The Infinix Hot 8 runs on the Android 9 operating system, while the Huawei Y7 Prime runs on the older Android 7 Nougat.
Of course, there are some benefits that come with a newer android operating system.
These benefits are however not good enough to tilt the scale either way when making smartphone choices.
Both the Huawei Y7 Prime and Infinix Hot 8 are powered by MediaTek Octa-Core processors.
However, the speed ratings are different, with Infinix Hot 8 boasting of 2.0GHz against the 1.4GHz that Huawei Y7 Prime offers.
Ideally, this translates to faster open times for apps and a smoother gaming experience with Infinix Hot 8 smartphones.
However, if your smartphone usage is just normal, with no heavy games or video editing apps, you are less likely to notice the difference.
Probably the reason you are reading this review is that you are tired of small smartphone screens.
And if you are looking for a bigger screen for games and video streaming, you probably will find a good deal in the new Infinix Hot 8.
The reason is that the new Infinix smartphone features a 6.6 inches Waterdrop display.
This is a whole 1.1 inches more than the Huawei Y7 Prime.
The resolution levels for both smartphones are within the same range, 1280 × 720 pixels for Huawei Y7 Prime and 720 x 1600 pixels for the Infinix Hot 8.
RAM and Internal Storage
If you are looking for a smartphone with as much RAM as you can afford, the Huawei Y7 Prime may be a better deal, with 3GB RAM.
Infinix Hot 8 comes with 2GB RAM, though you still have an option of getting the Pro version with 4GB RAM, of course at an additional cost.
Both smartphones have the same 32GB internal memory and an expansion slot that will accommodate a maximum of 128GB.
Comparing the cameras of the two smartphones, the new Infinix Hot 8 scores better than Huawei Y7 Prime.
First, its a Triple rear camera with an extended capturing angle that enhances the quality of your pictures.
Then an autofocus function that enhances the 13MP main camera, a Quad flash and artificial intelligence capabilities to capture more beautiful images. Plus an 8MP selfie camera.
The Huawei Y7 Prime comes with a 13 MP main camera, 8 MP Selfie camera. Of course, megapixels alone will not give you better images.
These additional features such as extended capturing angles and autofocus are things you need to consider before making your final decision.
Nobody wants to keep charging their smartphone every few minutes. Nobody wants to remain tethered at the charging point the whole day.
You are looking for a smartphone that will allow you to do the heaviest tasks like browsing the internet, online chats and gaming, without the need for a recharge.
Although the battery rating is just part of the story, it’s obvious that a 5,000mAh battery is a better deal.
And that’s what you get with the new Infinix Hot 8, still with the fast charge technology, and the use of AI to monitor your habits and save on power.
And that is too far ahead of the 4000mAh that comes with Huawei Y7 Prime.
