Today’s comparison review pits the Infinix Hot 6X against the Hot S3X. Though the 2 smartphones have a number of similarities — they both come with the trendy notched screen, the same 6.2” screen size, 4000-mAh battery, and so on — they have bigger differences. As expected.
Such differences have to do with their launch dates, prices, designs, displays, hardware, software, batteries, and other essential specs and features. Let’s cut to the chase and examine which of these mobile devices offers the greater value for its cost.
INFINIX Hot 6X VS Hot S3X — Design
Measuring 8.3mm in thickness, the Infinix Hot S3X is a little slimmer than the Hot 6X, which measures 8.5mm in thickness. Also, the former also weighs slightly less than the latter with both having weights of 150g and 168g respectively. Thus, if you are a big fan of slim, lightweight phones, the Hot S3X may be a better choice for you.
INFINIX Hot 6X VS Hot S3X — Display
While both devices sport the same screen size, the same IPS LCD notched screen, and the same 1500 by 720-pixel resolution; their displays show some differences. The Infinix Hot 6X offers a screen-to-body ratio of around 87% (95.9 cm2) and 271 PPI, while its counterpart is pegged at 81%(96.7 cm2) and 267 PPI respectively.
INFINIX Hot 6X VS Hot S3X — Camera
When it comes to their rear camera specs, things are pretty much the same in both Hot models. The 2 phones offer a dual rear camera setup of 13 MP (f/2.0, AF) & 2 MP (depth sensor). Some features of these shooters are Dual-LED flash, HDR, and panorama. However, where the Hot S3X beats its rival is in the front-facing selfie camera section: While it packs a 16-MP shooter, the Hot 6X has a 5-MP secondary camera. Therefore, in terms of camera, the Infinix Hot 3X will produce clearer and finer selfies as it features a more powerful secondary shooter.
INFINIX Hot 6X VS Hot S3X — Performance
As for the performance of the Hot 6X, it has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor with clock speeds that max out at 1.3GHz. However, the Hot S3X’s octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chip clocks at 1.4GHz. The former device has a model with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM and another variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. The Hot S3X also features 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. Thus, owing to its more powerful CPU, it is expected to have a better performance than the Hot Infinix Hot 6X’s version with the same RAM and ROM. Both Infinix products run the stock Android v8.1 Oreo.
INFINIX Hot 6X VS Hot S3X — Battery
As said earlier, they both have a non-removable Li-Ion 4000-mAh battery with fast charge support.
The Hot 6X’s cost will be in the neighborhood of $164 (around 60, 000 NGN); so it is expected to be a little cheaper than the Hot S3X, which costs around $172 (62,300 NGN).
