This right here is the hot 10s nfc, which has slightly different specs to the standard infinix hot 10s, but definitely some pretty solid specs. For a 120 asking price that’s, just under 100 quid here in the uk, these phones will be rolling out to select regions over the next couple of months. What i’m going to do is whip the infinix hot 10s nfc out of its box to get a full on tour of the hardware and the software. So you know what to expect and for more on the latest and greatest budget blowers. Please do box subscribe and ding that notifications bell cheers all right, so let’s see how hot this really is. Nice inside the box, you get the smartphone, you get a teeny, tiny little power, adapter, oh it’s, so cute you got a charging cable and yes, it is that got awful micro. Usb nonsense. Why won’t you just die already. You’Ve also got a porky pin to get your sim in there, the obligatory condom kiss to help protect the infinix 10s nfc, otherwise, a bit of a stiff one fan off now and you even get a screen protector chucked in the box as well. So for 120, you do get an awful lot of stuff uh in there. Considering most, you know: galaxy s21s, the iphones don’t even give you a bloody charger anymore. And lastly, you also get what looks dodgy like a one dollar bill, but it’s some sort of invite to join the x club.
Apparently, this allows you to make friends become famous and earn money so yeah. So anyway, that is the box. Now let’s check out the phone sadashi blows: the infinix hot 10s nfc, which is an absolute beast at 6.82 inches, but thankfully, actually doesn’t weigh an absolute ton, probably helped along by the plastic. Finish. Apparently, infinix used laser micron lithography technology to create this shimmering texture. On the plastic surface and that’s, inspired by the salah de uni in bolivia and i’ll, be honest. I understood about eight percent of the words that just came out of my mouth right there. You can grab the infinix hot tennis nfc in four different colors. This is apparently the mirandi green, even though it looks a lot more like blue to my buggered old eyes, but you can also grab it in 95 degree, black, seven degree, purple or heart of ocean whatever that is got ta say, though, given that low price point, The design actually ain’t that bad at all i’ve simply seen a lot more garish uh, for you know twice the price of this at least there’s no horrible, obnoxious, slogan, slathered all over the back end or anything like that. It’S good. To see that the camera chassis is almost level with that rear surface, only juts out ever so slightly and you’ve also got that rear, mounted fingerprint sensor and it’s good to see your old mate, the headphone jack as well, even if it is sharing a bit of Bottom space with this atrocity here, let’s just see what the sim tray situation is on the hot tennis nfc as well.
Now that’s good news there as well, because not only is the hot 10s nfc a dual sim device, but also you’ve got a separate micro, sd memory card slot to expand the storage, all right so it’s time to boot. Up this beastly infinix budget blower. And then we can get it all set up and take a full on tour of the camera, the performance all that good stuff now and we’re already off to a bad start, because the only english i can choose is united states. There’S no queen’s english option on here boo. This goddamn phone starts misspelling words like color i’m, not to be impressed. In fact, uk isn’t even an option in the list of countries i’m gon na have to go with others. I’Ll tell you what you do a brexit and then all of a sudden you’re completely insignificant all right, so the infinix hot 10 s nfc all set up and good to go, and what you got here is the latest precious android. 11 osb do have the xos 7.6 slathered on top and, as you can see, this changes up the ui. To give you an alternative to the google discover feed so first, as you can quickly see how many steps you’ve walked today, that’s pretty much accurate for me check out the weather fast access to your recent apps, all that good stuff, as well as your headlines, then Christ, you do still get an abstract. You don’t have to have all your crap cluttering up your desktops, but you got to remember when you want to go back home not to swipe down, because this basically just opens up an advert for wallpapers and games.
