Here at Unbox Diaries, we surely love the Infinix Hot 12 Play– this phone even topped our under 10K smartphone tier list, and even smashed the best budget phone clash!
The Infinix Hot 12 Play is a rare gem of a smartphone from this age forward, in a sea of overpriced devices and underwhelming budget-range ones. The Hot 12 Play is a cut above the rest with competitive specs on a ‘pamigay’ price range.
What makes Infinix Hot 12 Play the best value for money? We listed ten reason why this smartphone is such a steal at this price range, read on as we reveal all the factors:
1.) Durable build
The Infinix Hot 12 Play has a heavy duty metal build, with a classic line etching style that is rarely seen around smartphones under this price range, usually every phone around this price has a plastic back.
2.) Large display
Boasting a 6.82 inch IPS LCD display, clearly the Infinix Hot 12 Play had gamers and binge-watchers on their minds. Having a large display meaning a larger screen estate perfect for mobile gamers who doesn’t want to get their fingers jammed up touching multiple buttons because of a crammed screen.
3.) Even larger battery
With a massive 6000mAh Li-Po battery paired with a decent 18W fast charger, Infinix Hot 12 Play is the reliable choice when it comes to gaming and battery longevity.
4.) 90Hz refresh rate
That’s right, Infinix Hot 12 Play has manage to include a 90Hz refresh rate for under Php 6,000.00, which is super rare to see in the wild under this price range.
5.) Unisoc Tiger T610 processor
We know, this is a bit controversial to include the still unknown Unisoc chipset company to include on this list but think about how their reputation has increased since their establishment, they provide decent processor for entry-level smartphones with decent speed for example, while the Infinix Hot 12 Play scores around 198k on AnTuTu 9.3, it is enough processing power to run most apps and even play your favorite games in a hitch without any major CPU throttling issues.
6.) Modern bezel design
An almost edgeless display, and placing a punch hole design in a budget smartphone device is always a welcome addition in a sea of waterdrop and iPhone 13-esque bezels plaguing among smartphones. The Infinix Hot 12 Play gets another plus for that.
7.) Headphone jack
We know, the headphone jack inclusion is not a rarity among budget smartphones but it always nice to see that the Infinix Hot 12 Play also has it.
8.) USB Type-C
Having a USB Type-C in a smartphone under this price range are really hard to come by, as most models often opt out for the much more cheaper microUSB option. But yes, the Infinix Hot 12 Play has one.
9.) 4GB + 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage
Where you can find a smartphone around Php 5,000.00 that has an expandable RAM feature up to 3GB for a total of 7GB and a 64GB internal storage? There is almost none. Most smartphone brands offer only 3GB RAM and 32GB of ROM under this category. But yet again, the Infinix Hot 12 Play blows all of them out of the water.
10.) Very cheap
For its price of PHP 5,699 from Php 5,999.00 on its original launch price– it’s definitely a steal and you won’t get this kind of build quality and decent specifications for this price range. Infinix Hot 12 Play is the undisputed king of the mountain for our Super Sulit 10k below tier list.
