable at this price point. The phone comes with 2 GB RAM and an expandable 32GB of internal storage. By the way, something we forgot to mention while telling you about the battery is this. That Hot 9 Play has improved the battery quality has a 60% enhanced battery life-cycle for longer durability. Battery Lab is also present here as with unique AI power optimization system that improves overall standby time.
Back to it, 32 GB of internal storage is alright if you do not store so many files on the phone. Nevertheless, it can be expanded using an SD card up to 256 GB. Be also on the lookout for DTS audio processing technology which is present on the Hot 9 Play.
Display and camera
Infinix Hot 9 Play not only brings a big battery to last longer but also a big 6.82″ IPS LCD screen to immerse yourself in the fun. Of course, it is a 720p display with 1640 x 720 pixels resolution. Infinix calls this a Cinematic display and it has a 20.5:9 full view ratio which is closer to the IMax movie ratio. See the official website here.
As for the cameras, the main shooter on the back panel is a 13MP camera and it comes with a QVGA, also known as AI lens. Infinix Hot 9 Play has an 8MP selfie shooter. Clearly, the selling point of this phone is its display size and large battery capacity.
Massive 6,000 mAh battery
Just as a reiteration since this is by far the best feature of Infinix Hot 9 Play. It has a massive 6,000 mAh battery that lasts, and lasts, and lasts. Even Infinix Hot 9 (check it out here) only has a 5,000 mAh battery capacity.