Instead, you’ve got a swipe to go home like so, and then swiping down doesn’t bring down your notifications, but what it does instead is open up. A search bar and apparently tucker coulson is a hot search, so hot he’s got extra fire next trim. If only was actually on fire, that would please me so definitely one of the heaviest launchers i’ve seen come pre installed on a smartphone in quite some time, as you can see, changes up the general aesthetics as well as the the ui shenanigans. If you dive on into the settings menu as well, it’s, barely recognizable as an android sends menu, it’s changed up quite a lot lots of different features in there. The power marathon mode basically looks like a battery saver mode got the xos lab, which sounds exciting, except it doesn’t actually have anything in it. Then, if you jump into special function, there’s plenty of stuff crammed in here, including the game mode, which can apparently manage your resources, your cpu gpu, uh memory, all that good stuff. In the background, when you’re playing games, you’ve got plenty of parental controls, got usual kid modes and stuff here on the infinix, hot tennis and it’s good to see a game anti addiction mode built in as well. So you can see exactly how long your sprogs are allowed to blow them its brains out in games like call of duty and the like and usual action and gesture control as well, although no double karate chop to turn on the camera flash, sadly and thunderback.
That sounds hilariously, good and okay. So apparently, what this does is when you’re using a supported app such as youtube. For instance, what you need to do is double tap that fingerprint sensor and it will minimize the app like source. So if you’re watching a video, you can sort of wedge it up in the corner and continue to sort of listen to it, while you’re doing something else, for instance, checking out a website or whatever, and then, when you’re done, you can just give this little tappy Tap and speaking of youtube, you’ve got a video tool feature as well, which you can access by swiping your finger from the side and holding, and this offers similar sort of tools to xiaomi’s miui. So, as you can see there, you can, for instance, play a video in the background. While the screen is hibernated. If you’re listening to a podcast on youtube, you can block any pesky messages or incoming calls, as well in case you’re, enjoying a good bit of text. But action you don’t want to be disturbed perfectly understandable, it’s also worth pointing out. You can absolutely butt loads of crap. Wear pre installed here on the infinix hot tennis. Nfc you get games, stores you’ve got uh bees, whatever the hell bees is. I was kind of hoping that would just unleash a load of killer bees, but apparently not coal care, no idea. What on earth that is, jumping zoo sounds like a classic and then, of course, all up in that x club.
So definitely plenty of features packed in there and then you’ve also got that rear, mounted fingerprint sensor for your security as well and touch wood. This seems to be really fast, really responsive, certainly for a 120 dollar handset, no issues there whatsoever and you’ve also got what uh infinix claims is some proper 3d face modelling for your face, recognition as well, and certainly this seems to be just as nippy as that Fingerprint sensor, and they even reckon it’ll work with a face mask on so let’s, just slap this on and see if it still recognizes my haggard looking mug turn it on yeah. It certainly does which uh i’m not quite sure how great that is for the security aspect of things. Is it going to be easily fooled by somebody else who just looks a bit, like you uh, it’s, obviously hard to say without doing some proper testing, but certainly from a convenience standpoint, it’s, quite quite nifty, and then of course, because this is the nfc model of The infinix hot 10 s you have that nfc support for your contactless pyramids with the likes of google pay and the hot 10s comes in 64, 128 gig storage options. This is the 128 gig model, but, as i’ve mentioned before, you’ve got microsd memory card support to expand that when you want to so anyway, let’s turn our attention to that flopping massive 6.82 inch ips display it is only an hd plus effort and it’s on the Ips as well so images aren’t exactly super crisp and you can’t exactly expect poppy in your face.
Colors either, but it’ll be absolutely fine for a good bit of youtube action as long as you’re, not too fussy about your visuals. Of course, you do have a wee nipple notch poking its way up at the top end of the screen, it’s just slightly intruded when you’ve got a full view, but nothing too severe at all. If you boost the infinix hot 10s, nfc’s brightness levels all the way up to maximum levels, you will still struggle a little bit outdoors in bright, sunlight to see what is going on, but it’s, nothing too severe and the viewing angles are generally awkward. Slight darkening of the image as you tilt away from your face. If you dive into the display settings, you’ve got all the usual good stuff, like the eye care mode, just to help warm things up a bit in the evening. So it’s not quite so much a strain on your old peepers and you do actually have a 90 hertz screen refresh rate as well, which is really impressive. Considering the budget price point and as you can see there, you can manually stick the infinix hot 10s into 60 hertz, more 90 hertz mode or you can have it all or decide uh between the two, depending on what you’re up to suppose the audio goes well. It’S, just a model speaker housed here on the bottom end of the infinix hot 10s nfc uh, but let’s bump up the volume, see if it’s any good.
