Reviews for the Infinix Hot 40i

75% Infinix Hot 40i review: a compelling sub-10k option for selfie lovers
Source: 91mobiles English
Talking about the competition in this price segment first, the POCO M6 stands out for its performance, and could be worth a look for that, while those looking for 5G support can consider the Itel P55 5G. However, the Infinix Hot 40i’s highlight is its front camera. When people ask for phones with capable selfie cameras, we usually have to look towards higher price segments. Priced at Rs 9,299, the Hot 40i helps bridge this gap and comes across as a solid choice for selfie lovers at an affordable price point. The phone also brings a host of useful software features that add to the user experience, and therefore, comes across as a good buy in the sub-10k segment.

70% Infinix Hot 40i review: Budget-friendly smartphone that does the basics right
Source: The Times of India English
The Infinix Hot 40i offers various new features in comparison to the company's other budget devices. Features like Magic Ring, XClone, Xboost and others can come as a unique offering in the budget market. Additionally, the performance was satisfactory when it came to the most basic requirements for users. The design and massive display are also something that may be to buyers liking as many prefer bigger devices for gaming and streaming purposes. While the Infinix Hot 40i offers great value for basic tasks, for buyers who want to frequently multitask between demanding apps, play graphics-intensive games, or need powerful processing this smartphone's performance is challenging. In such cases, you can explore other devices which match your requirements.

Infinix Hot 40i Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Infinix designed the Infinix Hot 40i with exciting specs and features that make it a perfect smartphone on a budget for modern users. You get a modern design that will certainly please you and anyone else who sees it. You get a decent display with modern high-refresh-rate support. The cameras are good which you usually don’t see in a smartphone of this price range. The same goes for the battery and charger, no complaints. However, there are also some disadvantages. The chipset speed is decent, which may cause heating issues on low-RAM models. There’s also no protection for the display or any protection from water splashes. So, keep these in mind. However, if you are an average user and use a smartphone mainly for calling, texting, and social media, then we believe this smartphone can be perfect for you. There’s another smartphone that could provide the same experience.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

72.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
