What do you need to know about Infinix Hot S X521?

Infinix Hot S X521 is all about style and strength embedded in technology. The company has tried to target the middle-income segment with a 16,899 rupees smartphone Infnix Hot S.

Reviewing Infinix Hot S X521:

A thorough review of the Infinix Hot S X521 series is provided below:


The Infinix Hot S X521 is priced at 16,899 rupees. If compared with other smartphones in the same category, Infinix clearly outclasses all others due to its long battery timing and advanced operational control topped with a functional sleek UI (XUI 2.0).


The smartphone has 8 mp front and 13 mp back camera – quite similar to other mobile phones, but what is different in this series is the 1.4 µm ultra pixel technology that enhances the resolution; allowing users to even capture the intricate details with better pixel ratio.

Apart from that, a feature which was not available in old Infinix Hot S X521eries smartphones is the dual-led backlight and a soft-light selfie flash for front camera feature. It allows the users to take intrinsic photographs even in the night without using other mediums of light, that too with clarity.


Operating System:

Built on Android, the Infinix Hot S X521 series smartphone has a custom firmware with in-built apps and better user flow. It uses XUI 2.0, a new user interface rolled out by the company, built on XOS chameleon. The major change is the addition of a freezer app that allows unused apps to be saved automatically without losing memory.

Battery Timings:

With 3000mAh battery and fast charging times, the user has the benefit of keeping the phone at his disposal at all places he wishes. The CEO of Infinix Andy Yang has said that this smartphone has exclusively been made for the public that creates content. “And the phone allows them to do that with ease.”

Screen Size:

Infinix Hot S X521 has a screen size of 5.2 inches and is available in five different colors:  pink, light blue, silver, black and light yellow. It has a metal body that protects the smartphone from loss breakage if it accidentally falls on the ground.

Finger Print Sensor:

Another technology that was not available in old Infinix smartphones is the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor does serve the purpose of identification but apart from that it also allows users to call and take pictures. Users can also set custom actions on fingerprint sensor based on their preference.

Processor and Memory:

The phone uses the octa-core (8-core) processor and has a storage capacity of 128 GB.

Magic Movie:

The XOS Chameleon has a built-in app that allows users to make short movies using templates available in Magic Movie app. These can then be shared on social media platforms, saved in the phone.

The next step:

CEO Andy Yang has hinted the team will be launching another hot series smartphone in the next few months. Though, no word is said about its price or features.

Where to buy Infinix Hot S X521?

The phone is available for purchase at Yayvo and Daraz.

Infinix Earpiece XE02 – Total noise cancellation:

Infinix Pakistan has also launched Infinix Earpiece XE02 in Pakistan. The earpiece is intricately designed to cancel any external noise. These exclusive earpiece need to be charged in order to provide complete noise cancellation. The XE02 works for 10-hours on a single charge. A battery pack powers the noise cancellation feature. The battery pack is a cylindrical tube next to the volume control.

Our take:

Though the smartphones by Infinix are of quality, there is no doubt about that but the company has still not produced anything targeting the lower strata of the market. It seems like GFive, QMobile, Motorola (imported) smartphones still serve the > 10,000 rupee category.

One smartphone Infinix Hot 3 X554 that is available for 10,000 rupees cannot match the quality of phones from other brands that are available for less.
