Some phones appear to be hot, as others look cool; Out of that league, comes a smartphone that is both. The Infinix S3, presumably the coolest phone for anyone that invests time in taking selfies, is the latest beauty from the Infinix Brand. It is also to be one of the most affordable smartphones in Uganda to run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box.
The business model of smartphones of late is leaning on offering a distinctive feature; a result of which is the launch of smartphones with high resolution front cameras, and exclusive battery capacity. The S3 does go an extra mile to offer a good front camera, a big buttery, without disappointing elsewhere.
In a revolving industry where it is not just about packing a huge display but rather trimming the bezels around that display, the Infinix S3 has been able to squeeze in a 5.7 inches screen in what feels like a 5.2-inch device, thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio. A unibody design makes it easy to hold and operate with one hand, with a fingerprint sensor at the back.
It has a a 20MP front camera that comes with dual flash soft light to light up the selfies, and is also optimized for full view displays. The back camera is 13MP sensor with High Dynamic Range photography and video capabilities for a professional setting.
As always from the company, the Infinix S3 comes with the XOS 3 to back up Android Oreo. This allows you to do personal activity at your pace, like splitting the screen, and image post-production. A decent performance from the Snapdragon 430 SoC, on top of a 4000mAh battery is another feature worth noting.
It comes in two memory variants of 4GB + 64GB and 3GB + 32GB, in two colours.
