Full Specs and Features of Infinix Hot 2
Like i always expect, the infinix company NEVER fails to disappoint me, when it comes to screen size. The Infinix Hot 2 X510 comes with a 5.0-inch display, and features a 720×1280 pixels resolution. You will discover that the screen display is awesome and it’s visibility, especially in the outdoors is remarkable and greatly beautiful.
Using the camera, i got a clear shot which is shown below. I achieve an excellent outdoor visibility even under a 50% display brightness of the hot 2.
One of the major difference which some people fail to see, is that the Hot 2 X510 comes with a display of TFT LCD, and not an IPS LCD.
You should know that the TFT LCD displays do have some flaws when it comes to color reproduction and delivering excellent viewing angles. So what am trying to say here, is that Color accuracy is a major issue with the Infinix Hot 2.
