  1. Nice Phone, Just purchased yesterday, 110% satisfied !!. For the price, it is great

  2. the processor is probably the worst processor in the market , it will not be able to run any good games so dont buy this for gaming ,but then whats the use of a big battery , overall this phone isnt worth the money when u can get Qmobile LT680 with superior 64bit proceccor with mali 720 and 4g support at similar price with simlar storage ram and battery

    1. Lt680 processor is even weaker dude
      Hot 4 is much better for games compared to Lt 680 and by the way don’t compare it with q mobiles

      1. LT680 processor is MT6735P and graphic card is Mali T720
        Infinix note 3 processor is 6580 and graphic card is Mali 400 (the same as galaxy S2)

  3. should have come with 4G, and with that I would have easily paid 13,500 or 14,000 PKR, but for now, it’s really not offering anything special to convince me buy it. 4000 mah and fingerprint sensor are not enough, and if it had to arrive without 4G, price shouldn’t have exceeded 11,500 PKR.
