The tech senses ambient light using AI algorithms which refines the screen contrast, improves the picture's brightness and enhances the overall display in strong sunlight.

While 12 bands ensure data accuracy and call with 5G network, allowing you to play game using one SIM card and make a call on another at the same time. It all happened without affecting game server connection. This is very surprizing as in the budget segments, there are only few options available with 5G connectivity.

The processor ensures outstanding all-around performance with a dominant frequency of 2x 2.4GHz Cortex-A76 and 6x 2GHz Cortex-A55, which is 20% faster than its predecessor.

To give gaming enthusiasts an amazing gaming experience, Infinix has added Bionic Breathing Cooling technology which ensures that your phone does not heat significantly during extreme gaming or long use. We played several games on this phone to check the performance as well as heating issue but there was no such issue during our review period. This is ultimately a best performer under budget segment. In addition, the smartphone runs on XOS 10.6 which is based on Android 12.

This smartphone support Type C charging. The battery is very big and it can power this smartphone all day and we also tested the battery backup during our review.

We charged the phone only once and battery sustained all day which is a good thing because battery remains one of the major concerns in today’s time. With a single charge, we could listen to the music at a stretch of 125 hours, navigational of 20 hours and game play of around 11 hours.

How’s the Camera?

Camera has become a top priority for customers as almost everyone is fond of clicking the selfies, pictures and videos to cherish precious moments.

The rear camera also has a real-time eye-tracking autofocus feature paired with AI algorithms that helps to deliver more natural and studio-style pictures.

HOT 20 5G also features an 8MP in-display selfie camera with a single LED flash. We clicked several pictures in indoor and outdoor environments and we were really amazed with the picture quality we got from HOT 20 5G. It is a perfect device for photography enthusiasts.