I thought this was a much better setup overall, because then you don’t have hands getting in the way of the rest of the text, so quite tinny on those top volumes. Even if they do pack a bit of a punch. You know they are quite louds. They’Ll be able to cut through background clamour and all that but yeah. I would stick definitely with that headphone jack when you want to enjoy some audio now. The performance here is provided by mediatek’s helio g85 chipset, backed by it, tries to be the four or six gigs of ram. This is the exact same chipset you’ll find in the likes of xiaomi’s redmi, note, 9 and samsung’s galaxy a32, smartphones and it’s. Absolutely fine for your everyday shenanigans and also for a bit like gaming on the side as well likes a college youtube mobile will play on medium detail. Settings absolutely fine did see a little jeddah as i started the match. But apart from that, it ran nice and smoothly, and the screen is nice and responsive as well certainly managed to rack up plenty of kills and that’s helped along by that darling ultimate game booster feature as well, which, as i say it, manages all your phone’s resources In the background to keep things running and nice and slick, and at any point, you can pull out the game tools as well, just by swiping your finger in and holding it. Just like. You did with the video tools, and this offers a small selection of gaming features, including call rejection, do not disturb, and you can also record the action as it unfolds so i’m gon na need 5g support here on the infinix hot 10 s nfc.
That would be a bit of a stretch for the 120 asking price. You do get 5 000 milliamp battery crammed inside of this thing, though, and if you uh don’t get the nfc model. If you get the standard hot 10s, then that upgrades that to a 6 000 milliamp battery instead let’s finish up with the squint of that camera tech and what you get here is a triple lens setup. On the back end of the infinix, hot tennis, nfc got a 48 megapixel primary lens, a two megapixel depth sensor and an ai lens, which sounds rather mysterious. Now you’re deposited into what infinix terms the ai cam, when you first load up the camera app. This is basically your full blown. Auto mode got a whole bunch of toggles and stuff to play with including the likes of the hdr mode. You can also shoot at that maximum 48 megapixel mode if you want to by toggling this little icon up here. Otherwise, it shoots 12 megapixel with four and one pixel bending by default. As usual, you got a bug, a load of filters that you can play around with. If you want to change up the vibe of your shot and if you like bonus camera features boy, are you covered off by the hot tennis nfc, you got a dedicated beauty mod. This rather depressingly appears to have a body shape mode where you can actually change. Uh, how wide your hips are, how big your gut is! Oh god, you can even change the shape of your arse, apparently that’s.
All a bit rancid though so let’s steer well clear. Of that don’t worry guys. Your arse is perfect to uncle spurt, oh god that just sounds all kinds of wrong. Uh let’s just cut this bit you’ve also got a portrait mode which of course uses that depth sensor to add a bokeh style background effect. You got the likes the super night mode, which can just take lots of different shots of different apertures blend them all together for a nice light, balanced effect, you swipe up this way. You’Ve got even more stuff shoved away in there as well, and if you swap to video by default, you’re shooting in 1080p, you can switch that up to 2k, apparently and then, if we swap to the front facing 8 megapixel selfie snapper, as you can see, they Can shoot fairly wide angle? Snaps your mug complete with hdr smart it’s got the usual beauty mode shenanigans again, so i can do something with my tiered drops. I don’t know how to make my tears. Look all sparkly or something uh change my fierce shape and basically make myself look even less human than i already did so that right then, in a nutshell, is the fresh, new infinix hot 10s nfc model which, as i say, will be rolling out to select regions Globally, over the next couple of months for a price tag of around 120 us dollars and it’s certainly got some respectable specs for that asking price as well it’s great to see a 90 hertz display absolutely massive bloody one.
At that, you’ve got just about strong enough performance to get gaming. If you want to the only thing that might put a lot of people off. Is that really heavy launcher that’s slapped there on top of android, so anyway, that’s? What i think of the infinix hot 10s nfc slightly clunky name stumbled over that a few times in the shoot of uh. This video, let me tell you that but boy howdy i’d be great to hear uh your own thoughts on this smartphone as well down in the comments below.
