The Infinix Hot 8 runs on the Android 9 operating system, while the Oppo F7 runs on the older Android 8.1 Oreo.
Not much to talk about, since no smartphone company has any bragging rights about the Android operating systems.
Newer phones will obviously come with the latest android operating system, of course with some benefits.
Both the Oppo F7 and Infinix Hot 8 are powered by MediaTek Octa-Core processors with speed ratings of 2.0GHz.
If you are running away from tiny smartphone screens, the Infinix Hot 8 may be your best landing point, with a 6.6 inches LCD screen
This is however only 0.3 inches more than the Oppo F7 LCD screen.
And on matters resolution, Oppo F7 has a quad-HD resolution (2280 x 1080 Pixels), while Infinix Hot 8 is not yet to Full HD resolution (720 x 1600 pixels).
Generally, screens with higher resolution levels are more costly, probably the reason you have to pay more than 10k extra coins to get the Oppo F7.
For this reason, it’s always important to weigh your needs against your budget.
RAM and Internal Storage
If you are running away from the problems that come with smartphones featuring 1GB RAM, you would actually be safer with Oppo F7 than Infinix Hot 8.
Why? Because Oppo F7 comes with 4GB RAM, while Infinix Hot 8 comes with 2GB RAM.
Of course, 2GB is good, but also a good neighbor to your enemy (1GB).
Another advantage of the Oppo F7 over Infinix Hot 8 is the 64GB Internal memory it offers.
I mean, that’s good enough for several Music folders, Movies and Games to keep you entertained.
Plus the expansion slot will accommodate an extra 256GB.
The new Infinix Hot 8 comes with 32GB internal memory and allows you to expand this by slotting in a micro SD up to a maximum of 128GB.
If you are looking for a smartphone mainly for selfies, then Oppo F7 suits you better than the new Infinix Hot 8.
F7 features a 16 Megapixels main camera and a 24 Megapixels front camera for selfies.
On the other hand, the new Infinix Hot 8 comes with a 13 Megapixels main camera and an 8 Megapixels selfie camera.
8MP for selfies is just fine for any smartphone user unless you are looking for super-quality selfies.
If you are reading this comparative review because you are tired of recharging your smartphone after every 2 hours, then consider courting the new Infinix Hot 8.
Although the battery rating is just part of the story, it’s obvious that a 5,000mAh battery is a real deal.
And that is too far ahead of the 3400mAh that comes with Oppo F7. Again, with such a good screen, one would expect a good battery rating for the Oppo F7.
Reason? The screen’s appetite for power is normally more than that of all the other I/O components combined.
You don’t want to be a slave to power banks, having to carry them even to a nearby shopping center.
In conclusion, always remember that a good smartphone, with a good screen, but with a small battery capacity, is a good suicide rope.
