The Infinix HOT 10 Play is a fun device unveiled recently by Infinix Mobility in Kenya and includes a range of appealing customer features. We had the opportunity to use the gadget ourselves and test it out for the Infinix HOT 10 Play review. The phone is well packaged in a box with accessories that you’ll find like an adapter, a charging cable that doubles as a USB cable and, earphones. The Infinix HOT 10 Play has a design identical to the HOT 10, its predecessor but with a notably wider display and a larger battery that promises incredible battery performance.

Infinix HOT 10 Play review


With a 6000 mAh battery, you can go a good number of days without charging. In addition to that, it has two great features to help you save battery; the power boost and ultra mode features. The power boost feature on the phone reduces battery usage. The Ultra mode feature gives you an extended battery life of a few extra hours to use the phone by disabling some apps leaving you with only a few like calls and messaging apps available. This will give you extra time to find a place to charge if you’re stuck.


The phone comes with a wide 6.82 inch-display which gives a user the perfect viewing experience for watching movies and gaming. Its slim panel coupled with an aspect ratio of 20.5:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.66% makes it perfect for one-hand operations and immersive visual experience

The dual-sim phone has a rectangular design with curved edges, a glass front and a plastic back. It comes in 4 colours; Purple, Aegean Blue, Morandi Green, and Obsidian Black. It has a SIM tray on the left side of the phone that can hold two sim cards with room for a microSD card. The volume and power buttons can be found on the right side of the phone. At the bottom, you have speaker grills and a micro-USB charging port.

The camera is one of the most sought features for smartphones and Infinix HOT 10 Play seems to do well in this area. It has a single 8 MP waterdrop notch AI camera at the front which is great for selfies combined with a flash that gives you the perfect lighting at night to shoot crisp and clear pictures. On the back, there is a rectangular shaped module that houses a dual AI camera which is 13 MP wide and a 2 MP depth sensor lens. It also has a redesigned AI Beauty Mode that uses an AI algorithm to recognise your skin colour and give you the ideal look for beauty. You will also find a couple of filters that come with the camera app allowing you to edit your pictures after you take them into masterpieces.

The rear camera takes clearer pictures and performs better than the front camera with dim-light.

The MediaTek Helio G25 Octa-core processor that powers the phone makes it quite efficient to use. Quite suitable for people who love to multitask on their phones, you can have a number of apps open without it slowing down. With an internal storage space of 32 GB and 2 GB RAM, you have enough room to store apps while you run other apps in the background. And if you ever feel the need for more space, the phone comes with an additional 512 GB storage for a memory card.

The HOT 10 Play runs on the latest XOS 7.0 system which is a revolutionary visual interface with smarter interaction.
